    Larry is a very loyal, loving, sweet boy who wants to be right with his humans at all times. He will take time to warm up, as he is fearful and reactive to strangers initially. He can, if the time is taken to introduce and transition with patience be with other dogs. He is best suited for a quiet home. Loves to go for walks, but is reactive so care must be taken to leave distance between Larry and strange people and dogs. With work and patience this can improve. He has allergies, so is on a specific food and can have no scraps of any kind. The food is no more expensive than average quality dog food, and is delivered. It is vegan. It is ...

    Solo is a 90 lb loving, loyal, protective dog who is easily trained and knows basic commands. He is also spoiled and would not do well tied up or crated too long. Great watchdog. Only gets along with my other dog, Vader, who is also on this site. It would be great if they could be adopted together. Due to health issues I must sell my house and move to suitable housing which does not accept large dogs.

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.

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. 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.
