If you are heading out to the Andersonville Animal Rescue Weekend between now and Sunday, you’ll have the chance to meet many wonderful pets needing a home. Here are four dogs from Famous Fido Rescue & Adoption Alliance that have waited a bit too long to find a family. (See event story.)
If you are looking for an active playmate, look no further than Brownie. This handsome, sweet, lovable pit bull is around eight-months-old and is about 50 pounds. Brownie loves to have fun with people and other dogs and is full of kisses and tail wags for everyone he meets. Along with playing ball, he loves to walk and get lots of exercise.
Brownie is housebroken, knows his commands, takes treats gently and would love nothing more to settle in with a loving guardian. He came into Famous Fido as a stray, and has settled in nicely since his rescue.
Pal is a quiet and snuggly senior dog that would love nothing more than to spend his golden years in a loving home. This Chihuahua mix is around nine-years-young and a compact eight pounds. One of his endearing qualities is his bat-like ears.
Pal loves people and also loves socializing with other dogs. He was rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control and spends his days at the grooming salon at 5430 North Clark Street.
Tyson is a special dog that is looking for the right home that has lots of love, patience and compassion to spend time with this little fellow, earning his trust. Tyson is a loyal pup once he gets comfortable around you and walks are one of his favorite tings.
This charming Min-pin is around seven and is about 15-pounds and does not do well with kids or cats. Tyson was rescued from a high kill shelter and is ready to find a good home for a happy ending.
Finally we have Sweetie, a blind pit bull that was found wandering the streets of Chicago. She had two cancerous masses removed after sitting at animal control for several months prior to her rescue. Sweetie needs a foster or forever home where she can be the one and only pet. Learn more about Sweetie’s tale in her previous story.
