About Landry Olida (LJM)
Landry Olida (LJM) was recovered in Lousianna after she found herself in a shelter. The shelter staff posted her photo on social media hoping to find the right family. She was used by a local breeder – she is an Olde English Bulldog – her puppies worth $6,000 each. She was kept in a outside kennel … around trash and part of a cruetly case. Staff at the shelter loved her and worked with her to help her learn affection. She would just shut down, lay down and watch people – finch if someone came near her. Other dogs helped her come out of her shell; she would follow them and learned how to be ‘inside’ though she was still in a shelter. Several families met her but didn’t chose her because she was too shy. They guessed her to be about 6 years old, severly underweight and heartworm positive. Landry’s unique breed is popular in the south, a ‘new’ designer breed from 1970 which brough back the ‘healthier’ English Bulldog. In addition to its larger height and weight, the Olde English Bulldogge is more muscular than the English bulldog. Olde English have a longer mussle and wider nostrils eliminating the breathing problems of the current English Bulldog. ROAD TO RESCUE: Landry needed more time to learn and decompress. A volunteer drove 6 hours one way to go meet her and bring her back to Houston. Landry was confused. Being in a crate inside, scared her. Her foster family put the crate just inside the door so she could learn the routine. She never made a sound, no barking, no whining, just watching. She would potty in her crate and lay in it, reminding us – she only knew how to live in a ‘breeding pen.’ She learned the rouine – boucing out the backdoor and following her dog friends. For weeks she stood, two feet from the backdoor on the grass. She watched the other dogs play. She took interested to fetch and chasing balls, venturing into the yard to follow puppies. As a mature female – she is passive and gets along with other dogs. She worries about her food (growling at other dogs, only if they are at her crate while she eats inside) and is treat motivated. Landry needed time to gain weight and treated for heartworms. She has started to play with toys; she can destuff a toy within minutes and likes balls. During nap time, she crosses her paws and lays like a frog in her crate. She is potty trained to grass. Crated at night and she will retreat to a crate frequently for safety. She has been on field trips to stores and to meet other people. She looks to her foster mom for verbal instructions and other dogs for cues. She stays close to her people on walks. Her butt wiggles when her name is called and she follows her foster family; she is still unsure about asking for petting – but loves when her family holds and rubs her. Landry Olida is ready to be the center of attention, as someone’s beloved pet. She will still need time to adjust and learn. She is great with other dogs and could live with anything.
