SEE -- NOW THAT'S a dog! He looks much healthier. See how his feet look? That's how the feet should look. The description also looks good. Looks like he has been in a foster home that should be able to tell you a lot about his personality. It looks like they have told a lot in the description -- fitting right in line with the way a pit bull should be -- "loves everyone."
Doing all his playing outside and settling inside? My dog doesn't even have this skill. Lets you trim his nails too? I think you should go for it.
May I make another suggestion? CALL THEM. I have found that many of these rescue folks are understaffed -- they often don't answer emails. NOT because they don't want you to adopt, but they don't have time to weed through the spam to find real applicants. Or go to the website and see how to submit an application.
Good luck.

If you adopt a dog from a reputable rescue in IL, I would be more than happy to help with the transport. :)

i am a strong advocate for fostering a dog. It's so hard to meet a dog for 15 minutes or see one online and just be like, "yep, that's the dog for me".
fostering is a win/win. Either you foster and help find the dog a great home...or you fall in love and adopt yourself. I would suggest finding a local rescue that has a foster network and fill out an application.

Excellent advice! :thumbsup:
And those pups on the website for the 'breeder' are very sad. The pup on Petfinder, :inlove: .

Well I called them today and talked to them for a bit about Niles and I had to cave in and put in an application for him. I'll keep everyone updated!
