    DOB 5/4/14 40 lbs Miss Affectionate Emma is ready to find her forever home! We are guessing her to possibly be Border Collie/ Pit Mix. She loves cuddles, kisses and belly rubs. Everyone who meets her says how sweet she is, with good manners. She loves people, even strangers. Watching her play and run around the yard, her foster mom believes she would love to participate in agility classes. Also, Emma would make a great running partner. Running, chasing , and playing with the other dogs in her foster home, is one of her favorite things to do. It has also been fun watching her learn to play with toys, which she now enjoys. Currently not ... (Read More)crated, she is fine loose in the house, since her foster mom is with her all day but she is crate trained. Not uncommon, she is not a fan of loud noises like storms, the vacuum, and sensitive to 'yelling'.

The more foster homes we have, the more puppies and dogs we can save from high kill shelters.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

    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)

We had a couple possibilities that unfortunately did not work but by no fault his other than he doesn't get along well with cats apparently :( The longer he stays at the kennel the worse it is for his state of mind so time is of the essence!!!!

We also suggest kids be at least 12 years old just to avoid any potential problems with over-excitement. ... (Read More)If anybody can help please do. Btw- Bark Avenue will pick up the bill for anything he needs until he gets to a forever home so I'm not asking any of my rescue friends to take on a financial burden just get him in front of people for us so he can find a home.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bronco is a one year old itty bitty pittie! He is too cute and so much fun. This boy loves human affection and is super playful. He'd probably due best in a home without young kids that he could knock over accidentally. I seriously adore this guy. Please come meet him and see if he might just be the best friend you didn't know you were missing. Adopters must live within 50 miles of Tinley Park.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult


    **NEW FOSTER OR ADOPTER NEEDED ASAP** Cady MUST be out of her current foster home by Sunday 7/17 and she will not have her own couch to rest on nor her own humans to snuggle with, rather she will sit in a kennel, as boarding will be our only other option. You see, through an unfortunate event that occurred last week that involved a small dog in the neighborhood where Cady has been fostered for the past 6 weeks, she is no longer able to stay there......through that event, we have been able to confirm Cady is true to her breed (pointer), her prey drive seems to be high, she can not live with small dogs or other small pets...she seems to much ...

    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)

A volunteer says: Ritz was friendly and wagging his tail when we walked up to his cage. He was a little unsure at first when out, but warmed up nicely. Fine with handling teeth, ears, feet, coat. Not interested in toys, can take a bone from him and just ate his food faster. He will also try to sucker a treat from you with those gorgeous eyes!! Ritz was unsure what to do with other dogs. He met a male and two females. He doesn't have anything negative to say, just needs to get more ... (Read More)comfortable over time and learn how to be a dog. He seems like a lost soul who has been on his own for some time. He needs someone to be his anchor and show him the world is a kind and safe place full of love, good food and warm beds. Ritz was sadly found in a home by the police and fire department, when the porch was on fire! The home had been foreclosed and although there was a family of squatters no one claimed Ritz to be theirs, so he needs a real family now. He is now officially a Safe Humane Chicago Court Case Dog, was evaluated by a professional/certified dog trainer and comes with a lifetime of free behavior/training support, if needed. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-05-00794Rose (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hello everyone! I'm Rose, and I'm looking for my forever home with the help of my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation. True to my name, I'm a beautiful bud, just beginning to blossom. You see, I'm still learning what it means to be loved as part of a family. My former home was not the best, and I was one of several neglected dogs who became part of a court case, which landed me at Chicago Animal Care and Control. But with the help of Fetching Tails and my foster family, I'm leaving all of that in the past! I'm listed as a ... (Read More)2-year-old American pit bull terrier mix, and at a smallish 40 pounds, I think I'm the ideal size for a lap dog, don't you? My foster family calls me 'Pretty Girl' because I'm such an attractive dark chocolate brown with a mosaic of caramel and cream on my throat and chest. My deep brown eyes are very expressive. I've had a litter of pups fairly recently, but my goal is to regain my girlish figure before swimsuit season ends. So what's in a name? Rose is a flower associated with love, and I'm all about that! We 'pitties' enjoy being pampered a bit, and I'm no different. I just want to be with my family, to have them pet me and provide plenty of attention. If guests come over, they can love on me, too. Men, women, kids - I adore them all. I have to make up for lost time, you know! As Willie Shakespeare wrote, 'A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.' I'm told that definitely describes me: Very sweet, and beautiful inside as well as outside. Remember when I said I'm a rose bud, just starting to blossom? I'm was kept confined in a small crate, so I'm crate trained, and I'm mostly house trained, but since potty manners didn't matter in my previous home, I still have some occasional accidents. My foster family is helping me master this so I'll be ready for my forever home. I'm experimenting with this whole idea of playing with toys, and I think I like it! I'm a really good girl, and eager to buff out the rough edges. Foster mom says I've come so far in a short amount of time! Yes, I'm definitely blossoming. So what am I looking for in my perfect home? Well, lots of people to love and pet me are a must! Lots of those toys I mentioned. A fenced yard is always nice, but not a necessity as long as you're willing to take me for daily walks and play with me indoors, too. Most importantly, I want to be a cherished and valued family member. And since I hope to put the finishing touches on my skills, we'll want to take some training classes together. I know I'll make you proud of me! Am I your Rose? Are you the one to help me come into full bloom? If so, I'm waiting for you. Please contact Fetching Tails Foundation so I don't have to wait any longer! Love from Rose If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us! Adoption Requirements: *Be at least 21 years of age *Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household *Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) *Have a valid ID with current address *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment *Lives in 50 mile radius of Itasca within the Illinois border Adoption Fees: Senior dog - 8 years and up, $75 Adult or young dog - 6 months to 7 years, $250 Puppies - under 6 months, $350 (Less)

He is wonderful with people of all ages. He knows the commands sit, down paw, other paw, high-five and seal (you just have to see it!) He's very gentle taking even the smallest treat from your fingers. He'll also catch treats mid-air, one after another. Jerry LOVES to swim in pools or lakes. He also loves to play ball. Jerry was originally adopted from a shelter in Wisconsin. He had been a cruelty case after someone beat him ... (Read More)with a metal pole. He has a scar on his leg and doesn't appreciate being cornered. But, he is full of tail wags and kisses even with new people when he meets them. Jerry is a very healthy senior; full of energy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly heartworm prevention as well as flea prevention. His adoption fee of $50 benefits rescued dogs. To meet and possibly adopt Jerry, please contact Kristina at msdemma@gmail.com or 847-533-9513. He is currently living in Chicago's Edison Park neighborhood. Jerry has never lived with a cat or other small animal. He gets along with female dogs, however he does not get along with other male dogs. He is looking for a quiet home where he doesn't have to interact with male dogs. Ideally, he would be best as the one and only pet in the home to soak up all the love and attention in his golden years. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-29-00301Nova (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Deaf 

    Watch out, there's a super Nova bursting at ACl! This gorgeous 11 month old pittie mix is such a stunner - her white coat and grey bandit mask are sure to have heads turning whenever you take her for a walk! Nova arrived at ACL as a stray, and her owners neglected to come get her again. Their loss is our gain - Nova is wonderful. She's gentle, sweet, and dying for human companionship. She needs a bit of training to get her over the puppy hump - she still gets excited and jumpy like any puppy does. With regular exercise and attention, though, she settles right down. Nova is good with other dogs, and she'd really thrive in an environment with ... (Read More)a more experienced pooch to lead her through life. She's been a great sidekick to other playful, confident pups here, and we think her best home fit has another dog to bond with. Because of her size and energy level, Nova is good with dog-savvy kids of any ages, but no cats, please. Nova is partially to fully deaf - she is extremely responsive to gestures and facial expressions, and she'll need minimal extra training to help her adapt to her disability in a home. ACL would be happy to provide adopters with more information about working with dogs with hearing restrictions. (Less)

His favorite things are bully sticks, rope toys, tug of war, sticks, large plastic juice containers and apples!

He is looking for a home in a quiet neighborhood as the only pet in the home. To meet and possibly foster and/or adopt Graham, please contact Diana at drozimek@yahoo.com or 773-899-1960.

    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.

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.

    George is a gorgeous, glossy, brindle and white, 66-pound, five-year-old, very calm, male Pit Bull Terrier looking for a loving guardian. George is full of tail wags and smiles. He's quite the mellow dude who loves to snuggle with his favorite people. He's not a jumper and doesn't get the zoomies. George loves people, but has not been socialized with other animals so he is best as the only pet in an all-adult home. He loves going on walks and is great on leash, but he is not a running partner, he gives up after about three minutes. He is extremely smart and beautifully-trained. He knows the commands sit, down, paw, and when you say 'time ... (Read More)for bed George,' he goes right into his crate for the night. And, when you say 'Boom Boom,' he rolls over and plays dead. Once he trusts you, he loves belly rubs and takes treats gently from your fingers. George is housebroken and crate-trained.

A volunteer reports: 'Last night when I was leaving, I saw this family dumping their dog outside of the building. They couldn't even take the extra 5 minutes to bring her inside. The dog originally had a collar and leash, but when I went outside, the teenage daughter had caught the dog and apparently taken them off.

    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.

She has not yet been cat-tested. This fun girl is soft, loving and sweet; her tail is always happily wagging.

    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).

    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 and get scared ... (Read More)when people get mad around me. I use to lower my head when approached to be petted. Sometimes I get a little anxious when I'm left alone for long periods of time. When my foster mom 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. 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 mommy 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 older children, and loves sleeping in the bed at night. She gets anxious in confined spaces such as kennels. 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. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-02-00476Suzie (female)

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)

    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. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. 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.
