Posted Breed: American Bulldog (short coat). Meet the AMAZING Monti! This boy loves to play with ropes and play tug-a-war, he knows how to swim and loves summer days in the pool, which is not typical of his breed, but Monti is no typical guy! This hunk loves car rides and going out for his daily adventure! Monti is well trained, walks great on leash, and knows his basic commands. He is a big boy, so needs someone who knows how to manage his personality properly with the right combination of love, respect and leadership. He is fine with other smaller or submissive dogs, but would do best in a home as the only dog as he prefers to be the center of attention!! Monti adores well mannered children and is just the most amazing companion! If Monti sounds like the guy for you, please e-mail us to savealife@4liferescue.org

American Bulldog

Overview: Originally used in the 17th century for bull baiting—a wagering sport in which dogs fought bulls in a ring—Bulldogs had taller, more athletic frames (much like the Olde English Bulldogge). When bull baiting was outlawed in 1835, Bulldogs were bred to be kinder, heavier and more relaxed. However, American Bulldogs—which were brought to the U.S. before this breeding pattern—retained the size and strength of the original Bulldogs. Great family dogs, American Bulldogs are sweet to children. They love family-oriented occasions and want to be involved. With proper training and socialization, you’ll find them outgoing and exceedingly loyal. Some American Bulldogs will go to great lengths to protect their masters. Tough and determined, American Bulldogs have an impressive stamina and strength. They are always game for playtime in the back yard or working in the field.
Breed Group: Non-Sporting
Weight (lbs): male-70-120 female-60-100
Height (in): 19-27
Colors: white, brindle, brown, red or tan
Coat: Short, coarse coat. For such a short haired dog, American Bulldogs shed more than you might think. Their short coarse hairs come off on your hands when you pet them, and stick tenaciously to your clothing, upholstery, and carpeting.
Character: American Bulldogs are friendly, happy lovable dogs with an assertiveness and confidence that never gets out of control. Though initially stubborn in training, they soon respond to their masters’ commands and prove to be endlessly faithful companions.
Temperament: American Bulldogs are loyal and loving animals that prefer to be with people. They do well with children, when socialized from a young age. May not do well with other dogs.
Care: The short coat requires infrequent bathing and brushing.
Training: This breed needs firm, consistent, but not harsh training. They are highly trainable and can be used as agility or search and rescue dogs.
Activity: American Bulldogs MUST have regular opportunities to vent their energy and do interesting things. Otherwise they will become rambunctious and bored -- which they usually express by barking and destructive chewing. Bored American Bulldogs can make a shambles of your house and yard.
Country of Origin: USA
Health Issue: American Bulldogs generally live from 10 to 16 years, and tend to be strong, physically active, and often healthy. Some health problems in American bulldogs are often found within certain genetic lines, and are not common to the entire breed, while others, such as neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL),[1] Ichthyosis, disorders of the kidney and thyroid, ACL tears, hip dysplasia, cherry eye, elbow dysplasia, entropion, ectropion, and bone cancer are more common to the general population of American Bulldogs. There are DNA tests available to help breeders screen breeding animals for NCL (neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis)[1] and Ichthyosis. It is highly recommended to spend time to research your breeder information, including your American Bulldog's family history. A Penn Hip (Pennsylvania Hip Improvement project) or OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) screening is recommended for all potential breeding animals. Some breeds of American Bulldog are prone to allergies. Symptoms like a runny nose or a rash are examples of signs of allergies. Some vets recommend dog owners to give 25 mg of Benadryl per day; in most cases it helps.
Life Expectancy: 14-16

More About American Bulldog Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). My name is Darwin. I am an extremely GENTLE, sensitive, and personable 4 year old Staffordshire Terrier/Pit Bull mix. I weigh about 65lbs, but I'm essentially just an oversized lap dog (no, really- I am). What you need to know about me: I need a stable, structured, and calm home. I am very stressed out whenever I go outside, and prefer to stay home then go on walks or out into public places. The perfect situation for me would be a house with a fenced in yard or patio where I can easily do my business. Just something simple! I am fearful and insecure around other dogs, but I have slowly made a couple furry friends, including another dog that I am fostered with currently. An owner who is experienced with special needs dogs like me would be best since you understand the need to be patient, and to give me lots of encouragement and leadership. I am always curious about what you are doing- so if you hear someone tip-toeing behind you, that would be me! I know basic commands, and I am housetrained- I do not like to be crated, but because I'm such a good boy, my foster mom trusts me alone while she's at work all day. I also like to sing when I get excited, which is mostly whenever I see you! I am neutered, microchipped and up to date on all of my shots. If you are interested in meeting me, please contact my foster mom Rachel​ at info@hollywooftotherescue.org

      Posted Breed: Weimaraner / American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Meet Diesel! A BEAUTIFUL, All American boy, born on the 4th of July! Diesel is all dog, a goofball, and full of fun. He’s been through a complete board and train program and knows SIT, STAY, COME, PLACE (where he can stays until given a release word), and knows how to WALK GREAT on LEASH. He's also CRATE TRAINED. Diesel loves to go on walks and to do things. He’d be great in a home who is looking for a dog who wants to get out and about. He’s even OFF LEASH TRAINED. Diesel LOVES to PLAY FETCH, go on CAR RIDES, and to hang with his humans. Poor Diesel has had a rocky past. Diesel lost his home because his human was going to die. We helped him get adopted, but the adopters later found that they are more suited to smaller dogs and feel that a better home for Diesel would make him happiest. Diesel has lived with dogs, but because he is a big boy, we are looking to place him in a home with medium to large dog(s), or if he’s an only dog, that’s ok too, but no cats! For Diesel, a cat is a play toy and a kitty wouldn’t appreciate his dog play. Diesel has attended many group play sessions with other trained dogs off leash in his training program. If you are ready for a great, big, handsome boy to take a road trip with or hit the town with, Diesel will be your buddy. Please contact us if you are interested in meeting Diesel!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Tripod Tinker Bell was rescued by a Good Samaritan in June 2015 from a very bad situation. She was starved and emaciated at that time, and eventually had to have her back left leg amputated due to severe neglect by her previous owner. Ms. Tinker Bell does not see herself as a handicapped furry however, as she still gets around perfectly fine. In fact, being a very happy tripod has actually gotten her extra love and attention by everyone she meets which she always enjoys! Tinker Bell is a sunny and cheery girl who's smile is contagious. Tinker Bell is approx. 3 years old with beautiful green eyes, has 1 amputated leg, spayed, current on vaccinations, not microchipped, 50 pounds, housetrained and crate trained. She adores people and kids but should be the only dog and best around older kids. She is healthy as a bug, loves car rides and walks, and to play with squeaky toys. Tinker Bell is a jumper...yes, even as a tripod!... so an 8' fence is a requirement but doesn't have any bad habits like barking, chewing or digging. Any chance she gets, she'll want to snuggle up to you and give tons of affection and kisses. If you think Tinker Bell will be a perfect fit within your family and would like to meet her in person, or have any other questions about her, please contact Mitzy at mitzy@4liferescue.org. Thank you.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Border Collie / Mixed (short coat). ZELDA is our magical, little tinker bell, just full of flickers of cuteness! She can steel the heart of a crowd with her radiant joy. Our Zelda has been through a TRAINING PROGRAM where she's certainly learned some skills in obedience. Playing ball is a favorite past time for her, and we thinks she would be AMAZING with someone who would like to do agility work with her! She'll be great in an active home that will appreciate a FUN LOVING dog and someone who will understand her corky ways! She's VERY LOYAL, loves to CUDDLE, is GOOD with CHILDREN, and enjoys being by your side. That's what she really loves...people. Zelda needs a home where she will be loved 4Life. This spunky girl is waiting for that special someone she can count on. As with many rescue dogs, she hasn't had the solid past she needs, so she's hoping she'll get a chance to share her zest for life and adventure with someone who just "gets her"! It's certainly about time for our girl. If you feel you might be Zelda's human, please contact us. Zelda's waiting...

Meet Gonzo, a beautiful and smart 2 year-old American Bulldog mix who was rescued from the San Pedro Shelter where he was a staff favorite. This boy is super friendly and full of life! He's a big puppy, but knows his basic commands and is even crate trained. He loves to play ball and tug-o-war, but above all he is an EXCELLENT cuddle bunny! Although a young dog, he likes his mellow moments, but loves his active ones even more. He would make a great dog for someone who is active and needs a buddy to take along on adventures....just be sure he gets his sunscreen on him first! He's very good on leash and does not like to leave your side, so is also a great protector. We can't say enough good things about this beautiful boy! He will be a wonderful addition to a loving, active and experienced dog owner...could that be you??

      Breed: Boxer-Chinese Shar-Pei Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Shar Pei / Mixed (short coat). **COURTESY POST** Max is a male 8mo old Boxer/Shar Pei puppy that is in need of re-homing. The current owner has health issues that are complicating her ability to care for him as needed. He is approximately 70lbs and as a result, would probably do best in a home with older children/adults. Although Max has exhibited some separation anxiety issues when left alone, with appropriate training, those can be managed. Max has never been around cats, so we do not know how he would do. He is a sweet and loving boy, who wants to please his owner. He has all of his shots, but is not neutered; all vet records are available. For inquiries about Max or if you are interested in fostering or adopting, please contact Jenni at 949-357-5466 or via email at jennilstephenson@gmail.com.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). **COURTESY POST** Loki is looking for his forever home. He is an Australian Shepherd mix, approximately 10 years old, and weighs approximately 85 lbs. He is an active dog, loves to run, and fetch balls. He loves to go for walks, and gets excited to go; once he settles down from being excited to walk, he does well on his leash. He knows basic commands such as sit, down, eat, cookie, potty and "get it"; stay needs work. Loki's general temperament suggests he may do ok with children even though he has had not been exposed to them. He's a little shy at first, but he is a people pleaser and loves attention. He has not had a lot of socializing with other dogs, but would likely do well with some TLC. Like many dogs, he does not do well with loud noises (such as fireworks and thunder) and his anxiety level spikes. He prefers to be with his humans instead of being alone. Loki has spent much of his time outside, and appears to be housebroken (per his currently family, as he likes to spend much of his time outside). Loki is located in the Southern California area. Please send a message to Terri at dectlc@gte.net if you would like to meet him!

Despite that, I am very loving and always interested in what my mom is up to! I love to make sure things are in order around the house and hunt pesky mice and rats. My owner jokes that I am a circus dog because I can do a trick of jumping very high in one place when I'm excited!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). This gorgeous blonde bombshell is desperately in need a of a new home where she will be loved and cherished for the amazing girl that she is! Roxy is about 4 years old, very well trained and well mannered. She is obedient and loyal to her humans. She loves everyone she meets, and she even knows not to jump up on them. This is the perfect family dog - very low maintenance and easy-going. She is great with kids, is playful, and she loves her toys! She loves to go on walks and car rides with her family. She just wants to finally find a home that will be able to love her and play with her forever! She is completed house trained and has never needed to be crated. Roxy has had it pretty rough her entire life. Her original owner was a homeless man who cold not care for her. Another family adopted her, but then they had to move and could not bring Roxy with them. So Roxy was adopted by a 3rd family - only to find out that one of the other resident dogs in the house was not very fond of her. This caused a few scuffles between the dogs and now, for Roxy's own safety, she has to be kept separately. She needs a safe home as soon as possible that can give her the love and attention she deserves. We believe she would do fine in a home with other dogs given a proper introductions, and she does very well meeting other dogs. She does like to be an alpha-dog. She has not been cat tested, but her previous owners said she should not be around cats. Please contact Allison Maya for questions and adoption inquiries at allisonmaya@yahoo.com or 714-235-2857
