Stubbs's Story...
Greetings from Chicago English Bulldog Rescue (CEBR FOR SHORT)! Don’t be fooled by our name, we cover a very large Midwest territory!

Greetings there. My name is Stubbs and I can assure you I’m the most handsome basset/beagle mix you ever did see. Standing tall with my 2 inch legs and my big old “keg” of a belly, I’m proud of my hereditary mix! I am slightly overweight (ahem) and don’t have a neck to speak off right now (it is buried in a few rolls we think), but I’m still a happy chap! I’m 6 years old and looking for a home along with my English Bully friend Peanut. I love her dearly and rely on her so we need to go home together. You see my first family sold me on Craig’s List…I really hate Craig’s list. A nice new family was where I landed for the past year. I played with their children and their other 2 dogs. But an unexpected event caused turmoil in the home and the family needed to send me to a home where I would get more time and attention.

Unfortunately, my last dad, a fireman, injured his back and had to undergo emergency surgery of a very critical kind. With all of the care involved with his recovery, the family knew that I just wasn’t going to get what I deserved, so they called CEBR who picked up me, and my friend Peanut, and we headed home with them!

I am a silly yet gentle boy who always wags his tail. That little white tip at the end makes everyone laugh. I can move pretty fast for a low rider and my waddle is hysterical according to my fans! I don’t do much other than seek love. If you sit on the floor with me I will put my head in your lap and let you love me up and just pet, and pet and pet. While my friend Peanut plays, I sit and watch and seek your attention.

Coming into CEBR’s care, I had a huge distended belly. Well now, it is just huge, but not hard and distended! At first they were worried that I had a stomach tumor or cancer or something. So they took me straight to the vet for a once-over and an X-ray. I’m embarrassed to say that it turned out to be a LOT of gas in there. Peeyewwwww!

CEBR believes it was from the food I was eating…Beneful, which is “full” of fillers and not such great ingredients. So they switched me to a high quality holistic food which I’m hoping will help me lose a few pounds while eliminating all of that extra gas. Send good thoughts to my foster mom who has to sit with me as this gas makes it way out of my system! Hahahaha! Other than that, I am in great health! My vaccines are updated, I am heartworm free and microchipped too!

As I mentioned, I can’t be separated from Peanut. At times she doesn’t seem to notice I’m around, but she is my comfort. And boy are we a silly pair. With my short legs and stout and full belly, and her squishy bully face, we make everyone’s day!

Good day to you!


Peanut and Stubbs will be adopted together for an adoption fee of $700. Our adoption criteria for them are as follows:

  • CEBR Adoption Radius Only. NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • A family that will spend the extra money on a high quality diet.
  • Someone that will watch Stubb’s weight to be sure he is healthy and happy!
  • A family that will clean big Stubb’s ears often!

We are a pure-bred English Bulldog rescue located in the state of Illinois but serving the Midwest. To determine if you qualify to adopt one of our adorable bullies view our Adoption Criteria and Adoption Area Map.

We serve Chicago-proper and the surrounding suburbs, Illinois, Northwest Indiana, Southeastern Wisconsin including Milwaukee and now will accept intakes from Ohio and Missouri.

CEBR’s Directors and core volunteers are members of the Bulldog Club of America and the Bulldog Club of America Rescue Network. What that means for adopters, surrendering families and shelters is that 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.

We are an Illinois licensed shelter and a 501c3 charitable organization. The care we provide our English bulldogs includes a high quality diet, the best veterinary care around (from a bulldog specialist!), and behavioral evaluations of the highest quality. Each of our rescued bullies typically costs CEBR more in care than the adoption fees we collect – on average $536 per bully. Your contributions to help care for our bullies would be so appreciated. CLICK HERE TO DONATE. All donations are tax deductible as provided by law.

Because we receive so many inquiries about our dogs, we’re sorry to say that we can’t follow up on all of them. If you are interested in one of our bullies, please complete an application by visiting and click on Apply To Adopt. We will not be able to respond to individual phone calls or emails.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Stubbs, a Park Ridge Basset Hound/Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound/Beagle for sale in Park Ridge, or seeking a Basset Hound/Beagle 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 Basset Hound/Beagle breeders who help with Basset Hound/Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Park Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
