Bubba's Story...
Bubba---profile—An Oldie But Goodie!
You know the movie about grumpy old men called Grumpy Old Men? Well, if you made a movie about dogs instead of men and the dogs were sweet instead of grumpy, I would get the starring role! My name is Bubba and I am the sweetest old English Bulldog you will ever meet. I’m 10 years old. My owners surrendered me to animal control and I wasn’t in good shape. I had lots wrong with me and felt really old. Thanks to CEBR, I am a healthy, puppy-like old guy now. It’s like I get to see life after all this time from a new perspective being in a home that gives me proper care! Do not get me wrong, I still have some issues that most old bulldogs have. I walk with a slight limp because I have arthritis in my front legs and I need ointment for dry eye. Other than that, the vet says I’m in great shape for a 10 year old. My foster parents have found that I am even sweet when having to get me eye ointment, fold and tail pocket cleanings and ear cleanings. I actually love it. It’s like a day at the spa! People can pamper this old man (ok…dog) all they want.

That’s actually what I am looking for in life. A home where I can be pampered and spoiled, get the proper care and cleanings, and give and receive lots of love. I love walks (yep…I’m a trooper even with this arthritis), car rides, kisses, treats and most of all watching tv on the couch with my human companions. I get along with other dogs, but stick up for myself when my foster sister is a brat to me. I even try and play with her! My favorite thing ever though is food. If you’d like to see this old man (ok…dog) bounce, just fill my bowl up with food. I do a little dance at every meal! I am crate trained and potty trained. I wasn’t neutered until I came into rescue, so sometimes when I am in a new setting I mark. Old habits die hard! My foster parents only had issues with me marking in the house the first week (they made me wear a belly band….sigh). Now that I’m used to my new environment and my hormones are leveled off from the neuter, I don’t pee on anything in the house. Yay!!!

What do you say? Are you looking for a wise, sweet, youthful old man (ok….dog)? I could be the Jack Lemmon to your Walter Matthau! Let’s live out the best days of my life together!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bubba, 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.
