My story

Fiona A231979

Sex: Female
Age: 4 years
Arrived On: 8/28/21 as a Stray

Handling 10/17: https://youtu.be/cuG3YFXa14s
Handling 9/16: https://youtu.be/Uqi_llNtYPk
Handling video: https://youtu.be/w_hKS3cWkIk
Leash Test: https://youtu.be/kd-QArUxyVg

Fiona was searching so much for her people the day she came in, but still no one has come looking for her. She was pretty scared coming out of her kennel her first day too. Overwhelmed by the noise around her, Fiona had normal reactions to the shelter environment. It only took one day for it to sink in and now she can’t wait to leave when she sees a volunteer approach with the leash.

Fiona seems to have stage fright with the camera but she’s very sweet even if she doesn’t want it recorded. She allows handling all over and leans in for pets. Fiona hasn’t shown us any knowledge of commands and isn’t motivated by toys or treats so far. We don’t think Fiona’s family is coming for her so we need to find her someone new to love.

Why adoption is a great option

Fiona, a Chicago Pit Bull Terrier/Mixed Breed (Large) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier/Mixed Breed (Large) for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier/Mixed Breed (Large) 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/Mixed Breed (Large) breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier/Mixed Breed (Large) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
