Facts about Aiden

  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Young

This is Aiden.

Every single day we get messages about dogs in need. Every single day without fail. Two weeks ago, we got a message from someone who took a dog out of a bad situation and needed some help. This message was different than the other usual "I'm moving" or "I'm having a baby" excuses we receive. So, we replied and started talking.

This dog was about to be set loose by his former "owners" because he was of no use to them any longer. A kind woman heard about this and immediately went to pick the dog up and take him to animal control to do the responsible thing that the first "owners" refused to do. She met them and they handed her this dog, a young male, out of the trunk of their car, by holding his scruff with one hand and the skin right above his tail with the other. It was obvious he was suffering from being way too hot in the trunk. He vomited and was so overheated that he couldn't do much more than pant and try to regulate his own temperature. He drank so much water once his rescuer had him safely in her car.

Once alone, she realized how sweet he was when he was able to recover from the excessive heat. He seemed timid around males since he clearly wasn't treated well in his former home. She knew if he was taken to animal control, as a Pittie mix with fear based issues, he would likely be facing a death sentence. She refused to let that happen. His rescuer spent endless hours reaching out to almost every single rescue or animal shelter in the Chicago area looking for someone to help this dog that so badly needed a chance.

We decided that we needed to help. Our purpose as advocates is to help those who are trying to do the right thing. His rescuer did not fail this dog. She was giving him a fighting chance. We scheduled a time to evaluate him and did a big dog / small dog test as well as a cat test. While tentative, he did just fine. The biggest hurdle was to see how he did with a strange human man. We had someone there to help knowing it may not go well but we wanted to try. Amazingly, Aiden walked right over to him, slowly of course, and sniffed his hand and gave us a slight tail wag. We knew then that he had huge potential and knew we had to intervene to make sure this pup had a chance at a happy life.

Now settled into foster care, Aiden is absolutely the perfect companion. He is 100% potty trained (no accidents at all!) and crate-trained. He LOVES the other dogs and nicely shares food, toys, treats, etc with zero issue. He loves playing with them and he also is super respectful of the resident cat. He is AMAZING on leash and walks so nicely next to you. He gets so wiggly when he knows he's going on a car ride and sits nicely in the passenger seat. This dog is the total package and coming in at only 45 lbs, he's the perfect medium size!

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.
