Rescue Me ID: 15-01-22-00606Diezel (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Malnourished,
 Abused/Neglected 

    Diezel is a 2 year old male, sweet, loving big baby. He weighs approx 50-6 lbs and is a very good dog. He does have some separation anxiety,and loves lots of attention. He is the PERFECT dog for someone who LIVES alone or a couple.He is not violent or aggressive, gets along with cats,puppies and female dog's, and can get along with adult males unless they are aggressive, then Diesel will react. Diesel is in an emergency situation. Previously, Diesel has been my best friend, buddy and protector. On January 1st I arrived home after working 18 hours to find that the entire electrical board in my house had blown, leaving lights in only one ... (Read More)room in the house and no power to the plugs at all, along with this the house lost it's heating system as well, so my home was freezing and dark.My first reaction was to get Diesel somewhere warm and safe, but with no one immediately taking to the idea of having a pit bull in their house. For the next several days I slept in a friend's van with Diesel, we strung an electrical cord out to the van and plugged in heaters. I knew Diesel hated to be left alone, so I slept in the van with him. After several say some of my son's bosses at his work volunteered to take Diesel in and take care of him until either we found a solution to the electrical problem in our house of we found him a forever home. Just two weeks later, ( a couple days ago) I received a phone call from the Lake County Sheriff's animal control and adoption center telling me they had found Diesel on an abandoned property curled up in an old dog house freezing and starving to death. He was emaciated with bones protruding and I was shocked and sickened by what I was hearing. How could someone we knew and trusted who had promised to take care of my buddy simply abandon him and leave him to die? I did not and still don't understand. I have currently raised some money in order to pick Diesel up and pay the required fees for his release. Because my home is beyond repair at this point - I simply do not have the thousands of dollars needed to fix everything. I myself am struggling on a day to day basis to find places to stay, and Diesel deserves a good,l loving home where he is well taken care of and given the best life he deserves. I am seeking either a temporary foster home for him or a forever home.I am desperate for him. His demeanor at the moment according to volunteers at the Lake County animal control is that he's eating, but he seems sad. He's missing me and doesn't understand that this wasn't his fault, he did nothing wrong, and I know he thinks I just abandoned him. What I thought in the beginning that I was helping to keep him safe and warm turned into a neglectful nightmare, I can't imagine how he felt, freezing cold day in and day out, hungry and starving day in and day out. I am so sick and heart broken, I just want to bring my baby back where he belongs and find him a warm, caring and loving place to go. If ANYONE can help, either temporarily or permanently, please please PLEASE contact me asap... (Less)

Moxie knows the commands 'sit' and 'stay' and takes treats gently from your fingers. She is an easy-going and fun companion. She is crate-trained and housebroken. She loves pouncing on balls and squeaky toys and playing fetch in the yard. She is an excellent jogging companion and great on leash (unless she sees a squirrel). She has been taking training classes with her foster parents and has proven to be a quick learner who is very happy to please. She's full of ... (Read More)wiggles, wags, snuggles and kisses. While she could probably share a home with a mellow male dog about her size, she may be best the one and only pet in the home - certainly no cats or other small animals. She would adore a home with a yard to run, get her energy out, and play fetch in. She is not a doggie day care or dog park kind of dog.

    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 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)

    My name is Percy. I am a Presa Canario/ Pit mix. I am about a year old and weigh 53lbs. I was taken in to an open access municipal animal control. I was pretty banged up. Luckily some volunteers at the shelter took the time to notice me. I was emaciated, and I had two large nasty burns on my hips, badly cropped ears with dried blood and fly bites all over. They looked past my appearance and saw me for the good doggie that I am. I am very affectionate and I like to rest my head on your leg. I do like to lean on you if you would let me. I have a lot of puppy energy but I am learning to walk better on leash. I love to play fetch and was given ... (Read More)the opportunity join playgroup with other dogs. I respond well to hand signals and will look to you for instruction. I am house broken and crate trained. I also love kids, but my foster mommy thinks that I would do better with older kids because my excitement might knock down little ones. I would require a high fenced in yard if a yard is available. An angel sent me to Making a Difference Rescue. Will you watch over me too? 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.

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
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.

    Milo is such a great dog, he loves all the dogs he meets and loves to be pet. He will wag his tail like crazy when someone heads his way. Milo really craves human interaction and company. He is content just to sit at your feet and he will wait by the door for you. He needs a home with lots of attention, and he would love to be with another dog. He does chase cats, I'm not sure if he would outgrow that or not. You can really see the cattle dog in him, his whole back is full of speckles which isn't clearly pictured. His legs and tail also have black and brown speckles. He is such a sweetheart.

Please keep in mind that I am only a year old so I know I still have a lot to learn about manners and such so I need to be in a furever home that can be devoted to teaching how I can be the bestest boy ever!

Destiny was rescued after surviving a neglectful and abusive puppyhood. She is currently living in a foster home with two Great Danes who she loves to herd, play with and chase. After acclimating to her foster home she has proven mild-mannered and calm. However, she does carry with her the residual fears from her traumatized youth. She is incredibly loving and devoted to her foster dad, and seeks out his attention and approval. She is also very protective of him. Destiny is housebroken and kennel-trained. ... (Read More)Destiny is sometimes nervous in new situations and when meeting new people. However, she's a smart girl who can acclimate if given time and patience. Destiny is also nervous meeting new dogs and requires a gradual introduction; she does best with dogs her size and larger. She does not do well with small dogs, cats, rabbits, etc. Like most dogs, Destiny loves routine '| her morning belly rubs, playing with her favorite Great Dane friend and going for walks. She gets nervous with change. So, Destiny is looking for an experienced and patient dog-lover preferably with another large dog to give her the consistency and calm life in which to thrive.

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.

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.
