Rescue Me ID: 18-06-14-00046Lance (male)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Lance is an active happy one year old boy who is able to walk several miles a day, run, jump, and do pretty much everything a normal dog will do. Lance is sixty pounds of pure puppy joy. He is a gentle and loving dog with amazing blue/gold eyes. He loves people and adores snuggling with his people. Lance has an amazing can-do personality and playful nature. Lance was found injured on the streets of San Antonio in April 2017. He was given a bed, and some time to recover. After a few weeks, Lance was listed for Euthanasia. Lance was was unable to sit or stand. He could not use his front legs well enough to be put in a regular wheelchair. At ... (Read More)first, nothing could really be found to pinpoint his injury, so he was started on gentle physical therapy and then swim therapy. He was given good food, lots of loving care, and started to use an all supportive wheelchair. About two months after his rescue, Lance started to stand up and later he began to walk. Lance came to Michigan July 2017. He captured the hearts of his transporters with his stunning eyes and vivacious personality. One volunteer asked to transport him the rest of the way to Michigan to his home, she was so taken with him. Lance began to run and jump in his new home. He was improving at a tremendous rate. After further vet assessment it was discovered he had dislocated a vertebra in his neck, just in front of his shoulders but that the area was stabilized and should not cause any issues in the future. Lance wears a gentle leader head collar that puts less stress on the neck area as a harness/collar could put too much pressure on the old injury site. Lance has feet that turn outward but although he looks a little different, he has no problems with mobility. Lance is eating a raw all natural diet, supplemented by premium dog food. He is on no special medications, but will need a patient and caring adopter to help him as his nerves continue to regenerate in his hindquarters. He is housetrained except for episodes of excitement that he sometimes cannot control. He likes to be clean and works hard to stay that way. With a little management he is pretty successful. Lance is now ready to look for his forever home, and in his current foster home has learned to walk on a leash, and he is also crate trained. Lance attended obedience training and knows many commands. He seems to want the company of other dogs, and likes to try to do whatever they do, so a laid back dog that knows the ropes would be an asset in his next home. Although Lance lived with a cat in his previous foster home, and has been around cats in his current home, he does show too much interest in them for us to recommend a home with indoor cats. Lance has played with older children briefly, but because we do not know his background Lance will be placed in a home with older dog-savvy children (10 and up). We are looking for a very special adoptive family for him that will be able to help him continue on his amazing journey. If you think that could be you - please send an inquiry today! Lance is fully vetted and microchipped. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-05-23-00541Dexter (male)

American Bulldog    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dexter was found wandering down the road at approximately 5 weeks old. I picked him up on my way to work, but after weeks of calling and posting to find his owners, we determined that he was not being looked for, so we got him neutered, immunized, and made him feel at home. Our two children love him, as does our elderly Shepherd mix, King. Dexter does very well when we have the time to walk him, play with him, and give him appropriate boundaries and corrections. Unfortunately with our busy lives we just aren't able to give Dexter the time and attention he needs to live up to his sweet potential. Dexter is very protective of his home and ... (Read More)family, and needs help knowing when to back down from strangers/guests. He responds very well to training and corrections, but will need some extra work as he is still a pup! He likes to chew, so he will need apporpriate toys to keep furniture and shoes safe! While we do not have official papers, two different vets and many friendly dog enthusiasts have said they believe him to be pure American bully. He certainly fits the description. We are only willing to adopt him to someone who truly wants to give this wonderful boy the time and affection needs to live a wonderful life. Fee is negotiable, but is meant to help cover cost of neutering. Dexter is approximately 7.5 months old. I marked unknown compatibility with dogs and other humans because while he is incredibly loving and gentle to us in the home, he does show aggression toward strangers and requires time to warm up to new people. We believe that with more socialization, he will improve in this area, but safety needs to be a priory so I felt a need to disclose. (Less)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lexi is a 7 yr old Bulldog/Pit mix looking for her forever home. Lexi is still fairly new so we're still getting to know her but we do know that she hasn't had a lot of socialization in her life. She will need someone with lots of time, patience, and willingness to work with her on meeting new people and other dogs. She would like a home without young children to live out her senior years in a quiet environment. She's extremely sweet and a very well behaved girl. Lexi is completely vetted, spayed, housebroke, and crate trained. Her adoption fee is $150 with an approved application (plus the fee towards mileage for any home visit/possible ...

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hogan is a big lover boy & will make someone a wonderful, loyal companion! He came into rescue after he was found as a stray & his owners never stepped forward for him. Hogan is dog selective, so if you have an existing dog, a meet and greet would be essential. This boy is very smart & LOVES car rides! He can be strong on the leash as times but he is learning his manners & doing very well. Due to his size, children younger than 12 is not recommended. Hogan is guessed to be approximately 3 years old, approx 76 lbs, neutered, Heartworm negative, crate-trained, up to date on all vaccines, parasite-free and microchipped. Contact Streethearts ...

PIease Read Before Adopting an American Bulldog in Michigan
    American Bulldogs can make good pets in Michigan 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 Michigan 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.
