The count down is on!

Posted: April 22nd, 2012

Hey everyone we are so excited to have our spring event! We can’t wait to see our friends and make lots of new ones. Our spring egg hunt is Saturday April 28th at the Quakertown Memorial Park on Mill Rd. If you want your dog to participate in the egg hunt there is a ten dollar registration fee. There will be treats in the eggs and tickets to win prizes. We have invited a d.j. to come and play some fun music. There will be great food, a photographer to take pictures of your dogs, local vendors with great dog supplies, face painting, a groomer to tattoo the dogs, a veterinarian will be available to answer any questions, a dog trainer will also be there to offer some helpful tips. We are looking forward to lots of fun with our furry friends and we hope to raise money for our dogs who can’t be there because they are sick, in boarding or waiting for us to take them from shelters. We dedicate this day to all the dogs that we are trying to help and we thank you for all of the support. Without our friends we would not exist. We look forward to April 28th and meeting new people and their dogs! Thanks, Trish

“I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.”

We Need Foster Homes:

Fostering a dog for a rescue group requires commitment. Foster families must be willing to invest time, attention, TLC and offer a safe environment for a dog who is in need. Aside from the day-to-day schedule of feeding, exercise and grooming, some additional responsibilities may be required. Placing a dog in a foster home allows us to assess the dog’s personality and determine the type of permanent home we should be looking at for that particular dog. The foster parent provides love, attention, some basic training (which we help with), and a regular report on how the dog is doing. We are always in need of foster homes because the bottom line is the more foster homes we have available, the more dogs we can help.” American Bulldog Rescue provides food (if needed), supplies and take care of all the medical needs and veterinary costs. You just need to give it a try and you will be hooked! It’s the most rewarding experience to know that you helped a homeless dog find a fantastic family!


Sunny is blind but you would never guess it if you met him!

Pennsylvania: Super Duper Sunny sure is Special! Not only is he nice to everything from chickens to giant elephants (kidding…
just big pigs) but he is the MOST TRUSTING guy…”you see” Super Sunny is blind and can’t see at all. But Sunny Bunny (one of his nick-names) will follow your voice, he will wait for direction, he is so smart. He understands “wait, stay, here, come, up and down”. Sunny is a 100 pound Treasure!!! He has an appt. with the doggie eye specialist on 4-21-12 so we can have a better idea of what happened to Sunny’s eyesight. 

Ruby is going to make her new family’s heart fill with so much love, friendship and happiness. She deserves nothing less. She promises to make you smile and laugh every single day. She has so much personality.

FL: Princess Ruby is such a girly girl and loves attention. She loves to give you her right paw, just because. Ruby loves to get her babies and toys and bring them to your lap to play. She will trot daintily to get them and then bounce, got it and very daintily will bring it back t you. Ruby is especially fond of fluffy stuffed animals. She will baby and nuzzle, but sadly this will lead too the demise of the toy as she continues to destroy it, so supervise please. She loves her daily walks and long car rides where she will sit in the seat like a little human just looking out the window. This is very, very important: Please keep all undergarment and socks out of Ruby’s reach. Ruby is especially fond of them and will completely devour. This has happened in the past and unfortunately, one day, she will end up needing obstruction surgery or will die. Unfortunately, she really does think she’s ‘royalty’ so she gets very jealous if other dogs tease her with ‘her toys’. She prefers to be the only dog in the house as she just wants all the love she can get and I love giving it to her. She’s the most huggable and kissable little girl. She’ll climb in bed with you if you let her. She’s not a jumper, so she’ll stand patiently at the end of your bed and wait until you can help her up.
Maryland: Gracie is House broken, crate trained, gentle with small children, needs work on a leash, recovering from HW’s, no cats, fine with other dogs Gracie’s story: I knew about this purebred American Bulldog from staff, and they said the usual “she’s sweet”. Well, you can take that info for a grain of salt- they’re almost ALL sweet.. but I went down to pick up a dog Friday and met this girl in person and she is a full-out HEARTBREAKER. Clearly bred for puppies, this girl is as personable as they get. She was trying to climb up in the kennel attendant’s lap while he was on the phone. A big couch potato. Loves to give amazing kisses. Tested a-ok with males and females on leash. SHE IS LIVING AT A DOGGY DAY CARE AND HAS A TON OF K9 PALS!
Pennsylvania: What a character! Bolo will keep you smiling! He is so happy and extra friendly, he is not phased by other animals and although he was once living on a chain, was attacked by another dog and spent some nights shivering with temps in the teens he holds no grudge. He meets other animals like a gentleman, we have funny piggy and chicken photos to prove that he an angel! He is 100% house trained!
Pennsylvania: Kramer is a gem, he is 10 months old and is the sweetest boy ever.He is American Bulldog/ Golden Retriever. He loves other dogs, kids and is very laid back, just loves belly rubs and his ears rubbed. He is looking for a home with another young dog to play with. He does not have the greatest hips, he has been x-rayed and is in no pain at all. In the meantime we will enjoy having him with us and giving him all the love he deserves.
Pennsylvania: Kano is a playful Old English puppy about 9-10 months old and he needs a
foster home. He is happy and playful and loves other dogs.
FL: Betty is a big, beautiful, speckled puppy who is evolving into a well-rounded young lady. She is approximately 7 mos. old and like many people who are interesting and captivating, Betty had a rocky start. She was abandoned outside of an asphalt company in Miami and was found covered in oil with two other older dogs – a male and female – who seemed to be friends. Some wonderful, dog-loving people in Miami took them in and bathed them, and Betty found a home in foster. In her foster home she is a sweet, innocent girl who takes gulps from the cup of life. She loves other dogs and enjoys playing with the 5-year-old male Am. pit bull and 5-year-old female AB in her foster home. Both seem tickled by her puppy antics, and she keeps them on their toes. She’s learning some basic commands and house manners and is waiting patiently for her dream home. She’s housebroken and walks well on a leash. She’s got big paws and a wonderful spirit. Betty deserves someone who is going to treat her well. She would probably be happiest to go to a home with another dog. She’d be happy to teach your old dog some new tricks. 😉 She’s teething and likes beef knuckles, Nylabones and bunny slippers with ears (be warned… hahaha).


Pennsylvania: Duchess now named Ducky (because she is) is a beautiful 4 year old female who is house trained, lived with other dogs and kids. Her family has no time at all for her and her housemate Debo. Duchess loves her family. she is so loyal and as you can see from the look in her face, she lives to please. They are living in crates most of their lives. They are spending over 20 hours a day there. The family can not afford to keep them any longer.
Pennsylvania: Peggy is AWESOME!! She is past all of her bad puppy habits but still young and playful! Her foster family loves her and have taught her so many things. She is between 3-4 years old and is house trained.
Florida: Jefferson is PERFECT with dogs, cats, PERFECT in the house and all this after coming from a living HELL. He was saved at the last second from euthanasia in a Louisiana shelter. Emaciated and battling against all of the emotional damage this level of longstanding abuse can cause. Some, like Jefferson, instead completely shut down as their way to cope. We know for certain that Jefferson’s case was one of the very worst. As his wounds slowly healed, we (Jefferson and a huge crew of dedicated staff) worked very hard with an incredible trainer to help Jefferson reintegrate or maybe even just integrate for the first time, into what would be his new life. He would stand emotionless as you pet, touched, talked to him. I’m very happy to say that this is no longer the case…at ALL!!! He likes to be in the company of other dogs, walks spectacularly on lead, has been a wonderful house guest at his fabulous foster home- he has made us so very proud! . If you think you are worthy of this incredible, beautiful, majestic, kind, gentle, smooshy, drooly love muffin please send in an application. Jeff has fought so very hard, now he just needs his “happy tail”! Jefferson and the kids playing videoThe top photo is a after photo. After Jefferson gained 25 pounds!
Pennsylvania: SILLA is ready or her new home. She is fantastic, not perfect but sweet, and as good as they come. SILLA is about 1 1/2 to 2 years old and just as pretty as she is sweet. She would be great with a older (3 – up), calm male dog and older children. Make an appointment to meet this sweetheart. She has Overcome her horrible beginnings thanks to her wonderful professional training supplied by: BLITZ PET PROFESSIONALS, located in BUCKS COUNTY PA. SILLA is doing great as you can see by her pictures, she has gone through intense training in Neutrilization, Socialization, & Desensitization training. WE FEEL SHE WOULD DO BEST IF SHE IS ADOPTED TO A HOME WITH A NEUTERED MALE CALM DOG SINCE SHE JUST LOVES THE COMPANIONSHIP OF A FRIEND. If interested in her and the wait, (if approved you can visit her)

New Arrivals:

Maryland: Pretty Buttercup is calm and relaxed. She loves car rides, hugs and tummy rubs. Buttercup came to us from a high kill shelter. They picked her up off the street on a cold and rainy morning. We don’t know how such a sweet girl ended up alone. It doesn’t matter now, Buttercup is safe with us and we will find her the perfect family.

She sits by your side watching what you watch, maybe
the bird, or the tress blowing from the wind… nothing
all all is better in this whole wide world than the time she has with you… and you can see how happy she is
to be at your side and most of all to be loved.Her eyes smile the entire time with pride to be your dog and to be loved. Tess is located in Temple, TX.
Texas: Tess came to rescue like so many of our dogs. She was picked up by animal control and no one came to claim her. She had about a 15% chance of rescue or re-claim. Lucky for us she is in that 15%. Tess is one of the sweetest dogs ever. Tess is happy to just be part of a family. She is what I call a very easy keeper. She crates well, never complains about anything. She seems to get along well with male or females and totally thinks it is the GREATEST thing on earth to have her head rubbed. You see I don’t think Tess has ever had a home with love before. Even though I am her foster home, Tess feels loved. She knows she is going to be fed… loved on and given a warm dry place to sleep that is safe.Tess came in with bones showing and some pressure sores on her hind area. She now has a full beautiful coat. She has one of the most pleasant personalities you could ever ask for. She runs with her tail straight up in the air with pride to be a loved dog….the twinkle in her eyes that was once lost is back.Tess is a natural love! She gives all she has to you and with that she can sit on the patio with no words at all between you or her…
PA: Paulie Palmetto is such a love! He gets along perfectly with both dogs in his foster home, he is house trained, and he loves to play outside. You couldn’t ask for a sweeter dog. You’ll be sure to fall in love immediately:)

Happy Tails:

Florida: Sweet Tater is a big goofball. He is a lover boy and all he wants is attention. That’s not surprising for this very loving breed. They love their people! He is still patiently waiting for his forever home. Tater is located in Sebring, FL. Please fill out an adoption application if you’re interested in making Tater a permanent member of your family.
Pennsylvania: 14 month old Jacob needs a foster home. He is living with children and is house trained.
Pennsylvania: aka Miss Wonderful is probably as close to a perfect Lady as you get. She is 100% house trained, good with other dogs and cats. She is perfect on a leash, a laid back 6 year old who will not give you an ounce of trouble but will fill your heart with love! She will need drops in her eyes 2-3 tines a day but she will sit there and wait for you to put them in like a lady! Help us give this girl the happy ending she deserves! She is located in Bucks County, PA.
Pennsylvania: Smoke is a happy girl who is a joy to be around! She is 6 months old and loves other dogs big and small. She is doing great in her foster home and learning lots of good stuff.
