Story
Meet Niko, the vibrant 8-month-old Pit Bull with a heart full of joy and energy to spare! Weighing in at a solid 54 pounds, Niko is a bundle of fun and love waiting to find his forever home. Niko has mastered the art of being both house and crate trained, proving he's a smart cookie ready to learn even more. However, he's had a bit of a rocky start in life and is in need of guidance and plenty of love. Despite his age, Niko still exhibits puppy-like behaviors, especially in his boundless energy and eagerness for play. One thing to note about Niko is his exuberant personality. He's the life of the party, always eager to meet new people and make friends. However, his enthusiasm can sometimes get the best of him, leading to some rough play and overexcitement. He's a social butterfly when it comes to other dogs, but he may need some help in understanding their cues and playing more gently. While Niko may need a bit of refinement in his manners, he's a quick learner and would thrive in obedience classes where he can channel his energy into positive behaviors. With consistent training and plenty of exercise, Niko is sure to blossom into a well-behaved companion. For potential adopters with other pets, Niko's rough play style might need careful consideration. While he gets along well with cats, his boisterous nature might be overwhelming for other dogs. A patient and equally energetic canine companion would be the perfect match for Niko. Due to his exuberance and tendency for rough play, we recommend a home with children over the age of 12 who are familiar with dogs. Niko loves nothing more than playtime with his favorite toys, a game of fetch in the yard, or a leisurely car ride to explore the world around him. Speaking of yards, Niko would thrive in a home with a fenced yard where he can burn off his energy to his heart's content. His foster dad describes him as a sweet boy who's eager to please, and he's certainly a hit with everyone he meets – including college students when he joins his foster dad's class! If you're ready for a lifetime of love, laughter, and adventure with a furry friend who's always up for fun, then Niko might just be the perfect match for you. Come meet this charming Pit Bull with a zest for life and see if you're meant to be his forever family! His minimum adoption fee is $195 plus a $15 fee, if 4 months or older, for rabies registration for McLean County residents. He has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm checked, dewormed, and is on flea and heartworm preventatives.

Story
Introducing Frankfort, the cutest 9-month-old Pit bull mix that weighs 37.1 pounds! Frankfort is on his way to mastering the art of housetraining and excels in his crate like a true champ. But don't let his missing eye fool you – this young lad's energy levels are through the roof! He's a bundle of joy who thrives on plenty of mental and physical activity, making a fenced yard the ideal playground for his spirited adventures. With his boundless enthusiasm and penchant for play, Frankfort is a natural-born goofball who's sure to bring endless love and laughter into your home. From games of fetch to joyrides in the car, he's up for any adventure that comes his way. Plus, he's a cuddle bug at heart, always ready to snuggle up with his favorite humans after a day of play. While Frankfort's energy and jumpiness may not be suited for very young children, he'll thrive in a household with kids ages 6 and up who can match his spirited nature with a bit of balance. And as much as he loves to play, Frankfort may not be the best match for feline friends due to his rough play style. According to his foster mom, Frankfort is a cyclone of chaos in the best way possible – a true testament to his playful spirit and boundless love. While he's still learning the ropes of polite play with other dogs, he's making great strides and would benefit from continued puppy training and socialization. If you're searching for a furry companion to keep you on your toes and fill your home with love and laughter, look no further than Frankfort. Come meet him today and discover why he's the perfect addition to your family! His minimum adoption fee is $195 plus a $15 fee, if 4 months or older, for rabies registration for McLean County residents. He has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm checked, dewormed, and is on flea and heartworm preventatives.

Story
Meet Milo! He's a seven-month-old Pit Bull Terrier who currently weighs 53 pounds. This playful sweetie would love a home with a canine playmate, yet it's not required. Although Milo grew up with young children, he might do best with children age 5+ because he's blessed with the typical big puppy high energy level. He's house- and crate-trained. You'll quickly discover that Milo is a well-rounded boy. His hobbies include: * Running around in the house * Spending time in the yard * Going on long walks * Engaging in high-energy exercise * Playing with toys * Playing with other dogs   Milo follows his foster dad from room to room. His previous family didn't have enough time for him, so he didn't get much interaction. It might take Milo a minute to warm up to new people and situations. He just wants to be loved. Can you give Milo the exercise and love that he needs? If so, he'd love to meet you! His minimum adoption fee is $195 plus a $15 fee, if 4 months or older, for rabies registration for McLean County residents.  He has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm checked, dewormed, and is on flea and heartworm preventatives.

Story
Meet Millie, a 2-year-old Pit Bull Mix, gracing the world with her presence at a weight of 44.8 pounds. Her journey hasn't been easy; she came into our lives through a stroke of fate, found abandoned in a park one summer, emaciated and neglected. Due to her challenging past, Millie requires a kid-free home, where she can gradually build trust and feel secure. In the loving embrace of her foster family, Millie has truly transformed. She's become an exuberant, playful, and affectionate companion who enjoys the simple pleasures of life. Whether it's embarking on leisurely strolls, indulging in a game of fetch in the backyard, or sharing a quiet moment on your lap, Millie is a dog who knows how to savor every moment. Not only is Millie house and crate-trained, but she also coexists harmoniously with feline friends. However, it's essential to note that Millie thrives as the sole dog in the household, as she tends to resource-guard her food and toys. To provide Millie with the ideal forever home, we're seeking a patient and nurturing owner who can offer plenty of activities to engage her both physically and mentally. Millie's foster mom has mentioned that she may vocalize when her active needs aren't met, a friendly reminder that this spirited pup is happiest when she's well-exercised. Once Millie establishes that special bond with someone, she becomes a beacon of happiness and loyalty. Thanks to our generous sponsors, her adoption fee has already been covered for an approved adopter. Please note there is a $15 rabies registration fee for McLean County residents.  Millie is waiting for a loving home where her heart can continue to bloom. If you think you could be that special person, apply today to meet her and start a beautiful chapter together. She has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm checked, dewormed, and is on flea and heartworm preventatives.

Chanel is a 3-year-old, spayed female American Pit Bull Terrier mix available for adoption at CCHS. Chanel is a sweet, affectionate girl who is also an exceptional beauty with bicolored eyes. Chanel loves people and is always excited to make new friends! Chanel would prefer a home with no kitties, and kitties would probably prefer a home with no Chanel, as she has a history of chasing them. If you have a cat-free home that needs a dog of great beauty, Chanel is definitely the way to go! Come meet and apply for this great girl at CCHS!
