Rescue Me ID: 17-02-24-00574Johnny (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!* Hey, how you doin'? My name is Johnny and I am a ridiculously good-looking studmuffin who is looking for a forever family to call my own through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am a 1-year-old, 60-pound all-American 'pittie' mix, and can we talk about how stinking handsome I am? I have bright white fur with black polka dots, and my heart-shaped nose is basically representative of my loving, good-natured personality! I was found as a stray in Chicago and waited patiently for two months at Chicago Animal Care & Control for someone ... (Read More)to give me a second chance at a happy life. Thankfully my foster parents from Fetching Tails Foundation found me, and I have been loving life in their home ever since! I have and older pittie sister to play with, and I get along great with her! Some of my favorite activities include playing in the yard, playing fetch, and playing with my rope toys. Did I mention yet that I am lively and active and like to play? But when playtime is over, nothing makes me happier than snuggling up for a good Netflix-and-cuddle session. I simply love everyone I meet, but would do better with older children given my goofy play style. I would love to have a fenced yard in my forever home, since playtime outside is a great outlet for my fun energy! I am learning a lot in my foster home, and hope that my forever family is patient and continues to teach me how to be the best behaved dog around. I am mostly potty trained (consistency, practice, and a routine will help me get there 100 percent in no time!), and I am also crate trained. My foster parents are able to leave me napping in my crate for up to a few hours while they go to work and I do fine. I am an enthusiastic boy and very smart (I already know sit!), so I think we would benefit from taking some training sessions together. Fetching Tails likes to encourage all adopters to take their new pups to training, and I am so excited by the idea. Just imagine how much we can learn and bond together while we master commands and manners! If a fun-loving, goofy, playful but also cuddly love muffin sounds like the perfect addition to your family, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them Johnny sent you! I can't wait to start our fun-filled life together!

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-24-00400Nora (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier 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! 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! 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 who are patient while I continue to come out of my shell. I am a very smart girl and I respond well to positive reinforcement when working on my manners and commands. I also have good house manners already; I just need help with my confidence! I am potty trained, crate trained, and I do well on walks. In fact, I love going for walks and hanging out in my foster family's yard. I also get along with my canine foster brother; we go on walks together nicely and I even like cuddling on the couch with him now! Fetching Tails Foundation encourages all adopters to take their new pups to training classes, and I think that could be a great bonding experience for us, so I look forward to attending some sessions with you! I am loving and kind, and all I want more than anything in the world is a family who will love me and work with me so I can blossom into the happy-go-lucky, confident girl I know I am meant to be. If you treat me with patience and kindness, I will repay you with endless tail wags and sweet 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!* Hello hello! Are you looking for a fun-loving, loyal, handsome companion who is ready for a lifetime of kisses and adventures? I am Eli, and it is your lucky day because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a 2-year-old 'pitbull' mix, and if I may be so humble, I am quite the handsome fellow. I have stunning golden fur, and a long tail that never stops wagging because I am such a happy guy! I currently weigh in at 51 pounds, but my nice veterinarian says I need to gain a few more to be at my ideal ... (Read More)size. Will you be my forever family and provide me with yummy treats to help me reach my goal weight? Fetching Tails Foundation saved me through the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention and Support Program (CRISP) that they co-founded with other rescues in the area. My previous owner brought me to Chicago Animal Care & Control; he was a landlord and his tenants left me with him when they had to move out but unfortunately he couldn't keep me. Thankfully my friends from CRISP and Fetching Tails were at the shelter that day and I was able to go home with my foster mommy instead of ever going in the busy building! I feel like I hit the jackpot, and I am so happy I get a chance to find a real forever family. My foster home is so much fun: I have two mid-size doggie girlfriends to play with and I get along great with them! I think it would be amazing to have a doggie playmate at my forever home and am keeping my paws crossed that I can join a family with another goofy, friendly dog like me. My favorite activities include going for long walks, playing fetch and running around my foster family's fenced yard, and playing with as many squeaky toys as I can get my paws on. Don't I sound like such a fun fella? I also love meeting new people: I dole out kisses to everyone I meet of all ages; I even did great meeting what you humans call a toddler. I think that means I would make a fine family dog! And I am a super smart pup, too! I know loads of commands including sit, paw, down, and come, and because I am so studious I am currently working on stay. I am also potty trained, though I like to go out often; foster mommy says I can make it about three hours right now and I am trying to extend my streak. When foster mommy goes to work for up to five hours, I am comfortable hanging out in my private Eli room and don't scratch at the door or bark while she is gone. I am curious about the world and love to learn, so maybe it could be fun for us to take some training classes together for special bonding time and to see how many more commands we can learn together? I think we could have a great time seeing what the world has to offer us, and I even love car rides so imagine all the fun adventures we could have together! So, what do you think? I sound like a pretty awesome dude, right? What are you waiting for? Please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and let them know you are ready to have a fun-filled, active, loving life with Eli! I can't wait to enjoy the good life with my forever family! Love and cuddles, Eli If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

    Hello, We are looking to re home our 1 Year 4 month old dog. She is about 70 Pounds and needs LOTS of exercise and attention. My husband and I have forever increasing hours at work and just can't seem to accommodate her needs. She is a gentle giant who loves to snuggle but also needs a home that can commit to daily walks and nighttime play. If you are not a very active home that can commit to daily walks and vigorous exercise like tug of war and mind stimulation she will not be a good fit for you . However if you're looking for your new best friend who will walk with you and play with you for hours she's your girl. It is KILLING us to re ... (Read More)home her so we will be particular on her new home to assure she finds her best fit with an active home that will love her as much as we do. She has no idea how big she is and definitely thinks she is a lap dog. She has been around a cat before when boarding and was not a fan at all however our male dog is her best friend. If you are interested in our baby girl please message me and I will provide more details and pictures. We will be asking a 100 dollar re-homing fee and will provide her basic necessities (kennel, food bowl, leash, harness, collar, toys) and a little food so that you can switch her food over without complication if you choose to do so we want her to have the best transition possible. She is a Pit/ Mix. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier 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!* 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! XOXO, Cyla If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

    *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!

    Choc is a 10 year old pit mix. He was dumped at his old age at the animal shelter. He is a sweet old man who simply likes to have company. He would love a home all to himself. He is passive dominant towards other dogs. He may be okay with females but not other males. He is great on walks and loves to just hang out by his people. This guy deserves a home to live out his days - he is healthy!

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This lovely gal is Susan Poochie, a striking, mixed breed dog suspected to be part bully breed and possibly Border Collie. Poochie weighs around 45 pounds and is approximately two years young. Poochie has excellent house manners; she is already housebroken and is has free roam of the house while her temporary foster is away from home. Susan Poochie is very loving, affectionate, and friendly with everyone she meets. She seeks attention from her people and enjoys playing with them whenever possible. Because Poochie is energetic, and needs a little work with jumping up on people when she meets them, she is probably not the best candidate for ... (Read More)a home with young children. Poochie seems to be best as an only dog. Poochie has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, inoculated against diseases, been tested for parasites, dewormed, and placed on monthly heartworm preventative. She will be spayed and microchipped the last week of May now that she is healthy. ADOPTION or Foster APPLICATIONS are available for online completion and submission through our website - www.acaringplacehs.org. (Less)

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Very happy playful dog but has been through a difficult move recently and is starting to show signs of fear and anxiety and she can't live with us in our apartment. She has separation anxiety the most so it would be hard for her to leave me but after awhile would be happy to be in a home with a good person and/or good couple.

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bullwinkle is a bouncy, sweet, loving, muscular, athletic, and playful, five-year-old, 69-pound, brindle and white, male Am Staff Terrier looking for a loving guardian. Someone cropped Bullwinkle's ears to make him look tough, but he is a happy-go-lucky guy who loves to have his belly rubbed. He is an energetic and fun boy who enjoys the company of other large friendly dogs - especially females. However, he is not good with cats. He takes treats gently from your fingers and knows the commands sit and down. He rides well in the car; he just curls up in the passenger seat. He's great on leashed walks as well. His tail is always wagging ... (Read More)and he is housebroken and crate-trained. He loves people of all ages including children. Bullwinkle is healthy, de-wormed, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog Rescue. This guy has been sitting in a kennel for over three years! It's about time someone took a chance on him. To meet and foster or adopt him, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net or 708-224-1900. He is being kenneled in Union, Illinois. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Annie loves to run and play. She has lived on the farm outside with us. We have been trying to find a good home for Annie. Annie is a homeless dog. She loves to chase cats, so not a good idea to have Annie around cats. She gets along with our other dog Tank, but living on a farm outdoors 100% of the time is hard on Annie. We have a wonderful barn with straw that she sleeps in to stay warm. She gets along with adults, but has not been around children. She is very protective, but has never given any delivery people any problems. All her shots are up to date. We tried finding a home before winter but were unable too. We are hoping someone ... (Read More)will see her and want to adopted her. Please call after 4:00 p.m. We have a close neighbor who feels very uncomfortable with Annie and are expecting a child. Since we are unsure of her nature around children we prefer to find a home for her with adults. We believe she is a purebred. (Less)
