Meatball's Story...
Hi, my name is Meatball and I'm a five-year old bundle of love! Although my name makes me sound like a real tough guy, my foster mom says I am one of the sweetest, gentlest boys she has ever met. She also says it's appropriate that I was named after an entree, since one of my favorite things to do is eat! (I'm notorious for raiding the food pantry in search of snacks when nobody's looking).

Although I'm in good shape, I'm not much of a walker - in fact, I'm not crazy about hanging around outdoors for very long. But I do love couches and soft, fluffy dog beds, and anywhere I can cuddle up and take a well-deserved nap. I am potty trained and very well-behaved. Although I like to rummage through the occasional trash can looking for munchies, I am generally very respectful of property and go straight to my elk antler when I've got the itching to chew.

My foster mom says that I'm a total charmer, and that I know how to wrap unsuspecting humans around my paw. I love to stand on a human's lap and rest my head on their shoulder (foster mom calls it "perching"). And then I lean in for the kiss!

I have already had one ear surgery and I'm getting ready for my second (and last). My hearing has suffered a little as a result, and although I respond and come when called, humans may have to be patient and even repeat themselves a time or two before I realize they're talking to me!

My foster mom thinks I would probably do best as an only dog, but I am great with kids and adults (I LOVE humans)! I am looking for a love match that likes long naps, cuddling on the couch, eating, and smooching. Could that be you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Meatball, 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.
