Gene - Medical Hold

IMG-2542
* Approximate Age 10 Years-Old * Dog-Friendly * Not Cat-Friendly * Up To Date On Vaccines * Neutered * Older Child- Friendly*  House-trained * 
BACKSTORY:
Upon being picked up as a stray, this distinguished gentleman had such a difficult time walking that they held him in medical so they could keep an eye on him and let him settle in. Then for over 7 weeks this poor senior with hind end issues that was covered in masses sat in a cage at CACC waiting for someone to save him.
Gene continued to get overlooked by rescues because no one wanted to take on another medical case, the expenses, and the time they incur. Volunteers joked that they could never get a picture of him with his eyes open, and that he loved other dogs way more than he liked them. He took time to warm up and connect to people, but once he did he was your shadow.
We thought he sounded perfect and so did one of our fosters who has a soft spot for overlooked seniors. So we went to CACC and scooped him up!

* Approximate Age 4 Years-Old * Dog-Friendly * Not Cat-Friendly * Up To Date On Vaccines * Spayed * Older Child- Friendly*  House-trained * 
BACKSTORY:
Some dogs just do better with a canine companion, and that was clearly the case here. A tan temptress was surrendered to DuPage County Animal Services after her canine housemate passed away and she became destructive in the home while alone for long hours.
While at the shelter this girl lit up like a Christmas tree around other dogs and it was clear she indeed needed one in her life that could help boost her confidence.
One of our foster families went to meet her and learn more about her without their dog, and if all went well they’d bring him in a couple days to meet. Well, right after that this beige beauty got adopted! We were thrilled that she got out and wished the best for her. Unfortunately, a few days later the adopter returned her.
*May we add this is why the two-week shutdown and decompression is critical for all dogs in a new home and why CTP employs the two-week shutdown.
When we let our foster family know she was returned they immediately jumped on the chance to load up their dog and go meet her! And it was a great match which was meant to be all along!

However, we got a frantic call from someone whose landlord changed their mind about them having a dog and he gave them 2 weeks for the dog to vacate. The kicker was the dog is deaf. I told them “Deaf puppy, you say?” We might be able to help!''

* Approximate Age 4 Years Old *  Dog-Friendly * Up To Date On Vaccines  * Spayed * Child- Friendly*  House-trained * 
BACKSTORY:
Another face that some of you may recognize from the past. About 4 years ago a young pittie named Fiona was in one of our foster homes with a few other dogs where she learned how to dog, and hone her manners. When she was adopted we thought she found her happily ever after. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. Her adopter reached out letting us know they had to return her because they were moving and weren’t able to find a place that allowed big dogs. And since we stand behind our dogs for life, our interaction team evaluated her so we could find an appropriate fitting foster home. Fiona was brutally attacked in her own home by a neighbor dog that busted their way in and this experience has her unsure of dogs at this time so we needed a foster with no other dogs. Foster homes with no other dogs are like needles in haystacks but we completely lucked out when one of our fosters who was on hiatus stepped up for her!

BACKSTORY:
A family had contacted us about surrendering their dog to us because one of the other dogs in the home was relentlessly starting fights with him. Unfortunately, we did not have a foster at the time that could help out, so the family brought him to DuPage Animal Services. We really wanted this to come full circle and add him to the rescue since our hearts really broke for the family who had to give him up. So…we looked for a foster and struck out at every turn. He caught the attention of lots of people with his good looks and charming personality but he was really struggling in a shelter environment. To help relieve some of that stress a huge-hearted volunteer/foster through DuPage took him home to foster through them until rescue placement could be found. Guess what!? That very same foster agreed to continue to foster this handsome lug through us! That’s right! Because of this, we were able to make him a Chi-Town Pitties dog!

Chuck

97103
* Approximate Age 7 Years Old * Selective Dog-Friendly * Up To Date On Vaccines  * Neutered * Child-Friendly*  House-trained * 
Let me tell you about a guy named Chuck. His family didn’t have time for his medical needs so Chuck and his brother were relinquished to The Anti-Cruelty Society. Chuck’s brother Jude was rescued by Young at Heart Senior Pet Adoptions and a week later Chi-Town Pitties, Inc. rescued Chuck. Rescue is a group effort, at the end of the day, it’s not about who goes where but it’s about making sure we work together to save as many as we can. I’ve said before some foster, some volunteer their time, some transport, some share our posts, and some donate. It’s a collective effort, one doesn’t work without the others.
I want to introduce you to my new foster Chuck. He’s blue magic. 7 years young, he currently has a small head and big body 🙄. He had a few growths removed at the shelter. One was a mast cell, low grade and surgery was curative. 🎉🎉 He does have several more growths that will need to be addressed. He has an upper respiratory infection so he is separated from our other dogs. I will have to bring him in next week to have a vet visit to address his ears and skin (infection city). He has been isolated to our front room and he’s been a complete gentleman. He seems to be potty trained🚽, he goes to the door and whines. I can rest now knowing that both Jude and his brother Chuck are safe. The shelter is no place for any dog nevertheless seniors.
~ Liz, Chuck's foster mom and our medical coordinator.

Peaches

 Approximate Age 6 Year Old *  Dog-Friendly * Up To Date On Vaccines  * Spayed * Child-Friendly*  House-trained * 
BACKSTORY:
One of our team members works at DuPage County Animal Services and was the person who took a call from a very concerned Good Samaritan that found a dog laying on the side of the road - the dog wasn’t moving and needed help. Our team member guided him on how to lift the dog into the car and instructed him to bring her immediately to the shelter.
The Good Samaritan was concerned since he had no leash to walk her in - she told him to call when he arrived and their team would come out and get her. About 15 minutes later in walked a very distressed dog in horrible condition with an extremely tight choke chain collar and the Good Samaritan’s work tie as a makeshift leash. The staff at DuPage immediately jumped into action to get the chain off and get this dog medical attention. Every time she was touched or tried to walk she screamed in pain, but at the same time she leaned in for comfort. She was immediately named Peaches by our volunteer.
Peaches settled in at animal control while on stray hold. Her injuries were evaluated and treatment started, her pain lessened, and our volunteer made it her mission to get her into CTP. Peaches would hang out in the office, and woo all staff members & AC volunteers with her antics and huge personality. And then the day finally came…an experienced foster came to meet her! It was love at first sight.

Elmer - Adoption Pending

IMG-6734
* Approximate Age 3 Years Old *  Dog-Friendly * Up To Date On Vaccines  * Neutered * Child-Friendly*  House-trained * 
BACKSTORY:
Sometimes we have a story to tell about how a dog came to be a foster here at CTP. Maybe they were rescued by a hero police officer that found them during a neglect and abuse investigation. Maybe they were left to starve in an abandoned home. Maybe they were surrendered because their owner passed away. Maybe they were left at a vet because the owner couldn't afford their medical care. Maybe they were dumped in a box at the door of a county shelter. Elmer has a story. We just don't know what it is.
You see, Elmer was picked up as a stray, like so many dogs are. Dogs end up strays for a variety of reasons. They could have run away from their home, gotten lost after being in an accident with their people, been let go when owners could no longer care for them, left behind to fend for themselves when their owners moved. We just don't know his history and that's ok because he's looking forward to his future and finding his forever family so they can help write his story. So, we can't tell you much about how Elmer ended up in rescue in need of medical attention, but we can tell you that one of our amazing fosters stepped up to foster him and his big 'ol noggin and we are looking forward to learning more about this sweet boy.

Dahlia - Adoption Pending

38838
* Approximate Age 6 Months Old *  Dog-Friendly * Up To Date On Vaccines  * Spayed* Child-Friendly*  House-trained * 
BACKSTORY:
Dahlia's story is tied up with a few other stories!
We were notified of 2 pitties that came in as strays running around town together - a hunky adult male and a young female. One of our volunteers went to meet them and immediately fell head over heels for both so we desperately looked for fosters. In that time frame, another rescue took the male and we were able to take the female (Iris). As Iris settled in with her foster parent animal control let us know that there were 3 other dogs being surrendered who were part of the same household as the “strays running around town”.
Of course we jumped at the chance to find fosters for them since we love the idea of keeping the dog family together even though they’d be in separate foster homes…they’d all be CTP family. Luck as it goes was on our side! We had 3 fosters step up to take them in - 2 were pittie puppy siblings of Iris (Harris and Dahlia) and one was a 8 year old Maltese/Poodle/Bichon. (Kya)
