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
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.

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. To meet Max , please complete an adoption application at: https://treasuredanimalrescueinc.org/application-dog-adoption/ Sorry, Treasured Animal Rescue does not adopt out of the State of Illinois Thank you for choosing to adopt! Please visit our website www.treasuredanimalrescueinc.org to learn more about this amazing pet and to see other available dogs and cats.

Good with kids, Good with dogs, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Bunco will be 2 years old on 5/15.  He came to us from Dupage Animal Control.  He was found a stray and later was discovered he was dumped by a back yard breeder as he was "no longer useful" to them.  He is a sweet, gentle, loving, playful Olde English Bulldog aka Victorian Bulldog. He walks great on leash.  Bunco is timid when he meets new people and is head shy at first until feels comfortable with you. His foster mom is working to build his self confidence with meeting new people. Bunco is incredibly smart, and highly food motivated which makes training fairly easy.  Bunco does great with calm, low energy dogs and is ok around cats, but will chase them.  Bunco will climb in your lap and snuggle next to you on sofa. He absolutely loves human attention/affection. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, Heartworm negative and on preventive.  House training his foster mom is still working on but have made great progress.  Adoption fee is $400  He needs an experienced pet parent/family willing to continue helping him build his confidence.   Please complete an application for adoption at FurAngelsAS.org if you would like to meet and possibly adopt this bundle of loveApril 13, 2024, 1:08 pm

Story
Hi, my name is Chopper or Chop as my foster Mom calls me! I was an owner surrender who ended up at the very scary city shelter. I sat there waiting for my former person to come back to get me, but they never did. I was pretty skittish when I got to my foster home but now I am settling in nicely. My foster Mom says I am a real sweetheart! I think I am a lap dog and will fall asleep with my head in her lap any chance I can get. Because I had a pretty rough start, I would do best in a home without small children or other pets. What can I bring to a new family? Well, I am crate trained and potty trained and neutered and up to date on all my shots! I have lots of love to give and will greet you always with a wagging tail. What am I looking for in a new furever home? I would like lots of cuddles and a gentle hand to pet me, a person or people to play and walk with, and a soft place to lay my head at night. And someone who will do some training with me so I know the boundaries and can fit well into your home! If you would be interested in meeting me, please fill out a pre adoption application or send an email and my foster Mom will get back to you just as quick as she can! XOXOXO-Chop
