Facts about Trixie

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Gray/Silver/Salt & Pepper - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
FOSTERED IN: Elgin, IL (60124)
AGE: About 3 years
WEIGHT: 49 lbs, don’t you dare round up.

HISTORY: Trixie came from animal control. She arrived as a stray very underweight and missing large patches of hair. It is obvious she has had multiple litters of puppies. While she was at animal control she became very sick and had to spent a month in boarding at a vet until she was well enough to go to her foster home.

ABOUT: Trixie is up to a much better weight and her hair is growing in very quickly showing us her beautiful brindle coat. Trixie’s foster family decided that they wanted her to have some freedom after being kenneled for so long so they decided to take a risk and not crate her. She has proven herself trustworthy. She is contained to one room of the house, but has never destroyed anything. She also has not had any accidents save one she had when her tummy wasn’t feeling in tip-top shape. Trixie is also agreeable to having a bath even though it isn’t her favorite activity. She will bark if something especially exciting happens outside, but overall she’s pretty quiet.

Her foster home immediately offered her toys to play with, but it was quickly evident that she had no idea what to do with them. She was in her foster home for weeks before she finally figured out what they were for. Her foster mom was elated the first time she really got the hang of it and had fun with her toys. Trixie loves everyone she meets and is very affection-motivated. She loves cuddles and snuggles and belly rubs. She is not hyper, but she loves to trot around the fenced yard at the foster home and then come back to sit next to her foster mom. She currently sleeps in her dog bed with a fleece blanket to cuddle in. She does love to sit on the couch with her foster mom when she gets some private snuggle time.

Trixie loves to play with her foster siblings and changes play style as necessary (one adult female, one puppy female). It seems that she gets along with any dog who is nice to her. She is apprehensive of new dogs initially, but once she realizes they are friendly she relaxes and is open to playing. She has had her fair share of litters of puppies before being rescued, and she seems to be extra wary of large males. But as long as they're friendly to her, she'll willingly be their friend back. She just needs controlled introductions so she can become comfortable.

This sweet, people-pleaser is ready to be adopted as a pet, not a cash-cow. She’ll repay you the only way she knows how. With love.

About Lulu's Locker Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lulu’s Locker Rescue is a nonprofit, volunteer-run companion animal rescue working to bring to light the plight of black cats and dogs in shelters as well as the misconceptions surrounding FIV cats. We aim to lower the euthanasia rate of these animals by educating the public and providing foster care as we seek out permanent homes. We are committed to the protection of the misjudged and wrongly stereotyped through compassion and respect, which we believe both animals and human beings deserve.

We are based out of Frankfort, IL, and rescue cats and dogs in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Our Adoption Process...

We encourage potential adopters to ask friends, family, and Lulu’s Locker about companion animal experiences in their lives. We want to ensure the animal we adopt to you fits well in your home environment. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about long-term animal care prior to adopting! Please contact us via email or phone 708-325-8581.

Everything we do is for the animals in our care, and is aimed at giving them the best possible chance of finding a permanent home.

- Fill out this online Adoption Application to get the process rolling! Copy and paste this URL into your browser -->

- Once your Application is completed, you will have a phone conversation with an adoption counselor.

- Once you’ve been approved, s/he will fill you in on the personalities, history, and behavior of the animals to allow you to make the best choice possible for your living situation. You can ask your counselor any questions you have regarding health, behavior, and long-term care.

- You and all members of your household will then be invited to visit the foster home or boarding facility where the animal is currently living. If you decide adoption is right for you, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee which covers the spay/neuter, wellness exam, vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test (dogs only).

- Animals are subject to a home visit prior to completion of the adoption process.

- You will ALWAYS have continued support from Lulu’s Locker after your adoption! We invite you to contact us at any time with questions or concerns!
