I’m waiting patiently for my forever family.
Hey there, I'm Polly Pocket! I might as well be called Pocket Burrito though because I love rolling myself up into a blanket and snuggling with my foster mom. However, I think I'm the perfect mix of a playful girl and super cuddly and I am young at around three years old. I won't turn down a romp in the backyard, a long walk, or a play session with toys but I am always down for a snuggle at the end of the day. Once I am properly introduced to other dog(s) I have so much fun running and playing with them.
I am mastering my commands and house manners with the help of my foster mom working with me. I am great in the car and stay in whatever seat I am put in. I’m great in my crate at night or when my foster mom is away and I keep my crate dry too.
I would love to meet my forever family soon, so head over to www.pittiepleaserescue.org to fill out an adoption application!
Hi everyone! My names Pongo! I was another special rescue for PPR because I was about to be euthanized and PPR stepped in and saved me! What a lucky boy I am and my future forever family I know is just waiting for me!
I'm a ten month old pup and I'm deaf. But that doesn't stop me from learning and thriving! My foster family uses hand signs to signal what they want me to do and I've picked up on those really quickly! I'm pretty smart! I also love to play with other dogs! I'm dog friendly and doing great on my potty training and crate training!
If you think I'm as special as the PPR crew says I am head over to www.pittiepleaserescue.org to apply! I can't wait to meet you!
RIP SWEET GIRL. YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.
I was pulled on Chicago Rescue Day and PPR decided my name would be Rachel Green from the sitcom Friends and I loved it. I think I look like a “Rachel” and after being pulled from the small kennel I was in I was given a new chance to find a forever family. I’m a super happy girl and pretty low key. I am a typical Cane Corso so I am very protective of my family and space so I would want to share my life with a family that is experienced with a larger breed and is used to my unique qualities. I am a youngster female about 3 years old and I’ll tell you I can still break out the zoomies in the yard and my foster mom says I’m super agile. I know what sit, down and stay means and I will gladly give you my big paw if asked. I did play with my foster doggie siblings but I think I would need to be the only dog in the home unless you are well versed in our dog to dog communication and find the right fit of a dog not all up in my grill. And I am pretty good with older children. I plan to be your protector, best friend and give you so much love. Just venture back up to the top of the page and fill out an application to adopt me.
My foster mom says I am funny, clumsy and have a big personality. My name is Tiny Tim and I a young boy about 11/12 months old and although I don’t look like every other dog because I have a club foot and my other foot is somewhat deformed I can get around fine and I am a super cuddler. I just melt on my humans and I love to nuzzle my head under any arm or leg just to feel safe. I know some basic commands, but I’m working on others too. I am feeling better since I was super sick so I am just starting to play with the kids and fur sibling in my foster home. I am great with kids and I am good with my fur sibling but need to work on sharing and not wanting everything for myself. I am crate trained and right now I’m working on finishing up with housetraining. I still need a little help with learning to ask to go outside. But I sure am ready to begin my new life with you, and you know who you are because you’re going to fill out an app so you can meet me in person and we can begin our journey as a family soon.
If you watch Real Housewives you will know I am named after a beautiful, sassy and unique person. That rolls me into my new name Sassi and my new savior who has given me a chance at life - PPR. Here I am looking for my home to call forever and always so here it goes since my name sake is right to the point. I am a two year old gorgeous, blondie who needs a family to treat me the way I need to be treated. Actually, between you and me I’m looking for a nice home to lay my head down and begin my new life as a sweet and gentle girl who needs affection and lots of love. I am housetrained but I do have the occasional accident but I am working on that. I go right in my crate when it’s time and my foster mom says I am the SWEETEST GIRL, that I melt into her lap and I give plenty of affectionate - includes many kisses and cuddles. I love to play with my foster pup who is energetic and loves to play too. I do need help with walking on a leash a little because I tend to get excited and pull a little but I am so eager to please with treats and I am so food motivated I will have this walking down right by your side in no time. My foster mom also said I have a funny and sweet personality and my eyes and ears are the most expressive she has ever seen. But because of being hit by a car, I lean a little but that adds to my unique personality and that doesn’t get me down! I adore stuffed toys, but they don't last long and that’s the fun part of toys! I can eat peanut butter 24/7 out of my Kong and I do like the snow and just enjoying life! My foster family has given me a chance to find my family that I know is out there just waiting so if you are them go up and fill out an app. I am waiting and listening for that call to send me home xoxo Sassi
The name Queenie was bestowed upon me by the founder of PPR because she thinks I am the Queen B of the PPR pack. I believe she wants me to feel like royalty because of the way I entered the shelter.
I was a stray on the streets roaming forever and so scared, with an awful retractable leash still attached to me. My fur was the longest and most matted but after I was shaved down I was transformed into this adorable 7 lb., 7 year old tiny female Shih Tzu.
At the shelter I was terrified and did not do well when evaluated because I snapped often while guarding my resources (food, bed, etc.) I heard my future looked grim and that I may not make it out alive. My savior in this was the founder of PPR who I had met a few days prior. She said I was destined to be part of PPR and after a few days I found myself on my freedom ride.
I’m trying my best to be a good girl and my foster mom said I’m making improvements every day as she continues to work on socialization with me. I’m so close to my foster mom but I still bark at new people entering the house. Best of all, once I was no longer frightened in the shelter we discovered I do not have issues guarding food…well, just don’t take my bones away and we’ll be cool;)
I also take treats gently, I like big and small dogs but I do prefer my fellow littles. Big dogs just get my feathers, errr fur, ruffled sometimes! Don’t worry though, I still like to keep my big foster siblings in line if they get too crazy. I like my crate and I go outside to take care of business, but I also love to lounge in my bed (or foster mom’s bed) all day. I’m looking for that special someone to give me a life full of love, understanding and patience. I also would prefer a quieter house; no children please. If you’re interested in royalty, please go to the top of the page and fill out an app!
Look at my baby blues! I am a handsome 1 ½ years old Siberian Husky named Neo looking to find that one family who will love me and want me to snuggle up against them forever and always. I was given up with my sister Trinity because my last family came into money problems and could no longer care for us. Since I miss my sister, my one big wish is that my forever home has another dog to share my days and nights with so I am never lonely. I am a great snuggler but since I am still a young boy I need lots of play time and I love the outdoors. I would like a yard to run for hours in or I can take my nice long walks with you and I can show you how good I walk on a leash. I am potty trained and I am in the process of trying to stay in my crate. Crate training is something new for me since I never was in a crate before so I need time to figure out how to relax and enjoy this crate deal. I even enjoy people of all sizes, even the small kind. So I am ready and willing to meet you and give you a few kisses to prove it, so go to the top of the page and fill out an application for me.
On MLK Day I found myself surrendered to the shelter due to landlord issues but I didn’t have to wait very long before I became part of the PPR pack. My name is Martin or as my foster mom calls me Marty, I am 5 years old, house trained and just a bundle of love. I seek comfort in humans and I am a bit of a delicate guy but handsome as ever. I would do best with older kids because I need my space. I was with a bunch of fur friends before I made it to my foster mom’s house and the pack life was a little overwhelming but with the right fit for a fur sibling it might be ok. We are not sure how I am with cats. I love snuggling in my bed and I am now just waiting to take the jump into my forever family’s arms so go and apply and lets get things rolling.
I am the mom of the Great Eight and since they have found their forever homes I am looking for mine. I was pregnant in the south side intake only shelter with my babes when I was rescued and I was the best mom ever. My name is Shelby and I am about 3 years old and sweet as can be. I love my foster home and the kids there adore me. I get along with the dog siblings and I'm ok with the cat who is pretty dog savvy. I am housetrained and know basic commands. If you are looking for a mama who would be the best companion and forever love of your life I am your gal. You need to start by going to the top and filling out an application.
I have the perfect name that describes me – Lady. I am approximately 2 years old and I was rescued from the shelter when I was pregnant and within days of delivering. My foster mom said I am the best momma to all my puppies! I actually helped mother another orphaned group of puppies so that shows you how sweet and easy going I am. I am house broken, and currently I am not crated, so I have free access to my puppies, but they think I was crate trained at some point. My foster mom said that I have blended seamlessly into my foster home pack- living with five other resident dogs and various fosters. I am an expert snuggler, and have a wonderful playful side as well. I would do well with pretty much any kind of family dynamics – low key to very active. I am very well behaved and I know several basic commands. I’m great with kids too. You will fall in love with me at first sight – I promise. Please scroll up and fill out an application.
Ziggy is my name and I think it is a perfect fit for my goofy personality. I am a boy about a year old and they think I may be a mix of Great Dane but either way all I know is I love to cuddle and I don’t know my own size because I love human laps to sit on. I am gentle and I walk pretty good on a leash but I still need training after all I am just a big ole’ puppy. I am house trained and I am learning from my foster sibling to ring a bell to go outside. That is a lot of fun! I do go in my crate to sleep and chill out and I even open the door to go in when there is a treat to be had. I love my peanut butter and really any and all treats so my foster mom says that makes me food motivated so I am going to be easy to train. She said I amaze her when I cuddle up on the couch, I can make myself super small to fit nice and snug next to her. I am working on basic commands and since I adore my foster fur sibling and playing with her is so much fun, I think it would be great to have a house with another fur sibling so we can have double the fun. You can go to the top and fill out an application so we can make sure we meet superfast.
My gorgeous eyes make you wonder if I’m born with it, or maybe it’s just Maybelline. I must admit I’m so much more than a pretty face and since I am a little petite pittie I can fit perfectly on any lap.
My beautiful name is Giada and I’m a super good girl. My foster mom and grandparents say I’m the best girl ever. I am full grown so you don’t have to worry about anything puppy! I still have energy to burn and I love a good romp in the yard with my foster brother who I adore. Once I got to know him he is my best buddy and we run in the yard and chase each other and play together every day. I also adore any toy ever made and I even enjoy carrying around a toy just for the fun of it. I also adore all humans and I catch a snuggle anytime I can but to watch out the window at my usual spot and just gaze outside at the neighborhood is pretty cool too. I love riding shotgun and I feel so comfortable in my crate I sometimes just go in there to snooze. I love to make my foster parents happy and I sure aim to please. I really love my foster family but I’m still looking for my forever family and I know you are out there. I need a family who is willing to take in a snuggle bunny for life and someone who loves a constant companion to pal around with who has a nice lap I could use as a big pillow. When you meet me you will know exactly why my foster family adores me. To schedule our first meet and greet go to the top of the page and the link will take you to an application to fill out so we can begin our adventures together.
HELLO! I'm Burrito. I'm a 5 year old Chihuahua. Humans tell me I'm a burrito of love! Apparently I'm sweet with a side of sass. You know how us chis do!
I'm dog friendly, both big and small I love them all! You can often find me rough housing with one of the big dogs and snuggling after, or being the go-to small dog tester for the rescue. Dogs that used to be scared of other dogs, such as Queenie, were drawn to me right away. What can I say, I’m a likable guy! *I actually would prefer to have a canine companion or two in my forever home.
I enjoy a nice long wall, and yes I bark at the cars to tell them how tough I am! Don’t mess with the best. I love a good play sesh but I'll never turn down a nap with some snuggles! I am the first one to snuggle up to my foster mom in bed- yes, I do expect to sleep in bed with you! I'm very tree motivated, a total character, and and also potty + crate trained. You should see how often I get my foster human smiling. What more could you ask for?
If you think I'm be a good addition to your family, please apply!
I’m such a handsome boy.
“Wyatt is a sweet affectionate dog who'll want to be your best friend and cuddle buddy.”
That is what my foster mom says about me. I am 40 pounds of pure love and at 1 ½ years old I am still a young boy. Let me give you a few details about myself.
Yes, I am house trained and I am comfortable in my crate during the day when my foster mom is at work especially when I get my favorite snack which is a big red Kong filled with frozen peanut butter and yogurt. Although I sleep in my crate during the day, I crash right next to my foster mom on a bed right next to hers and sometimes I even make it in my bed before she does and I am down for the night. I have had a few obedience classes and know most basic commands but they are a work in progress as we youngsters need those reminders. I walk pretty well on a leash but can sometimes pull but that is where my new command is coming in handy. I am practicing to “heel” for my nice long walks which I find so awesome with all the smells and fresh air not to mention I love meeting new people.
Playing fetch is fun but I’m not very good at it. I’m looking for my new family to teach me all of these new exciting things. I love laying around with my fur foster sister and any toy that has a squeaker in it gets my full attention. I want to be best friends with every dog I meet and while I’m still learning to nicely ask if we can play, I get along well with everybody on four legs. *I actually would do best in a home with another confident, fun loving, playful dog! I haven’t been with a cat in a while so I may need to learn to work on that but my other foster mom had one and we were chill together. My greatest hope is that I find a home that has another doggy friend to show me the ropes. I can be a bit of a shy guy when we are home and sometimes with new people coming in I feel like I need to safe guard my home and foster mom but I want to be inviting and courteous so I’m really trying to work hard on that. So to meet me in person so I can be my usual charming self, go up to the tab at the top and start filling out an application.
HAPPILY EVER AFTER......
