I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Hi everyone! My name is Bentley, and as you can see, I am a super gorgeous bully boy! I am just approaching my 9 month birthday, but don’t let that fool you! I am a big ol baby, tipping the scales at close to 50 lbs already. I probably won’t get much bigger, but I could stand to put on about 5 lbs. You see, I have had a ‘ruff’ life so far. I was left at a vet clinic by my owners after they could not afford a surgery that I needed. The surgery was needed to remove a rope toy and some plastic pieces from my belly. (Yep, I ate stuff I wasn’t supposed to!) The vet clinic called Love-A-Bull and here I am! Up for adoption and waiting for the perfect family to come along.
I am just barely 9 months, but OH so mellow! I enjoy long tummy rubs and relaxing with you by the tv. I am going to require a home that has another dog for me to play with! (A spayed female would be ideal!) I LOVE other dogs. Older human kiddos are great by me also. Cats? Not a problem! I am such a cool dude and I get along great with everyone in my foster home.
My foster mom has reported that I have went #2 in the house a time or two... Yikes! I am still a baby and going to need reminders. I have never went #1 in the house, just with all the excitement and partying that I have been doing, I forget sometimes! (HaHa) That's just part of being a baby! I am healthy as can be and ready to begin the rest of my life. Remember, I am a 10 PLUS year commitment and rescue is going to be very selective of the home I go to. Are you the perfect family for me?!

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! ☺
