Maddie's Story...
We rescued Maddie from Chicago Animal Control at the end of march. She was noted to be 9-years-old. She has a greyed muzzle, and spends most of the day relaxing (on your lap if she could) but picks up the pace when it’s time to go for a jog around the block. Maddie asks to go outside to relieve herself. Walks very easily on a leash. She is excited to see other dogs, but hasn’t had the chance to meet new dogs since she’s on a 2-week quarantine after leaving Animal Control. At Animal Control she was successfully introduced to multiple other dogs, so we are under the impression that she is good with other dogs.

After a visit to the vet and a good bath, Maddie settled in and felt safe and sound in her foster home. At the vet, she was completely vaccinated, heartworm tested negative and was prescribed antibiotics for “kennel cough” and for a prophylactic treatment before she gets a dental next week. One week later, her cough is almost gone and she will be ready for a dental next week.

Maddie’s dental situation is bad! That’s why we’re getting her in for a cleaning and probable extractions as soon as possible. We think her teeth are causing her discomfort and this is why she is reluctant to eat dry food (although she's eager to eat any wet food, cheese, veggie dogs, and any other way we get her to eat her pills). Senior animals require a lot more medical then a young animal to prepare them for adoption. Dental costs alone for a senior dog who likely has never had her teeth cleaned will run several hundred dollars not including the other medical services already rendered. Regardless, we will ensure that Maddie is healthy and comfortable before heading to her forever home (which can be any time after her dental).

Maddie loves going for walks and soaking up the sun. She can’t wait for springtime so she can lay on the grass in feel the warm sunrays on her coat. Maddie is very nice, low key, and unfazed by kids, other dogs, people. INQUIRE AND APPLY TODAY!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maddie, a Chicago Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever for sale in Chicago, or seeking a 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 Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
