Welcome to DIRE STRAITS!


FEZZIK and VINNY are two of our most recent rescues.

This is a photo of Fezzik when he was brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control. Fezz is a mastiff who should weigh between 120 and 140 pounds. He weighed 60 pounds.



We didn’t know if Fezzik could be saved, but with great medical care and careful feeding, Fezz is quickly blossoming into a very handsome, goofy and lovable big guy!



VINNY may have been expected to fight, or may have been used as a bait dog. Either way, our boy is a lover, not a fighter! Vinny is only about eight months old, but has suffered terribly. He is healing well and is one of the sweetest, most loving dogs you will ever meet!
