    Graham is a snuggly hunk of a three-year-old, 70-pound, patch brindle male American Bulldog-Mix looking for a loving guardian. Graham loves everyone he meets - including children. He is an attentive and loving companion who brings a smile to everyone's face with his playful spirit and goofy antics. Graham's tail is always happily wagging; he is smart, friendly, playful, loving and sweet. He likes to be a part of whatever activity you're participating in; so, if you are working in the kitchen or at your desk he will most likely plop himself down at your feet. If he wants to play or go outside he will nudge your arm with his head to make ... (Read More)sure you know. His favorite things are bully sticks, rope toys, tug of war, sticks, large plastic juice containers and apples! Graham is housebroken, knows the commands sit, stay, go to your bed, waits to go out the door and come when called. Graham is great on leash and good in the car. He is looking for a home in a quiet neighborhood as the only pet in the home. To meet and possibly foster and/or adopt Graham, please contact Diana at drozimek@yahoo.com or 773-899-1960. Graham is very healthy, neutered, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm-tested. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. (Less)

    My job is changing, and I am looking to find a very good loving home for our dog. He is wonderful with adults, and children. Completely house broken, great with home & property, loves lots of attention and TLC. Will be extremely picky to whom he goes with. I would not put him with other dogs at this time, because he was attacked by a pit bull last summer. Not sure how he would act. Never been around cats. Was good with our parrot. Has no health problems, up to date on vaccinations. Just a very good, loving, loyal Boy.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Dottie and I am a younger girl, about 2 years old. I'm small, only around 42 lbs but could still use a few more lbs. I LOVE people (adults and kids)....and will follow you around all over...if there is action, I want to be there. I like to play in the yard, take walks, lounge in the sun and lay on the couch to watch TV. For the most part, I think I'm a lap dog. My foster family says I'm an easy dog. I'm a 5 on a scale of 10 for energy level. I guess my overly rambunctious days are behind me. I currently live with 2 other dogs (1 male and 1 female) and we get along nicely. I know commands such as no, sit, paw and stay, and I ... (Read More)take treats very gently. I would love to find an awesome forever home where my people will take care of me and love me. If you are interested in making me a part of your family, please apply online at digsk9.org Applicants must live within 75 miles of Joliet IL (Less)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    It's a spicy Meatball! This big lug of a dog is the definition of comfort food: warm, satisfying, and super beefy! Meatball is a one year old American Bulldog/Am Staff mix who came to ACL when a volunteer found him outside his work, running stray. Meatball is just the best - he's great with people of all ages, other dogs who match his vibe, and he might make the perfect companion to a dog-savvy cat. Meatball is easygoing and tolerant, and he loves absolutely everyone! He is quite the beefcake, so he could use some training to help him learn his size. He definitely prefers strong, confident handlers - like any good teenager, he likes to push ... (Read More)his boundaries and see what he can get away with! If you respond with firm, loving guidance and leadership, he falls right in line. He's not the best choice for a timid or hesitant handler, though. If you're feeling ravenous for love and affection, maybe you need to order a Meatball! (Less)

    Lucky was saved from a kill shelter at his last hour. He is a very sweet boy with people (don't know about children), but does not get along with other male and some female dogs. He has had no training, which would probably help, but would be best as an only dog. He knows how to use the doggie door to go potty. Loves to play fetch. Loves petting. We are in the St. Louis metro area (in IL)

PIease Read Before Adopting an American Bulldog in Illinois
    American Bulldogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The American Bulldog is an athletic, determined, loyal, and highly devoted breed. American Bulldogs are very affectionate towards children but should be supervised because of their strength. American Bulldogs are very protective of their masters and make great guard dogs. An American Bulldog can do fine in an apartment if it gets enough exercise and is walked daily. Like the English Bulldog, the American Bulldog tends to slobber.

American Bulldog
lnteresting American Bulldog Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The American Bulldog thrived in the colonial American South due to settlers' problems with feral pigs. American Bulldogs were their best means of controlling the pigs. American Bulldogs are descended from indigenous English Mastiffs that lived in the British Isles before the arrival of Caesar. Some American Bulldogs can jump six feet in the air. The American Bulldog is a much closer relative of the Old English Bulldog than the modern English Bulldog is.
