This handsome fella was found as a stray with an untreated skin infection. Fortunately, he was sent to a pet hospital that helped to nurture him back to health and they contacted CEBR with hope of getting him placed in a loving home. He has since started medicated baths and is on antibiotics and doing great! He is such a happy and affectionate boy and his little stub never stops wagging. He does well with other dogs and he's around 6 years old. He just loves belly rubs and wants to play, play play!
Chowder loves to ride in the car and go for walks, but snuggling is definitely his favorite pastime. He is a lap dog – sure to keep you warm as the cooler fall weather approaches. Chowder does not have any chronic medical issues to be managed, and general health is excellent. He is sure to kiss his way into your heart in no time!

About Chicago English Bulldog Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are the gold standard, the oldest, most experienced, top-notch pure-breed English Bulldog rescue in the Midwest. Our bullies get the highest level of care and commitment. They spend their time with us in foster homes where they get daily love and attention. No cages, no institutions.

We are an Illinois licensed shelter and a 501c3 charitable organization. The care we provide our English bulldogs, including a high quality diet, the best veterinary care from a bulldog specialist, and behavioral evaluations, exceeds any rescue organization around. Your contributions to help care for our bullies would be so appreciated as each rescue typically costs us more in care than the adoption fees we collect. All donations are tax deductible as provided by law. To donate, visit our secure online donation site:

Our Adoption Process...

1. If you would like to know if you are in our adoption area, please View our Adoption Area Map.

We know there are so many wonderful homes out there in other states and other parts of Illinois that we simply can't get to.

2. We will only consider a home with an application on file. So, if you don't have your application on file with us, please fill one out. To fill out our application, please visit:

3. Each application is thoroughly reviewed and will either pass through to a phone interview, or will not move forward. We will contact you if we feel you make the cut. We also require an in-home interview and will advise if you have made it through to that round.

4. Each bulldog will come with an adoption fee that varies from around $575 and up depending on the age and health of the dog. In addition, we require a contract that indicates that if for any reason, you can no longer keep your rescued bulldog, you will contact us directly for rehoming.
