Petey's Info...

Petey's Story...
Petey is a very friendly, sweet, playful and lovable three-year-old, 64-pound, male, black and white Boxer/American Bulldog-mix with warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian.

Petey is great with people of all ages – including small children. He’s relaxed and not at all hyper or jumpy. He’s wonderful in the home and leans against you lovingly. He is a homebody who loves being with his people. He loves a fenced-in yard, enjoys playing with his toys and is perfectly housebroken.

Petey is extremely responsive to his people. He is well-trained and knows the commands sit and stay. His favorite treats are bananas and apples; his foster family likes to keep him healthy and he is very food-motivated.

Currently being fostered in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood, Petey is just not a city guy. He is reactive on leash and nervous in the city. He’d rather have a yard of his own to run and play in and a more suburban neighborhood without all the noise and congestion. So he is looking for a home that definitely has a secure fenced-in yard.

He is currently living in a foster home with another large dog. He is best with male dogs – especially labs and bully breeds who don’t mind his rough manner of play. Petey has a strong prey drive so he’s best in a home without cats, rabbits or other small pets.

Petey is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, heartworm-tested and micro-chipped. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Animal Care and Control.

To meet and possibly adopt Petey, please contact Kat at kat@fcacc.org or if you have questions for his current foster mom, please contact Ania at pniewska.ania@gmail.com or 312-730-6687.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Petey, a Chicago American Bulldog/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Bulldog/Boxer for sale in Chicago, or seeking a American Bulldog/Boxer dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Bulldog/Boxer breeders who help with American Bulldog/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
