    Jack is a black and white, beautifully marked, and muscular pit bull. He is good with adults, has not had a lot of exposure to children, so we don't know how he is with children. Likes to chase cats, and other small animals. He's very strong and will challenge some other dogs. Gets along fine with some dogs, such as a relative's golden retriever and shepherd. Does not get along with other terriers or smaller breeds.

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-29-00512TRUCKER the Gentleman (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    TRUCKER - A 1 Year Old Gentleman Looking for a healthy, young male dog for adoption in Chicago? Trucker is an absolute gentleman! This 1 year old American Pitbull Terrier mix is an all-round great dog. He is well trained and gentle, healthy, neutered and up to date on his shots. He loves to cuddle and play with toys! Please consider adopting him today. You can call Debbie at (773) 382-0834 or fill out an adoption application here: http://petprosservices.com/adopt/ ________________________________________ Hi, My name is Trucker! If you are looking for the dog of your dreams, search no further - you have found me! Not only am I incredibly good ... (Read More)looking - I have a personality to match! I am about the sweetest, most gentle young dog you can imagine. My favorite activity is snuggling, followed by playing and going for walks, riding in the car, and greeting you with gusto when you come in the door. I am looking for my forever family. I have been bounced around a bit after having been found abandoned in the back of a semi truck. My foster Mom loves me to bits, but has to find me a new home right away as she has just found out her apartment does not allow my breed. I would very much love to become a first-hand family member in a home with some great kids, a nice big securely fenced yard, and lots of time to spend with me. I am a gentle giant, and I get along with other dogs and cats. I am such a gentleman and am already well trained. I am completely housebroken, know quite a few commands like sit, stay and heel, and am always very well behaved when you take me for a walk. I'll bring with my all of my things, including my leash, collar, treats, toys and dog bowls. If you are thinking about adding a dog to your family, please think about me! I really am a great dog and deserve to be the love of your life. Hope to hear from you soon! Wags and Wiggles, Trucker Breed of Pet: Pit Bull Mix (maybe part bulldog) Sex of Pet: Male Age of Pet: around one year old Spayed/Neutered?: Yes Health Problems: No Up To Date on Vaccinations: Yes Gets along with cats: Yes Gets along with dogs: Yes Accessories Included: Leash, collar, plenty of treats and toys, dog bowls Trucker's Personality Trucker is a pretty mellow yet playful boy. He's very handsome and has excellent manners- a perfect gentleman! He follows his commands well and is gentle despite his physical strength. He loves cuddling and playing with his toys. He enjoys sniffing on walks and meeting new people and pups. He knows how to sit, lay down, stay, come, and heel. He is also house-trained and up to date on all vaccines. He'll follow you all around the house. Trucker's Current Home Environment I am currently fostering Trucker (from Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue) until he gets adopted. For now, he's living in a one bedroom apartment facing lake Michigan in Chicago. Because there's not a whole lot of room, he's been going on lots of walks and hanging out at friends houses too. Trucker's Current Family: I am a single college student studying medicine and currently applying to medical school. I love dogs and foster them whenever I can. I'm very active and social. Trucker's Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities? He loves tennis balls, rope toys, and anything that you can play tug a war with. He isn't that all that interested in people food. His favorite activities are probably snuggling and playing with his toys. Cute Trucker Story: I've only had him for two days so I don't really have any stories quite yet! Just complements! Why is Trucker Being Rehomed? Although I've fostered dogs before in my apartment, the manager told me today that they do not allow Pit Bulls. I wish I could keep Trucker for longer because he really is a wonderful companion. I realize I could return him to Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue (who runs the foster program), but I feel guilty making him relocate again. This is his second foster home after the previous foster parent wanted to return him because she thought she had too many kids and dogs on her hands (like a total of 7). He was originally found in the back of a semi truck, abandoned. He lived with the people who run CBBR for a little while, then with trainers for a couple months, and then with his first foster parents. I'd just love for him to be placed in a forever home and not have to keep moving around. Trucker's Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be: He is fine being left alone for a few hours or so, so whoever adopts him doesn't have to be with him all the time. It'd be great if the adoptive parents would be willing to continue with his obedience work. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    This is an 11mo old puppy that I had got a little over month ago. When I got her I was told from the owner that she was potty trained and she's not. Before picking her up I had stressed to the previous owner that my landlord will not approve if she isn't housebroken, after week of trying to train her she was still having accidents in the house I called and said it's not working out that I would have to bring her back she then told me that she didn't have the rehoming fee that I paid and I would have to wait untill the 27th and she would be able to take her back and return the re homing fee and now they aren't answering my phone calls or ... (Read More)text messages. I can't put her in the crate because she breaks out and scratches her face bad and poops in the cage a well and it's a bigger mess to clean , sokeep her out and she counter surfs I work doubles 3 days a week at my job and every day day shift, having a neighbor come let her out isn't enough. She continues to go in my house and I cannot have this goin on. My landlord will be furious if he knew this was going on. I posted on Facebook asking for help to rehome her but if I cannot find her a home I will have to take her to the humane society and they are full of pit bulls I really don't want to do that to her. She really is an amazing pup. I don't even need a leash when I take her out, she listens so well too. It's just the anxiety of being alone that gets to her. She doesn't touch food until told to eat. She's amazing around all 3 of my kids (ages 8,6,3) and she's a cuddle bug sleeps in bed with me or at the foot of my kids beds. She loves to run and play fetch, she loves other animals, gets along great with men and women especially kids. She loves to play with kids.. Please help find a home for her besides the needing attention with potty training and anxiety of being alone she's a doll. (Less)

    Sox has grown up with one yr old twins and teenagers and has never tried to harm them. S hhy e is extremely lovable but can use some training. She loves to splash in the lake. Very playful. I would live someone that can love her and take her for walks since that is her favorite thing to do. She has grown up with another pitt in the home as well. She loves to chase squirrels and any other animal that may come in her yard. We can not bring her or her sister to our new house so I'm hoping there is someone out there that can give her a good home with plenty of love.

    Hi! I'm Xavier and I am about a year old and am looking for my forever home. I'm a special boy because when I was young, I was hit by a car and broke my back leg, the vets decided that I could get by without it, so now I'm a tripod and loving life! I absolutely LOVE people. In fact, I really don't ever want to be alone so I need a family with some patience to help me learn that I really will be there forever. I've been bumped around to a few different places so I get anxious when people leave me. But I'm really working on that and am doing much better at my trainer's house. I get along with dogs that are about my size. I prefer to play ... (Read More)more gently though because I can get a little off-balance because of my 3 legs and that makes me very nervous.

    Jazzy is very likable and she just needs to be trained. She was found on a chain, malnourished, abused, and flies have bitten her ears on top until flesh was exposed. Her ears are healing due to being treated. She just wants to be loved and needs someone to train her and be patient with her. She loves children and is good with other animals. I have a purebred Bull Mastiff and she gets along with him fine. I just can't afford another dog and I rescued Jazzy from an abusive situation.

    Hello my name is Jasmine. I am the happiest and most fun loving girl you will ever meet. I am about 2-1/2 years old, weigh around 60 pounds and I am a Pit Bull mix. Not sure what I'm mixed with though. Maybe Boxer as I have nice long legs? I don't look much like a Boxer though. I had a pretty rough start. I was saved from an open access shelter only a couple hours before I was to be euthanized. I was severely neglected and emaciated. I only weighed 36 pounds when I was rescued. I also ended up have a sever case of pneumonia. It has only been just over a month since I was saved but looking at me you would never know anything terrible ever ... (Read More)happened to me. I love life and everyone around me. I love to play ball and snuggle. Walks are awesome too and car rides are a blast. I want nothing more than to find a home were I will be loved and pampered like the beautiful girl I am. I get along with dogs and although interested in cats I don't try to hurt them. I would benefit from further obedience training. I am crate trained and house trained. I promise I can learn with some patience though. I am spayed, up to date on my shots, and microchipped. If you want a happy go lucky, loving dog in your life look no farther'|you have found me. Please fill out an application today so we can meet!! IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JASMINE, please fill out our Adoption Application (http://www.helpinganimals.org/adopt/apply.php). This is the first step in meeting the dog.

    Fun, loving pitbull puppy. He's one year old and great with kids. He has been raised with a 2 year old and 5 year old child since he was 2 weeks old. Loves to play games such a tug of war. He loves to go on walks and is fully trained. He absolutely loves every person he meets and would make a great family dog. Unfortunately I cannot keep him due to my next home not being pet friendly.

    Looking to rehome my pit mix Emmy. Great dog if you want someone to snuggle up with. Comes from a loving home and I expect her to go to the same. I would like her to have more room to play outside with a fenced in yard as I currently reside in a condo and as you can see in her photo she loves the outdoors. She goes to daycare once a week and has been fine at the dog park. I have never heard of her being bad with dogs however I do know she got into a little tiff with my parents dog regArding food so might be suited as only dog in a home. She does tend to chase cats as I brought her to my friends farm.

    Chaos and his brother, Storm, are purebred red nose pitbulls who were rescued at 6 weeks old. These puppies have been raised around other dogs (female and male) as well as kids and adults. They love to snuggle and play fetch as well as tug a war, and currently are trying to get over their chewing stage which is why I've been giving them massive dog bones so they know what they can and can not chew on. Unfortunately living arrangements are changing and I will not be able to keep the brothers so I'm trying to find them an amazing home. They're amazing dogs and anyone who has them will love them.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Jack, originally named Ozzie, but was never responsive to Ozzie... Jack was returned to the Aurora Animal Control for biting a cat in his home, but he had been there for a couple months without any problems!? He is a bit mouthy when it comes to playing, but we have been working on that, and he responds nicely to 'no biting'. Important he has a home which will not perpetuate this biting habit. He and Cora have become best of friends, and he is always quick to let her know when she is getting out of hand, and he helps her to calm down. I would absolutely love if they could go to a home together, but I also believe they are pretty ... (Read More)easily adaptable to new situations. Jack is eager to please, and is a cuddler once play time is over. If you lift up a blanket, he will snuggle up underneath it, although he prefers to be under the blanket with you cuddled up by your feet. He is a total love nugget, and is very sweet. You just have to be sure to set boundaries with him, or else he will (literally) walk all over you. He isn't a tall guy, but he is beefy. I actually named him after Jack Link's beef jerky, because of his beefy build. And he is a beautiful brindle. (also, his coloring looks like a mix of jack & coke) if I hadn't met this sweet man the day I did, he would have been PTS that night, he barely escaped that fate, and now needs a home to call his own!!!!! He needs exercise, either fetch in a fenced in backyard, or we have actually taken him for a run on our bikes, all the way (about 2.5 miles) to our local dog park! When we arrive, he still has plenty of energy to play and meet new dogs! He has never been driven to the dog park, and I think if introduced to new dogs it is important to wear his energy out beforehand, as he can be kind of overwhelming with his eccentric energy. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Cora was found at Aurora Animal, and when I approached her cage, she didn't move a muscle. She was terrified. And because of this, she was deemed unadoptable and was set to be euthanized. This girl looked like she had just had a litter of puppies, and no matter how much I coaxed her at the cage's door, she wouldn't even lift her head to look at me. The same day I pulled her, she was set to be spayed. I arrived to pick her up after surgery, and was greeted with some really tough info. She hadn't had her puppies yet, and upon opening her up they found her 2 pups, which didn't survive. ): The vet warned me to be cautious of depression, which ... (Read More)emerged days after bringing her home.. At first she saw nothing beyond the grass, she rolled and rolled and rolled around, it was hard to get her to come inside! Originally, the owner who surrendered her had been calling her 'Negra' but we felt she needed a prettier name, and she must have agreed, because there was no hesitation for her to answer to her new name. She is a sweet heart, which is why we named her Cora. Stemming from the Spanish word 'Corazon,' this translates to 'heart'. Since becoming an orphan at Aurora Animal Control, she has had a very rough time of it, but her character couldn't be better. She's got a very sweet and calm disposition. She does well with my alpha female after behavioral training, and I think would do best in a home with a male dog, as she seems to better bond with male dogs. She has very much bonded with Jack, also in her photo; he's the one IN the cage, and she is ON the cage. She is very goofy, and unpredictable, which is why I would think she would be best in a home with no children, but I have never tested her with children. There is NO AGGRESSIVENESS with this dog, but there is FEAR which can be confused with aggression. She will need an owner who can continue to build up her confidence and pull her out of her shell! She is definitely in need of an owner familiar with positive reinforcement as opposed to discipline/punishment. She is currently being treated for heartworm, and will be ready for her forever home as soon as that is cleared, unless you would be willing to finish her treatment, which is already paid for!!!

    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.

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)

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 ... (Read More)because she becomes a little too curious. Sammie has all her vaccines and has been spayed. 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)

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.

    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)

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)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Morgon is a handsome, affectionate, muscular and energetic, four-year-old, 65-pound, male pit bull terrier looking for a loving guardian. Sadly, Morgon was found tied to a tree during the Chicago blizzard of February 2011. He landed in a cage at Chicago Animal Care & Control which at least was warmer.

Morgon needs a little time to warm up to new people. Luckily he is very food-motivated, so earning his trust is as easy as offering him a treat. He is a happy, ... (Read More)energetic, loving dog who wants nothing more than to be someone's loyal and loved companion. Morgon is an inspiration and an example of what consistency and love can do for a dog. Morgon loves to play ball and tug. He does get over-stimulated when excited, so he is looking for a calm dog-experienced guardian who will keep Morgon working; he is happiest when he has a job to do. Morgon is no couch potato; he's more of a running buddy for an active outdoorsy person. Morgon is great in the car, and very attentive to his people. He's strong on leash, so he needs an equally strong leader to guide him. He knows the commands sit and down and takes treats nicely from your fingers. He is also fantastic at catching a treat mid-air. Morgon is good with select dogs; his current best friend and playmate is a female pit bull terrier. To meet and possibly adopt Morgon, please contact K94Keeps rescue at info@k94keeps.org or 312-221-9285. Morgon is housebroken, crate-trained, very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative.

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. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. 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.
