Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Roxy was surrendered at Chicago Animal Care and Control because of moving/landlord issues. It was clear that Roxy wasn't well cared for. She had missing hair patches due to fleas and overgrown nails making it uncomfortable for her to walk. Roxy was terrified in her cage and caught an illness in the shelter. In a matter of days, her status URGENT--she wasn't "showing well" in her cage due to her fear and her sickness. With a cough and very bad congestion, the Animal Welfare League pulled her out and took her into their shelter, where she remained in isolation for over two weeks. Dogs are Deserving found a foster and got her out of the shelter and into a home. Roxy really blossomed once she got into a home. She seemed to know she was finally safe. She sat, gave paw with both paws, went down on command, rolled onto her back, and went right into her cage to lay down. She is a big lap dog. She loves being close to her people, and will nap right on top of you. When she has been crated, Roxy/Baby Bear has a little happy dance she does in the crate before opening it. We believe that her previous owners may have used items to hit her, so she does flinch at anything that is swung near her and at loud noises. Roxy/Baby Bear needs to be in a home with no cats or small animals. And at this point, no other dogs - pending her training. Roxy has been showing some reactivity on leash and is in need of training. DADR is working on getting her into class. And we expect any adopter to continue to practice dog etiquette with her long term. She’s a loving, sassy little thing and she really enjoys belly rubs. Roxy loves to play co-pilot on car rides in her foster daddy’s truck. She loves her dog food and treats. She also loves balls--so much so that she loves them to death...destroying them quickly. She just started getting a hang of the tug toy and is really enjoying that too. Roxy/Baby Bear likes to lounge around the house. She is very interested in looking out the window at the small animals that pass by - sometimes a little too interested that the blinds need to be shut. She also loves to go on walks and on a nice jog. She loves hearing any words that have to do with food and walk! And Roxy/Baby Bear has a lot of patience... waiting at the top of the stairs for her walks until her foster daddy is ready for her to come down for her walk.

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.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). I’m looking to find my forever home, and have provided some of my likes and dislikes to see if I’m the missing piece to complete your family. Likes: Walks , playing with my four legged friends (I could use a little work with greeting politely, but LOVE other dogs), getting loved on from any and all people, sunbathing, treats, giving hugs, cuddling on the couch, and following my favorite humans and dog friends around the house. Dislikes: Peanut Butter (hard to believe but I just don’t like it no matter how many times my humans try to feed me it), being left alone for too long (I do best crated when you leave as I like to explore things I shouldn’t if I’m not). Everyone says I’m super smart and I know the signs for “sit”, “stay”, “come”, “down”, and “paw”. I’m super affectionate and like to show my love by giving hugs and I’m never stingy with my kisses. I should mention that I have a quirk, I’m hard of hearing. But once you meet me you don’t even realize that I’m not able to hear, I adapt quickly and never let it stop me from having fun and enjoying life. Also, because of it I’m the most sound sleeper ever , and am not bothered by loud noises like fireworks or sirens.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Mickey is a patch-work pit bull mix, with a Mickey Mouse emblem on his back. He is a good boy who has been patiently waiting for a home to call his own. Mickey is selective with dogs he likes. Generally he loves people, but does not like people or dogs to get in his face, it just makes him nervous. So, he would be best in a home without little children who do not understand. He loves to play fetch and run through the yard! And he does great on walks...he absolutely LOVES walks! And since he is totally housebroken, he will want to take you for walks often. Mickey wants ALL of your attention and will be a great friend to the perfect person. Thank you! Hope to meet you soon!!

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Three pit bull mix puppies were rescued after being posted on Craigslist at only 3 weeks old. Their mom was chained to a tree without food, water or shelter. The puppies were in a dirt floor chicken coop, without their mother. When the rescuers arrived most of the puppies had died. Eventually, the mom and these three survivors were rescued. Carmine can be a laid back and want to snuggle; however, he also loves to run after the Frisbee and play in the baby pool! Carmine loves to give kisses. He is shy when meeting new people but he is very curious about them. If a new person sits on a step or the floor he will slowly make his way and start giving kisses. Once he warms up he is a total love-bug goofball. Carmine is not found of dogs who try and dominate him but he does well with friendly pups. He will even snuggle with them. Carmine has never been around young children and he doesn't quite know what to think of them. He is an amazing boy! Please give him a chance!
