Bella's Story...
My name is Bella. I am 5 years old. I love spending time with my foster parents. I love to play with them and go on walks. Every morning when I greet my foster parents I have a toy in my mouth as I’m ready to play with them. I make all those fun bulldog noises especially during playtime! I sit nicely and give my paw for treats & for feedings. I walk on a leash well…in fact during walks I will walk on your right side and look up to you for direction/guidance. My foster parents say I’m a good girl because I do not jump, I do not chew on furniture, shoes, or get into anything laying around the house. I only chew on my toys. I also behave well when my foster parents are sleeping at night and while they work. While I don’t cuddle much with my foster parents I do give them kisses on their face to tell them I love them. . who wouldn’t want a kiss from this girl?
I am potty trained but once in a great while I may have an accident. Have I mentioned I love to play, play and play. I bring my foster parents toys and put them in their laps so they play with me. If they don’t want to play I remind them by giving them a nudge….Why would anyone not want to play with my adorable self…I mean who could resist me!? The next thing I love is going on walks-I love exploring the neighborhood. I meet a lot of people on my walks and others dogs too. I get on well with the other dogs but if they get in my face too much I may get a little grumpy. I do okay with stairs however if I do too many at one time I may get tired! My foster parents have a big backyard to explore which I love and am getting used too, as I lived in an apartment/condo before. With my previous owners I never used a crate however I am beginning to sleep in the crate my foster family gave me with the door open-it makes me feel safe and it is so comfy.
I love my foster family so much I want to protect them so I let out a bark if the doorbell rings or see someone that I don’t know walking by. When someone comes into the house I will let out a bark, go over to the new guest and sniff them…then about 2 minutes later I bring the houseguest a toy and demand they play with me!!! Because I am a bit protective of my foster family they think it is best if I am in a home with no other dogs or cats. Because I have so much energy when I play with my toys, my foster parents think a home with no children or an older child would be okay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bella, a Park Ridge English Bulldog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English Bulldog for sale in Park Ridge, or seeking a English Bulldog dog from a breeder in Park Ridge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Park Ridge 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 Park Ridge 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 English Bulldog breeders who help with English Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Park Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
