Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I have 2 girls that are loving and playful that need a foster home for a few months. Perhaps until March? They are spoiled and greatly loved. I am hoping for a local home so I can visit and provide their food, etc. I believe a fenced yard would be best. Diamond can tend to do her own thing at times and not want to listen regarding 'time to come in'. I can't let them be separated. They love each other. Mena has been raised with Diamond. I do not know if they are compatible with other female dogs. We did live with a friend who had 2 male boxers and they all played and got along very well. They have been introduced to cats and seem to be ... (Read More)curious but never aggresive towards them. (Less)

    Hi, my name is Abby. I am a 1.5 yr old pit bull-terrier-Dalmatian mix. Looking for a new home, preferably with a fenced back yard. I have lots of energy and love to run around, play fetch, and go for long walks. I get along great with people and children but have problems with some other dogs. I currently live with a golden retriever/sheppard mix who is very mild mannered and we get along well. I have attended doggy boot camp for 3 straight weeks. The training was very successful and I respond well to commands of sit, stay, off, come, and quiet(no bark). I am very affectionate and would make some new owners very happy. please adopt me

    My name is Percy. I am a Presa Canario/ Pit mix. I am about a year old and weigh 53lbs. I was taken in to an open access municipal animal control. I was pretty banged up. Luckily some volunteers at the shelter took the time to notice me. I was emaciated, and I had two large nasty burns on my hips, badly cropped ears with dried blood and fly bites all over. They looked past my appearance and saw me for the good doggie that I am. I am very affectionate and I like to rest my head on your leg. I do like to lean on you if you would let me. I have a lot of puppy energy but I am learning to walk better on leash. I love to play fetch and was given ... (Read More)the opportunity join playgroup with other dogs. I respond well to hand signals and will look to you for instruction. I am house broken and crate trained. I also love kids, but my foster mommy thinks that I would do better with older kids because my excitement might knock down little ones. I would require a high fenced in yard if a yard is available. An angel sent me to Making a Difference Rescue. Will you watch over me too? Please remember we can not adopt out of state because a home visit is a requirement. We require an at home evaluation and screening prior to adoption. We do this to ensure that our animals will go to safe forever homes. 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.

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.

    Nova is a great dog! She has some hyper activity issues when she meets new people but is a couch potato around the house. She came to us at 10 weeks super sick and full of worms and underweight and was intended to be used as bait. My husband and I love her dearly but she is simply not the dog for our family which we quickly figured out as she needs way more exercise and socialization than we can give her. She would make an AMAZING running partner!! Very happy and loving dog. She has been great with my 1 year old, but with another baby on the way, she just is going to be pushed aside further which is unfair.

    THis super sweet dog is very laid back and just needs someone to love her. She has been abandoned by her owner (due to circumstances) and family has been taking care of her in the empty house. She gets along with other large dogs (but can be food aggressive with other dogs). I personally am afraid of LG dogs and I truly love her already. She is an Indoor dog. Has been crate trained but loves to be in bed with you also. She can hold it all day, we have only had to clean up a mess once.

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

    Rocky is a very good dog but needs more attention. I am a full time, working single mother and I cannot provide the attention and training he deserves. He is great with children and a very fun loving dog. He has had a large yard to run freely in for 3 years so he is in need of being retrained on a leash but that is his only downfall.

    This was taken care of by a busy family so he's medically well but they were very suppressive by keeping him constantly locked up and living in close proximity to his waste at times. So I took him and swore to find him a home. He really is super sweet and good and cuddly and good with my golden retriever and my kids.... He needs desperately to run and really needs to be part of the group.

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    We adopted her 4 yrs ago. She came from an abusive background. We need to re-home her, because she became very dog aggressive towards our other dogs. We have never had issues with adults or kids. She is still a little timid upon first introduction to humans. We are guessing her to be about 5yrs old. Serious inquiries only. I will only re-home her to someone that does not have pets. And must be familiar with the breed. Inside dog only.

    Casper is a gentle male neutered and guessed to Boxer/pit bull mix/maybe pointer, approximately 16 months old when he was rescued from Green River Kentucky. He has been with his foster family since mid June. He loves to play fetch, go for walks daily and play with other dogs. Currently his playmates are two large dogs. He is maybe the smallest in size but he is the youngest and enjoys playtime immensely as he spent three plus months in a kennel. Casper is housebroken, but a private poo-per, barks for attention and when somebody is at the door. He walks best on a traditional leash. An expandable leash confuses him and he think is on a tie ... (Read More)out and wants to play. After just a week he has earned the right to have freedom of our entire home with our pets.( two dogs and a cat).Casper is indifferent to our cat. He does not chase or stalk the cat. Casper understands basic commands: sit ,walk,stay ,leave it and his name. He will take food gently from your hand. Gives kisses and follows me throughout the house. If you decide to adopt Casper and you are looking for him, just look down and mostly he can be found at your feet. If necessary I would suggest you gated him as he does not do well in a crate! Casper would do best in a home with another dog (s). He is young playful dog looking at a forever home.

    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.

    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting.
