Rudy's Story...

5 Year old Rudy originally came from an abusive home but was taken in by a caring older couple who nursed him to become the loving and more balanced dog he is now. Unfortunately, the husband passed away and the wife has to work so Rudy was not getting the attention he needs and deserves. Rudy is 64 lbs (currently on a diet to bring this down). He is up-to-date on his vaccinations, neutered, and has been microchipped.

Rudy is good with other dogs, kids, probably cats (just hasn’t been around them much), baths---in fact there isn’t much he doesn’t love. Rudy is quite mellow, likes to sleep a lot, and has been been a well-mannered dog. He likes to snuggle so be prepared for a 64 lb. lapdog. Medically, Rudy has developed some eye problems and an inverted tail which are both not terribly bad but need to be diligently attended daily. We think once his weight is down he will better negotiate stairs and also be able to breath with a little less obstruction (like most bullies he is a bit of a snorer).

Rudy has shown some food sensitivity in the past. He is on a lamb/rice food and does well with this, so it should be no problem.

Rudy is very good in a crate and can be left for reasonable periods of time, but he would prefer to be around people as much as possible. He likes to walk, is good on a leash, and will sleep soundly after a little exercise. Except for his minor medical issues, Rudy should make an easy transition into just about any situation.


Rudy’s adoption fee is $550. Our adoption criteria for Rudy are as follows:

--Chicago and surrounding suburbs only. NO EXCEPTIONS.

--Willing to keep up with cleaning his eyes and tail

--Should continue to bring his weight down to a more healthy level

--Prepared to give some snuggle time

Because we receive so many inquiries about our dogs, we’re sorry to say that we can’t follow up on all them. If you are interested in adopting any of our bullies, please complete an application by visiting and click on Apply To Adopt.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rudy, 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.
