Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Buddy is 4 months old and a very playful dog. We feel that he would be better in a house without small children so he would be better with older kids (12 and up). He's played with our Siberian Husky, and they get along great, sometimes it gets out of hand. He's a very affectionate pup and needs basic command training. We recommend a house with a yard to run in so he can release some of his energy.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Meet Miss Marley, a fun-loving, friendly and energetic 2 year old female Pit Bull/Dogo mix. She's a special girl in need of a special family! Marley, like many solid white or predominately white animals, was born deaf. She doesn't know anything is different about her and has such a happy attitude! Poor Marley has been bounced around a bit in her short life and she's searching for a committed and loving forever home. She was purchased by a truck driver when she was just 8 weeks old and went all across the country in his truck with him. She quickly outgrew the truck cabin, however, and her owner realized his mistake and realized he did not ... (Read More)have the time or space to give Marley the exercise and attention that every young dog needs. Marley was then given to a family with two other dogs and school-aged children. Marley loved it there and had a great time playing with the children and other dogs. Unfortunately, the adults in the family had to take new jobs with much longer hours and Marley again found herself in need of a new home. A wonderful volunteer with Pal's Place heard her story and stepped up to foster her. Marley is being fostered with a male Pit Bull and a male Mastiff and two cats and she's doing well with everyone and wants to be buds with everyone. She's learning hand signals and some manners and has proved herself to be a very a quick study and is very attentive. She wants to please her people so badly! Living with a deaf dog is not that much different than living with any other dog, and they pick up on hand signals very quickly. Marley, like many young dogs of her breed loves to play and would do best in a more active home. She'll be a phenomenal companion for one lucky home! Marley is currently being fostered in Genoa, IL and can be seen by appointment once an approved application as been received and approved. For more info or for an application, please email palsplace1@hotmail.com for more information. Her adoption donation of $275 helps to cover her medical expenses while in our care. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm tested. 'ۢ Marley's adoption donation is $275. This donation helps to cover her spay, initial vaccines, initial worming, and microchip. Pal's Place relies solely on donations to care for the pets in our care. Your donation also helps save other animals like Marley from euthanasia. 'ۢ Please email Palsplace1@hotmail.com for an adoption application and please put the name of the dog in the subject line.

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

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

    Swifty is a beautiful, snugly sweet, gentle and loving two-year-old, 58-pound, female, chocolate and vanilla pit bull terrier looking for a loving guardian. Swifty is full of kisses and tails wags for all the people she meets. And, if you sit on the floor she'll jump right in your lap for a snuggle session. She was rescued from Chicago Animal Care & Control and is currently living in a foster home in the Shorewood/Joliet area. Swifty is a low-energy girl who enjoys short walks and short spurts of play. She'll play fetch for a little while or go for a short walk around the neighborhood. She prefers longer walks if you take her out of her ... (Read More)own neighborhood. She knows the commands sit, down, paw, rollover and stay. She is also wonderful on road trips. She's joined her foster mom on six-hour road trips with no issue at all. She is housebroken and crate-trained and stays in her crate when her mom leaves the home. Swifty is great with children and has never shown any aggression at all to a human. She is, however, not good with cats, and she's good with select dogs - typically male dogs larger than herself. She'd love a home with a fenced in yard in a quiet neighborhood. She is sometimes difficult to walk in congested areas because she can be dog reactive. Swifty is extremely healthy, spayed, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested negative, and up-to-date on vaccines. To meet and possibly adopt her, please contact Kat at kbudrean@hotmail.com for an adoption application. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits FCACC and includes professional training to help her transition to her new home. (Less)

    Sheamus is an amazing, energetic, lovable cuddly dog. I am needing to re-home him because I have a new job that has me gone up to 10 1/2 hours at a time. I feel horrible leaving him locked up in the house that long. He just looks so miserable and depressed when I leave. He needs someone with another medium to large size dog who has more time from him.

    Oh Trooper - you've been through so much and stayed so positive! Trooper is a beautiful copper pit bull mix who arrived at ACL from a local animal control. When Trooper was originally found, he was almost starved to death - unfortunately, the dog he was found with was so ill, he didn't make it. Trooper managed to pull through, and we knew after hearing his story that we could give him the second chance he needed. Trooper has been spending time in the foster home beefing up and getting healthy, and he's proven himself to be an incredibly sweet dog. He's super affectionate, low-key, and very loving. He's housetrained and well-behaved in the ... (Read More)home, too! Trooper is a little barky when he's on his leash and he sees other dogs, but he's learning quickly how to cope with his excitement better. He likes other dogs after a proper introduction, so don't let his barkiness on leash give you the wrong impression! Trooper would be a great fit for a home with kids of all ages and a family who wouldn't mind helping Trooper fully adjust to life has a happy, healthy dog! (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hello hello! Don't worry, you aren't seeing double: we really are a dynamic duo that is looking for a forever home together! My name is Cookie and my sweet son is Luke; if you are looking for not one, but two amazing, loving, and endlessly entertaining BFFs, please consider making us a part of your family because we are available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation and Chicagoland Dog Rescue. These two groups joined together to save our lives when we showed up at Chicago Animal Care & Control because they could see how ... (Read More)bonded we are and had to give us a new chance at a happily ever after! Could that be with you? I am a 2-year-old, gorgeous Shar-Pei/American Pit Bull mix, and my dashingly handsome son Luke is about 1-year-old. I am about 35 pounds and have beautiful white and tan fur; I use my gorgeous chocolate eyes to stare adoringly at my favorite people. Luke is about 45 pounds with white and brindle swirls in his fur. We are a good-looking pair, but our personalities are even better! I am the more outgoing of the two of us (Luke is young and looks to me for instruction; who can blame him for being such a momma's boy when his momma is as awesome as me?) Luke can be shy with new people, but once he sees me say hello he opens up very quickly. We have made quite a few new human friends; everyone tells us how much they love us! We are also having a great time at our foster home: we have a big fenced yard there and we LOVE to romp and play in the wide, open space. So we would have to have a fenced yard at our forever home to enjoy. We like to be active and are a little mischievous, so having a big space to play is definitely ideal! When we are all tired out from our play sessions, we love to curl up together with our foster mommy and dole out lots and lots of sweet kisses. We are becoming good roommates and working to improve our manners more and more every day! We would love a patient family who will continue to help us be our best selves. We are working on perfecting potty training and learning to let foster mommy know when we have to go do our business. With continued practice and a consistent schedule, we will have it down in no time! We are crate trained and can be left to hang out with each other for up to eight hours in our extra large crate to entertain ourselves and take some cuddly naps together. Since we are young, when foster mommy comes home we like to spend lots of time playing and burning our energy in fun ways. We have even learned the command sit already and would love to learn more! Fetching Tails Foundation likes to encourage all adopters to attend training classes with their new pups, and we think we would greatly benefit from the chance to socialize, bond with our new family, and see just how smart we can become by learning all the fun tricks and commands we hear they teach you in class. Foster mommy says we take corrections well and learn fast, so I bet we would be the class co-valedictorians in no time! We also love car rides, so we would love to go on adventures with you! If you think two dogs are better than one, and want to give us our happily ever after together, please contact our friends at Fetching Tails and CDR soon and tell them you want double the fun with Cookie and Luke!

He's perfectly house broken and wonderful on a leash. His greatest joy in life is laying in your lap and playing with toys. He gets insulin twice a day but it's incredible easy to give and he's an angel for the pokes. He had a rough start in life so he needs someone patient and possibly familiar with the breed. He loves other dogs, has not been cat tested and should only be around older kids.

    Meet Cynthia! This beautiful girl came in as a stray and no one ever came looking for her. She was underweight and working on gaining, and has probably had a litter or two in the past. We promised her nothing but the good life from now on! We believe she is around 5 years old, a sweet girl who loves treats and tested well with other dogs. She would prefer a no cat household. Lets help this girl find a family who will show her how great life can be!

    Neville is an incredibly sweet, playful, affectionate and lovable 18-month-old, 67-pound, male brindle and white pit bull terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. 'Nevy,' as his friends call him, adores people and gets along with other dogs. He and two other dogs were turned in to Chicago Animal Care and Control when their owner could no longer care for them. He is full of kisses and tail wags for everyone he meets. He is perfectly housebroken, quiet in the home and wonderful on leash. He absolutely loves to go on car rides. Neville knows the command sit and takes treats very gently from your fingers. He is living in a foster home ... (Read More)and he doesn't even beg for human food. He loves to play with ropes and chew bones, and sleep in bed with his foster family. Neville is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Famous Fido's. He is currently being fostered in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg. If you are interested in adopting him, please fill in the online application at http://famousfidorescue.com/rescueforms/machform/view.php?id=26727 and follow up by calling Gloria at fido@famousfidorescue.com or 773-907-0305. When Neville and his friends were brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control, he caught kennel cough and needed a foster home with no other dogs. Luckily a lovely couple, Rob and Lara in Schaumburg, stepped forward to care for him until he finds a permanent home. Isolation fosters, like them, are critical to saving lives. If you'd like to foster an at-risk dog, please contact Gloria at Famous Fido's at fido@famousfidorescue.com or 773-907-0305. (Less)

(Read More)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. 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 clinic's phone number you use currently, or in the past is required to adopt for a reference. We have 15 rescued dogs of all sizes all praying for a real home! Please do not consider a dog for Christmas unless you want a dog as a family member for its whole life. (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.

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. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting. 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.
