    Asti is a VERY friendly and loving dog! I hate to have to get rid of her but she is too dominate to live in a house with ANY other animals and I have another pit who is 13 years old. They get along for the most part but have fought 4 or 5 times in the 6 years I have had her. She deserves a loving home where she is the ONLY fur baby.

    Diesel is a blue nose pit bull. He weighs about 65 pounds. He is VERY obedient. He loves car rides,and playing fetch. He's such a big lover! He does not bark excessively and I can leave my house without worrying about him chewing up anything or tearing the place apart (unlike my other pit bulls) I took him in for my sons friend because they moved and couldn't take him with. They were trying to avoid the shelter as am I. In my town in only allowed 3 dogs and my 'lovely' neighbor decided to call the cops on us and tell them we now had 4 dogs. All because she doesn't like pit bulls. They threatened to take him and fine me if I couldn't find him ... (Read More)a home in three days. Well its been 5 days now and its difficult to keep hiding him. My heart is broken at the thought of him leaving and ending up in a shelter. I have asked so many people and no one will take him. Idk what else to do. He is very truly a great loyal and loving dog. He is better behaved than our other pitties. Only problem with him is he thinks he's a lap dog but he's just way to big and heavy for that I'm only 5 ft1 and 115 pnds so I kinda disappear she he hops up on my lap, or on me when I'm sleeping in bed lol.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Sally. She was in need of rescue as it appeared she was injured. After an evaluation at the Hinsdale Animal Hospital, it was discovered that her leg/paw injury was not acute at all, rather it was an old injury that has healed in a manner that does not allow proper range of motion of Sally's right front leg. It was determined that her injury was as a result of a gun shot which shattered her elbow some time ago and was not treated. In fact, there are still bullet fragments visible on xray in her surrounding tissue. So, there is no surgical intervention required and she seems to have no problem at all getting around with 3 strong legs. ...

    Bambi is the most adorable 3 year old pocket pittie! She loves playing with other dogs, and she always gives great, respectful signals. Bambi came into the shelter as an extremely emaciated stray. We worked with her to get back to a healthy weight and to develop a positive relationship with food - she had been starved for so long that she didn't understand that she would be fed from now on. Bambi loves walks, and she is the most attentive, loyal dog out there. She's extremely smart, and her eagerness to please her people makes her super trainable. Bambi does have some quirks from her rough early life, so she'll need an experienced owner who ... (Read More)can give her patience and help her work through some insecurities.

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Sterling, a 1 year old male American Pit Bull Terrier.

Sterling is an absolute cuddle bug and thrives on human attention. He is currently very thin, but he (and we) are working to change that. Once he is up to his ideal weight, Sterling will probably be considered a mini pit, topping out at around 35 pounds. Sterling has so much love to give. His minimum adoption donation is $145.

    Bubba was a friends dog who lost their home to a fire. I rescued Bubba a little over a year and half ago. I had a female pit and a cat. He's adjusted fine with both of them. He's very hard headed and thinks he is the boss sometimes. He is very aggressive to anyone he does not recognize. He's had a very sheltered life and has little social skills. He's full of energy and needs daily activities which I don't have the time nor space since I'm in the middle of moving. He's very strong willed, and a lover to his family and is so much more than a pet. He loves chew toys and he takes baths like a champ. I'm moving and his original owner seems ...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Marley is a very sensitive, sweet, yet nervous, seven-year-old, 63-pound, female Pit Bull Terrier/Beagle-Mix looking for a loving guardian. Marley was rescued as an eight-month-old puppy when her human was a sophomore in college. She was skin and bones, and very skittish at the time. She was then raised with two Pomeranians and a Yorkie, so she is good with other dogs of all shapes and sizes after initial introduction. She has also lived with cats in the past. She is a smart dog, but very nervous and sensitive at first so she needs time to warm up. So she is looking for a very patient human to take her under their wing. Marley has been ... (Read More)trained to stay off furniture except her own dog bed. She knows the command sit and down, and is protective of her home and family. She is perfectly housebroken and crate-trained. Sadly, her human recently married and his wife is allergic to Marley so she needs to find a new loving home. When you first meet Marley, she will probably bark, but she is not aggressive, just fearful. Marley is very healthy, de-wormed, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, and heartworm-tested. She did have knee surgery a few years ago and sometimes struggles with stairs. If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting her, please contact Linda at lindagarard@gmail.com or Ted at tedgarard@gmail.com or 847-975-7054. Her adoption fee of $100 benefits rescued pets. She is currently living in Northfield, Illinois. (Less)

She LOVES people and is GREAT with kids of all ages. She came from an active household with kids and teenagers coming and going on a regular basis: all were her friends!

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Pops is a fun-loving, 60-pound, three-year-old, skinny and strong, male, chocolate and vanilla pit bull-mix looking for a loving guardian. He is currently living in a foster home with a German Shepherd and Chihuahua with whom he gets along beautifully. Pops plays in play groups but gets a little nervous around male dogs that are much larger than himself. Pops also loves chew his toys and bones. After his exercise, he is relaxed and low-key in the home. Pops is a extremely responsive, highly trainable, food-motivated and smart guy who has quickly learned the commands: sit, down, touch, salute and paw. He looks right into your eyes with his ... (Read More)gorgeous amber eyes for direction. He is housebroken and crate-trained. Pops landed at Chicago Animal Care and Control when his human went to prison. It was Pops' lucky break. The poor guy appeared to have lived as the only dog in the home but had so many bite marks, scars and fly bites; it's hard to say what he endured. He also had an embedded collar, so he has a furless ring that goes right around his neck. While he may have some marks and physical scars, he has no emotional scars from his past. He lets anyone touch him anywhere. He's wonderful with everyone. In fact, he squeals with delight when you scratch his butt. Otherwise he is a surprisingly quiet dog who loves to snuggle. Pops would do beautifully in a home with another dog or as the only dog if he got out to play regularly. He will do best without cats in the home. If you are interested in adopting Pops please contact Diana at diana@windycitybootcamp.com or 773-899-1960. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. He is healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm tested. (Less)

After 5 months on the adoption floor his time was up and the volunteers begged us to take him. Since we didn't have a spot for him at the time, one of our cat fosters volunteered to take him in until we found a place. He was in that home with cats, dogs and teenagers and did great.

    Wiggles (left) is pitt/greyhound mix. Size and shape of greyhound (and as fast), but heavier and you can see the pitt in her face. She loves to catch mice, and hears a squeak and goes nuts to find it. Loves squeak toys, but they don't last long. Found her loose 2 years ago. Loves playing ball, and tug of war. Lovey dovey stuff. Will lick your face soaked. Gets all wiggles when excited and happy. Even gets to hopping up and down all four legs. Its hilarious. BUTTTTTT!!! she gets very aggressive towards other large dogs at times. I've had to break up 9 bad fights in 3 years between these two. Thankfully without serious injury to ... (Read More)either of them. Lola, on the right, is younger, more lovey-dovey, and very playful and attention seeking. Really loves chewing noisy plastic bottles or milk jugs. (keeps the shoes left alone) LOL Ane really loves tug of war and fetch with a ball. Both are house trained and sit on command. As well as can shake. They each love their milkbones as a reward for good behavior or actions. Lola was tied to a doorknob for 9 months, malnourished and eating her own feces when I found her. Now, because of Wiggles aggressiveness, Lola has become more aggressive which I hope will pass. Lola does not hurt the cat, nor does she bother smaller dogs (our Chihuahua) She plays well and loves to roughhouse wrestle. These two are too much to handle for my wife and I and need a good home for their selves, without any other large dog. If I cannot find them a home soon, I'm afraid I will have to call the pound. I really love these two girls,but just cant handle their energy together. (Less)

She needs help urinating - just needs her bladder expressed 3-4 times per day - it's very easy to do. Kiki is loved by all what meet her. She was born with this disability so she has no idea that anything is wrong. She is fully vetted, great with other dogs and cats. She is the bell of the ball - loves attention.

He is fully vetted, housebroken, great with dogs and loves people. He's not big on exercise :) he would be much happier snuggled in you lap watching tv. He has been in a wonderful foster home for over 6 months, it's time he finds a permanent family of his own.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed 

    Coco was found in an abandoned building. She was pretty sick and there was evidence that she had puppies but they were gone by the time she was found. She has since been fully vetted, had some obedience training and lived with a family until recently. Sadly their dog kept attacking Coco, we pulled her the minute we found out. Despite her rough past, this girl is super sweet. She loves people and has lots of love to give. At this time we would like to find a home with an older, calm dog or no dog at all - this poor girl has been through enough hell and deserves a home and family that will shower her with love. Contract and home visit required.

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Please Share '| Elmhurst, IL - Immediate Help Needed '| Adopt / Foster / Rescue Chelsea the Tiny Pit Bull Terrier Chelsea is a beautiful and very sweet, 35-pound, five-year-old, female, pit bull terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. She is a surprisingly happy girl whose tail is always wagging. She adores being pet and is full of loving kisses. She is housebroken and quietly crate-trained; she has an auto poop and pee as soon as she gets in the yard '| something all dog parents appreciate in winter! She has been going through training since she's been rescued and she knows the command sit, and takes treats nicely from your ... (Read More)fingers. She's extremely responsive to people and very treat-motivated. However, she'd do best in a home as the one and only pet. Chelsea is being boarded at the Elmhurst Animal Medical Hospital and would love to get out of a cage and into a loving home. Rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control, Chelsea had been found living alone in an abandoned house on the West side of Chicago in the bitter cold of winter. Thanks to Realtors to the Rescue, she was scooped up to safety. The poor girl was scarred, emaciated, full of worms, and had clearly been used for breeding. Chelsea is a funny dog in both personality and in physique. Her limbs and joints are malformed so she has a bow-legged bulldog stance on a tiny pit bull-like body. But Chelsea is anything but immobile. She is energetic and wiggly. She does get a bit wobbly at times. Last Thanksgiving, Chelsea suffered a slipped disc in her lower spine. After a round of steroids, pain meds and muscle relaxers, Chelsea bounced back nicely. She is now healthy, spayed, de-wormed, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccines, and heartworm-tested. To meet and possibly foster, adopt, rescue or support her, please contact Suzy at sthomas4419@gmail.com or 312-543-3884. Her adoption fee of $75 benefits rescued pets. She is being fostered in Elmhurst, Illinois. Professional training and assistance with future medical needs will be included with her adoption. Please help Realtors to the Rescue support Chelsea's $2,500 training and medical care fund by visiting http://www.gofundme.com/mhiv40 This will help pay off her medical bills and help her adopter/rescuer/foster pay for additional training and medical care.

    Max is a sweet, snugly and chill, four-year-old, 46-pound, male black and white Pit Bull Terrier/Lab-mix looking for a loving guardian. Max's best friend in his foster home is a nine-year-old boy whose bed he shares each night. He's an amazing and affectionate dog who is full of tail wags and wiggles. He thinks he's a lap dog. Max is well-trained and knows the commands sit, down and paw. Max is perfectly housebroken and crate trained. His foster family crates him when he is not supervised as he still likes to chew on items like socks and underware. He has no anxiety issues; he can deal with fireworks, revving motorcycles, and other loud ... (Read More)noises. But, he does have a strong prey drive so he needs a home without cats or other small animals. While he gets along with other dogs for the most part, he does resource guard items from other dogs (bones, toys, or food). So, ideally he would be best as the one and only pet in the home. Max is being fostered in Chicago's Portage Park neighborhood. Max is extremely healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested.

Honey would make a wonderful family dog - she's a born nurturer and would love to live with kids or people overflowing with affection and attention. Honey likes other dogs her size, but she can be a rowdy play partner, so she would need another dog with a similar rough and tumble play style. She really is a gem of a dog who hasn't had the life she deserves - can you fix that for her?

Like her cheerful, dog-loving namesake, this Rachel Ray brings joy and enthusiasm to all of her activities, whether it's walks to the park, romping in the yard, squirrel-watching, playing with toys, or cuddling up with you in front of the TV. And it goes without saying that she enjoys a good meal.

She is housebroken - however, if you're gone over eight hours, she will need a dog-walker. Rachel tends to get along best with gentle and mellow dogs smaller than herself. She is sometimes nervous around larger dogs so she's not a dog park or doggie daycare kind of girl. She's already beautifully trained; she knows sit, down and paw, and she takes treats gently from your fingers. She'd love to continue her formal education with her new family!

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    Meet Bear a 2yr old Red Nose Pit Bull with beautiful Caramel eyes. He came to us as a temporary fostering situation but has since been abandoned and as much as I would LOVE to keep him I have a 10yr old Yorkie who terrorizes him and constantly attacks him which has caused poor Bear anxiety. We have discovered that he also has separation anxiety and it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY that his new home has another dog to keep him company or someone who will be home the majority of the day. He is house broken but sometimes has a few accidents that are probably caused by the anxiety & stress that my Yorkie gives him, otherwise he goes outside. He loves ... (Read More)other dogs and never barks at them when on his walks, he loves to socialize and meet new friends both human and doggie. He also gets along well with cats, as his previous companion was a cat. Bear needs to find a forever home preferably with someone who has another doggie that won't snip at him but rather play with him and offer him companionship. He does better when someone is home to keep him company thanks to his new found anxiety. He is a gentle loving creature who LOVES to cuddle. We would love to see him go to someone who is willing to love, care and protect him forever. He has been through enough stress with being abandoned by his first family who became displaced and could no longer care for him as well as the added stress of being attacked by our Yorkie. He walks great on a leash with his pinch collar, he knows 'sit', 'off', 'cage', 'come', 'how to give you Five', he knows paws (meaning his paws need to be wiped from being outside) and we're working on lie down. I have several other pics I am willing to e-mail you if interested and I am more than willing to have a meet and greet and answer any questions you may have. He currently weighs 68lbs and he's strong and sleek. He has such a gentle and submissive demeanor but will perk right up when you give him a squeaky toy. I would hate to have to give him to a shelter as all the non-kill ones I have found are not currently taking any more dogs. I am hoping this site will help Bear find his perfect family as he is practically a perfect dog! Please e-mail me if interested and for more photos. (Less)

He is approximately 1 1/2 yrs old and was surrendered to a kill shelter in KY.

He will take food gently from your hand, gives kisses for free and will follows you throughout the house. He rides well in a car and will make someone a wonderful, loyal companion. Casper does not like to be crated but since he is so well behaved his foster mom has not had to crate him. Casper suffers from the bully breed reputation%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD|%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD|and has received very few inquiries%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD|.

    Ginger is a gorgeous 18 month old ridgeback/pit bull/hound mix with a beautiful red coat. She's a gentle, mellow girl who wags her tail with her whole body when she sees people! Ginger came to us as a stray, and when no one claimed her, we knew we had won the lottery! Ginger is a constant companion type of dog, happy to sit at your feet and cuddle with you. She likes hikes in the forest preserve and long walks. Ginger is good with some dogs - it depends on the chemistry! Young, active children make her a little nervous, but she would be great as a buddy for an older child. Ginger hates cats, so don't even get her started on that!

Beautiful 55 pound, happy, girl about 2 to 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 ... (Read More)leave her 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 but is bossy with some of the female dogs. 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's phone number you use currently or in the past is required to adopt for a reference. We have 30 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)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Max. He may be the most silly and affectionate dog that we've ever met. He's a petite little guy. He weighs 50 lbs. and is around 2-3 years old. If you're a gardener, you can be sure that your yard will never be infested with feral cats, squirrels or rabbits. He loves to play in the mud...but never fear, he's figured out how to jump into the tub on his own free will to have his feet and muzzle cleaned. If you have kids...he will easily fit in. He's a great disciplinarian. He will teach your kids to pick up after themselves quickly if they cherish their balls, legos, socks and underwear. No mouthiness from this one...just too many ... (Read More)slobbery kisses. He loves to sleep in and insists on spooning you in bed. He's mastered the art of playing dead and will not budge from his spot until you physically move him. He is quite the charmer and fancies himself a lap dog. Just like a baby, he will wrap his arms around your neck and schnooze on your shoulder. Max also loves to go running with his person and will keep up with speed and match strides for slow down periods. He does very well meeting strangers. He has no anxiety, noise or separation issues. He's very low maintenance. He's house broken, neutered, HW negative and up to date on vaccinations and preventatives. He must be crated for his safety when left at home. He can not be in a home with cats or small rodents. He has an extremely high prey drive and the ability to jump over low gates and fences. Unless his forever home is in a condo setting where he will be walked daily, he will require a home that has a 6ft high privacy fence and he can never be left outside unattended. We have discovered that he will resource guard bricks and rocks. Although he can be easily distracted from these items through positive reinforcement, he will require a dog savvy person who is willing and able to work with this behavior. He can not have any bones. Max is located in Chicago. We ask that inquiries be within 30 miles of Chicago. Please remember we can not adopt out of state because a home visit is a requirement.We require an at home evaluation and screening prior to adoption. We do this to ensure that our animals will go to safe forever homes. If you are interested in providing Max a forever home, please fill out our adoption survey here http://makingadifferencerescue.com/adoption-survey/ This will expedite your inquiry as we are not able to return phone calls or emails during business hours.

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-11-00261Thunder (male)

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)

    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.
