Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
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 New Jersey?
New Jersey has a lot going for it for animal lovers, including great adoption rates at its shelters and high numbers of pet services. However, a few cities in New Jersey bring the state’s score down a bit overall.
Pawsafe ranks New Jersey as the 18th most dog-friendly state in the country. Their in-depth study ranks all 50 states according to key pet health indicators like dog care costs, walkability, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws. New Jersey ranked fairly high for Pawsafe because of the strong number of pet services available in the state. Pawsafe placed New Jersey 10th in this regard.
However, a similar study from Safewise reached a much different conclusion. Their study rated New Jersey as the fifth least pet-friendly state. A few less dog-friendly cities in packed metropolitan areas primarily drove this low ranking.
Are cities in New Jersey good for pet ownership?
Another study, by WalletHub, analyzed the 100 largest cities in the United States to find the most pet-friendly cities. While a few cities in New Jersey did make it onto the list, they didn’t rank very high.
Newark placed 98th out of the 100 cities included in the study.
There are several reasons Wallethub classified Newark as one of the least pet-friendly cities. It has the fewest pet businesses and the third least dog-friendly restaurants per capita. The city also has the fewest veterinarians and some of the highest pet care costs.
And, Newark ranked last as one of the only four major cities without a single dog park. So, while your pup can of course still be safe and happy in Newark, you may find it takes a little extra money and effort to get the care she needs.
Jersey City ranks a bit higher than Newark across those same measures. Wallethub’s rankings have Jersey City as 78th for pet-friendliness among the major cities.
A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study revealed that Jersey City has the 12th highest number of dog parks per capita, with 2.5 dog parks per 100,000 residents.
A few more numbers for New Jersey’s dogs
Only 29% of New Jersey residents own a dog, which is well below the national average of 40%. The state’s total pet ownership rate is low, as well. Only 47% of New Jersey families own a pet.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in New Jersey
New Jersey does a pretty good job with saving animals in shelters. The state saved 2,226 more animals in 2020 than in 2019. And 49 of the state’s 80 animal shelters are no-kill shelters. The overall save rate for the state is slightly over 87%, making New Jersey close to the 90% mark necessary to be a no-kill state.
