American Bulldog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Yahtzee is a one year old ball of playful energy! He's an American Bulldog/pittie mix who came into the shelter as an unclaimed stray. He has a wonderful temperament - he's immediately affectionate and confident with all people. He's a high energy dog who will benefit from lots of exercise and play - maybe he can be a running partner or go for hikes? Yahtzee would be good with older children 10 and up who can handle his exuberance - he gets excited and jumps up, but it's only to lick your face! This bundle of joy would be suitable for another dog of similar energy - he'd love a play partner. He's very intelligent, so training would be a ... (Read More)great way to direct some of his excitement into something productive. if you're looking for an active, fun-loving partner for adventures, just yell, 'Yahtzee!' (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-20-00836Salsa (female)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Salsa is a sweet, cuddly and gentle 18-month-old, 60-pound, female brindle and white Boxer/American Bulldog/Pit Bull/Great Dane-mix looking for a loving guardian. She can be a little shy at first, but warms up quickly and is an incredibly loving and playful companion. She is full of kisses and tail wags. Salsa absolutely loves all other dogs and will be happiest in a home with another canine. She is perfectly housebroken, crate-trained and non-destructive in the home. Her foster mom doesn't even crate her at all. Salsa is a good and athletic running partner but she can be strong and stubborn on leash - especially when she sees other dogs ... (Read More)she wants to play with. She'll be phenomenal in training class as she's very food-motivated and super smart. She already knows the commands sit, stay, down, come, and off. She loves to play fetch but equally loves a snuggle session on the couch. She is quiet in the home so she can easily live in a condo, apartment, townhouse or a house with a yard. However, she will loyally bark when she wants to alert you. Her only faults if she has to have some, is that she gets car-sick and she snores. Sadly, Salsa was rescued from a 75-year-old woman who was beating her with a stick with nails in it. She was horribly bloody and beat up when she arrived at Chicago Animal Care and Control. She was full of staples and stitches and caught kennel cough followed by pneumonia after entering the city shelter. When she was finally and luckily transferred to a foster home, she weighed only 40 pounds and didn't trust people. Now, thanks to a loving foster mom she's done a 180 and has learned how kind and fun humans can be. Salsa is now extremely healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm and fecal-tested and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. To meet and possibly adopt Salsa, please contact Kat at kat@fcacc.org for an adoption application, or if you have further questions about Salsa, please contact her foster mom Jennifer at 219-794-4045.

(Please take a moment to watch her video at https://vimeo.com/46980402!)

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.

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. American Bulldogs are descended from indigenous English Mastiffs that lived in the British Isles before the arrival of Caesar. American Bulldogs have fought wild dogs, bulls, and even fire while defending their masters.
