Rescue Me ID: 17-05-25-00179Kaia (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    If your idea of relaxation is staring out at the ocean with a cool drink in your hand, our resident Kaia might be the one for you! Kaia means 'sea' in Hawaiian, and we think this girl as the same tranquility-inducing properties! She's a one year old itty bitty pittie mix - she's only 32 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 the owners lost their home. Kaia is a timid lady who can be a little skittish when you first meet her, but she's all hugs and wiggles in just a few seconds. And she really does wrap her ... (Read More)arms around you in a hug! Kaia is good with other dogs, but she does prefer little dogs who don't intimidate her. Because she's a little on the nervous side here at the shelter, she'll do best with kids 6 and up. We don't know how she feels about cats. We do know that a little sweetness is all it takes to unlock Kaia's true nature - love! (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi there! My name is Xena, and if you are looking for an extra special, one-of-a-kind warrior princess to be your BFF, I could be the delightful, loving companion for you! I am a fabulous 8-month-old pittie mix, with gorgeous, unique brindle-patterned fur and ears that stand at attention to let you know I am always listening to you tell me how pretty I am. Best of all? My happy-go-lucky personality outshines even my beautiful physical looks! I was rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control by my amazing friends at Fetching ... (Read More)Tails Foundation. Let's get the sad stuff out of the way so we can focus on the positive ( because I am ALL about being positive and having a sunshine bright outlook on life!) I have two crushed discs in my lower spine, and because of that I am considered special needs. I have limited feeling in my hind end, so I can't really control my bladder or bowel and I also get around with a noticeable limp. BUT I have adapted to my condition very well and get around like a speed demon when I want to play....and let's be real, I LOVE to play and do zoomies as much as possible! I wear diapers to help with my potty issues, and I am very patient and cooperative when my foster mommy changes them for me. She will be happy to explain our diaper process to you so you can better understand my needs! I don't mind wearing them at all; I am a princess and I just think of them as a cute outfit to make me even more special and pretty! Now, let's get back to the fun stuff! I absolutely love life, and am having so much fun in my foster home. Like I said, I am a playful girl and nothing makes me happier than my many fun play times through the day: I love to play with toys and throw them all around the house so I can search them out and continue tossing them around. I think my favorite activity, though, is galloping around the yard with my dog friends. My foster mommy says I am her little busy body, and I like to know what everyone is up to in the house. But I also appreciate 'down time,' and when I am tired from playing I love to curl up for a nap on my comfy, cozy bed or snuggle on the couch with my humans. I soak up attention like a sponge, and adore cuddle times with my humans and dog friends, too. I have a great, even-mannered temperament: I can be silly and fun-loving when it is playtime, but I am also the biggest snuggle-bug when it is time to relax. When I think of my forever home, I dream of a family that will love me for me and give me all the affection and attention I crave. Nothing makes me happier than being around the people and canine friends I love most. I do fine when my foster parents have to leave the house for a few hours for work and errands and I rest comfortably in my dog bed while they are gone, but when they are home I like to be around them as much as possible. I also need to have a dog BFF in my forever home because I thrive with the companionship of canine friends. I get along great with all dogs, and read their personalities really well so I know when they want to play or when they have had enough of my silliness. I will also need my family to understand my special needs and be able to provide supplements as well as physical therapy as needed through my life. I might have more needs than the average dog, but like I am said I am unique and special and I think my devoted, endlessly happy personality and demeanor makes me worth it! If you think I could be the sweet, curious, lovebug for your family, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon! I can't wait to start my happily ever after with you! Puppy cuddles and kisses, Xena If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

    Hungry? Why not snap into a big beef stick like Beefaroo?! This big hunk is all beefcake - he's a big-headed, big-hearted lovable lug of a dog.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-12-00201Lucy (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    DEERFIELD, IL (not Tinley) Lucy does not act her age at all, so don't dismiss her as being a couch potato. Lucy walks at a quick pace (and will occasionally even run for a bit) and jumps on and off benches with ease. Lucy is a big snuggler and will plop herself into your lap and wriggle around excitedly while giving you lots of doggy kisses. She makes funny snuffling noises when she's happy, and several volunteers refer to her as 'the alien' because of her cute bulging eyes. If you've been thinking about opening your home to a senior, stop by soon to see if Lucy is the one for you!

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!

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Howdy! Are you looking for a lively, active, and devoted new best friend? My name is Cyla, and I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a gorgeous 1.5-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix. I am about 45 pounds and have stunning silver/blue fur that sparkles when the sun shines on me. I also have a darling white and pink patch on my nose; it is so cute that you won't be able to resist looking at my sweet, happy face all the time! I was saved by Fetching Tails Foundation through a program they ... (Read More)co-founded called CRISP (the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program.) My previous owners brought me to Chicago Animal Care and Control to give me up, but because of CRISP I found immediate rescue and never even had to enter the busy, overwhelming shelter! I was so happy to go to a foster home and start to learn how to be a loving family pet. When I was rescued, I wasn't potty trained, and foster mommy thinks I was never actually allowed inside a house before because I had a lot to learn, but I am a VERY smart young girl and have been an excellent scholar so far. I am now almost completely potty trained; with continued practice and patience while I settle into a routine I will have it perfected very soon! I have also learned to sit on command and am crate trained. I have more to learn, and would love a forever family who will take me to some training classes to continue to become the best version of myself. I love receiving praise and treats, and I hear you get a lot of both at training classes, so sign me up, please! When I think of my forever home, I think I would love an active couple who will play with me and take me for long walks; maybe I could even be your jogging buddy? I am an active girl, and would love a family that will be happy to keep up with me. Because of my energy level and play style, I would do best in a home with older, teen-aged children. I would also be very happy to be your one and only canine companion. I like to play with my toys can keep myself entertained (one of my favorite games is to throw a ball in the air so I can catch it!). And if it's not too much to ask, I would love a fenced yard so I could run around and play. What can I say? I am a young dog and play time is my favorite time! When I am done playing, I love to jump up in bed with you and roll around in the comfy blankets before we cuddle a bit. Doesn't that sound like the ideal life? I am a fun-loving, people-adoring, goofy girl; if I sound like I could be a good addition to your family, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon and let them know Cyla sent you! I can't wait to go on fun adventures with my forever family!

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Are you looking for a spunky new best friend who is full of life and happiness? Hi there, my name is Astra and I am an adorable 25-pound American Staffordshire mix who is available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a beautiful 1-year-old lady: I have cream and caramel-colored fur, and my ears are always up because I love to hear your voice telling me what a good girl I am. And for as pretty as I am, my personality is even more appealing than my physical appearance! I was found locally with my friend Smokey, ... (Read More)who is also available for adoption through Fetching Tails. We were on our own in Busse Woods and brought to the local animal control boarding facility. No one came to claim us, so Fetching Tails Foundation saved us when our time was up. I am having a great time at my foster home now! I have a doggie foster sister to play with, and she taught me how to play fetch; it is such a fun game! I would love a forever home with a fenced yard so I can play fetch with my forever family as much as possible. When I am all done playing, I am happy to cuddle with my people...cuddling is the best! I get along well with other dogs and all humans; I think it would be fun to have human kiddos as my best friends, but it might be best if they are past the toddler stage because I would hate to accidentally knock over my human sibling when I am playing zoomies (one of my other favorite games...it involves running around as fast as I can to see if I can outrun my shadow!) I am also learning a lot in my foster home, which is great because I am a smart girl and love to learn new things! I am crate trained and rest comfortably in mine for 4-5 hours a day while foster mommy is at work. I am continuing to perfect potty training; with continued consistency and patience I will be 100-percent very soon. I know quite a few basic commands already, including, sit, lay down, drop it, and come. I also have learned to sit nicely until being told 'free' to eat or play. I love to learn, and would love to take some training courses with my forever family to continue my education. Fetching Tails likes to encourage all adopters to attend training with their new pups, and let me tell you, I am really excited by this idea! I still have more to learn; I love going for long walks but could use some practice with my leash skills...I just get so excited to meet new friends that I like to try and go faster to meet new dogs. Why don't we take a class or two together to keep working on this and other commands; I bet we would be the valedictorians in no time! I would also love the bonding time and attention; I am a social butterfly and training classes are great for working on our connection to each other as well! I am such a loving pup, and nothing makes me happier than making my humans feel as happy and loved as I do! If I sound like I could be the sweet, playful, happy lovebug canine companion for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them Astra is the girl for you! I cannot wait to start our happily ever after together! Love, Astra If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!
