Richard's Story...
Greetings from Chicago English Bulldog Rescue (CEBR FOR SHORT). We are the ONLY 501c3 English Bully rescue in Illinois! Don’t be fooled by our name, we cover a large Midwest territory.

Hey. What’s up? I'm Richard. Yeah, I know. I’m hunky. That’s what they all say. Actually all 7 or more of my last families said that too. Yep. You got that right. I stopped counting at 7. And I’m just 3 years old. I’m not sure how my life got so wacky so fast, but you know, I think things are looking up for me. I came to CEBR from a shelter a few hours away. They had tried to place me a few times and I kept coming back. Before I went to the shelter I also lived in a few other homes too. They say that I can be bossy. But CEBR knows their bullies so they have me with an experienced foster family who is watching me every second and so far, so good!

I am potty trained and know the value of a treat! I will sit and will come when you call me (just don’t call me “Dick”…I don’t like that!) I get a little fussy in my crate and will whine and bark if I know you are home while I’m in there. But I realize that you are the boss so I will eventually settle down. Each day that I’m here I am slowly getting the idea and today was better then yesterday.

I am a GREAT leash walker and really like my walks. I go at a nice clip and don’t pull much. I walked with my foster bully sister today and we had a great workout! So far I am getting along with the other dogs here in the house…in small doses. It is only good routine to introduce all dogs slowly. I have been outside in the yard, out on walks, and just hanging around the kitchen with one or two at a time. Only one “situation” and it wasn’t my fault, I swear! The other dog was egging me on. I as minding my own business.

I’m in pretty good shape medically. I have a bit of a respiratory infection but I’m on meds for that. My ears and wrinkles are pretty raw but my foster mom knows what she’s doing and that will be gone in a jiffy. I didn’t trust her at first when she tried to clean me up. But she goes gently and lets me know I am a good boy and I realize it actually feels good when all is said and done.

I will write more later. I’m going to sniff around the yard a bit. It’s nice out!

Later Skaters!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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