Rescue Me ID: 17-09-20-00611Olaf (male)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Olaf is a big, gentle, snugly sweet hunk of a 14-month-old, 70-pound tall male white American Bulldog/Lab-mix with one blue eye and one brown eye looking for a loving guardian. Olaf loves people and gets along just fine with most other dogs.%A0He rides nicely in the car and walks beautifully on leash unless he sees a bunny or squirrel to chase. Olaf landed at the Richland County Animal Shelter in Illinois shelter when his human could no longer take care of him. His original owner passed away and the guy's son tried to keep him on his land. But, without a fence, Olaf kept straying under the neighbor's barbed wire fence to play with and ... (Read More)chase the cattle on the farm next door. He has a jagged scar on his right shoulder from the barbed wire. Their animal control officers dubbed him the sweetest dog to ever live and sent him to me in Chicago to find him a home preferably without cows to chase! He is perfectly housebroken and instead of being crate-trained, he likes to hop onto the top of his crate to sleep. He is best with someone who is home more often than not that enjoys long walks. He doesn't seem to know commands but he takes treats incredibly gently from your fingers. It's interesting, for a country dog, he has no fear of trains, or any other loud noises ... and no, he's not deaf! Olaf is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm and fecal-tested and on monthly heartworm preventative. To meet and possibly adopt Olaf, please contact sheri@petraits.com for an adoption application. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Petraits. He is being fostered in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. (Less)

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. American Bulldogs have fought wild dogs, bulls, and even fire while defending their masters. The American Bulldog is a much closer relative of the Old English Bulldog than the modern English Bulldog is.
