Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

    Meet my foster boy Gucci. He's been with me and my family since he was 7 months old. It was supposed to be a temporary situation, however his original owners left and moved to Florida...without him. He's a big softie and I call him my 'Gucci-man'. He loves to be petted. Human contact is a MUST! He likes to run and rough house with my other dog as well. He's absolutely mischievous and adorable at the same time. He's 68 lbs of pure love. I'd keep him forever if I could.

Pit Bull    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Onyx is a 5 year old, chocolate colored pit bull. She has white markings on her chest and paws. She came to me as an emergency placement from a relative instead of being placed in a shelter, however due to having my own dogs, I feel it would be best to have Onyx have a home of her own where she can have undivided attention. Onyx would do well being the only dog in the home as well as living with persons over 10 years old. She is playful and energetic. She enjoys going for rides, playing in the yard, sleeping in the bed with you and in general spending time with her humans. Onyx has been spayed within the last year. She was taken from a ... (Read More)house that had 2 other pits along with her and Onyx was used for breeding purposes. Onyx can be wary when meeting people and will posture, however once she sniffs around she wants nothing more than her back scratched and snacks people sneak her. Please contact me with any questions.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Marley is a very sensitive, sweet, yet nervous, seven-year-old, 63-pound, female Pit Bull Terrier/Beagle-Mix looking for a loving guardian. Marley was rescued as an eight-month-old puppy when her human was a sophomore in college. She was skin and bones, and very skittish at the time. She was then raised with two Pomeranians and a Yorkie, so she is good with other dogs of all shapes and sizes after initial introduction. She has also lived with cats in the past. She is a smart dog, but very nervous and sensitive at first so she needs time to warm up. So she is looking for a very patient human to take her under their wing. Marley has been ... (Read More)trained to stay off furniture except her own dog bed. She knows the command sit and down, and is protective of her home and family. She is perfectly housebroken and crate-trained. Sadly, her human recently married and his wife is allergic to Marley so she needs to find a new loving home. When you first meet Marley, she will probably bark, but she is not aggressive, just fearful. Marley is very healthy, de-wormed, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, and heartworm-tested. She did have knee surgery a few years ago and sometimes struggles with stairs. If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting her, please contact Linda at lindagarard@gmail.com or 847-441-9316. Her adoption fee of $75 benefits rescued pets. She is currently living in Northfield, Illinois. (Less)

    Bo is a lovable and cuddly 3 year old blue pit bull male who loves to play tug of war and fetch after his orange toy (picture). He was in a home that could not afford him anymore and he is staying with us until he can find a more permanent home. He is a people dog, and often times I find him as my shadow. He is house trained and knows commands, but is stubborn in nature so he doesn't also like to sit when he's asked to. He needs a home with someone who wants to play with him and take him on walks.

    He's a male pit mix. Had him for 3 years (since he was a puppy) and he is a great dog. Due to our new living arrangements, we can no longer keep him. (We had to move suddenly due to me losing my job and had to move closer to my family for support.) We don't have a fenced in yard for him to roam around anymore. It really pains us to have to get rid of him. His name is Whiskey. He doesn't like other male dogs but loves females and most humans (unless you scare him) He's a very sweet boy. Been calling shelters to take him to but no one can, our only other option is a kill shelter but I don't want to do this. He only has a 50% chance of getting ... (Read More)adopted there and if he doesn't they will put him down after 5 days. He will come with a collar and leash and a large igloo doghouse.

Needs to be gone asap or we'll be forced to take him to a shelter. He needs a good loving home. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Chelsea is a beautiful, loving and very sweet, 35-pound, five-year-old, female, pit bull terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. She is an extremely happy girl whose tail is always wagging. She adores being pet and is full of loving kisses. She is housebroken and quietly crate-trained; Chelsea has an auto poop and pee as soon as she gets in the yard '| something all dog parents appreciate - especially in the winter! She has been going through training since she's been rescued and she knows the command sit, and takes treats nicely from your fingers. She's extremely responsive to people, protective and very treat-motivated. However, ... (Read More)she'd do best in a home as the one and only dog. She is doing well with a cat in her current foster home. Rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control, Chelsea had been found living alone in an abandoned house on the West side of Chicago in the bitter cold of winter. Thanks to Realtors to the Rescue, she was scooped up to safety. The poor girl was scarred, emaciated, full of worms, and had clearly been used for breeding. Chelsea is a funny dog in both personality and in physique. Her limbs and joints are malformed so she has a bow-legged bulldog stance on a tiny pit bull-like body. But Chelsea is anything but immobile. She is energetic and wiggly and loves galloping in a fenced in yard. Last Thanksgiving, Chelsea suffered a slipped disc in her lower spine. After a round of steroids, pain meds and muscle relaxers, Chelsea bounced back nicely. She is now healthy, spayed, de-wormed, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccines, and heartworm-tested. To meet and possibly adopt her, please contact Suzy at sthomas4419@gmail.com or 312-543-3884. Her adoption fee of $75 benefits rescued pets. She is being fostered in Addison, Illinois. Professional training and assistance with future medical needs will be included with her adoption. To help Realtors to the Rescue support Chelsea's $2,500 training and medical care fund by visiting http://www.gofundme.com/mhiv40 This will help pay off her previous and future medical bills and help her adopter pay for additional training and medical care.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-08-00020Gemma (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This is our foster, Gemma. She is black with some white patches, and she is 50lbs and approximately 1.5 years old. Gemma came to us Saturday, May 2nd, as an independent foster. Gemma's owner's planned to release her into the country, unspayed and lonely, where she would have been sentenced to death. I decided to take her in temporarily to give her a better chance. She is now spayed, and she has also received her rabies vaccination. Gemma is a really good girl and would benefit from being the only pet in the house, or a house with only one other calm dog, so that she can get a lot of quality attention. Before we got her, Gemma was left caged ... (Read More)or in a kennel for most of her life, so a loving and active family would be ideal for her. She loves children. ABSOLUTELY NO CATS! She hates them. As part of our foster, she has been introduced to both cats and dogs. She has grown tolerant of the dogs and doesn't show them any signs of aggression, but cats are an entirely different story. She previously lived with doggy friends, but would need to meet the potential adopter's other dog before an adoption could go through, and may require a slow socialization process within her adopters home. I will not adopt her to anyone with cats or anyone who has more than one dog already, as I want to ensure she is going to a loving furrever home. Gemma's adoption fee is $100 and includes this beautiful spayed 50lb pittie, her indoor crate, paperwork to verify sterilization, and her rabies vaccination tag/paperwork. I am starting to fall in love with this goofy girl, and I know she will win over your hearts as well if you open your home to her. Gemma is located in the Chicago suburbs, and I would prefer to keep her local because I want to follow up with her to ensure the placement is correct and beneficial to her in the long term. If you have any questions about her, feel free to ask. Thanks! 'Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.' (Less)

    Max is a sweet, snugly and chill, four-year-old, 46-pound, male black and white Pit Bull Terrier/Lab-mix looking for a loving guardian. Max's best friend in his foster home is a nine-year-old boy whose bed he shares each night. He's an amazing and affectionate dog who is full of tail wags and wiggles. He thinks he's a lap dog. Max is well-trained and knows the commands sit, down and paw. Max is perfectly housebroken and crate trained. His foster family crates him when he is not supervised as he still likes to chew on items like socks and underware. He has no anxiety issues; he can deal with fireworks, revving motorcycles, and other loud ... (Read More)noises. But, he does have a strong prey drive so he needs a home without cats or other small animals. While he gets along with other dogs for the most part, he does resource guard items from other dogs (bones, toys, or food). So, ideally he would be best as the one and only pet in the home. Max is being fostered in Chicago's Portage Park neighborhood. Max is extremely healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of the Making a Difference Rescue.

Beautiful 55 pound, happy, girl about 2 to 3 years old. She is current on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. She has been waiting a long time to be a part of a family, since she looks like so many other dogs and has a unique personality. She is crate trained and very quiet. She had major anxiety about being crated when we first rescued her and will need an understanding home to be adopted since change is hard on her. She is such an easy dog, we ... (Read More)leave her loose on the farm several times a day. She can be bossy with some dogs, prefers male dogs since it was a male puppy who taught her how to play with other dogs. Once she understood he wasn't trying to eat her. Poor girl laid on the ground curled up in a ball for 2 weeks with a 4 month old pup laying, pouncing and chewing on her trying very hard to get her to play with him before she tried to move. They then had the very best time rough housing and racing all over the place! He has been adopted and she now loves a tiny 11 pound male terrier we have but is bossy with some of the female dogs. She is very happy to see my grandchildren but sometimes isn't sure about strangers until she knows them. She really doesn't know any commands, other then 'crate' and comes when called great off lead but would love someone who would like to teach her some fun tricks. She will follow along if you horse back ride and is really great about staying with the person she loves. Vet's phone number you use currently or in the past is required to adopt for a reference.

    Haley is an awesome girl that loves people. She just wants to be the one and only pet in your life. She has lots of love to give and deserves the very best in life. She was saved from a kill shelter in KY just minutes before they were going to euthanize her for space. Please help us show Haley what a loving family is and a loving, warm home. Would do best with a fenced yard as she is strong on a leash - or needs leash training.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Percy. I am a Presa Canario/ Pit mix. I am about a year old and weigh 60lbs. I was taken in to an open access municipal animal control. I was pretty banged up. Luckily some volunteers at the shelter took the time to notice me. I was emaciated, and I had two large nasty burns on my hips, badly cropped ears with dried blood and fly bites all over. They looked past my appearance and saw me for the good doggie that I am. I am very affectionate and I like to rest my head on your leg. I do like to lean on you if you would let me. I have a lot of puppy energy but I am learning to walk better on leash. I love to play fetch and was given ... (Read More)the opportunity join playgroup with other dogs. I respond well to hand signals and will look to you for instruction. I am house broken and crate trained. I also love kids, but my foster mommy thinks that I would do better with kids older than 10 years old because my excitement will knock down little ones. An angel sent me to Making a Difference Rescue. Will you watch over me too? Percy is currently fostered in Chicago, IL. We will only consider applications within 30 miles of Chicago, IL. Please remember we will not adopt out of state because a home visit is a requirement. We require an at home evaluation and screening prior to adoption. We do this to ensure that our animals will go to safe forever homes. We ask that you please call and inquire whether we are able to travel to your area. Percy is located in Chicago. He is adoptable within a 30 mile radius. If you are interested in providing Percyy a forever home, please fill out our adoption survey http://makingadifferencerescue.com/adoption-survey/ This will expedite your inquiry as we are not able to return phone calls or emails during our own non volunteer working hours.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Max. He may be the most silly and affectionate dog that we've ever met. He's a petite little guy. He weighs 50 lbs. and is around 2-3 years old. If you're a gardener, you can be sure that your yard will never be infested with feral cats, squirrels or rabbits. He loves to play in the mud...but never fear, he's figured out how to jump into the tub on his own free will to have his feet and muzzle cleaned. If you have kids...he will easily fit in. He's a great disciplinarian. He will teach your kids to pick up after themselves quickly if they cherish their balls, legos, socks and underwear. No mouthiness from this one...just too many ... (Read More)slobbery kisses. He loves to sleep in and insists on spooning you in bed. He's mastered the art of playing dead and will not budge from his spot until you physically move him. He is quite the charmer and fancies himself a lap dog. Just like a baby, he will wrap his arms around your neck and schnooze on your shoulder. Max also loves to go running with his person and will keep up with speed and match strides for slow down periods. He does very well meeting strangers. He has no anxiety, noise or separation issues. He's very low maintenance. He's house broken, neutered, HW negative and up to date on vaccinations and preventatives. He must be crated for his safety when left at home. He can not be in a home with cats or small rodents. He has an extremely high prey drive and the ability to jump over low gates and fences. Unless his forever home is in a condo setting where he will be walked daily, he will require a home that has a 6ft high privacy fence and he can never be left outside unattended. We have discovered that he will resource guard bricks and rocks. Although he can be easily distracted from these items through positive reinforcement, he will require a dog savvy person who is willing and able to work with this behavior. He can not have any bones. Max is located in Chicago. We ask that inquiries be within 30 miles of Chicago. Please remember we can not adopt out of state because a home visit is a requirement.We require an at home evaluation and screening prior to adoption. We do this to ensure that our animals will go to safe forever homes.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    Thunder is a mellow and sweet, six-year-old, 60-pound, male, glossy black and white Lab/Pit-mix looking for a loving guardian. Thunder was rescued from the pound in Gary, Indiana. He had a bump on his head, and an injury to one of his rear legs. It's guessed that he had been hit by a car. Thunder can't see that well; he has 15% vision in one eye and 6% vision in the other. Since he's almost blind, it's not surprising that he is easily startled by someone sneaking up on him. But amazingly, he still loves to play fetch. He will listen for the ball to bounce and go in that direction. He's also quite the lap dog and loves to cuddle. Thunder ... (Read More)is living in a foster home where he has proven great with dogs of all sizes as well as cats. He is not crazy about overly playful dogs. But, he is great with a dominant male German Shepherd that typically does not like other males, but he accepts Thunder into his pack. Because of his vision problems, Thunder sometimes bumps into other dogs or lands on them if he jumps down off of a bed or couch. Most dogs are understanding of his clumsiness, but some dogs may not be. He is great with people of all ages including children, however toys on the floor are confusing to him as he memorizes his environment so he can get around. When he goes to a new foster home, he immediately tries to figure out the path to the door and has been housebroken wherever he goes when taken out regularly. He is also crate-trained. He is great on leash, at the vet and in the car. He is full of tail wags and kisses for the people he loves. He knows the command sit and does so automatically when he smells a treat or hears the crinkle of a treat bag. He is food-motivated and takes treats gently from your fingers. He's looking for a quiet home where someone can keep him on a solid routine. Thunder is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on preventative. And, even though the rescue group spent over $3,000 on his vet care '| his adoption fee is only $200. To meet and possibly adopt him, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net or 708-224-1900. He is currently living in a foster home in Round Lake, Illinois. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Illinois
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.

    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year.
