My story

Arabella A233390

Sex: Female
Age: 1.5 years
Arrived On: 9/27/21 as an Owner Surrender

Handling video: https://youtu.be/j1Hp_Newvhc
Leash Test: https://youtu.be/Zso3VXbBMT0

It doesn’t matter how many skin and bones dogs we see, it’s still gut wrenching each time. Worse are the surrenders that come in neglected. Someone knowingly let this level of neglect happen. We will never understand. Arabella is one of those dogs that breaks our hearts with her body condition. She’s understandably hungry and jumpy. She was easy enough to get leashed and outside. Once she got a whiff of our treat stash that is all she wanted. Her nails are razor sharp and seem like they’ve never been trimmed, but she doesn’t understand that they hurt and definitely isn’t trying to scratch us.

Arabella craves attention and allows handling all over. She even sits on command. We are going to work on getting her to a healthy weight while her future family works on finding her.

Why adoption is a great option

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