“Woof, woof. My name is Sarge and I am a 4-year-old English Bulldog. My parents are Dustin Manning and Lisa Garsee of Brantley. I love to eat anything I can get my paws on, but mom is strict with what she feeds me because I have bad food allergies. She makes me homemade treats with oats, peanut butter and pumpkin. My favorite food is watermelon. I was the biggest out of my siblings and the breeder nicknamed me Biggun. I enjoy laying in the grass, chewing on sticks, and watching the cows that live across the road. However, my favorite hobby is riding the jeep, especially when daddy takes me to the store and I get to see lots of people. I have two dog siblings and one cat sibling. My feline sister Jo Jo is my best friend.”

Sarge’s mom calls him rotten. His dad named him “Sarge” simply because the name sounded fitting. Both of his parents spoil him. Sarge gave his parents a scare when he had a bad allergic reaction and now he sleeps in the bed with his mom and dad every night and snores the entire time. His parents described him as childlike-funny, entertaining and clumsy. According to his mom, Sarge is very well potty trained but sheds relentlessly. He loves to take a bath and if his mom says the word BATH, he runs and gets in the tub and will not get out.
