Dog is Obsessed with Plastic Bins

April Livingston | April 30th, 2018

For a little bulldog named Buggy, life started out fairly rough. He’s been through a lot, but now that he is safe and has a loving family he has a favorite place. Buggy absolutely loves to be in plastic bins. He lives in Chicago with his family now, after being discovered abandoned in a riverbed. He was just four months old at the time and was rescued by the NorCal Bully Breed Rescue and a woman named Leslie Bird. When he was rescued and taken to a veterinarian, it was discovered that he had quite a few serious health issues. These ailments are suspected to be a result of irresponsible breeding—and it was believed he was abandoned because of these problems.

Veterinarians discovered that Buggy had luxating elbows in his front legs which meant he had great difficulty walking. He also had an elongated palate and just one nostril, which led to difficulty breathing. But Buggy is a survivor and he found a way to thrive despite these issues. Buggy helps himself to breathe by falling asleep with an object in his mouth, like the rung of a stool for example. It helps to soothe him as well, which results in some adorable photo opportunities as well.

Buggy underwent several surgeries, so that he can breathe better and also walk. Surgeons were able to give him a second nostril and shorten his palate to make breathing possible. However, that habit of finding something to put in his mouth when he falls asleep has stuck. These days, he just loves to sit inside a plastic bin so he can comfortably rest his mouth. He’s not picky though; he loves a good laundry basket as much as a bin. Buggy now has a wonderful life with his new family, where he has doggy siblings to keep him company—and as many plastic bins as he wants.
