Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). You kind of have to meet Moosette in person to understand just how stinkin' adorable she is, but we'll do our best to convey it here. At around 5 years old and 60 lbs this low-rider is the cutest mini-hippo ever. In addition to her good looks, Moosie is also a friendly girl who enjoys going on walks, snuggling, and being perfectly house/crate trained even while her foster parents are at work for a full day. Moosette is is perfectly fine passing other dogs on walks and even hangs out with her neighbors pups from time to time but will likely thrive most as the only pooch in her forever home. Sometimes Moosie is a little tentative with new people--just seems to depend on the person--so though we know she'll love and bond wonderfully with her forever family, she'll thrive most in an adult home. When Moosie first joined the rescue she had terrible chronic ear infections and ultimately her veterinarian and surgeon decided ear canal ablation surgery would be in her best interest. So far she has had surgery for one ear and is feeling so much happier and less painful! She'll be receiving her second surgery in May but can certainly meet potential adopters in the interim. This snorty gal is spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Her adoption has been sponsored by one of her biggest fans, and you can access our application here: http://www.onetail.org/adoption/apply/

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Chicago, IL
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Guys, how is this dog not adopted?! Sometimes we have long-termers and we get it but with this lug consider our minds blown. I mean sure he's a big guy and perhaps most suitable for single family living and sure feline friends aren't really part of his repertoire, but otherwise talk about a dreamboat! Since heading to summer camp, err we mean foster, Dozer has been sending us notes letting us know what exceptional fun he is having and also what an excellently behaved boy he has blossomed into. This dudes favorite things include sharing bananas and other dog appropriate snacks with his humans, cuddling like crazy, snoozing on his comforter, smooching his foster parent's cousin's kids as much as they're amenable to, going on leisurely strolls, and boating adventures. Dozie is great with some dogs and just too much for others so whether or not he can share his forever home with another dog will just depend on their dynamic. For sure though he can have canine pals. This kiddo is about 3.5 years old, around 80 lbs, neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, microchipped, and maintained on heartguard/flea and tick prevention. His adoption fee is $250 (but word on the street is that some smitten sponsor is willing to cover half of it) and if interested you can access our survey here: http://www.onetail.org/adoption/apply/

      Breed: Bullboxer Pit
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Chicago, IL
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). This special little man is named Pocket due to his small huggable stature! At about a year old and just under 40 lbs, he's a real peanut who loves snuggling with his foster moms and exploring the world around him. He's also great with the other resident dog in his foster home though has been hit or miss with other pups outside of foster. Sadly, as a puppy, Pocket was the victim of abuse and that has had a long-term impact on his life in the form of hearing loss and some neurological issues. Socially, Pocket is a fairly typical 1 year old who can get into some mischief but is a friendly and wiggly little dude. His hearing loss has made training more difficult though his foster parents have done a spectacular job teaching him hand signals. We anticipate that it may take Pocket a bit longer to transition to a new environment than it does other dogs but since he is thriving in his foster home, we know he can also be very happy and successful in his forever home. His foster is located in a busy part of Chicago and though he's happy as a clam there now, he will thrive most in a more laid back environment. This little mush mouth is vaccinated, heartworm tested, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250 and we'd love to line up a time for you to meet him!

      Possum

      Breed: Greyhound-Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Chicago, IL
      Posted Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback / Greyhound / Mixed (short coat). Possum is a peaceful soul. She has a sweet personality and is a very quiet and loving girl. She’s a wonderful companion for long walks or snuggling on the couch. Though she's the only dog in her foster home, she socializes well with other dogs. She has such nice household behavior that she does not need to be crated, but also doesn't protest being crated if preferred. If we had to describe her in own word it would be -- mellow. This lovely lady is about 9 years old and weighs 45 lbs so she's a nice medium size well suited for city or suburban living. Because of her gentle spirit, she can join just about any loving family and would be just fine sharing her home with other pets, kids, you name it. Possum is vaccinated and will be spayed and microchipped prior to adoption. She is currently being treated for heartworm but can join her new family at any time as the rescue will continue to pay for her treatment even if she's adopted prior to completing it. She also recently had an echocardiogram which confirmed she has a valve issue with her heart but thankfully is doing great, does not need any medication, and our vet simply recommends that she get echocardiograms twice/year for monitoring. Her adoption fee is $150 and our survey can be accessed here: http://www.onetail.org/adoption/apply/

      Miguel--I'm ...

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Chicago, IL
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). This handsome mug is Miguel and in addition to being easy on the eyes, he's pretty great in the personality department too. At right around a year old and 50 lbs, Miguel is immediately social and engaging with everyone he meets. He is a strong hunk of love and, as such, would benefit from some additional basic training just so his zest for life doesn't get in the way of him being a well behaved boy. Thankfully he's also smart as can be and a super fast study--we're all very impressed by all that he has learned since joining the rescue! Miguel loves playing fetch, romping after squeaky toys, playing with his best dog friend Dexter, and cuddling with/smooching on the volunteers. Though he's a perfect angel in his kennel here (totally crate trained/housebroken) he did display some separation anxiety issues when in a foster home so he'd love to join a home where someone is often home and/or where he can go to daycare during the work day. In addition to loving people, Miguel is also good with other dogs and can certainly join a forever home with other social dogs so long as they're a good match for his play style. Miguel is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. One of his biggest fans has sponsored his adoption fee so now you can save that money for toys and treats!
