James is a young on the tiny side probably only about 6 months old pittie mix. He has a rear leg (left) acl tear according to medical. Very sweet, in spite of this injury. Good energy and wanted to play. He did play with a shy dog and wasn't annoying or overly jumpy. Typical puppy play. We have a contact to do the surgery, but have to have a rescue who has a foster that will adhere to his rehab requirements before the surgery can get done.
APPROVED TO RESCUE: If you are an approved Homeward Bound Partner you have two options:
Rescue Interest: This type of hold gives the group five days – find foster, make arrangements for transport, etc. At any point during the hold, the group can convert the hold to a Firm Hold. During the interest hold period, another group can pull the dog. This hold cannot be extended.
Firm hold: This type of hold means the group is committed to pulling the dog. The group has three days to pick up the dog and the hold cannot be extended. An email needs to be sent to CaccRescue@cityofchicago.org with the dog’s inventory number and the name of the group. The group should also indicate in the email who is picking up the dog if it is not an individual listed on the Homeward Bound paperwork completed by the group.
WANT TO FOSTER: The dogs featured on this page are NOT available for direct adoption. If you are interested in adopting a dog featured on the page, please reach out to one of our approved Homeward Bound partners and apply to foster or foster to adopt.
