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. American Bulldogs have fought wild dogs, bulls, and even fire while defending their masters.
