Facts about Sonny

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: White - With Gray Or Silver
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Sonny is a charismatic pit mix whose floppy ears will melt your heart. Sonny's previous owners said he may have been mixed with great dane - so Sonny may be a large dog in his future but for right now this 5 month old is just enjoying life ever since he beat parvo! Yep you read that right. When Sonny was 3 months old he was surrendered to animal control because he was sick and it turned out he had parvo which is when we decided we did not want that to be a death sentence for this amazing little dog. He was hospitalized for only a few days because his body responded so well to the treatment and he is now free and clear of that preventable disease!

Sonny wants to play with every dog he meets, but he is still learning that some dogs are not always in a playful mood. Sonny gets along with his foster cats and he's quickly learning his boundaries with them. This little pup enjoys car rides and like most puppies, Sonny doesn't like to sit in one spot for long. A pet barrier or seat belt harness keeps him from trying to take the wheel. He would love an active family who has the time to continue training him to be the best dog ever.

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.
