Dillon is approximately 2 years old and spent 3 months in the shelter before Chi-Town Pitties busted him out to give him a new life!

Dillon is a diamond in the rough. Do you have that is takes to make him shine?

He's eager to learn all the things that will make him the perfect family member. He is currently in training classes!) He knows sit, down and come but is learning the more refined manners we humans want from our pups. He's manageable on the leash but requires some polishing so a patient owner will help him shine. He only barks at other dogs is they start it. Seems fair.

He's dog friendly (playing and napping) and a low energy, shadow dog (he likes to follow you) who has mad cuddle skills. He does pick up his energy level with his foster dog sister and enjoys rough housing but is good about calming down when told. He is learning about the magic of toys. He hasn't shown a whole lot of interest but he does go for a good Nylabone and it's possible squeak toys might be something he'll go for in the future. His foster dog sister has been trying to teach him the way of the toy.

Dillon is crate and potty trained. He loves to be outside and enjoys a good sun worshipping session so he'd probably really like a fenced in yard to enjoy.

So, what's the catch? Well .... he gets sick in the car. Not a big deal breaker but Dillon may not be a great traveling companion and might prefer to be more of stay at home kinda kid. It's possible it could go away but it's something to be aware of. Also, this boy likes being pampered. That isn't a negative but you know.. you should plan accordingly. Write those snuggles and grooming sessions into your planner.

About Chi-Town Pitties, Inc.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is to fill out an application (applicant must be at least 23 years of age). Once your application is received a volunteer will contact you to discuss your application. All references listed will be contacted, along with a call to your veterinarian to make sure your current/former pets are/were up to date on all vaccinations. We also complete a background check and home visit will be performed. Once all that is complete, and application is approved, we will arrange meet and greets with our adoptables that may be a good fit for your family and lifestyle. If a perfect match is found, an adoption contract will need to be signed, along with an adoption fee.
