Duke's Story...
Duke has been adopted!

Duke is the most adorable and loving pittie pup about 9 weeks old. Duke and his sister Daisy were picked up as strays and have quickly won over our hearts. The sores on their backs appear to be either burns or abrasions and are almost completely healed! Daisy and Duke also have a bit of a cold right now, but are responding very well to antibiotics. We are now accepting applications so we can place Duke once he is all better.

Duke has a delightful temperament and just loves to cuddle with everyone. He is very gentle and submissive and will do well with another canine companion. Duke loves playing with his toys and pouncing and rolling around with his sister. His soft eyes and sweet personality show us that he has the makings of a pitbull ambassador and a great family pet. Duke is marked as special needs because he may need to remain in a splint for about 6-8 weeks while we attempt to correct the growth of his front left wrist. Duke's wrist may have developed improperly due to it breaking and not being set right or not being cared for correctly as a baby. His leg does not slow him down at all and the vet says that he will continue to have life long use of it without needing surgery. Please come meet this wonderful pup today and we know he will melt your heart too!!!

*Resources will be provided at time of adoption for Duke to be neutered!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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