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

Birdie

Pit Bull Terrier Mixed Breed (Medium)

Male, 10 yrs 3 mos

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
Meet Lady Lady is a sweet senior Pittie Mix thought to be about 10 years old. She’s a smaller girl, about 45 lbs. Sadly, Lady is losing her home and her family of 8 years. Her family is moving but she is not moving with them. Lady is a sweet and very cuddly girl. She loves people and will follow her person around like a shadow. She loves walks, cuddling, treats, and being with her special person as much as possible. She does well with other dogs, and has lived with a cat in the past. She is overly interested in small outdoor animals like squirrels and chipmunks, so her new family must either try to avoid such encounters or be prepared for her to bring such trophies to the door! Lady is fine when home alone, and does not need to be crated. She is well behaved and she is housebroken too. Lady is up to date on vaccinations, is heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, is spayed and microchipped. If you’d like to open your heart and home to this precious senior, please contact BAARKDogRescue@gmail.com or 815-997-9045.

Story
I adopted Henry December 15, 2023. He was found on the south side of Chicago. He had no collar, no microchip. The police called me and asked if I could help with him. He was extremely malnourished, and was going to be euthanized. He only weighed 47 pounds when they brought him to me. He currently weighs about 73 lbs. He is extremely loving with all people,. and other dogs, and young puppies. I breed labradors and labradoodles, and he plays with my puppies all the tiime. My goal was to get him healthy again, and then re home him. I did a complete DNA test on him, and he is a very healthy dog, clear of all genetic conditions. I am guessing he is about 4/5 years old. He is an extremely intelligent dog. I'm looking for a loving home for Henry.
