If you are looking to add a sweet bulldog to your family, why not try to find a rescue dog instead of a new puppy? Rescued dogs are vaccinated, spayed or neutered and already house trained, which is a major benefit in my book. The following three organizations provide bulldog rescue services nationally and can help you get started in your quest for a bulldog.
Adopt a Pet
Sponsored by Purina, Adopt a Pet offers searchable pet listings from local shelters based on the location you enter. You can search for gender and age as well, and have the option to save your search to your email address.
Domino’s Bulldogs lists several rescue groups who specialize in bulldogs, and allows owners to list their own dogs, so long as the dog is spayed or neutered.
The Bulldog Club of America Rescue Network
The Bulldog Club of America Rescue Network is a network of volunteers, all dedicated to saving bulldogs in need of rescue. The website offers good information on bulldogs, including their personality traits and what to expect when you adopt. You can browse available dogs and read all of the adoption policies.
Adding a bulldog to your family can be a satisfying choice, and even better when you are able to provide a home for a dog who has ended up in a rescue situation.
