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!

Luca 

Luca is a 4.5 year old star quarterback! He's sweet and has no idea how handsome he is. Luca had a rough start. He was found wandering the streets, bleeding from multiple BB shot injuries. The vet thinks he was used for target practice. Luca is ready to move past that and find his forever home! He is a low to mid-energy attention hog, excuse me, love bug. He's pretty chill and he enjoys meeting people away from home. He'd like the parties to not be at his house. He is mid size at 65 lbs. There are smaller pitties and bigger pitties. This is why he's the quarterback! He wants nothing more than to be on your lap getting loves and giving kisses. He's dog friendly, big or small! Luca has all his plays memorized - sit, stay, leave it, down, and shake. This boy enjoys a good walk but he'd rather be kissing you. He enjoys quality time with an antler and he likes soft toys too! Because of the extent of his medical bills we have incurred we 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.

Rex, Sr. is what is called a classic but he still has some get up and go left in him! At 10 years old, he is pretty set in his ways. He isn't the dog that will do tricks for you, he's more mature than that and he has other things to do like destroy stuffies with squeakers! Rex, Sr. is happy to go on a nice walk (he's a bit of a puller) and he likes car rides. He is a snuggle bug that is happy to sleep or hang out. He prefers to be in a crate when you leave so he can enjoy his downtime. He is kid friendly, doesn't give a hoot about cats and he isn't a fan of small dogs. Rex Sr is the sweetest boy you'll ever meet!

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 - Adoption Pending

 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!

Roxy - Adoption Pending

 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.
More info to follow as she settles in at her foster home.

Frankie

Young Frankie was surrendered to animal control when her previous owners decided they couldn't give her the life she deserved. Frankie is high energy so she will need someone that can commit to making sure she gets her exercise daily. Frankie's foster says she is Miss Sassy Pants and the life of the party! She is treat motivated and that will help with her learning her manners. She has a handle on most of them already because she is one smart cookie! Frankie would like to request a forever home with someone that is an expert at belly rubbin'. She is into squeaky toys and she is dog and cat friendly. She enjoys snacking on carrots, bananas and peanut butter so get those on your grocery list! Are you Frankie's new BFF? Fill out an application and meet her!

Thea

 Meet Thea. She is an itty, bitty, pittie baby! Clocking in at just 13 pounds, this approximately 4 month old nugget is pure gold! Thea was surrendered at animal control and CTP got her the heck out of there because a shelter is no place for babies! This little girl is a clean slate, ready for greatness! She will need a dedicated family to help her become the best girl she can be. She's working on potty training and she's treat motivated, which means her manners and obedience training should be a little easier but she's a puppy and they are a lot of work! She's still a baby so right now she loves everything.... she's dog, kid and cat friendly. She is manageable on a leash (gotta keep working with her to keep it that way!). She loves rope toys and her Kong. Do you have what it takes to raise Thea to greatness?

George

 Meet George. He entered into the Bickell Foundation's MS Stability Service Dog Program in May of 2017. 70% of the dogs that enter a service dog training program do not complete it because they don't have the “stuff” to be a service dog and that's ok! He didn't have the right stuff to be a service dog but he sure has the right stuff to be your loyal companion! Who wants to work anyway? This mid-sized 70 pound love bug is a high energy lap sitter that would rather tug and play his days away. He's dog friendly, excited about kids and curious about cats. He loves rope toys, and a peanut butter stuffed kong but he is not a fan of bananas (we all have our thing). He is house trained and a champ with basic manners like sit, lie down, shake, touch.... but needs your direction to help him master 'stay' and 'leave it'. He's working on mastering his walk. He'll need someone that can provide regular exercise. Are you the forever home for George? Fill out an application. He'd love to meet you.

Chi

During the filming of a TV show on the south side of Chicago a Good Samaritan found a young pittie tied to pole under a porch with no food, and no water. This poor pup was emaciated, covered in sores and scars, and had patches of fur missing. No one knows how long he was there. The Good Samaritan knew he needed to act quickly, and the police on the set insisted he be brought to CACC. With CACC's population count dangerously high this Good Samaritan refused to let his rescue of the pup end there, so him and his wife frantically contacted various rescues to help them get him out. That's when they found us. Chi is an extrovert that is looking for a forever home with other social butterflies. No one knows how long he was all alone under that porch so he wants to be with others. This boy will need a family that can keep him active and give him lots of attention to keep him happy. This boy wants the spotlight! Muscular and outgoing, this boy needs a little polishing to be the award winner we know he will be! His foster family says he can be left out alone and not be the destroyer or things. He isn't a big fan of the crate so he'd prefer to sleep in bed with you. He loves ear and belly rubs and he loves to hang with the humans.He is kid, dog and calm cat friendly (gonna need a chill cat). He's into chewie type things instead of those weird fuzzy toys.

Baxter

We begged to have a foster step up for a heartworm positive boy on the euth list, his “dead”line was quickly approaching. We refused to let a perfectly amazing dog die, and a huge hearted family felt the same way. They know the extent of the commitment they are making by taking him in, and they’d prefer it no other way.
He’s already seen our fantastic vet for a physical and to put a plan of action in place for his heartworm treatment, neuter, and entropion eye surgery. The road to recovery will be a long, and costly one but he’s got one heck of a team in his corner. Please help us welcome the newest member to the CTP family...Baxter. All good things from here.
Please consider donating to Baxter’s care...every penny counts, no amount is too small, and it’s all appreciated. Donations can be made using the donate button on this page, our website, or directly via PayPal using donations.chitownpitties@gmail.com
