Rescue Me ID: 14-12-14-00486Roxy (female)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Roxy. Roxy showed up on our doorstep one evening. We don't know where she came from but she was malnourished, had a rope mark around her neck, and was producing milk. We looked for an owner to no avail. We had her checked out and vaccinated and our neighbors have been fostering her ever since. They can not continue to foster her much longer as her caregiver has been diagnosed with cancer and is getting treatment. Roxy is a very sweet girl that deserves a loving home. She will need training as she loves to jump up and gets very excited (happy excited). She likes to chase cats, so would be better in a home where there weren't any. I'm ... (Read More)going to say she'd probably not do well with kids either due to the jumping (she's a strong girl). She needs someone that will help her expend that energy!! She will need to be spayed but is current on her vaccinations. (Less)

    Sweet Sammy...what can I say? He is a gentle, easy going,well mannered, and devoted boy. He came to his foster home from the streets of Chicago. He is now house trained as long as someone is home to let him outside. Sammy is also crate trained, but please not all day. This boy sleeps in his foster mom's room all night without a sound, and likes that. Sammy would do best with someone home most the day to socialize and let him be a puppy! He wants to learn, an is a smart, quick learner. He is great with the other dogs at his foster home and is also good with the cats. He does play, so a cat that is used to dogs is best. He rough plays with his ... (Read More)dog BFF Bree who loves it, but not the others that don't. A fenced yard would be great, or regular leash walks and dog parks would be fun too! Sammy would do good with children also! His birthday is 3-12-14 , now 7 months, and 43.3#'s. With a basic obedience class and a devoted to him owner, Sammy will be the best companion dog! (Less)

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.

(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)

    Lucas is a great dog with a loving personality. Unfortunately, his current owner does not have the time for him and Lucas has been left alone very often. He needs work and socialization. Due to his lack of socialization, he has become aggressive. I know that if someone gave him a chance and the time he needs, he would be a faithful companion.

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Dawson is a happy, cuddly, wiggly, energetic, goofy and good-natured, three-year-old, 60-pound, male, Dogo Argentino or mix looking for a loving guardian. Rescued in Kendall County, Illinois, Dawson sits on command and takes treats gently from your fingers. He enjoys the company of other dogs - male and female. He's fine with cats that don't mind playful, energetic dogs. He loves people of all ages, but he is a bit clumsy, so best with adults and older children who he can't knock over. Someone cropped his ears in a strange manner, probably trying to make him look tough. He's a sweet and loving dog looking for a devoted family who will enjoy ... (Read More)daily outdoor exercise and will continue his training. He loves to go for runs and walks with his people. Dawson is healthy, housebroken, crate-trained, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm tested and on monthly preventative. To meet and possibly adopt Dawson, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net or 708-224-1900. His adoption fee of $200 benefits rescued dogs.

Rescue Me ID: 13-11-25-00538Capone (male)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Capone is a handsome, affectionate, playful, active and energetic, two-year-old, 65-pound, brindle and white, male American Bulldog/German Shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian. Capone has such great ears that his nickname is Bat Dog. The poor guy got off to a very rough start to his life; he and his littermates almost succumbed to Parvo. The vet chose to treat the sick puppies with the antibiotic Baytril which helped Capone fight infection, but damaged his hips. So, by the age of 18 months, he had surgery on both hips. You'd hardly know it now because he's still a happy, playful guy who gets the zoomies '| runs, jumps and plays! ... (Read More)Capone is living in a foster home where he is perfecting his housebreaking. He's 90% there! He already knows the commands sit and down and walks nicely on leash. He's also great in the car. He is a very loyal and loving dog who is looking for an experienced dog-lover who can deal with a fearful and protective dog. Capone does best with someone who will work with him and give him structure. Capone can be a bit dog selective. So, he'd be great as the only dog in your world, or he could live with another dog, but it's got to be the right dog. He is currently sharing his foster home with two Rottweilers with whom he gets along. He has not been cat-tested. To meet and possibly adopt Capone, please contact the K94Keeps Rescue at info@k94keeps.org or 312-221-9285. Capone is now healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. His adoption fee of $250 includes professional training sessions, and benefits the rescued dogs of K9 4 Keeps Rescue. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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. 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.
