She has proved it several times at the veterinary hospital, much to everyone’s surprise. Delilah is high energy, loves to train and have a purpose in her life. A great working dog, along with a lovable companion. Delilah does need to be the only dog in the home right now. She is crate-trained, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped and spayed.

History: Delilah was owner surrender to Chicago Animal Control on December 2. 2016, she was known as Nala at the shelter.  Her prior owner described her as nippy and having no training.  They had gotten her from a previous owner at 2 months old and was surrendering her at 1 year old. Delilah joined the KEI family on January 30th having surpassed her kill date.

She was set to die on January 27th, but gained a reprieve when we promised to return that upcoming Monday to evaluate her.  What we saw when we met her was nothing short of inspiring. She had a way about her that told us she had miles to go. Not to mention the athletic gifts within her. Delilah has the moves of Walter Payton, the jumping skills of Edwin Moses and the speed of Usin Bolt.

She didn’t just walk out of CACC, she ran.  This girl is alive and loves life, every moment of every day.

December 4th, 2017

I am now living in a foster home with a family, their kitten and resident dog.  She doesn’t like other dogs, so we stay in our separate areas.  I am working on having dog friends, but my trainer says if I decide it’s not for me, that’s okay, I am plenty of dog for family’s only wanting one dog.  Lola, the kitten and I get along great, we enjoy watching the fish swim in the tank.  My favorite time now is hanging out on the sofa with whichever family member wants to cuddle.

Oh, before I sign off, please support the Brian and Amanda Bickell Foundation with a purchase of their “Bick’s Pit’s” 2018 Calendar.  You’ll find me inside with my boyfriend Taylor Kinney of Chicago Fire fame. I proved to everyone on set what an amazing dog I am, my bad habits are no more, and I deserve an equally amazing forever family.  You can learn more about me, set up a meet by emailing

MAY 2017: Delilah is currently in boarding waiting for a foster angel to find their way to our sweet girl. She is attending weekly training sessions as she learns the best ways to show off her gifts. This girl is an athletic spirit that enjoys running and playing as well as loving. She would do very well in an agility class once her mind can rest. Boarding saved her life but a home will soothe her soul. Delilah is looking for a guide, a foster to show her the way and to help continue training in the hopes that a family will see all the ways she glows. Please consider Delilah today. Please note: Delilah does need to be the only dog in the home.
