Story
Jackie is truly a survivor with a will to live, and hopefully many years yet to enjoy. We learned of Jackie from a firefighter who had rescued her from her home, which had burned down. She survived but her owner did not. Jackie suffered only minimal effects from the fire, related to smoke inhalation. Upon her arrival at BAARK, Jackie received a full vet check. X-rays of her chest as well as her senior bloodwork. She does have a lingering cough that is being helped by medication. The coughing is probably due to throat irritation from the smoke. Jackie is a senior Pitbull, thought to be 12-14 years old, just under 60 lbs. With all that she’s been through….losing her home, her dad, and any family she’s known…..she has been doing well, taking everything in stride and adjusting well to her new life. She has quickly come out of her shell and is doing wonderfully with other dogs in her foster home. Typical of older, larger dogs, Jackie does have osteoarthritis and notable hip dysplasia. She has received her first injection of Librela, a new injectable medication for management of pain related to osteoarthritis. She also takes oral meds and she’s moving better already! Jackie is now ready to find her forever person/family. An ideal family for Jackie is one offering a calm, relaxing environment, able to ensure she receives the medication needed to address her osteoarthritis; she is doing so well on it. Jackie would also enjoy a secure, fenced yard, and possibly senior canine friend. Jackie is up to date on all vaccinations, spayed, microchipped. Her recent blood work looked great. She is housebroken too! If you might be interested in adding Jackie to your family, please contact BAARKDogRescue@gmail.com or 847-852-0895.

Story
Chato found himself at Chicago Animal Control, abandoned by the family he had been loyal to his entire life. He was in very bad shape and appeared to be very old due to the neglect he suffered. His skin was terribly infected and hope of ever finding love and happiness had been extinguished from his eyes. We could not let this cute Pocket Pittie die without knowing the kindness of a human touch or that every day does not need to be filled with fear and mistreatment. Once pulled from Animal Control, Chato knew instantly that he was safe and life would be better….and it sure was!! Chato’s medical needs were immediately addressed, his skin issues were resolved, and his spirit slowly returned. Today, Chato is a silly little pup, recovered from his past, and looking to continue to live the happy healthy life he so deserves…..with a family of his own. Chato is just 4-5 years old, and weighs about 35lbs…..tiny for a Pitbull! He is very playful and spirited, and loves being with people. He enjoys cuddling and definitely being petted too! He takes treats gently, and sits nicely for them. He is housebroken and is eager to please! Chato is sure to make a wonderful addition to any family worthy of him!! Chato walks nicely on a leash; he does not react when he sees other dogs out and about. However, Chato does need to be an only dog; he’s not fond of sharing his home with other four-legged creatures…dogs or cats!! An ideal home for Chato is with a family with significant Pitbull experience, but having no other dogs currently ; Chato absolutely deserves to receive all the attention for himself. He’d love a fenced yard and deserves a family willing to spend time with him and include him in all family activities. Chato may enjoy the company of older children but younger children may be too much for him. Chato is fully vetted, up-to-date on all vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative/on year-round heartworm prevention. A solid, verifiable vet history for all past pets is required for all adopters of BAARK Dogs. If you are interested in adding Chato to your family, please email BAARKDogRescue@gmail.com or call 847-852-0895 for an adoption application.

Story
Agnes is a very pretty, rather petite Pitbull who had a terrible life before she was rescued and taken to Chicago Animal Control. Once joining BAARK Dog Rescue, her life changed for the better; she would never suffer any abuse or neglect again. Agnes had been seen for several weeks, living in a junkyard, finding shelter under a porch and among the junk. Every once in a while she got out of the fenced area to scavenge the neighborhood for food, only to have kids throw rocks and bottles at her and try to hurt her. She was scared, alone, and starving. It took a couple of caring, compassionate rescuers a couple of weeks to capture her. She was brought to Chicago Animal Control, still very scared and totally withdrawn. We are grateful we at BAARK learned of Agnes and have been able to help her overcome such past neglect, abuse, and fear, and she’s now ready to move along to her forever home. Agnes is estimated to be 6 years old. She weighs 39 lbs. An ideal home for Agnes is with a family having Pitbull breed experience, able to provide Agnes the attention, care, and compassion she deserves, without her having to share it with other canine family members. That is, she’d do best as an only dog. She is not good with cats. Agnes would love a nice, safe and secure back yard of her own. A solid, verifiable vet history for all current and past pets is required for all adopters of BAARK Dogs. Agnes is fully vetted, up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped as well as heartworm negative and on year-round heartworm preventative. If you are interested in adding Agnes to your family, please contact BAARKDogRescue@gmail.com or 847-852-0895

Story
Birdie is as sweet and loving as her name might suggest. She’s a senior Pocket Pittie, estimated to be 8 – 10 years old. When Birdie joined BAARK’s Safe House this last year, it was very clear that she had spent those past years in a terribly neglectful, possibly abusive, situation. She was horribly skinny, had a terrible skin infection, and a significant mass (which was removed and determined to be benign). Birdie is a gentle, laid back girl. She loves everyone and everyone who has met her has immediately fallen in love with her. Overall Birdie is an “easy” pup but she can get nervous around other dogs. We suspect this relates to a bad experience in her past. An ideal family for Birdie is one with prior Pitbull experience, a home in which she can be the only dog, receiving all the attention!! However Birdie may be fine with a laid-back senior male, who will not challenge her or compete with her for treats and food. Birdie’s exposure to children has been limited but she really enjoys being around older children. She enjoys being outside, car rides, naps, and being with her people. Birdie is fully vetted, up-to-date on vaccinations, is heartworm negative and on year-round prevention, spayed, and microchipped. If you would like to add Birdie to your family, please contact BAARKDogRescue@org or 847-852-0895. Birdie is located in the Chicago suburbs. We adopt our dogs only locally.

Story
Hi, I am sadly giving up my angel Paisley. She is the best girl any dog lover could ever ask for. I’ve had her since my 4 year old was born and she’s the most gentle girl I’ve ever met. She is a cuddler and a little bit of couch potato but still loves to have fun. I am hoping she goes to someone who has a dog already. She has the most goofiest and silliest personality, as most Bull Terrier’s do. She absolutely would love a friend to play with. She is potty trained, can sit, paw, lay down. She’s great on a leash, but is a jumper - only to say hello. She will be 6 on April 1st. Any questions please ask. Adoption Fee is negotiable, but required to know she is going to a good home. Please, I highly doubt at all, but if any issues please return her back as I need to ensure she is going to a FOREVER home. *She does have allergies as do most BT’s, I will provide her special shampoo that does the trick. It’s inexpensive. Willing to meet. <3

Story
Our beloved dog, Bella, entered our lives in 2019, when my husband rescued her. Although her exact age remains a mystery, we estimate that she is around 4 years old. Every April 4th, we celebrate her birthday. With four older children and a baby, Bella has proven to be an incredible companion, especially with our little ones. However, as we adjust to the demands of a new baby, we find ourselves unable to devote as much time to Bella as she deserves. Bella has had her fair share of challenges, having experienced anxiety prior to her rescue. Therefore, she craves love, attention, and a spacious yard where she can freely stretch her legs. Our ultimate goal is to find Bella a new home that will shower her with the same amount of love and care that we have for her. While she thrives in the presence of children, she may not be the best fit for households with other dogs. Bella’s loyalty to her family is unmatched, and she adores snuggles. We want her to find a loving home with attention.
