American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Rae may have had a tough life, but she sure has a beautiful spirit! She's a 2 year old bully breed mix who arrived at ACL as a stray. She had some injuries and scars that indicate a rough early life, but she couldn't be sweeter! Rae loves giving kisses and hugs to people - she's got a huge heart that can't wait to find a family! Rae is housebroken and good on her leash - she is eager to please and will continually check in with her handler to make sure she's going what they want. Right now, Rae is reactive toward other dogs - she gets very excited and makes a unique Rae 'squeal' instead of a bark when she sees them! We're confident that with ... (Read More)time to adjust and relax in a real home, Rae can learn to befriend dogs again, but for now, she'd prefer to be the only pup in the home. We can't say how she'd do with cats, though she doesn't seem to have a strong interest in small animals. Rae is destined to be a warm, snuggly couch potato - you just provide the couch! (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hello! This is Phoenix. We've had him for 2 years now, after rescuing him from PAWS at 4 months old. He is in perfect health, knows his commands (sit, lay down, off, go, stay, okay, etc), he's absolutely house trained with no problems ever in that department. Circumstances in our lives are forcing us to make a decision we never thought we'd be making. So here we are, trying to find a wonderful new home for this happy guy. Honestly, we don't want money, we simply want to know that he is going to a family that will love him and continue to keep him happy and healthy, instead of a shelter. He is a loving, loyal, and super energetic dog. He ... (Read More)loves nothing more than running, being chased, and chasing anything that moves (dogs, balls, frisbees, squirrels, rabbits, etc etc). He'll play fetch for days if you're up for it. We go to the dog park every day so he can get his energy out. He loves to meet every single dog and be a part of whatever pack may be forming on any particular day. He is deeply curious about everything. He is a little wary of new people--it takes him a second to submit to someone new, but once he does, he is immediately on his back and ready for a tummy rub. Once he trusts you, he will love you with every ounce of his being. Though he loves to play, he loves to snuggle and nap equally as much! His favorite thing is to curl up right next to you under a blanket, or under the sheets of your bed ;) He also loves a good body massage, as he is a ball of lean muscle! He loves attention, and is happy to just follow you around wherever you go in the hopes you might stop and give him some love. Ideally, we'd love to find him a family that will send us a few photos and videos once in a while to let us know that he is happy, loved, and living his best life, as we never thought we'd be saying goodbye to a beautiful life we rescued a few years back. Have courage and be kind--it's how we try to live our lives, and we are trying to be as courageous as possible here, because this is one of the hardest decisions we've ever had to make. Please be kind in return, and we will know that your family will be the right fit for this amazing guy. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Beefy, juicy, and delicious - that's our Brisket! He's a 6 month old American Staffordshire Terrier puppy who is just the cutest meatball you've ever met. He arrived at ACL as a baby puppy when we was just a month old - he had been found outside and rescued by a police officer! Brisket was adopted, but sadly the other dogs in his home was not interested in his puppy shenanigans, and now he's back at ACL looking for his forever. Brisket loves people and other dogs, and he just wants to play play play all day! He's in his mouthy puppy phase, so he needs a hearty adopter who is excited to teach Brisket all the things he needs to learn to be a ... (Read More)well-adjusted adult. We're requiring Brisket go to a home with another dog who will play with him and show him the ropes - it's very important for puppies who are separated from their littermates young to learn good manners from other dogs. Brisket can be slow to recognize cues of irritation from other dogs, so he really needs a tolerant, equally playful young dog to be his guide. Brisket will do best in an adult home who understand that puppies like to use their mouths to play! We also ask that Brisket attend a basic obedience class within two months of adoption. (Less)

We got her along with her brother. She is house broken and knows commands. She loves to cuddle, run, and play. She is a good guard dog. However, She has recently gotten increasingly aggressive towards her brother and now prevents him from eating, and bites him (not playful) whenever they go outside together.

I was rescued from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where I was brought after being found as a stray. I waited patiently for someone to notice me, and my Fetching friends fell in love immediately when they were at the shelter looking for doggies to save! I am having so much fun now that I am safe with my rescue, and love to soak up all the attention I get from all my new friends! I have an infectious, bubbly personality and make everyone around me smile when I pull out my my favorite stuffie toys or tennis balls. Just try to resist my charms when I approach you with my head tilted to the side and a ball hanging out of my mouth; just kidding, it is impossible! I also enjoy going for walks and rolling over for belly rubs. I get along great with other dogs and would do well with a canine BFF who is active and will like my silliness when I am in full play mode. I am working very hard on my house manners so I can be the best version of myself possible, too! I am crate trained and working on mastering potty training; with a consistent schedule and a little patience I will be a potty pro in no time! Fetching Tails encourages all adopters to sign their new pups up for training classes; I am a very smart girlie and a total people pleaser so I think we would have a great time together in class learning all those neat tricks and commands I see my friends do and bonding with each other, as well. Doesn't that sound like so much fun? If something sounds fun, I am definitely there for it! So, what are you waiting for? Hurry up and fill out that adoption application so we can start our fun, happy, loving life together! I can't wait to make you smile as wide as I do!

Rescue Me ID: 18-02-15-00271Hart (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Oh my heart, it's Hart! This handsome devil is a 2 year old supermutt - we think he has some AmStaff and maybe some German Short-haired Pointer, but it's hard to say! He's a blend of many delicious flavors. Hart has had a tough life so far - he arrived at ACL from a local animal control where he had been found as a very skinny, very nervous stray. Hart is a sweet guy who loves attention and already has been picking up on commands! He's a total genius when it comes to training. It's clear that Hart was never anyone's pet - he doesn't have a lot of manners yet, and he still can get overexcited when there's lots of excitement around. Despite ... (Read More)his early troubles, Hart has made huge strides in the short time we've had him - we are confident that a stable home with some time to adjust will turn Hart into the perfect pooch! He's housebroken and great on his leash. He'll do well with calm, tolerant other dogs who can give him some time to calm down, but no cats or small animals please. Because he's still learning coping skills, he'll do best in adult homes only. Hart has a required enrollment in 'A Sound Beginning' training program at the time of adoption to help him learn the basics about home living. See asoundbeginningprogram.com for more info on this training program! (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi friends! My name is Jody and I am a smart, sassy pretty lady who is looking for a lifetime of love and fun! I am a 2-year-old, 30-pound pittie princess who is available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I have gorgeous fur that is as white as snow, but my unique face really highlights my personality! My brindle-colored spot on my face brings attention to my eyes filled with devotion. I am always getting compliments on my big, silly ears! And can we talk about my heart-shaped nose? That pretty much sums me up: I ... (Read More)wear my heart on my sleeve, err, face! Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where I was brought in as a stray. I much prefer the rescue life to living on the streets, let me tell you! I love hanging out in the fenced yard where I can sniff and play my favorite game called zoomies (foster mommy says I could be an Olympic-level sprinter!) I love to zoom and could chase a ball all day if you are into playing fetch. I am also a HUGE fan of long walks, and would even be a good running buddy if you need a partner to keep you motivated...I am happy to go at whatever pace you prefer. I am a great coach, as my happy tails just keeps wagging the whole time! But my favorite activity in the whole, wide world is playing with toys. And by playing, I mean seeing how fast I can chew them apart! Foster mommy says I am proving to be an excellent quality tester of so-called indestructible toys, but I love that she always has more toys waiting for me. I hope my adopter will continue to enable my toy habit! But I am not an overly energetic girl: when playtime is over, nothing makes me happier than curling up on your lap or under your arm for a snuggle while we relax on the couch. I definitely excel at enjoying that lounging lifestyle, too! I am a special girl who is looking for a very special home. I can be shy with new people, so I would love a calm, quiet home with a devoted, savvy dog person to call my own. I would do best in a childless home as the little humans spook me. Other than my shyness, I am a very well-behaved girl with great manners! I have attended training classes to work on my confidence and know so many commands including sit, watch, down, and leave it. I am potty and crate trained, too. I love to learn (especially when I get my favorite snacks such as apples, bananas or carrots as a reward!), and FTF will require my adopter to continue lessons with my trainer (and good pal!) so I can adjust well to your home. I think it will be fun to show my forever person everything I have learned so far and continue to learn and bond with them so we can have the best life together! I am looking for that one special person who wants my delightful company, will enjoy training classes with me, and who will enjoy a nice walk then cuddle session afterwards. If you think you could give me the home I have always dreamed about, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon! I just can't wait to start our fairy 'tail' happily ever after together! Love, Jody ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS, NO EXCEPTIONS: *ADOPTION FEE: $250 *Be at least 21 years of age *Live in a 50-mile radius of Itasca, within the Illinois border *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 (please provide proof of address if ID address is not up-to-date) *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment *TRAINING IS REQUIRED!

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-28-00205Kaia (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Stunning Kaia wants you to dive on into her heart - her name does mean 'sea' in Hawaiian after all! Kaia is a one year old terrier mix who's a great medium size at about 35 pounds. She has a unique dilute brindle coat and the biggest, saddest, sweetest eyes around. Kaia came to ACL from a local animal control where she had been surrendered when her owners lost their home. Kaia is a high intensity lady - she has a lot of love to give, a lot of places to be, a lot of stuff to do. She's just a lot of goodness in a small package! Because Kaia is an emotional, highly intuitive dog, she can also be anxious about new situations and new people. Like ... (Read More)many terriers, Kaia thrives with structure and consistency. She loves it when she knows the rules - it makes her feel safe to have a human who will guide her and let her know what's good and bad. Emotional pups like Kaia are so eager to love you - if you're her leader, she's happy to be your good little soldier! Kaia is super smart, and she would be a superstar at an agility class. You should see this girl solve a puzzle toy like it's no big deal! Because of her strong personality, Kaia is a good fit for active adult families only. She enjoys other dogs on a case by case basis. No cats please! Please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org for info on meeting this lovely girl. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-06-00194Drake (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Drake, like his Canadian rap superstar namesake, is quite the hit with the ladies. A handsome, medium-sized shepherd mix, Drake is an affectionate, tolerant, happy-go-lucky dog who only needs one warm look and a goofy smile to make the dames fall over him! Drake was found by some concerned citizens running loose in the woods. He was never reclaimed, but someone else's loss might be your gain! Drake is almost 4 years old, and he's got all those adult dog behaviors on lock - he's housetrained, active but mellows out, and friendly with people big and small after a proper introduction. He's a very vocal player, so it takes a bit of getting used ... (Read More)to when he whines and growls while tossing his toy around. It's all talk, though - Drake wants nothing more than to have a confident, kind human companion to hang out with! He is not comfortable with other dogs and cats, and he can be reactive towards other animals on leash. Because of this, Drake will have to be a solo dog for life, but his good temper and playful spirit are more than enough love for the right family. He'll do best in a smaller home with lots of dog experience and no children. Drake would love someone to be his leader and show him how great life can be outside of the shelter. If you're interested in meeting Drake, please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org for more info! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-11-00319Maybeline (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Ever hear the slogan: Maybe she's born with it, maybe it's Maybeline? Hi, I am Maybeline! And I was definitely born with a sweet, tender, sensitive soul and the looks of a supermodel! I am a five-month-old mixed-breed puppy (my momma looked like a lab/shepherd mix) who is looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. I currently weigh in at 23 pounds, though I still have some growing to do. And my gorgeous chocolate and licorice-colored brindle pattern isn't a fancy make-up job: I am naturally this beautiful! ... (Read More)Best of all: my loving personality outshines even my stunning good looks! I came to Chicagoland and Fetching Tails Foundation with my littermates from the Tunica Humane Society in Mississippi. Our momma Maria is a well-known stray dog who my friends at the THS have been trying to save from the streets for a couple years. She just won't let the lovely ladies catch her, but always lets her human angels know when she has had a litter and led them to my siblings and me. When my foster momma saw our pictures, she jumped at the chance to help us find forever homes so we made the big journey north when we were old enough! I have really blossomed since joining my foster family; I am more shy than my siblings, but am coming out of my shell a lot thanks to love of my foster parents and the other doggies in their home. My littermates have outgoing personalities, and encourage me to enjoy the world with them. I would love to have a friendly, outgoing dog in my forever home who will continue to nurture me and help me find my confidence. I just relax and am happier when I have a canine companion to follow. I also really love to play with my doggie BFFs; nothing makes me happier than playing chase in the yard with my littermates or the older resident dogs in my foster home, so I would also love to have a fenced yard at my forever home when I can romp and zoom around to my heart's content! I can be a little shy when meeting new people, so I think a calm home with older kids if you have children would be a better fit for me. It takes me a little bit to loosen up when I meet new people, but once I know you are loving and kind, I am the most affectionate little lady who loves to dole out sweet kisses while I receive tender pets! I have pretty wonderful house manners for a young pup, and am learning more all the time! I am working on mastering potty training; I just need consistent reminders and positive reinforcement to get me all the way to 100 percent, and should be there in no time once I learn the routine and schedule of my forever home. I am also crate trained, and do well in my little doggie den while my foster mommy goes to work or runs errands for 3-4 hours at a time. Fetching Tails Foundation requires adopters of young puppies to sign us up for training so we can learn how to be the best version of ourselves, and I think training classes will really help me continue to gain confidence while I learn all the fun tricks and commands I see my older doggie friends doing. More than anything, I just want a loving, patient family who will love me completely and show me that the world we build together is happy and safe. If you think you could be the special person to love me and never let me go, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them beautiful Maybelline is the little lady for you! Puppy kisses and cuddles, Maybeline Please read all adoption requirements and adoption fee's below! *TRAINING IS REQUIRED! THE PUPPY MUST BE SIGNED UP FOR TRAINING AFTER 14 DAYS OF THE ADOPTION!

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
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! My name is Nora, and I am a beautiful 3-year-old 'pittie' princess who is looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. If I could be a little vain for a second, I just have to point out that I really am a gorgeous lady: I have striking silver and white fur, and I look like I am wearing socks on my feet because of my white paws! My big floppy Minnie Mouse ears perfectly highlight my soulful, loving hazel eyes. I weigh about 50 pounds, and I am a full-grown beauty. My friends from Fetching Tails saved me ... (Read More)through the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention and Support Program they co-founded at Chicago Animal Care and Control. My former owner could no longer keep me because of landlord issues, but thankfully CRISP volunteers were at animal control that day and I got to go home with a loving foster mommy instead of going inside the busy, loud shelter. I am a shy girl, so CACC would have been really scary for me. Instead, I am adjusting to home life with my awesome foster family and I get a second shot at a new life! I was very shy at first, but my foster parents are making everything a fun, positive learning experience for me and I am a confident girl now! I love it when they talk to me and let me know that my life is going to be amazing from now on. I would do well with forever humans who are experienced dog owners, and can continue to work with me on all the fun tricks and commands I have learned. I am a very smart girl and I respond well to positive reinforcement (especially if I get tasty treats as a reward!) when working on my manners and commands. I get to take training classes with my foster parents, and believe me when I say it is my favorite day of the week! It is so much fun to be the smartest girl in class! I have learned commands including sit, stay, lay down, look, touch, swing, and to sit calmly when new friends greet me. I also have good house manners, too. I am potty trained, crate trained, and I do well on walks. Don't I just sound like an amazing catch?! Not only am I a scholar, but I also know how to have a good time. I LOVE going for my walkies with my foster mommy, daddy, and canine brother. We take long, leisurely strolls through the neighborhood and I get to see and smell all the amazing wonders of the world. I also enjoy playtime with my doggie brother. I get along with other dogs with a slow introduction, so if you have a canine friend we can meet up for a doggie date and see if our energy levels are compatible. And not to humble-brag, but I am also cat-friendly, too! Some of my favorite activities include playing zoomies so it would be fun to have a fenced yard in which to run and romp, and I love to cuddle in front of the TV with my family when we are all done playing. I hope my piggy snores don't bug you too much, I get so relaxed and comfortable that I just can't help but fall asleep while snuggling! And did I mention yet how much I love to eat? I have learned so much so fast because I am very treat motivated and will do anything to please my people in exchange for a tasty snack! I am loving and kind, and all I want more than anything in the world is a family who will love me let me be the confident, happy-go-lucky doll I am meant to be! If you treat me with patience and kindness, I will repay you with endless tail wags and pittie kisses! If you think I could be the girl for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and let them know Nora sent you! I can't wait to start our forever together! XOXOX, Nora If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!
