How Pittie Please Rescue is rewriting histories

I have been slacking lately. Getting back from a long weekend, a trip to NYC, and my birthday has been a rough shock to the system. But I needed to write this post because you needed to meet some amazing dogs from a new rescue I worked with recently.

My friend (and Rescue Chicago co-founder) Margaret connected me with Pittie Please Rescue back in March. When I found out another rescue superstar, Rachel Burger, was a foster, I couldn’t wait to learn more about them and their mission. 

Founded in June 2017, Pittie Please Rescue is a foster-based all-breed rescue focusing on advocating for pit bull type dogs. Their goal is to help erase stigmas and show everyone how absolutely wonderful dogs are. While their priority is pitties, it certainly hasn’t stopped them from saving any dog in need. From Chihuahuas to Yorkies, Pittie Please has helped all kinds of dogs.

Pittie Please also happens to be chock full of cuteness. Just take a look at their adoptable dogs, and it’s hard to choose a favorite. Then, when you learn of each dog’s heartbreaking story, you fall even more in love with their crew of loveable pups.

Take Rudy and Beanie for example. When I met them, I vaguely remembered seeing their story on Facebook. They came into Chicago Animal Care & Control after their owner tried to take both her and the dogs’ lives. It was such a heartbreaking story and I was glad to see the Rudy and Beanie were getting so much love in their foster home. 

Then there is Buddy, Rachel’s foster dog. This very good boy was originally adopted from Chicago Animal Care & Control and then six months later through CRISP. Luckily, Pittie Please decided going back to the shelter was not an option so instead, he became part of their family. He nailed all his commands (pics for proof) and was such a perfect little model.

And lastly, I met Ritz, a puppy full of spunk but so treat-motivated that she was by far the easiest puppy I’ve worked with. She was pulled from her mother and litter too early (argh to backyard breeding) and missed out on the major socialization window. Now, she’s thriving.

Pittie Please Rescue has taken in so many dogs with all kinds of stories. Each one having a more heartbreaking past than the last. Those histories don’t define their futures though, and that’s what makes rescue so inspiring. Pittie Please is giving these dogs a second chance to live a life full of love, no matter what they’ve been through. 

Thank you to Pittie Please Rescue for working with me on this shoot!


You’ve heard all their stories, now here are their details!

Rudy & Beanie – This bonded pair has been through a lot but they’ve gone through everything with each other. Beanie has trouble with his back legs and Rudy is his little feisty protector. Both of these two littles are house trained and don’t need to be crated. They’d love a home with adults only. For more information about these two, click here

Buddy – As I mentioned, this handsome boy knows all his manners and is such a good dog. He’s extremely photogenic (duh) and he loves dogs, people, and even passed the cat test. He would do well in a home with a dog who loves to play. For more information about Buddy, click here

Ritz – Have you seen a more precious pup? Didn’t think so. This pretty girl loves to play but also enjoys her snacks and is patient enough to wait for them. At about six months old, she’d love another dog who enjoys to play and older children. For more information about Ritz, click here
