Surf’s pup: Adorable British Bulldog spends his days surfing USA
Meet Dozer the British Bulldog who spends his days surfing USA.
Surf’s pup for the eight-year-old bulldog as he rides the waves in his native California.
Dozer has been hanging ten for the last six years and is a real pro thanks to his low centre of gravity.
Owner Doug Hokstad has had the combing canine since 2006 and takes him out on the sea every day.
Doug said: “Dozer loves being out on the waves every day which for bulldogs – that notoriously hate water – is strange.
“We took him out to watch a surfing event six years ago and he’s had the bug ever since.
“A board washed on to the beach and he immediately jumped on.
“It was next to impossible to get him off so the very next day we bought him his own along with a life vest.”
Doug puts Dozer’s impressive ability down to his low-centre of gravity and massive paws.
Both things used to impair him from playing fetch and Frisbee, but they make him excel at surfing.
Doug said: “Standing solid on the board with a gleam in his eyes he looks like he is born to surf.
“At eight-years-old Dozer is getting on a bit but I don’t see him stopping any time soon.
“Even if we tried he’d probably stop us – he just loves the life too much.”
