Mick's Story...
Mick is in a foster-to-adopt situation!



Meet Mick, NLOL Chicago's VERY sweet and incredibly handsome blue pit bull. This dog is the perfect package. Not only is he quite gorgeous, but he also has the disposition to match. This dog is about as close to perfect as a pit bull can get. He's wonderful with people and to add to that incredibly playful with dogs.


Mick was part of our most recent intake group from CACC. While our intake directors were walking through the rescue pavilion they came across this striking dog. Mick was given up that day by his previous family. The reason being, their kids did not have time for him (what a shame). We crossed fingers and toes, hoping that this wonderful dog would pass our temperament test and he did with flying colors. He was fantastic! We quickly whisked him away and happily made him an official member of the NLOL Chicago dog crew. Everyone who meets this boy falls madly in love. He's become a volunteer favorite and also a staff favorite at the partner boarding facility where he is staying until he finds a foster or forever home.


This sweet boy will need a home devoted to making him the best breed ambassador he can be. Mick is very food driven and will be a star in obedience training. He knows very limited commands, but is a smart dude and will catch on to training incredibly fast. We cannot guarantee that Mick is housebroken, but he keeps a clean crate and chances are since he lived in a home he is. Mick has been cat-tested and he thought the cat would be a tasty snack, so no kitties for this big blue boy please.


If you are interested in meeting this big handsome man, please contact us today. We promise you will immediately fall head over heels!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago 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 Chicago 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 Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
