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.
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!
I was pulled on Chicago Rescue Day and PPR decided my name would be Rachel 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 and cats are not my favorite so my forever home I would like to be the only fur baby there. And speaking of being the only fur baby, I would do best without children too. As your only child, 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.
Joey here, I am an 8 year old male Chihuahua and although I may be tiny my personality goes on for days. I don’t have the sass as some of my fellow Chi’s have but I’m confident that you will have never met a friendlier, super wiggly, playful guy. My tail is always wagging and my favorite thing to do is give you a facial with my hundreds of kisses. I sure take after my namesake in that department….Joey Tribbiani. I’m all “how you doin?” The sad part of my life is over but because of my poor diet and being stuck on the streets, I need major dental work. I will have some teeth extracted and that will give me some fresh breath for future make-out sessions. I love all people and dogs too but my best buddy is my foster brother, Chandler. He helped me to learn to go up and down stairs and I put up with his silly antics. I’m having fun keeping up with all my little foster friends but I’m really looking for that special family to have for all eternity. If you want to meet me in person you first have to fill out an application and set up a meeting. I will be checking in with my foster mom so hurry to the top of the page.
Tucker is my name and the PPR team calls me their one eyed wonder boy. I am about 7 years old and my eye was so painful I had to have it removed while in the shelter but I’m feeling so much better now. My foster mom says I am the most sweet and loving boy with the most gentle temperament ever. I am extremely patient with my foster brother who can be pretty energetic and I am learning to move through the world with half my sight. The things I used to bump into I clear no problem now. The best part is I am already trained and know my basic commands. I am crate trained but I would prefer a nice comfy bed to my crate and I am house trained but the best is when I get to walking with my foster mom she said I’m great on a leash. I kill it at snuggling and according to my foster mom I am a dream companion. So hurry to the top of the page and fill out an application to start the process of our first meeting.
I am proud to say my name is Brussels Sprout and I think that is the best name ever since I am so small and tiny. I am a baby boy around 14 weeks and they say I am a mixed pug puppy and super adorable. I’m working on potty training and can go for a long period of time but I am still a puppy so I need to work on being able to go all night without having to go outside but my foster mom says I am really trying hard. I do sleep in a crate and I love playing with other dogs and I am pretty good walking on a leash. All these new things I have to learn are so much fun but I want to have my forever family join me so we can share all the new “firsts” I will experience especially with the holidays coming up. And we can train together so I can learn to sit, lay down and work on all the basic commands. What a fun time that will be. So don’t hesitate go to the top of the page and fill out an application so we can meet.
I am a sweet gentlemen and my name is Ross. I am a young 9 years old and I have plenty of puppy left in me. I am like a spring board when I start jumping so my human knows that I just want to be picked up and loved. I can shower you with kisses too. I am a good boy looking for a home that I can find a pair of arms that will hold me for the rest of my life. I am dog friendly, house trained and crate trained so right there that’s a triple charm. My foster mom says I am the best boy and I am going to make a family so happy. But to start you need to go to the top of the page and fill out an app. So hurry I am waiting to meet you.
The name Queenie was bestowed upon me by the founder of PPR because she thinks I am a Royal Lady. I believe she wants me to feel special because of the way I entered the shelter after being a stray on the streets roaming forever and so scared. 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 I heard someone say 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! I also take treats gently, I like big and small dogs but I do prefer my fellow littles. 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. I’m looking for someone who loves to cuddle and wish I could find that special someone to give me a life full of love, understanding and patience. I also would prefer a house without children. If you’re interested in royalty, please go to the top of the page and fill out an app.
Jax is my name and those ears are obviously my game. I’m the cutest little boy and they tell me I'm around a year old. I can already sit and lay down when told and I just love playing with every toy you can think of. I’m working on those other cool tricks dogs learn and I am a super cuddler. I do love my walks because I get to see people and dogs – two of my favorite things! I am a great listener and love a cool little man. I'm working on liking my crate a little more each day and the best part of all is I’m potty trained. I would love to have a family to call my own but since I’m so big and clumsy a home with bigger kids would be my preference and just to share a little secret, I love to sleep in! I want to find my forever family so I can share in all the special holidays coming up so make it quick and apply! The tab at the top will take you where you need to go and apply.
While everyone was preparing for their Thanksgiving feast I was sitting in a cage looking out between the bars and wondering what I could be thankful for. Well, it didn’t take long because I was told I was going to be part of the PPR pack and just like that I was on my way to my new foster’s house. Since I was a “Thanksgiving” pull from the shelter I was given the name - Green Bean Casserole a/k/a Cassie. I am a baby girl at four months old but I’m pretty much house trained with an occasional accident but I am improving every day. I know the basic commands of sit and stay and crate training is a work in progress. I sleep in the crate at night but it takes a while for me to snuggle in and go to sleep but my foster mom says I am getting better every day. I walk great on a leash and I am kid friendly. I do have a lot of puppy energy so it will take the right dog to want to be my brother or sister since I can be super playful. My foster mom describes me as sweet, loveable, a great snuggler, curious and clumsy all in one. But I make her laugh and smile all the time. I can put a smile on your face too – just go to the top of the page and fill out an application for me.
Seeing it’s cuffing season, forget the human relationship and adopt me. My name is Rockefeller a/k/a Rocky and I will be all you need since I am a professional love bug and just a happy guy. I am a young boy at 3 years old and was referred to as a Velcro dog and I think that means I LOVE to be around humans, I love to lay on them and love to give out thousands of kisses preferably all over faces. I am friendly to people and dogs and my former owners who decided to move and leave me behind said I was with kids as young as infants and loved everyone. I have no idea why some human thought cutting my ears was a good idea because now I am super sensitive so sometimes I can appear head shy. I was left loose in my former home but it worked out really well in the crate when PPR took me in. I am great on a leash and love my walks. They say I am a dreamboat. I want to prove to you how much of a lover I am so go up to the top and fill out an application for me.
Spike is such a big dog’s name but after I was rescued by PPR and they said it made their hearts smile they wanted a big name for me so here I am looking for my forever home or a long term foster who would be able to take care of me while I am looking for the perfect family which I know is out there. I am a very handsome little Pomeranian, about a year old and they said I am a little fluff ball of adorableness. I am a good boy, dog friendly, vetted and as cute as can be. My former owners said I was snapping at the children in the home but I was evaluated at the shelter and I passed with flying colors but I still think I would do best with a home that had older children and that respected my space. I am good in a crate and housetrained but I do need to go outside often so I don’t have any accidents in the house. The best is when I get to take a walk outside. I walk great on a leash and love all those smells in the air. I am ready for some long walks and a home to call my own, hopefully before Christmas so quickly go to the top and fill out an application for me.
My gorgeous eyes make you wonder if I’m born with it, or maybe it’s just Maybelline but I must admit I’m so much more than a pretty face.
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.
I'm dog friendly, both big and small I love them all! I enjoy a nice long walk and a good play session but I'll never turn down a nap with some snuggles! I'm also potty trained and crate trained. What more could you ask for?
If you think I'm be a good addition to your family, please apply to meet me at www.pittiepleaserescue.org to set up a time!
Cubs Fan? I sure am that is why my name is Rizzo. PPR had to pick a special name for me because I am a very special boy for the crew here at PPR. Not only was I lucky and I was their 100th pull from the shelter, but they knew I had a horrible past life, even at my young age of 3, I have lived through such suffering at the hands of humans but that all ended and I’m ready for a bright and shining future and I have so much love to give.
I was in bad shape when I took my freedom ride but was so thankful. I began my road to recovery and healing from the horrible fate I encountered when I was used as a bait dog. I wasn’t a fighter so I had endured many bites and puncture wounds and there are so many scars that cover my body. My lip and tongue were ripped apart along with my poor tail that was split open to the bone which ended up having to be amputated but I can still wiggle what’s left of my tail when I see any human. I had several cracked teeth but I hear I don’t have to worry about any dental work. So during the treatment of all my physical injuries we discovered I had heartworm. I am receiving treatment for months and just recently a second round of meds were prescribed. I must keep super chill because of the strain on my heart but I have to admit I love snuggling with my foster mom so it isn’t so bad. I still cannot run or jump and I am limited to going outside for potty breaks only but in no time I know I will be cleared to run, walk and just enjoy the outdoors. My love of toys and food are what consumes my thoughts on these days. Of course my foster family just showers me with love and affection and I’m crazy about them and snuggling is my absolute favorite thing in the entire world. I want nothing more than to be loved in a home I can call my own. If you can give that to me, please apply at the top of the page.
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 and 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. Although, 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 friendly, confident pup who can teach 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......
