Rasco's Story...
Rasco is a gorgeous 2 year old American Bulldog, and weighs about 85 lbs. Rasco is a big boy who just wants to be around the family! He is very affectionate. He would love to cuddle, but we do not let him on the furniture. When you greet him and pet him, he quickly lays down and rolls over for a belly rub. He is a low-key dog, and is self-entertained. His favorite thing is a tennis ball, which he likes to chew on and strip the felt off of! He will also go get the ball if you throw it, but he isn't so great at bringing it back yet :)

Rasco is potty trained and crate trained. He enjoys spending time in his crate while we watch tv. Usually he is crated during the day, and is let out for play and exercise. He goes into the crate willingly, most often without being asked. He does well with a routine, and needs only a moderate amount of exercise. He enjoys his walks and playing with his tennis ball in the back yard.
He knows some basic commands, such as sit, lay, and stay (but not 100% of the time). Rasco is curious about water, but has only been exposed to a pool. He will go onto the first steps, but is not too sure about going in deeper. He sleeps on his own dog bed and does not try to jump onto the bed. Rasco does very well on a leash now, and is not affected by other dogs walking by. Rasco also does well with strangers and children while on walks. When I work in the garage, he is on a rope and does not bark or pay much attention to people walking by with their dogs.

After an adjustment period, Rasco has been very good around our small dogs. Initial exposure to other large dogs was not very positive, but we are working with a trainer and will soon try to introduce him to other large dogs to gauge his temperament. Rasco would probably be best in a home where he was the only dog, but as we experienced with our two miniature dachshunds, he does well with small dogs. Rasco has not been exposed to cats, but does seem to have a prey drive so a home with cats is not recommended.

The adoption fee for Rasco is $275, and includes his neuter surgery, vaccinations, and costs of care while with the rescue. If you would like to give Rasco a forever home, to request an adoption application please email

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rasco, a Livermore American Bulldog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Bulldog for sale in Livermore, or seeking a American Bulldog dog from a breeder in Livermore.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Livermore 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 Livermore 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 American Bulldog breeders who help with American Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Livermore paves the way for another one to be saved.
