American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    All Subby wants for Christmas is a HOME! What a big goofball this fella is! At 70 lbs of muscle and lots of love he will entertain and be a great companion to keep someone company! Subby is one of a kind and a pure gentleman! He LOVES people! We had a DNA test performed on Subby and the results of his breed are American Staffordshire Terrier, Bulldog, and Boxer.... Did you know that the American Staffordshire Terrier won best in show for the Terrier group at the National Dog Show??!! We took Subby into our organization as a courtesy foster dog to help him get through his heartworm treatment which he had only a mild case. He flew ... (Read More)through treatment with flying colors and had no complications. He is ready for a home of his own! He would love a walker, someone who enjoys the outdoors as much as he does......Also a fenced in yard or leashed walks only please! Subby is very well behaved in the home AND in public! Listens well and is excellent on leash and goes for 3 daily walks. He is GREAT with older children over 8 years old (due to his size and strength, this is best), loves to play with toys, and enjoys chewing on bully sticks or stuffed frozen peanut butter Kongs. Subby also loves mental enrichment activities such as treat dispensing balls, playing hide and seek with toys, nose work, and tearing apart boxes that are filled with goodies! Subby came to us and did not have basic manners so we have been working on this with him to increase his impulse control and making him a gentleman! Subby does know sit, down, stay, 'leave-it', working on recall, focus, and drop it. He will sit at doors to come in and out, he will 'wait' to be released to eat his food, and he loves to go for car rides and most of all the drive thru at McDonald's where he can receive a vanilla ice cream cone and chicken nuggets. This boy has been a WONDERFUL foster dog but it is time for him to find a family of his own! Subby is a 2-3 year old male that is fully vetted including current on heartworm and flea/tick preventative! House and crate trained (would do best with no long extended hours or blocked off in an area of his own), and cuddles on the couch! Subby does like other dogs that are medium to larger in size with proper introductions and prefers females over males but loves people more and would like a home and family all to himself! He choses people over playing with dogs....and that is not a bad thing as he behaves in public with no reactivity, just wants to be with people and have all the attention! No cats or small animals (such as birds, guinea pigs, etc...)please! If you are interested in this awesome fella please email us at as we would love to talk to you about this wonderful guy! Subby's adoption fee is **sponsored**! He also will be going to his new home with his crate, toys, food, etc....We will make sure this boy has a smooth transition and lifelong training is provided :) (Less)

My new home should have another dog in it to help with my confidence building.

RPSM recommends children 6 years and older. I will require a standard fenced in yard to keep me safe. If you are interested in adopting me, please go to to fill out an application.

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.

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-07-00068Lance (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 amazing intelligent 8 month old, 50lb, large breed puppy that has survived incredible odds to become what he is today: An active happy boy who is able to walk a mile and enjoys the company of other dogs! :D Lance was found on the streets of San Antonio, TX in April 2017 near a yard filled with junk and debris. He was brought to Animal Control Services partially paralyzed. His first reports indicated that he was in much pain, but was able to move his legs in random motions. He was given a bed, pain meds, and some time to recover from whatever caused his paralysis. Because he was deemed unadoptable :/ he was also listed for ... (Read More)euthanasia. Lance was brought to the attention of Compass Dog Rescue through a FB video (shared earlier and in our photo library), and that is where his story really begins: Through incredible fostering, some generous pledges for his medical needs, a nutritious diet, some physical therapy and the perseverance by one determined dog, Lance is now walking a mile a day and is ready to start his forever home search. In his current foster home Lance has learned to walk on a leash, and he is also crate trained. He rides well in the car and looks forward to going on outings to local doggy friendly places. Lance loves to meet new people and seems to take new environments in stride. Lance is also attending obedience classes and may progress to doggie socialization groups. Lance is still working on housetraining, but that is due is some part to the delay in him having use of his hind quarters.. He likes to be clean and works hard to stay that way. For the most part, he is successful. He knows how to sit, down and is learning 'wait' for his foster mom to lead before going in and out of doors. He is highly trainable and has the drive and stamina for much more given the right environment. He seems to want the company of other dogs, and likes to try to do whatever they do - so an older dog that knows the ropes and can help Lance learn to be a great dog 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 cats. Because of Lance's injury and consideration around that, his ideal home would be child free or have dog savy children 12 and up. His foster family would prefer no electric fencing or tie-outs for Lance - so a physically fenced in yard would also be best. Previous breed experience with a dog from working lines (German Shepherd, Belgian Malinois, Cane Corso) is a plus, as Lance is exceptionally intelligent and will do best in a home with experience with dogs that are driven to do a job well. Lance is an exceptional dog, who deserves an outstanding home that can support him and guide him to continue to be the best dog he can become. They need to understand that he has come so far but should his physical defects not resolve completely - will love him anyway. A village stepped up to rescue Lance and we are looking for a very special adoptive family for him that will be able to help him continue on his amazing journey. We are here to provide all the information that we have to help anyone interested make a good and informed decision. Anyone with interest in this darling miracle of a boy, please inquire today!

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 ...

    Meet Beau! Beau is a gorgeous, young boy. He was left chained in a yard after his owner moved. He was emaciated and had some wounds on his hind end and face. He has gained weight and his wounds are healed!! He's such a loving dog despite what his former humans did to him. He is afraid of new people and needs a family that is willing to work with him to trust people and strangers. . He should go to a home without small children. In his left eye is a what is called a sectoral heterochromia. His eye is half blue and half brown. It doesn't hurt him and it doesn't affect his vision, it just makes him unique.

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. American Bulldogs have fought wild dogs, bulls, and even fire while defending their masters.
