Who needs a hug? Meet Darlene, a 2-year-old Pit Bull mix who will climb on your lap and nestle her head right in the crook of your neck. This girl is full of love!

Darlene was hit by a car while living the life of a stray in Alabama and was well-cared for through surgery and recovery. Now she is fully healed (including a stint in physical therapy!) and searching for a family of her own.

This beautiful girl weighs about 40 pounds, is housebroken and crate-trained, and already knows several commands (sit, off, potty, outside). But really, the big story about Darlene is how much love she has to give. She wants nothing more than to cuddle and express her gratitude. An ideal home for Darlene would be one without humans younger than 16 as she seems nervous around children.

Need a little more love in your life? Come meet Darlene this weekend and see if her bright eyes and big heart win you over. We’re betting they will!

Please check our events page at to find where this dog may be shown this weekend. If you are interested in adopting this dog, you must send an application or email us at prior to a Saturday Adoption Event so we know you plan on attending. If we do not receive any communication from you, the dog may be adopted out at our event prior to 12 pm if the perfect home comes along. 🙂 

The breed or breed mix listed for each dog is simply a guess. The profile software program requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. However, visual breed identification is unreliable. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog’s individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess. Dogs are individuals.

Please understand, we only adopt our animals out near Chicagoland... we are sorry but we cannot accept any out of state applications. We look forward to speaking with you!
