Story
Hello, my name is Max, and I am a 1 years young mixed breed. Maybe an American or French bulldog / Australian cattle dog mix? I weigh 44 lbs, and I am a stocky guy. I was an owner surrender because they had financial hardship and to move out of their house and into an apartment that didnt allow dogs. Despite all the upheaval in my life lately, I am friendly and trusting and sweet. I am a medium energy guy, and I am very quiet in the house. Because of my bulldog side, I need lots of exercise. If you have a fenced yard that I can run around, thats great. I also am really good on a leash, so if you like to take frequent walks with me, Id like that, too! I know what toys are, and I like to play tug of war with my foster dad. I am very social and friendly, and I will wag my tail for any human I encounter. My previous family had kids, and Ive had positive interactions with kids as young as 7 since coming to TAR. When I get really excited like when you come home from the grocery store I do sometimes jump up. So, it might be best if kids in my new home are at least 5, or similar weight as me or just comfortable with a dog who sometimes get really excited to see his humans. I really like to be with my humans at all times. If you leave me alone in a room, I will whine loudly. So, Id really prefer an active family where someone is with me most of the time like a stay at home parent, or a work from home person. Oh, and if youre going out, I really like car rides. Im really good in the car, so maybe just take me with you! I am house trained, and Ill go to the door if I need to go outside. My foster home has 3 other dogs, all similar size as me, and I do well with them. I ignore cats. If you have a fenced yard where we can play fetch in, Id love that! And if youre looking for a great walking buddy, I love to walk outside. One day a family is going to come meet me, says my foster family. And, when you do can expect that I will come right up to you, tail wagging and asking for pets. I may roll over for belly rubs or just climb up in your lap. And, if you left your car door open, Ill hop right in so you can take me home! I am such a sweet, social, adaptable dog that my foster mom says that any family will be lucky to have me and Ill make a great family pet. I promise that I will be by your side for the rest of my life. When you meet me, you will see that I just want to be loved and part of a family again. Will you give me my forever home? Love, Max Maxis located in our foster home in Downers Grove.

American Bulldog Olde English Bulldogge

Male, Adult

Story
Bruce is a neutered 5 year old male Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog. He's housebroken and enjoys the company of adults, tends, and children. Bruce is a sweet man he is a snuggler and loves to be loved. He loves to go on walks and cuddle with his "baby" a toy he fiercely protects and gently cares for. He has a huge heart and is truly the kindest and most gentile soul. We adopted him at the age of 2.5, with little information about his history except for a previously broken left leg, which gives him a unique swagger. We discovered that Bruce is skittish around certain objects like brooms and poles, likely due to past abuse. He's also frightened by loud noises. Bruce also experiences skin allergies and chronic ear infections. Currently he is prescribed Apoquel for skin allergies. He and our older dog have gotten into several altercations that have resulted in injury requiring us to rehome him. He needs to be in a single dog home.

Hi my name is Groogle. I am a happy-go-lucky pup who is always smiling! Although my smile now is pretty big I'm sure it will only get bigger when I find my forever home! I know if you took me home I would keep a smile on your face every day! What do you say we test it out?
