Story
Bertha is an amazing bulldog mix with red Merle coloring that is gorgeous. Bertha was found as a stray most likely after being used as a breeding dog. Bertha makes a great cuddle buddy on the couch, but she can also enjoy short walks with you. She loves to self entertain by chewing on her toys, she loves the simple things in life! This little potato (or is she a meatball?) is 2-3 years old and has a smile and a waddle that will melt your heart. She’s convinced she’s a lap dog, so get ready for some cozy cuddle sessions. Bertha enjoys short walks and loves chewing on her toys. Bertha would thrive with an experienced adopter, she can get a little territorial of her home due to her bulldog nature but she has been easy to work with through our trainer and would do best in a home committed to continual training. Bertha is crate trained and is learning commands like "wait" and knows how to "sit"! Her fosters describe her as a mixed breed of: rustic potatoes, meatballs, and tater tots. If your home is missing a gorgeous chunky cuddle monster, you've found her! Three words to describe Bertha? Affectionate, Super Sweet, and headstrong!

Story
Say hello to Hercules! Hercules is a sweet boy who is still very much a puppy at heart. He loves meeting new people but can get over excited and jump up to greet them. Hercules did well with children in his previous home but is very large and strong so he may do best in a home without young children. He is said to be very much a lap dog when he has excused himself playing. He is dog friendly and would love to have a buddy to play with but would do best in a home without small animals as he likes to chase them. Hercules is not crate trained but did well when left alone free roaming. Hercules is already potty trained and knows the command sit! If you're looking for a big sweet dog, Hercules is your man! Come and meet Hercules at Anti-Cruelty today!

Story
Hi! My name is Chelsea Dagger (yes, Blackhawk fans, THAT Chelsea Dagger!). Chicago Animal Control found me on the streets and when they found me, I was super thin (under 45lbs), limping, and in all-around pretty rough shape. I had obviously been bred before being abandoned. I now look healthy! My limp is gone, and I love to walk, jump and play. I even do stairs well. You would never know I have arthritis if it weren't for my daily doggie ibuprofen! The vet says I’m about 4 years old, and I am doing really well! I must have received some training along the way, because I haven’t had any accidents in the house. I am doing great with sitting, learning to stay when doors are open, and my leash walking has improved. In short, I will do just about anything for a treat. I still need to work a bit on jumping up, but I get so excited when I see my foster mom and dad that sometimes I forget. Oh, and I’m quite the wiggle-butt! Although my tail is short and stumpy it is almost always wagging. I don’t mind going in my crate to bed every night, or when my foster parents are away. Otherwise, I like to be out where I can explore and be close to whoever is in the room. I love being near my foster parents and I’m very inquisitive and affectionate. I’m learning all the different sounds of my foster house and my neighborhood. Some of them make me nervous, and sometimes I bark at night – but usually settle down pretty quickly. My foster parents tease me that I really want to be a lap dog. I’m only 50 pounds (soon to be more like 70!), so I don’t understand what the big deal is. Oh, and when my foster mom and dad are in Zoom meetings, they keep me busy with bones and licking mats – so I like it when they have meetings. I also like joining their meetings on occasion and am always the star of the show. People love my little snaggle tooth that pops out when I smile. My foster family has another female dog, and I’m not too sure about her yet. Every time I go outside, I look around to see if she is there, and wag my tail a lot when we walk together. I think I want to be friends, but I don’t know how. Maybe it is the time I spent on the street and the way I was treated by other dogs, but I always feel like I need to defend myself. I’m still working on it. I haven’t been around any children – so I’m not sure how I feel about them. I’m also not sure what cats are, or how I would feel about them. I am really smart and would love a family who would play with me, give me fun puzzles and activities to do, and most of all Cuddle! I am a full body hugger and snuggle bug. My foster parents seem to think that I would be best in a home without any other dogs so I can give all the loves and get all the loves. They tell me I am very sweet, and they think I would make a fantastic only dog.

Story
Hi! My name is Murphy and I’m 7 years old, but my foster family calls me Big Murph, Big Moose and Big Mooseman Murph! I noticed they say “big” a lot, and apparently, I am. When I was surrendered by my last home, due to a work conflict, and I weighed in at 98lbs then, but I’m already down 3lbs and looking buff! The nice people at the Dupage Animal Services knew that calling CEBR would be a great choice because they know bulldogs best! I’ve been hanging out in my very own “apartment”, it’s pretty cozy down here. Sometimes I get a little sad when my foster family isn’t down here giving me all their attention but that’s because I’m worried they’ll leave me behind. It gets kind of hard when you’re not sure of your place being that this is my 3rd home. I don’t know what I’ve done wrong. My foster family tells me I’m such a good boy and I think so myself! I’m really good at sitting for my eye and ear medicine and getting my wrinkles all wiped out. I just had an eye surgery, I swear I’m not vain! My super thick eyelashes were turned in so they were scratching my eyes, OUCH! I can see much better now and that is exciting! Speaking of exciting, guess what makes my tail spin like a tornado? Soccer balls, basketballs, tennis balls, kong balls, you name a ball and I love it already! I also have 2 foster sisters and I know I my strength so I’m a little more gentle when I play with them. I'm good with female dogs, but no male dogs for my please. There’s also a really howly guy, seriously he’s always howling, but also waiting on meeting him. I do get a super wiggly tail when we all talk to each other and I’m learning to sit when I see them past the gates. I’m hoping to be friends with them too! I’m totally potty trained, I like calming music on when I’m by myself, gentle for a big guy but mostly I just want to be loved and not move again!

Story
Hi! I’m Marge, I want all the pets, all the time. My foster mama calls me LARGE MARGE or Margie. I am about 5 years old, and a little on the husky side at just over 90lbs, but we are working on that. She is being very strict with my food and I think she is starving me. When she gives me my breakfast and dinner I make sure I get every single morsel! I like it if you stand by me and watch me eat. I get very happy. I also like to walk around with kibble and leave a treasure trail for me to find later! I like when I find kibble. We are also getting lots of exercise and I can do the stairs at the house with no problem, as long as they have carpet or rubber treads. I do have a little problem with cherry eye right now and my eyes look a little cloudy, I do a lot of nose bumping to make sure I feel the stairs when going up. An object in motion stays in motion and when I start heading down the stairs, look out cause here I come. I love to follow my foster mama everywhere, if she moves I move. She is keeping me very active. Sometimes she doesn’t know I am there because I like to be so close. When we are relaxing I like to back up to her and she can give me butt scratches and ear scratches. I love to be pet so much. I wish I could be pet all the time. I am also very vocal and will tell her when I want to be pet. I really like to pull on her heartstrings and sound like the saddest bulldog in the world. No one can resist a face like this. I don’t chew on anything that isn’t a bone or a toy, talk about good manners. I also have good manners when meeting other dogs and people. I don’t jump or lunge or bark outside, but I don’t like when other dogs have too much energy, I am a very chill kinda bulldog and like other dogs to be chill too. I’ll give that other doggie a little warning GRRRR and walk away, I am lover not a fighter. I have not met a kitty or small child yet, but like I said I am a lover, I think I like everybody. I'm house trained. I need eyedrops in my eyes because of my cherry eye, but I am very good about letting you put them in. I also love when you use a warm wash cloth and gently wipe my face, I am so thankful afterwards, also my foster mama gives me one little treat whenever I get my eyedrops so I get excited when she picks up the drops. I guess that all for now, tell ‘em Large Marge sent ya! Time to go play with my squeaky toys.

Story
Hello, I would like to introduce myself to you. I am Maddie, a 5-year young English bulldog gal with tons of energy and love to give. I came to CEBR because my owners wanted to make sure I could continue to get the good life that I deserve. When I came to my foster family, I had no clue what a crate was, but I am ok with it now. I think I would rather sleep in bed with you or on the couch at night but enjoy my comfy crate to sleep. Although I'm excited to get out of the crate between 6:00-6:30 am, I am still half asleep. I'm not a morning dog. I love a long full body massage in the morning and will happily give you my arm for scratches and lay on my side for a chest rub! I am slow moving in the morning, so I need someone with patience and time. I sometimes stop halfway down the stairs in the morning to sit and close my eyes—it's rough being up this early! I am fully house trained, and I’m smart! I can lay down, sit, and shake on command. Isn’t that cool? During the day when my foster family is gone, I can stay out of the kennel. I am a good girl. I don’t chew on things that are not mine. I mostly sleep on the couch all day but have been found in my kennel when they get home sometimes. As the day goes on, my energy kicks in full blast—especially in the evening. I love to play all the time!!! My favorite activity is tug of war. I am awesome at it. I love to be chased in the house and will dazzle you with my moves! I can run as fast backwards as forwards and will hop to keep my toy away from you! I'll keep you smiling and laughing—I bring a lot of fun!! Sometimes I just don't want to stop playing, like when my foster parents are eating supper or when I'm hot. We are working on playing independently during those times or relaxing with some cuddles. I'm slowly getting it, but you can't blame me for trying to play some more---it's just so fun!! I am a healthy girl, but my eye lashes are rubbing against my eyes, so CEBR is working to get that fixed for me. I do well getting my eye drops twice a day. For the first few weeks in my foster home, I barked into their dark kitchen in the evening. Now that they leave the light on, this behavior has almost stopped. I have a little anxiety, so I am taking a pet relaxant to help. I don't like thunderstorms, loud noises or some animals on TV, and hate the vacuum cleaner (even when it's not running). The perfect family is one that can spend a lot of time with me. I need to be the center of everything. I prefer to be the only dog and no little kids. I can’t wait to meet my forever family. That is all for now. I need to go play, so I hope to hear from you soon!
