About Chicago (east)

Rottweiler / German Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Hi, my name is CHICAGO - ID#A4363612. I am a neutered male, black and brown Rottweiler and German Shepherd Dog. The shelter staff think I am about 3 years old, and I have been at the shelter since Jan 06, 2020. Look at that smile! Doesn't it brighten your day? It did mine. Chicago doesn't know that he is at immediate risk because he is heart-worm positive. He is goofy, affectionate, not bad on leash, could use some training, but is coming out of his shell more each day. He doesn't seem to know what a toy is, how to sit or anything because I'm sure most of his time during his 3 yrs have been working to survive. I would love for him to get a chance to just to be a dog! He came in with another dog off the reservation. The other dog was luckily adopted but they both have had the misfortune of being tick fever and heartworm positive :( Heartworm treatment is not something that can be handled in the shelter and Chicago needs an immediate outlet. We do not know how he would do with small dogs, cats or kids. A dog intro is recommended but he did co-exist with a calm female, after being convinced he shouldn't hump her. Here is the latest note from a volunteer who spent time with Chicago: '1/20/2020 WALK Chicago was calm, friendly, timid, an easy pull/return, walked on easy/loose lead, solicited petting and was cautious. Seemed a little scared on the pull and unsure, but still very friendly. A little erratic on leash, could use some leash work. Mellow guy.' Please consider this poor street waif for your next furry family member. 'URGENT' - If you have no breed restrictions, please call ASAP 520-800-4633. *NOTE: This dog is located at MCACC East: 2630 W Rio Salado Pkwy, Mesa AZ 85201
