Story
Brewster arrived to the shelter on 7/22/23 after being hit by a car 😮 Luckily, the impact was very minor with Brewster mostly received a cut to his noggin and the finders taking hm to their house until an Animal Control Officer arrived. Brewster is an upbeat & laid back guy that enjoys spending time with people and other dogs of similar casual energy style. Brewster can routinely be seen sporting his big happy smile, and occasionally sporting some dapper attire 😛 He has no problem donning a outfit if it means more attention and #GoodBoy back scratches 🙂 HI!

HI! My Name Is Bonnie Pet ID: #A601751 Intake Date: 10/31/2023 Gender: Female Age: 6 Years Old Breed: American Bulldog Found At: 2800 Gale Ave. Long Beach, CA 90810 Bonnie is a 6 year old female #BullDog that was picked up on Halloween after being spotted appearing very ill laying on a sidewalk driveway. She spent the 1st four days at an urgent care center due to her weak condition, flea infestation, urinary tract infection, and gastroenteritis with some type of foreign object in her stomach. Luckily, she was able to recover from most of her ailments and is now at the shelter. Although she was picked up already having a microchip, all contact information on the chip is outdated and as each day passes chances of Bonnie's owner looking for her seem like a lost cause. If you are interested in adopting a new friend into your home & helping a homeless pet please visit or contact the shelter.

Story
Abram Male - American Bulldog Age 5/6 Good with kids: yes Good with dogs/cats: Not at this time Abram is an American Bulldog that was turned in to the SEAACA shelter as a stray.  He was horribly emaciated, had a very bad upper respiratory infection, and he was covered in fleas and ticks and had an intestinal parasite.  In general, his condition was just awful. Due to his condition, he was labeled rescue only.  We couldn't just let him sit there.  We immediately got him to our vet.  He got medication for his URI, bloodwork done and a fecal test.  In his foster home, he got a bath, washing off about 7 million dead fleas and ticks.  It wasn't a surprise when his bloodwork came back that he was anemic.   He is fed as much as we can safely feed him, and he has a nice warm place to recover from his URI. He has shown an intense response when seeing other dogs, and the condition of the scarring on his head tells us that he has had a bad experience with another dog at one point.  We will only place him in a home with no dogs. He is a dream walker on leash, and only pulls if he sees another dog; however, he takes correction very well.  He is the best cuddler and snuggler on the planet and is such a happy, friendly boy.   Please view his profile and additional photos at this site:   Abram (rrboxerrescue.org) If interested, our application tab is listed at the top of our webpage.February 20, 2024, 10:25 pm

Story
Heddo! My name is Cade, and I’m an American Bulldog. I am three years old. I was rescued by Samson's Sanctuary after I was dumped out of a car in Azusa, CA. I may be a big guy, but I have a big heart full of love to give. I love nothing more than to sprawl out on the couch, flip over and let my belly be exposed to the world. It's my favorite position to sleep in, and it shows how comfortable and relaxed I am in my home. Because of my past, I’m a bit cautious around men. I'm more comfortable at first if a female is around too. It's not that I don't like men, I just need time to warm up to them. Once I trust you, though, I will love you fiercely and never forget you. Oh boy, do I love adventures! I'm always up for a good hike in the great outdoors. I love to be in water! There's so much to explore and so many new smells to sniff. I love getting my nose into everything and finding out what's around the next corner. When I'm out hiking, I like to take my time and really soak it all in. I’m independent but I do love spending time together, I prefer my people to be home with me but I don’t need to be in the same room with you always. I will rest my big head on your lap occasionally and I will sit in your lap for butt scratches. I prefer to be pet on my back until I trust you and then you can touch my head. I get along great with other dogs my size and smaller as long as they are friendly, but I do like to chase cats, so we probably wouldn’t be the best roommates. I’d be great in a home with older kids due to my size. One thing you should know about me is that I'm food motivated. If you've got a tasty treat for me, I'll do just about anything you ask and I will drool to prove it. And if someone comes to the door, I'll be sure to let you know. I'm a great guard dog and always on alert. I LOVE squeaky toys and tug of war. I’m also very fond of BONES and frozen tasty treats. I’ve been in foster care for almost a year! But, my foster mom and trainer work hard on teaching me new skills and giving me structure and boundaries. I walk with a loose leash, I am muzzle trained, I know multiple commands and will work for food. I don’t mean to brag but I am extremely smart and learn very quickly! I need mental stimulation and a good amount of space for my zoomies. I even have my own social media @CadeTheBulldog ! Check out all my awesome adventures! All I really want is a caring and patient family who will love me for who I am and take me on all sorts of adventures, even better if you have previous American Bulldog experience.

These pups are in Costa Mesa, California too!

If you are interested in one of our dogs, please complete an application on line at www.ahome4everrescue.org Prince is a wonderful dog who was placed on the euth list because he had lost weight.   After being rescued from the shelter and placed in a loving home he regained his weight and became the happy dog he  was meant to be.   He still suffers from anxiety and will need to be in a home that will continue his training as he regains confidence.  He will do best in a home with an experienced owner.   If you are interested in Prince please complete an application on line at www.ahome4everrescue.org.  --- Come meet our dogs on Saturdays at PetSmart in Costa Mesa from 11:30-2:30. All A Home 4 Ever Rescue dogs receive a wellness exam by our veterinarian and are up to date with vaccinations. They are spayed or neutered and microchipped before they go to their adoptive families. If you would like more information please email the Adoption Director at muellenbergerin@gmail.com   February 18, 2024, 3:57 pm
