Rescue Me ID: 17-05-24-00290Milo (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    From a friend: 'I was out walking Libby a couple weeks ago when a man did a double take at us and pulled over. He noticed I had a pitbull, and decided to ask for my help. He told me that he owns a healthy, 1-year-old pit that he needs to rehome. He is going through a divorce, and needs to get rid of his dog ASAP. He was devastated telling me the story because he loves this dog with his whole heart. Milo is a healthy, one-year-old neutered male pitbull. He loves everyone and everything. His owner said he's wonderful with other dogs, people, children and cats. He sounds perfect. The owner is doing everything he can to avoid taking him to our ... (Read More)full city shelter where he'll be at high risk for euthanasia. Please share this post, and help me find Milo a loving home!!! I told the owner I will do everything in my power to help. I'm telling you - there's almost nothing better than being a pitbull owner. Do you want a dog that shows soooo much love and LOVES TO CUDDLE?!?' MJane (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-24-00126Wilbur (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    FOSTER OR ADOPTER NEEDED- WILBUR WAS SURRENDERED TO A SHELTER ALMOST 300 DAYS AGO! Currently in Evanston. This love, Wilbur, is 3-4 years old. Sweet boy loves everyone he meets. He's housebroken and knows basic commands (sit, stay, down). He's a medium energy dog who enjoys walks but also enjoys sitting on your lap like he's 10 lbs and watching TV. Wilbur has been around kids but he can get very excited very fast. Overall, he's pretty easy in a home and most of his training will be around walking him as he can react to other dogs. He does best when he has one consistent handler, and we believe he will respond well to the consistency of a ... (Read More)loving home. TOhanian (Less)

Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *DOUGIE HAS BEEN IN BOARDING FOR MONTHS AND NEEDS A FOSTER OR ADOPTER* Currently in Chicago. Honest to God, I've rarely met a dog with this much personality. Not once but twice, he literally took almost a running start and did a somersault in the grass. %BD%BD%BD%BD I think I smiled the entire time we were together. Doug (aka Dougie Fresh which just makes it waaay better) admittedly has a lot of energy initially, but this sweetest guy calmed down remarkably once we started on our walk, and almost every time I reached down to pet him, he'd either press into me or throw himself on the ground for some belly lovins lol. He responded SO ... (Read More)well to praise and food that it's hard to believe he'd be difficult to train at all. We went on a nice adventure around the city but I honestly believe he would have been just as happy totally soaking up all the attention and love he could get. He's a SUPER affectionate little man who's been waiting for his day for way too long. Just a baby at 1.5-2 years old and does great with other dogs. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-16-00291Odin (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    WILL BE EUTHANIZED TOMORROW. URGENT! TRANSPORT AVAILABLE. Odin needs a foster or new home. He is a 5 year old, 80lb, diabetic, neutered male. He loves the ladies and is a fantastic cuddler. He's perfectly house broken and wonderful on a leash. His greatest joy in life is laying in your lap and playing with toys. He gets insulin twice a day but it's incredible easy to give and he's an angel for the pokes. He had a rough start in life so he needs someone patient and possibly familiar with the breed. He loves other dogs, has not been cat tested and should only be around older kids.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This hunk of love is 4 year old Bubba, and he's SO ready for his forever home! Sweet man was brought in as a stray months ago and for some reason continually gets passed up. Bubba is great with his humans but is stressed out around the chaos of a shelter environment, and right now it's looking like a home without other dogs may be best. Please give this boy a chance to show you how incredible he is. Adopters must live within 50 miles of Tinley Park.

Border Collie Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dash needs a long term foster (or adopter) NOW. He was saved from death row almost a week ago and there has been no interest at all from anyone. His emergency short-term foster can't keep him and he needs a home by the weekend. Dash is 10 years old and very sweet. He still has energy for a senior and does have some separation anxiety issues so someone home often is ideal. He's a bit too interested in kitties. He is fully vetted and healthy and currently located in Champaign area but can likely be transported. PLEASE consider adding Dash to your home as this is urgent.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lexi has been with us for nearly a year now. Her first six months were focused on correcting injuries incurred prior to her arrival within the BAARK program. She has been hit by a car and suffered a severe fracture to her leg, which had healed in an akward L-shape. Since December, she has been residing at The Dog House of Barrington, While the staff is absolutely awesome and provides wonderful care for her, exercise her regularly and give her plenty of play time....it's still not a home and family of her own. Lexi is 3-4 years old, and a larger (and strong) girl, of about 70 lbs. She is very playful and pretty energetic. Because of her ... (Read More)size and stature, she is a bit intimidating to other dogs. But there is NOTHING aggressive (or dog aggressive) about her. She enjoys playing with other dogs (but is a rough player needing some doggie manners), is fabulous with kids, fine with smaller dogs and ignores cats. She walks well on a leash too. Lexi needs your help in finding a forever home....or even a foster home....willing to provide her a family of her own. (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *BRUISER WAS SURRENDERED BY HIS FAMILY OVER A YEAR AGO AND NEEDS A FOSTER OR ADOPTER ASAP* Currently in North Chicago. This boy has so much love to give. Bruiser was given up by his owner when he lost his home. Two hearts were broken that day, his and Bruiser's. This dog greets you with a roll down your leg and on his back. All he wants in life is to be loved. So much so that he prefers to be the only animal in the home. Please help us save Bruiser. Bruiser is five years old and was in his home for four years. For the last year of his life, he has been stuck in a kennel just waiting for his true forever person/family.

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *CHICAGO HEIGHTS* Meet my buddy Landon! He was seen hanging around behind a Marcus Theater for over a week (and turns out, he loves popcorn). A Good Samaritan was able to catch him, feed him some popcorn, and get him safe. :) He's about 1.5 years old, and a very quiet dog. When you walk into his area, everyone is barking....but him. He's always laying on his bed, just chilling. He LOVES walks, and perks up when he seems me because he knows he gets to go to the park. He's great on a leash, and doesn't seem to react negatively toward other dogs or pay much attention (he met some puppies through a kennel door and he just wagged his tail). ... (Read More)He's pretty affectionate, and has the usual energy of a younger dog. One only knows what his life was like before he came to us, but he deserves to have a home of his own; a couch to sit next to you on while you sneak him some popcorn %9D%A4%90 (Less)

She's very calm, is always curled up in her bed napping, is and waiting patiently for her family. She LOVES to go for walks, and still has the energy of a young pup. She's very affectionate, and has no problem spoiling you with kisses. She knows how to sit, how to shake, and she's great on a leash. She seems to love everyone she meets as well, whether two legged or four. All Beatrice needs is a bed or couch to nap in, a place to lay her head and take in the sunshine.

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *CHICAGO HEIGHTS* This gorgeous girl is Shadow, a 5 year old Retriever/Border Collie mix that was surrendered by her family an entire YEAR ago and has been stuck at a shelter ever since. She is very, very sweet and surprisingly very active for her size! She behaves nicely on a leash and has gotten so much better with her manners. In her last home, she became protective of the male owner. We would recommend she go to a quiet household with people who understand that she will need to be kept well socialized to avoid any more guarding issues. Many dogs with similar issues do better once they have structure and training. Due to her tendency to ... (Read More)guard people/toys/food, we would recommend that she be the only dog in the household. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 

    This very petite 1.5 year old female is in desperate need of a foster or adopter. She can live with dogs but she is dominant and the reason she is homeless is due to attacking a neighbor dog in her condo complex. She needs a dog savvy owner and she comes with training. She is super sweet and medium energy. Her favorite thing is cuddling. Spayed and up to date on shots. She is an awesome dog that just needs the right situation to thrive. Reni

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    **ROSA HAS BEEN STUCK IN BOARDING FOR *YEARS* AND NEEDS A FOSTER OR ADOPTER** Sweet Rosa was boarded many years ago by her truck driver owner. Eventually her owner just stopped coming back for her and she too, became a permanent fixture at the facility. She has been cared for but boarding is meant to be temporary...this is no life for any dog. She is missing her buddy Leo terribly and deserves so much more. Rosa is estimated to be around 8 years old. Appears to be a german shep mix and is on the smaller side at approx 45 pounds. She is very sweet, laid back and low energy. She will make a very easy pet for someone. Just likes to hang out ... (Read More)quietly and take in the scenery. We tested her today with a larger male & female, she pretty much wanted to avoid them but when they finally met she did grumble a bit. We would like her to go to a dog-free home for now, just so she has calm space to decompress in. She showed no interest in cats that were out in office area when Rosa walked thru. Our wish for Rosa is to find a real home where she can lay on a soft bed or blanket and rest her old bones for the rest of her days. Her rear legs seem a bit stiff, which I am sure is from years of laying on the hard kennel floors. We are planning to have her vetted and better assess her health and if she has any medical needs. Also will be getting her up-to-date on her shots. Please share this sweet ol'gal for us and help her find the wonderful 2nd chance like her bestfriend Leo did. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    DEERFIELD, IL (not Tinley) Puggie is an adorable dog that lost his home of 10 years. Older dogs who have known love like Puggie make good pets because they bond quickly with their new owners. Puggie takes a little longer to warm up to new people but wags his tail when he sees his friends at the shelter who he has gotten to know and love. He likes to go for walks but, like a lot of older guys, he has a strong personality and likes to decide which direction to go. He would also prefer no kids in the house and no other dogs. Please consider coming to meet this little man who still has so much life and love to offer.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    DEERFIELD, IL (not Tinley) Lucy does not act her age at all, so don't dismiss her as being a couch potato. Lucy walks at a quick pace (and will occasionally even run for a bit) and jumps on and off benches with ease. Lucy is a big snuggler and will plop herself into your lap and wriggle around excitedly while giving you lots of doggy kisses. She makes funny snuffling noises when she's happy, and several volunteers refer to her as 'the alien' because of her cute bulging eyes. If you've been thinking about opening your home to a senior, stop by soon to see if Lucy is the one for you!

They can be a little bark-y inside their kennel but were pretty mellow when we were hanging out in the off-leash run. Chester spent the first few minutes sniffing in the bushes and exploring. Chester came up to me and get some pets. Chester is friendly and seems to walk pretty nicely on the leash and play fetch! Who wouldn't want to be part of this fun every day? Come in soon to see if Chester is the one for you!

Lab Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    DEERFIELD, IL Scotty is a sweetheart. He walks nicely on the leash and just loves spending time with people. Scotty will stay by your side as long as you're petting him and particularly likes getting scratched on his back and hips. Scotty has a horseshoe-shaped marking on his back, which we keep hoping will bring him some luck! Scotty is a mellow senior looking for a loving home. Scotty needs a ranch style home, being older and arthritic he can longer do stairs very well. He also needs to be the only pet in the home. Scotty certainly seems like he knows just how to be a good pet: he's housebroken, he walks nicely on the leash, he's calm, and ... (Read More)he enjoys being around people. This big boy doesn't understand why he lost his first family but he's more than ready to enjoy the rest of his life with a new one.

One pup passed but I made sure my other 11 remained healthy. They have all been adopted and I am looking for my forever home. My foster mom said i would do best in a home without small kids. I can be a bit choosy on who will be my foster dad or forever dad. I showed no interest in my previous fosters cats. I currently live with other dog siblings and show no food agression. I do like my treats and will sit and take them like a lady! My foster mom also says that I love to play and I have great energy ...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 

    INDIANA Holly doesn't have a good past, but amazingly, she is still just the sweetest, gentle girl... she healed, and has turned into a lovebug who loves to cuddle. Unfortunately though, she is dog selective and has reacted a couple times to the other dogs in her foster home, so she can't stay there anymore. We are desperate to find someone who would understand her and that she needs a little TLC. She sometimes gets wary of new loud/brash people... she just needs some reassurance that she's safe. Poor baby has been thru so much. EDC

    COLFAX, IL Ringo is such a sweet dog, who loves people, but he was an owner-surrender because he didn't get along with the other pets in the house. You can easily take him for walks and have no issues with other dogs you may come across.

    COLFAX, IL My name is Panda. I'm only 2 years old, and I've found myself at the shelter already! I'm an English bull dog mix, and I like to run and go for walks outside. I'm also a stuffy toy destroyer extraordinaire and love pulling apart the stuffed animals you give me to play with. I tend to be very protective of my food, so I'd do best in a home without kids. Food aggression can easily be worked with over time, but someone has to be willing to put in a little time and have patience with me to keep us both safe. I am pretty much house-trained, but I will need some work again when I get back into a home to learn your routine and what is ... (Read More)expected of me. I want all of your attention, so I need to be the only pet in a home. I also need to learn some leash manners, as I like to go, go, go and pull hard on my leash when you're walking me. I am young and happy to learn though if you'll give me a chance and some time! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-06-00185Cali (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Colfax IL Cali is a sweet, energetic pittie mix up for adoption. She recently had puppies, and her last puppy went home with its new family very recently. Now it's her turn to find a home and go back to being a puppy herself. She is only 2.5 years old and loves people and attention. She especially seems to love kids! She is high energy, so might knock really tiny ones over, but she loves to crawl up next tothem (and really anyone) and give them kisses. She knows how to sit for treats, but she could use some leash training as she is pretty strong when you take her on walks. She used to live with another male dog prior to coming to the ... (Read More)shelter, so we think she should be okay with other dogs in the home. We'd just have to do a meet and greet to make sure they got along! *hw (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-31-00408Petey (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My handsome date, Petey. He is smart, funny, a great cuddler & kisser and has great manners! Petey is still in boarding and desperately in need of a foster or adopter! Petey is a 2-3 yr old pittie mix. He does not enjoy little dogs ( may be ok with bigger dogs with proper intro). He is neutered & up to date on his vaccines. He LOVES people and just wants to be by you. He knows his basic commands and it very treat motivated. He even does great with the agility course and is eager to learn. Please consider meeting this boy. It is heartbreaking having to put him back in his kennel each time. He deserves a warm bed and happy home so very much.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    **COLFAX, IL** This is Charlie, one of our bigger pit mixes at CISAR. He is 4-5 years old and very strong. He would do best with someone who has experience with the breed or other similar big dog breed. He has great basic obedience with sit, down, and walking by your side when on a correction collar. He does have a fear of men he doesn't know and trust, so this is something we are working on with him and his adopter would have to be patient with as well. He has the best smile, loves to be a lap dog and get belly rubs, and loves to play with toys. He seems to get along well with most dogs he has been introduced to and played with. You will ...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    **COLFAX, IL** George is seriously great! He loves people. His favorite thing in the world is to go on walks and roll around in the grass and maybe fit a few belly rubs in as long as he's down there! His next favorite thing (maybe tied for favorite) is laying on the couch next to you, snuggling and getting belly rubs. He gets the zoomies and is so cute when he wants to play. He takes treats nicely and is a very sweet dog! George will give you so much love and tons of laughs. He's a handsome guy too! Look at that face!

Volunteers say: Mixie craves attention and would love to be your new best friend! She is a dark brindled lab/boxer mix who is always smiling and wagging her tail. We think she is between 9 and 10 years old, but she is still very active! You'd never guess her age if it wasn't for her soft, graying muzzle.

Bulldog Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    **COLFAX, IL** Poor Keno is an 8+ year old American bull dog mix that has a sad story. He was surrendered by his family because they decided they didn't want to watch their senior dog grow old and have his health deteriorate. They felt it was better for them to abandon him at the shelter. We are hopeful that Keno will find a new home where they will truly consider him family and give him the best life possible until the end. Poor Keno has some arthritis in his back leg, and a couple of open wounds we'll need to treat, but that doesn't stop him from wagging his tail at the new people he's meeting in this strange and scary place he's found ...

He is very scared at the shelter so far, but he did take some treats gently after a little time with him to gain his trust. We are told he is good with other dogs, but we have not tested him yet. As we learn more about Lucky, we'll update his information.

Greyhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    **COLFAX, IL** Bailey is 4.5 years old and was looking for human attention even her first day in a new shelter. The noisy kennel area did not seem to scare her, nor did any of the people who came to visit. She is very strong on walks and is also very energetic. I would guess she has some hunting/hound dog in her based on her big barrel chest and the way she follows her nose. She does have a tapered, sleek waist and a very narrow face, so I can see where the greyhound traits could be coming through as well. We are told she is very scared of fireworks, so a nice, quiet place in the country or at least a family who will keep her safe and ...

He shows horribly in his kennel because he barks for attention, and when you have a head the size of basketball and weigh 100 lbs, it's a little intimidating!! The other side of Monty, as soon as he's out of the kennel, is a very happy, smart beefy boy who just wants attention and to please his human friends. Don't let his ...

She is very patient and will lay down and wait if you're on a walk and want to stop and chat. She's a larger female, probably 70 #s and could afford to gain a few pounds still. Her previous owners say she is still very energetic and loves to chase after balls. She also used to live with other dogs.

Boxer Mix    Age: Senior


    DEERFIELD, IL (not Tinley) ~9 yrs old Lucy is such a sweetheart. The first thing she does when we take her out of her kennel is to give us a doggy hug and try her best to reach up and give us doggy kisses. The card on her kennel indicates that she walks on the slower side, but she walks at the perfect speed if your main interest is strolling around the neighborhood. Lucy loves to snuggle. Whenever we sit down on the bench in the off-leash run, Lucy is quick to follow suit and happily stays next to us while we pet her. You can't ask for a much better companion than that! If you're looking for a sweet older dog who just wants to love you and ... (Read More)be loved in return, come in soon to meet Lucy. OTS (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-21-00283Bella (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Senior


    DEERFIELD (not Tinley) 11 yrs. Bella is one of our favorites. We say this about her every time, but it's because it's so true: Bella is the definition of 'gentle giant.' She's one of the largest dogs at the shelter right now, but one of the easiest to walk on the leash. Bella loves to snuggle and give doggy kisses. Her favorite place to get pet is her back, but her ears and chin are good choices too! Bella would like to be the only dog in her new home. All she's looking for is a loving family to join for her golden years. She has so much love to offer!

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-14-00389Benny (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult


    **Benny was abandoned and will need to go to a shelter if a home for him isn't found** From finder: I found a pitbull mix in my hallway at one of my properties. Based on what my tenant said the neighborhood kids were throwing rocks at him and abusing him. As if that wasn't enough his owners who were the neighbors moved away this past weekend and purposely left this sweet boy behind. I couldn't bring myself to put him back on the streets or take him to a shelter where he would potentially be put down so I took him to the hospital. They checked for a microchip but he didn't have one and they were kind enough to give him some flea ... (Read More)medication, food and a nice bath. We tried to find a rescue group or someone to take him in for the time being but we've had no luck. My sister is being kind enough to let me keep him in her insulated garage until we figure something out. His basic necessities are covered, but he can't live in a garage forever, and we know he deserves so much more than this. I have emailed and called several rescue organizations but they are either full to capacity or have told me that they need to rescue him from a shelter. I am truly at a loss and don't know who else to contact at this point.

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult


    **URGENT!! SARGIE HAS BEEN STUCK IN BOARDING FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS AND RESCUE CAN NO LONGER PAY BILL TO KEEP HIM THERE.** Through no fault of his own, Sargie has had a rough past- given up and now placed in boarding. Sargie is a lover and cuddler. He is VERY food motivated and loves to please his handler. Sargie loves to go on long walks, runs, or hikes. He loves the water and the car. Sargie has amazing leash manners but is a bit hyper at first due to being in a kennel for several months. Sadly, Sargie received very little socialization and training in the 3 years he was living with his adoptive family, so Sargie has some fear issues that ... (Read More)we are working on. He needs a foster that has no other pets and no children. Sargie has begun training in our facility with their personal trainer. Sargie is such a good boy and does not deserve to be in boarding...but until we find proper foster placement, this is our only way to keep him safe. We are praying we can find a foster for him quickly...to bring the joy back in to his heart. (Less)
