Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    He is loving and protective, if he is called by his name or nickname (Wubby)he will calm down. He was separated from the dog that he was with because he is part pit. Family members took the lab, but refused to take him because he may become vicious. He is gentle with kids, at times he does forget that he is bigger than them and he gets a little excited. Right now he is very sad and scared.

    My name is Sam, short for Samantha. I just turned 5 years old and am a lab, pit bull mix breed (maybe some boxer too). I weigh about 24 lbs. I go to the doctor regularly. I live in the house with my family and snuggle on the couch a lot. I love my family and my 2.5 year old human brother but I can play a little too rough sometimes. I love to go on walks or runs to get my energy out. My family recently moved to a busy street. If I see the slightest opportunity to run away, I take it. They are really scared I am going to get hit by a car. (I ran into the side of one just recently but luckily I am ok.) My family is moving again this fall and ... (Read More)are not able to take me with this time. I would love to join a new family that will love and play with me. I don't really get along with cats or very small dogs.I do need to be more polite when people come into my house, I still just get so excited. I survived the parvovirus when I was a baby. The vet said I was a miracle! (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Shae is a beautiful, snuggly and loving, five-year-old, 43-pound, female red and white terrier/bulldog-mix looking for a loving guardian. Poor Shae was found hobbling around Chicago as a stray with two torn ACL's. It was also obvious that she had been used for breeding. Luckily she was rescued and is having much needed surgery on Wednesday, July 23, 2014. She is currently living in a loving foster home with two cats and another dog with whom she gets along beautifully. She has such a sweet and gentle temperament. Shae just loves being with her foster family. She loves toys and everyone Shae meets is her new best friend. She is full of ... (Read More)kisses and tail wags. She loves curling up and watching TV with her foster family. She also enjoys snuggling in bed with them. Shae is housebroken, crate-trained, not at all destructive or aggressive. She's looking for a home with few stairs as she's recovering from surgery. She'd also be best without a rambunctious dog in the home so she doesn't re-injure herself. Shae's adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of Rain Dog Rescue. She is otherwise healthy, spayed, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. To meet and possibly adopt Shae, or to assist with a donation, please contact info@raindogrescue.org or 773-770-5115. She is currently being fostered in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood. (Less)

Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    I have to Pitt bull mix female sisters that do not like being apart. Sox is black & white and the younger of the two but has s need to be close to Ivy the brown one. I would like to keep them together but understand if it can not be done. I rescued them from a family that could no longer care for them and now I am unable to bring them to our new home as the breed is not allowed. They are good with people as long as they're in their home. Never bit anyone or attacked or showed aggressive behavior, they do love to bark if in the yard at passersby. They are great with kids, they allow my 5yr old twins to lay on them & are just so full of love ... (Read More)for the family. To my knowledge they have not been vaccinated. They love walks, however Sox gets excited and needs some leash training bc she loves to pull, she loves jumping in the lake but ivy does not. Ivy is more behaved on the leash. I am heartbroken that I can not keep these lovely ladies and im hoping to find a family that will love them and not just try and breed them. Looking forward to meeting a loving family for my girls!

    Sammie is somewhere between 1.5 - 2 years old. She weighs 50 pounds and is a joy to have around. I found Sammie and immediately fell in love with her. I was hoping to make her a part of our home, but, unfortunately our American Bulldog, Roxie, didn't feel like we did. Roxie has been aggressive toward Sammie and I'm concerned for her safety. Sammie is a very sweet Pitbull Terrier who just wants to be loved. She is great with older children and all adults. She has a lot of energy and loves attention so needs to be with a family who will have time to exercise her and spend quality time with her. She cannot be left alone for long periods of time ...

My heart breaks at the thought of finding a new home for her, but I have to do what's best for her. Sammie deserves to be with a great family. She will make a great dog for anyone who is willing to love her the way we do. (Less)

I have dealt with her energy level by bike riding with her 3-7 miles 3 times a week when I can. It helps alot. She will become somewhat destructive with out excercise. She loves my other dog but he lets her be the dominant one. She has stranger issues in rare intances that I cant get to the bottom of. All in all she needs a less full home and more ...

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-17-00400Trouble (male)

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Trouble is a beautiful 5 year old (I think) pitbull mix and is primarily black w/ white patch on his chest. I adopted him over 2 1/2 years ago after a friend who grabbed him out of the backyard of a family that was abusing him. He has scars from his past life, both physical and emotional. However, he is the sweetest baby in the world...he will beg you pet him and will stay there for hours, or as long as you will give him attention. He has no aggression issues. I love Trouble very much, but I am not able to be home with him as much as he requires. He has separation anxiety, and is destroying my home, things, and his own kennels ... (Read More)every day when we go to work. He needs a mommy or daddy that can be home with him more than I can, give him more exercise, will love him and show him patience and caring, and understands the issues surrounding abused/neglected dogs. He has come a long way from the broken, battered dog that came into my life and home 2 1/2 years ago, but I am not able to bring him the rest of the way. I have tried everything in my arsenal to help him adjust and heal, including meds (xanax), D.A.P., bitter apple, chew toys, bones, and even energy clearing/healing...everything. If you are looking for a sweet, loving, energetic dog, and you work from home or are a stay at home parent, this could work very well for you. He is great with kids and women, but is a little timid and frightened around some men. He comes with a bed, toys, collar, leash, and bowls...for a nominal fee of $100 (negotiable for the right family) to ensure that he is going to a place that will love him and help him continue the healing process.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Casper is a, beautiful, gentle male neutered pit bull/boxer mix, approximately 16 months old when he was rescued from Green River Kentucky. He has been with his foster family since mid June. He loves to play fetch, go for walks daily and play with other dogs. Currently his playmates are two large dogs. He is maybe the smallest in size but he is the youngest and enjoys playtime immensely as he spent three plus months in a kennel. Casper is housebroken, but a private poo-per, barks for attention and when somebody is at the door. He walks best on a traditional leash. An expandable leash confuses him and he think is on a tie out and wants to ... (Read More)play. After just a week he has earned the right to have freedom of our entire home with our pets.( two dogs and a cat).Casper is indifferent to our cat. He does not chase or stalk the cat. Casper understands basic commands: sit ,walk,stay ,leave it and his name. He will take food gently from your hand. Gives kisses and follows me throughout the house. If you decide to adopt Casper and you are looking for him, just look down and mostly he can be found at your feet. If necessary I would suggest you gated him as he does not do well in a crate! Casper would do best in a home with another dog (s). He is young playful dog looking at a forever home. His adoption fee is $295 and includes neuter, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email Kathy for an application at caseysdogs@yahoo.com. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Adult

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

    I have a spayed female fawn Blue Nose Pitbull that is about 5 or 6 years old named Bailey. IN need of a new forever home. A friend of mine asked if I'd take her in for a soldier that went overseas. The soldier's sister was supposed to keep the dog then decided she didn't want to and was going to take the dog to the pound. I didn't want to see that happen, so I decided to take her in. My landlord will not let me keep her any longer. She has a skin condition going on, on her back (Alopecia I believe), that will need some medical attention. She's about 80 lbs i'd guess. She is fine around other dogs, doesn't like cats. Good with kids. She has ... (Read More)a loud bark and likes to use it. She is potty trained, lovable, lazy. Doesn't tear things up. Overall good dog. (Less)

    Toby is a handsome and sweet, two-year-old, 50-pound, male, pit bull terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Toby lost his home when the apartment building he was living in burned down. Toby was lucky to have survived with minor burns and scratches which have since healed beautifully. But, his human couldn't find another affordable apartment that accepted dogs, so Toby is looking for a new loving home. Toby is perfectly housebroken, non-destructive and very well trained. He knows the commands sit, down, shake, kiss and dance! He's currently living in a foster home where his best friend is a ten-pound poodle. He exhibits no food ... (Read More)aggression; he's all about love. He likes most dogs, but does not do well with cats, but gets along well with the resident ferret. Toby is a cuddler who loves sleeping in bed with his family. Toby is very healthy, neutered and micro-chipped. To meet and possibly adopt him, please contact his foster mom Miriam at mita0822@yahoo.com or 312-316- 7184. His adoption fee of $100 benefits rescued dogs. This is a courtesy post (Less)

    High energy 7 month old pit bull. This adorable puppy loves everyone and all animals. Current owner loves Leo, but doesn't have the room or the time to take care of this wonderful baby. Leo needs room to run and loves attention. The only time this dog 'attacks' is with kisses and happiness when you walk in the door.

    Hi, my name is Lucy and I am a 2.5 year old, 52 pound, female pit bull. I am very active and love to go on walks, runs and wrestle. I am a world class snuggler and kisser. I am looking for a new home with a very disciplined owner who would be able to help manage my leash anxiety issues. I have been in my current home for over two years and my current owners love me very much. Unfortunately, one of my owners is not a good fit with my personality and recognizes that a different home would greatly improve with managing my leash anxiety needs. I am great with dogs that I have already met and can play very well with them with some ... (Read More)supervision. I would do best with a more disciplined owner who does not own any cats and with children over the age of five. I would have to meet any possible doggy siblings to make sure we get along.

    Hi all, I am acquiring to see if anyone can give me advice. I found this awesome female dog running around on i40 in TN (hence her name is now 'Tennessee.') We went to see if she was microchipped and there is no microchip with a collar with no name on it. We are trying to determine what to do as this has been a while since we 'found a dog' since our move from Charlotte NC (there were tons of rescues there that I could connect) In mean time we are learning more about her. She loves cats and dogs, NO food or toy aggression, car trained, Only knows sit right now.

Her weight seems low so I feed her Nutro Ultra and she's free to eat as much as she wants/needs throughout the day. I am only finding her a new home because I will be moving and am only allowed one dog. She's current on all her shots, heartworm negative, spayed and just a great dog. I would want her to go straight from my home to her new home, I don't want her to experience a shelter again. She is loved very much I am just trying to do right by her.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Agent Dunham is a wonderful puppy! She loves bones, sleeping in the sun, and exploring anything and everything around our home! Olivia has had a difficult short life. She was abandoned on the elevated tracks (which are electrified!) here in Chicago about 3-4 months back. At that time she was only 4 months old. She was then passed around for the next two months, until I heard that she was living with an abusive alcoholic, and I intervened. Although I never intended to own a pit bull, Olive pulled at my heart. When she entered my life she was underweight and had just begun her heat cycle. The vet also told me that her back left hip joint had ... (Read More)already splintered into many pieces and since healed over. She will need surgery at some point if she has any chance of avoiding a painful arthritic adulthood'|. Despite the hand she was dealt, Olivia is the sweetest dog I know! She loves to cuddle and sleep in the bed with me. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body! We go to the local dog park regularly where she plays with every dog she can find. There, she has been introduced to small children, but she largely ignores them to run with the big dogs. Olive is approximately 55 pounds of pure muscle. I have heard her described as a 'miniature' or 'micro' pit, because she is much smaller than most pits. I have been repeatedly told she is full-blooded though. She is in no danger (with me), and I am not in a terrible hurry to let her go (as she is my new best friend). However, I am just too busy to care for her, and she is young enough that she would make a wonderful pet for a single person as well as a family! (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Aggressive 

    Very loving dog but full of anxiety so he is misunderstood. He grew up around our two small daughters and our lab he is great with them but he can also be very over protected. He is 4 yrs old we don't want to take him to a pound I would hate to think they will put him down if he does not get adopted. Due to our new schedules we are unable to spend time with him which is not fair to him at all. He will need a home where someone is willing to take the time to work with him while I'm warms up to you & get to know you. He does good with other but it takes time. Thanks & I hope he gets adopted soon.

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Jamilla is a beautiful, smart and playful, two-year-old who is full of kisses and tail wags for the volunteers at the shelter. She LOVES people. She has an old injury to her left eye, so her vision may not be perfect. She is medium energy, affectionate, and knows a couple basic commands. She is friendly with other dogs, but can be bossy, so will do best with submissive dogs who can put up with her pushy ways! Even though Jamilla passed the Chicago Animal Care & Control temperament test and is on the adoption floor at 2741 South Western Avenue in Chicago, she is still subject to euthanasia if she doesn't leave the shelter soon! Poor Jamilla ... (Read More)had obviously been used for breeding a couple litters of puppies before being thrown out; she was found stray wandering the city. Jamilla is otherwise very healthy, spayed, and up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested and micro-chipped. To meet and possibly adopt, foster or rescue Jamilla, please contact Kat at kbudrean@hotmail.com or call/text 312-823-9930. Her adoption fee of $65 benefits Chicago Animal Care & Control. (Less)

    Nala has spent most of her life in boarding and foster homes, awaiting her furever home. She is crate and house trained. She knows basic commands and will thrive in a household that can maintain her training. Due to her size and energy level, she would do best in a home with larger children and a fenced-in yard. She's a goofball at heart, and once her energy is expended, she loves to rustle up the couch cushions and settle in for some shut eye. Her previous foster home had dogs, and she seems to thrive having other dogs of her size and energy level around. This long-legged beauty just wants an alpha human to love and a home she can feel ...

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Diogi truly is an amazing pet. He is loving, loyal, and fun. He is high energy and needs a lot of exercise. Even having a fenced in back yard would help him use up some of his energy. We love him dearly and have had him since he was 5 weeks old. The only reason we can't keep him is because we can't give him the life he deserves. We have traveled across country with him and he loved it. He does well in the car and he is an amazing companion. My husband and I found out last year we would be having a baby. He does wonderfully around the baby and all other humans but he is dog/animal aggressive. My husband and I, after finding out we were ... (Read More)pregnant, stopped our traveling and moved home. Due to money issues we have had to move in with family members. We live in my mother's house and she has a dog... We were forced to find somewhere else for Diogi to live. He is currently being fostered at my husband's family's home. They have a small dog and have been keeping the two pretty much separate. They actually get along alright but due to past dog aggression they are nervous to let them be together without supervision. Lately it has come to my attention that they love Diogi but he is becoming a burden for them to continue to take care of. I heard them mention getting Diogi put down if we could not find him a home. We are desperate to find Diogi a home! He is truly amazing and we are saddened every day that we don't get to have him, but we can't see us being able to afford a place any time soon. I know there is a home for him out there. He is an adventurous and loving pet. He is the life of the party- everyone loves him just as he loves everyone he meets. If you have a home with a fence or an active lifestyle without other pets Diogi could be a perfect match for you. Please help us rehome this amazing guy. (Less)

Destiny was rescued after surviving a neglectful and abusive puppyhood. She is currently living in a foster home with two Great Danes who she loves to herd, play with and chase. After acclimating to her foster home she has proven mild-mannered and calm. However, she does carry with her the residual fears from her traumatized youth.

(Read More)Destiny is sometimes nervous in new situations and when meeting new people. However, she's a smart girl who can acclimate if given time and patience.

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)

Rescue Me ID: 13-05-20-00270Missy (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Missy is a beautiful, happy, sweet, loving and playful, 18-month-old, 38-pound, chocolate and vanilla, female pit bull terrier looking for a loving guardian. Missy was confiscated from a felon on the south side of Chicago. He cut her ears to make her look tough, and trained her to fight other dogs. She is incredibly sweet and affectionate with people, but she can not be trusted with other dogs. She can be with a dog multiple times and seem just fine ... but then out of the blue, her past training resurfaces and she attacks. She was taught to go straight for the throat. She also is incredibly agile and athletic, so she can easily hop over a ... (Read More)six-foot fence. So, she would do best with someone with either an eight-foot fence or who takes her on lots of walks and jogs ... she is great on leash, and loves to play ball! Missy loves to be pet and actually enjoys being bathed. She knows the command 'sit' and takes treats extremely gently from your fingers. She is crate-trained and appears housebroken. She is also great in the car - she sits nicely on the back seat and enjoys the ride. Missy is looking for an experienced bully breed-lover. She really needs to work, so someone who will continue to train, exercise and work with her is what she needs to succeed. Missy is healthy, de-wormed, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested negative and on monthly preventative. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits rescued dogs. She is being kenneled in West Chicago, Illinois. To meet and possibly temporarily foster or permanently adopt her, contact JJ at jjpitsaver@gmail.com or 708-652-3475 or Melia at melia88@comcast.net or 708-224-1900. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Lucky was saved from a kill shelter at his last hour. He is a very sweet boy with people (don't know about children), but does not get along with other male and some female dogs. He has had no training, which would probably help, but would be best as an only dog. He knows how to use the doggie door to go potty. Loves to play fetch. Loves petting. We are in the St. Louis metro area (in IL)

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.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
