Rescue Me ID: 16-05-01-00004Staci (female)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Staci is the cutest and sweetest little American Bulldog mix you will ever meet. She's 4 years old and was recently surrendered by her owners because they were moving. When I took her out of her kennel, she was the happiest and most affectionate girl! Some dogs are more interested in their surrounding than in humans, but Staci pranced outside to promptly lay in my lap and roll around on the grass. I absolutely adore her, and any family will be so lucky to have her. Please consider coming to meet her to see if you will be that lucky family! This organization has a policy that adopters live within 50 miles of Tinley Park.

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Adult

    We believe Danni to be an American Bulldog and Dalmatian mix. She is approximately 7 years old and weighs just over 50 lbs. Danni is a STUNNING, blue-eyed beauty who love, love, LOVES people. Like many other dogs with her physical appearance, Danni is deaf. She has worked very, very hard with her foster dad in overcoming her disability and is MORE than ready to show everything she has learned to her forever family. A forever home should be patient, active, and willing to learn how best to communicate with and lead Danni. She is a dog who is very busy. She would like nothing better than to go for a nice, controlled walk with her ... (Read More)forever person daily. One of her favorite past-times is trotting on a treadmill! (Please take a moment to watch her video at https://vimeo.com/46980402!) Danni has learned to enjoy the company of the other dogs in her foster home, but may need some time to adjust to another dog in her adoptive home. 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. 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.

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. Some American Bulldogs can jump six feet in the air. The American Bulldog is a much closer relative of the Old English Bulldog than the modern English Bulldog is.
