Past Time: Playing with my doggie foster brother and sister, smiling with my tounge out being a floppy goofball.

Interaction Preferences: I love dogs who like to wrestle! I am not interested in cats. I love older kids who I can't knock over!

Phife Dawg



Phife's Story...
Phife (dawg) is a 9 month old pittie mix who came to us as a stray, found running the alleys of Chicago. This little man is only about 40 lbs and almost full grown, so we expect him to remain less than 50. He is a sweet puppy, friendly and eager to meet new friends, human and doggie alike. Phife is working hard on his basic obedience training, but like all teenagers, still needs a bit of guidance!

Who would play me in a movie: Maggie Smith - I don't have time for shenanigans but I do love a good party (and a little gossip).
Favorite Movie: Casablanca
Reads: The Bronte Sisters
Sleep & Cuddle Tactics:  I sneak in under your arm, plop down on your lap, and snuggle in close.  
Spirit Animal: I am the spirit animal
What I sing in the shower: I will survive
Vice: Spearmint gum - a lady needs fresh breath! 
Past Time: Sleeping and taking care of Emma
Joke: I don't understand this whole joke thing.
Outlook: Well, I am little terrified of life.  Emma and I were brought into a super loud, smelly shelter and left there.  These nice ladies got us out and things have been getting better.  Emma and I spent the first couple days shivering in the back of our crate.  Now, we go to work and run around.  We play and like to cuddle.  We are still really scared of new things - like balls or toys or new people.  We don't snap or growl, we just shiver and hide.  Give us some time, be kind and patient and we will soon be your best friends.
Drink: martini
Food: steak - medium rare with horseradish and a baked potato
Style: Chanel
Interaction Preferences With:  My favorite thing in the world is my sister Emma.  I protect her and love her.  I warm up to other humans, haven't met any kids, don't care about cats, and am a little picky with dogs.  I like my space.  Right now, I live with a big lab mix.  He leaves me alone and I leave him alone.  Win Win in my book.

Favorite Movie: Sleepless in Seattle
Reads: Chick Lit!  
Sleep & Cuddle Tactics:  I'll love you and lick you and kiss you and be super excited about it!
Spirit Animal: A Squirrel
What I sing in the shower:  Top 40!  Today's hits.  Right now my fav is Cake By the Ocean.
Vice:  Pip gets me in so much trouble.  Today, we stole gum and tried to eat it all.  That Pip - such a bad influence.  (PSST, It was me!  It's always me!!  It smelled so good and I wanted to try it.  Pip was totally game for it and she will always take the fall for me!)  
Past Time:  Shopping, listening to music, hanging with Pip
Joke: Knock, Knock - oh wait, you've heard that one?
Outlook:  Things are getting better!  Pip and I ended up at this super scary place.  These ladies got us out and we've been staying at a house.  She's nice, she takes us to work and is patient.  I'm still pretty scared of everything, like balls and toys, and people.  I'm nice about it, I don't growl or snap, I just don't know much about the world yet.  I hope I find someone else patient to help me feel better about the world.  When I am comfortable, I run and play and try to get Pip to play with me.  I love laps and will fall asleep on yours.  I am a pretty happy gal overall.
Drink:  Zima
Food: Burgers and fries
Style: Forever 21 and H&M
Interaction Preference:  I like people but am nervous.  You'll have to be really slow and wait for me to feel comfortable.  It might take a week or two.  Then, I'll love you!  I haven't been around kids.  Cats are fine.  I like to play but can be a little picky about my doggie friends.  Pip is the best!

Bodhi


Bodhi is an 8 mo old pittie mix who was abandoned at Chicago Animal Control with his brother, Tobias. Our rescue friends at Players for Pits were able to help Tobias and take him into their rescue, and we were able to help Bodhi, so against all odds, two pittie brothers got to leave a high-kill impound and start new lives. Bodhi is sweet as can be, very gentle and can be a little timid but quickly relaxes and becomes playful again.
