Hi everyone! My name is Winston, and I am a bully bachelor looking for a home to call my own.
I was surrendered to rescue because my owners fell upon some hard times and health issues. Rescue promised to find me a wonderful home!
First of all, I am a big ol’ bulldog! I am cuddly, goofy, slobbery and I promise to make a lake out of your floor if a towel isn’t down near my drinking bowl! I am what you think of when you think ‘english bulldog!’
I am 1.5 years old, just a baby! A BIG baby! I tip the scales, but will be on a diet now since my foster family feels it’s best for my health.
I absolutely love other dogs. I will need to be placed with a spayed female dog (or 2) or no dogs at all. Too many male dogs in the house can sometimes lead to trouble!
I have never met a stranger! When I am in public, everyone crowds around me because of my fabulous looks and gleaming personality. I really can’t blame them. (haha)
I am a super duper healthy guy, besides the fact that I need to be on a strict diet. I also have some fur missing on my sides, but once I am on a premium food, that will change. My previous owners were not feeding me the best of foods. A great way to help me lose weight is to feed me ¾ cup of my kibble, and ¼ cup of green beans or fat free cottage cheese. It’s yummy!
I am ready for an adoption, but please remember, I am going to need a lot of attention, love and you have to be prepared for a true bulldog! Yep, that means I will give you drooly kisses, you may have to wipe my bum on occasion, and I need to be kept cool in the upcoming hot weather. I am crate trained too!
I would do well with kids 5 and up, female dogs are okay, and I have no history with cats. My foster mom has 2 cats and I haven’t shown much interest in them yet, so we will see.
Are you the right home for me!?!
*****My adoption donation to rescue is $575
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! ☺
