My story

adoptaBull english bulldog rescue only adopts within our Midwestern radius. Our radius includes Chicago and suburbs, most of Northern Illinois, SW Wisconsin, and NW Indiana. If you fall within our adoption radius and are interested in adopting, please apply on our website: www.adoptabull.org Thank you!

Chewbacca came to adoptaBull as a transfer from a shelter. He is a very playful and lovable guy!! He is the perfect bully in so many ways--crate trained, potty trained, plays well with other dogs, and just looking for attention and affection. Perfect in all ways except he suffers from epitheliotropic cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. He has some lumps on his body that could become bigger and open. Right now, Chewy is on an antibiotic and many of his lesions have actually decreased in size and cleared up. He is pain free and has intact skin. An x-ray done on 7/7/22 indicates that his lungs are clear and healthy. The condition is expected to be progressive and spread over time and may eventually target internal organs like the spleen, liver or lungs. His life expectancy is greatly reduced, therefore he is a hospice adoption. Currently, Chewy is living a normal, happy life in his foster home. It would be phenomenal if he could spend the rest of his happy days in a forever, loving home.

All of the bulldogs we place are current on vaccinations, heartworm tested and heartworm free, microchipped and spayed or neutered.
