Facts about Tonka

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
*We will only adopt within a 60 mile radius of Chicago, IL*

Tonka came in extremely emaciated, obviously had been abused but he's so very sweet. He needs a gentle owner that will help him understand that he will never be hurt again. He loves attention and would love a forever home to call his own. He's approximately 5 years old and his medical care had generously been sponsored by Mark and Jamie Buehrle of the White Sox (huge thank you for helping to save his life!) Adoption fee $295/training required.

*Obedience training is mandatory for all dogs adopted from our rescue. The choice of trainer is up to the adopter, unless otherwise noted in the bio. We do require an obedience deposit check in the amount of $200.00 at the time of adoption.

This is a refundable deposit. The check is stapled to the adoption contract and held in a file until we receive proof of completion for your training program.

The check will not be cashed if you complete training and provide us with proof, at which time the check is mailed back to you. The check will only be cashed if you do not complete training! *
