Francesca's Story...
Meet Francesca!!

She is a lovable Mastiff / Pit Bull mix who is just over a year old and about 65-pounds, who is looking for a foster or forever home. This beautiful girl has had a really rough start in life, but that did not dampen her super happy spirit or change her love for people. Her tail never stops wagging and she simply LOVES people and attention.

She is a happy, healthy pup that enjoys the simple things in life; a walk in the park, playing with her toys, and snuggling on the couch. She is housebroken and knows basic commands (sit, stay, down, place) and is eager to learn and please. She is great with other dogs and loves kids. She is a playful girl so she may do best in a home with older kids or really dog savvy small children - only because she may knock them over with all of her affection. Even though she loves to play her favorite thing to do is lay on the couch next to you and watch TV.

If you are looking for somebody to bring humor, entertainment, love and affection into your home and life then look no further.

She is up to date on her age appropriate vaccinations, heartworm negative, worm and parasite free, spayed and microchipped.

She is being sponsored by Barriers Against Repeated Cruelty (BARC)
Medical expenses will be covered and food will be provided for foster homes.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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