Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Yahtzee is a one year old ball of playful energy! He's an American Bulldog/pittie mix who came into the shelter as an unclaimed stray. He has a wonderful temperament - he's immediately affectionate and confident with all people. He's a high energy dog who will benefit from lots of exercise and play - maybe he can be a running partner or go for hikes? Yahtzee would be good with older children 10 and up who can handle his exuberance - he gets excited and jumps up, but it's only to lick your face! This bundle of joy would be suitable for another dog of similar energy - he'd love a play partner. He's very intelligent, so training would be a ... (Read More)great way to direct some of his excitement into something productive. if you're looking for an active, fun-loving partner for adventures, just yell, 'Yahtzee!' (Less)

    Please help this baby girl find a home. Her name is diamond. I unfortunately can't give her the love and care she deserves any more. I currently have to move and I can't take her with me. I would like to avoid bringing her to any type of shelter because the type of breed she is and how old she is they will probably put her down. She has high energy and gets very excited but she is such a wonderful dog. She loves to give kisses! If you have anymore questions or would like to meet her please give me a call at either 7082638714 or 7085394871

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-23-00486Polo (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Polo is a very handle-able, energetic and sweet, two-year-old, male shepherd/terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Polo absolutely loves other dogs (not cats) and plays regularly in doggie play groups. He knows the commands sit, shake, down, stay, and (usually) drop and is working on loose-leash walking. He's a loving and appreciative dog who's goofy and friendly. Polo landed at Chicago Animal Care and Control and was such a volunteer favorite that he is now living happily in a foster home with another dog who he loves to play with. He loves going to the dog park and hasn't met a dog he didn't play nicely with! He's also an ... (Read More)excellent running companion. Although Polo is 99% housebroken, he is looking for a home where someone either works from home, comes home at lunch-time, or has a dog-walker '| he needs a mid-day break! He is quietly crate-trained, but not for over four hours without a break. Polo is usually very gentle, but he can get a bit mouthy/jumpy when excited, so he would do best in a home with teens and adults. Polo is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Animal Care and Control. To meet and possibly adopt Polo, please contact Kat at kat@fcacc.org for an adoption application. Or if you have further questions about his behavior, please contact his foster mom at kathryn.lachey@gmail.com He is currently being fostered in the Bucktown/Logan Square neighborhood in Chicago.

    Tyson is a young, energetic yet calm pit bull. He loves to cuddle and loves people. He's not so good with small children. He has bad allergies and is losing fur. He itches a lot. When we took him to the vet, they said it can't be any disease, so we believe it's allergies. We can no longer afford him and are moving soon. We need to find him a home as soon as possible. He needs a home that has time, money and can give him as much love as possible. He's friendly with other dogs, but can be too friendly. He tends to bark a lot to try and get the other dogs attention.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jack came to my daughter's house as a stray dog about 5 years ago. We knew if we turned him in he would most likely be euthanized. Jack is a good dog, but does not like to be disciplined. He can chew through almost anything. And although he was completely house-trained at one time, lately he leaves his scent here and there throughout the house. I believe the problem might be the other dogs I have. I want Jack to go to a GOOD home - a dog or pitbull lover who is willing to work with Jack and re-train him. If he didn't work out, I would always be willing to take him back.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Boss is an amazingly affectionate 6 year old dog who has been passed around shelters for well over a year. His favorite thing to do is lick your face!! Boss unfortunately gets passed by at the shelter time and time again, maybe because of his size and/or pit label? He may do best in a home without small kids or other dogs only because of his size and some toy guarding issues. However, the guarding issues can definitely be overcome with time and patience! He is doing fantastic in training and already knows sit, down, paw (both), and heel. He really is just a big goofy lovebug. Please give this guy the chance at life he deserves- I ...

    Jimbo is such a sweet dog that has been passed around shelters for far too long. He has a lot of energy and is very intelligent, so he definitely doesn't do well living in a cage. Jimbo absolutely loves playing with toys! Because of his high energy level, Jimbo would likely do best in a home without young children. He is strong but would respond very well to training, and he already knows a few basic commands. He is very wiggly and affectionate : ) Jimbo just needs a family to call his own to play with and exercise him!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Leo is a very friendly dog. He was about 7 months old when I got him and had a broken rib and weighed about 40 pounds. He is now very healthy and weighs about 90 pounds. He is not nurtured and pretty energetic. He loves to cuddle. He does really good at the dog park and loves to go to the forest preserves and run around off leash. He doesn't run away and He loves to swim. He currently has a brother who is about a year older and a little bit smaller. They get along great and are best friends. They love to spend hours swimming in a lake or pool and love to play fetch even tho Leo doesn't give the ball back. He currently knows how to sit and ... (Read More)give paw. He is starting to get the hang on lay down if you repeat it and point at the ground. We are working on drop it but he doesn't like that command very much and even when he does drop his toy he usually picks it up right away. He does growl sometimes when he's playing tug of war but it's a playful growl. He also growls when he feels threatened but he usually gets sent to his cage when he growls and he's really good about that and will usually get in his cage right away. He does like to cry in when he's in his cage though. I would really love to keep him but I am moving out of state and it just won't be possible. I have about 2 weeks to find him a new home or else I will have to end up giving him up to a shelter and I would really hate to do that since he is a out bull and a big dog. I'm afraid he will be stuck in the shelter for to long or will end up getting out down. If interested please contact me ASAP. I'm starting to run out of options. (Less)

    Shabba is a very hyper and energetic dog. Good for people that like to stay active. Once he has had his workout he is very calm and gentle.

He is approximately 11 months old. It breaks our hearts to have to re-home him, but due to an extreme (and unforeseen) change in employment hours, we don't feel we can give him the 'out-of-cage' time that he deserves. He is crate trained, sits, gives paw, and is working on the ... (Read More)'down' command, as he has a tendency to jump when excited. Likes to play Frisbee, has been known to hog the covers and pillows, and LOVES Beggin' Strips treats (or 'Bacon' as he knows it).

We have been trying for over a month to find him a new family, with no luck. If not re-homed by Wed July 8, we will have no other option but to try to place him in a shelter.*****STILL AVAILABLE AS OF 7/15/15 (Less)

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

    Rocky has been with our family since he was a year and a half. His original owner got him at 8 weeks old and abandoned him at a year and a half. He is amazing with my 3.5 year old daughter and never aggressive towards anyone in our home. He loves to run around in the yard and chase birds and squirrels. He loves to cuddle as well. His downfall is that loud noises such as fireworks scare him and he needs some basic obedience training on a leash, but none the less he is the biggest sweetheart around. The reason for rehoming is that I am a single mom and with school starting this fall, I am finding it harder and harder to afford an animal and I ...

She is doing well with a cat in her current foster home. Rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control, Chelsea had been found living alone in an abandoned house on the West side of Chicago in the bitter cold of winter. Thanks to Realtors to the Rescue, she was scooped up to safety. The poor girl was scarred, emaciated, full of worms, and had clearly been used for breeding. Chelsea is a funny dog in both personality and in physique. Her limbs and joints are malformed so she has a bow-legged bulldog stance on a tiny pit bull-like body. But Chelsea is anything but immobile. She is energetic and wiggly and loves galloping in a fenced in yard. Last Thanksgiving, Chelsea suffered a slipped disc in her lower spine. After a round of steroids, pain meds and muscle relaxers, Chelsea bounced back nicely. She is now healthy, spayed, de-wormed, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccines, and heartworm-tested.

    Mufasa is a handsome, calm and well-behaved, four-year-old, male brindle and white Mastiff/Pit-mix looking for a loving guardian. Mufasa was found stray in Chicago, oddly, lying on a blanket in the middle of a city street. A dog-lover moved the blanket to an abandoned lot and Mufasa followed. Caring passers by earned Mufasa's trust by feeding the hungry boy cheeseburgers and brought him to Chicago Animal Care and Control. He was then transferred to the Animal Care League and is now healthy and ready for a loving home. Mufasa loves going on walks. He would love a guardian who will take him to training class and teach him new things. He ... (Read More)doesn't seem at all reactive to other dogs, but unfortunately he does like to chase cats. He is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested and micro-chipped.

    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.

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.

Tank was kept in a crate for most of his early life, and he has a few scars to prove it. Despite a rough puppyhood, he's full of snuggles for his people and loves attention. He's not very ...

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)

    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.

    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.

She is shy and timid outside the home and will ... (Read More)need a patient adopter who will give her time and space to adjust.

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.
