Sweet Pea's Story...
Sweet Pea is a mellow yet playful three-year-old, 55-pound, female brindle and white pit bull looking for a loving guardian. Sweet Pea is very affectionate and enjoys giving her favorite people kisses. Her tail is always wagging and she loves to play with other dogs - especially her foster brother a rottie/lab-mix. She also likes to hang out at home and play with her squeaky toys. She’s a laid-back cuddly girl who loves to snuggle. She’s a loyal dog who bonds tightly with those she loves and trusts. She is well-trained, housebroken, crate-trained, and knows the commands sit, down, come, and takes treats gently from your fingers. Sweet Pea landed at Chicago Animal Care and Control weighing a skeletal 35 pounds, and had her nine puppies in tow. She was lucky to find a foster home in which to raise her babies. She was a wonderful mom, and all her pups found homes; now it’s her turn. To see a video of Sweet Pea in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hj3qjEdNN7s
Sweet Pea is cautious at first in new situations and with new people. But, within minutes, she warms up and is quite trusting. She is looking for a patient dog-lover who will continue her training and be worthy of her trust. She is extremely healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested, micro-chipped and de-wormed. Her adoption fee of $95 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control Rescue Group. To meet and possibly adopt her, contact Laura at laura.torphy@dearborntower.net or 312-328-1399.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sweet Pea, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a American 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 American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
