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 playful and cuddly. 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 am working on my crate training, I promise to keep my crate dry but I am learning that it's an okay place to be!
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! How lucky for me and my future forever family!
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 working 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’m Rachel – PPR decided to make it my lucky day on Chicago Rescue Day and free me from the small kennel and give me a chance to find my forever family. I’m a super happy girl and pretty low key. I may be big but I think of myself as a gentle giant. I am a youngster about 2 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 love playing with my foster doggie siblings but I’m really looking for that special person or family that would take me in and give me a place to call my forever home. I have a ton of love to give so 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 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.

Rock Star is my chosen name and I am 11 months old. I am one happy guy since spending 127 days in the shelter stressed me out and my luck was running out since I was not my best at the shelter they deemed me difficult and time was not on my side. I was lucky enough to meet the founder of PPR and she would not give up on me! After a few weeks and a few obstacles we sure conquered them together and before I knew it I was riding shotgun on my freedom ride. I will tell you a few things about me to let you know I live up to my name. I am house trained but I do need someone to remind me to go outside because I am still pretty young and need the reminder. I prefer to sleep in my crate for naps and at night and I rock walks on a leash and we even ran a few miles the other day and I loved it. My foster mom says I am a quick learner and I love giving kisses. If you were wondering, I am good with other dogs too. I am working on getting over thinking stranger means danger and I’ve come a long way but I still sometimes need extra time and a slow introduction so I can feel comfortable. I need a forever family to start my second chance at a great life so go to the top of the page and fill out an application so we can get the process rolling.
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.
Grigio is my new name and I hear my name reflects the PPR team’s love of wine and grapes. Either way I am happy to be out of the shelter. I was terrified in there and shook so much from fear I couldn’t be happier on my freedom ride. I am a 5 year old French Bulldog. And not to brag but my breed – as sometimes are referred to as “Frenchie’s” are one of the most popular smaller breeds. I guess because we are charmers and pretty smart. I am crate trained but I prefer to be on a cozy bed but then again who wouldn’t?! I always tell my foster mom when I have to go outside to potty and I can run a mean set of zoomies in the yard. I get super excited when it’s time to go for walks or car rides and I never chew anything when I am at home. I am working through a few things that once I have had an opportunity to work on I will master them. For instance, stairs are a little intimating but with treats and time I will be able to jump up and fly up and down them. I am working on my socialization with four-legged friends. I can be a bit overwhelming and become too much so I am looking for a home with no other dogs. I guess I wasn’t properly socialized and while I’m friendly toward children yet I do become overstimulated so I can get mouthy and I don’t like my paws touched (which is one thing I am working with my foster mom) I feel like I would like a new home without young children. I am a character so you need to hurry up because I think I am going to find my forever family quick so don’t hesitate go to the top of the page and fill out an application.
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......
