The LatestAs some of you already know, the runaway dog that was wandering the Eisenhower Expressway is recuperating at the hospital. His name is Eisenhower and is being called Ike for short. I spoke to one of the employees and she informed me that the hospital is being deluged with calls. Since he has no collar, tags or microchip, Ike will be released to a local rescue group to be adopted. The hospital employees believe him to be between 3 to 5 years old.
More Than Meets The EyeWhile speaking to Ali, an employee of the hospital on the phone, she informed me that the hospital gets quite a few pit bulls in their care. They actually have them for adoption because so many of the rescue groups are full and pit bulls are not that popular because of all the backlash from the media. I only wish they put as much effort in printing the positive stories about pit bulls as they did the negative.
If you live in the Chicagoland area, are fond of the pit bull breed, and looking for a canine companion, please contact the Hillchester Hospital for more information at 708-449-6300. Many of these dogs have sweet dispositions and will make an excellent companion.
