    Default Guster~~Available English Bulldog for Adoption in Decatur, Illinois

    My name is Guster (or “Gus” for short), and I am a very handsome 8 month old beautiful bulldog. I can hardly wait to tell you more about myself!

    First, let me start by saying that LIFE IS GOOD! I am the happiest boy you will ever meet. I’ve never met a person or dog that I don’t think should be my best friend, and I am the most happy-go-lucky guy on earth! I embrace everything with reckless abandon.

    Now let me tell you a little bit about my past. I came from a breeder that was going to do away with me because I have a front leg problem that I was born with, which apparently made her unable to sell me. What, no one wants an adorable guy with really bowed front legs? Hmph. Personally, I don’t see this leg thing as a problem at all! We’ll talk more about that in a moment. Anyway, I was saved by a good Samaritan that felt I deserved to live! I couldn’t have agreed with her more! She couldn’t keep me herself, although she really loved me, so that’s when I came to IEBR. And boy do I love it here!!!

    So now to discuss my leg “issue” in a little more detail… At first, the orthopedic surgeon thought I would soon be unable to walk and get around as I got bigger and gained weight. However, much to his surprise, I am still able to keep up with my foster siblings and I am as active as any bulldog ever! My walking hasn’t even gotten worse as I’ve gotten a bit bigger and the x-rays don’t show deterioration of the condition like the doctor anticipated they would. So… as of now, I don’t even need surgery at all!!! I’m so excited about that, because I don’t think I could sit still for 5 minutes, let alone weeks during my recovery. I’m a real go-getter! Sure, I suppose I do walk a little funny, but my foster mom and dad think it’s endearing and adorable. I must say that I agree with them! I am pretty darn endearing AND adorable!

    So just because I’m in the clear as far as the need for surgery goes right now doesn’t mean I won’t ever need the surgery. I still might decline to the point of needing this major orthopedic repair of my legs, which will likely cost $4000-5000. I know that’s a lot of money, so if you want to adopt me you have to REALLY love me and be willing and ready to spend that kind of money. If I need the surgery, it must be done. I know it’s asking a lot, but I promise you I am worth it. And it’s possible I won’t ever need the surgery, but you must be prepared in case I do.

    I am neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on all my shots. Basically, I’m ready to roll! I do need, however, a home with very few or no steps to climb on a regular basis. I would also love a home with another dog to play with. I am VERY, VERY SOCIAL and LOVE to play. I would be happiest with a friend. I also adore kids, and humans in general. One other thing you should know is that I need to be kept on the trim side, which is unfortunate for me since I love to eat as much as anyone. However, it will help my mobility if I am thin and fit.

    I am a really sweet boy that also loves to cuddle. I have big ears that my foster parents say are really cute, and the quirkiest tail that is constantly moving because I’m constantly happy. I am pretty much housetrained, but still have an occasional accident. It’s usually because my foster parents forget to let me out right after I get done eating or playing hard with my brother. Not to point fingers, but it’s usually their fault, not mine. Oh, and I should also tell you that I LOVE FOOD. I am a little pig, according to my foster mom. She has to watch me or I will push my foster siblings out of the way of their own food bowl and eat it in a heartbeat. I’m a growing boy, what can I say?! Plus I try to eat anything and everything laying on the ground, so you have to watch me closely. I’m a bit mischievous, but at least I’m super cute while I’m naughty… I’m a puppy, what can I say?!
