Hot Shot's Story...
Hot Shot is a wonderful, strong, handsome, energetic and sweet, one-year-old, 64-pound, black and white pit bull looking for a loving home. Picked up as a stray in Gary, Indiana, it’s obvious that poor Hot Shot was used as a bait dog for fighters. But, this big muscular sweetheart is a lover, not a fighter. He has no formal training in commands yet, but he takes treats gently from your fingers. And, when you walk him through a room full of dogs, he is not at all reactive. He is a confident, happy, tail waggingly-friendly boy who would do well with someone willing to put the time and energy into him to make him the model canine citizen. He would do fine with older children as well, and he plays well with some dogs at the kennel he’s being boarded at. Hot Shot is healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies, distemper, and bordatella vaccines, micro-chipped, and heartworm-tested. To meet and possibly adopt Hot Shot, please contact Sue at recsvcspecinc@sbcglobal.net or 815-268-4164. Hot Shot’s adoption fee of $150 benefits rescued dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hot Shot, a Chicago American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Chicago, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire 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 American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
