I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Hi everyone! My name is Adele and I am a big, beautiful bully!
I am approx 5 years young, although no one knows my true age or name. You see, I was a stray. Yep, a stray! Can you believe it? I was picked up by the Humane Society and I waited and waited for my owner to come pick me up day after day, and no one came. How could my owners not come for me? My foster mom wonders how I even made it, seeing that it is so hot outside.
Although my heart is broken, I am happy that I am in rescue. I am going to be getting my cherry eye all fixed up, and my entropion surgery done. Cherry eye is a third eyelid that pops up on my eye and needs to be removed. Entropion is a common bully condition where the eyelids roll in due to my big ol’ wrinkles and it starts to rub on my eye. So being in a rescue means I am going to be feeling like a new woman very soon!
I am otherwise in good health. I have a beautiful shiny coat and the best personality you have ever seen! I may require some daily eye moisturizing drops for the rest of my life, but that is very reasonable and only takes a few minutes a day.
I LOVE everyone! I have never met a stranger. I would do well with a neutered male dog and older kids are fine by me also.
I am going to need to be on a diet and exercise program. BOO! No fun, but I need to lose a few lbs for my health. Just think, I will look even MORE beautiful! Who knew that was even possible?!
My little tail never stops wiggling and I am a just a big bully of love. I am on the search for a home to call my own, and humans that promise to love me forever. Is that you??
My adoption donation to rescue is $425 to help cover the cost of my eye surgery and spay.
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! ☺
