Bullmatian Puppies for Sale in Minnesota, MN
Bob formerly known as James is an awesome little guy. Feisty stubborn affectionate responsive not a dog for amateurs but he is perfect. He arrived on time as a well and happy little guy and we are family now.
The Bullmation is a very unique-looking, beautiful hybrid mix between a Bulldog and – you guessed it – a Dalmation. Kind, energetic, and intelligent, these dogs receive some of the best traits from each parent. Bullmations are usually very loving and friendly around children and other animals and are a top choice for a devoted household companion.
Standing between 11-24 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 40-65 pounds, the Bullmation is a larger domestic breed. They require relatively little grooming, and a couple of brushings a week will typically suffice. Because of their mixed heritage, they are likely to have the spots of the Dalmation, but these spots are often colors other than the iconic black spots we've all seen. You can see them in all sorts of looks!
These dogs have higher than average energy levels, and will likely be up for all the playtime or walks you can offer. Because of this, they don't do well in apartments and would be happier in a house with a backyard. They are playful and love spending time with their family.
While Bullmatians are highly loyal, some of them can develop a stubborn attitude from time to time, thanks to their intelligence. It’s key to train and socialize them correctly from an early age–and you might need a little extra dose of patience at first. Once they learn to feel safe with you and to see you as the leader, they’re incredibly devoted and faithful. Be sure to keep an eye on your Bullmation at the dog park, as they can be wary of dogs they've never met, and may allow their protective instinct to get the best of them.
How dog-friendly is Minnesota?
Minnesota has some excellent dog-friendly accommodations and services and is well on its way to becoming one of the more pet-friendly states. It’s a great place to own a dog!
We evaluated scores across two primary studies to get accurate state rankings. Both studies ranked states according to various pet-friendly criteria like animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and services, and the number of hiking trails and dog parks.
The first study, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Minnesota as 14th most pet-friendly state. This includes a good ranking for its animal welfare laws which evaluate laws against abuse, neglect and fighting.
Safewise, a national safety evaluator, ranked Minnesota as the 26th most pet-friendly state. A little lower than Pawsafe, but still doing pretty well comparatively.
Combining these two studies together puts Minnesota towards the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.
