George's Story...
George is an American Bulldog or Bulldog mix. Although he's in our 'big dog' section, he's not actually very big (especially now, while he is still underweight) but like all American Bulldogs, he is strong and athletic, which gives him lots of horsepower should he choose to use it. In the short time ACR has known him, he hasn't chosen to exert any muscle, aside from his tongue muscles for kisses, and his butt muscles for wagging that cute little nub. He must think he's a lap dog, because when we rescued him from the pound and transported him to the vets office, he tried to sit in his driver's lap all the way. His little butt and nubb wag a mile a minute and if you slow down on the petting he talks to you with a low deep whine, saying " Yoohoo! Over here! Love on me! Scratch me! Pay nonstop attention to me!" During his first vet visit, he cuddled up to the vet tech and put his head in her lap when she knelt down to pet him. He looked up at her with his big droopy eyes, and she was toast!

We don't have a foster home open for George yet, so he is boarding at the vets. He's a very nice customer who ignores the other dogs, even when they are excited and barking. He also keeps his kennel clean, and waits until he's let out to potty. As soon as a foster home opens we'll know more about life with George as a housedog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

George, a Athens American Bulldog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Bulldog for sale in Athens, or seeking a American Bulldog dog from a breeder in Athens.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Athens 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 Athens 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 American Bulldog breeders who help with American Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Athens paves the way for another one to be saved.
