Hi everyone! My name is Frankie and I’m a 5 year old English Bulldog. Although no one can say for sure because I was rescued from a puppymill – you know, the kind of place that supplies pet stores with their cute window display puppies? At the mill I spent my days in a cage only to have litter after litter of puppies. I have bad cysts on my back paw and a skin condition that has caused my hair to fall out in places. But I’m on medicine now and hope to be right as rain in no time! I have not been spayed yet but you can bet I will be before I go to my new home. I’m done having all those puppies! I am heartworm free and working on getting up to date and healthy!

Coming into a real home out of a puppy mill has been a challenge for me but I am working really hard at being a normal, happy bully! I still have some issues I need to work on; I don’t really like to be in my crate anymore, I’ve had a taste of freedom and it’s for me! I tend to cry and bark in my crate. On the other hand I love to go outside. There are so many new things to explore! I am very good walking on my leash, but they keep talking about housebreaking and having to do my business outside but I don’t get it! I like grass but I’m not sure of the concept of going “potty” on it. I think I am going to need a lot of help with that one.

I also have a bully foster brother I am living with and I have to tell you, boy do I love him! We play out in the yard, go for walks and nap together. I also have some foster cats that live here too. I am pretty much ignoring them for now, never having seen them before. I don’t chase them. I’m too smart for that! I love to eat my dinner and I have discovered treats are my favorite things next to petting and cuddling with my foster parents.

I am a sweet, gentle girl who just likes hanging around and being loved as a bulldog should be! Kids would be ok, as long as they are older, like over 6.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Frankie, 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.
