I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Doug*adoption pending*'s Story...
Hello there! My name is Doug and I am a huge, squishy marshmallow bug of love! I'm 6 years old and oh so handsome. I'm a big boy (80 pounds! Holy cow!) I will be on a diet while in rescue. I'm red brindle and white with black eyes. I love, love, love my squeaky toys (no stuffing please!), comfy dog beds and belly rubs. I'm good with other dogs, but I'm not so fond of cats. Since I'm so big I can only be placed with kids over 8 years old. That's not because I'm mean, it's just because I'm so big I may knock over smaller kids.
I came into rescue because my family fell on very hard times. They tried their very best to take care of me for as long as they could, but they finally reached the point where they knew it would be best if I found a new home. It was sad at first but I'm a super happy boy and I'm just looking for the best family in the whole world to adopt me and keep me forever. The family that gets to adopt me will be so super lucky!
I am perfectly housetrained, awesome with other dogs and seem interested in kitties. A doggie friend for me would be great! I am VERY quiet and calm. What can I say? I like to chill out!
I'm an incredibly sweet boy and I will roll over and let you pet my belly until your arm gets tired :) I'm a perfect angel in the car and I love my walks! Whenever someone talks to me I wiggle my cute little tail like crazy :) I hardly ever make a sound, I mostly just hang out with my toys.
Are you willing to be my forever home?

You MUST fill out an application if you want to be considered for my home. NO inquiries will be returned without an application on file. 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 dog’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 DOG’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 “cheaper” 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! ☺
