    Mutt Rescue Information: Mutts are some of the most loveable of all the types of dogs one can adopt. What distinguishes a mutt is that they are not born from any single breed, but rather, are a mix of two or more breeds. While a mutt might not be able to be shown at an AKC show, they tend to be healthier, more secure and live longer than most purebred dogs.

    Mutt Trivia: Mutts are also sometimes called mongrels, crossbreeds or Heinz 57 dogs. Genetic tests are now available to determine the ancestry of many mixed breed dogs.

Fox Terrier Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    She is our Sunshine, our little Sunshine, and boy does she make us happy! Little Sunny is a 12 week old wire-haired terrier mix puppy who arrived at ACL as a stray. She is the cutest, wiggliest, sweetest, goofiest, most squeezable little puppy you've ever met! Our best guess says she'll grow to between 25 - 30 pounds as an adult - but she's still just a pipsqueak right now! Sunny has been in foster care, where she loved everyone she met, including a grumpy resident cat. She's great with kids, and she'd love an active home with lots of fun to be had. Sunny is making great progress on housetraining and cratetraining, and her adopters should be ... (Read More)ready and willing to continue all that great work! Puppies like Sunny are a total blast, but they're a lot of work, too - Sunny promises to make all the work worth with by always turning gray skies blue! (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    If your idea of relaxation is staring out at the ocean with a cool drink in your hand, our resident Kaia might be the one for you! Kaia means 'sea' in Hawaiian, and we think this girl as the same tranquility-inducing properties! She's a one year old itty bitty pittie mix - she's only 32 pounds! She has a unique dilute brindle coat and the biggest, saddest, sweetest eyes around. Kaia came to ACL from a local animal control where she had been surrendered when the owners lost their home.

Kaia is good with other dogs, but she does prefer little dogs who don't intimidate her. Because she's a little on the nervous side here at the shelter, she'll do best with kids 6 and up. We don't know how she feels about cats. We do know that a little sweetness is all it takes to unlock Kaia's true nature - love! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-25-00166Chandler (female)

Beagle Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Welcome back to ACL, Chandler! This pretty, soft, sweet 3 year old hound mix was originally adopted from us when he was just 8 weeks old. Sadly, his adopters dropped him off at a shelter in a different state, saying they had to move and couldn't take him with. Thanks to the miracle of microchips and a dedicated volunteer, we were able to drive Chandler back to Illinois so we could have a second chance and finding him that forever home we promised him. Chandler is a sweet, somewhat timid dog who opens up into an energetic, fun-loving guy with a little gentleness. He loves other dogs and is very interested in joining a pack or making daycare ... (Read More)or play groups a part of his life. Because Chandler is a hound/beagle mix, he may have some anxiety when being left alone for long periods - hounds are pack animals, so they struggle being totally on their own. A home with some patience, someone who is home a lot, or a home with another animal would be the perfect fit. He'll do fine with gentle kids of all ages, though we suspect cats are not a good fit for him. Chandler truly deserves the perfect fit - could it be you? (Less)

    *SPECIAL NEEDS -- DEAF* This handsome boy with the sweet face is Ghoul! He is deaf, but he is unbelievably smart and has already learned quite a few hand signals since he has been here. He is a sweet and cuddly boy with a lot of love to give. Ghoul is around 2-3 years old. He is looking for the perfect furever home with a family that knows how to work with a large, deaf dog. He is very strong at almost 70 pounds, so training is very important, and would even be an amazing bonding experience with his future owner. Ghoul tested well with other dogs, but like any deaf dog, he would do best in a home with a dog willing to give him his space when ... (Read More)he is sleeping or not aware they are near. Ghoul would also prefer a home without cats. (Less)

    From a friend: 'I was out walking Libby a couple weeks ago when a man did a double take at us and pulled over. He noticed I had a pitbull, and decided to ask for my help. He told me that he owns a healthy, 1-year-old pit that he needs to rehome. He is going through a divorce, and needs to get rid of his dog ASAP. He was devastated telling me the story because he loves this dog with his whole heart. Milo is a healthy, one-year-old neutered male pitbull. He loves everyone and everything. His owner said he's wonderful with other dogs, people, children and cats. He sounds perfect. The owner is doing everything he can to avoid taking him to our ... (Read More)full city shelter where he'll be at high risk for euthanasia. Please share this post, and help me find Milo a loving home!!! I told the owner I will do everything in my power to help. I'm telling you - there's almost nothing better than being a pitbull owner. Do you want a dog that shows soooo much love and LOVES TO CUDDLE?!?' MJane (Less)

Doug (aka Dougie Fresh which just makes it waaay better) admittedly has a lot of energy initially, but this sweetest guy calmed down remarkably once we started on our walk, and almost every time I reached down to pet him, he'd either press into me or throw himself on the ground for some belly lovins lol.

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-19-00015Cookie and Luke (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hello hello! Don't worry, you aren't seeing double: we really are a dynamic duo that is looking for a forever home together! My name is Cookie and my sweet son is Luke; if you are looking for not one, but two amazing, loving, and endlessly entertaining BFFs, please consider making us a part of your family because we are available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation and Chicagoland Dog Rescue. These two groups joined together to save our lives when we showed up at Chicago Animal Care & Control because they could see how ... (Read More)bonded we are and had to give us a new chance at a happily ever after! Could that be with you? I am a 2-year-old, gorgeous Shar-Pei/American Pit Bull mix, and my dashingly handsome son Luke is about 1-year-old. I am about 35 pounds and have beautiful white and tan fur; I use my gorgeous chocolate eyes to stare adoringly at my favorite people. Luke is about 45 pounds with white and brindle swirls in his fur. We are a good-looking pair, but our personalities are even better! I am the more outgoing of the two of us (Luke is young and looks to me for instruction; who can blame him for being such a momma's boy when his momma is as awesome as me?) Luke can be shy with new people, but once he sees me say hello he opens up very quickly. We have made quite a few new human friends; everyone tells us how much they love us! We are also having a great time at our foster home: we have a big fenced yard there and we LOVE to romp and play in the wide, open space. So we would have to have a fenced yard at our forever home to enjoy. We like to be active and are a little mischievous, so having a big space to play is definitely ideal! When we are all tired out from our play sessions, we love to curl up together with our foster mommy and dole out lots and lots of sweet kisses. We are becoming good roommates and working to improve our manners more and more every day! We would love a patient family who will continue to help us be our best selves. We are working on perfecting potty training and learning to let foster mommy know when we have to go do our business. With continued practice and a consistent schedule, we will have it down in no time! We are crate trained and can be left to hang out with each other for up to eight hours in our extra large crate to entertain ourselves and take some cuddly naps together. Since we are young, when foster mommy comes home we like to spend lots of time playing and burning our energy in fun ways. We have even learned the command sit already and would love to learn more! Fetching Tails Foundation likes to encourage all adopters to attend training classes with their new pups, and we think we would greatly benefit from the chance to socialize, bond with our new family, and see just how smart we can become by learning all the fun tricks and commands we hear they teach you in class. Foster mommy says we take corrections well and learn fast, so I bet we would be the class co-valedictorians in no time! We also love car rides, so we would love to go on adventures with you! If you think two dogs are better than one, and want to give us our happily ever after together, please contact our friends at Fetching Tails and CDR soon and tell them you want double the fun with Cookie and Luke! We can't wait to start our lives and adventures with you! XOXO, Cookie (and Luke!) If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Yorkie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Why hello there! You look like you have been searching for a sweet, soulful, and sensitive new love to call your own. Lucky for you, I am waiting for you! My name is Steffie and I am a 2-year-old yorkie/wire terrier mix who is available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I have gorgeous caramel-colored long silky hair, and I weigh about 12 pounds (though I could stand to gain a couple more because I am on the thin side) so I am the perfect size for some quality lap snuggles! Fetching Tails Foundation saved me ... (Read More)through the CRISP program at Chicago Animal Care & Control. My previous owners brought me to the shelter to surrender me because they could no longer take care of me, but thankfully FTF volunteers were there that day and I was able to go to a foster home immediately instead of going inside the busy, overwhelming shelter. I was shy when I first got to my foster home and took a little bit of time to come out of my shell, but now I enjoy cuddling with my foster mommy and getting my belly rubbed. I think I would do best in a forever home without small children since I can be shy and prefer calm. I get along with other small dogs, but would be content as your one and only friend as well since my favorite activities including cuddling, snuggling and napping next to you on the couch! Nothing makes me happier than spending time with the people I love and being right by their side! I have great house manners, too. I am potty trained, and don't need to be crated when my foster mommy goes to work. In fact, I prefer not to be crated, so I am extra well-behaved and don't get into anything I shouldn't. I would do fine in an apartment or house since I am well behaved and don't really need a fenced yard to run around in; just a few nice walkies every day and I will be a happy girl! Overall, I am a darling, adorable sweetheart once I come out of my shell and know you will love me and treat me like the little princess I am! If I sound like I could be the little lady for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them Steffie sent you! I cant wait to start our happy 'tail' together! Love and snuggles, Steffie If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

    Get ready to fall in love with your very own Juliet! This girl is a true lover - nothing is better to her than snuggles. Juliet is a 6 year old chihuahua with a sad face who arrived at ACL as a stray. She came in with another chihuahua, Romeo, and we initially thought they might be bonded. Juliet was very shy at first, so we sent both dogs to a foster home together. Guess what? Juliet isn't shy at all, and she isn't bonded with Romeo - now that she's relaxed, she could care less what he's up to! She just wants to cuddle on your lap and have a snooze. Juliet is the ultimate lap dog - she'll do well in a low-key household that would enjoy a ... (Read More)canine companion for tv watching and short daily walks. She can be timid at first, but she shrugs that off with just a little love thrown her way. She'll do fine with other dogs, cats, and gentle kids 8 and up.

    Hi, my name is Atticus. I'm not sure how I ended up at a big, crowded shelter...all I know is I'm excited that AHF is going to get me out of here and try to find me a foster or forever home. I really hope someone wants me to be a part of their family. I'm a good boy who gets along great with everyone, including kids and other dogs. My shelter picture isn't very good, but shelter workers and volunteers tell me I'm handsome. They think I am a boxer-beagle mix, around 3 years old. I join the AHF family on Saturday. Please let Jackie know if you're interested in meeting me and maybe even taking me home. You can contact her at ... (Read More)jaccapps@sbcglobal.net .

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    My husband and I adopted Bailey out of CACC about a month ago. She's a wonderful dog and I'm sick over having to give her up. She is very smart, has a mellow personality and a nice, medium energy level. She's excellent in the home and gets along great with other dogs. She is house trained, crate trained, takes treats gently, walks well on a leash, and knows sit, down, stay, and come. She's learning paw and go pee (eliminate on command). After the first few days, she's quiet in the house and doesn't bark or whine for attention. She is spayed, micro-chipped, up to date on her shots, and just came from the vet, where she had a clean bill of ... (Read More)health with the exception of a common parasite, which she was treated for. Beauty is very endearing and well behaved. She loves to snuggle and spend time with her humans, but she is insecure and is displaying some guarding signs (growling and barking) at guests (including children) within the home and within common areas of the condo building. She is just doing what she thinks is right by protecting the home, but out of an abundance of caution, we are seeking a less-stressful environment for her away from children. She does not display guarding behaviors when it's just us, or on the street when on walks, and she lights up when she sees other dogs. She would love to be in a home with another dog, and there's a good chance she would learn confidence if she shared a home with a well-adjusted dog. She currently lives with two cats and gets along great with them. Here's a link to a video of her playing with another dog at CACC: https://youtu.be/lSSxPpZs-5s Please consider rescuing Bailey. She is a great girl and will make an amazing pet. The adoption fee is to make sure she is taken care of and loved. We will donate it to the shelter. Bailey comes with her bed, easy-walk harness, collar, leash and toys. (Less)

He's perfectly house broken and wonderful on a leash. His greatest joy in life is laying in your lap and playing with toys. He gets insulin twice a day but it's incredible easy to give and he's an angel for the pokes. He had a rough start in life so he needs someone patient and possibly familiar with the breed. He loves other dogs, has not been cat tested and should only be around older kids.

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-12-00145Dash (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dash needs a long term foster (or adopter) NOW. He was saved from death row almost a week ago and there has been no interest at all from anyone. His emergency short-term foster can't keep him and he needs a home by the weekend. Dash is 10 years old and very sweet. He still has energy for a senior and does have some separation anxiety issues so someone home often is ideal. He's a bit too interested in kitties. He is fully vetted and healthy and currently located in Champaign area but can likely be transported. PLEASE consider adding Dash to your home as this is urgent. He was already dumped once by his family who had him since a puppy and ... (Read More)I refuse to let him become homeless again. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    There's a rockstar in our midst - Levon! He's got a rockstar name and rockstar personality. Levon is a big goofball of a shepherd mix who loves nothing more than...everything! He's about a year and a half old, so he's in prime territory for play time, training time, and lots of fun. Levon is a little unmannered for his age - he's just a big teenager! - so he'd prefer a home that wants to give him some training and leadership. Levon is a super intelligent guy, so he' sure to take to training like a pro! Because of his size and strength, he'll do best with kids 12 and up. He's a little forward with other dogs, so we'd have to see how he does. ... (Read More)No cats, please! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-11-00169Reo (male)

Cocker Spaniel Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind, Deaf 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi, Reo here, and you have probably heard about me...I don't mean that to sound vain, it is just that I sort of became internet famous when my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation rescued me! Back at the end of January, two Chicago police officers found me tied to a fence looking like a hot mess, and my sad story garnered a lot of attention and support. Thanks to many generous donations and lots of loving TLC, I am fully recovered from my injuries and am ready to find a forever home! So I think it is high time for me to tell you ... (Read More)a little bit about the 'real me' and what I love about life! My humans believe I am a cockapoo mix around 10 years of age, but aren't sure what else I could be mixed with. To be honest with you, I look like I am mixed with a teddy bear: I have fluffy toffee-colored hair and it is so soft to the touch; my foster family can't help but snuggle with me when they look at me and I totally dig it! I love to eat and am now tipping the scales at 23 pounds. Foster mommy says that I probably shouldn't get any heavier so she is regulating how many treats I get these days to help me keep a healthy figure. But she knows how much I love to snack (it is one of my favorite activities!) now that I am receiving high-quality, healthy food for the first time in a very long time, so I get a few small meals through the day every few hours to keep me happy. I am also very unique and one-of-a-kind because I now have a permanent happy, winky face! I had to have one of my eyes removed because of trauma, and I am feeling SO much better now that it is gone! I have very limited sight in my remaining eye (it has a cataract), but I adapt very quickly to my surroundings and figure out the layout quickly. So what am I looking for in a forever home? That is a very good question! The most important thing to me is that I have humans that I can be around all the time. I do not like to be left alone, and like at least one of my humans to be nearby so I feel safe. Since I am mostly deaf as well, I need my humans to touch me or lightly pull on my leash every once in awhile so I know they are still with me. Maybe a retired couple who is home a lot would enjoy my company? I enjoy car rides so I could even go along with you on errands. I would also love to have a fenced yard that I can explore. I love to spend as much time outside as possible; I hop around (as you might remember from the news stories about me, I am missing a paw on my back leg...it doesn't bother me and I have adapted to get around pretty easily! My foster family also says I am very fast when I want to be!) and sniff all the fun smells; I also love to roll in the grass and just take a nap on my outdoor dog bed! I get along better with calm dogs, but would also be content as your one and only canine companion. I even get along with kitties if you have a feline friend or two! I have great house manners: I am totally potty trained and let my humans know I need to go potty by going to the door and barking. I don't chew on things I am not supposed to, and other than being outside and snacking, my favorite activity is taking a nap on the couch with my person or on the floor near her feet. I think it might be better if my forever home is a single-family house instead of a condo or townhouse because I kind of 'tell stories' a lot to let my humans know if I need something, and I would hate to bother the neighbors too much. Overall, I am a very loving, very happy cuddly little guy, and after the life I have had, I would more than anything love a forever home with humans who will dote on me and provide me the love I have missed and longed for for so long. If you think you could be the special family willing to give a special older gentleman like me the perfect home, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation and tell them Reo is the handsome fellow for you! Cuddles and kisses, Reo If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-11-00161Dixie (female)

Flat-Coated Retriever Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, 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 Dixie, and if you are looking for an extra special, devoted, and fun-loving gal, you should be very excited to meet me! I am a 3-year-old Flat-Coated Retriever mix, which means I am a pretty gorgeous girl, if I could be so humble! I have luxurious, long silky licorice black hair, and soulful, loving eyes that let you know I am your forever girl! I am a little lady, too: at my last weigh-in, I was about 25 pounds. My foster momma is trying to help me fatten up a bit, but I for sure will be less than 40 ... (Read More)pounds when I am at my ideal weight. You know what that means? I am the perfect size for cuddles on your lap! I was saved from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where I was brought as a stray with some pretty bad injuries. My foster mommy's heart broke when she heard my story and immediately offered to take me under her wing and give me a safe place to recover so I happily made my way to my new life with Fetching Tails Foundation! I had a badly fractured jaw...nobody knows how it happened, but for the past month I have worn a wrap bandage around my face to help my jaw heal correctly. I am so easygoing that it hasn't bothered me at all, and I still love to give kisses! And my jaw has healed beautifully! I had an older fracture in my back leg as well that healed on its own; I think it makes me extra cute because I have a unique little hop to my step when I am running and playing with my doggie foster brother. I have put the past behind me and am seriously loving life now in my foster home. And I hear that soon I will have a forever family to call my own, it is just amazing! When I think of my forever home, I think it would be neat to have an active, affectionate family just like me who will enjoy playtime as well as snuggle time. I like to have a good time, running around the fenced yard at my foster home, and then when I come inside I immediately curl up next to foster mommy or daddy on the couch for pets and snuggles. Did I mention yet that I love to be pet? If foster mommy or daddy stops petting me, I nudge them with my head to remind them my belly still needs to be rubbed. I get along with everyone I meet, including other dogs (I love my two doggie foster brothers; they are older and I respect when they get tired and don't want to hang out with me anymore) and I even made friends with the resident kitty cat! I am also an inquisitive girl and would love a family that will keep teaching me about the big, fun world! I have been learning how to walk on a leash, and now I love my neighborhood walks with foster mommy: it is so much fun to sniff all the incredible smells and explore the world! I am also working on commands including sit, stay, down, and come. I think it would be a lot of fun to take a training class with my forever family so we can see how much more we can learn together! I bet we could be top of the class in no time! I sound pretty amazing, don't I? If a girl who loves everything about life -- from playing to exploring to curling up on the couch to watch HGTV with my foster mommy -- please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon and let them know Dixie is the little lady for you! I cant wait to start our fun life together! Kisses and cuddles, Dixie If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-11-00149Pooka (female)

Poodle Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Low Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi there, future family! My name is Pooka and if you are looking for a snuggly, little couch potato who loves nothing more than curling up with a good blanket and her favorite people, you are in luck because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am 7 years young, and have a chill, relaxed demeanor that I am told appeals to lots of adopters! I have lots of life left to enjoy, but I am out of that hyper and energetic puppy/young dog stage and love to settle in for snuggles and love. I am a little girl, ... (Read More)weighing in at about 8 pounds, so I will fit perfectly onto your lap for Netflix and chill time! I was saved from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where my previous owner brought me when they no longer wanted me. I had to have a bit of eye surgery because I had a cherry eye, but now that it is healing up, I am ready and excited to find my true forever home! Don't get me wrong, I am having a great time in my foster home, but it will be amazing when I hear my humans say 'You are my girl forever!' My favorite activities in my foster home include eating my favorite yummy foods and treats, and taking naps with my foster mommy, especially when I can curl up under a blanket. If foster mommy can't find me, she checks under the covers in her bed and I am usually there in my Pooka-made nest. I also live with another small dog and a cat, and I get along fine with them; in fact, I mostly just ignore them since I am so zen and love to relax. I have great house manners, too, and will make an excellent roommate. I am quiet and tidy, and also potty trained. I don't need to be crated since I just find my favorite spot to nap and curl up under a blanket when foster mommy leaves the house. She is retired so I am not left alone for very long, but I imagine I would do fine if you need to leave the house for longer periods of time because of work or other adulting responsibilities. Although I don't currently live with kiddos, I get along great with humans of all ages and am always very gentle and sweet when younger people visit with me at the adoption shows. More than anything, I want a forever home where I will feel relaxed and loved for the rest of my life. If I sound like I am the perfect, low-maintenance sweetie for you, please get in touch with my human friends soon and let them know how much you love me already. I can't wait to start my happily ever after with you! Cuddles and love, Pooka If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

He is house trained 100%, and walks well on a leash with guidance. He does great with other dogs, although you can tell he hadn't been socialized until he came to rescue. So sometimes he's a little awkward, but always endearing. He was treated for heartworm and will soon be tested to make sure he is clear for adoption. If you have any questions about him, don't hesitate to send me an email about him. I have been fostering him since January, and am excited to find him his forever home. He is eager ...

    *BRUISER WAS SURRENDERED BY HIS FAMILY OVER A YEAR AGO AND NEEDS A FOSTER OR ADOPTER ASAP* Currently in North Chicago. This boy has so much love to give. Bruiser was given up by his owner when he lost his home. Two hearts were broken that day, his and Bruiser's. This dog greets you with a roll down your leg and on his back. All he wants in life is to be loved. So much so that he prefers to be the only animal in the home. Please help us save Bruiser. Bruiser is five years old and was in his home for four years. For the last year of his life, he has been stuck in a kennel just waiting for his true forever person/family.
