Meet NILA! This sweetie is a 6 year old, female, 25 lb, American Staffordshire Terrier. She is teeny tiny! Nila is a gorgeous fawn color and she is just radiant in the sun - so pretty! She is great with people and kids, housetrained, and super sweet. Nila is currently staying at a wonderul doggie daycare, so she is great with other dogs. Poor Nila became homeless when her mom had to relocate out of the country and could not take Nila with her. This precious girl will bring amazing happiness to her new Forever Family! She is friendly, playful, snuggly, and a great pup. Nila is an active girl and needs exercise, so no couch potatoes, please. Long walks on a lovely Fall day would be Heaven with Nila! Fill out our application right away, so this precious pocket pup can greet you at the door soon!


NOTE: We do NOT adopt out of state. Our range is no further than 50 miles from Chicago. This is because we PERSONALLY do home visits for every single dog / puppy. Exceptions ONLY in certain cases where a sweetie has issues (medical / behavioral / special needs) and we have had him / her for a longer time. We will then travel to the Moon for a Forever Family!

About Lovin' Life Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lovin' Life Rescue is a Chicago-based, young, 501(c)(3) non-profit, GREEN, companion animal rescue organization with a no-kill policy. United and inspired by our compassion for all animals, we focus our talents and previous rescue experience on saving innocent dogs and cats that are homeless, neglected or abused. In addition to supporting and participating in spaying & neutering, our contribution to helping make Chicago a No-Kill city is to educate the community with the simple mantra that Pets are Family… they are not disposable. We actively advocate local concerns, focusing in particular on dog-fighting issues and education, as well.

Our Adoption Process...

Lovin' Life Rescue is dedicated to finding Forever Families for our precious dogs & cats. Our adoption process is set up to make sure that our sweetie is the right match for you. If you are interested in adopting, please follow our required procedures:

You must be at least 24 years old.

Fill out an application. (This helps us learn more about you to determine if your lifestyle is the best fit for the potential “adoptee”.)

Participate in an interview with an LLR Adoption Counselor.

Schedule a Home Visit with an Adoption Coordinator. (This is to ensure the home is safe for the animal.)

Sign an Adoption Contract and make a tax deductible Adoption Fee Donation. This amount varies and starts at $350 for dogs & puppies, $100 for cats & kittens, and $100 for kittens being adopted as a pair. Additionally, kittens must either be adopted as a pair or must go to a home with another cat.

All of our sweeties are microchipped, spayed / neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, FIV & Feline Leukemia tested, and treated for parasites (worms, fleas, mites, etc.).

NOTE: We are a small, volunteer organization and receive many applications. You will be contacted only if we feel you are a potential match. Thank you for understanding.
