American Bulldog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Gypsy is a very well mannered, beautiful dog. She was raised with children. Unfortunately in the last two years she has bitten. We believe it was during her time in heat because she is not an aggressive dog. We prefer to re-home with someone with NO Children. She has never shown signs of aggression before and still is very well mannered. I need to re-home her to someone that has the time and space for her. Somewhere she can run free. Please call us. We can set up a meeting with Gypsy. If she is okay with you then we can move on visits and possible re-home. Thanks -Melissa 847-651-0789

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Vero is a goofy, funny, affectionate, loving all-around awesome American Bulldog mix. Vero came into ACL as a stray who was very frightened, but it didn't take long for him to fall in love with the staff and volunteers...and for us to fall in love right back! Vero loves love - he'll stop for a cuddle and a pet in the middle of a walk! He's great on his leash, and he's awesome with other dogs. He'd love to be a second or third dog to add to an existing pack. Vero is a fearful dog who was likely mistreated at some point in his life, so he needs a chill, adult household that doesn't mind going slow, being patient, and keeping Vero's life calm ... (Read More)and quiet. Vero has sad eyes, but don't let that fool you! He's a happy-go-lucky dude who is ready to find a gentle, loving family to live out his days. Vero is currently living happily in foster care, so please email Gabrielle at to set up a time to meet this gem! (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.

    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.
