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!

Nelsa is a sweet girl who is 2 years old and loves attention, love and walks. She is very strong and interacts well with my 6 children. She doesn’t jump on them or get hyper. Our family has a new baby and it is very hard for us to attend to Nelsa’s needs. We have an older dog Emma who is a bichon mix. Nelsa and Emma do play together and chase each other. I am seeking a loving family to adopt her and give her the love and attention she needs.

Story
We found Busta when we were living in Louisiana. He kept escaping from his owner's yard, & he would always come to our house & want to hang out with us & our dogs. I would give him water & let him inside if it was too hot. We ended up asking our neighbor if she would want to let us adopt him from her, and she agreed! So, we brought him with us to Illinois, but now we have to move into a place where he won't be allowed. This is the only place in the area we can afford. We want to stay nearby family. Our neighbors in Louisiana claimed he was about the same age as my husky, which would be 13 years old this year. He is a very agile & strong dog for his age. He has a submissive temperment, is wonderful with kids and people of all ages. We got him comfortable in a crate inside at night, and he will sleep outdoors in a pen if needed also. He has separation anxiety & can be destructive if left alone, so he must be crated if left alone or unsupervised. He loves snuggles & pets!!

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
Pax came to us from a multiple-dog family, so he is good with other dogs. He's also great with the children in his foster home. He's looking for a forever home . . . how about yours? He is food motivated and an enthusiastic student when training. He rides comfortably in a car, is house trained, crate trained and leash trained. He has been surrounded by a loving foster family but his public exposure has been limited. Obedience classes would be great once he's comfortable in a new environment. They would reinforce the training he's had, and would widen his world, showing him unknown humans are a source of positive attention and rewards. FOCCAS is a foster based, non-profit rescue in Crossville, TNAdoption Fee: Local $225 – Transport out of state to Great Lakes and New England regions $525The Adoption Fee Includes Age-Appropriate Vaccinations (DA2PPV, Bordetella, Rabies), Deworming, Spay/Neuter, Microchip, Flea, Tick and Heartworm Treatment and Prevention, and Sheltering.

Story
Ginger is a 3 year old bulldog mix (she will be 4 in October). We adopted ginger in September 2022 as a rescue. She has lived in our home with our other dog, cat and two young children and has done great with them from the start. She is a very sweet dog and just loves her people. She is definitely a couch potato who can usually be found cuddled up with our other dog in their bed. We have worked with her on walking on the leash and she has done well with some training using a gentle leader. She is very responsive to training with treats. Ginger is crate trained as well. Ginger does seem to have some separation anxiety that is why she is in the crate when no one is home. She does occasionally have accidents in the house mostly only when left alone. She would do best with a family who can continue to work with her on training, and with someone who can spend a lot of time with their pups. Ginger is a great dog and such a sweetheart, and deserves a family who can devote the time to her.

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 Wheaton, Illinois too!
