Facts about Penelope

  • Breed: English Bulldog
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Hi there! My name is Penelope, an ex-puppy mill mama, ex-rescue, but my family had to give me up because no one was home with me all day. So I am looking for a forever home where someone will be home more often than not. I am between 7 and 8 years old, spayed, up to date on all my shots, with no outstanding medical issues.
I am a very sweet natured girl with a little feisty side at times. I will follow you around the house, love my tushie scratched, and will beg for people food (my former owners spoiled me). I will go to the door when it’s time to do my business, and I sleep very nicely in my bed at night. I love to be outside, so I would love to be with a family that has a nice big fenced yard. I’m good on a leash so I hope you will also take me for walks, and I have no problem with stairs. I am good with other dogs as long as they don’t get too playful with me (I will bark at my foster brother if he bothers me). I am also very good with children.
So if you’re looking for a low key, sweet, mellow bully, I am your girl!

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.
