Bullfrog

Bullfrog is the perfect pup. He gets his name because of his big ol’ belly that sticks out like a bullfrog’s. Bullfrog is a 3-month-old, 15-pound Australian cattle dog mix. He and his siblings were abandoned on a porch in Orange at the young age of 2 weeks. A human foster mom has tenderly and lovingly raised all the pups in Bullfrog’s litter. Bullfrog is one lovable, rambunctious boy!
