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 Loco! This guy is crazy cute with his big ol' ears and his adorable presonality! Loco is just a baby around 7-8 months old and he deserves a home of his own to grow up in! Lets get this boy out of the kennel and into a loving home of his own! Loco tested well with both dogs and cats, though he does like to chase the kitties around so he'd need a home with no cats, or very understanding cats. This boy is doing phenomenal learning his basic commands, and is very treat motivated. He adores people and just wants to sit on your feet and hang out. He still has his happy puppy energy so a kennel is no place for a happy guy like him. He loves ... (Read More)his toys and would be over the moon to have a yard of his own to run around in! Please share Loco so he can find the perfect forever home (Less)

Please share Moe so he can get out of the noisy kennel and start living the good life!

    We are trying to find him a good home. He's a good boy, who has a lot of energy. We hate to give him up, but think there's a better home for him out there. We just aren't home enough. He's a 3 year old neutered, boxer/pit mix. He's extremely affectionate with people. He gets along so well with our little Boston Terrier Lola, but with other dogs, he would have to be monitored. He's extremely interested in seeing other dogs, but doesn't seem to know boundaries. He's a GREAT watch dog. He's also very affectionate with our family. He grew up with kids in the family and has always been wonderful with them.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi Y'All....Caught you looking! My name is DELANIE. Am I beautiful or what? I am about 50 pounds of Tennessee charm that loves to give kisses and play! I am about 2-3 years old and I am a soft brown beauty of a pittie mix that loves meeting new people. I am good with other dogs, big and small. I am happy playing or just hanging out watching a movie. I could also be someone's walking buddy or hang out at the local dog park. I can be active, but not I'm not hyper. I love to play, but can be a very mellow dog, happy as long as I get some lovin'. I love to snuggle and sneak in some kisses! So, what is my story? I was abandoned in Tennessee ... (Read More)in a no bully breed county. I'm not sure what all that means, but they say that no one there is allowed to adopt me because it's against the law. The only way to find a home is to be 'rescued'. The trouble is that I also had heartworm disease because I wasn't on a monthly preventative so most rescues didn't want me because heartworm is expensive to treat. The shelter contacted Safe Haven because they knew that was my only chance to get out'|other than the bad way. They found a foster home, brought me here to Illinois, and treated me for heartworm. Whew! That was close. I am one of the sweetest dogs you will meet! So happy to be loved and healthy! The pounds are full in the south, and not a lot of dogs make it out alive. I was blessed to be saved and know the happiness of having a full belly each night and someone to keep me safe. My foster family tells me I'm amazing and silly and will make a great addition for a very lucky family'|if you think you might be that lucky family, please email safehavendogsil@yahoo.com for an application. I promise you won't be disappointed! Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping.

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.

She just needs a calm environment to live out the rest of her years.

Butters arrived to IL from a high kill shelter in TN around Thanksgiving, where his family affectionately named him 'Butters' after their Butterball turkey! Before his arrival in IL, Butter's fate was not looking good.

    Meet Kana! Pit Bull Mix Approx. 3-4 yrs old Approx. 50 lbs. My foster family says I am the sweetest, most gentle girl they've ever known. I'm really no trouble at all. I have never had an accident in the house. I love my three fur siblings & two human teenage sibling sisters. I'm as quiet as a church mouse and enjoy my foster home because it's super calm here. I am still uncertain when it comes to loud noises. I have been socialized with lots of other dogs and like them all. I'm a tiny bit shy around humans, but once you spend a little time with me, I will happily relax and enjoy being loved. I would love to have canine brother or ... (Read More)sister to hang out with, that makes me much more confident. My foster family has introduced me to many new things since I arrived a few weeks ago. Among my favorites are car rides (yes, please!), long walks, and cozy spaces (nothing better than a closet with a pile of blankets to snuggle into and the door open so I can keep an eye on things). I recently found something new that caught my eye - a basket of stuffed toys. Whoever invented stuffed animals was a genius! I'm not into chewing, but boy did I have fun with that stuffed frog. Kana is best suited for a home that is calm & relatively quiet. She has had a rough beginning but her personality sure doesn't show it, she is such a gentle soul. She is one special big girl!

I didn't really sit still. I have shown no manners but when you can get my attention, if you have a hot dog, I may sit and pause long enough to take the treat. I did allow touch me all over. Did well with big and little dogs, but may be best with dogs his size due to playfulness. Very strong and may knock kids over accidentally.

    Sammy is a very handsome, strong and playful two-year-old, 63-pound, male, fawn and white pit bull terrier looking for a dog-loving guardian. Sammy loves to play ball! He's actually a giant lap dog who will jump into your lap if given the chance. Sadly, he was given up by his family when they could no longer care for him. He enjoys the company of other large dogs. He is best without smaller dogs, cats and small children. Sammy has a lot of energy and would make a great running partner.

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. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
