Story
Congratulations! You've found the bio for the world's friendliest and snuggliest dog ever! Harvest was rescued in July 2023 from a cruelty case in a "home" of 20+ dogs and her own 3-week old puppies, since weaning them off when they were ready, Harvest has been living her best life and has not looked back! Harvest is a mostly black pittie with white paws, white tipped tail and a blaze of white on her chest and face along with some freckles and beautiful golden brown eyes. Harvest is an independent pup who mostly ignores other dogs when off leash in dog friendly areas. Harvest is very non-reactive and enjoys focusing on her tennis ball. On leash, she is more dog selective and will vocalize her displeasure quickly, so it's important to know her boundaries. Harvest will make her opinions known and get bossy with younger dogs. Harvest is a medium energy pup. She loves to walk and play! She's very athletic and would do well with an active owner. Loves sniff walks and squirrel hunting. Absolutely loves the beach or a dog friendly area where she can be off leash playing keep away and fetch. She is also a big cuddle bug and will give you the warmest hug you've ever had, accompanied by thousands of kisses. Harvest is just a really good girl. She is a very happy-go-lucky pup who rolls with whatever comes her way. Harvest is one of the most affectionate, friendly, funny, listens, and is very cued in on her handler. Harvest is just eager to please. She is smart and will settle quickly if attempts at play are not reciprocated. You really just have to meet her and you will fall in love. Don't waste any time, every second you're not with Harvest is a moment you could be having the best hug you've ever had. Looking for a playful cuddle bug to complete your home?

Story
🍉Watermelon is our Midnight Sun. She shines so Bright in the darkest places. 🍉Watermelon is probably the sweetest snuggle buddy of the group! Watermelon’s love for humans is boundless; she’s the epitome of affection and adores being close to her favorite people. Whether sharing chairs or seeking out laps for cozy naps, Watermelon’s love for humans is big. Unlike some dogs, 🍉Watermelon isn’t particularly interested in toys or high-energy play; she thrives on quiet moments and companionship. Walking with her is a pleasure; she’s excellent on the leash and takes care of business right away. Even in her kennel, she remains calm and composed, often curled up on a blanket. 🍉Watermelon’s compact size and gentle demeanor make her a great fit for many homes. While she’s content to ignore other dogs on leash at a distance and has enjoyed some very sweet moments with her male family members, she wants to be the only furry friend. We hope this doesn’t overshadow her potential becuase Watermelon’s loving nature and companionship are so wonderful! Please SHARE this lovable face with others. 🍉Watermelon will cherish every moment by your side and will undoubtedly be the happiest face greeting you when you come home. She deserves to be someone’s whole world! 👀 Watch until the end: - if personal space is important to you, she isn’t your dog. - if you hate being loved, 🍉Watermelon also isn’t the dog for you.

Story
Introducing the next resilient member of the #Resilient23 cruelty case crew: Jicama! Jicama is a delightful 2-year-old pup boasting the most adorable black and white markings – resembling a living, breathing mini panda! Initially reserved compared to his siblings, our little Jicama blossoms with warmth and affection once he gets to know you. Beneath his adorable exterior lies a clever mind, evident in his mastery of commands like "sit" and his gentle demeanor when taking treats. But where Jicama truly shines is his passion for fetch, he has a natural talent for the game, displaying endless joy with every toss of the ball. It's a remarkable sight to watch him play, considering he never experienced the simple joys of playing outdoors. Post-fetch, he eagerly seeks cozy companionship, enjoying gentle snuggles and his signature standing hugs that capture the essence of his endearing nature. While generally more laid-back, Jicama's passion for fetch is boundless, making a backyard paradise the ultimate dream come true for this fetch enthusiast! Jicama has done well during introductions with female dogs and could thrive alongside other canine companions with proper introductions. However, he's just as content being the star of the show, soaking up all the love and attention. In three words, Jicama can be described as sweet, fetchaholic, and smart – a perfect blend of charm and intelligence wrapped in a furry package.

Story
Our boy Cucumber is like a delish golden graham cracker – chunky pit bod married with an adorable worried face that makes him irresistible! He’s approximately four years old and about 60lbs, but has been a great leash walker and never mouthy with treats or his toys. Despite coming from a home with 22 other dogs in deplorable conditions and being kept in a cage far too small for him, he has maintained a positive outlook and exudes best friend vibes every day. The ideal family for Cucumber would be active yet enjoy relaxing evenings together on the couch. A yard would be a bonus as Cucumber has discovered the joy of toys and balls for the first time in his life, especially those with ropes. He loves to play for hours and then splonk up next to you while you unwind with a good book. Cucumber would do best in a home with older kids and has shown his gentle nature side to CACC volunteers. He has also made some female dog friends in playgroup and does well with proper introductions. In three words, Cucumber can be described as best bud material. We hope you see this happy boy the way we do and consider giving him a chance so you too can experience the joy and love he has to offer. Looking for a playful cuddle bug to complete your home?

Story
Brussel Sprout aka Brussel is a youthful, energetic pittie, whose big, white head and big, grey eyes will bulldoze his way into your heart. Brussel was a rescued from a bad home life and spent many months at animal control. Despite this, his zest for life has no bounds. He is cautious of new things, people, and sounds. But with some encouragement, he quickly warms up. Brussel is curious about new dogs, and we believe with proper introductions, he would be a great playmate. Brussel is cautious about new people, and generally warms up to them. He can get nervous about loud sounds or unexpected sounds, so he should be monitored around all kids and would do well with some training! Brussel has quick bouts of energy after naps and eating, but is then great with snoozing for several hours throughout the day. He would be great for a family that enjoys leisurely walks with some play thrown in but also likes lazy days to cuddle on the couch. Brussel is a smart cookie and knows "sit" and "crate/house". Brussel Sprouts will win you over with his joyous love that he gives you unconditionally. He will be a great companion to someone one day. Brussel Sprouts, despite his past, is excellent on leash. He doesn't pull, he walks with or right ahead of you. He is also great in the car and will spread out and snooze. Three words to describe Brussel? Playful, snuggly, and cautious!

Story
Meet Cantaloupe! Cantaloupe is currently a resident at Chicago Animal Care & Control and is looking for a foster home! Cantaloupe was rescued from a cruelty case among over twenty other dogs. Despite her challenging past, she is nothing but love! Have you ever thought of the definition of joyful? We think it might be a beautiful tan and white dreamboat pit mix named Cantaloupe. Cantaloupe is an adorable girl who is at the great age of about a year and half – past the puppy crazies and ready to learn and be a very loved family member. She came from a confiscation with 22 other dogs where she never got the home she deserved from the beginning, but she has brought nothing but sunshine with her to the shelter and loves everything about her human friends! Cantaloupe would do well with a family who is ready to show her the ropes – she would like to be with you and involved in your life so would do best in a home where someone is around much of the time. She’s a great petite size of about 45lbs, and she absolutely loves to sit with you in your chair or spot and get snuggles, and is starting to play independently and discover some toys are really fun! Despite having been in the shelter for months, she is such a positive spirit. Cantaloupe has been tested with some other dogs and while she loves her littermate brother, Brussel Sprouts, she has shown us that she’d rather be your one and only in a home. She’s not reactive on leash and is easy to walk. Every experience outside is one of curiosity, wonder, and excitement to see people, toys and treats! Three words to describe Cantaloupe: snuggly, sweet and delicious! We would love to see her get the home this little princess deserves and get on with her life.
