While in the yard, a baby squirrel fell out of tree and Pepper cleaned the squirrel off, very gentle. She knows some basic commands, is relatively good on a leash, eager to learn and to ...

Pit Bull Mix    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, snuggly 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 cuddle 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 loves to explore. She is very responsive and loves to learn new things. She already knows the commands sit, down, paw, roll-over and stay. She also enjoys 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 loves loves loves people, but she was never socialized with other animals. So, we are looking for a home with no other pets. 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. But, if you just cross the street when you see another dog approaching, that behavior is not a big deal. She's really a home-body happy to love her family and stick to her own fenced-in yard. Swifty is extremely healthy, spayed, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested, and up-to-date on vaccines. To meet and possibly adopt her, please contact her adoption counselor Kat at kbudrean@hotmail.com to meet her. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. She comes complete with professional training to help her transition to her new home. She is currently being fostered in the Shorewood/Joliet, Illinois area. But she can travel up to two hour's distance to meet her potential approved adopter! (Less)

     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. This amazing little angel was brought to my job. I work downtown at a doggy daycare. Everyone thought she was adorable but no one could take her home to keep her until she found a good, healthy family home to go to.So I took her to a nearby vet to get scanned and she has no microchip to scan. I have had her at my apartment for a week now and no one has claimed her. Im looking to get her a really good family whose willing to look after her and make sure she's safe. She's truly an angel.

    I am easy out, yet kind of reserved. Out in the yard, I keep my distance. When I loosen up a bit, you can touch me all over. I do get silly, but don't show that side for very long. I know sit and take treats gently. I am a treat snob. I did not like Orion. My hackles were up. I had an ok bark and reaction at first, but then my bark and attitude changed.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I am very scared in my kennel. I did not show teeth or growl but dodged the lead so you may have to lasso me. I am scared in the kennel room and will pancake on my way out and walk low to the ground. Once outside I will start to open up. Once I'm used to you, I allow touch all over but make sure I can see you. I got scared of loud noises and some objects too. I know sit and loved zooming around the yard with a toy once comfortable. I needed a gentle push back into my kennel.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    She is very scared and timid. Will avoid the leash but did not snap, growl or show teeth while getting it on her. Once looped she will come out. If you want her to have be able to run a bit in the yard, I'd suggest tying a second lead to the handle of the first. She is very confused. Go slow with her and give her space. She will eventually come for a moment of attention before running away again. Was not interested in treats or toys. Is not ready to answer to commands yet. Met Diesel at the fence and both wanted to play. Then he barked and she ran back away from the fence. But did come forward again to sniff and play now him again.

    Spunky, happy-go-lucky Laurel is looking to bring sunshine into your life! She's a 2 year old Visla mix who is a true medium size dog at 40 pounds. She arrived at ACL as a stray, but it was clear from the first moment that she was someone's beloved pet at some point - she's just too sweet! Laurel loves people and is happy to give kisses all day long. She has a strong sense of smell, and she loves to follow her nose. That tendency plus her eager interest in squirrels suggest maybe she's mixed with a beagle! Laurel is gentle and loving, so she would do well with kids of all ages. She needs a little bit of work so she doesn't get too excited ... (Read More)about small animals while she's on her walks, but Laurel is super smart and eager to learn more. With a loving family, perhaps with another dog, she can learn anything you want to teach her! Just promise to love her at the same time! (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

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

    Phoebe is an adorable, friendly, athletic and snugly, one-year-old, 50-pound female pit bull terrier looking for a loving guardian. Phoebe adores all people and loves sleeping in bed with her foster family. She can play ball for hours and even falls asleep with a ball in her mouth. Phoebe goes to doggie daycare where she gets along best with large male dogs. She typically does not do well with female dogs, small dogs or cats. She does have a tendency to guard, so she'd be easiest as the one and only pet in the home. She's currently living with three dogs, but she can be best managed with an easy-going male dog. She is housebroken and ... (Read More)well-behaved in the home. She is working on her manners, but knows basic commands like sit and loves rides in the car. She loves walks on leash but she's reactive to other dogs, so she's best in a less congested area. Phoebe is very healthy, spayed, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, heartworm-tested and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee of $300 benefits the rescued pets of MCP Rescue. To meet and possibly adopt Phoebe, please fill out the adoption application at http://mcprescue.org/adoption-application/ and follow up by contacting her foster mom Marcy with any questions at TLR.thelivingroom@gmail.com She is currently being fostered in Chicago's Albany Park neighborhood.

    Happy happy joy joy - it's Happy! You can't help but smile when you hang out with this big oaf - he wins over even the coolest head. Happy is a two year old pit bull mix with a gorgeous copper coat and a huge heart. He came to ACL as a stray, and we noticed right away how similar he looks to another of our pups, Smiley! Maybe they're brothers from another mother. Like Smiley, Happy is a strong, exuberant dog who loves to be outside and with people. His favorite thing in the world is laying in the sun, chewing on a tough chew toy while his favorite people scratch his back. A perfect life! Happy is a bit unmannered, and he'd definitely benefit ... (Read More)from a class or two to teach him the best way to be a pet. He's housetrained and very sweet - Happy is super eager to please, so if you can tell him what you want, he'll do it! At this point, he's a bit too dominant with other dogs, but we suspect that after a few months in an experienced, stable home, Happy will chill and learn to enjoy the right canine company. Because of his size and strength, he'll do best with kids 10 and up. No cats please! (Less)

    I am the senior gent of the shelter. I am around 10yrs old. Go slow with me, I can be hand shy. I know sit and down, but sit is sometimes hard for me so I lay down.

As you can see, I am on the skinny side. Even though I am on the older side, I still have pep in my step and like to play ball. I am scared of cats and need a proper intro to other dogs.

Drake is almost 4 years old, and he's got all those adult dog behaviors on lock - he's housetrained, active but mellows out, and friendly with people big and small after a proper introduction. He's a very vocal player, so it takes a bit of getting used ... (Read More)to when he whines and growls while tossing his toy around.

He is not comfortable with other dogs and cats, and he can be reactive towards other animals on leash. Because of this, Drake will have to be a solo dog for life, but his good temper and playful spirit are more than enough love for the right family. He'll do best in a smaller home with lots of dog experience and no children. Drake would love someone to be his leader and show him how great life can be outside of the shelter. If you're interested in meeting Drake, please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org for more info! (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    All Suzie wants for Christmas is a real home who will love and care for her forever! Suzie was in a high kill shelter and out of time. She had been picked up as a stray and was not claimed. Beautiful 55 pound, happy, girl about 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 leave her ... (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.

    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting.
