Dingo was adopted but surrendered 10 days ago due to his last adopter’s medical issues, he is now back looking for another permanent home for the third time. He’s only 8 months and has been in and out of the shelter 3 times! Let’s hope third time’s the charm.

Dingo is a 8 months Boxer x Pitbull mixed breed puppy. He is Loving, fun, friendly, playful, sociable, smart, sweet and loves squeaky toys. He is Crate-trained, housebroken, walks well on leash and understands basic commands.

Dingo is an incredibly sweet and energetic boy who has faced numerous challenges in his young life. Originally transferred from Alabama to the Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago, Dingo found a loving home in March, filled with hope for a bright future. However, a tragic incident occurred while he was under the care of a sitter, resulting in a fractured leg.

Thankfully, his microchip allowed the Anti-Cruelty Society to identify him and bring him back to their care as a stray. The shelter promptly contacted his adopters, but regrettably, they were unable to reclaim him due to their absence. Sadly, they never returned for him, which is truly disheartening. ????

Upon evaluating Dingo’s injury, the shelter made the difficult decision to amputate his leg on 6/12. Fortunately, he is now on the path to recovery and is progressing well. Despite the hardships he has faced, Dingo remains resilient and hopeful for a loving and permanent home. Dingo met his new adopters while on a walk with his foster and joined their home on 7/15. They were exceptionally kind to him and dedicated to aiding his recovery through physical therapy and basic behavioral training. Unfortunately, just as he was settling into what he believed would be his forever home, fate took another unfortunate turn. Dingo was once again surrendered due to one of the owner’s medical issues on 9/8.

This is the tragic and traumatic life that Dingo has endured. On 9/12, Dingo successfully passed all shelter evaluations and is now in search of a new home once more. Please if you can, consider fostering, adopting, or sharing Dingo’s story within your networks to prevent him from returning to the shelter environment. Let’s together ensure he can finally experience the happiness and stability he so rightfully deserves. Dingo is overflowing with love, joy, and loyalty, eager to give his heart to his new family.
