    Wrigley aka Wriggles is a very loving family dog. She is great with kids all ages and size. She is a gentle girl who enjoys sun bathing, walks and tossing a ball around from time to time. She has been housebroken for years. Wriggs likes to sleep under the kids beds but is also crate trained as well. Wriggs will need a home with a fenced in yard. She was raised with several animals however can be dominant so is important for her to be the only pet in the house. It is great heartache to my family having to rehome Wriggles however due to a foreclosure it has been extremely difficult finding a affordable home where we can include her. She truly ...

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 

    Pete 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. Pete is great with people of all ages. 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. Pete 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 family likes to keep him healthy ... (Read More)and he is very food-motivated. Currently being fostered in Chicago's South Loop neighborhood, Pete 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. He is 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. Pete has a strong prey drive so he's best in a home without cats, rabbits or other small pets. Pete 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 Pete, please contact Kat at kat@fcacc.org or if you have questions for his current foster mom, please contact Ania at 312-730-6687. (Less)

Animal ID: 2872Prada (female)

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: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    It is my pleasure to introduce you to Prada! There is much to say about this wonderful girl whose smile will melt your heart. Prada is approximately 2 1/2 years old, but it is a guess because she was found as a stray by animal control. She appears to be a Amstaff mixed with English bulldog weighing in at 50lbs. She was producing milk at the time she was taken by animal control. She continued to produce milk after coming to the H.E.L.P family. A doctors visit determined she was having a false pregnancy and having her spayed would put her body back in balance. Sure enough Prada is now a happy, healthy pup. This girl has a pure heart and wants ... (Read More)to share her love with you. Unfortunately, it is clear that Prada had some hardships in her short time on this earth. She can sometimes be shy of her head being touched or fast moving hands towards her. She will put her head down and freeze in place until she knows you are safe. Then Prada will melt in your lap for pets and kisses. She has not once shown aggression to children or adults and has passed her temperament tests with flying colors. Sadly, Prada has shown food and toy aggression towards other dogs sometimes without prediction. To be safe, her forever home should not have any dogs or cats. Prada wants to be spoiled, and loves any type of affection. She will be your princess, your best friend, your cuddle bug. Don't let her tough appearance fool you, her smile always shows her true heart. Her forever home should be one that understands that Prada had a rough start, but do not judge a book by the first chapters. She charms everyone she meets with her happy 'oinks,' and classic bully smile. She deserves a life of love and peace. Could you be her forever home and give her a happily ever after? (Less)

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)

    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.

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.
