Frankie's Story...
Frankie is the sweetest most loving pitbull mix I have ever come across. She is now 3 years old, about 45 pounds and fully trained and housebroken. She can sit, stay, give paw, lay down and bark when you ask her to say please for a treat!!! She also knows how to sit and wait patiently for her meal or treat when you tell her off. All you have to say is ok to let her know it is alright to take the treat or food. Frankie is AMAZING with every person, child and baby she has ever met! She loves when new visitors come to the house so she can make a new friend. she lives with a 2 month old baby and Frankie protects him by laying in front of his bedroom door at nighttime. She knows that she must be extra gentle with him and gives him tiny, sweet doggie kisses when she is told it is ok. She can be trust her with EVERY person she comes in contact with. Frankie also thinks she is a lap dog. If you allow it, she absolutely LOVES to climb onto the couch and snuggle with you. (Although if you do not tell her it is ok, then she will be obedient and stay on her doggie bed.) For a special treat she is allowed to sleep in bed once in a while this is her absolute heaven!!! She thinks she is just another person and tries to lay right up against you under the blankets with her head on the pillow. Frankie has a lot of energy when you want to bring out that side of her, otherwise she is completely happy just relaxing. She loves to play catch and is very good on a leash she knows how to heal and has had a full of week of board and train schooling where she learned some of these commands. She loves long walks and can also go jogging with someone who needs a running partner. She has a lot of stamina! The best part about Frankie is how versatile she is. She can play and jump around one minute, and then next minute that you need her to settle down all you have to do is ask. Just be firm with her and she will listen obediently. All she wants to do is please you!!! Unfortunately here owners recently divorced and Frankie needs a new home. Frankie needs to be adopted by a family with no other pets she just LOVES people! Please give this sweetheart a loving home!!!!We are a small group of caring volunteers, and a home visit is requirement of adoption, therefore local adoptions only please ( within 50 miles of Naperville / Chicago ) Please call Amanda for more info ~630-640-2047

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lombard 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 Lombard 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 breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lombard paves the way for another one to be saved.
