American Bulldog    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Peanut is an amazing, loyal, sweet boy that everyone that has ever gotten to know him have fallen in love with him. He is a beautiful and strong purebred and it is recommended that a strong, male handler preferably, adopt Peanut. Peanut likes to be near humans, but does not need constant attention or petting. I have moved to the city and his fear toward other dogs are causing lots of anxiety for him and me. I need to protect him and find a home that can give him the love but in an environment where there is little contact with other dogs. He is not a huge fan of walks, but lives to play ball. He can be left at home for a while if you work, ... (Read More)but he needs some sort of security, stability, and routine. He is incredibly healthy and has barely had to visit the vet his entire life, except for routine stuff. (Less)

Animal ID: 16-06-28-00466Josie (female)

American Bulldog    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    She is a beautiful, Smart, and goofy girl. Meet Josie, a 13 month old female brindle American Bulldog. She is house trained, spayed, and current on her vaccinations. She has passed level one obedience training at the Contented Canine's facility in Moline, IL and I am currently working on level two with her. Since Josie is a large canine that is full of energy and can be stubborn, she will need a patient yet firm leader/owner that will continue to work with her. She is a strong girl that likes to play rowdy at times but with the right guidance she can learn the proper way to play and socialize. Josie would do best in a home without cats, ... (Read More)although she is currently in a home that has two of them. With time and supervision they have learned to get along well. Children 6 and up are preferred due to Josie's size and energy. She is a dominant female who can get along with others, but it would be best for her to be in a home without another dominant dog. She has shown some signs of stranger danger but is being worked with on her socialization skills. Truly it is all about her excitement level when she is being introduced to people or other dogs. With training and patients she is learning how to properly meet others. She has also undergone CCL (ACL) surgery on her right back leg and will need to have the same surgery done on her left back leg. I am willing to cover that expense and just want to make sure she is placed in a great home. This beautiful miss didn't have a fair shake at a forever home but I hope to find someone out there just for her. She has all the love and affection in the world to share with that right owner that will stand by her. Need a Home Hopefully by August 2016. Willing to travel with her too. (Less)

Graham's tail is always happily wagging; he is smart, friendly, playful, loving and sweet.

If he wants to play or go outside he will nudge your arm with his head to make ... (Read More)sure you know. His favorite things are bully sticks, rope toys, tug of war, sticks, large plastic juice containers and apples! Graham is housebroken, knows the commands sit, stay, go to your bed, waits to go out the door and come when called. Graham is great on leash and good in the car. He is looking for a home in a quiet neighborhood as the only pet in the home. To meet and possibly foster and/or adopt Graham, please contact Diana at drozimek@yahoo.com or 773-899-1960.

Has no health problems, up to date on vaccinations. Just a very good, loving, loyal Boy.

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    It's a spicy Meatball! This big lug of a dog is the definition of comfort food: warm, satisfying, and super beefy! Meatball is a one year old American Bulldog/Am Staff mix who came to ACL when a volunteer found him outside his work, running stray. Meatball is just the best - he's great with people of all ages, other dogs who match his vibe, and he might make the perfect companion to a dog-savvy cat. Meatball is easygoing and tolerant, and he loves absolutely everyone! He is quite the beefcake, so he could use some training to help him learn his size. He definitely prefers strong, confident handlers - like any good teenager, he likes to push ... (Read More)his boundaries and see what he can get away with! If you respond with firm, loving guidance and leadership, he falls right in line. He's not the best choice for a timid or hesitant handler, though. If you're feeling ravenous for love and affection, maybe you need to order a Meatball! (Less)

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)

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. Some American Bulldogs can jump six feet in the air.
