Petunia's Story...
Nice to meet you! Petunia here –my friends call me “Tuna”. I’m about 3 years young, I think….I may have lost track of a year or two. I’m a puppy mill survivor, and I’m doing my best to forget all about that place.

Lucky for me, I am now in a foster home with two bully foster sisters, who are teaching me about life as a companion dog. I am starting to get the hang of it - I already have a favorite spot on the couch! My second favorite spot is my crate, sometimes I get scared of people or lots of activity and I run in there to feel safe – sometimes I just hang out in there because it’s comfy.

I’m new to this whole world you live in, so I like to have some extra wiggle room when I’m trying something new – like stairs, walking on a leash, meeting new people, eating from my bowl, and walking out in public. I’m not impolite by any means; I just lay down and sometimes cower a little bit – I’m just nervous. Eventually, I’ll get used to those things – but for now, I’ll do whatever it is I need to if you’ll just give me a little bit of space. However, if you’re holding my eye drops or my pills wrapped in something delicious- I will politely take them, those are important to me and I’m getting used to the routine of taking them.

Know what I got used to quickly? Cuddles. I will cuddle with anyone who wants to sit down with me – especially my bully foster sisters and my foster mom. I also like watching TV, I am most attentive when watching the military channel (my foster grandpa introduced me to that)! But don’t worry- I also like watching sports, drama, comedies and even reality TV, I don’t discriminate.

I’m not all about being a couch potato though – I like being outside too. Heck, if you leave the door open for me- I’ll let myself out! My foster mom thinks I’m part goat – I’m always looking to eat grass (nervous habit- I’m trying to quit!).

If I had to pick my perfect home, I’d pick a home where I can have company most of the time. I like the car, so I’d be happy to travel with you if you're looking for a co-pilot!.

Hope to hear from ya soon!

Petunia's adoption fee is $575.00.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Petunia, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a English Bulldog dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago 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 Chicago 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 Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
