Facts about Monroe Spuds McKenzie

  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Everyone please meet our newest potato girl, Monroe Spuds McKenzie!!! Monroe is a 5 year old (DOB: 11/25) female English Bulldog that was surrendered to our rescue by her elderly owner. Monroe is very very sweet and loves people, especially kids. She is too curious about other dogs (especially littles) so she needs a home without another dog. We are also looking for someone that has bulldog experience to provide her with the training and experience she will need. She is a lovely dog with people and would make a great only pet. Monroe has been spayed, is up to date on vaccination and is also microchipped. If interested in meeting or adoption Monroe, please go to www.lolr.org and fill out an adoption application.
