Now that the Seattle Seahawks have won Super Bowl XLIX, it’s time for the Seattle Dog Club to make the big jump to a new home.
The club is looking for a bull terrier, a bullmastiff, a mongrel or a bull mix.
Seattle Dog Co-Founder, Tom Bohns, told Recode in a phone interview that Seattle Dog’s board of directors has decided to give them the OK to take the bulldogs.
Seattle is also looking for more dogs to adopt.
The Seattle Dog Society says there are currently more than 200 dogs available for adoption in Seattle.
In the last year, Seattle has adopted more than 20 bull terriers, two mongres, three bulldogs, two bullmastiffs, one bull mix, two collies, one dog mix, one Labrador retriever, two poodles, one golden retriever and a golden retrievable.
It’s not known if there are any other dogs in the city that are interested in adopting.
Bohns said the Seattle Animal Care and Control Commission recently released its first draft of the bulldog adoptability rules.
“The draft rules were designed to give us some guidance,” Bohn said.
“What we’re seeing now, I think, is that the general public has been really open to adopting, and I think it’s really just a matter of time before that changes.”
Bonded by the love of dogs Benni said that when he adopted a dog in 2011, he had no idea it would be adopted into a family.
The dog was named Bella.
He said he was told by the shelter that it had already been adopted.
“I had no way of knowing,” Benni recalled.
“The shelter was saying, ‘Oh, this dog’s already been found.
This dog has been adopted.’
I was like, ‘No, this isn’t going to work.'”
Bennis said he felt like he was missing out on his adopted dog.
“When I started looking around, I didn’t see any dogs that were adopted that were bonded together by a lot of love,” Berni said.
Bennisi said that he’s since adopted a new dog, a collie, with a love of animals.
He has a history with dogs.
He was the owner of a German shepherd called Fisch.
He also has two dogs, a miniature bulldog and a rottweiler.
“It’s amazing,” Bensi said of the bond between his dogs.
“It’s so different from what we’ve had in our lives before.”
‘We can’t wait for them’ for adoptionAfter seeing the success of the dogs, Bohn added, the Seattle City Council is considering adopting a similar policy for dogs in need of adoption.
Bohn explained that a shelter’s policy on adopting a dog is different from its own, and that shelter staff will make sure that a dog that is in need can be adopted before they need a foster home.
“We have a policy where we will adopt a dog from our adoption program, but that dog will have to be bonded together,” Bahn said.
The shelter is currently in the process of making a decision on which dogs will be eligible for the adoptability policy.
