Dog of the Week: Matilda

Listen to the content of this post:

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – This week’s “Dog of the Week” is Matilda!

Matilda is just under five years old. She is an English bulldog who is ready to be adopted.

Reginia Brabham from Critical Care for Animal Angels says Matilda has a big personality. Some might even say this bulldog is a diva.

She enjoys playing ball, giving kisses and displaying lots of affection towards people. She also likes to just hang out and relax.

Brabham says Matilda would fit perfectly in a family with older children and no other pets. She is not as good with other dogs and cats.

Matilda is currently in good health. She has been to the vet and has received all her shots.

English bulldogs usually require more care than other dogs. Because of the breed and physical features the dogs have, Brabham warns adopters to tend to Matilda’s health needs daily and be prepared for more costly vet bills if an issue is found.

If you’re interested in adopting Matilda or any other dogs from Critical Care for Animal Angels, head to the Critical Care For Animal Angels Facebook page.

  Kristen Kennedy joined the 41NBC First Alert Storm Team in May 2016. Kristen is not new to the state of Georgia - she was born and raised in Roswell, just north of Atlanta. Kristen developed a passion for weather at an early age - as early as the third grade! Her excitement and interest in meteorology continued throughout her years of higher education. Kristen graduated Summa Cum Laude from Mississippi State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Geosciences, concentrating in Professional Meteorology with Broadcast Emphasis. She also has a minor in Broadcast Communications. In college, Kristen was a member of the broadcast meteorology program's Campus Connect Forecast where she produced and recorded forecasts weekly, reported weather hits for radio, wrote forecast updates for the student newspaper and worked extensively on social media. She also won 2nd Place in the College Mississippi Associated Press Broadcasters awards banquet for the Best College Weathercast. Aside from her time forecasting the weather in college, Kristen also interned at WSB-TV, a local news station in Atlanta, during the summer of 2015. When she's not monitoring weather conditions, Kristen is probably talking or watching sports. She grew up watching her brothers play and even got involved in a few sports herself. Kristen loves college football, though she is biased towards the SEC. She notes that Saturdays down south in the fall are arguably some of the best days of the year. She has always been an Atlanta Braves fan, and she also enjoys watching the Atlanta Falcons and the Atlanta Hawks battle it out against their opponents. Kristen also loves the outdoors and exploring new locations to hammock with a view. She constantly has an eye to the sky, and eagerly awaits sunset each day - hoping for a colorful sky to capture with her camera. She is excited to finally experience some beautiful sunrises now that she's working the morning side of the day. You can catch Kristen's forecasts daily on 41 Daybreak from 5-7 AM and on 41 Today at 11 AM.
