    Oh bother! Pooh Bear seems to have gotten himself stuck at the shelter! This absolutely adorable 2 year old American Staffordshire terrier mix is one chubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff! He's a blonde and white boy who loves love, snacks, and love! He came to ACL as a stray, and we're all madly in love with our resident bear with very little brain. He's a goofball inside and out, and he'll be an amazing family dog for an active home with hearty kids of any age. Pooh Bear is good with other dogs when the chemistry is right, though we can't say how he'd feel about cats. He's super friendly, but he's young and exuberant, so a home that ...

    Foster or adopter needed urgently to save his life. Volunteers report 'Connor is a handsome boy who is very energetic and was so excited to come out of his kennel! He loves to jump up and try to give you kisses but listens very nicely when you ask him not to. Once he got his ya-yas out, he was much calmer and just wanted some loving.

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-29-00593Little Chief (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Howdy! My name is Little Chief, and I am a young dog with a bright, happy personality who is looking for a forever family through Fetching Tails Foundation! If you are looking for a cuddly companion who will shower you with kisses for many years to come, I am the perfect friend for you! I am an 11-month-old 'pittie' mix, and I currently weigh in at around 40 pounds. I will be on the smaller side when I am full grown, so I will always be the perfect size to keep your lap nice and warm during our snuggle sessions! I have a stunning ... (Read More)reddish-brown coat and a smile that goes on for days and days; I even smile when I sleep! My human friends saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where I was brought with a broken arm. My foster mommy graciously welcomed me into her home and helped me recover from my injury. I am all healed up, and as much as I love my foster home, I am ready for my happily ever after now! I have so much fun with my foster family, and hope for a forever family that is as fun-loving as they are! I would love to have a forever home with a fenced yard and human who will buy me lots of fun toys and treats because toys and marrow bones are my favorite possessions in the whole wide world! I make foster mommy laugh because I like to take my tasty marrow bone with me when I go outside to go potty and will hold it in my mouth while I 'do my business.' I also have two canine foster sisters who are big Labs and I love to play with them: I am so happy to see them that I do this adorable pouncy dance and hop to where they are so I can jump on them and we can play! When playtime is over, nothing - and I mean NOTHING - makes me happier than cuddling with my humans as much as possible. You name the place, I will be there to join you: Wanna cuddle in bed? I'm there! How 'bout some couch time so we can watch Netflix and chill? I am so game! I just love to curl up with my people everywhere and anywhere so I can give you a sweet kiss and snuggle in as close as possible. So if you are looking for a happy, fun dog who likes to lounge as much as he likes to play, I am the total package! For a young guy, I have great manners, too. I don't mean to brag, but I am already potty trained and crate trained, too. My foster mommy works during the day, and I am fine resting on my own while she is off making money to buy me more treats. She comes home to see me at lunch and take me out for a potty break because, let's be honest, who wouldn't want any excuse to come home and hang out with handsome me for a bit? I am a very smart boy and would love to see how much more I could learn. Maybe we could take a training class or two together? I hear my doggie friends say how much fun training is and what a great bonding experience it is for a new dog and their human. Plus I want to learn as many tricks and commands as I can so I can be the best Little Chief possible! What are you waiting for? If I sound like I could be the perfect companion for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon and tell them you are ready for fun with Little Chief! I can't wait to see what adventures life has planned for us together! Kisses and cuddles, Little Chief If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

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 

    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 who definitely has some small breed terrier in her. She's only 32 pounds, and her temperament are very terrier-like. 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 high intensity lady - she has a lot of love to give, a ... (Read More)lot of places to be, a lot of stuff to do. She's just a lot! Because Kaia is an emotional, highly intuitive dog, she can also be anxious about new situations and new people. Her reaction to anxiety is to try to take control, and it's really important for her mental health that she has a highly experienced terrier owner who can set the boundaries and give her some consistent structure. When Kaia knows the rules, she is much happier and less nervous. Emotional pups like Kaia are so eager to love you - if you're her leader, she's happy to be your good little soldier! Because of her intensity, Kaia is a good fit for active adult families only. She does ok with dogs on a case by case basis. No cats please! (Less)

    Boom goes the dynamite - because Boomer is just dynamite! This active, energetic, affectionate goofball is a two year old pit bull/lab mix who is just ready to BOOM SHAKE THE ROOM! Boomer arrived at ACL when a citizen found him dragging a heavy chain through his yard. Boomer had clearly been treated poorly by his previous owners, but you'd never know it from his bright, spunky personality! Boomer his a little unmannered - he loves to jump up on you and give love nibbles! - but with a little basic training, he's sure to shape up quick. He's totally housebroken, and he's surprisingly submissive with other dogs. Boomer would be a great second ... (Read More)dog to a laidback canine. Boomer is still pretty nervous about new things, so he'll need an adopter willing to give him some time to truly relax and trust his new home. To make sure he starts off on the right foot, Boomer will need to enroll in a transitional training class upon adoption. Boomer is going to be a great companion - he just needs a little bit of patience while he learns his manners and trusts his new people. Come meet him today! (Less)

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)

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!

    BULLY BREED EXPERIENCE REQUIRED - MUST MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO VIEW I am approximately 3yrs old. I have had a very rough life! Due to this, I have a hard time trusting and meeting new people. However, once you are in my circle, you are in for life! I love my people! It's sad that I have a better life at a shelter than I did outside. The volunteers have done amazing work with me. I have learned basic commands. I walk well on leash most times, but do get silly sometimes. I can go on walks with other dogs and people, but I need to keep moving. I do not like bikes passing me and will bark. In fact, whenever I am upset, I will bark. I love to ... (Read More)zoom around the yard with my stuffie. I will destroy it, but don't eat the pieces.
