    Housebroken. Lived with kids ages 4,15 & 17. No small kids! Protective of home. Knows sit. BULLY BREED EXPERIENCE REQUIRED He is good in and out of kennel. He is strong. He does know sit, but that's about it. He is a jumper so be aware. He will sit nice the jump on you-not in a mean way. No cats for Capo. He was way too focused in the cat room. Met Alize and after an initial moment of excitement he settled in very nicely. Did very well meeting both big and little dogs. Was interested for a moment then just walked away from JuJuBee. He did not want to deal with her silliness. Still very jumpy and needs work on manners.

    Once outside, I show my silly side and zoom around the yard. I have patches of fur missing and will need a medicated bath twice a week. You can touch me all over. I like squeaky stuffies. I like treats and take them gently. I know sit. I didn't mind meeting Theo or Stanley at their kennels. I was afraid of some of the cats and may need a re-test. I followed a treat back into my kennel. Met Shelby and really wanted to play with her. Grain free food will be necessary. Comes out very easily and ready to run out of kennel room now.

    I want to get out of the kennel room as fast as possible. I like being outside. You can touch me all over. I know sit and take treats gently. I tried playing with a ball, but didn't really know how. I'm a bit awkward. I met Egypt thru the fence and did well. It was like looking in a mirror, with the exception of our ears. I seem to be housebroken. I backed away when kittens hissed at me. I also jumped back when a chi barked in my face.

    Meet Wylie! This guy clearly hasnt had the best life and he came to us as an abuse case. He was very skinny, and has some very obvious scarring. We arent sure why or what happened to him but were hoping we can find him a family that will show him how great life can be! He is a cattle dog mix around 6 years old. He tested well with dogs but would probably do best with a not very dominant dog. He is an awesome boy who has been through a lot and its his time to find a forever home!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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 love to toss stuffies around the yard. I really like to play. I wanted to play with Chango. I liked him, but he wasn't in the mood. He's older so I will need someone to play with.

    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 met kittens and little dogs without issue.

He also does not like to be grabbed by the collar, but he is perfectly fine being led by a leash. He has gotten out of the house and ran about the neighborhood before. He will let anyone help get him. He doesn't bark at people at all. Only at cats. He is a really ... (Read More)awesome great dog.

He is getting more and more stressed in our kennel and we can tell it's really starting to break his amazing spirit. He did well and was pretty playful when tested with other dogs, but he would do best in a cat free home. He'd love nothing more than a yard of his own to run around in, and his very own human to play fetch with. Please share Fisher so he can finally start the life he deserves!

Pit Bull    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, snugly 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 snuggle 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 knows the commands sit, down, paw, rollover and stay. She is also wonderful on 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 is, however, not good with cats, and she's good with select dogs - typically male dogs larger than herself. 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. Swifty is extremely healthy, spayed, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested negative, and up-to-date on vaccines. To meet and possibly adopt her, please contact Kat at kbudrean@hotmail.com for an adoption application. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits FCACC and includes professional training to help her transition to her new home. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-19-00015Cookie and Luke (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hello hello! Don't worry, you aren't seeing double: we really are a dynamic duo that is looking for a forever home together! My name is Cookie and my sweet son is Luke; if you are looking for not one, but two amazing, loving, and endlessly entertaining BFFs, please consider making us a part of your family because we are available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation and Chicagoland Dog Rescue. These two groups joined together to save our lives when we showed up at Chicago Animal Care & Control because they could see how ... (Read More)bonded we are and had to give us a new chance at a happily ever after! Could that be with you? I am a 2-year-old, gorgeous Shar-Pei/American Pit Bull mix, and my dashingly handsome son Luke is about 1-year-old. I am about 35 pounds and have beautiful white and tan fur; I use my gorgeous chocolate eyes to stare adoringly at my favorite people. Luke is about 45 pounds with white and brindle swirls in his fur. We are a good-looking pair, but our personalities are even better! I am the more outgoing of the two of us (Luke is young and looks to me for instruction; who can blame him for being such a momma's boy when his momma is as awesome as me?) Luke can be shy with new people, but once he sees me say hello he opens up very quickly. We have made quite a few new human friends; everyone tells us how much they love us! We are also having a great time at our foster home: we have a big fenced yard there and we LOVE to romp and play in the wide, open space. So we would have to have a fenced yard at our forever home to enjoy. We like to be active and are a little mischievous, so having a big space to play is definitely ideal! When we are all tired out from our play sessions, we love to curl up together with our foster mommy and dole out lots and lots of sweet kisses. We are becoming good roommates and working to improve our manners more and more every day! We would love a patient family who will continue to help us be our best selves. We are working on perfecting potty training and learning to let foster mommy know when we have to go do our business. With continued practice and a consistent schedule, we will have it down in no time! We are crate trained and can be left to hang out with each other for up to eight hours in our extra large crate to entertain ourselves and take some cuddly naps together. Since we are young, when foster mommy comes home we like to spend lots of time playing and burning our energy in fun ways. We have even learned the command sit already and would love to learn more! Fetching Tails Foundation likes to encourage all adopters to attend training classes with their new pups, and we think we would greatly benefit from the chance to socialize, bond with our new family, and see just how smart we can become by learning all the fun tricks and commands we hear they teach you in class. Foster mommy says we take corrections well and learn fast, so I bet we would be the class co-valedictorians in no time! We also love car rides, so we would love to go on adventures with you! If you think two dogs are better than one, and want to give us our happily ever after together, please contact our friends at Fetching Tails and CDR soon and tell them you want double the fun with Cookie and Luke! We can't wait to start our lives and adventures with you! XOXO, Cookie (and Luke!) If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us! Adoption Requirements: *Be at least 21 years of age *Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household *Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) *Have a valid ID with current address *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment *Lives in 50 mile radius of Itasca within the Illinois border Adoption Fees: Senior dog - 8 years and up, $75 Adult or young dog - 6 months to 7 years, $250 Puppies - under 6 months, $350 (Less)

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)

    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.
