Bo's Story...
One of our volunteers witnessed a puppy dart into the street, get hit and rolled under a van, and left there for dead. The van took off and our volunteer ran into the street to save him. He had no collar or chip, so we shared his image all over the internet. We posted pictures, stories from here to craigslist, at the city pound and on light posts. We tried and tried to find his people-and couldn't. So, today, we are becoming his people. Check out this video of Bo's ordeal and amazing recovery: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151520673040095

When Bo was struck by a van and then left, he was dazed and injured. For the first few days, he could not walk on his front legs. We feared it was irreparable nerve damage. Bo has made an amazing recovery, and is back to walking almost perfectly, and should be back to normal soon. Bo has had quite an adventure-there were scary patches and sunny patches and his travels are not yet completed. Now he needs a forever family!

He is still so much a puppy at 9 months that he wants to play with others but also loves a good snuggle on the couch. He is great in the house - housebroken, quiet, non-destructive, and a great student for training. He can be vocal when meeting other dogs, but he just wants to play and needs to learn how to politely introduce himself to dogs. He loooooves people and is so sweet. Even when he was in pain post-accident, the vet and everyone who met him commented on his amazing disposition and zest for life.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bo, 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.
