Sally's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Sally's Story...
Sally was rescued as a stray in a blizzard this past January. She suffered a gunshot to her right front leg and is suspected to have been abused likely by a man and trusts slowly. But once she trusts you, she smothers you with love and kisses! She spent several weeks in a loving foster home but due to issues with the landlord, she then lived on a farm up near Rockford for 3 months. She is had a great time, but deserves to live in a home were she can snuggle up on the sofa and take a nap. If you are willing to be patient and earn Sally's trust, please consider her for foster/adoption. Sally is approximately 2 to 3 years old, she is spayed up to date on her shots, heartworm negative and on prevention medication, microchip and ready to take that next up. She is good with children, women, may need a slow introduction to some men and at this point, we have not tested her with dogs, but we suspect that she will be fine with other dogs. She needs an experienced handler, someone who can dedicate lots of 1:1 time to help her with trust issues and continue her training. Her adoption will come with life time training at Chicago Canine Company as well as any other support that might be needed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago 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 Chicago 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/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
