Rescue Me ID: 15-02-26-00237Pops (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average 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-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. He gets a little nervous around male dogs that are much larger than himself, but plays nicely with just about all dogs. Pops also loves to play and chew his toys and bones. After his exercise, he is relaxed and low-key in the home. Pops is a 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 ... (Read More)eyes with his 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 his 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. 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)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Cocoa is a great lady who has a sad story. Cocoa had an owner who loved her dearly and did everything in her power to keep Cocoa, including keeping Cocoa in her car when the landlord kicked them out. This isn't how a beautiful dog like Cocoa deserves to live, however, and the owner has since relinquished Cocoa to us, knowing we'll give her the home she deserves. Cocoa is a white and brown boxer mix with the saddest eyes and the sweetest heart! She's one year old, so she has plenty of vim and vigor. Cocoa is good with kids, other dogs, and even cats! She hates being kenneled, but she's sweet as honey when she's out of it. Cocoa would make a ... (Read More)great addition to any family. Come meet her today! (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Austin is a very handsome, three-year-old, energetic and happy, 55-pound male brindle and white pit bull terrier-mix with warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian. Austin knows basic commands and is housebroken. He listens well and wants to please. Austin is very trainable. He is full of kisses and tail wags and after he's had enough exercise, he is content to hang out on his dog bed to play with his toys. Austin absolutely adores people and just loves being around them. He's playful, loves to fetch, and enjoys leashed walks. Austin is great on leash but he also loves to run so would be great with someone who enjoys jogging. Austin ...

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-23-00243Dante (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

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

    I rescued Dante from DuPage County Animal Control on 02/19/15 because he was due to be put down the next day. I found out about him from a post on Craigslist. A woman had given him to her cousin, because he is food aggressive with other dogs and she has two other dogs. After a couple weeks, instead of giving the dog back to her, the cousin surrendered it to animal control. She pleaded on Craigslist for someone to go with her to get him out, and just pay the $75 dollar fee. I agreed as I was in search of a dog. This dog is perfect, I love him to pieces and it breaks my heart that he triggers my asthma and I cannot breath around him. There is ... (Read More)nothing wrong with this dog, he is 1 1/2 years old, completely housebroken, does not destroy things, and is extremely loveable. He has sleep with me on the couch, and most of the time his head is on my leg. I have an upset stomach over this decision, but I have to do it for my own health. He will come with 1/2 bag of 50 lb dog food, bowls, leash, collar and treats, and rabies tag that expires Oct. 2015. Due to food aggression issues, I would prefer he be the only dog. He is only food aggressive with dogs, not people. I have picked his bowl up while he ate and he just waited patiently for me to put it down. he does know basic commands (sit, give paw) but needs a refresher course, as he seems to only do them when offered a treat. Please help give him a home. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    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. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of the Making a Difference Rescue. To meet and possibly adopt Max, please fill in an adoption application at http://makingadifferencerescue.com/adoption-survey/ and follow up by contacting Liz at findmeahome2@sbcglobal.net or 815-258-5892 or his foster mom Amaliya at makingadifferencerescue@gmail.com (Less)

Truffles has an excellent temperament - she loves other dogs, and she'd love to grow up in a home with kids or other pets. Maybe she could even go home with her brother! If you want someone to love you forever, Truffles is just the girl for you!

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Bentley! Bentley is a two year old Lab/Pittie mix who loves to love. Bentley wants nothing more than to be a lap dog - he doesn't know what a big boy he is. Bentley likes other dogs his size when the chemistry is right - he's a young, active guy, so he wants a puppy partner who wants to play with him. Bentley has a beautiful deep chocolate coat and the smooshiest face; he's tolerant of being handled and could be a great family dog for an active, adventurous brood. Bentley is definitely up for anything!

    Honey is a wonderful 5 year old pit bull with the mellowest, sweetest, most tolerant disposition. She's gentle, loving, and playful. 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?

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-18-00132Pumpkin (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Pumpkin is a special girl who love to cuddle. She has been ok with larger male dogs in a few social situations, but not recommended. She is not compatible with cats, small animals, or smaller dogs at all. She is very protective, especially when leashed; unleashed she would walk up wagging to almost anyone. Although she has never warmed up to a neighbor of mine. She still likes to drag her chew dolls around, but doesn't tear up anything (unless there's food in the trashcan.) She's completely potty trained, no issues there. She hates her nails to be trimmed. I'm having a terrible time finding a place to rent that will allow her within ... (Read More)my price range. The options are dwindling to nothing. Even places that allow dogs have either a weight limit or breed restriction. And I am a single mom. Pumpkin was left behind by my ex boyfriend when we broke up. He is unstable and cannot/won't find a way to keep her or rehome her. He doesn't want me to rehome her either, but I cannot make my child homeless because I am running out of options. My lease is up where I am June 1st and I cannot renew here because the house is not up to code. I would like to find the right place to rehome her. It takes a special family. She has lived happily with my children ranging from 10-20 years old. I would not recommend a home with young children. If I end up in a position of needing a shelter, she will likely be on a first to go list for euthanasia. And I really don't want that. I have just a few months to get all my ducks in a row both financially and with Pumpkin. If you think you could be a great home for her or can lead me to affordable housing to keep her in, please let me know ASAP. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Rosie is a tan brindle. We think she was the runt of the liter because she is a bit small but strong. She LOVES to cuddle, play outside, swing from ropes on trees and go for walks. She is a memeber of our family but we just brought home our 1st newborn daughter and Rosie just has not reacted how we anticipated or prepared for. We love her to death and want her to live with people that would do anything for her. But she definitely needs to be the only dog/pet in the house and no kids. We know she is an older dog but she acts like a puppy and just wants to love on her humans!

    Courtesy Posting. We would like to help Titan find his forever and safe home though our rescue. Hi there! My name is Titan and I am one years old. I am the nicest pit bull you will ever meet. I love hugs and kisses and if you let me I will put my head on your lap and fall asleep. I live with my foster mommy & daddy, 2 smaller brothers (chi mix) and Luna-cat. I love them all but I don't play with Luna- she scares me :D I am very healthy and I love walks and being outside in the yard. When we all go out for a walk I stay right by my family's side. I don't bark at people, my little brothers do that enough already%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD| ... (Read More)Sometimes we go to this big park where we don't have to be on the leash and we can just run around! I like it there but I always stay with my foster mommy%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD|that place is so big that I am afraid to get lost. Lots of other doggies go there too and we all play and when it is warm I like to swim and play fetch with my little brother Abbas. Sometimes my foster mom and dad have to leave for work and they leave us in our crates. I like mine, it's big and cozy and I always get a treat when I am there. When mom leaves us, we all go to sleep. My foster mom says I am a good boy and when we get ready for dinner I like to talk to her in my doggie language. She says it's funny. Overall I am a good boy and if you have some treats and toys I am sure I would like them too, but even better if you like being outside like I do and then we could run together to the woof-finity and beyond! If you are interested in providing Titan a forever home, Please fill out our online survey: http://makingadifferencerescue.com/adoption-survey/ Please be aware that we do not adopt out of state. We do require screening and an at home visit. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dave is a three year old male American Pit Bull Terrier. Big Dave is a silly cuddle bug. He is calm, smart, listens well and appears to be a pretty thoughtful guy. We think of the phrase 'Still waters run deep' when we think of our Dave- he may be quiet but that just hides his great depth of character. Besides all this our gentle guy is a great kisser, gets along well with other dogs and seems to enjoy children. Dave is one of our staff and volunteer favorites. Once you meet him he will be a favorite of yours too. His minimum adoption donation is $95. If you are interested in possibly adopting Dave, please fill out the adoption application ...

    Sandie is a sweet 5 year old gal who came to ACL as a stray. It is obvious that she was loved in a home at some point as she loves squeaky toys and knows 'sit'. Sandie walks well on the leash and would be a great dog for long walks to the beach! Sandie is good with other dogs her size, but no cats please! She'd be happy with an active family with older children who can run her around before they settle in for a snuggle.

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive

    Rocco is a mellow dude. I will post pictures but my work computer prohibits that kind of thing. My priority is finding a better than good forever home for my dog. Unfortunately, he is the result of a break in a relationship and I cannot care for him. Rocco is medium build, approximately 55 lbs., chocolate brindle. His face is the sweetest I've ever seen. I do not wish to relinguish him back to the animal shelter we bought him at. Please, serious inquiries only. Will post his adorable pics soon!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Rachel Ray is a friendly, playful, snuggly, happy and affectionate two-year-old, 56-pound, female Lab/Terrier-mix with warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian. 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. Rachel Ray is a super-friendly gal who loves everyone - including cats, and most dogs - and is full of kisses and tail wags for everyone she meets. She even sleeps in bed with her ... (Read More)foster mom. She loves toys and bones and rides nicely in the car. She also walks beautifully on leash wearing her gentle leader head harness, and has nice house manners. 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! To meet and possibly adopt Rachel Ray, please fill in the adoption application at http://www.magnificentmutts.org/DogAppForm/NewApplicationsDog.html and follow up on your application by contacting the rescue at magmuttsrescue@aol.com If you have questions for her foster mom, please contact Anne at almaclaren@sbcglobal.net Rachel Ray is healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee of $100 benefits the rescued dogs and cats of Magnificent Mutts. (Less)

    I adopted June from the city pound in September 2012. She was tiny, barely skin and bones about 7 months old. Her history is unknown, but it seems that those first 7 months of her life were rough. She is fearful and anxious around strangers, but an amazing dog! So smart and sweet! (I can provide refernces from dog sitters, etc) She is very submissive and protective og us, so I usually crate her if service people are over. She usually warms up to friends and relatives so that is not a problem. Truly, I love her so much but we cannot keep her. I've been allergic to her all along and I can't give her the space she needs: she spends most of ... (Read More)her time in the kitchen of my apartment. She is potty trained, crate trained, knows basic commands and will be your most loving companion. We are looking for a good, loving individual or family who will be extra loving for this little gem.

Animal ID: 15-02-06-00714Bear (male)

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)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We recently adopted a second dog named Koda but sadly we are going to have to rehome him again. He gets a bit too rough playing with our other dog (he not vicious he just likes to use his paws to bat at him and our other dog is small so if you have a second dog for Koda to play with a dog more his size would be best). He is a 60 pound pit husky lab mix and is an absolute lover. He LOVES to snuggle and really enjoys a good head rub. But sadly he is not leash trained. Him being 60 pounds it is way too hard on myself to attempt to leash train him as he pulls me down the block and my husband works a ton so he doesn't have the time. As mentioned ... (Read More)Koda is part husky so he loves to run and will need a big house with a big yard and a fence. We love him already and we want him to have a great home where he can run and play and get all of the exercise, training, and attention that he needs. He is crate trained and sleeps through the night, but if he is left alone in his crate whenever we leave he cries and cries. We've been working on breaking him of that and he has made leaps and bounds in the short time we have had him. He is potty trained as well. Koda likes kids but does get a bit rough playing with smaller children (he likes to jump on them but with some training he could be a great playmate). He likes car rides as well so once leash trained he would make a great companion to take out to the bike path or a park for a hike! He is 15 months, neutered, and microchipped. Rehoming fee of 100 dollars to insure he goes to a good home. He has a crate, a harness, a collar, a leash, some food and toys that will go with him to his forever home. We would like to meet any potential adopters and view their home before rehoming him to make sure the home is up to our standards. Thank you for taking the time to read this! We hope to hear from you soon! (Less)

    Ares is a kissable and snuggly, attentive, two-year-old, 63-pound, male brindle and white terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Poor Ares came into Chicago Animal Care & Control as an emaciated owner give-up. He was lucky to have been taken home by a dog-trainer who has housebroken him, crate-trained him, and trained him in commands: sit and down. Ares absolutely loves people and when he goes to the dog park, he not only plays with dogs, but jumps into people's laps! Ares is great on leash and has no reactivity to other dogs. He is so fabulous with all dogs that he goes to doggie day care too! His only negative (if he has to have ... (Read More)one) is that he gets car-sick. Ares is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm and fecal-tested. To meet and possibly adopt Ares, please contact Curtis at csdogtrainer@gmail.com at 773-865-6160.

Beautiful 55 pound, happy, girl about 2 to 3 years old. She is current on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped.

(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)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    My name is Percy. I am a Presa Canario/ Pit mix. I am about a year old and weigh 60lbs. 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 kids older than 10 years old because my excitement will knock down little ones. An angel sent me to Making a Difference Rescue. Will you watch over me too? Percy is currently fostered in Chicago, IL. We will only consider applications within 30 miles of Chicago, IL. Please remember we will 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. We ask that you please call and inquire whether we are able to travel to your area. Percy is located in Chicago. He is adoptable within a 30 mile radius. If you are interested in providing Percyy a forever home, please fill out our adoption survey http://makingadifferencerescue.com/adoption-survey/ This will expedite your inquiry as we are not able to return phone calls or emails during our own non volunteer working hours.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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. 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.
