Volunteers have described "Disco," a two-year-old pit bull, as "perfect" and "playful and friendly," but the glowing accolades have net yet convinced a rescue agency to scoop her up to safety.

Disco is currently housed at the Chicago Animal Care and Control facility in Ill., where she has been impounded since May. During her stay, she has proven herself to be a gem of a dog who loves to lounge and cuddle. Disco also enjoys playtime with most dogs (though she can be a bit rough at times).

While at the facility, Disco was even tested with cats - the following information was posted about the interaction:

Did a cat test and she was barely interested in fact more scared. Two cats actually lunged and hissed, she' backed away immediately. Come get this girl, who's desp. for belly rubs.

In early July, an individual who met Disco wrote:

I had a chance to meet her this week and she is AWESOME. I loved walking her, watching her run around off-leash and then indulged her in some major, major belly rubs and pets. Such a fun and lovey personality. Rescues, meet her when you're ready to fall in love.

If Disco is to leave the facility, she will need a rescue agency who is willing to take a chance on her.

  • IMPORTANT NOTE FOR RESCUES: It is the full responsibility of the rescue organization to temperament test dogs. As volunteers, the CACC Transfer Team strives to photograph the dogs and say what behavior has been observed. The team cannot perform temperament tests, and of course, can never guarantee the behavior of any dog.
