Rescue Me ID: 14-07-16-00677Dozer (male)

American Bulldog    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 

    Very sweet dog that loves cuddling on the couch and belly rubs. Gets along with most dogs but occasionally meets a dog that doesn't like him. Recommend older kids because of his size and he likes to jump. Loves everyone he meets. He does have allergy issues that we are working on. He will be fully vaccinated at time of adoption and will give new owner a crate and several months of heartworm pills and frontline. For a loving home only, please no inquiries for a guard dog, he does not have the temperament for that and deserves a nice home.

American Bulldog    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    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    Age: Young Adult

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

    Pebbles is a big, goofy four-year-old, 80-pound, female American Bulldog looking for a loving guardian. Pebbles loves people and she loves to please. She has quickly learned the commands sit and paw. She is a super snuggler who loves to be pet and touched. In fact, she has no idea how big she is and tries to sit in your lap. She likes children, but she's a food thief, so she's probably best in a home with teenagers and adults. We don't know a lot about Pebbles past, but she's not big on other animals. She's looking for a home as the one and only pet where she'll get the love and walks, and car rides that she adores. Inside the home, she's ... (Read More)happy to self-entertain with her balls and toys. Pebbles is crate-trained and perfectly housebroken. She is very healthy, de-wormed, spayed, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccinations, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. To meet and possibly adopt Pebbles, please contact her foster mom Diane at dianebotica@gmail.com or 312-914-8079.

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-13-00332Brody (male)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi my name is Brody. I am a spunky 5-year-old 60 lb. American Bulldog/American Staffordshire mix. My favorite thing in this entire world is snuggling. I will sit on anyone's lap as long as they will let me. I live with 5 other dogs but I'm not exactly playful. I just hang out with them but that is about it. I don't mind if any of them knock into me or stand on me but I am just not the wrestling type. I do have a little too much interest in small animals so no cats, rabbits or other small animals for me. I haven't lived the easiest life. I was found abandoned in Chicago and taken to a kill shelter. I was covered in scars but the volunteers ... (Read More)saw that all I wanted was to be loved and to give love. So they helped me find a rescue and foster home to care for me until I find my forever family. I am crate trained and housetrained. I have been left alone for up to 8 hours but would love to live with someone who is home more of the time than not. I really am just a big lovable lug who wants nothing more than to find a family to love me forever. I am also up to date on my vaccinations, monthly preventative, neutered and microchipped. If you would like to be my forever family, please fill out an application so you can meet me. (Less)

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.

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)

Rescue Me ID: 12-08-23-00188Lucky (male)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

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