My story

Rollo A233328

Male - 3 years old
Came in 9/26/21 as an Owner Surrender

Handling 11/25: https://youtu.be/0Nb4hGL9F2g

Too many dogs come in neglected but each one is heartbreaking nonetheless. Rollo is so skinny his hip bones protrude and his head is sunken in. He looks like he lived in a confined space too small for his growing body. His legs don’t fully extend and he walks a bit hunched over. Rollo had one thing on his mind, treats and we were happy to give him everything we had. He could use a spa day and nail trim. Rollo jumps for attention but he also sits on command. His nails are sharp but he’s a pretty sweet boy.

Rollo allowed handling all over and leaned his whole body against ours when we pet him. We are going to work on getting Rollo to a healthy weight and try to curb some of his jumping. Rollo is still very young and needs a family dedicated to his mental and physical health (training and exercise). He’s not had a great start to life, imagine how happy he will be experiencing the small wonders of life.

Why adoption is a great option

Rollo, 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.
