I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Lucas*adoption pending*'s Story...
Hello world, my name is Lucas, and I am about the sweetest thing you could ever meet!
I was surrendered to rescue after living my entire 7 years of life with my owner. He decided to move and didnÂ’t have time for me any longer due to a new job. He dropped me off with the rescue crew, and I was so nervous for a few days. My foster mom thought I was depressed. I didnÂ’t know where I was, there were new things all over, and I was scared. Can you imagine having your whole life changed so quickly??
Well, after a few days of warming up, I am having a blast! My foster mom took me to the vet, and they discovered I had a huge ulcer on my eye and a very infected nose. I got on some good eye drops and a nose moisturizing routine every day and I am feeling so much better!
I am a laid back kind of guy. I am just thrilled to be around people and sleep by their feet. I am not the kind of guy who wants to run and hike, I prefer a slow walk with my owner then a nice, nutritious snack! I do need to lose a few pounds since I am a very big boy!
I love other dogs too! I have no history with cats, but I am sure I would love them too! Older kids 8 and up would be fine with me as long as they are calm and donÂ’t expect me to run and play constantly. A quiet home is best for me.
I just donÂ’t think you could find a sweeter boy than me. ItÂ’s hard for us older dogs to get adopted, everyone seems to want the young ones. They donÂ’t know what they are missing. I promise to love you unconditionally if you promise the same! I am truly manÂ’s best friend!
I have had a lot of upset the last few months, so my foster mom will be selecting the most wonderful home for me who will love me forever! I am neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.

We DO NOT adopt outside of Arizona, and we do not adopt to homes with more than 2 dogs.

Not ready to adopt or foster?! Would you consider making a donation towards the rescue dogÃ‚Â’s care?? Your donation will go towards their food, treats, toys and vet care. They will re-pay you with a personalized e-mail and big wet kiss!*WHY ARE SOME DOGÃ‚Â’S ADOPTION FEES HIGHER THAN OTHERS?
The adoption donation fees are based on age, health and needed vet care of the dogs we have taken in. The younger, healthier dogs help to pay for their cousins that need a little more TLC. You adoption donation fee also covers the cost of the spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchip of your new dog.
*CAN WE COME SEE YOUR DOGS?
All of our dogs are in foster homes around the Phoenix area. We require an application to be filled out, a home check to be done, and vet reference check to be complete before having you come meet the dog of your dreams! We will ONLY contact you when we have a potential match.
*I HAVE SEEN SEVERAL DOGS WHO I THINK WOULD FIT MY HOME, BUT THEY ARE NOW ADOPTED. WHY?
We take a lot of time to get to know our dogs in rescue. Some are barkers, which cannot go into condos or apartments, some require companionship of other dogs, and some are not good with children. Each dog is unique!
*IS THERE A WAITING LIST OF APPROVED APPLICANTS?
YES! That is why even if you are not ready to adopt, get your application into us if you want to be considered for a future adoption.
*I AM LOOKING FOR A PUPPY OR VERY YOUNG BULLDOG.
Well, you have come to the wrong place. Rescue dogs on average are between 3 and 7 years old, we do not get puppies into rescue. We would, however, be able to refer you to a reputable breeder.
*BULLDOGS ARE SO EXPENSIVE! WHY?
If you are looking for a cheap bulldog by choosing rescue, need not apply! Rescue dogs are dogs that are going to need ongoing vet care, and a lot of love and training from their new humans. We only adopt to homes that truly want to RESCUE a homeless bulldog. This is not the place to find a Ã‚Â“cheaperÃ‚Â” bulldog.
*I HAVE AN APPLICATION ON FILE, AND HAVE CALLED A FEW TIMES, WITH NO RESPONSE.
We will contact you when we believe we have a dog that is a match.
Please remember: Not only are bulldogs adorable and cute, they are also high-maintenance and expensive! ☺
