Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Jewel is...you guessed it...a GEM! She's a 4.5 month old American Bulldog/Pittie mix puppy who has only love and smiles for everyone she meets. Jewel was transferred to ACL from another shelter where she had arrived as a stray. Someone loved her once, though, because she adores everyone! Jewel is still a puppy, but she's excelling at housetraining and she learns commands like a pro. Jewel has happily fostered with young children and dogs - she loves them equally! She's at a great age to be introduced to cats, too. This little baby can do no wrong in our eyes - come meet her and see what we mean!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Tyrion! DOB 4/2/2015 Lab/ Pitbull Mix Tyrion 'Mr. T' is about a year old and weighs around 45 pounds. He's house trained, pretty laid back but plays with dogs and toys. He loves to be loved on, he is very snuggly. He's good on a leash. Tyrion came to the rescue with a previous leg injury. We have had it checked with several vets. It will need to be checked by our orthopedic specialist at a future date. Tyrion will let you know when his leg bothers him and some pain reliever helps to ease the pain on active days. Tyrion is talkative, and an early riser, but is learning to sleep in. He is crate trained.. He responds well to ... (Read More)commands, but has that youthful attention span, so further training would be beneficial for him. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

Personality: Average Temperament 

    HIGHLAND, IN (disregard Tinley Park location)- transport available within reasonable distance Though I can't mark him 'urgent' as his life is not in danger, I do consider Rizzo's situation urgent as his quality of life is extremely low. His owner's sister reports that Rizzo has been living almost 24/7 in a crate since her brother got him as a puppy. He is 1.5 years old. He is undersocialized with other dogs but has been good with the dogs he has been around, he's just super playful! Owner states he does kow his basic commands. Rizzo hasn't even been on a leash as owner just lets him out to use the bathroom and brings him right back in. ... (Read More)This dog has probably never gone on a walk in his entire life. No dog should live like this or with people who don't even want let alone value and love him. Please consider opening your home to this sweet boy so that he can live the life he deserves. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-02-05-00222Jolene (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

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

    Jolene, Jolene, Jolene...cue Dolly Parton's signature tune to a beautiful woman with power over men. Our girl Jolene may not be quite the heartbreaker that Dolly's Jolene was - she's not going to ruin anyone's family. She wants to join it! Jolene is a two year old pocket pittie mix who's high energy, high affection, and high play! Jolene came to ACL as a stray, and she spent some time in a great foster home. Her foster dad reports that she's housebroken, playful, very attentive and people-oriented, and VERY friendly! Jolene is a high energy dog who needs an active home to give her lots of exercise and attention. She hasn't had a lot of ... (Read More)training, so Jolene has the bad habit of punching you in the face with her nose when she wants to show you her love! She's very smart and responsive to training, however, so a family who can help redirect her exuberance in the right direction should have no trouble teaching her the things she needs to know. Jolene will be best in homes with children 12 years and up, and she can be barky when left alone, so a standalone home is a must. She is unfortunately not comfortable with other dogs - she likely has never met them until now. She'll do best as an only dog for an active home that wants a loving, attentive girl with spunk and sass coming out of her ears! (Less)

Blue is a happy-go-lucky boy. He knows basic commands and loves to play with toys. He needs people to go slow with him because he is excitable and can be jumpy. He also has some vision issues due to being cross-eyed. He can be startled when people come up to him on the side because he can't see them coming. For this reason, he probably shouldn't live with young kids who don't understand. Blue needs a special soul to take him in and be patient with ... (Read More)him. He's so worth it.

     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. She is an almost 5y/o pitmix,her birthday is February 25, who sadly I cannot keep with me anymore. She is shy at first but when she warms up, she becomes a huge baby. She's great with kids and adults. I wouldn't recommend with cats and some dogs. She is trained on a harness and she notifies you when she has to use the bathroom. I only want the best for my girl and to find a forever home that would give her as much love as I was able to.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Billy Ray was found as a stray; dumped in a forest preserve in Chicago back in March of 2015. Flyers were posted in the area he was found, and at Chicago Animal Care & Control. He was not wearing I.D. tags, and was not microchipped. After some time, with no inquiries or responses from possible owners, he was fixed and vaccinated and brought into a foster home. He was boarded at a vet clinic, initially, never dumped at CACC. Billy Ray is about 5 years old and is a 55 lbs blue/white Pit Bull. Billy Ray is housebroken, and good on a leash. He is crate trained, and does not particularly enjoy being crated due to his mild ... (Read More)separation anxiety, but he tolerates it. He has been left to roam the house for a few hours, on multiple occasions, when nobody was home, and there have been no accidents or destruction. He is great with people, and loves to snuggle, and be around his humans! He is good with cats, and is good with children that have been trained to interact properly with dogs. He can be dog selective/ dog reactive in certain circumstances, so it's best that his interactions with other dogs are supervised. For half a year he lived with multiple dogs and cats in a foster home with adults, without incident, however. Including Miley, the foster dog with whom he was found. Unfortunately, one of the two resident dogs became aggressive towards Billy Ray. For the safety of all the animals and humans, the foster dogs were placed in boarding. Per a consult with a dog trainer, sometimes a natural change in the dog pack dynamics occur after a few months, and the resident dog begins to feel threatened by the newcomer (a.k.a. Dominance Aggression), which was the case here. It was not the fault of either dog, and a very common occurrence. That being said, he is well socialized, and enjoys the dog park and dog beach, just use the normal amount of caution anyone should when bringing their dogs to the dog park, or meeting other dogs. He is not into toys too much, but is very treat motivated, and is a great listener. He knows 'sit'. He is highly trainable. Billy Ray deserves to be in a loving home, instead of boarding. He makes a wonderful couch companion, and loves to snuggle with you in bed! He will be your loyal & true best friend! More about Billy Ray: *House trained *Crate trained *Good on a leash *Good with people *Good with cats *Dog selective/ reactive (only in certain circumstances) *Mild separation anxiety (no trademark destruction of property) *Neutered *Vaccinated *Microchipped *Color: Gray *Ears: Natural/Uncropped *Tail: Long *Activity Level: Moderately Active *Has Basic Training *Owner Experience Needed: Breed *Shedding: Low *Grooming: Low *Indoor/outdoor: Indoor Only (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult


    **EXTREMELY URGENT- NEEDS FOSTER OR ADOPTER TO SAVE HER LIFE** From volunteer: Snowy, this gorgeous white girl was a confiscate for animal cruelty. Snowy is at least two years old, probably closer to three. I have known of her for two years and she was even a sweetie pie tied to a tree in a yard when i first met her two years ago. This time I was called by our building division in regards to a dog tied to a house they needed to make entry into. I walked up, did not recognize her, but she greeted me like an old friend by jumping up on me and almost giving me a hug. Finally she is safe with us and now looking for rescue.When she came in she ... (Read More)was great with female and male dogs. Right now she seems to be better with males and would recommend she goes with a male dog or be the only dog. Please know that all of these animals have limited amount of time. They received basic vaccinations (no rabies) and are wormed. All of these animals are at a city animal control and only have limited time to get out. They are located at North Chicago Animal Control in North Chicago, IL. It is located in Lake County. (Less)

    Lucy is a gorgeous, happy, energetic, sweet, playful and fun-loving, one-year-old, 48-pound, female Shepherd/Terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Lucy was dropped off at Chicago Animal Care and Control when her family could no longer keep her. She was petrified at the shelter. Luckily a foster for Famous Fido Rescue saw her and took her home. She is living in a foster home with a German Shepherd, a Pug, and three cats; she gets along with everyone beautifully. She is housebroken and crate-trained. She knows the commands sit, down and takes treats gently from your fingers. She also loves to play fetch and play with any toy. She ...

    We unfortunately are needing to rehome our 5 year old pit mix Gracie. She is current on shots and is spayed. We have two small children and our two year old is constantly pestering her. It is not fair to keep her in this situation and we do not want anything bad to come from it if she were to lash out at him. We just ask that whatever home she goes to that they do not have small children. She is a very loving dog. Her energy level when first meeting people is high, but she calms down after a while. She loves walks, car rides, and thinks she is a lap dog. She is on the smaller side for a pit. She is around 50lbs. She is good with most dogs ... (Read More)not sure how she would be around cats. Whoever adopts her we will be including almost 1 1/2 years worth of heartguard preventative and her dog bed and blanket.

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

    Billy Ray and Miley are a bonded pair of magnificent and loving pit bull terriers looking for a wonderful guardian together. These two beautiful dogs were abandoned in a forest preserve in the Sauganash neighborhood of Chicago. They were found scared and emaciated on March 25, 2015. At the time of their rescue they weren't micro-chipped and wore no I.D. tags. Flyers were posted in the area they were found, as well as at Chicago Animal Care & Control, and online via Lost Dogs Illinois on Facebook, but no one has come forward to claim them. They have been living in a loving foster home ever since their rescue and are waiting to find a ... (Read More)wonderful new home together as a pair. They are healthy, and are now neutered/spayed, fecal-tested, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. They are both full of kisses and tail wags for everyone they meet. Billy Ray is a snuggly, five-year-old, 55-pound, blue and white male pit bull terrier. His best friend Miley is a very personable, four-year-old, 48-pound, female brindle and white pit bull terrier. They are both well-trained, great on leash, great with other dogs (not cats) and housebroken. They are great listeners, and both know the command 'sit'. And they play well with each other and with other dogs - even smaller dogs! They are good with people of all ages including respectful children. They love to hear 'treat', 'walk' and 'outside'. They love visits to dog beach and usually have a good time there (they do have the occasional bad day where grouchy has to leave early ... but nothing serious). They also like rough-housing in the yard, followed by a nap on the couch. To meet and possibly adopt this pair, please contact their foster dad Ron for an adoption application at http://www.dogsaredeservingrescue.com/adoptable-dogs/adoption-application/ and follow up by contacting their foster dad Ron by e-mail at ron.jamiolkowski@gmail.com or by phone or text at 708-363-1122.

    I was given up by my owners and have been waiting for my real forever family for a very, very long time. I had a rough start at life. Based on some of my quirks (tilting my head/slight spinning/deafness) the vet feels I was probably hit in the head a lot. You wouldn't even know I'm deaf, but I am. I know some hand signals and can sit when you tell me. I have a lot of energy and LOVE playing with the water hose and my tennis ball! I am currently located in Chicago, but where I really want to be is in a home of my own.

Miley is about 4 years old, weighs 48 lbs., and is a brindle Pit Bull Mix. She is great on leash, great with other dogs and housebroken. She is a great listener and knows 'sit'. She plays well with other dogs, even smaller dogs. She would likely be OK around children who are trained to properly interact with her. In the past, she did have some separation anxiety, but that has lessened over time. Most recently in her foster home, she was crate-free, ...

As might be expected of abandoned dogs, Miley used to guard her food and toys when she first came to the foster home. But now, she shows no signs of resource guarding aggression.

Trainer Jeff Jenkins said that Miley is a 'smart girl with tons of personality'. She loves to hear 'treat', 'walk' and 'outside'. She loves the dog beach and usually has a good time there (like children, she does have the occasional bad day where grouchy has to leave early...but nothing serious).

A couple of days ago (Christmas Eve) I saw someone posting in a group on Facebook (what's happening in Elgin il?) that they wanted someone to take their pit bull or else they were going to put her down. My husband and I decided to pick her up and keep her safe until we find a shelter or rescue that will take her. She is a super sweet dog. Previous owners said she is 2 years old. She has a lot of energy. Any help is much appreciated.

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] I myself had recently rescued Hazel from a family in desperate need to get rid of her. Hazel was previously abandoned at their home. She was extremely neglected and hungry when we got her. She has gained weight but CAN NOT be around my cat and when we try to stop her from chasing the cat she snaps at me and the children. she has never broken skin, but got me really good last night. I was very scared because she would not let go. She does not do this unless it is a cat interaction. I DO NOT want this to be one of my children next. She Needs a HOME ASAP!!!! PLEASE!!

    Hi All, With great sadness we are looking to re-home our family pet Tyson. We need to relocate for my husbands job and are unable to take him with. We have a 9 month old baby who he is fabulous with. I have never had him around other pets so I can't speak to pet compatibility but he never barks at other animals. I'm afraid he's a lover and not a great guard animal- as he loves to lay in his bed or get in bed with us. He'd cover you in 2439873 kisses before doing you any harm. He recently had a thorough teeth cleaning and gets yearly checkups. He's quite chunky and large for a pitbull, last weight was a little over 100lbs. Vaccinations ... (Read More)are UTD. Please contact me with questions or for more pictures. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats 

    THIS IS HOW THIS DOG SPENDS ALMOST 24 HOURS EVERY DAY. I know he's not 'urgent' in the sense that his life is in immediate danger, but personally I think situations like this are tragic and urgent as well. Owner's sister got the owner to agree to rehome because she feels so bad for him. This boys name is Rizzo. He's about 1 1/2 years old and spends almost 24 hours per day in his crate. He prefers older kids, has not met dogs, and ignores the cat. He's currently located in NW Indiana (ignore contact info below), but transport help is likely available. Please, please consider showing this boy what his life should look like.

    Hi! I'm Bruno! I was found all alone on the streets of Chicago when a pretty lady found me and rescued me. I am the longest resident doggy at the rescue right now. I have loads of energy and I am very silly. My foster mom laughs at me all the time. . But I also love snuggling on the couch for hours and wrestling with my foster brother. I do this really cool trick where I jump all the way up into my foster mom's arms! Don't worry - I'm not too big for her. I may look big in my photos, but I'm actually much smaller in person. I need an experienced owner who will continue to work with me in my training and who has a yard so I can run around ... (Read More)and release my energy.

    Hi! My name is Autumn and I'm just sitting here hoping to be rescued. I'm between 1-2 years old and currently living with other dogs at the home of the rescue owner and am not free to roam around. I need training with my manners but being in a crate most of the day is not training. Funds are not available for my needs and the rescue believes that I should be euthanized if I bite a dog or a person. A home where I can be a real dog and socialize and learn manners would help a whole bunch. I had a foster home and a f2a home but again, am at the rescue's home which was her choice. I love walks, cuddling, and playing catch. I am a cuddle bug with ... (Read More)a wiggle butt. I'm not exactly sure of my temperament with other dogs yet. Can you please help and give me a chance?

    Tickle is a beautiful, loving, snuggly, sweet and energetic, two-year-old, 47-pound, female, blue and white pit bull terrier looking for a loving guardian. Tickle landed at Chicago Animal Care and Control when her human went to jail for drug trafficking. She was probably a well-loved pet at some point as she was already well-trained. She knows the commands sit, down and give paw. And, she's housebroken and crate-trained. She also loves to go for rides in the car. Tickle is a sweetheart who loves other dogs, but not cats or other small animals as she has a strong prey drive. She is wonderful with people of all ages including children, but ... (Read More)she is a big jumper so older kids are best. Tickle will do best in a house versus an apartment or condo. She would love a family with a yard and another dog to play with. She loves to learn new things and she learns very quickly. Her favorite things in life are playing with other dogs and cuddling with her humans. Tickle is very healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, de-wormed, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. She is being fostered in the North Park neighborhood of Chicago.

    Champ is a magnificently muscular, glossy, cuddly and well-trained, three-year-old, 63-pound, male black and white Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Champ is friendly and full of kisses and tail wags for his humans. He is however selective about his dog friends, and he's not good with cats or other small animals. He is perfectly housebroken, crate-trained and non-destructive in the home. His foster mom doesn't even crate him at all. Champ is a true athlete and would make an excellent running partner. He is well-trained and very food-motivated. He already knows the commands sit, down, come, shake and is working on ... (Read More)roll-over. He's incredibly snuggly and the best spooner in bed. He is not much of an apartment dog. He would love a fenced in yard to run and play in. He is beauty in motion. He loves his toys a little too much so he's best with indestructible dog toys. Champ grew up with a man who ran a rescue boat in the Fort Meyers area of Florida. He is a fabulous companion on the boat but his dad now is destined to be a sea captain and Champ is not allowed to come. Champ is extremely healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm and fecal-tested and micro-chipped. His adoption fee of $75 benefits rescued pets.

Although he can be transported back to the Chicagoland area. He is looking for a dog-experienced strong leader who can guide Champ and love him for the rest of his life. (Less)

Polo is usually very gentle, but he can get a bit mouthy/jumpy when excited, so he would do best in a home with teens and adults. Polo is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Animal Care and Control. To meet and possibly adopt Polo, please contact Kat at kat@fcacc.org for an adoption application. Or if you have further questions about his behavior, please contact his foster mom at kathryn.lachey@gmail.com He is currently being fostered in the Bucktown/Logan Square neighborhood in Chicago.

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)

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.
