  • American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Westmont, IL

    NALA

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: Westmont, IL
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Introducing NALA, a beautiful (inside and out) 2 year old, 60 pound Red Nose Pit Bull. She is very social, friendly, sweet, and well behaved. Nala is living in a foster home with two adults and a large dog with whom she easily gets along. Nala follows her foster parents around and always wants to be close to them. Nala’s foster parents work from home so Nala has access to outside time frequently and has proven to be fully housebroken. Nala would like to sleep in bed with her foster parents but will sleep on her dog bed or in her crate with the door open when encouraged to do so. She easily shares toys, food and water with the other dog in the home, and the two dogs enjoy rough housing and wrestling. Nala is very good about her paws getting cleaned too - she just seeks out pets when she’s done. Nala seems to know a few commands and will sit for a treat. In addition, she walks nicely on the leash and doesn't pay attention to other dogs, squirrels etc., nor barks at them. She greets house guests, neighbors, and the neighbors dog at the fence with a wagging tail and ready for affection or play. Nala’s foster parents are crating her when they leave the home since she is newer to foster care. Based on what we have witnessed in foster care, we think Nala might be a great therapy dog. This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, spayed, inoculated against diseases, dewormed, tested for heartworm disease (negative) and placed on monthly preventative, plus microchipped. ADOPTION APPLICATION are available for online completion and submission through our website’s home page - www.acaringplacehs.org A Caring Place - All Breed Dog Rescue adopts throughout the Greater Chicagoland Area. All dogs and puppies live in foster homes, providing you as the adopter, with information on the animal's behaviors, needs, and requirements. We are always in search of fosters care providers. If you are one of those special people willing to open your heart and home to an animal in need and would like to receive information on how you can foster an animal, please contact us.

    rescue
    Breed: Norwich Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: Westmont, IL
    Posted Breed: Norwich Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Introducing SKETCH, a young, playful pup who is most likely a Norwich Terrier mix. Sketch has a wiry coat and currently weighs around 8-10 pounds. Sketch is a playful dog with people as well as the other dogs in his foster home; he will run outside in the fenced yard to play with another dog that is similar size but also plays with a medium sized dog too. Sketch is very sweet and loving. Right now Sketch prefers to be with his new little girl-friend Krissy, another small dog in foster care. Sketch is not a fan of the crate and will cry initially when crated, but he does settle down and become quiet. He is currently crated at night and will sleep through the night just fine, but once he knows you're getting up he wants out and starts whimpering. Sketch would do best in a home with another dogs because he loves the companionship and loves to play. He is approved for households with children over 10 years of age due to his small size; he has shown absolutely no aggression whatsoever while in foster care. This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, provided inoculation, testing for Heartworm Disease (negative), dewormed, neutered, and microchipped.

    JUNIOR

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Cairwich Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Baby
    Location: Westmont, IL
    Posted Breed: Norwich Terrier / Cairn Terrier / Mixed (short coat). This cutie is Junior! He is most likely a mix of Norwich or Cairn Terrier and possibly Chihuahua. He was born 12/30/2016 in his foster home; mom is a 7 pound Terrier mix who has just gotten her own adoptive home. Junior currently weighs around 6 pound and sports a somewhat wiry coat who requires minimal grooming. Junior is a very active puppy who really enjoys playing with the other dogs in the home - of all sizes. Despite his small stature, he is feisty and strong with the other dogs. He gets along just fine with the kitties in his foster home too. Junior especially loves to snuggle and cuddle with his foster mom and dad. Junior is truly an adorable, loving, little pup who has lots of personality. He is at the mouthy stage right now, so providing Junior with a good selection of chew toys, antlers, and Kong type items is necessary. All puppies require a lot of time, attention, and training to make them a good family member. Junior will need adopters who are home throughout the day to care for him, continuing his housebreaking, and teaching him good manners. Ideally, Junior should be enrolled in puppy classes for continued socialization and basic obedience training. Junior is partially housebroken and currently use pee pads too. This puppy has received a series of age appropriate inoculations, been dewormed, examined by a licensed veterinarian, and will be neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. ADOPTION APPLICATIONS ARE AVAILABLE for online completion and submission through A Caring Place's home page - www.acaringplacehs.org Junior's adoption fee is $350. Please note, due to a glitch in the system, the application only works with input from a computer, not a phone. A Caring Place - All Breed Dog Rescue adopts throughout the Greater Chicagoland Area.

    CHASE

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Baby
    Location: Westmont, IL
    Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Chase is a 5-6 month old Chihuahua puppy that has lots of energy for play, chase, and fetch. Chase has the typical disposition of a Chihuahua; he loves his foster mom and is very affectionate with her, giving kisses and affection. Chase loves to lay next to his foster mom when she’s watching TV or reading a book. He does become jealous when other dogs get attention. Chase is a good little watch dog too, barking when appropriate - not excessively. Chase enjoys playing with other similar sized dogs in his foster home. He really enjoys running around with a toy, and playing fetch - most of the time returning the toy for another toss. Chase gets along with the cats in his foster home but plays a bit too rough, so he would probably do best with young cats or no cats in his adoptive home. Currently Chase has possession aggression with food and chew bones, so he must be fed separately and can only have bones when he’s in his crate alone. With proper training, this behavior can be corrected, and should be since he is a young puppy. Chase is approved for households with children 10 and older. Chase requires an adopter who has the time, energy, and willingness to continue his housebreaking and obedience training. This little guy has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, neutered, inoculated with age appropriate vaccines, dewormed, and microchipped.

    BUBBA

    rescue
    Breed: American Bulldog-Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Baby
    Location: Westmont, IL
    Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Introducing BUBBA, a snuggly and loving puppy who was born around December 9, 2016. Bubba is likely a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and American Bulldog mix who currently weighs approximately 28-30 pounds. Bubba has lived in a foster home with dogs of all sizes, as well as cats and seems to enjoy their company but he is more human oriented and prefers people to dogs. Bubba has a more reserved and lazy pup who has a strong personality. Bubba would do best with a fenced yard (privacy fence) and people home during the day who can continue his basic manners and obedience training, as well as housebreaking. Since he's a younger puppy, he can only hold his bodily functions for 4-5 hours - so frequent outside bathroom breaks is a necessity. Bubba requires a knowledgeable and experienced dog owner who can provide Bubba with leadership and guidance. We also recommend, as with any puppy, that the adopter enroll Bubba in obedience training immediately to ensure a successful transition. Bubba has shown some food aggression with the other dogs so we recommend he be an only dog. He was rescued at only two weeks of age, along with his sister Camille, from a young man selling the puppies to make money. Despite our effort to rescue the puppies' mom so they could nurse and socialize until they were at least 8 weeks old, we were unable to convince the owner to comply. Bubba's mom was a Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix; we did not meet the father. Bubba has received a series of age appropriate inoculations and dewormings, and will be neutered and microchipped prior to adoption.

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Labrador Retriever Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Baby
    Location: Westmont, IL
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Introducing CAMILLE, an playful, loving, and submissive puppy who was born around December 9, 2016. Camille is a bully mix, sporting a beautiful brindle and white coat and currently weighing about 20 pounds. She and her brother, Bubba, were rescued at only two weeks of age from a young man selling the puppies to make money. Despite our effort to rescue the puppies' momma so they could stay with her until they were at least 8 weeks old, we were not able to get the owner to comply. Camille's momma was a pocket pittie mix; we did not meet the father. Camille is great with dogs of all sizes, and loves people. She is very curious, and energetic; she is able to climb a chain link fence so she cannot be left unattended in a yard with a chain-link fence. Camille would do best with a fenced yard (privacy fence) and people home during the day who can continue her basic manners and obedience training, as well as housebreaking. Since she's a younger puppy, she can only hold her bodily functions for 4-5 hours - so frequent outside bathroom breaks is a necessity. Camille loves to cuddle with her foster mom on the couch, and sleeps in bed with her too. She will use a puppy pee pad in the middle of the night if she has to go potty. Camille loves playing with plush toys and will chew on elk antlers. Camille has received a series of age appropriate inoculations and dewormings, and will be spayed and microchipped prior to adoption.

    KONA

    rescue
    Breed: Beagle
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: Westmont, IL
    Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Hi there. My name is Kona and I'm a small, purebred, Beagle who is around 5 years old and weighing only 22 pounds. I was rescued after good samaritans saw me darting in and out of traffic in a busy truck stop; I'm now living in a beautiful foster home with some wonderful people. Here's a little bit about me: I love kids of all kinds and all ages. The more the merrier! I am very smart if I do say so myself. I am very loyal and I stay close to my foster mom until the family comes home. I do not chew on anything other than a chew bone or chew toy. I am almost fully housebroken. I only bark when there is a good reason. I have a big instinct to hunt, so if I am out on a walk and I pick up a scent, I am going to put my nose down to the ground, start wagging my tail and bark my "hunting bark." Please let me do this as it is just part of my genetics. I would be ok to have a doggie friend. I do not like cats. When I lift my leg to pee, I sometimes pee on my front leg.....oops, I don't think I can fix that! And finally, I am just a great dog and will be a great friend and family member to a loving home. With a lot of patience in the beginning and a lot of LOVE, I am sure you will want to keep me forever! Kona has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, been provided inoculations, tested for heartworm and tick related diseases (negative), neutered, dewormed, and microchipped. In addition, we ran blood tests on Kona since he came to A Caring Place in very bad condition; no health issues noted.

    MANCHAS

    rescue
    Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: Westmont, IL
    Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound (short coat). Manchas, meaning patches in Spanish, is a 1 year old, 45 pound, Treeing Walker Coonhound mix seeking his forever home. He is a high energy, playful, dog who is very friendly with everyone he meets, including all other dogs. His foster mom thinks Manchas would do best with a little bit older dogs that are still playful but where he can learn to play nicely from them. He loves small dogs as well but seems to be too overwhelming with wanting to play with them. Manchas is crated while his foster mom is away at work, as well as at night; he is able to hold it and sleeps throughout the day and night. Manchas needs an active adopter who is home more and willing and able to exercise Manchas daily - with rigorous walks or a run. He loves toys and will run back and forth swinging them around. Manchas was confiscated from a neglectful home where he was spent a majority of his life crated and ignored; he never learned to play with toys nor was taught basic manners. He would definitely benefit from training classes and probably do very well in agility classes as well. This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, tested for Heartworm Disease, dewormed, inoculated against diseases, neutered, and microchipped.
