Rescue Me ID: 15-04-17-00089Hamilton (male)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hamilton is an adorably squishy faced adult bulldog who has a hearty love of life! He's friendly, goofy, playful, and affectionate. Hamilton came to ACL as a stray, and it's likely that he was kept outside for most of his life. Despite that, he's so fun-loving and good-natured, and he responds amazingly to affection and attention. Even though he's a mature dog, he's very energetic, and he'll need exercise and enrichment like dog beaches, dog parks, and lots of fun walks. He's comfortable with other dogs, but he'd be happiest just hanging out with some cool people. If you're looking for a sweet-tempered goofball, Hamilton is the man for you!

    Spike is hunky, five-year-old, 75-pound, male American Bulldog looking for a loving guardian. Spike has a head the size of a bowling ball. He was dropped off at Chicago Animal Care and Control when his family couldn't take care of him anymore. Spike loves belly rubs and snuggles. He loves to follow his people around the house, and he loves to play fetch. He also loves his squeaky toys. Spike is perfectly housebroken - no crate needed - and will sit for a treat. He is friendly with most other dogs. And, he's also good in the car and loves to go on his three walks a day. Spike can be stubborn and lazy and if he doesn't want to budge, he'll ...

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-03-00337Foxy (female)

American Bulldog    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Our town home bylaws no longer accept this breed, so the dogs got to go. Fantastic guard dog, perfect for a farm or someone who loves bully breeds. She is beautiful and loving, only has a few years left probably. Sometimes a handful on walks and with other animals, but nothing an aware owner can't manage. Single pet home or fenced yard would be nice. She will be going to the shelter within the week. Please save my dog, I can make monthly donations, she just needs a roof. She has always been house kept, no diseases or known heath issues.

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-20-00572Petey (male)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Petey is a very friendly, sweet, playful and lovable three-year-old, 64-pound, male, black and white Boxer/American Bulldog-mix with warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian. Petey is great with people of all ages - including small children. He's relaxed and not at all hyper or jumpy. He's wonderful in the home and leans against you lovingly. He is a homebody who loves being with his people. He loves a fenced-in yard, enjoys playing with his toys and is perfectly housebroken. Petey is extremely responsive to his people. He is well-trained and knows the commands sit and stay. His favorite treats are bananas and apples; his foster ... (Read More)family likes to keep him healthy and he is very food-motivated. Currently being fostered in Chicago's South Loop neighborhood, Petey is just not a city guy. He is reactive on leash and nervous in the city. He'd rather have a yard of his own to run and play in and a more suburban neighborhood without all the noise and congestion. So he is looking for a home that definitely has a secure fenced-in yard. He is currently living in a foster home with another large dog. He is best with male dogs - especially labs and bully breeds who don't mind his rough manner of play. Petey has a strong prey drive so he's best in a home without cats, rabbits or other small pets. Petey is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, heartworm-tested and micro-chipped. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Animal Care and Control. To meet and possibly adopt Petey, please contact Kat at kat@fcacc.org or if you have questions for his current foster mom, please contact Ania at pniewska.ania@gmail.com or 312-730-6687. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-06-00190CASPER (male)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    DOB 3/11/13 Meet our beautiful, gentle, loving, smart Casper! His breed is a mystery with guesses of Boxer/Blue Heeler/American Stafford Terrier/Dalmation. He is approximately 1 1/2 yrs old and was surrendered to a kill shelter in KY. His owner loved him very much but like so many people in this economy found himself in a position where he could no longer care for Casper. Casper's foster mom writes: He loves to play fetch, go for walks daily and play with other dogs. While he is the smallest dog in his home he loves playing with his much larger foster brother and sister. Casper spent 3 months in a kennel in KY and has now been in a foster ... (Read More)home for 5 months. Casper is housebroken, loves to go on walks, and after just one week he earned the right to have freedom of our entire home with our pets. Casper is indifferent to our cat, and doesn't chase or stalk the cat. Casper understands basic commands: sit ,walk, stay ,leave it and his name. He will take food gently from your hand, gives kisses for free and will follows you throughout the house. He rides well in a car and will make someone a wonderful, loyal companion. Casper does not like to be crated but since he is so well behaved his foster mom has not had to crate him. Casper suffers from the bully breed reputation%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD|%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD|and has received very few inquiries%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD|. Casper is well behaved, good with dogs, loves people and is an overall clown. Do not miss out on this wonderful dog simply because he might be part Bully Breed. (Less)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Deaf 

    We believe Danni to be an American Bulldog and Dalmatian mix. She is approximately 7 years old and weighs just over 50 lbs. Danni is a STUNNING, blue-eyed beauty who love, love, LOVES people. Like many other dogs with her physical appearance, Danni is deaf. She has worked very, very hard with her foster dad in overcoming her disability and is MORE than ready to show everything she has learned to her forever family. A forever home should be patient, active, and willing to learn how best to communicate with and lead Danni. She is a dog who is very busy. She would like nothing better than to go for a nice, controlled walk with her ... (Read More)forever person daily. One of her favorite past-times is trotting on a treadmill! (Please take a moment to watch her video at https://vimeo.com/46980402!) Danni has learned to enjoy the company of the other dogs in her foster home, but may need some time to adjust to another dog in her adoptive home. All-in-all, Danni is super fun and will be a great addition to the right home. If you are interested in becoming Danni's new best friend, please e-mail us at petadoptions@illinoishumane.org. (Less)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids)

    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.
