Rescue Me ID: 17-06-23-00344Ernie (male)

Bulldog Mix   

    EXTREMELY URGENT will be KILLED VERY SOON unless a foster or adopter steps forward. Poor little smooshy face Ernie needs someone to save his life before its too late. He was so excited to get out of his kennel and hangout with us. He's such a goof ball, he would take the treats and then spit them out! He jumped into my lap for some cuddling and he let me pet him all over. Please come meet this hunk today! Please don't hesitate and let this sweet boy be killed here. The shelter is FULL and dogs are being killed. Fostering is free of charge and everything is provided within a 90 mile radius of Chicago. Volunteers are willing to help ... (Read More)with transport.

Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *DOUGIE HAS BEEN IN BOARDING FOR MONTHS AND NEEDS A FOSTER OR ADOPTER* Currently in Chicago. Honest to God, I've rarely met a dog with this much personality. Not once but twice, he literally took almost a running start and did a somersault in the grass. %BD%BD%BD%BD I think I smiled the entire time we were together. Doug (aka Dougie Fresh which just makes it waaay better) admittedly has a lot of energy initially, but this sweetest guy calmed down remarkably once we started on our walk, and almost every time I reached down to pet him, he'd either press into me or throw himself on the ground for some belly lovins lol. He responded SO ... (Read More)well to praise and food that it's hard to believe he'd be difficult to train at all. We went on a nice adventure around the city but I honestly believe he would have been just as happy totally soaking up all the attention and love he could get. He's a SUPER affectionate little man who's been waiting for his day for way too long. Just a baby at 1.5-2 years old and does great with other dogs. (Less)

Bulldog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Sweet Thuggy is still looking for his perfect forever home. This adorable 5 year old boy needs to be an only pet, but he has so much love to give, that you'd never miss out on any kisses or cuddles. Thuggy wants nothing more than someone to love him, a good belly scratch, someone to toss him a tennis ball, and a warm bed to sleep in at night and cuddle up to his favorite person. I can't believe that this sweetheart is still looking for a home of his own. He's an adorable goofball with a great personality and he'll entertain you to no end! He's house trained, crate trained, a smart boy, and a quick learner. He knows his basic commands and ... (Read More)will do just about anything for a treat! He loves to bathe in the sun, and will find any sliver of sunshine that he can to lay in. He's a pretty laid back guy that is content just crawling in your lap and falling asleep on his back. He was raised in a home with small children all of his life and he adores all people, big and small. He's a joy to be around and anyone would be lucky to have him in their family. His neuter, rabies and distemper vaccines, and heartworm test will be up to date, and those are the only fees I'm asking of his new family. Please share Thuggy! Even if you are not in a position to adopt, you never know who might be looking to add an adorable little man to their family! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Bulldog in Illinois
    Bulldogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The English Bulldog is a stocky breed with an intimidating appearance, but is one of the gentlest types of dogs. However, the Bulldog does have excellent guarding instincts. Bulldogs love human attention. Some bulldogs have a dominant streak and need a master who is firm and exudes leadership. Bulldogs do well with children and make great family pets. Bulldogs can live in an apartment but need a daily walk. Energy levels of Bulldogs vary widely but the breed is relatively inactive indoors. Bulldogs are prone to health problems and tend to slobber profusely.

lnteresting Bulldog Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    A Bulldog named Uga is the beloved mascot of the University of Georgia. The term Bulldog originated in medieval times and was applied to brave dogs that would attack bulls in arena combat. Bulldog puppies often have to be delivered by C-section due to the breadth of their heads. Bulldogs have such jowly facial folds that they need to have their teeth brushed and their facial folds cleaned out on a daily basis.
