English Bull Terrier Rescue of New York and New Jersey, Inc. P.O. Box 784 Medford, NJ 08055
A group of dedicated volunteers committed to finding homes for abandoned, neglected or otherwise homeless English Bull Terriers. We function as a liaison, placing rescue bull terrier's and new family's together. We have no physical location. We do not kennel any of our dogs, and we work with area shelters to spay and neuter to keep our costs down.
Happy New Year, we hope 2012 is another year of successful adoptions. We want to thank all adopters, supporters and get these bull terriers homes. The New Year does bring bills,website renewal, po box, and our first rescue of the year, BABY BOY BLEU. He is a five month old puppy with a possible broken leg. We need help to get the veterinary care he needs immediately. You can use pay pal to [email protected]-or, we can provide the veterinarians phone number. We strive to help all bull terriers, and have no funding or club support.
Are you ready to welcome a bull terrier into your life? If so, please fill out our Adoption Application by clicking HERE Remember, we often have dogs available that might not be listed here yet. But to be considered, you MUST complete an adoption application. We need to know about your household, your other pets, your lifestyle, in order to match you up with the right bull terrier. We'd love to be able to personally email or chat with everyone but that's not always possible. We regret that without an application, we will be unable to give you more information about any of our dogs. Your information is kept confidential; however, we do work with other rescue groups and they may have an appropriate companion. In those cases, we would seek your permission to forward your application.• Our adoption fee is in the range of $300-which barely cover's what it actually costs to rehabilitate a rescue dog. Keep in mind these dogs can come in horrible condition.We have no support other than your donation's . Your donations made are a donation, if the dog you select is not a match with your household we wll find another dog better suited for you•
Before you surrender your dog, please e-mail Laura at [email protected] for problem solving and questions, she is a great mentor with many years of experience.

If you decide to purchase a bull terrier puppy instead of adopting a rescue, consider a rescue bull terrier first. The New York area is overridden with unskilled breeders looking to make a quick profit. We know,we see many of these ill, unwanted or damaged dogs end up in Rescue...and those are the lucky ones. We can suggest some reputable breeders in your area, we can help you look over your contract paperwork, we can advise what questions to ask, what health tests to require, etc. A bull terrier can cost $800 to $2000. For that amount of money, you should get certain health guarantees; a promise in writing that the breeder will take back the puppy if it has any serious health problems; paperwork from the AKC at www.akc.org the only legitimate bull terrier registry here in the U.S. (if you have questions about the validity of foreign registries, ask us....don't take your breeder's word for it!); and continued support and advice from your breeder. Bad breeding can result in some horrible problems bull terriers can be prone to: behavioral issues like Sudden Rage Syndrome, Resource Guarding and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders and health problems like deafness, heart and kidney disease, and chronic skin allergies.
We look forward to finding your perfect lifetime bully companion.
