Matthew's Story...
Matthew is a very gentle and shy, two to three-year-old, 50-pound, male, fawn pit bull terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Matthew had been chained in a yard in Georgia until his rescue. So, everything in the world is new to him. Loud noises scare him, but he loves hanging out on a dog bed to chew his bones. He also enjoys other dogs – especially females, and his favorite playmate is his foster sister Pixie. He has not yet been cat-tested. Matthew is very submissive and would probably enjoy a quieter home with a patient dog-lover willing to work through his shyness. He’d be best with someone willing to continue his training. He is crate-trained and doing well with his housebreaking. Matthew is healthy, de-wormed, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. If you are interested in temporarily fostering or permanently adopting Matthew, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net to get a foster or adoption application emailed to you. His adoption donation of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog Rescue. He is being fostered in Chicago, Illinois.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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