In shelter Dog

Mokena, IL, 60448
Pet name:
Pit Bull Terrier
Coat length:
Meet Ben! He is about 3 years old, knows some commands, and loves to play. 
Ben is nervous in our rescue environment and can take some time to warm up to new people. 
He needs someone patient that can show him he is safe and it’s alright to relax!
Once he is comfortable with someone his silly personality comes out and he loves playing with his toys. 

The NAWS Dog Adoption Program operates as a resucue verses a shelter. We believe in matching the right dog with the appropriate family based on each specific dog or familys needs. To achieve this, we believe in spending the appropriate amount of time with each family to allow for enough interaction time with potential adopters. This cannot be achieved if people stop by unexpectedly to meet our dogs. Please submit an application at under the Pet Adoption tab to setup a day or time to meet with one of our adoption counselors and our potential adoptees. 
Thank you!

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
