Hi! It's Phineas here - or as my foster dad likes to call me Otter because I like to stand on my hind legs and well, I look like an otter. I'm living the life now after being rescued from living chained up outside with no food or water. Heck, I even have two foster fur brothers now (one is IEBR alum Duke), and a foster fur sister who I'm told doesn't like a lot of dogs but we are doing swell! (Probably because I'm so awesome).

Ok let's get to me! I just turned 7 in August but my foster mom says I'm energetic and one of the sweetest dogs she has ever met. I have gotten along with everyone that I have met and want them to give me a bully butt rub upon meeting them. I do have a bit of dry eye that will require special eye medicine twice a day but I get it put in no problem! I'm also on some special medicine right now for my ears since they hadn't been taken care of for a very long time. I also tend to gulp my food down (hey I've been hungry for a long time), so I would do better with a few small meals during the day and a slow feeder bowl. Please consider letting me be part of your family you won't regret it!

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.
