Hercules here. I found myself in need of a new home because my mom is moving out of the country. I will have you know that my personality fits my name. I am 8 years young and I am the best bulldog if you just ask me. I share my treats and my toys with my sisters, most of the time. I always get first pick though. I've been with a couple of families so far. They all loved me and have had to find me new homes on no fault of mine. I love to suck on my stuffed animals. I get with other dogs just fine. We all go to the dog park and I play and play. I love humans of all sizes. I don't bite but do nip sometimes when I don't like what you are doing. Especially if I find your shoe and you try to take it away from me. I like shoes. I sometimes try to take them, so foster mom says you should keep your shoes in the closet with the door closed. I have been known to take clothes too if they happen to land on the floor. Heck, I want everything to be mine.

I do not like vacuums, hair dryers or shovels they scare me. I have my quirks but my foster mom says I am a good boy despite them. I am potty trained and I love car rides and the park. I like kids too but I am a bit too rough to be in a forever home with them. I would need my family to monitor my time with children because I am a bulldog afterall.

I listen most of the time except when I take something I shouldn't. I do it just to get treats so foster mom can take it away. I’m really smart, you see? I like to snuggle and sleep so close to my foster mom at night I almost push her out of the bed. I am awesome on the leash and love to go for (short) walks. I will bark at you for rubs, hee hee..oh and if the doorbell rings.

Are you my forever home?

Love Herc

About IL English Bulldog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

IEBR was formed in 2009 to find homes for purebred English Bulldogs. IEBR rescues dogs from shelters and puppymills and accepts dogs from owners who for any reason can no longer provide a home for their bully.

The bulldogs that come through our rescue program are seldom in “perfect” condition in terms of health, temperament or both; however with a little love, medical attention and time, rescued English Bulldogs dogs make great companions.

IEBR does not find dogs for people – our mission is to find great people for wonderful dogs.
