Rocky *Adoption Pending*'s Story...
Well Hello, you don’t have to drool! I know I’m a good looking boy. My name is Rocky, and you are checking out my profile so I guess I can tell you a little bit about myself. I am 7 years young and strong in stature and personality. I am a lover not a fighter, but I sure am ripped like one. I weigh in at a perfect 47 pounds. I have been a little bit under the weather lately, but don’t you worry about that. As soon as I am full strength I will be getting neutered, but I am already housetrained so don’t even worry about that. I am up to date on all my shots, heartworm free, and will come with a microchip.

I was swept out of my home pretty quickly, but Im a strong boy, and nothing is going to keep me from loving my new family. I am currently with my foster parents after being at my first home for 7 years. My dad went to prison and my mom decided she wanted to keep my sister, so she dropped me off at a shelter. I never got much medical attention, but CEBR took me in and I couldn’t be happier to be getting the love and care that I deserve.

My foster mom could not be more in love with me. She says that my coloring is perfect and that I am a real “stud”. She gives me a whole lot of attention, and I love it! I really like snuggling up on the couch with my foster parents, but I can also appreciate some time to myself to snuggle up in my favorite blanket. When I came to my foster home, I had really bad dry eye, and there was gook all over them. My foster mom gives me drops and gel twice a day, and now the whole world can see my beautiful brown eyes.
My foster dad takes me on lots of walks and so far I have only had one accident in the house. They are really proud of me. He says that I walk with a “swagger”, and its true, I have a little bit of a waddle from stiff joints in my front legs. I don’t like to walk far, but I get around just fine. I can even make it up the 22 stairs to get into my foster home! But, I try to limit that to once a day. I figure I’m light, so why not make them carry me once in a while. Oh, and you know what really makes me want to do just about anything. Food! Show me a treat and I am yours!

When I first came to CEBR, the people at the shelter said that I “charged at another dog”. That might have had something to do with the fact that I was sick, had fleas, and was out of my house for the first time in 7 years. I have been nothing but nice to other dogs and people since I have been with my foster parents. I really don’t like getting eye drops put in, but who does! Sometimes I wiggle and squirm, but Im a bulldog and that’s what we do. My foster family calls me the boss, because I love being the main attraction. I’ll give you really sad eyes if you tell me to go lie down, but I’ll do it. I’m just a ham. Other than that, my foster parents think I am really well behaved, and I would have to agree.

I am really looking forward to finding my forever home to relax in! My perfect home would include a family that had a lot of time to spend with me. I need my eye drops and gel twice a day and someone to give me my joint supplement! I really don’t like the stairs too much, but a couple of them is not a deal breaker. My perfect home would have its own yard so I can be my own boss, but I am fine on a leash too. All I really need is a lot of attention. I would prefer to not have kids around because I am getting a bit older and just want to relax.
Well, I have to be going, its time for a belly rub. I will be strutting around my foster home like a boss, dreaming of relaxing with you in my forever home. See you when I see you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky *Adoption Pending*, 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.
