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?

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!

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

Story
This is Sofi, Sofi is 6 years old. You might remember that Sofi came in with her brother Larry. When we get dogs from the same family, we like to keep them in the same foster home if at all possible, to determine if they are a bonded pair. We quickly realized that Sofi and Larry are not bonded. In fact, they are very independent of one another. Sofi’s foster mom says this about Sofi. “She is an absolute snuggle bug”. “She is an easy dog who doesn’t require much except for your love and snuggles”. With that said, Sofi is being treated for anxiety. She is on a low dose anti-anxiety medication 2x daily. Sofi is fully house broken. She tolerates other dogs but doesn’t love to have them take her humans love. She currently lives in a home with her sibling Larry and another foster and is good with them (no food or toy aggression) but would thrive in a home where she is the only dog. For this reason, we are looking for a family that will make Sofi their one and only! Are you looking for an absolute snuggle bug to fill your heart with love? If so, Sofi is your girl. Sofi will be ready for adoption very soon. If you think Sofi is a fit fill out your application today!! If you are interested in Sofi 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. Sofi adoption fee is: $600.00 Visit us on Facebook: Visit us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IllinoisEnglishBulldogRescue

Story
Hey, Everyone! My name is Sarge. My foster family likes to call me Sargio or Sargie though. They think it fits me a little better. I came into foster care in early December. I was found out in the middle of no where by a nice lady. It was cold and I was so, so hungry that I was eating roadkill. :( I was taken to the local animal control where a different nice lady took care of me. I was never claimed so animal control reached out to IEBR and then I came to my foster parent's house. I am about 4 1/2 years old and a good boy! I'm a little taller than your average English Bullie and my legs are a little taller, this happens to help me be a little more athletic. I'm pretty quick and agile, if I do say so myself. So far, here are a few things that my foster family knows about me.... I really, really like to be with my humans. I have my foster Dad trained well. He's been sleeping with me at night so I don't feel lonely. :) I also like the Mom here and the little human. I'm not 100% sure about the other dogs here yet. There's a little girl dog that seems nice. They also have these things called "cats". They are a little odd, but I don't mind them. However, I AM a little concerned about the other bulldogs here, especially the big boy bulldog, but my foster family thinks I can get over my worries. To be honest, I'm worried that he might take my food or my new bones and after going without these things, I want to make sure it doesn't happen again... Did I mention that I love, love, LOVE food?? I'm definitely food motivated!! I wanted to tell you this other thing that my foster Mom can't really understand. I heard her telling someone that it "breaks her heart". So, besides the fact that I was found alone in cold weather, underweight, and being forced to fend for myself, I also have this strange old wound on one of my back legs. It doesn't hurt anymore and the hair is growing back, so that's good stuff, but my foster Mom would sure like to know what happened. The thing that foster Mom really doesn't get, though, is that I know about being in a house and I know how to shake paws. Someone loved me enough to teach me things! I like to think of myself as a pretty nice fella, so how I came to find myself alone in the country is beyond me! I'm sure none of you would blame me if I told you that I'm kind of afraid of some things. (Um, no thank you, fireworks and spray bottles!). I'm up to date on all my vaccines and I've been neutered already, but I'm not quite ready for adoption as my foster family is still getting to know my personality and helping me put on some weight. Soooo, to make a long story short, I'll be looking for my forever family soon. If you're interested in possibly adopting me or one of my pals in IEBR, go to our website (www.ilenglishbulldog.org) to read about adoption policies and procedures. Love, Sargio If you are interested in Sarge 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. Sarge's adoption fee is: $900.00 Visit us on Facebook: Visit us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IllinoisEnglishBulldogRescue

Hello world, meet Frida! Frida had a rough start to life, and came to IEBR when she was almost six months old. She has healed beautifully and is now a happy and healthy one year old! Frida 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. She doesn’t let this hold her back, though! Frida has gained so much strength and balance since she’s been in foster care that you would never know from looking at her that she has any mobility issues. She loves to go on walks around the block and is always game for a shoulder rub or back scratches. In fact, she’ll just crawl right into your lap to make it easier for you to administer those massages! Frida also has the very endearing habit of getting right up to her foster parents’ faces and gently nibbling their noses. Her affection just melts your heart, but her 50lb body perched on your lap can be a lot; she will need someone to remind her of her size around small people or those who prefer less physical contact. Frida’s ideal living situation would be a home with a dog-friendly sofa, not a ton of stairs and access to a fenced yard for play. Her foster parents strongly recommend using a sturdy changing table for her diaper changes and other physical maintenance; this is what she is used to and it makes her routine so much easier! Frida’s regular physical maintenance includes all of the normal bulldog stuff like cleaning face wrinkles and ears, administering eye ointment for her cherry eye (which will be surgically treated in March 2024), and moisturizing her cute little nose as needed. In addition, Frida 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. Frida needs help expressing her bowels during diaper changes, which may sound intimidating but is actually pretty quick and easy. She requires daily diaper-free "naked time” to allow her skin to breathe and air out. Frida 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. Frida loves to have a warm bath and will park herself next to the tub at the slightest hint of a bath time. Frida lived happily with a senior bulldog foster brother for several months and would probably enjoy having a calm fur sibling in her world. She developed aggression toward her female litter mate at 8-10 month sold, which is not at all unusual for litter mates who remain together. Frida has enjoyed the company of her two labrador foster cousins when they visit and has met other dogs while on leash walks without incident. Her foster family thinks Frida would do best with more submissive or non-confrontational canine companions. All people are great as far as Frida is concerned, and she earns fans everywhere she goes! This gorgeous little nugget will make her forever family swoon -- and laugh a LOT. One additional consideration is that Frida's vets have strongly recommended that any future surgeries (such as her upcoming cherry eye repair) be performed at a facility with board-certified anesthesiologists. She had a scary response the first time she was put under, and both her regular vet and the specialists she's seen feel that she's safest with a team of board-certified anesthesiologists.
