Story
Hi, I'm Arwen and I am so glad you are taking a look at me. I am a 70-pound ball of energy and personality! I would love a family that can keep up with me. I would prefer to be the only dog in your home, but I have the potential for playdates. I've made friends with the kennel staff and training team. I would prefer to have a small group of friends, sometimes the little humans can be scary! Would you like to be my friend? Arwen is working on her basic cues and loose leash walking. This girl LOVES food and toys. She is very motivated to train! I would love to be a hiking buddy, and outside is my favorite and I like to parkour! Rock, benches, tree stumps, you name it, I want to jump on it. My favorite things: Being outside! I love to soak in the sun, smell all the smells, and adventure with my trainers. Cream cheese and chicken are my favorite treats Stuffy toys Car rides Enrichment boxes Booty scratches (once we a friends) Cues that I know: Sit, down Touch Working on muzzle training Loose leash walking Relaxation Arwen is an All-Star dog! Her adoption appointment includes a discussion with our Training Team, and she will go home with his very own no-pull-harness and a few enrichment goodies to help get her off to a good start! To schedule an appointment to meet Arwen, email info@ahconnects.org (please include your name and phone number), and the staff will be happy to help you!

Story
This handsome mug belongs to Porkchop! Porkchop is an 11 month old Bulldog mix who weighs about 60 pounds! He is a happy boy who loves to play with the resident dogs in his foster home. He's cautious and can be a nervous nelly, so slow introductions to new dogs, kids, and humans work best for this guy. He would love to have a confident and relaxed dog buddy in his forever home! After he gets used to new people, he loves to dole out kisses :) Porkchop is pen and crate trained, and potty trained! He's a young dog so he will need continued training and direction in his forever home. He thrives with routine and repetition. This includes his walk routes! He enjoys going for walkies but he likes to stick to a route he's comfortable with since new things can be scary! Porkchop's dream home is one where his humans will keep up with his training and help him build confidence, and give hime time and space to adjust to new things. He's such a sweet buddy who loves belly rubs, attention, and food, and he always gets so excited to see his humans when they come home! If you'd like to be showered with kisses every time you walk through the door, don't sleep on Porkchop! Porkchop's adoption fee is $650.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Please contact LMo for more information about this pet.Thanks for your interest in a pet from A.R.F.! If you see a pet here, they are still available for adoption and you should apply through our adoption application on our website at  https://www.arf-il.org/adopt/application/   Meet Ripley, a sweet, spayed, American Bulldog female, who will be six years old this November. She loves to play fetch in the yard, go for walks, and play with other dogs at her two favorite day care facilities, Bark Avenue in Bartlett and DePaw Pet Resort in Geneva. Despite her outgoing personality with other canines, she prefers to live in a home where she is the only pet, and that is why she finds herself in search of a new home. She has spent the majority of her life living with humans of all ages, including young children, and loves to cuddle. One of her all time favorite hobbies is eating, as evidenced by her healthy weight of 88 pounds! She requires prescription dog food (Royal Canin Ultamino) and a couple of daily over the counter medications (Omeprazole and a probiotic) due to a vitamin B12 deficiency that is well managed with subcutaneous VitB12 injections every other week. It is quick and easy and done in the convenience of your home. She looks forward to her medication every morning because she takes it with a hefty dose of peanut butter! Two months worth of food, medications and an entire bottle of VitB12 (that lasts a whole year) is included with her adoption. Ripley is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken and spayed . The new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing. The adoption fee for this pet is $250.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting this dog fill out an Online Application today!

Story
Meet Ford, a remarkable Bulldog whose presence is as powerful and steadfast as a mighty river. Just like the characteristics of his breed, Ford embodies kindness and courage, showcasing a unique blend of friendliness and dignity. Now you may not see it by looking into his gorgeous brown eyes, but Ford has suffered in his short life.... he came to the rescue from the streets with a HORRIFIC hernia on his back end, near his rectum. He required two surgeries to correct the hernia and allow him to have a normal life again. He came through with SHINING colors ;) With his well-muscled frame and low-slung stature, Ford is the epitome of a true bruiser, but it's his iconic "sourmug" face that represents his unwavering courage and tenacity. Despite his robust appearance, Ford is a docile and loyal companion, adapting seamlessly to any environment, be it the bustling city or the serene countryside. With Ford by your side, you'll experience the unwavering devotion and unmistakable presence of a Bulldog, a breed that leaves an indelible mark on your heart. Don't miss the opportunity to welcome this incredible Bulldog into your life, as Ford's unique spirit will bring joy, love, and an unmistakable charm that only he can deliver. Some basic information about Ford; he is male, a Bulldog mix, and is medium-sized (20-59lbs). Ford is not great with other dogs (or cats or other critters) and would be best in a home with either only adults or older children and as a single dog. But his heart will fill your home with all the love you need!!! Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)

These pups are in Elgin, Illinois too!

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. *If you are interested in being considered for this dog, please be sure to complete an application directly on our website, www.hoofwoofmeow.org - not through a 3rd party service.**   Luke is a 45 lb. social butterfly, who melts hearts wherever he goes. He is a smart pup and fast learner while working with a professional dog trainer. Luke walks great on a leash, potty-trained, crate-trained and dog-friendly. He would do well as the only resident dog or with other pups in the household. Luke is a natural-born people and dog lover. He jumps in excitement (something he's working on), so children should be 9+ years of age, if any, in the household. He sleeps through the night, usually on his back and snoring in his crate. Luke would benefit from an active family who has a fenced-in-yard and committed to continue his training and taking him on dog-friendly adventures. He wants to be in on the action during the day, so minimal crate time during the day would be a better fit. Whether it's playtime in his foster’s fenced in backyard or cuddles on the couch, Luke is always ready to spread happiness and joy to everyone he meets. Get ready to fall head over heels for this adorable pup! Estimated birth date 5/29/2023. Luke’s adoption fee is $400 - which includes core vaccinations (age appropriate), microchip & spay/neuter at one of our contracted vets (completed)   *Hoof Woof & Meow Animal Rescue presents the information in these bios based on our foster observations and any information presented to us regarding prior living conditions, breed specifications.
