Olive's Info...

Olive's Story...
This is Miss Olive, a gentle soul who aims to please. This 1 1/2 year old girl came into Waukegan Animal Control as a stray; judging from her kind demeanor, she was clearly someone's pet at some point in time. Olive weighs about 50 lbs; she currently lives in her foster home with 2 small dogs and a cat and gets along great with them. She has puppy energy and enthusiasm but knows when it's time to relax and cuddle.

Olive seems to have had a rough start to life, however she has a big heart and is willing to forgive and forget and move forward. Olive has had a litter of pups in her past and loves to try and "mother" her small foster siblings.

This fast-learner is potty-trained, and working on basic obedience. If you are interested in opening up your hearts and home to this wonderful dog, please submit an application online at: Upon receipt, a volunteer will contact you. Thank you for your interest!

Olive will only be placed into a forever home that is located within 1.5 hours of Lake & McHenry Counties in Illinois...(sorry, NO exceptions).**

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Olive, a Cary American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Cary, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Cary.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cary already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cary breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cary paves the way for another one to be saved.
