Meet Tofu!

Tofu is a very special dog to us- we went to animal control and we couldn't help but notice this scruffy, old chihuahua who was play jumping in his cage just BEGGING to get out amidst the chaos of other barking dogs.

We opened the cage door and this little chubby dog leaps into our arms- literally clear out of his cage into our arms. He immediately relaxes and burrows into us. Only a monster could've put him back into that cage at that point so, out we walked with this happy-as-can-be senior chihuahua.

The story gets better... We open the car door and he jumps two feet off the ground into the SUV then hops onto the seat where he squeezes as close as he can next to the nearest person, and just chills the whole ride (please see his profile picture).

He may actually be one of the most obviously happy dogs to have ever had a freedom ride. He smiles almost all of the time and it melts your heart completely. He just knew that his diva self didn't belong in a cramped cage so he made sure to get himself noticed so he can be taxied to his new home.

At his foster home, he fits in just swimmingly with the resident Pitties and other Chihuahua. He doesn't mind the cat one bit and slept soundly in his crate all night. He has zero issues with resource guarding and will make an excellent addition to any home who wants a dog who will crown himself their new best friend.

About Players for Pits, NFP

About Our Rescue Group...

Players for Pits is a 501c3, non profit rescue that connects professional athletes to the community in order to come together to take a stand against the abuse and neglect of animals. PFP serves the western suburbs of Chicago and is a foster based rescue, so the dogs in our care are in foster homes learning the basics of being a well balanced dog versus being in cages at loud boarding facilities.

The athletes involved in our rescue actively support the rescue efforts and help by spreading the word of dogs in need. It is the mission of Players for Pits to educate dog owners about proper pet care - both physical and mental - so that the dogs in our care can be happy, well balanced members of society. It is our goal to rescue dogs from high kill shelters and place them into loving homes in the suburbs. At Players for Pits we stand up for pit bulls, who's character is routinely tarnished and often misrepresented. We recognize the pit bull for what it is: a DOG. And any dog with the right care and owners can be a wonderful pet. While we are an advocate for pit bulls, we do not discriminate based on breed and will take in other breeds if they need you help. Players for Pits is also very active in the community and we co-host clinics to help struggling families maintain their pets health, we train pit bull type dogs to become therapy dogs for children with abusive backgrounds, and we try to involve the community in our goal to reduce pet abandonment.
