Rescue Me ID: 17-10-22-00438Thor (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Malnourished, Fearful/Anxious 

    Thor is a very sweet dog. He loves human affection!! He should not be in a home with cats and not too sure about other dogs. He has been living with a small 25lb mix breed for the past month and had done well with him. Not sure about children either. He was found as a stray so not sure about his background. He is a very loving but anxious dog and I don't have the heart to take him to a shelter. He is a project for sure but I could see him being an amazing dog with the right person.

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

    PLEASE READ THE COMPLETE BIO AND SUBMIT AN APPLICATION (available at www.bullmastiffrescuers.net under Forms to Download) BEFORE CONTACTING US. WE DO NOT RESPOND TO TELEPHONE INQUIRIES. My name is Camo, I'm a male bullmastiff mix between 4 and 5 years; up to date on vaccines, neutered, heartworm negative, crate trained, house trained, and I weigh 96 pounds. I've been told by the Vet I'm a little pudgy, so I'm working on my figure. My daddy had to give me up due to his health issues, he couldn't take care of me any longer. It was sad saying goodbye. I have lots of energy, if my forever home doesn't have a fenced yard, I will need to go on ... (Read More)longs walks every day. I'm so excited to meet new people, my tail wags a mile a minute. I could knock little kids over, so it's best that my forever family has kids over ten. I love to play with toys - bones, stuffies, nylabones, you name it! I am very fearful of other dogs, and I need to be the only dog in the home. But I'm really good with cats, I let them be the boss, I don't want to mess with those nails! I'm learning to sit on command, stay, and come. I'm very good behind gates, in fact, my Foster Mom has started to let me sleep all night loose with my crate open and I just love, love, love sleeping on the sofa all night! I'm trying so hard to learn not to take food off the counters, but it's hard if I am tempted! I sure hope I find my forever family, I just want to be loved and find my place in the world. My foster family says I'm such a sweet, loving boy and loves me laying by them on the sofa. If your family would like to provide me with the home I deserve, please complete the adoption application at http://www.bullmastiffrescuers.net. My tax-deductible adoption fee is $400 and I am being fostered in IL. However, don't let my location be a barrier. If you think I am the bullmastiff for your family, BRI can arrange my transport!

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Swifty is a beautiful, snuggly sweet, gentle and loving two-year-old, 58-pound, female, chocolate and vanilla pit bull terrier looking for a loving guardian. Swifty is full of kisses and tails wags for all the people she meets. And, if you sit on the floor she'll jump right in your lap for a cuddle session. She was rescued from Chicago Animal Care & Control and is currently living in a foster home in the Shorewood/Joliet area. Swifty is a low-energy girl who enjoys short walks and short spurts of play. She'll play fetch for a little while or go for a short walk around the neighborhood. She prefers longer walks if you take her out of her ... (Read More)own neighborhood. She loves to explore. She is very responsive and loves to learn new things. She already knows the commands sit, down, paw, roll-over and stay. She also enjoys road trips! She's joined her foster mom on six-hour road trips with no issue at all. She is housebroken and crate-trained and stays in her crate when her mom leaves the home. Swifty is great with children and has never shown any aggression at all to a human. She loves loves loves people, but she was never socialized with other animals. So, we are looking for a home with no other pets. She'd love a home with a fenced in yard in a quiet neighborhood. She is sometimes difficult to walk in congested areas because she can be dog-reactive. But, if you just cross the street when you see another dog approaching, that behavior is not a big deal. She's really a home-body happy to love her family and stick to her own fenced-in yard. Swifty is extremely healthy, spayed, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested, and up-to-date on vaccines. To meet and possibly adopt her, please contact her adoption counselor Kat at kbudrean@hotmail.com to meet her. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. She comes complete with professional training to help her transition to her new home. She is currently being fostered in the Shorewood/Joliet, Illinois area. But she can travel up to two hour's distance to meet her potential approved adopter! (Less)

After play time, I like to curl up for a nap or cuddle and relax. I almost forgot to mention, I am crate trained, but because of my age, I should not be left in one for extended periods of time. As long as my humans take me out after I wake up and after I eat, I will not go to the bathroom in the house. I am about 85%-95% ... (Read More)potty trained and working hard to get that up to 100%. 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. Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@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. (Less)

    Ok, so he is 12 years old but don't let that fool you-Cooper has a lot of vim and vigor! What a perfect combination, the spunk to keep us and go for walks and be active with his family, but the maturity to not be over the top exuberant. Cooper likes the finer things in life whether it be a brisk walk in the crisp fall air or a warm nap on a snuggly blanket, and he is not slouch when it comes time for a nice dinner! Cooper was given up by his family due to his seasonal allergies. Apparently they flare up this time of year and in the spring. He gets a little itchy but nothing to serious. We gave him a soothing bath and if it gets bad a little ... (Read More)benadryl helps. We have many dogs with similar issues, my own bulldog is 10 x worse, thats a bulldog for you. This season seems to really be tough on dogs and people with allergies. But, Cooper is doing just fine. He is a happy guy, loves his people and is doing well with the other dogs. At first he was not too happy about the rowdiness of others but has learned to accept it. He will do well in a more peaceful home than ours. He probably had a nice quiet life and does appreciate quiet times. His adoption fee is $99. Please email Kristine at joysparrpows@gmail.com. Internal Notes (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Chloe is a beautiful, shy, sweet, smart, gentle and loving ten-year-old, 19-pound, female, white poodle looking for a loving guardian. Chloe loves going for walks and romps in the yard. She loves to play with other dogs but really prefers to be the one and only object of your affection in the home. She will guard her human against other dogs and people when given the opportunity. But, she can easily be managed and live with other dogs and cats. Chloe is typically well-mannered and housebroken, although she occasionally has accidents. She also barks at or runs from men and children who she is afraid of. This beautiful dog bonds ... (Read More)incredibly tightly and lovingly with her female person. She's not much of a family dog because men and children stress her out. She has never bitten or even snapped. She just warns with a growl, bark or runs away and hides. She is a mellow, affectionate girl who deserves a quiet loving home with lots of belly rubs and love. Chloe suffers from allergies and anxiety, which results at times in a rash. She is otherwise a healthy senior, spayed, up to date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. To meet and possibly adopt her, please contact sheri@petraits.com for an adoption application. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits rescued pets. She is being fostered in Evanston, Illinois. (Less)

    miles Is an amazing dog who deserves to be treated like royalty! He is fun and smart and active and loves to cuddle and have popcorn and a movie. He is NOT a fan of uniforms and I cannot stress enough that he will attack the mailman so you have to either be home to control him or keep him where he cannot see or he may knock things over and scare the dickens out of people all the while peeing on the floor because he is scared to death. So if you can handle a little bit of doggie psych 101 then you might just be the person for Miles. I am VERY picky who he goes to as you might imagine after five years this is like having a child taken from me. ...

Lhasa Apso Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Low Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi there! My name is Corgan, and I am an extra special dog looking for a special family who will give me a loving forever home. I am an super sweet, low-energy 8-year-old Lhasa Apso mix, and I pack a lot of love into my small 18-pound body. If I could humble brag for a moment, I am quite the looker! All your neighbors will stop and say 'My, what a handsome friend you have there!' when we go for leisurely strolls, and they won't be wrong! I have white fur with cream splashes across my coat. But you were immediately drawn into my ... (Read More)incredible, big button eyes and giant smile, right? They are my best features, I think, because they perfectly show off my loving, kind, and happy-go-lucky personality! My friends from Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where my previous owners surrendered me. I was so happy to leave the busy, overwhelming shelter behind and settle in for some rest and relaxation in my foster home. Since I am a bit older, I am past all the hyper puppy playtime and prefer to find a comfy spot next to my favorite people for a nap. I think I could win an Olympic medal for my napping skills, so if you are looking for a quiet, calm buddy I am definitely the gentleman for you! You might even think my naps are as funny as my foster mommy does, because I lightly snore and stretch my back legs out like a frog. And my favorite activity in the whole wide world is definitely eating my yummy food and treats! I am a foodie, and get so happy when it is snack time. I also enjoy slow, leisurely walkies around the block to get my exercise and do my potty business. I get along well with dogs of all sizes, and even get along with my kitty cat foster siblings! I have excellent house manners and am potty trained (I know to go outside but will also use potty pads if you need to be gone for long hours!) I do fine napping and relaxing while foster mommy is at work. I think I am a pretty perfect quiet roommate! Remember when I said I am an extra special boy? I have a few health issues that I think it is important for my potential adopters to know about. I was in some rough shape before Fetching Tails saved me, but I am getting all the medical care I need now to be happy and healthy! I am deaf, but that doesn't really affect my day-to-day happiness. I also receive medications for my heart and eyes now and am feeling much better because of them! I have a few growths on my back end that my doctor doesn't think should be removed at this time. My foster mommy can fill out in more about my health issues, but I hope you still think I am the sweet, loving boy for you! I have lots of life and love left to share with my special forever family! So if you think you could be the family I have been waiting so long for, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon so we can start our happily ever after together! Love, Corgan ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS, NO EXCEPTIONS: *Be at least 21 years of age *Live in a 50-mile radius of Itasca, within the Illinois border *Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household *Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) *Have a valid ID with current address *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment *ADOPTION FEE: $75 If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org; please make sure you fill in every required field/question or your submission will not go through.

Catahoula    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Leroy is a very high energy dog ready for someone who can give him a lot of attention. Someone who can go for a lot of walks/runs with him or has a fenced in area for him would be best. He lives with smaller dogs and has always been great with them. We have 2 kids and he has been good with them. He is currently on a mild anti anxiety medication but maybe with the right amount of excercise and attention would not need to be on it any longer. He has been attacked by 2 different pitbulls so he is not a fan of any stocky dog that resembles a pitbull, boxer, etc. He is current on his rabies vaccine, but that is the only vaccine we give him. He ... (Read More)had a wellness check and blood test within the year and Dr.s say he is very healthy and looks great. He is crate trained/house trained. Leroy is a good dog and as hard as it would be to re-home him I believe he could have a better life with the right owner. (Less)

Sadly, Beau was relinquished to Chicago Animal Care and Control for snapping at family members who were visiting their grandma.

    Apollo is a very handsome, sweet, intelligent, loving, protective purebred poodle that is just over 18 months old. We do have his AKC papers. We have had him since he was 9 weeks old and we adore him, however, he doesn't do well with little kids or a lot of chaos and is sometimes nervous when he meets new people as well. He is the perfect dog for a calm home with teenagers or older, that can give him good regular exercise and doesn't entertain often as he barks incessantly, pees and gets very nervous around new people, male and female. He truly is will make an AMAZING companion in the right situation. Thank you!

    We all have our special and unique preferences in not just the people we surround ourselves with but also our 4 footed companions. The most popular dogs that come thru rescue are typically your low shedding breeds, you know the snuggly dogs like poodles, shih tzu's, maltese, yorkies...Ya, they are cute but not for everyone. On the flip side not everyone wants a little 'fru fru' dog, perhaps your looking for something a little more macho, a Sylvester Stallone of dogs yet compact and portable? Well, you have come to the right place!!!! Our little man Kix is your fella. He is just 3 years old and only 12 pounds and even has the tough guy walk ... (Read More)down pat. Yep, you can strut him down the street, hold your head up high, this is not fru fru kinda boy. (nothing against fru fru's!!) Kix doesn't really walk tho, he struts. It is one in a million, head held high and well placed kicks to the side, very regal and commanding. He is actually a very loving boy, although he does not like to admit it. He will come up to us, be all happy and while we are giving him his much desired pets and atta boys he will growl like he just needs to let us know he is no pushover. No-he has not been nippy or even tried-he is just a grumbler. Although he is happy and loving he is not a snuggly guy, Kix is perfectly content being your best pal, lets just not get all kissy. We are looking for an adult household that has previous dog experience. His adoption fee is $175. Please email Kristine at joysparrows@gmail.. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    In regards to again, something really do get finer with time. As Eartha Kitt once said, 'Aging has a wonderful beauty and we should have respect for that.' Couldn't agree more, think of all the things in our lives that are better with age: wisdom, blue jeans, whiskey and wine, empathy, cast iron pans, love, and of course memories-and so much more! Let's put dogs on that list, there is nothing like the love of an old dog, they have come to appreciate the finer things in life as well. Nothing as sweet as a long nap in the sun, a comfy bed, a leisurely stroll thru the neighborhood, a warm meal, a belly rub or scratch behind the ears, and of ... (Read More)course the sound of your footsteps entering the room, priceless. Aki had all of that, in fact her family said she was the BEST. She loves everyone, was raised around other dogs, cats, kids and is a happy wiggly girl. It is sad they had to give her up but things change, they ended up working long hours and sweet Aki ended up being left alone for very long hours. They did want her to have a home that would appreciate this very special girl. Aki is 13 years old but in good shape, a little stiff in the joints, but hey, aren't we all eventually! She is very housebroken and incredibly well mannered. The shelter staff that took her in fell in love with her, Aki is a very, very special girl. We want to help her on her journey to find that new love where another family can appreciate this sweet l' girl and she will return that love ten fold! She is a big girl, about 80 pounds, perfect for snuggling for those long winter months we know are coming! Her adoption fee is $99, or a donation would be great. We have plenty of food, treats and some warm coats to send with Aki to begin her next chapter!! Please email Kristine at joysparrows@gmail.com. (Less)

    Meet Copper!! Beagle Mix 9 yrs old Approx. 23 lbs. Copper was surrendered to Safe Haven from a family who no longer wanted to care for him. He is an excellent dog, just needs a new family to call his own! Copper is housebroken and waits by the back door to let you know he needs to go outside. He is great with children and other dogs. He is a SNUGGLE BUG and would love to find a family who will let him sleep in bed. Copper has a little bit of anxiety when it comes to going into a crate, so his foster family hasn't been using it with him. He also wasn't a huge fan of car rides, but with some training and treats, he has been getting ... (Read More)better! Copper is an amazing pup who will fit in nicely with many family situations. He loves, loves, loves to snuggle. However, he really is up for anything. He had never been walked but quickly figured out that the leash means we are going out to walk and is digging his walks now. He also LOVES going to the dog park to romp and play with other dogs. Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee).

    Meet Flashy! 1-2 yrs old Approx. 9 lbs. Yorkie/Chihuahua Mix Flashy is a spunky little southern girl from TN. She was found running as a stray and wasn't reclaimed. She traveled to IL where she has been living with her foster family for about 2 months now. Flashy is a quiet little mite. She's got an AWESOME mohawk that gives her that feisty look. She enjoys time in her crate during the day and at night time. She likes to chew on rawhides is slowly finding joy in dog toys. Flashy enjoys lap time and a good cuddle with her people. Flashy lives in a foster home with other small female dogs and gets along great with them. She also does ... (Read More)fine with medium and large dogs. Flashy does have guarding tendencies when it comes to both her crate and her food, she does not like other dogs to be near her crate or food. Flashy is housebroken and leash trained. She enjoys going on walks outside. When Flashy was checked out by our vets, it was determined she has a Grade 2 heart murmur.

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-30-00270Zoloft (male)

Anatolian Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Looking for a patient big dog lover!! This is Zoloft, an Anatolian Shepard, Great Dane mix who is roughly 9 years old. Zoloft has some aggression and anxiety issues, but when worked through is really just one of the biggest, cuddliest, babies you could possibly meet. He can be intimidating to those that don't know him, because of his bark and his tendency to jump up on windows and doors to get a better view of who is coming around. He is hyper vigilant to his surroundings and if often trying to warn you of squirrels that pass by, or stray cats that get too close. With that in mind he does not do too well with smaller animals, especially ... (Read More)cats. He would probably do best as the sole animal of the house, but other dogs his size he will learn to get along with them as long as there are pack walks and treat training involved. Zoloft has an enormous heart; he just tends to let his anxiety take over. He needs a kind, patient owner who has the time to be with him, walk with him, and train him how to be calm in everyday situations. He is potty trained, and knows how to sit, lay down, and wait on command, though he may need some extra encouragement to do so from time to time, meaning that he can be incredibly stubborn. Zoloft would do best in a larger environment and with a gated back yard. He is pretty talented in getting out of small openings, so making sure that there are no breaches in the fence is a must. He does ok with older children but should be supervised around them when toys or extra special treats are involved just in case. The reason we are looking to re-home Zoloft is because at this time we do not have the availability to be with him as much as he needs, and our own schedules are crazy, so building a proper routine for him has not been an option. We really don't want to see him spend his last days in a no kill shelter, due to his issues, so that is why we wanted to be upfront with as much information as possible on what to expect. Please feel free to message me with any further questions, and pass along this, or share this so we can try to find him a better home. Thank you for your time. - with Bob Jeter. (Less)
