Rescue Me ID: 16-09-23-00243Gene (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult


    **GENE WAS SURRENDERED TO A HIGH KILL SHELTER AND NEEDS A FOSTER OR ADOPTER TO SAVE HIS LIFE.** This picture absolutely breaks my heart. Gene came in as an owner surrender on 9/16. Little guy Gene will need a special/patient person. He is slow to respond and stands and stares off into space. His tongue always sticks out too. He will let you pet him and even gives some tail wags but does not seek out affection. He looks like a puppy but could definitely be a little older than that. A155069 FT

Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This Pitbull was in a situation of being dropped off at a shelter so I said I would take her to foster her until they could find her a home. They never really got back to me so that is why we are here:). I believe she is just a Pit Bull I cannot verify that but she seems to be and my vet thinks so too. SOOO SWEET just has a few little ticks that with some time and patience could be worked out. She is very smart I have been able to teach her things very quickly. Her first home was at 5 wks someone had left the litter on a street corner at 4 wks. The family that adopted her at 5 wks was NOT good. The male adult in the household was a heavy ... (Read More)drinker and was VERY hard on her. She had a bladder infection and couldnt hold it and he would beat her every time she went potty. When I got her she still had the bladder infection and was so sad everytime she went potty even when it was outside and i would be praising her for going. She is very emotional and VERY caring. The only thing I have real concern about right now is I have a 5 yr old daughter and she really loves her but bc of her past I dont feel safe leaving her alone with her. If she runs she gets VERY excited and has fallen and gotten a bit funny about it. Her only bad habit is jumping NO MATTER what i have tried she just keeps doing it its like a 'I'm sorry' kinda thing and the more you try to reprimand or correct she does it more like she cant help herself. I now just say down and dont interact or pet at all until shes down. Seems to be getting better. You can see she understands just very apologetic all the time. I have an old 14 yr old Golden mix that she has shown to be dominant over but not a good judge becuase of her age i feel like if there was another well behaved confident dog that was good with other dogs she would respect. I dont know that for sure so maybe better without other animals. When she was young she was brought up with other dogs and cats. She went after my cat once but stopped chasing him as soon as I called her. Definitely needs a home with someone that has experience with breeds like her kind because she would make an awesome, caring, loving companion. I just do not have the time I have 4 kids a horse rescue and everything that goes with that. She NEEDS to have the time and I believe she will make an AWESOME dog/life-long friend. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-14-00389Benny (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult


    **Benny was abandoned and will need to go to a shelter if a home for him isn't found** From finder: I found a pitbull mix in my hallway at one of my properties. Based on what my tenant said the neighborhood kids were throwing rocks at him and abusing him. As if that wasn't enough his owners who were the neighbors moved away this past weekend and purposely left this sweet boy behind. I couldn't bring myself to put him back on the streets or take him to a shelter where he would potentially be put down so I took him to the hospital. They checked for a microchip but he didn't have one and they were kind enough to give him some flea ... (Read More)medication, food and a nice bath. We tried to find a rescue group or someone to take him in for the time being but we've had no luck. My sister is being kind enough to let me keep him in her insulated garage until we figure something out. His basic necessities are covered, but he can't live in a garage forever, and we know he deserves so much more than this. I have emailed and called several rescue organizations but they are either full to capacity or have told me that they need to rescue him from a shelter. I am truly at a loss and don't know who else to contact at this point.

    Hi, I'm Roxy. I am a calm and sweet girl. I am housebroken, crate-trained, good on a leash, and I know basic commands. I used to have a home, but my owners moved and didn't take me with them. Because of that I am sad in the shelter and don't show well in my kennel. I need to be the only pet in the home but I LOVE my people so much that I am the only pet you'll need. I am running out of time in the shelter, will you come save me? (adoption fee is $45 with $5 worth of donations in school supplies)

    Butch is a very sweet boy with dark chocolate coloring and white chest, tummy, and toes. He's good with dogs his size and larger. He needs someone who doesn't work long days; the ideal placement would be with a family or retiree who can give him the attention he deserves. He is prone to separation anxiety if left for long hours, and we simply don't have the time to devote to him. Please help, he's such a good boy!

    Niko is a sweet boy. Loves all dogs he's met and lives in a home with 2 other dogs. He doesn't pay much attention to our cat. We had him neutered in April 2016. He has recently become aggressive when trying to get him off the couch or bed or to go in his box. He will growl and turn his head as if he would bite. I'm sure this can be fixed with training. I do not have time for that. I have 4 kids and work. Other than that issue he is a great boy! Any questions please get ahold of me via email or call. Thank you!

    Reveille was rescued as an extremely malnourished and abused puppy. He was severely neglected and developed issues from starvation, mange and parasites. He also was very fearful of humans. Reveille is now socialized and is good with most dogs. He is too rough with cats nowadays so his new home needs to be dog only! He is playful, crate trained, and has been fixed, chipped and vaccinated recently against rabies. Reveille will do best in a home that is active and enjoys taking him to do things.

    Piper is an amazing dog and such a special part of our family. IF WE DO NOT FIND A HOME FOR HER OR A FOSTER HOME WE WILL HAVE TO PUT HER DOWN IN 7 DAYS. *That is the deadline we were given. My children and husband are heartbroken as well as I am because of having to get rid of her. She is our baby and her downfall is other dogs. She is amazing with people and loves children. The reason we have to get rid of her is she jumped out our truck window and went after our landlords dog. The dog wasn't hurt but he has his mind made up about her no longer being here, even though is was bad timing and an accident. We do not want to get rid of her but ... (Read More)due to our circumstances of not being able to afford to move to a new place right now she must go. I have my children to be concerned about with school and having a roof over there head. We do not want our dog to go, but she has to. She is such a good girl and a lovable teddy bear. She loves kisses on her forehead and hugs all the time. She sleeps next to the kids and is so special and I have tears in my eyes just writing this. Whoever helps us by adopting her will fall in love the moment they meet her. Will someone please give this amazing pup of ours a good home? Even a foster home would work to give us a lil time to relocate. I would provide the things she needs if someone will foster her.

    Chappie is one fine chap! This 18 month old dilute brindle pittie boy is just scrumptious - friendly, easygoing, and happy all year round. Chappie arrived at ACL as a stray, but we know from his excellent manners and relaxed nature that he was once someone's pet. Though someone tried to make him look 'tough' by cropping his ears, Chappie just can't pull it off - he's much too nice of a gent! Chappie lived happily with children, and he'd make a great family pet. He's good with other dogs when the chemistry is right, but we don't know how he'd do with cats. Chappie is completely housebroken, well-behaved, and he absolutely loves spending time ... (Read More)with his beloved friends...and for Chappie, that includes everyone! (Less)

She is territorial at times, she plays with our neighbors dogs and children. She swears she can be a lap dog and gives you nothing but kisses. She is kennel trained and is trained she will let you know when she has to go to the bathroom. Cheeba has to find a good home due to discrepancies at owners expense. It breaks my heart to even go to this point but I want to know she is going to a good home rather than sit in a shelter. She knows tricks and listens very well.

    **BLUE IS AT A HIGH KILL SHELTER AND NEEDS A FOSTER OR ADOPTER TO SAVE HIS LIFE.** Must be within a couple hours of Chicago to help. Age approx. 1 yr. What a sad, sad story. Blue is a friendly boy that was brought in by the police. They said he has been living in a park and being cared for by the children that visit the park. The kids said they saw him being abandoned by his owners. The even said the owners even came back the following day after abandoning him as they forgot to remove his collar and ID tag as they didn't want the dog being traced back to them! The kids loved him so much that the police tried to find Blue a new home with ... (Read More)someone in the neighborhood; however, somehow Blue ended up back at the park! So they had to bring Blue in as they can't have him living in the park. Blue is noted to get along with kids of all ages and did really well living with another female dog. He loves being pet and is just a really sweet young boy. Had no problem petting him all over. He didn't seem to be putting much weight on his back leg; however, it didn't seem to be bothering him. The cops that brought him in are trying really hard to find him a foster and rescue. Everyone that meets him loves him! (Less)

    Surely there is someone/ a family out there for this sweet boy! Simba was rescued from a horrible situation where he was used for breeding, then dumped. He is 6 years young, handsome, obedient, walks well on a leash, great with people of all ages, housebroken, fixed, vetted, microchipped, and has lots of love & loyalty to give to the right person/family. Simba needs a dogless home with an experienced handler as Simba was never socialized with other dogs. He needs someone willing to put in some time and patience to work with him so that he can become the balanced dog he was meant to be.

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

    Gorgeous Gala is the gregarious gal for you! Gala is a two year old German Short-haired Pointer/Pit Bull mix who came to ACL as a stray, and we've been loving having her with us for the past couple of weeks. Gala is nothing if not a busy bee - she is head-over-heels in love with tennis balls, playing fetch, and investigating every nook and cranny of her surroundings. Gala is what we call a 'high drive' dog - she's like an Olympic athlete who does everything to the max. When Gala plays fetch, she plays fetch with all of her being. When Gala sees a squirrels, she watches it like she has laser eyes. 'High drive' dogs like Gala can be an ... (Read More)absolute blast in the home - they're the dogs you see excelling at agility, fly-ball, and other canine sports. It takes Gala a little while to connect to people - she prefers to play on her own at first and start bonding on her own time. She'd love a home that has plenty of work for her to do and plenty of patience while she learns to love. Gala is not comfortable with other animals at this point, but she may be able to work through that with the right adopter. Gala needs a home with dog experience, children 12 and up, and an interest in a dog with more skills than your average pooch! Email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org for more info on meeting Gala in person. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    DOB 3/1/15 After seeing Minnie's shelter picture, we knew she needed out ASAP! She was so thin at only 25 lbs, and now after a lot of TLC from her foster, she is 40 lbs. Upon arriving on transport, she greeted everyone with tail wagging and kisses, she knew she was now safe. We think she might be Border Collie/Pit mix and about 1 yr old. After arriving at her foster home, she got to learn what being a puppy was all about, learning how to play and what a dog toy is. She has blossomed into a beautiful, happy, affectionate, active pup, who loves to go on walks. Minnie is not a fan of the crate, but doesn't need one since she does great ... (Read More)without one. Cuddling up with her foster family at bed time, is one of her favorite things. Since she was an outside dog, she had to learn about housebreaking. She enjoys, is playful with and friendly with other dogs. Now that she has been shown what life should be like, she is looking for her forever family to continue showing her what love is. If interested in meeting Minnie or for more information please go to www.alwaysroom4morepaws.com to read about our adoption process. Here you will also find the application to fill out and send back. *Breed and age are a guess. (Less)

    It's like finding a needle in a haystack, I know, but are there any dogless foster homes (hopefully with a licensed rescue) that can help Simba become the amazing canine he's meant to be? He is fixed, vaccinated, microchipped, 6 years old, housebroken, great with people of all ages, and good on a leash. He needs an experienced dogless foster/ foster family willing to put in the time, and work with him on his dog socialization skills. This poor guy has recently suffered hotspots, CIV, and has existed previously just for breeding and fighting. He previous 'owner' dumped him after five years, not microchipped, vetted, or vaccinated, and I got ... (Read More)the owner to surrender him after seeing a post about him being given away online. Simba has received little enrichment from humans, nor positive experiences with other dogs in his life. If you saw for yourself the happiness in his eyes while he devours an ice cream cone, or plays fetch, you would know he is worth the effort, like I do (and anyone else that has had the pleasure to meet him)! Please consider opening your heart and home to Simba! Contact me if you can help. Serious inquiries only. (Less)

He is passive dominant towards other dogs. He may be okay with females but not other males. He is great on walks and loves to just hang out by his people. This guy deserves a home to live out his days - he is healthy!

Unfortunately I cannot move due to financial reasons. I have had her since she was 6 weeks old. I adopted her from the humain society. I have original adoption papers.

    Very affectionate, loves to be with the family but will occupy himself with chew toys. Loves to lay on the couch with us. He likes to sleep with us but can easily be kenneled if needed. Has been good with our 5 year old. The only reason we are looking for a home is relocation. We cannot take him with us where we are moving. He seems to do better when other dogs are not present in the home (can compete a little for the attention) but he does well when meeting other dogs on a walk. He is very handsome, beautiful coat and eyes.

    Jazzy is a great dog. She loves playing outside so a fenced in yard is a good thing to have. She's good with kids and other dogs. She's okay with cats as long as they don't go after her. She was abused at her previous home, which leads her to be cautious of some men. It takes a little time for her to warm up to others. Once she does though, she's extremely love able. I have a newborn and she's not too fond of her and I can't have that. That is why I need her gone ASAP.

    Hi, friends. I've been taking care of this little pit/boxer female puppy for several months. She is extremely human-friendly, but dog-aggressive. Last weekend she and my neighbors' dog got into a fight and my landlord has said she has to go. I was already working to find her a forever home, but things are now accelerated and I really need your help. I've tried every rescue I can find, animal shelters, local vets, my regular doggie daycare center ... everything I can think of. Everyone is sorry, but they can't help. I have two days to find her a home - even just a temporary place for her to live to buy her some time to get adopted. If you ... (Read More)have any ideas, please help. Dorothy and I are all ears.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Squeak is an active, playful and puppy-ish 14-month-old, 52-pound, glossy black female pit bull terrier looking for a loving guardian. Squeak LOVES other dogs and would be happiest in a home with another dog to pal around with. She regularly goes to doggie daycare and gets along with all dogs including the tiniest teacup Chihuahua. She has not yet been cat-tested. This fun girl is soft, loving and sweet; her tail is always happily wagging. Because she is still in her puppy chewing stage, she is crated when her foster mom can't keep an eye on her. Squeak can easily jump a four-foot fence, so if you have a fenced-in yard, it would need to ... (Read More)be six-foot high to keep her safely inside. Squeak is good with people of all ages including children. She knows the command sit and takes treats ever so gently from your fingers. She is housebroken, rides nicely in the car, and walks well on leash when wearing her gentle leader head harness. Squeak is extremely healthy, spayed, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Friends of Animal Care and Control. To meet and possibly adopt Squeak, please contact her foster mom Glenda at ssssnuggles@att.net or 708-447-4928. She is being fostered in Lyons, Illinois. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations, Abused/Neglected 

    Lady Bug is about a year old, house trained, knows some basic commands, and walks well on a leash. She's very sweet and loving with adults and older kids, (about 10 years old and up), but seems anxious around small children. She has had mixed responses to other dogs. Though she grew up with a cat, she has had issues with cats we've encountered recently, so she should be in a home without cats. From my understanding, she is not up-to-date on vaccines, and she is not spayed. She's a white and brindle bully breed, (maybe pit mix?), and approximately 40-45lb (and needs to put on some weight). She's a very sweet girl who loves attention and ... (Read More)thinks she's a lap dog. (Less)

    General is a loving dog that requires a lot of attention. He would best be placed in a home free of small children or other animals. He loves to snuggle and lay around but does not do well with kennelling. He would be a great fit for a bachelor or empty nesters.

    DOB 3/1/15 After seeing Minnie's shelter picture, we knew she needed out ASAP! She was so thin at only 25 lbs, and now after a lot of TLC from her foster, she is 40 lbs. Upon arriving on transport, she greeted everyone with tail wagging and kisses, she knew she was now safe. We think she might be lab/pit mix and about 1 yr old. After arriving at her foster home, she got to learn what being a puppy was all about, learning how to play and what a dog toy is. She has blossomed into a beautiful, happy, affectionate, active pup, who loves to go on walks. Minnie is not a fan of the crate, but doesn't need one since she does great without one. ...

Now that she has been shown what life should be like, she is looking for someone who is home most of the day and can get out and get her exercised. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Callie. I am a pit bull mix and my age is somewhere between 5-7 years old. I have had a very rough life so far. I was dumped at animal control by an anonymous person and was pregnant with 6 puppies. I have had many litters in my life. I was such a great mommy! Thankfully HELP rescued me and my last litter from being euthanized because of my breed. Now, all of my puppies have found their forever homes and it's my turn. I have been spayed and am up to date on all my shots. I was used and abused by human hands. Left with multiple scars over my body, if only I could tell you what I've seen. I came from an abusive home. Sometimes I get ... (Read More)a little anxious when I'm left alone for long periods of time, as you can imagine now that I have love I don't want to be without it. When my family saved me, I was 15 pounds underweight, and because I had to fend for my food and territory I do not like other dogs or animals in my house. But don't worry I wouldn't hurt you around my toys or food. I just want your love. If I could be your one and only baby I would be perfect for you. I love to go on walks and roll around in the grass. I am good on the leash too! I know basic commands like sit and down, and I ask to go potty by scratching at the door. My favorite thing in the entire world is to be cuddled! I carry around a stuffed animal and keep it with me at all times. I love to play ball, and I'm very gentle when I bring it back. I play ball with my fosters family young child and she takes the ball out of my mouth and I just can't wait for her to throw it again. If you are willing to give me a chance I will show you my gentle spirit. Since being in foster care I have learned what life is truly about. I have learned that hands mean belly rubs and treats, not hitting. I have learned that new people in my house are there to greet me, not hurt me. My foster family tells me every day that I am special. I have spent the first half of my life not knowing when my next meal is coming. Will you start the second chapter as my forever home? A special home for a special dog! Callie should be the only pet in the house and never around other dogs. Callie does well around children she loves to play and sleep with the children in my foster house. Callie would do best in a home with knowledge in dog behavior that can continue to enrich the life of a once broken spirited dog. She has come a long way since rescued from animal control but her story shouldn't end here. I go everyday with my foster daddy to work and love to greet all the people that see me everyday. I think people even come back just to see me. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Fearful/Anxious 

    Lola is an amazing, beautiful, smart and loyal girl. She is about 1-2 years old as estimated by our vet. We have guesses on her breed but of course without a DNA test we can not be sure what exactly she is. What we do know is this wonderful dog has been with us since we rescued her from a local shelter on Valentine's Day of this year. When we pulled her from the shelter we noticed she had a leg injury because she was walking on only 3 legs but we didn't know to what extent. When we got her to our vet they diagnosed her with elbow dysplasia which would require an expensive surgery. She has finally received her surgery and is healing ... (Read More)slowly. On walks she usually still hobbles on 3 legs and doesn't often put weight on her bad leg. The vet thinks it is now a learned behavior and she may never decide to walk on all fours again. She has been using the leg more often now that we have put a gentle leader on her for walks and have been doing training on her once a week. Unfortunately Lola's leg isn't the only thing working against her, shortly after she got to her foster home she went after their dog and their cat. She will have to be the ONLY dog in the home. We have been working on her in the home and on walks in order to get her to refer to her handler when another dog is around instead of focusing on it. She makes huge improvements every single time we work with her. She is such an intelligent dog and is extremely friendly with humans of all ages. She loves to cuddle up with anyone who will give her the time of day and she is so mellow. Lola will need an experienced adopter who is willing to continue her training. She would benefit from having an adopter with a pool that she could swim in or someone who would be willing to get her into aquatic therapy. Someone who lives on a farm or out in the country or a quiet area would be perfect. This way she could relax because there wouldn't be dogs walking past the house consistently. She would love a fenced in yard to run around and play in privacy without the distraction of other dogs. Lola truly is an amazing dog, I can't say that enough! Everyone who meets her says she is the 'perfect dog' but unfortunately so far everyone who has met her has another dog in their home. If you have no pets and are considering Lola please take the chance and come meet her, you will NOT be disappointed!!!! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-18-00757Rosie (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Rosie is a very sweet girl who loves to cuddle and get lots of belly rubs! She is approx. 3 years old and gets along very well with other dogs - in fact, she would probably prefer a forever home with a playmate. She loves to run and lie in the sun so a fenced in yard would be wonderful for her. She is crate trained and housebroken and very well-behaved. Very gentle and affectionate, would be perfectly content laying on the sofa with you as you watched TV or even accompanying you on your morning jog. Rosie was an owner surrender when they got evicted and I offered to be a foster mom because I know pitties have a bad rep and I wanted to find ... (Read More)her a perfect forever home worthy of her sparkling personality. She has been a treasure during fostering, behaving even better than my 3 own rescued furbabies! However, I have been 'reminded' by my town that the ordinance allows 3 dogs max per home, so Rosie's time as my foster furbaby must come to an end. Please contact me for more info. (Less)

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 

    All Suzie wants for Christmas is a real home who will love and care for her forever! Suzie was in a high kill shelter and out of time. She had been picked up as a stray and was not claimed. Beautiful 55 pound, happy, girl about 2 to 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 ... (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: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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.

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. 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.
