The dog’s agenda is simple, fathomable, overt: I want.
“I want to go out, come in, eat something, lie here, play with that, kiss you. There are no ulterior motives with a dog, no mind games, no second-guessing, no complicated negotiations or bargains, and no guilt trips or grudges if a request is denied.” - Caroline Knapp.
Well, uhhhh…. this is awkward…hi. I’m Malcolm, my friends call me “Moo”. I’ve found myself needing to find a forever home. I’m a good guy – my foster mom said the quote above might as well have been written about me. I’m pretty simple to figure out – and I’d make a pretty awesome roommate.
I really like having a routine and I adapt quickly. It only took me a few days to figure out what the routine is here at my foster home – and now I do as I'm asked, with no fussing (and most of the time, I do what I’m supposed to before my foster mom asks me to). I’ll try to make things easy for you too when it comes to learning my routine. After I go outside to do my business- I let you know I’m finished by barking to come back in. Hygiene is really important to me. I let my foster mom clean my wrinkles and check my ears daily. I’m very trust worthy, I haven’t had any accidents in the house and I don’t pick up things that don’t belong to me. I’m told I’m predictable in a good way.
I’m a proud member of the clean bowl club. In order to get the last bit of kibble, I like to knock over the bowl with my paws and eat off the floor. I always make sure to get every little kibble off of the floor though…so I’m not messy or anything. Oh, and I really like walks- I won’t pull you and I’ll walk at your pace. Like a good bully, I’ll walk beside you.
I love playing with other dogs- bully tag is my favorite! I have two foster sisters who are helping me learn how to be a gentleman and take a hint- I’m not too far off, just a little unsure of myself. I’m not really the alpha type, so I take direction well.
And hey, what’s this stuff about sitting? I come when I’m called, I go to my crate when asked, and I understand "quiet" and "leave it", and my foster mom taught me "kitchen" when she wants me to stop what I'm doing and head to my favorite bed in the kitchen – but I’m still learning about sitting. Not sure what all of the fuss is about, but I am learning that whoever sits gets rewarded. That - I understand!
I can't wait to find my forever home! I could live just about anywhere- a house or an apartment, doesn’t matter. I can easily adapt to live in the city or in the suburbs or even somewhere more remote.
Don’t laugh – I’m a formerly bullied bully. I think that probably negatively affected my social skills, but I am working on it! I wouldn’t mind being in a house with other dogs though! My foster mom says I’m learning social skills quickly by imitating my foster sisters. I’m a little awkward still, so if I get a furry housemate – they’ll have to be patient with me.
I love everyone, but uhhhh…. I am a little biased toward guys and would prefer to have one around the house. And well….ladies, if there’s a guy in the room when you’re talking to me…I am more inclined to look to him for direction before I give in and listen to you. I’ll do what you ask, I just hesitate a little first – ya know?
My foster mom wants you to know that I’ve had all my shots and I’m neutered and the vet says I'm a healthy guy. Except well, I need to continue eating a grain free diet.
My adoption fee is $550 and I am up to date on all of my shots and medical care. Are you my new Mom or Dad? If so, please apply to adopt at http://www.adoptabull.org/adopt.html
Rescue Group Info...
Welcome to adoptaBull! We're reinventing English Bulldog rescue in Northern Illinois, Southeastern Wisconsin and Northwest Indiana. Our founding volunteers have over 50 years experience with English Bulldogs and know and understand the breed.
Our mission is simple- to provide the finest English Bulldog care in our service area and to make offering a home to a bulldog in need a rewarding and memorable experience for our adopters.
We are a 100% foster home program which allows us to provide every bulldog with the attention and care they need through their journey to their forever home.
adoptaBull English Bulldog Rescue participates in various public events throughout the year where you can stop by and meet some of the bulldogs in our program.
The dates and locations of these events are posted on our web site at http://adoptabull.org/Events.html.
If you are interested in adopting one of our English Bulldogs, our process begins with an online application. This application can be found on our web site at http://adoptabull.org/adopt.html.
This page also contains a complete overview of our adoption process as well as answers to many frequently asked questions about adopting a bulldog through adoptaBull English Bulldog Rescue. Once we receive your application, one of our Case Managers will guide you though our phone interview and home visit steps.
Our adoption fees vary based on the age and ongoing health of the bulldog but generally average around $550. All of the bulldogs we place are current on vaccinations, heartworm tested and heartworm free, microchipped and spayed or neutered.
We serve Chicago and all of its surrounding suburbs, Northern Illinois, Northwest Indiana and Southeatern Wisconsin to Milwaukee.
We also work cooperatively with most other English Bulldog Rescue groups in the Midwest to help you locate a bulldog to adopt or find a new home for a bulldog in need.
