Pepper

This itty bitty brindle babe was surrendered to a south side shelter at the tender age of 5 months because she "was too much work." Really?! Of course she was work, she's a puppy and that's part of the deal. Well guess what...we will happily put in the time.

Dillon

Dillon is approximately 2 years old and spent 3 months in the shelter before Chi-Town Pitties busted him out to give him a new life!
 Dillon is a diamond in the rough. Do you have that is takes to make him shine?
 He's eager to learn all the things that will make him the perfect family member. He is currently in training classes!) He knows sit, down and come but is learning the more refined manners we humans want from our pups. He's manageable on the leash but requires some polishing so a patient owner will help him shine. He only barks at other dogs is they start it. Seems fair.
 He's dog friendly (playing and napping) and a low energy, shadow dog (he likes to follow you) who has mad cuddle skills. He does pick up his energy level with his foster dog sister and enjoys rough housing but is good about calming down when told. He is learning about the magic of toys. He hasn't shown a whole lot of interest but he does go for a good Nylabone and it's possible squeak toys might be something he'll go for in the future. His foster dog sister has been trying to teach him the way of the toy.
 Dillon is crate and potty trained. He loves to be outside and enjoys a good sun worshipping session so he'd probably really like a fenced in yard to enjoy.
 So, what's the catch? Well .... he gets sick in the car. Not a big deal breaker but Dillon may not be a great traveling companion and might prefer to be more of stay at home kinda kid. It's possible it could go away but it's something to be aware of. Also, this boy likes being pampered. That isn't a negative but you know.. you should plan accordingly. Write those snuggles and grooming sessions into your planner.

Tugs

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.

Luca - Not Ready For Adoption Yet

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.

Stitch 

Stitch lived her whole young life outside, starving for food and human contact. She was surrendered to the shelter along with her mama and a sibling. She now 7 months old and wants a loving, safe and forever home. Are you going to be her everything? This young girl is as cute as they come.. adorable, sweet, precious, darling,.. she has all the adjectives!
 Where should we start with this bundle of cute? She's a puppy so she has that energy and playfulness. She's child, dog and people friendly.. in fact, she loves meeting new people, which is so great for her socialization. She loves to get snuggles and her favorite spot for scratches is under her chin so make sure you make a note of that.
She loves her toys.. bring on the squeaky ones, the chewy dentastix kind, the ice cubes. Wait.. ice cubes? Look.. she spent her early life without toys so that girl is resourceful. She can make a toy out of anything. She loves to run around but she's just as happy cuddling up when you are.
 Now, she's a puppy so this girl needs training! She needs all the training. She needs a dedicated loved one to help her figure out proper leash etiquette as she's a puller. She also needs normal manners like sit, down, stay, come.. she's a blank slate! Help write her amazing story!

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.

Chip - Adoption Pending

Chip is that perfect little kid that you know will grow up to be the star quarterback, homecoming king and probably get into med school. He's young so he's still learning but he has star potential. He hasn't met a dog, kid, or person he doesn't like. He is even gentle with and curious about his foster cat sister. He's great with kids and he knows he shouldn't jump. He loves running around and playing with his foster dog brother but Chip is also very into a Netflix and cuddle binge. He's about 30 pounds right now so he fits into the pocket pit category ... we'll have to see if he packs on more weight as he grows. Stay tuned!
Can we just talk about those ears? I mean... come on. 'Nuff said.
Chip is easy to please. Give him a chew bone, toys or a kong filled with peanut butter and you are set! He likes playing with balls but he's too busy to bring them back to you. He has things to sniff and things to do! He's up for anything and isn't picky about treats or food. He is a superstar on the leash and knows sit and lay down but he's still working on other manners like come, stay and so on. Look, he masters one thing at a time and moves down the list. He is a little scared of loud and noisy things like mowers and vacuums. Who likes that stuff?!

Beau - Adoption Pending

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!
