Speckles

Speckles spent 3 months at the shelter after being picked up as a stray. During his stay he was a rockstar in the play group and a favorite of the volunteers. One of our fantastic fosters asked to pull him and now he is ready for his forever home. Speckles is a one year old full of promise and mischief. He will need a dedicated family to help him learn his manners and how to walk nicely on a leash. He has the typical puppy energy and needs guidance with his chewing and tendency to nibble! He has checked off a few boxes as far as manners. He is crate trained and house trained. He is dog friendly but will do best in a home with kids over the age of 5. He doesn't mind cats andsometimes he kinda thinks he's a cat because he likes to rub up against dogs. We don't judge... we love a good quirk! Speckles loves toys and treats and playtime! This boy isn't picky .. he likes everything! If you think you have what it takes to lead this boy into greatness, fill out an application!

After that, look out, you've got a shadow ready to cuddle and freely give out kisses. Please help us welcome the newest member of the CTP family...Bubba! All good things from here!

Tugs - Adoption Pending

FREEDOM! For 8 months this little beauty sat in a 3x3 cage at a south side animal control, she stole our heart months ago but sadly we had no foster home to put her in. And just when we were giving up hope a foster graciously stepped forward...So today, on Chicago Rescue Day we were able to break her out! A huge thank you to all the CTP volunteers who came out, PET WANTS Chicago North for the generous food donation, Max and Neo Dog Gear for the fantastic leash, and Lost Dogs Illinois for the great collar. She not only holds the title for the longest resident at that facility, but she was the first one out of there today! Please help us welcome the newest member to the CTP family...Tugs! All good things from here.
More info to come as she settles in at her foster home.

Luca 

Someone once said that when the most terrible things happen look for the helpers…because they're always there. That could not be more true for our newest love bug, Luca. Luca was found wandering around in the city, bleeding. Luckily, a guardian angel happened upon him and took him to the vet for treatment. Luca has been through the worst of it: he's had multiple BB's removed from his head, back and other parts of his body. The veterinarian thinks he was likely used as target practice, based upon his wounds. His eyes were terribly red from dryness & infection and he was far too skinny from being on his own. Our buddy will also need his ACL repaired and may need surgery for Entropion eyes; we're still hoping the swelling will go down and he will not need it. BUT Luca's been found. It's truly taken a village for our newest guy to get the life he deserves…and he has generously given kisses to every one who's helped him in the process. His recovery is already well underway. His eyes are beginning to clear up, his wounds are beginning to heal and he will never have to worry about feeling anything but happy and loved again. His foster mama is making sure of that! Because of the extent of his medical bills we have started a YouCaring for him. Every dollar counts, every share is appreciated.

Mama

Mama is ready for her new life. She was surrendered to the shelter along with her two young puppies. She deserves to be treated like the queen she truly was meant to be! Mama has been professionally trained to be your shadow. She loves attention, she is a super cuddler and she is all about the reassurance. She's slowly building confidence and would benefit from someone home a lot, and who will be able to continue working on confidence building and the necessary manners she needs to be the perfect family member. She is great on a leash and she enjoys running. She also loves playing with balls and fetching. She's a Kong lover and enjoys certain types of chew bones. This queen has her standards!
She is very agreeable in the car and in the bathtub. She has a nice recall and she's so loving. Mama deserves everything an amazing life has to offer. Are you the one?

Gucci

Gucci is a tomboy with a supermodel name! ​This young girl is just what an active family is looking for!
Gucci will do best with a family that will keep her stimulated, provide exercise and will enjoy giving her guidance to be the best girl there is! She knows basic commands and she's crate trained but she needs someone with the patience to show her how great walks are and teach her the leash manners.
Gucci is dog friendly and enjoys play dates but her foster mom says she's a little selective and would prefer to be with dogs that are more submissive. Gucci is great with kids 10 or older. She doesn't like cats but that's ok.. a girl can't love everyone!
Gucci is the destroyer of toys but she doesn't mess with stuff that isn't hers so an Amazon account and frequent trips to the pet store are probably things you should work into your budget. Just sayin' .. a girl needs her accessories. She is also a big fan of peanut butter in a Kong.. we see a lot of that around here.
Gucci is a medium to high energy dog that will need her exercise but once her workout is over she loves attention and cuddling. She is also a big fan of YouTube. This girl is into howling videos... yep, she likes to watch other dogs howling. Look ... never judge what makes a girl happy.

Rex Sr.

We made a plea to find a foster for a 10 year old pittie named Rex, who was surrendered by his family because they could no longer afford his food and medical care. We were so grateful and humbled by the outpouring of people wanting to help support this man in any way they could. Rex had a bunch of volunteers/friends within the rescue community meet us at the shelter yesterday when we busted him out. Yep...that's right...please help us welcome Rex Sr as the newest member of the CTP family! All good things from here!  Please consider donating to his care - no amount is too small, every penny counts.

Beau 

Beau had an unfortunate start to his young life. Beau came from down south with a wire embedded into his neck and someone had cut off his ears with scissors and cut off part of his tail. Beau is ready to put that behind him and find his forever home.
Beau is about one year old and because he has lots of puppy behavior still ahead, he needs a dedicated and patient owner that will be consistant with training, and socialization as well as physical and mental stimulation.
He is around 45 pounds, which is considered a 'pocket pit'. He has all the great pittie attributes in a fun size! Beau is high energy and is excited to meet people, dogs and kids. He is great on a leash and knows his commands!

Rick Allen

 Rick Allen is a rock star! He will pour some sugar on you and drum his way into your heart, no Foolin' (see what I did there?)
Rick Allen is all puppy, all the time. He was surrendered to animal control with a broken leg that had to be amputated. His tri-pod status isn't slowing him down at all. He loves to go on walks, and needs someone dedicated to working with him to get the hang of it. He loves his fans and despite his rough beginning, he loves people. He's dog friendly and cat friendly. Rick Allen is a typical puppy with his over-excitement, chewing, mouthing and playfulness. (this is why puppies are so cute - it's balance). He has a history of food guarding in certain situations so we don't recommend a family with small children. He is a big fan of Nylabones and puzzle balls. He likes to cuddle and he's a wiggle butt that will snort and snore his way into your heart! He's crate trained and working on house training and basic manners so he'll need a family that is patient enough to help him grow into the best dog he can be!

Gus

 We're sure you remember this juicy meatball named Barney (now known as Gus), and wonder why you haven't seen his blockhead in your newsfeed more since his freedom. It's not because his is the face liable to break the internet, its because unfortunately he was so ill that he needed to be in isolation at our vets office so he could receive much needed round the clock care. We were hoping he'd be healthy enough to leave after one week but that wasn't the case. He was there for 2 weeks until Monday, our vet released him and Gus was able to go to his foster home. The vet bills for his isolation stay are quite steep, and he is still in need of routine vetting, now that he's healthy enough. Please consider making a donation towards his vet bill - no amount is too small, every penny counts. Donations can be made via the Donate button on this our home page or directly on PayPal using donations.chitownpitties@gmail.com Thank you in advance!
More info to follow as he settles in at his foster home.

Roxy

 We made a plea for a foster to step forward so we could save an amazing girl who's time was up at an area animal control on 9/27, she was way too special to give up on. It took a village of our volunteers to make miracles happen...a foster stepped up...and just in the nick of time. Please help us welcome the newest member of the CTP family, Roxy! All good things from here.

Frankie

 Frankie was surrendered by her owners to an area animal control because their life changes no longer allowed them to give her the care they knew she deserved. This girl quickly became a staff and volunteer favorite, she was a rockstar with every dog and person she met. The minute we met her it was clear she needed to be part of our pack. Nothing makes her happier then a squeaky toy, kisses, or car rides. And nothing makes us happier then announcing her freedom. Please help us welcome the newest member of the CTP family...Frankie! All good things from here.

Thea

 We were notified that an ittie bittie baby pittie was surrendered to a south side animal control. The thought of this little nugget spending another minute there broke our hearts.

Please help us welcome the newest member of the CTP family...baby Thea! All good things from here.
