Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jack came to my daughter's house as a stray dog about 5 years ago. We knew if we turned him in he would most likely be euthanized. Jack is a good dog, but does not like to be disciplined. He can chew through almost anything. And although he was completely house-trained at one time, lately he leaves his scent here and there throughout the house. I believe the problem might be the other dogs I have. I want Jack to go to a GOOD home - a dog or pitbull lover who is willing to work with Jack and re-train him. If he didn't work out, I would always be willing to take him back.

Weimaraner    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello! My name is Zar and I am a handsome, 1-year-old, male Weim! My birthday is coming soon and in September I will be two! I am hoping to be in my forever home to celebrate with my new family! My foster mom describes me as very sweet and lovable! I am a small boy only weighing about 45 pounds. I really enjoy taking walks and I do not bother with squirrels, birds or bunnies because I am too busy exploring the world! Just being a regular dog is all new to me. A not-so-nice breeder left me overnight at a shelter and the nice folks at GLWR agreed to help me find a home! I am great with other dogs, big or small, and I bonded quickly to my ... (Read More)foster sister who is a Cocker Spaniel. I have not been introduced to a cat so I am not sure if I like them or not but we do have 2 parrots in the house and I do not mind them at all. I am house broken and enjoy spending time in the backyard soaking in the sun or playing fetch with the ball. I am still a puppy at times and forget to give the ball back but we are working on this! I am crate trained, but I have not shown any signs of separation anxiety and enjoy having my kong filled with treats when left for a long time to keep me busy. I have been left to roam the house and I have been doing well and not getting into any trouble. I love snuggling with my foster mom on the couch after a walk or at the end of a long day. I do not bark unless I hear someone at the door and I am not aggressive at all food or otherwise. My foster mom has taught me the basic commands and I will sit, stay, come, wait, and even shake paws with her! I am food motivated and enjoy my treats. I would love to find an active couple that enjoys the outdoors or a family with older children. Small children make me nervous as they move too quickly. I would really love a home with another dog that is not too pushy or aggressive. I like a mellow, playful companion. I will need a family who is patient and understands I take time to warm up to people I do not know, especially men. I have come a long way in my journey to find a family and I will make a wonderful lifelong companion! I am located in Illinois and I am anxious to meet my forever family! (Less)

Siberian Husky    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! I'm Motley! My family needs to rehome me (much to their sadness) because although I am very sweet, loving, talkative, and SUPER smart, I have a taste for our neighbors' chickens... and my people don't want to keep me in a pen for the rest of my long life (I'm only 3!). I live outside, but would love to have an owner that has the patience and love in their heart (and home) to teach me how to be an inside girl! I'm so smart, I can easily pick up on what you want me to do. I have a lot of energy, which gets me into trouble if I don't have enough to do. I guess you could say I'm a typical Husky! I love to play with our other dogs (labs, a ... (Read More)beagle, and a maltese/poodle mix), so I think if you have other babies, I could learn to love them too. As for children, I haven't had much of a chance to be around little ones, but as with any dog, I should be supervised because I tend to get excited... I think I can learn how to stay calm and not to jump. Please consider giving me a home where I can get love, exercise, and the training I need so I can be the best friend you'll ever have. My mom's friend is helping with the adoption process, so please contact her at 6186974572 or juliahayward12@gmail.com. She says she keeps strange hours so you can get ahold of her at any time. Thanks for looking! *My rescue fee is negotiable. I want somebody who can keep me UTD & my belly full, though! I'll need a vet reference. (Less)

At a tender young age, when most puppies are pouncing and playing and going for walks, Baby Grace was dumped in an area of South Florida known to local dog rescuers as The Redlands... Here, hundreds of dogs get dumped everyday, abandoned by their owners, left without food, water, or any kind of shelter from Florida's brutal temperatures. These innocent and helpless animals don't have a chance at survival... Most die ... (Read More)from starvation, and the rest either succumb to the heat or get run over by motorists who run them down for fun. Death seems to be a welcome blessing, saving them from this horrible life they never wanted or deserved. Baby Grace was spotted by several people because she was just a tiny baby...terrified for her, they fed her scraps and tried desperately to keep her alive, praying she would make it until help came... If it ever came. And then one day, help did come for her and Baby Grace was finally rescued! She has been to the vet and has received a clean bill of health, and is now with a loving foster mom who was instrumental in her rescue and fought hard to save her life. She is also available for our Foster to Adopt program. This program allows you to be the family that greets her when she arrives in Illinois. Foster to Adopt families have the first option to adopt if you determine this is the pup right for you! While you foster, we pay all expenses from vetting, to food and we provide a crate, leash, collars, and toys. Your family provides love (something she desperately needs!) and a safe place to lay her head until she finds her forever home. We also require that you have the ability to take her to routine veterinary visits at our participating vets. These vets are located in Wheaton, Naperville, and Elmhurst. Spay/Neuters are done in North Aurora. Fostering is the most life giving thing you can do for a dog or puppy! It is a very rewarding experience that will make a huge impact on their life. By becoming a foster you are saving 2 lives - the animal you bring into your home while he or she waits to be adopted, and the animal who gets to take your foster's place in the shelter.

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Donald! Currently about 7 lbs. DOB 5/27/15 Introducing the most popular kids on the block, Mickey Mouse and Friends Litter! They are the most adorable mixed breed, looking like a Doxie/Lab. All have an awesome balance of playfulness and cuddles. With the desire to entertain and be entertained, they are looking for a fun filled, active family. They are happy pups, and love to engage in any game or toy that is offered, big, little or silly. A few games they love to play with each other, another dog in the house or their people would include tug, fetch, keep away, crawling through tunnels, climbing over a new obstacle, treat puzzle toy ... (Read More)and a new toy they haven't seen yet is really exciting. They will also accept any and all cuddles they can get. When picked up, they settle right in, and love to be carried around as long as you will hold them. Crawling into your lap for some cuddles is also a favorite. They have had lots of visitors and love everyone, and I think they would have fun with kids to play with. Previous puppy experience would be a big plus, since they will need basic training from the beginning. Since they entered their foster home at a young age they are just now available for adoption after receiving all their vaccinations. Which also means they will need to be housebroken, they are currently pad trained. Little Donald is a very sweet and playful boy. He likes to cuddle for a bit, but then he's ready for some play action! He is great with other dogs and kids and will make a great family dog. Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Breeds noted here are an educated best guess and are not a guarantee. (Less)

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] [Read About Natural Cancer Care] oliver is a fluff Yorkshire terrier. I rescued him about 4 years ago. Unfortunately my health has declined and I need to find him a home ASAP. I will not start my medical treatment until I find him a home. He is a lovable lap dog or will just lay at your feet. He likes to take short leisurely walks on the leash. He is potty trained. I crate him when I leave the home and at bedtime. When I received Oliver I felt lumps under neck. The previous owner said her vet told her the lumps were from bad teeth. I took Oliver to my vet who biopsied the nodules. It came back that he had ... (Read More)lymphoma. They told me without treatment (chemo and radiation) he maybe would live 2-6 months. I opted to forgo any treatment. Oliver is very alive without treatment. He does not act sick. Our vet calls him our miracle dog. She said it is very rare for any animal to survive lymphoma. Within the last 2 months Oliver has started having seizures. He was started on phenobarbital (can get for $11 thru CVS pharmacy). His seizure activity is controlled 100%. If you have any other questions I have not addressed here please ask. I want to find him a nice owner and home. He deserves it. (Less)

People stop us on our walks to admire and play with him. He is all love and kisses, has a larger-than-life personality and energy to spare. Sadly, Theo lost his home when his mom was admitted to a psychiatric hospital. Theo had been found wandering stray multiple times during his puppyhood, but this last time his guardian signed relinquishment papers realizing she couldn't properly care for him. The neighborhood rejoiced because they feared something bad ... (Read More)would happen to him on his joy runs. Theo is a super smart puppy who already knows the command sit (at least a quick touch down) and takes treats gently from your fingers. He loves to learn new tricks and loves to play fetch or chew on his bones and toys! He also loves walks and runs and greats everyone he meets with a happy roll, jump and kiss. He does take breaks on his walks (for about three seconds) and relaxes with his legs straight out in a frog-like manner. And, then he bounces back! Theo has been doing fantastic with his housebreaking and is crate-trained. Due to his terrier nature, I don't think I'd recommend him for homes with small pets like cats, rabbits, etc. But he loves other dogs but they don't appear to understand his energetic and sometimes noisy greeting! Theo is neutered, vaccinated, on monthly heartworm preventative and treated with de-wormer and flea preventative. He is looking for someone who has the time to invest in Theo's daily exercise, training and love. To meet and possibly adopt Theo, please contact me directly at sheri@petraits.com or 773-777-2891. His adoption fee of $350 benefits rescued pets. He's currently living with me in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. (Less)

    My name is Juno and I am a neutered male and very intelligent and affectionate and loyal. I am a mixed breed of St. Bernard and Bull Mastiff and I get along well with other dogs well at the dog park. I share a house with three very small dogs at home and I'm happy to wait my turn when we all share a snack. This year I marched in a 4th of July parade and spent time greeting children and adults. Although I require a little activity each day, I am also happy to be at home and with my family. Juno is very housebroken and has never had an accident inside, unlike our smaller dogs.

Lab Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    DOB 5/27/15 Introducing the most popular kids on the block, Mickey Mouse and Friends Litter! They are the most adorable mixed breed, looking like a Lab/Doxie. All have an awesome balance of playfulness and cuddles. With the desire to entertain and be entertained, they are looking for a fun filled, active family. They are happy pups, and love to engage in any game or toy that is offered, big, little or silly. A few games they love to play with each other, another dog in the house or their people would include tug, fetch, keep away, crawling through tunnels, climbing over a new obstacle, treat puzzle toy and a new toy they haven't seen yet is ... (Read More)really exciting. They will also accept any and all cuddles they can get. When picked up, they settle right in, and love to be carried around as long as you will hold them. Crawling into your lap for some cuddles is also a favorite. They have had lots of visitors and love everyone, and I think they would have fun with kids to play with. Their foster home has 3 other dogs that they get along great with, and especially love playing with the 3 yr old canine, who is usually included in all their playtime. Previous puppy experience would be a big plus, since they will need basic training from the beginning. Since they entered their foster home at a young age they are just now available for adoption after receiving all their vaccinations. Which also means they will need to be housebroken, they are currently pad trained. They are also used to and will continue to need someone being home with them most of the day. We have our little Princess, Daisy, the largest of the pack at about 7 lbs. She is super sweet, a face that everyone falls in love with and will wait patiently for her turn to be picked up, but then melts in your arms We do not have a facility, all of our dogs and puppies are placed in foster homes. Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Tater Tot! She is one the the most gentle and sweetest dogs we have ever had. We believe she is about 5-6 yrs old. Tater has come a long way. She originally came from a local open access shelter where she had come in as a "stray". Poor Tater was so obese and could not walk at all so we are sure she was dumped by her previous owner- as she certainly wasn't even capable of "running away" even if she wanted to. She barely could hold herself up. Through several months of proper vet care, measuring her food, water therapy, and exercises she has went from 9.6 lbs to 5.7 lbs- which is HUGE! The vet believes her rear ... (Read More)legs were not formed properly from birth, which causes her some challenges when walking. She gets along great now, but will never walk normally. She does best on grass, carpet and rubberized flooring. She will need a family who will be dedicated to keeping the weight off of her and to continue working with building her muscles in her rear legs. Tater also has low thyroid, which she is on daily medication for, which is fairly inexpensive. She gets along with other dogs, does great with her housetraining and will be a wonderful companion for the lucky family who adopts her. Tater Tot's adoption fee is $250. If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at www.perfectpooches.org under the Adoption Process tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested (as appropriate), fecal tested, and microchipped. (Less)

    This beautiful dog is 5 years old and is a total sweetheart. She is very affectionate! She bonds closely to her humans, and she unfortunately has been adopted and returned twice due to her separation anxiety. Madigan would therefore do best in a home where she doesn't have to be alone often! Though she may do ok with other dogs, she does at least show barrier frustration and it is recommended she be the only dog in the home. Please meet this sweet girl and give her the forever home she deserves- finally.

    This cutie pie has been at a shelter for close to a year. Ramon loves being around dogs his size but can be fearful of larger ones. He is scared of/slow to warm up to men, but many patient men have won him over! Though he's timid and requires patience, once you form a bond with him, he is just as happy as can be to see you and greets you with the cutest wiggles! Ramon can get super playful when you get down on his level. He has been waiting much too long for his forever family and really deserves a chance to live the normal dog life that he deserves!

    Boss is an amazingly affectionate 6 year old dog who has been passed around shelters for well over a year. His favorite thing to do is lick your face!! Boss unfortunately gets passed by at the shelter time and time again, maybe because of his size and/or pit label? He may do best in a home without small kids or other dogs only because of his size and some toy guarding issues. However, the guarding issues can definitely be overcome with time and patience! He is doing fantastic in training and already knows sit, down, paw (both), and heel. He really is just a big goofy lovebug. Please give this guy the chance at life he deserves- I ...

    Jimbo is such a sweet dog that has been passed around shelters for far too long. He has a lot of energy and is very intelligent, so he definitely doesn't do well living in a cage. Jimbo absolutely loves playing with toys! Because of his high energy level, Jimbo would likely do best in a home without young children. He is strong but would respond very well to training, and he already knows a few basic commands. He is very wiggly and affectionate : ) Jimbo just needs a family to call his own to play with and exercise him!

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Stella! About 40 Pounds Lab/Sheltie Stella came to Illinois from a shelter in Alabama the works tirelessly to find rescues for abandoned dogs. We don't know the things that she has been through in her short life, but we do know she needs love! Stella is shy and a bit fearful when she first meets you and will occasionally growl at strangers, but that is most likely due to her past experiences. Once she gets to know you, she will show you her charming and playful side and her energetic personality! Stella gets along with other dogs and really enjoys rough housing with her foster siblings and chewing on toys. In fact, we believe that ... (Read More)she would fit best in a home with another dog(s) and/or older kids. Stella is currently living with a cat. She is not aggressive towards the cat and she does not chase him. In addition to playing, Stella greatly enjoys eating'|most likely due to her being abandoned and lacking food. She shows no food aggression but will try and eat the other dog's food after she quickly finished her own. Stella has basic training completed including 'sit,' and 'come.' She tries to wander around the neighborhood but returns home when called. With training, Stella has the potential to do well in an unfenced yard, but a fenced yard is preferable. She walks well on a leash and enjoys nightly walks before bed. Stella is accustomed to snuggling in bed with you at night and roaming the house while you are at work. She has not been crated, is just about house broken and will have it mastered quickly with continued training. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

But she has the wrinkly face, triangle ears and skinny little tail of a Shar Pei. She knows the command sit and takes treats gently from your fingers. She's also housebroken and crate-trained. While she adores Chance, she is sometimes selective of her other dog friends. Chance is shorter and slightly heavier at 55 pounds. He is fluffy, plush and sweet and ... (Read More)great with all people and all dogs - but not cats. He's a gentle sweetheart who is housebroken and crate-trained. He loves his best friend Reba.

They'd love a fenced yard so they can cuddle and play together. Their adoption fee as a pair of $350 benefits the rescued dogs of We Luv Paws.

He is not nurtured and pretty energetic. He loves to cuddle. He does really good at the dog park and loves to go to the forest preserves and run around off leash. He doesn't run away and He loves to swim. He currently has a brother who is about a year older and a little bit smaller. They get along great and are best friends. They love to spend hours swimming in a lake or pool and love to play fetch even tho Leo doesn't give the ball back. He currently knows how to sit and ... (Read More)give paw. He is starting to get the hang on lay down if you repeat it and point at the ground. We are working on drop it but he doesn't like that command very much and even when he does drop his toy he usually picks it up right away. He does growl sometimes when he's playing tug of war but it's a playful growl. He also growls when he feels threatened but he usually gets sent to his cage when he growls and he's really good about that and will usually get in his cage right away. He does like to cry in when he's in his cage though. I would really love to keep him but I am moving out of state and it just won't be possible. I have about 2 weeks to find him a new home or else I will have to end up giving him up to a shelter and I would really hate to do that since he is a out bull and a big dog. I'm afraid he will be stuck in the shelter for to long or will end up getting out down. If interested please contact me ASAP. I'm starting to run out of options. (Less)

He has done beautifully with his housebreaking; although he does submissively urinate upon meeting new people. He knows the commands 'sit' and 'stay' and is working on 'come'. He is very food-motivated and loves to learn! He also loves other dogs but plays in a rough and tumble fashion. With adults he is full of kisses and tail wags, he ...

Although is housebroken, he's also crate-trained as he is still in his puppy chewing stage '| and he LOVES to chew. Lazslo's adoption fee of $300 benefits rescued pets.

Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Unfortunately Mr Jack has not been a good fit for our home. While he is an extremely loving pup (5yo) he is just a little to rambunctious and curious.

As a disclaimer one of the main problems we run into now is that our crate will not hold him (he breaks out constantly) and you cannot leave any kind of edible within ...

    Bruno is a little over a year old, full of energy. Loves people and loves to play. He is easy to train and since we got him, has never had an accident inside. My son is now working long hours with no end on sight and a family member recently had a brain injury so that limits my availability to help. He's a great dog and want him in a loving home.

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-11-00043Jack Sr. (male)

German Shorthaired Pointer    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jack may be grey but he has the energy of a much younger dog! He goes out of his way to greet everyone he met...adults, children, and other dogs. When he finds a stash of dog toys, he is like a kid at Christmas, pulling one after another out of the bin and happily playing with all of them. It's almost as if Jack is saying, 'so this is what life is supposed to be like! I'm so lucky to be able to enjoy every minute of it!' If any GSP deserved a great forever home, it's Jack. Jack is a super sweet senior gentleman (we think he's around 11) who enjoys napping near his favorite people after a little playtime with his toys or running around ... (Read More)the yard scouting for bunnies and squirrels. Jack is a tall boy who LOVES food (he will take advantage of unattended human food left within reach). He is very gentle and loves everyone he meets (dogs, cats, kids). Since Jack is an older boy, he is VERY hard of hearing and doesn't see very well, especially out of his left eye. We have found that he will come when we clap our hands, but he can't hear us call his name. Also, his bark sounds very hoarse and the vet suggested using a harness instead of a collar when walking Jack so no additional pressure is put on his larynx and windpipe. The condition of his teeth and the large callouses on his elbows indicate he probably spent his early life in an outdoor kennel. So it is understandable that Jack feels the need to make up for lost time and find the softest spots to lay. (Less)

He is a typical labby puppy. He's in the super silly hyper stage. He does well with other dogs of all ages and sizes. Loves to play (rip up) toys. Loves treats. Loves attention. My kiddos come to the office regularly and he does good with them. No food aggression. No kennel aggression. Does well on a leash but sure likes to run and play without limits but unfortunately we don't have a fenced area at office. He does ok with crate training but still has ... (Read More)accidents. He drinks tons of water and likes to pee pee when the mood strikes so outside time is needed quite a bit. We have had cats at office and he's curious of them but will not attack them.

Bullmastiff    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Blossom - This sweet Girl is looking for her special family to give her a second chance in life. She is looking for someone with a big heart, patience, love, and most importantly, unconditional acceptance. Blossom needs time and dedication. She has been through more than her share of heartache. Blossom is a puppy mill survivor. She has spent the first 3 years of her life in a puppy mill producing puppies. She has never had a chance, until now, to experience life outside of the puppy mill. She had no veterinary care and was never shown any love or kindness. She never learned to trust people. Blossom had very minimum physical ... (Read More)contact with people and has virtually no concept of what to expect, or what was expected of her other than producing puppies. Now that that life is behind her, she is learning how to just be a dog. Blossom is submissive with people, but eager to explore her new surroundings. As a result of being unsocialized, new situations and people scare her. It takes her a little while for her to come around. She is good with other dogs and would probably be ok with cats. Blossom would benefit from another well balanced dog that could continue to show her how to just be a dog. She is afraid of kids and would do best in a home with adults or older kids who understand how important it is to be patient with her. Blossom has made a lot of improvement in the past month and %BD in rescue and would love for someone to see all the potential she has and be patient enough to give her the chance to continue to blossom. Although, she had never been indoors until rescued, she has excellent house manners. Blossom is crate trained but likes to spend most of her time out of her crate. She runs when approach, but will come to me for treats and now waits at the door to get her paws wiped when coming in from outside. Blossom is up-to-date on vaccinations, sprayed, and micro-chipped. If you would like to give this sweet girl her new beginning please visit www.bullmastiffrescuers.org and complete an adoption application. (Less)

Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Pass! Male - About 12 weeks old Possibly Beage/Hound/Cattle Dog Pass was abandoned with his 3 siblings in a kill shelter in Tennessee. This shelter has very dedicated volunteers that network their dogs to find rescue. We took one look and knew that we needed to bring them to Illinois to find their forever families. They are all young and will need a family that is willing to love, housebreak and train them. We believe these pups may have some cattle dog in them so, previous experience with a herding breed and/or previous puppy experience is a plus! Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days ... (Read More)of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day.

    Meet Kick! Male DOB 3/14/15 Possibly Beagle/Hound/Cattle Dog Mix Kick was abandoned with his 3 siblings in a kill shelter in Tennessee. This shelter has very dedicated volunteers that network their dogs to find rescue. We took one look and knew that we needed to bring them to Illinois to find their forever families. Kick is such a sweetheart! He is fairly calm for a puppy and you will find him cozying up next to you when he is done playing. Speaking of playing, he loves to play with his chew toys and is currently in a foster home with his brother'|they play together and keep each other entertained. Kick gets along great with ... (Read More)children and loves other dogs. He is highly intelligent and shows a great aptitude for training as long as he is kept actively engaged at the task at hand. He is a smart boy in search of his forever family, and would love to have children or another dog to hang out with! Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day.

Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    We have had Rosie for two years and she is a very affectionate dog. She loves to just spend time with people cuddling on the couch or shadowing you around the house. She is good with our other dog, a very submissive male lab, but shows a bit too much interest in our cats. We have always supervised the interaction with Rosie and our three cats for that reason. We are looking for a family who can give Rosie the one on one attention that she needs. We love her but won't our new schedule feel like she is lacking the attention she craves.

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 

    Shabba is a very hyper and energetic dog. Good for people that like to stay active. Once he has had his workout he is very calm and gentle. He is very loyal to the people around him once he gets to know them. He is very timid and has his guard up to new comers but once he gets the trust he's the most loyal dog you can ever wish for. Due to long shift work hours I can't keep him no more it breaks my heart seeing him stuck in his cage. He needs somebody that will be there to play and exercise with him daily. Any questions feel free to text me at 312-614-9636 Jose. Thank you

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    07/15/15-----UPDATE: We are still looking for Diesel's new family!! (We just couldn't put bear to put him in a shelter on the 8th as planned).----Please help us find him a new home soon, as he is such a great boy, he just needs so much more 'people time' than our new (and unforeseen) work schedules allow!!!---Diesel is an extremely loving and affectionate pup!!! He is approximately 11 months old. It breaks our hearts to have to re-home him, but due to an extreme (and unforeseen) change in employment hours, we don't feel we can give him the 'out-of-cage' time that he deserves. He is crate trained, sits, gives paw, and is working on the ... (Read More)'down' command, as he has a tendency to jump when excited. Likes to play Frisbee, has been known to hog the covers and pillows, and LOVES Beggin' Strips treats (or 'Bacon' as he knows it). He is great with kids, but unknown about other dogs due to limited contact. Asking that ALL family members and other dogs meet & greet with him first to determine compatibility. We have been trying for over a month to find him a new family, with no luck. If not re-homed by Wed July 8, we will have no other option but to try to place him in a shelter.*****STILL AVAILABLE AS OF 7/15/15 (Less)

Animal ID: 15-089Candy (female)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Initial Bio 06/30/15: Candy is a beautiful little 6 year old female Yorkie who came to us at United Yorkie Rescue on June 27th. She was a breeder release and was probably used only for breeding and not as a pet so she is very scared and nervous. Any loud noises make her jump with fear. I have no doubt with loving and affection, she will come around. She wants to trust and come up with the other dogs for petting and rubbing but walks about half way up and then backs away and lingers at a distance only watching the other dogs. I can pick her up but she will not come to me. She will lie on my lap and sleep while I gently pet her. I don't think ... (Read More)it will long before I gain her trust. Her weight is around 5 pounds so she is tiny and frail. It would probably be best if she had a home with no small children who could pick her up and accidentally drop her. She gets along well with other dogs but I'm not sure about cats since she has not been around them that I am aware of. Candy loves to be outdoors on warm sunny days so a fenced in yard is a must. She already checked the perimeter of my fence looking for ways to escape but she was unsuccessful. She is microchipped in the event she would get lost, but we hope we never have to go there as many dangers exist outside the home environment for these tiny ones. I put Candy and her foster sister, Mandy in the play pen at night and they both cuddle down into their beds and sleep all night. She has accidents in the house once in a while but I think it is because she might have been caged quite often and not properly housebroken. She will do her business outdoors but she won't let you know when she needs to go out. We are working on that as well. Candy is a delightful little lady, very small and dainty. I know she will be the ultimate little love bug given time with plenty of love and affection. (Less)

Animal ID: 2907Chopper (male)

Treeing Walker Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chopper is patiently waiting for his forever home after being chosen from Aurora animal control, and welcomed into our foster home . He was being cared for there after being found as a stray and not claimed. He is approximately 2 years old, 60#'s, and still has a lot of puppy energy! He is doing fantastic out of the shelter and in a home environment. Chopper is still cautious with strangers, but has made himself at home with our dog and kids. He would thrive with another dog as he is a very playful pup! He is house and crate trained, and now sleeps on the floor in our room. He is neutered, knows basic commands such as sit, come and ... (Read More)paw. He is a quick learner and is picking up on a few other commands. Chopper is not food or toy protective and is a submissive dog, always on the look out for his new best friend. He benefits from daily exercise/interaction as most dogs do. He would do well with kids, but would need firm parents to correct him if he jumps. Chopper would be a great addition to any family!

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-01-00124Bron (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Bron! Male Border Collie/Lab Mix (Med Size) DOB 6/16/14 Bron came to us from Alabama where he was found abandoned. It may sound odd to say that he was lucky to be sent to a high kill shelter, but he is, because this shelter does everything it can to find rescue for their dogs. We brought him to Illinois and is in a foster home. His foster has this to say about him: Bron is a very sweet friendly, gentle dog. He takes treats very gently, even from strangers. He also eats slowly. No scarfing here. We (including my 6 year old son) can take toys out of his mouth with no problem (generally using the command 'out'). He is just so very ... (Read More)gentle. He loves to Chew, Chew, Chew and can't yet be trusted alone in the house due to his chewing, but he is eager to learn and will soon learn what is his to chew. He loves to snuggle and will literally stop everything he is doing when you rub his belly! He responds to the commands 'out, sit, down and stay'. Whoever had him before us either did an awesome job training him, or he is just an obedient dog. Bron did not particularly like his bath, but he also didn't protest horribly. He went in the crate (slightly hesitant) and whined maybe 3 times'|then was perfectly content after that through the night. Not a peep. He did not potty in his crate at all. He is pretty well house broken and we have not had any accidents. He does very well in the car. He likes to smell out the window, but most of the time will just lay down. While walking, he pulls slightly, but if you start jogging, he jogs right alongside you. It's like he has one stride'|fast! He has supersonic hearing and is interested in every single noise. He will whine if he hears a noise outside until you let him out to see what it is. He will dart out at a squirrel or person or animal nearby. It doesn't seem to be an aggressive dart, just very intent interest. Very. He is also working on leash manners as he is currently a pretty strong puller. He barks at other animals or people but otherwise he doesn't bark much at all. Personally, with my extremely limited experience, I believe he is a great family dog with a great temperament. He does need a good amount of exercise daily as he is pretty energetic and gets bored easily, and this will also help to keep that chewing at bay. He would do best with an active family that includes him in their activities and would not do well crated for long periods of time due to his energy level. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details.

Must go to a home without children as he bit our toddler so has to be carefully placed. Should be fine with teenagers and older though. Would be a wonderful pet as long as he is in the right environment. Has had lots of obedience training and listens very well. Loves ...
