Story
This adorable little lady is Tootsie. She is roughly 5 years old and only 37lbs. She was found as a stray and as soon as her hold was up she came to IEBR. She tested positive for heart worms and as been fully treated and doing great. As we got to know Tootsie in her foster home it seems most likely she was abused with her previous owners but she learned to trust her foster parents and is a super sweet girl. She is crate trained but prefers to sleep with her foster mom. Because of her past abuse we are looking for a home with no children and a calm fur sibling or be an only dog. Are you that family? If you are interested in Tootsie, please visit our website: www.ilenglishbulldogrescue.org, and read through our adoption criteria to see if you meet our requirements. If you do, please fill out an application to adopt. Tootsie's adoption fee is: $650.00 Visit us on Facebook: Visit us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IllinoisEnglishBulldogRescue

Story
Hello world, meet Grey! Grey had a rough start to life, and came to IEBR when she was almost six months old. She has come so far in her healing and has blossomed into a goofy and loving young lady! Grey was born with spina bifida, a congenital defect of the spinal cord. As a result, she has some weakness in her hind limbs and is a fully incontinent diaper girl. When she came into rescue, this sweet baby also had two partially torn cranial cruciate ligaments in her knees, but they are scarring over and stabilizing without surgery and her mobility and endurance have increased tremendously in the past several months. Grey has the sweetest disposition, loves all people, and is friendly with other dogs. A playful fur sibling would be a dream come true for her. Also on her wish list are a comfy couch, someone to give her shoulder massages and snuggles, and access to as many tennis balls as possible. Grey has three modes: sacked out and snoring, sweet and cuddly, and up and ready to play and won’t leave you alone until you throw her ball at least a few times. Her puppy energy comes out in little bursts throughout the day and she gets restless without daily exercise, so play time and/or daily short walks are a must. The rest of the time she is happy to nap on the back of the couch, where she can enjoy both the view and the sunbeams. Grey’s ideal living situation would be a home with few stairs and access to a fenced yard for play. Her regular physical maintenance includes all of the normal bulldog stuff like cleaning face wrinkles and ears, administering eye ointment for her dry eye, and moisturizing her cute little nose as needed. In addition, Grey requires diaper changes every 3-4 hours during the day. Her skin is prone to irritation, so each change includes a thorough cleaning and application of diaper cream and Aquaphor. Her foster parents strongly recommend using a sturdy changing table; this is what Grey is used to and it makes her maintenance so much easier! Grey requires daily diaper-free “naked time” to allow her skin to breathe and air out. She is currently crated with no diaper overnight and any time her foster parents need to be away from home longer than 3-4 hours. Her crate needs to be cleaned daily and her bedding laundered. Grey would like her future family to know that bathtime is the BEST time, especially when a peanut butter lick mat is involved. As soon as she hears someone getting a towel from the linen closet, she runs straight to the tub! Grey has gotten along so well with other puppies, younger dogs, and her senior foster brother. She does get warned off on occasion for being too enthusiastic and affectionate but she responds well to this and backs off when she needs to. Grey enjoyed the company of her littermate Frida until she was about 8-10 months old, at which point Frida developed aggression toward Grey (which is common in littermates). She lives every day like it’s Tongues Out Tuesday and greets every morning like it’s the Best Day Ever. What more could you wish for? This sweet, sensitive, goofy girl will be a loyal and loving member of a lucky forever family! If you are interested in Grey please visit our website: www.ilenglishbulldogrescue.org, and read through our adoption criteria to see if you meet our requirements. If you do, please fill out an application to adopt. Greys's adoption fee is $550.00 Visit us on Facebook: Visit us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IllinoisEnglishBulldogRescue

Story
A little about Vivi and Leona. These two almost 4-year-old sisters are truly besties. They love to sleep together, cuddle, and sit beside each other. They are both house-trained. We are working with them to signal when they need to go outside, but they are quick to do their business and yes, they follow each other to where they go. Leona is VERY energetic and puppy-like. She is learning new commands when jumping to much and sitting when prepping her harness. She is treat motivated. She does enjoy rolling around and talking to herself. She eats fast, so trying to slow that down and prefers a raised bowl, as she has had a few spit ups after eating. She is good with other dogs and people. She loves being pet and lots of belly rubs. She is protective of Vivi and will whine if she is out of sight or to far away for longer periods of time. Vivi is more gentle, quieter and fluffy. She loves to cuddle and be pet regularly. She is treat motivated and good on a harness. She has some skin sensitivties and allergies. Needs attention to what she is eating and watching her paws and under her legs for itching and redness. She loves to get Leona going and they play very well together. She can be a little instigator at times, waking up Leona. They both listen to basic commands, more training needed in excited moments. Food allergies for Vivi will be a constant issue to watch and care for. Leona has a little spot of redness, but the vet believes that can be corrected with the right food. They sleep well, and there are no accidents at night. They both truly think they are lap dogs and love to lick your face, a lot. They girls are a bonded pair and will need to be adopted together when they are ready. If you are interested in Vivi and Leona please visit our website: www.ilenglishbulldogrescue.org, and read through our adoption criteria to see if you meet our requirements. If you do, please fill out an application to adopt. Vivi and Leona's adoption fee is: $1,000.00 Visit us on Facebook: Visit us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IllinoisEnglishBulldogRescue
