I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and not good with dogs.
Hello everyone! My name is Rocko and I am a sweet bully boy looking for my forever home. I came to IEBR from a local animal control so not much is known about my past. This includes my age, but the vet told me that I am probably around 3 years old. I was really skinny when I got to animal control so I probably didn't get enough to eat. I have put on a few pounds since then and I weigh 48 pounds. I should probably put on a few more pounds so it's a good thing that eating is one of my favorite things in the world! The vet told me that I am very healthy otherwise. Foster mom tells me that I am pretty low maintenance for a bulldog. I do have these spots on my elbows called pressure points so it looks like I spent too much time laying on hard surfaces in my past life. Foster mom thinks because I was so skinny and have these pressure points that I had a rough start to my life. She tells me that part of my life is over. I love people. I could live with children, but I sometimes get in trouble for trying to take food out of my foster families hand so I would do best with older children. I will need to be an only dog because I just don't quite trust my foster fur siblings. I would be fine in a home with cats though. I like to go for walks and I am very polite on a leash. I am housebroken and will let you know when I have to potty. I have had a few accidents in the house, but foster mom tells me they were her fault for ignoring me when I tried telling her that I needed to potty. I would like to mention my love of eating again. The only time that I jump and get really excited is at meal time. I do use a slow feeder because I eat my food way too fast. Foster mom is also teaching me to sit and calm myself before I eat so I am getting better at eating. My ideal home would have a comfy couch and someone willing to let me lay my head in their lap to take a nap. I am a sweet boy just looking for a family of my own.

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.
Humane America Animal Foundation, dba Adopt-a-Pet.com, is a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) adoption advertising charity. Our mission (and passion) is to help
get homeless pets out of the shelters and into loving homes. Let us know what you think! Suggestion & Comment Box
