    Jojo is a pitbull, about 3 years old as of November. He was found abandoned & I took him in as a foster over a year ago. I had him neutered & he is up to date on shots and preventive medications. Jojo is very sweet and friendly & loves to cuddle. He doesn't realize how big he is (around 70 lbs) & tries to sit on your lap. He is great with people & kids, and is housebroken. He walks on a leash fairly well....he does get excited and pull at times. He has had no issues with my female dog. My male dog however does not accept him so I am hoping to find a home where Jojo can be loved unconditionally.

Romeo LOVES his toys! The squeekier the better! He does a happy dance whenever he hears his favorite noise, THE SQUEAK! He's very treat motivated and eager to learn, knows basic commands, keeps a clean kennel run, and is an all around great guy! Please share this hunk so he can find a home of his own!

    This lovely lady is in need of a home. We found her wondering around and took her in. Unfortunately our land lord made it clear that we cannot keep her. She plays well with the other dog we have, and when family is over she is very sweet. We are hoping to find her a home where she is loved and taken care of instead of sending her to a shelter.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    **DELAVAN, WI** (not Tinley Park) Dearest Santa, Angelo here. I'm told I need to be writing to you so a miracle happens and my forever family comes to find me. I'm a young guy, not even 3 years old yet and coming in January, I will have spent a whole YEAR of my life at the shelter and also being super confused on the roller coaster of a life I've had this last year. You see, I was found wandering and the police department had me for a few days hoping my family was looking for me. Turns out that was wrong so I was turned over to the shelter. It wasn't too bad at first. I had a few dog friends and everyone loved me! I have a great ... (Read More)personality if I do say so myself. One day, a wonderful family came to adopt me. I had a doggy sister and I was on my way to my happily ever after. But then I got sick, very sick. We don't know what it was, I was tested for everything. My family decided bringing me back to the shelter was best for them b3cause when I didn't feel well, I didn't act well. So back to the shelter I went-sick, sad, scared and confused. I was still so ill there that I was placed into a foster home. And I pulled through and over a month or so I felt back to normal! I was so happy to have a foster home and life was great ! Then, as my luck would have it, my foster home brought me back to the shelter. Since I was all healed up, it meant I had to go back. That shattered my heart into a million pieces. I could not believe I was back. Don't get me wrong, I've always been loved at the shelter but this is no place for me and I need my forever family or at least someone to help me out until that family comes. I'm thankful to have people here loving and caring about me so much. I've become very close with my best volunteer friend and she loves me so much, I just know she does. We go on car rides, field trips and adventures. She even brings her little son with and boy do I love him! Sometimes I get so excited I like to jump on him to say hello but if I know you have treats to praise my good behavior I will be as obedient as they come! I still like other dogs but I don't really like cats anymore. My best friend thinks if I just had the chance out of the shelter and live in a real home with someone who loves me, I would thrive so, so much. I'm going bonkers here, I hate being in my kennel and I try to show everyone that by jumping , crying and banging around in my kennel. I'm just trying to get them to pick me, but they always walk right by. :( Please Santa, send that family to me!! Love, Angelo (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dax is a very protective, energetic 1 1/2 year old purebred pit bull. He listens well and knows simple commands but goes crazy when he sees another dog and he doesn't listen at that point. We are unsure how he would behave around children but he gets irritated and is protective of his bones and toys. Dax needs a nice big yard because he has a lot of energy but he is very loving and likes to snuggle too.

Health: Malnourished, Abused/Neglected 

     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. I found this dog on Craigslist and acquired her yesterday. Her current situation was unknown to me and I'm not even certain if she is full blood nosed pitbull or mixed. I wanted to keep her but I can not afford the medical care that is required to keep her alive. I'm seeking a family or rescue group that can get her the medical care needed and help her gain weight so she can have a healthy and happy life. She has had pups I was told sometime last December. The woman I got her from has been very vague. Please anybody that can take her and provide for her would be saints in my heart and mind.

    Great dog. Can't keep, my other pit is alpha and gets jealous and starts fights with Dido. DIDO has been in a shelter twice and came back as a stray, people never reclaimed him. I work at shelter. HE originally was my dog. He's was showing signs of shelter shock, so I tried to bring him home again my other dog attacked him again after 3 weeks. Dido is great with female dogs, cats, kids, people. He's housebroken, a little high energy, but sits nice at door to go for walk then bolts and then calms down right away and walks awesome on leash.

    I rescued Simba after he was hit by a car. The owner walked away. He has had major surgery and has been very loving to everyone that has come near him. However, last night he growled at my mom. She has been helping me care for him. I can no longer take care of him myself because he has had a pelvic break and he needs a lot of care. He has shown so much love that I'm hoping someone with pit experience can nurture him back to health and place him in a loving forever home. Thank you

    Wrigley was rescued from the local shelter just over 5 years ago. He is an extremely sweet and loving dog, but has crippling separation anxiety. Unfortunately, we cannot be home often enough to meet his needs and he has been very destructive to our home. We can no longer afford to keep him in our house, and are looking for a better situation for him. He would be a wonderful companion for someone who works from home or is retired. When we're home he just loves to lay by our feet. He is not big on playing with toys, he just likes to chew on Nylabones. He does not crate well and has injured himself in cages. Unfortunately, we need to find a new ... (Read More)home for him ASAP as we can no longer afford to keep repairing the damages to our home. If we do not find a new home for him within a week, we are going to have to take him back to the shelter (where they will probably euthanize him)- we absolutely do NOT want to do this, but we are out of options and our financial situation is not allowing for us to continue keeping him here. If you are looking for a loving companion and are home most of the time, please consider becoming Wrigley's new doggie parent! Other note: he is very strong and likes to lean on people, so he would not be good for anyone who has balance/stability issues. (Less)

Most dogs she does not bark at. However, i do not own another dog and do not know how she would act if around another one all the time. She needs a new forever home due to me moving and i am unable to take her with me. She has slight medical problems. She is allergic to pollen which means, She has to take benadryl one or two times daily. She has a topical spray for any rashes that may occur from the allergies and she has ear drops for any yeast infections that may occur due to ... (Read More)the allergies. She is chipped and spayed. She is a bit overweight as my work schedule does not permit me to have as much exercise time with her. Her rabies shot is up to date and does not expire until October of next year. She is however due for her yearly vaccination. She is a sweet lounge around the house dog. But she loves to go on walks and bike rides with you.

Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This Pitbull was in a situation of being dropped off at a shelter so I said I would take her to foster her until they could find her a home. They never really got back to me so that is why we are here:). I believe she is just a Pit Bull I cannot verify that but she seems to be and my vet thinks so too. SOOO SWEET just has a few little ticks that with some time and patience could be worked out. She is very smart I have been able to teach her things very quickly. Her first home was at 5 wks someone had left the litter on a street corner at 4 wks. The family that adopted her at 5 wks was NOT good. The male adult in the household was a heavy ... (Read More)drinker and was VERY hard on her. She had a bladder infection and couldnt hold it and he would beat her every time she went potty. When I got her she still had the bladder infection and was so sad everytime she went potty even when it was outside and i would be praising her for going. She is very emotional and VERY caring. The only thing I have real concern about right now is I have a 5 yr old daughter and she really loves her but bc of her past I dont feel safe leaving her alone with her. If she runs she gets VERY excited and has fallen and gotten a bit funny about it. Her only bad habit is jumping NO MATTER what i have tried she just keeps doing it its like a 'I'm sorry' kinda thing and the more you try to reprimand or correct she does it more like she cant help herself. I now just say down and dont interact or pet at all until shes down. Seems to be getting better. You can see she understands just very apologetic all the time. I have an old 14 yr old Golden mix that she has shown to be dominant over but not a good judge becuase of her age i feel like if there was another well behaved confident dog that was good with other dogs she would respect. I dont know that for sure so maybe better without other animals. When she was young she was brought up with other dogs and cats. She went after my cat once but stopped chasing him as soon as I called her. Definitely needs a home with someone that has experience with breeds like her kind because she would make an awesome, caring, loving companion. I just do not have the time I have 4 kids a horse rescue and everything that goes with that. She NEEDS to have the time and I believe she will make an AWESOME dog/life-long friend. (Less)

    **Benny was abandoned and will need to go to a shelter if a home for him isn't found** From finder: I found a pitbull mix in my hallway at one of my properties. Based on what my tenant said the neighborhood kids were throwing rocks at him and abusing him. As if that wasn't enough his owners who were the neighbors moved away this past weekend and purposely left this sweet boy behind. I couldn't bring myself to put him back on the streets or take him to a shelter where he would potentially be put down so I took him to the hospital. They checked for a microchip but he didn't have one and they were kind enough to give him some flea ... (Read More)medication, food and a nice bath. We tried to find a rescue group or someone to take him in for the time being but we've had no luck. My sister is being kind enough to let me keep him in her insulated garage until we figure something out. His basic necessities are covered, but he can't live in a garage forever, and we know he deserves so much more than this. I have emailed and called several rescue organizations but they are either full to capacity or have told me that they need to rescue him from a shelter. I am truly at a loss and don't know who else to contact at this point.

We are not sure how she is with other dogs. we have a small dog and they have been aggressive with each a few times. she has not been around children so we are not sure how shes is with them. We feel she would do best in a home with no children and no other dogs.

Pit Bull    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 

    Niko is a sweet boy. Loves all dogs he's met and lives in a home with 2 other dogs. He doesn't pay much attention to our cat. We had him neutered in April 2016. He has recently become aggressive when trying to get him off the couch or bed or to go in his box. He will growl and turn his head as if he would bite. I'm sure this can be fixed with training. I do not have time for that. I have 4 kids and work. Other than that issue he is a great boy! Any questions please get ahold of me via email or call. Thank you!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Reveille was rescued as an extremely malnourished and abused puppy. He was severely neglected and developed issues from starvation, mange and parasites. He also was very fearful of humans. Reveille is now socialized and is good with most dogs. He is too rough with cats nowadays so his new home needs to be dog only! He is playful, crate trained, and has been fixed, chipped and vaccinated recently against rabies. Reveille will do best in a home that is active and enjoys taking him to do things.

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Cheeba is 3 1/2 years old. She is loving, great with kids and adults. She lost her sister earlier this year but played well with her when they met at nine months. She is territorial at times, she plays with our neighbors dogs and children. She swears she can be a lap dog and gives you nothing but kisses. She is kennel trained and is trained she will let you know when she has to go to the bathroom. Cheeba has to find a good home due to discrepancies at owners expense. It breaks my heart to even go to this point but I want to know she is going to a good home rather than sit in a shelter. She knows tricks and listens very well.

     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. Gravel was found as a stray in Chicago. I was out of town. Against my better judgment, my roommate brought him to our house instead of the shelter. I drive a truck over the road and don't have time for him. My roommate is disabled and can't take him on long walks. He needs a family that will train him an give him lots of exercise.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 

    **BLUE IS AT A HIGH KILL SHELTER AND NEEDS A FOSTER OR ADOPTER TO SAVE HIS LIFE.** Must be within a couple hours of Chicago to help. Age approx. 1 yr. What a sad, sad story. Blue is a friendly boy that was brought in by the police. They said he has been living in a park and being cared for by the children that visit the park. The kids said they saw him being abandoned by his owners. The even said the owners even came back the following day after abandoning him as they forgot to remove his collar and ID tag as they didn't want the dog being traced back to them! The kids loved him so much that the police tried to find Blue a new home with ... (Read More)someone in the neighborhood; however, somehow Blue ended up back at the park! So they had to bring Blue in as they can't have him living in the park. Blue is noted to get along with kids of all ages and did really well living with another female dog. He loves being pet and is just a really sweet young boy. Had no problem petting him all over. He didn't seem to be putting much weight on his back leg; however, it didn't seem to be bothering him. The cops that brought him in are trying really hard to find him a foster and rescue. Everyone that meets him loves him! (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Surely there is someone/ a family out there for this sweet boy! Simba was rescued from a horrible situation where he was used for breeding, then dumped. He is 6 years young, handsome, obedient, walks well on a leash, great with people of all ages, housebroken, fixed, vetted, microchipped, and has lots of love & loyalty to give to the right person/family. Simba needs a dogless home with an experienced handler as Simba was never socialized with other dogs. He needs someone willing to put in some time and patience to work with him so that he can become the balanced dog he was meant to be.

    SIMBA HAS UNTIL AUGUST 15TH TO FIND A FOSTER OR ADOPTER, OR HE WILL BE SURRENDERED TO CHICAGO ANIMAL CARE & CONTROL. PLEASE HELP! I cannot afford to keep him in boarding indefinitely, and since no area rescues are able to help, and nobody has stepped up that is able to suitably foster or adopt him, I am forced to use the last resort option of surrendering him to an open-access shelter. I didn't want it to come to this, and resign him to an uncertain fate- which includes euthanasia- but I am out of options. Simba is 6 years old, fixed, vetted, microchipped, housebroken, great with people of all ages, and needs to be the only animal in ... (Read More)the home.
