Rescue Me ID: 14-08-23-00238Apollo (male)

American Bulldog    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Gorgeous, tuxedo, 7 mth old, male, American Bulldog puppy named Apollo in need of new home. We regretfully have to rehome him due to not having enough time to dedicate to the daily needs he deserves and requires. Our 18 mth old son has become quite active. Apollo is already almost 80 lbs and doesn't realize how big and strong he is, so we are forced to crate him far more than we would like. He is potty and crate trained. Friendly with people and other animals he has met thus far. He will be a large dog once full grown, so will require someone with prior experience with large bully breed dogs. Not recommended for households with children ... (Read More)under 10 due to his size and strength. Shots are current and he has been on heart worm preventative since we got him. Apollo already knows basic commands; sit, stay, down, etc, but will definitely require more training with his behavior. He is loves to jump on the couch, but when told to get down he becomes mouthy. Putting the leash on him is usually all it takes for him to get off. We think if he had the exercise he needs, he will not be as unruly. We will also sell his crate for $50 if needed. If you have patience and love large bully breed dogs he might be the one for you. Email me. Thanks! (Less)

American Bulldog    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    This sweet dog was rescued by my brother. Achilles was in such bad condition, he had been caged for almost all his life which he shared with two adult pits that used to bite him and be aggressive towards him. Achilles is not a bad dog, he is good with my three year old nephew and with five other dogs who live in the building (3 chihuahuas,2 pits). He has a tendency of being overprotective and has signs of aggressive behavior towards strangers which I will say is more likely anxiety and fear. There has been a couple of times he has tried to charge at little breed dogs in the dog park however, he will just toss them around but not bite. Other ... (Read More)than this isolated incidents he is such a sweet dog,he loves hugs and treats, he likes to play ball and snoozes on the couch. Achilles has basic training like,sitting,down,give me your paw and he loves giving high fives. I wish to find a good home for him since we can no longer keep him because we already have three family dogs. Any information needed feel free to contact me. Thanks (Less)

American Bulldog    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats

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 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. To meet and possibly adopt Dawson, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net or 708-224-1900. His adoption fee of $200 benefits rescued dogs. He is currently living in a foster home in Chicago, Illinois. (Less)

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)

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. American Bulldogs are descended from indigenous English Mastiffs that lived in the British Isles before the arrival of Caesar. Some American Bulldogs can jump six feet in the air.
