Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Malnourished, Abused/Neglected 

    Sweet, loving and quiet dog. Not much is known about him other than his owners leave him outside alone for hours and hour with little to no food or water. His owners have no interest in keeping him and are doing the bare minimal to keep him alive, if even that. All his ribs are showing, he looks starved and dehydrated and gets not love or attention from his owners. If walk to him he is quick to jump up and say hello and leans in for snuggles. He is extremely friendly but needs a good home and an owner to love him and bring him back to goo help. Owners have agree to sign over ownership to me so I can find him a new home, but I am unable to ... (Read More)bring him to my apartment so have not taken ownership. Looking to find him a foster home or permeant home to remove him from his harsh living conditions right away. I'm hoping to obtain medical records ASAP to share. PLEASE, PLEASE help me find him a home. I wish I could provide him the love and care he needs but at this point I can only spend my time and resources trying to find him a better life. Please help me! (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Everyone, I would like you to meet Chica. Chica is a female Red Nose Pit Bull, we believe she is full blooded. I believe she is around forty pounds and a year old, but I am not for sure. She was found on the streets, hadn't eaten in some time and had been abused by the way she acted at first. She is very skinny, even though we feed her a lot since we've had her, we also have been worming her. I would love to keep her, but many things make it so I cannot. She gets along with four of the dogs here, just not our German Shepherd who is a dominant dog. She chases cars. She doesn't like horses, chases cats, and tries to eat birds. She ... (Read More)loves kids and has been around children of all ages, but won't really play with them, but she'll play with an adult sometimes. She has had one litter of puppies, all perfectly healthy. She is very smart. She knows commands 'sit' and 'shake'. She likes to sleep on the bed or on the couch, preferably with someone (child, adult, no matter). She doesn't usually take food out of your hand, but if you sit something down or look away for a moment, don't be surprised if she snatches it. She's a beautiful baby, inside and out. She needs her shots bad, preferably spayed too. We have wanted to take her, but haven't had the money to do so. We aren't certain, but we believe she is underweight by her size. She is a great girl, deserves the best in life, and I just can't provide this for her. We have a neighbor threatening to shoot her if she gets after his horse again and he sees her. We try to keep her outside, but with the kids in and out, she races to get out and doesn't always want to come back in. Please help me. I need to find her somewhere to go as soon as possible, I'm so worried for her. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    Annie is a 23 month old red nosed pit bull terrier. She is looking for her forever home. She would love a home with room to run and people to love! She does NOT do well with other animals due to the fact that she is very protective of her people and her home. She is not dangerous by a long shot though. She's a licker! She may need obedience training! I work a lot and don't have the time to give her the space, companionship, and training she needs. She's a wonderful dog but she'd do better with a busy family who will be there all the time. She does jump when excited!

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I adopted Bella from a local rescue 4 years ago. She has been a wonderful dog for 4 years. Unfortunately, our lives have become extremely busy with a new baby in the house and my wife and I working full-time, plus I go to school full-time at night. She is wonderful with our daughter, loves every human she has ever been in contact with and gets along extremely well with other animals, especially other dogs. She doesn't have an aggressive bone in her body. She has tons and tons of energy that we don't have time to wear off of her. She is constantly kenneled because of our schedules and we feel she would better off with a family that can walk ... (Read More)her and play with her a lot more than we possibly can. We would love to see her go to a large fenced in yard so she can be set free to run around and play. She is a big baby and loves to be cuddled and needs your attention. She was just updated with current vaccinations February 22nd 2014. Please contact me ASAP to help us place her with a wonderful family. (Less)

    Joanie was another poor baby last summer who had acid poured on her back. In all, we had 2 pit mixes and a Lhasa Apsa. Joanie had a more extensive burn so she still has many scars, but not in her heart. She is a very loving girl, not a mean bone in her body. Give sweet Joanie a chance, she won't let you down.

Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    With an incredibly heavy heart it seems its time for me to say goodbye to my best friend of the past 6 years. He is an amazing dog with nothing but love. Unfortunately, I am relocating due to work and there is an incredibly strict laws against Pitbulls. I normally would never choose something like work over my friend, but I would not be able to sustain myself without taking this opportunity. We'll use the rehoming fee for a quick vet trip, maybe a new bed and a bath - most concerned with meeting you. He is a little over 6 and is very healthy and neutered of course. He was the runt of his litter so he's not too large less than 60-65lbs and ... (Read More)less than 2ft at his shoulders. He may be up for a new round of shots so I would advise a new check up when taking ownership. He is great with absolutely everyone and small dogs too. Larger dogs he just needs to be socialized (outside off leash) for a bit then they are best buds. I'd love to discuss things further, please tell me as much as you can about yourself in the opening email - serious and worthwhile requests only, please. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Please Share - Deke Needs Foster While Waiting for the Perfect Family Deke is a tall, sleek, energetic and loving, one-year-old, 41-pound, male, pit bull terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Deke is an incredibly sweet boy who thinks he's a lap dog. He is full of kisses and tail wags and he rolls over for belly rubs. He enjoys playing with other dogs (not cats) - although he does play rough, so his play style is not for everyone. When he's not snuggling in your lap, Deke is a high-energy boy who loves to play ball or go for a run with you. As long as he gets the exercise he needs, he could live in an apartment, condo or house. He ... (Read More)is best with adults and teens because he uses his mouth when playing and that could scare or knock over a small child. Deke is in the process of being trained; he knows sit and down and takes treats gently from your fingers. He is crate-trained and housebroken when kept on a schedule. He is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, fecal and heartworm-tested and micro-chipped. To meet and possibly adopt him, please contact bowwowrevolution@gmail.com or call Heather at 773-706-0407. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of the Bowwow Revolution Rescue Group.

Toby is a cuddler who loves sleeping in bed with his family. Toby is very healthy, neutered and micro-chipped.

    We have two beautiful dogs that we are looking for a home for. Our professions have taken us away from the home too much for these friends to stay home on any given day too long.

Duke was rescued a year after we purchased Cooper so that Cooper could have a friend. He is a male American Pit Bull, light brown. He is a huge lover and lap dog. He like tennis balls and anything he can pull, to include his tire on a rope on the tree. We cannot separate the dogs as they ... (Read More)are truly buddies and play together.

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

    Hello my name is Foster. I am a 9-month-old Pit Bull mix. I am a very happy and bouncy boy even though I was found extremely neglected. I weigh 30lbs but my ideal weight is about 10-15 pounds more than I am, so I am getting fed 3 times a day now to help me gain some much needed weight. Due to the condition my foster mom got me in she is guessing I was left alone in a crate with little food or water to sit in my own waste while hoping for someone to love me. Well, someone saw me and was able to get me away from that situation and into rescue. I am so very happy to be loved, warm, and fed. I also love having a clean soft bed to sleep on. I am ... (Read More)crate trained but if I'm left out without supervision I might have an accident. I am trying to learn the rules of the house but having been locked up my whole life I'm a bit behind others my age. I sleep through the night and always keep my crate clean even if left alone for 6-7 hours. I live with 5 other dogs. I am a little too playful for the calm ones but the silly ones love to play chase with me. I am interested in the cats but still scared of them. I am learning to sit and not jump up to say hi, but I just can't help myself yet. I have been waiting my entire life for friends and I am just so very happy to have them. Maybe I can be your friend for life? If you think you have the time to help me learn the rules I promise I will love you forever and ever. Please fill out an application soon so we can meet and start spring off right together! Oh, I'm neutered, up to date on my shots and microchipped too. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN FOSTER, please fill out our Adoption Application (http://www.helpinganimals.org/adopt/apply.php). This is the first step in meeting the dog. Our web site is updated regularly, so if you see a dog posted here, most likely, he/she is still available. Once you submit the application through HELP's website, someone will contact you within 24 hours. H.E.L.P. also reimburses $50.00 if the dog you adopt finishes a training class within 4 months of the adoption date. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN ADOPTING!! (Less)

    Leo was rescued from Chicago Animal Control and Care on January 1st 2014. He was in bad shape from an abusive situation and we took him home and nursed him back to health. Leo is extremely loving and thankful towards people yet being a larger and energetic breed he needs a larger home with owners who can give him more time than us (young professionals in an apartment complex). We gave Leo a second chance at life now we just need someone with a lot of time, experience and love to give him the best life he deserves! Leo is house broken and knows basic commands (eg. sit, stay, down) We are not asking a fee but we would like to pick the best ... (Read More)home for him. (Less)

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

    Destiny is a three-year-old, 60-pound, smart, affectionate and loyal, female black shepherd/terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. 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. If you'd like to meet and possibly adopt Destiny, please fill out an adoption application at http://www.acaringplacehs.org/ and follow up by contacting the rescue group directly at acaringplace@comcast.net or 630-375-7976. Destiny is very healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, de-wormed, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. She is being fostered in Whiting, Indiana. Her adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of A Caring Place Rescue. (Less)

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)

    Star is an intelligent, energetic dog. She knows many tricks already and learns very quickly. She loves to watch TV! She is an indoor/outdoor dog - I would prefer that her new owner not keep her outside all the time. She was very submissive when we adopted her from the pound, and got along fine with other dogs in the neighborhood. Then we adopted another dog, and she became very territorial and aggressive toward that dog. She was fine with our children, but she has attacked the new dog several times, which is why I am hesitant for her to go to a home with smaller children. She needs room to run outside, either a fenced-in yard or ... (Read More)someone who will walk/run her regularly. It breaks my heart to let her go, but I know she will make someone a fantastic companion. She is so intelligent that she could probably be trained to run obstacle courses - she actually plays on the playground equipment with my kids! We need to find a home for her ASAP, because she is constantly kept in a kennel now to keep her away from the other dog. Thank you. (Less)

    Pupit was found in a parking lot very thin and being threatened by a man because she is part pit bull. We have fostered her back to health and now she is ready for her forever home. She is house and crate trained. Her perfect home would be a family who want a loyal companion and only dog with no cats. Her pointer side is very watchful and she takes basic commands but still needs work on her training. She needs immediate placement due to her being unable to run with other females. She is being kept separate and needs more interaction.

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Dixie, the most lovable dog I have ever had. I adopted her from the shelter on April of 2012. She fit right into the family, did very well with accepting the 4 cats and 1 dog that we already had. We put her straight into training with a local facility and she did fabulous, definitely an A+ student and 100% teacher's favorite. She is an absolutely genius, maybe too smart for her own good sometimes :) A couple months after the class was over, she started to regress, I had since gotten a job and was away from home, she started to show signs of dominance. To nip it in the bud, we stopped letting her sleep with us, stopped letting her on ... (Read More)couches, etc. Unfortunately, in order to curb her lack of attention, she took to chasing after our dog and cats. She would definitely be better in a one dog household. She has never shown signs of aggression towards adults, but has shown signs of dominance over my 13 y/o brother. She is such a great dog, but she is not getting the time and attention she needs. I am looking into being promoted to full time at my job, and I know that will cut down on my time even less for her. I need to find her a place with a person who will be able to give her the attention she needs. The $50 rehoming fee is to ensure anyone who is interested, has the best intentions, it will also cover a bag of the food she eats, her bed, leash, and kennel. Please contact me by email or text or call my cell phone which is (779)-two03-362nine. Thank you for reading. (Less)

(Read More)in my repertoire'| and that continues to grow'| With my accomplished house training and my knowledge of commands like SIT, STAY and LEAVE IT, I'm sure to win your heart'| and'| well, don't forget that treat you're holding in your hand is for me. FUN FACTS Nick Name: Goon'| Gooney McLovin can be a bit of a mouth full. :) Favorite Time of Day: Breakfast! No, Lunch! Wait, Dinner! Snack time?!? EATING!!! That's it! Identifying Trait: The sound of the snore coming from the couch. Accomplishments: Master of the 'SIT' and using the potty outside. :) Dream Home: Though I love my fellow canines, I prefer to have a home to myself. As an only dog, I need an active home with lots of walks, dog park visits and play time. I'm also a bit of a velcro boy, always wanting to be by your side and would prefer my new guardian be more of a home body. This may not be possible, but I'm flexible and can work with that. A growing pup like me is still learning boundaries and would benefit from someone who is willing to devote time to training for which I, Goon, would be a ideal candidate. I know! How can you resist me, Gooney McLovin? So take the next step. Please email Info@RainDogRescue.org for more information about me or submit an application at www.RainDogRescue.org/Application. My adoption fee is $200 and includes all vaccinations to date of adoption, neuter, fecal and microchip. If you can't adopt but want to help, you can donate to help with the cost of my care (food and treats please!:D) and become Part of the Umbrella at www.RainDogRescue.org/Donate. (Less)

    Simon is a very handsome, sweet, snuggly and puppyish, one-year-old, 65-pound, male pit bull terrier-mix with a dark chocolate coat and warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian. Simon was found running stray in Chicago. It was discovered by his foster mom that this smart, lovable, goofy blockhead of a boy knows how to pick locks and open gates. Just imagine how much he can learn with proper training! He has quickly learned the command sit, takes treats gently from your fingers, and is happily learning more lessons in his foster home. Simon on his own, is extremely calm and incredibly gentle. He rises to the occasion to play with other ... (Read More)dogs and he has been absolutely wonderful with every dog he has met thus far ... from Ridgebacks to Goldens and Beagles to Boxers. He's also fabulous with people of all sizes and ages ... In his foster home, he has met humans from six-years-old and up. He's just got a fantastic temperament. Simon loves to play both with other dogs and with his toys. He enjoys gutting stuffed animals to rescue their squeakers, and rope toys are the best for tugging with his foster dog friends. Simon is great on leash, wonderful in the car ... he was even lucky enough to go on a road trip to Wisconsin with his foster family and their three dogs. He loves the beach and while he followed the other dogs into the water, he didn't really go swimming. Simon is housebroken and in the process of being crate-trained ... it helps that his foster mom fills his Kong with lots of great snacks to keep him occupied. Simon is healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. To meet and possibly adopt Simon, please contact his foster mom Aggie at adorosz@yahoo.com or 773-980-0250.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Morgon is a handsome, affectionate, muscular and energetic, four-year-old, 65-pound, male pit bull terrier looking for a loving guardian. Sadly, Morgon was found tied to a tree during the Chicago blizzard of February 2011. He landed in a cage at Chicago Animal Care & Control which at least was warmer. But, when no one claimed him, he was slated for euthanasia due to over-crowding. K9 4 Keeps Rescue took this boy in and has been working with him ever since on trust and training. Morgon needs a little time to warm up to new people. Luckily he is very food-motivated, so earning his trust is as easy as offering him a treat. He is a happy, ... (Read More)energetic, loving dog who wants nothing more than to be someone's loyal and loved companion. Morgon is an inspiration and an example of what consistency and love can do for a dog. Morgon loves to play ball and tug. He does get over-stimulated when excited, so he is looking for a calm dog-experienced guardian who will keep Morgon working; he is happiest when he has a job to do. Morgon is no couch potato; he's more of a running buddy for an active outdoorsy person. Morgon is great in the car, and very attentive to his people. He's strong on leash, so he needs an equally strong leader to guide him. He knows the commands sit and down and takes treats nicely from your fingers. He is also fantastic at catching a treat mid-air. Morgon is good with select dogs; his current best friend and playmate is a female pit bull terrier. To meet and possibly adopt Morgon, please contact K94Keeps rescue at info@k94keeps.org or 312-221-9285. Morgon is housebroken, crate-trained, very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative.

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. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year.
