My story

Meet this beautiful little girl, Olive. She absolutely adores being around people. She will sit in your lap and roll around. Olive loves to be pet and rubbed behind the ears. She will give you kisses while you pet her. Her soft fur feels like cashmere and her markings are adorable. What a beauty!



Olive is around 5 years old. The first part of her little life is somewhat of a mystery. She was discovered after being abandoned in a cardboard box, together with another pup. A good Samaritan brought her to the Anti Cruelty Society where volunteers contacted IEBR.



Olive is very mobile, she walks and runs around and loves to explore the garden rolling around in the grass and chasing leaves. Olive can climb up two steps and navigate furniture, toys or any obstacle in front of her. She will run into your arms if you call her name! She does have the tendency to have her back legs collapse when she is standing idle, hinting at some mobility functional shortfalls.



Olive loves squeaky toys. She knows how to bite them repeatedly to make the sound continue non-stop. She quickly drops one toy to run to the next. She loves to chew so when she comes for your shoes (and your feet!) you have to distract her with a toy. She drops to her blankets and bed when she is tired, napping regularly and settling well through the night.



Olive has Spina Bifida and is incontinent so she does wear diapers. She does really well with diaper changes and loves her little outfits.



Olive is truly a love muffin that is going to make some lucky family very happy.

Why adoption is a great option

Olive, a Decatur 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 Decatur, or seeking a English Bulldog dog from a breeder in Decatur.

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