Dogs Named Waffles

Close up front view - A brown with white Bully Basset dog is sitting on a couch and its head is tilted to the left.

"This is Waffles, my English Bulldog / Basset Hound mix (Bully Basset). He is full grown now and just turned 2 years old. Waffles is about 40 lbs. and full of life and energy. He is by far the best dog I have ever owned. He is very quick to learn new things, and seems to pick up on everyday phrases fairly easy. Waffles has days where he can run around for hours, and others where he will do nothing but lie around and sleep. Waffles has never demonstrated any form of aggression toward other dogs, cats, children, or adults. I'm not sure where he got it, but Waffles can jump at least 4 feet high, which is odd, considering the breed mix. I have never had to teach Waffles to not chew on things that weren't his. He just always seems to know right from wrong. Waffles has never had any serious health issues. Although, like Basset Hounds, his ears do require regular cleaning. From the moment I got Waffles, he has been a complete joy and I cannot imagine a life without him. I couldn't dream of a better breed mix."

A soft-looking, wavy-coated, white with tan Cockapoo is sitting on a sidewalk next to a potted plant and grass. Its mouth is open and tongue is out.

"Waffles is a wonderful dog. He is a mix between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle (Cockapoo). He doesn't bark (which is great if you live in an apartment) and he only sheds a little. We were hoping for a completely non-shedding dog, but he has so many other good qualities we will take a few hairs here and there."
