Facts about Boss

  • Breed: English Bulldog
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Boss is a lovely, sweet natured middle aged boy who just wants to be loved and cuddled. He is very laid back and quiet, and is a total gentlemen.
He came to CEBR very underweight and hungry, and is currently on a regime of 3 meals a day with minimal walks, to get his strength and body mass back.
He has suffered permanent damage to his left cornea (possibly due to prior untreated infection/dry eye) and now has a permanently milky film on it. He can still see from this eye, but it is limited. He may need to be on eye meds (neopolydex and optimmune) for the rest of his life.
He is good with car rides, and hops into the passenger footwell, and then jumps up onto the passenger seat. He is quite comfortable lying down in the seat next to you snoozing as you drive, and is very well behaved. He loves sitting in the sun and snoozing, giving high five, and knows some commands like 'sit'. Just an all round, low key sweetie.
Boss is still getting acclimatized to his surroundings and new people and is a bit timid/frightened of any loud noises or raised voices. He follows his humans everywhere around the house and just wants to be near you. He'll sit down on your feet and sit there for hours while you pet him.
Outside on potty breaks he's a little bit stubborn and very slow moving. He must sniff every single tree, signpost and hydrant to mark it, although this might improve once he's neutered, which will be imminently. However, patience is a must on walks as he is one slow mover!
He can do stairs but is tentatively trying these out and is still quite weak in moving around, due to his weight loss.
He is good with other dogs but can be a bit over amorous at first and will need human supervision for a little while. He is submissive and curious with his interactions, with his mind on humping and not aggression.
Since he loves attention and interaction with humans, I think a family with older kids would be perfect for him where he could be the center of attention for the rest of his life! :-)

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.

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.
