Iron Man would love to get out of these iron bars and just out of the shelter to freedom!! He is very sweet, calm, and is ball obsessed. Knowing that, we were pretty upset to see him so shut down his first day at the shelter. We gave him a day to decompress, and though still pretty sad, we got the leash on and took Hazel outside. It was like night and day watching him inside the shelter and then outside. He really lit up and we got to see his goofy personality. He zoomed around a little and was really interested in his ... (Read More)surroundings. He knows 'sit' on command and is very gentle taking treats. He eventually went over to his handler and leaned in for petting and scratches. No issues with handling, was sad to go back to cage.he lives to be with the volunteers. He knows where his toys are and he goes to pick them out when he is in the yard. It is so cute. Please don't let this guy down. Please save his life. Fostering is free. (Less)

Animal ID: Skyler  (male)

Cocker Spaniel Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Skyler is one beefy boy, one of the bigger cockers we have seen come thru the rescue. We are totally guessing that he has Clumber in him, he looks like he may and is a bit bigger than your typical cocker spaniel. Skyler was bought for a boy 4 years ago as a puppy but then the boy went off to college and I suppose Skyler was no longer needed!!?? What a confusing time for this sweet boy to lose your best friend, your home and then end up in a loud shelter. Thank goodness for the shelter though to give him a safe place to find a new family to love and care for. He was adopted for 4 hours and brought back, probably not enough time to get to know ... (Read More)him, ya think? Skyler is a sweet boy, very people centered and loving. He is an active boy that enjoys walks(could use a little leash work)playing with his toy sand just wants to be by your side all the time. He is getting along well with the dogs in our foster home although he is a bit unsure of them. He is very well mannered and housebroken, recently groomed, 4 years old and about 35 pounds. His adoption fee is $299. Please email Kristine at joysparrows@gmail.com. (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rito is an incredibly sweet, loving and playful, six-year-old, 12-pound (skinny), male Rat Terrier/Feist-mix looking for a loving guardian. Little Rito makes himself at home very quickly. He loves everyone he meets including people, dogs and cats. He's bonds quickly and lovingly. He enjoys being held in your arms, snuggling on your pillow at night, and going for long walks and rides in the car. He also loves running with other dogs. He knows the command sit and will dance for treats. He totally ignores and co-mingles nicely with cats. Rito is perfectly housebroken and well-behaved in the home. He hangs out with his favorite humans and ... (Read More)loves curling up in a ball in a dog bed or on the couch. He's got a big voice when necessary, so he's probably best in a home versus an apartment or condo. He came into rescue over a month ago and his original human was never found. When found, he was not wearing tags and he was not micro-chipped. He has now been micro-chipped. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm and fecal-tested. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Petraits. To meet and possibly adopt Rito, please sheri@petraits.com for an adoption application. (Less)

    Hi everyone! My name is Savior, I'm a hound mix and about 16 weeks old. I will probably grow to be a medium size pup. Even though I may not be physically very big, my personality grows everyday! I love to cuddle while I lay on my back and you rub my belly- I'll sleep like that for hours, it's the best!!! I LOVE other dogs, big or small I want to play with them all! I have met a few cats, they're ok- I just like to yell at them because I think it's funny. I'm getting the hang of this potty training thing, I still have accidents but I'm really good about going out with the big dogs in the morning and taking care of business. Kids are ... (Read More)great too, they run around and make lots of noise and that is my kind of party! I still have baby teeth and I love to chew on things so the more toys and bones I have the better! 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.

    Remco is looking for a forever home. Please contact his foster at cnrwilliamson@sbcglobal.net for more information. Note that you MUST be in the Chicagoland area (Schaumburg and vicinity) to adopt from Almost Home Foundation. Hi there! Let me introduce myself - I am Remco, a handsome, strapping, young male with a beguiling smile, luxuriant black coat with an understated white chest blaze and stocking feet. I am in search of human companionship to share in my enjoyment of long meandering walks, fetching, belly rubs, and flipping my floppy toy around. Naturally, I am very civil-mannered in the house and celebrate each new day with kisses for ... (Read More)my fosters. So as not to be confused with SuperDog, I must confess that I am sensitive to new encounters and cautious in making new friends but once you are in my inner circle, I'm a loving companion. I've lived with four different canine buddies making the most of each day in joyful play. If you are willing to help me acclimate to new situations, we can be the best of friends. Oh, did I mention I'm very intelligent? (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    Good morning, I found your website via google searching. I have a Staffie she is 5 years old brindle and white. I have had her since she was 3 months. I dont have any children and she has been like a child for me. I have traveled with her during this 5 years. I relocated to North Dakota for a job back in 2012 when I first got her. She is very well behaved. We lived in a hotel for almost 18 months due to lack of housing in the remote area in ND that I lived and work. She loves children. I relocated back to this area to assist my sister with my niece and nephew due to her divorce. She just moved on last Tuesday and the house she is ... (Read More)renting does not allow dogs. I was very unprepared for the move because I didnt find out until the day of the move that Chloe wouldn't be allowed.. Since the move on last week I have been searching for a relative or friend who would house her for a few weeks until I find a place of my own. I have had no success. I am hoping your agency would be able to assist me with this problem. I am fearful because of the over crowding at most humane societies that she would not be accepted with the intent of me getting her back. Please let me know if you can help me in any way. I have been keeping her in my truck while I am working and on very hot days like the last few I have been running the AC. When I am not working I am at the park with her of just riding or finding new places to walk and enjoy the day until night where she sleeps in the truck. I usually sleep with her in the truck until 2 or 3 am. I am in desperate need of assistance. I don't want to surrender her. Sincerely Patrick Reed. (Less)

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi there, friends and future family! My name is Sugar Pie, and what can I say, I am as sweet as my namesake! If you are looking for a loving, affectionate, little lady who will be by your side like a shadow, you have come to the right place because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a stunningly beautiful 1-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix, and I am what some people might call a 'pocket-pittie' because I am on the smaller, compact side. You know what that means? I am the perfect size ... (Read More)for cuddle sessions on the couch while we binge some of our favorite TV shows! I have delicious caramel-colored fur, and I have darker hair around my face that looks like I am wearing a mask...I also think my darker chocolate brown hair perfectly highlights my loving eyes and happy smile! But looks aren't everything, and believe me when I say my personality is even better than my pretty face! Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where my previous owner surrendered me because they no longer wanted me. I caught the canine flu while at the shelter and was pretty sick, but thankfully my lovely foster parents offered to save my life and give me a nice home in which to rest and recover. I am feeling so much better now that I am over my illness and am ready to find my forever family! My foster home has been so much fun, and I especially enjoy lounging in the grass to catch some sun rays, so I would love to have a fenced yard at my forever home where I can sunbathe to my heart's content. I also enjoy going for walkies in the neighborhood because I get to say hi to all our neighbor friends. I LOVE people, and get a case of the 'wiggle butts' when we have visitors at my foster home. I can't help but go up to everyone with a big smile on my face to say hi. I am very devoted to my family and will be your quiet shadow when you are home; I like to be near my people and keep you company so you always know how loved you are! I would be fine with another dog after some slow, structured introductions, but I would also be perfectly content as your one and only furry friend since I focus all my attention on human affection anyway! I have pretty great house manners, as well, since I am such a people pleaser. I am crate trained and can be left home alone for 6-10 hours while my foster parents go to work with no issues; in fact, I really think of my crate as my personal doggie den and enjoy going in there for naps and to relax with the door open even when my foster parents are home! I am potty trained, but I had a couple accidents in my foster home at first while learning the new schedule and routine. So I might need some patience and guidance the first few days while I figure out the new home; I only want to make you happy so I will figure it out fast! I also know a few commands including sit and stay. I am a very smart girl who aims to please! Are you completely head over heels in love with me yet? I know, I am easy to love! If you think I could be the snuggly, loving, happy-go-lucky girl for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them you want some Sugar Pie! As much fun as I am having at my foster home, I really can't wait to find my forever family and start our happily ever after together! XOXO, Sugar Pie If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

That is a mouthful, but what it means is that she may be able to live a typical life for several years, she may need meds at some point in her life-not yet tho. chances are she will not have a normal life expectancy, but yet, that is something none of us know for sure. Sharlee is all puppy, so snuggly and loving. She is looking for a loving and understanding family that will adore her for as ... (Read More)long as she has and we hope that will be a very long time. Sharlee is doing great with her housebreaking and enjoying playing with her big brother Shane. She is a beauty!! (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Warm summer greetings, future friends and family! My name is Sammie, and if you are looking for a pittie princess to be your new devoted companion you are in the right place because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a have a beautiful, loving personality that matches my gorgeous good looks. I am a 1-year-old, 55-pound American Staffordshire Terrier mix. I am a low-riding, stocky girl (I like to think I am just muscular and in good shape!), and I have rich caramel-colored fur with delicious ... (Read More)white streaks on my face, chest, and paws. And all my friends tell me my best features are my striking hazel eyes and big toothy smile! I am missing an upper canine tooth, so my smile always makes everyone around me laugh and smile, too. My happiness is contagious! I didn't have the best life before I was rescued, but boy am I making up for lost time now! I was brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control as a confiscate case; my previous so-called owner would leave me chained up outside in the bad winter weather so I was taken away from that bad place and found rescue with Fetching Tails Foundation. I love enjoying the good life inside a house with my foster daddy, and show him every day how thankful I am with lots of snuggles and affection. My favorite activity in the whole wide world is stretching out on the couch, and once I know you love me, I will rest my head on your chest while we chill together. But don't think I am a totally lazy girl; I also have bursts of energy and really love to run around and play in a yard so a fenced yard at my forever home is a definite must! I am so happy to greet new friends, and always wear a big toothy grin on my face when my foster daddy's friends come over for a visit. I have been around humans of all ages and have been on my best behavior. I prefer human company to other pets and like all your attention and focus on me, so I would rather be your one and only furry friend, please. I have enough playful energy to keep you entertained, and enough cuddles to keep you warm on chilly evenings, so who needs another dog, right? I can pretty much guarantee I will keep you smiling and laughing when I am ready to play and roll around making silly noises to get you to join in with me, or when I am so tired that I curl up and start sucking on my favorite blankie like a how a human baby sucks a pacifier. I have pretty good house manners, and foster daddy keeps helping me learn more to improve every day. I am potty trained; foster daddy has a doggie door that I can use when I have to go outside to do my business, so if my forever home doesn't have one I might need a little adjustment to the new schedule. I am a smart girl and will figure it out pretty quickly, though! I have also been working on commands including sit and give paw. I get so excited when my foster daddy gets home from work and jump up excitedly to greet him; he is teaching me to sit and greet him politely...I am getting pretty good at it, but I can't stop my excited wiggly tail from wagging while he tells me I am a good girl! I also love walkies, but since I am a strong girl I can be a bit of a puller on the leash and have been working to improve my leash skills. Fetching Tails encourages all adopters to attend training classes with their new pups, and I think we could have a great time at class together because not only is it a great bonding experience, but I could also learn so much more about how to be the best version of myself possible so we have a long, happy life together! Do I sound like I could be the girl for you? As much as I love my foster daddy, I keep hearing how amazing it will be to have a forever family to call my own and hope you think I could be your new BFF. If you are interested in meeting me, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them Sammie is the princess for you! Love and cuddles, Sammie If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Lab Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Meet Bean! Lab Mix Bean is a 3-month-old Lab mix currently weighing just 8 pounds. Bean is a little guy who can play with the big boys and still hold his own. He is vocal when playing with other dogs as he attempts to order them around. His foster family is guessing there may be some terrier in him. Bean is content sleeping near you when there is quiet time during the day and prefers being an arms reach away rather than snuggling up. He is crate trained and sleeps through the night with his crate covered. Bean is just at the end of his potty training journey. He is learning to go to the door when he needs to go out but if you ignore his ... (Read More)pleas he may have an accident. He walks nicely on his leash and is happy meeting new people and pets on his way. His tiny tail goes a million miles an hour. Bean is currently living with young kids. He is playful and accepting of small hands wanting to pet him. It is important to remember that he is still a puppy and needs plenty of things to chew on to keep him entertained. His foster family has been working on discouraging his love of shoes and charger cords S Bean will make a great family pet for someone looking for an independent friend we are guessing will be on the smaller side.

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-29-00234Pablo (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hola! Are you looking for a lovable, huggable, playful new best friend? My name is Pablo and I am a 10-month-old Shepherd mix who is looking for a fun, loving family to call my very own through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am a very handsome boy, and on the smaller side at 35 pounds. I will still grow a little bit and fill out some, but I will probably always be the perfect size for lap cuddles! I have rich, luxurious caramel coloring and a licorice black snout. And best of all: my personality is even more delicious than my ... (Read More)stunning physique! Fetching Tails Foundation saved me through the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program (CRISP) at Chicago Animal Care & Control. My previous owners brought me to the shelter because they were moving and couldn't take me with, but thankfully my friends from Fetching Tails were there that day and I got to go home to a loving foster family instead of going inside the big, scary shelter. Good thing, too: since I am young, I don't know much about the world yet and I think I would have been very worried in a shelter environment. But I am having the BEST time in my foster home and it is giving me some good ideas about what I would like my forever home to be like. I would love to have a canine friend or two in my forever home; I have canine companions of various sizes in my foster home and I have SO much fun playing with them and learning how to be a dog from them. When I am not playing with my doggie BFFs, my favorite activity is loving on my people: I give great kisses, lots of sweet hugs, and when I am tired and you are lounging on the couch I will happily climb right up on you so we can watch TV and snuggle. I am friendly and sweet with people of all ages. I do think I would do best in a forever home with kiddos past that toddler stage since I am so playful; I would hate to bump over a tiny human while playing my zoomies! I have pretty great house manners for being so young, too. I am crate trained (I rest in mine comfortably while foster mommy is at work and don't have any potty accidents in there while she is gone!), and I am working hard on mastering potty training, too. I might have a couple accidents when I first move into your home while I figure out the schedule, but I am very eager to please and with positive reinforcement and consistency I will get it figured out in no time! Foster mommy is also helping me learn a couple commands including sit, and I think it is lots of fun to learn! Fetching Tails Foundation encourages all adopters to take their new pups to training classes, and I think it would be so much fun if we could go together. Nothing makes me happier than making my people happy, and I think we could learn so much and form an amazing bond in a class setting where I can keep learning all about the big, fun world and help my confidence grow even more! If you think I could be the sweet, loving, playful young fella for you, please get in touch with my Fetching friends soon and tell them Pablo is your new main man! I can't wait to start our fun adventure together! XOXO, Pablo If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-21-00396Babe (female)

Chihuahua 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!* Are you looking for a loyal, loving, pint-size little lady with whom to spend your days and nights cuddling and enjoying our favorite binge-worthy shows on Netflix? Look no further! My name is Babe; I am a 4-year-old Chihuahua mix and I am looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am 14 pounds and if I could be so humble, must say that I am a very beautiful lady! I have toffee-colored fur and big brown eyes that I use to look at you with adoration. My big silly ears are pretty much always standing up because ... (Read More)I love to hear you tell me that I am a good girl. And best of all? My personality sparkles as much as my physical appearance! My friends from Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where my previous owners brought me because they could no longer keep me. I am so glad they saved me, too, because I love my foster home and am having so much fun snuggling and cuddling to my heart's content! Did I mention yet that I love to snuggle? It is my favorite thing to do in the whole, wide world so I hope my forever family loves to have a little shadow that will follow them around and curl up next to them as soon as we sit down together! I have short spurts of energy and enjoy burning it by going for walkies around the neighborhood or playing with my favorite toys. But mostly, I just want to be near my humans while we watch tv or read a good book together. Once I am bonded to my people, I am very loyal and and even a little protective so I sometimes bark or growl at new people who approach them until I know they are friends, too. Telling me it is ok and reassuring me that you aren't in trouble will calm me down and I am a total lovebug once I know you. I live with another small dog and while we co-exist and get along fine, I don't go out of my way to play with her or anything so I would be fine in a forever home with another laid-back dog or even as your only furry friend since I care more about human attention anyway!

Cairn 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! If you are looking for a dynamic duo to love, allow me to introduce me and my brother from another mother: my BFF is Micki, and my name is Mouse. We would love to find a forever home together and are available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am a 5-year-old wire terrier mix with fluffy, scruffy hair that is as white as snow. I only weigh 7 itty bitty pounds, which means I will fit perfectly on any lap...which is definitely a good thing because I am probably the most affectionate dog you will ever ... (Read More)meet and I LOVE a good lap snuggle! Micki (who is a 3-year-old Pekingese) and I were rescued from Chicago Animal Care & Control through the CRISP program. Our previous owner could no longer keep us, but we hit the jackpot because we got to go home with the president of Fetching Tails Foundation instead of going inside the big, busy shelter! We are having lots of fun at our foster home. We love to hang outside in the yard, and we really love to go for long walkies around the neighborhood with our foster parents. I like to be near my human as much as possible and am happiest when I am on my foster mommy's lap. Well, I guess you could say the only thing I love more than cuddling is my bestie Micki; I really need to be adopted with him because I look to him for guidance and confidence. We have been together a long time and really hope to stay that way. Two dogs are better than one anyway, right? Right! And if you already have pets, the more the merrier, I say! Micki and I get along well with dogs of all sizes and even kitty cats! I am also a very polite little darling, as well. I don't need to be crated when my humans have to go to that place they call work, and as long as I have my buddy Micki nearby I will happily relax until my parents come home again. More than anything, I just want a happy, loving home for Micki and me to go to together. If you think that could be with you, please get in touch with my foster mommy soon and tell her you are ready for this loving, affectionate duo! Kisses and cuddles, Mouse If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-30-00145Micki (male)

Pekingese Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Howdy! My name is Micki, and I have an outstanding proposition for you: what do you think about adopting not one, but two amazing, affectionate BFFs to spend your life with? My sister from another mister Mouse and I are looking for a forever home together and are available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am a ridiculously good looking 3-year-old, 12-pound Pekingese mix: I am a rich caramel color, with silky flowing locks and a smile that will melt even the coldest heart. My best accessory is my bestie Mouse: ... (Read More)she is a teeny tiny (only 7 pounds!) wire terrier mix with hair as white as snow. I think we complement each other really well, don't you? I know, I know, looks shouldn't matter, but since we have such great personalities, too, I think it is ok to humbly suggest that with us by your side, we could be the best looking family in the neighborhood! Mouse and I were saved from Chicago Animal Care & Control through the CRISP program. When our previous owners brought us there because they could no longer take care of us, we hit the jackpot and go to go home with the president of Fetching Tails instead of inside the big, busy shelter! Our foster home is pretty awesome: we get to lounge around the yard and go for lots of long walkies with our foster parents. I love going for walks and always wear my big signature grin while strutting down the sidewalk. When we are not enjoying the great outdoors, we love to lounge around the house and follow our foster mom around. I am a little more independent than Mouse, and while she will gladly stay in our human's lap all the time if given the chance, I prefer to seek out attention when I want some cuddles but will let my humans know that I am ready for some me time and personal space, as well. So what do you think? Do you want to give a loving forever home to two sweet, calm, loving little dogs? Two dogs are better than one anyway, right? Right! And if you already have pets, that is fine, too, because Mouse and I get along well with dogs of all sizes and even kitty cats! We sound pretty amazing, don't you think? You know you want to reach out to our foster mom and tell her we are the dogs for you. Just do it! Mouse and I can't wait to start our happily ever after with you! Love, Micki If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

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.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: 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 Xena, and if you are looking for an extra special, one-of-a-kind warrior princess to be your BFF, I could be the delightful, loving companion for you! I am a fabulous 8-month-old pittie mix, with gorgeous, unique brindle-patterned fur and ears that stand at attention to let you know I am always listening to you tell me how pretty I am. Best of all? My happy-go-lucky personality outshines even my beautiful physical looks! I was rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control by my amazing friends at Fetching ... (Read More)Tails Foundation. Let's get the sad stuff out of the way so we can focus on the positive ( because I am ALL about being positive and having a sunshine bright outlook on life!) I have two crushed discs in my lower spine, and because of that I am considered special needs. I have limited feeling in my hind end, so I can't really control my bladder or bowel and I also get around with a noticeable limp. BUT I have adapted to my condition very well and get around like a speed demon when I want to play....and let's be real, I LOVE to play and do zoomies as much as possible! I wear diapers to help with my potty issues, and I am very patient and cooperative when my foster mommy changes them for me. She will be happy to explain our diaper process to you so you can better understand my needs! I don't mind wearing them at all; I am a princess and I just think of them as a cute outfit to make me even more special and pretty! Now, let's get back to the fun stuff! I absolutely love life, and am having so much fun in my foster home. Like I said, I am a playful girl and nothing makes me happier than my many fun play times through the day: I love to play with toys and throw them all around the house so I can search them out and continue tossing them around. I think my favorite activity, though, is galloping around the yard with my dog friends. My foster mommy says I am her little busy body, and I like to know what everyone is up to in the house. But I also appreciate 'down time,' and when I am tired from playing I love to curl up for a nap on my comfy, cozy bed or snuggle on the couch with my humans. I soak up attention like a sponge, and adore cuddle times with my humans and dog friends, too. I have a great, even-mannered temperament: I can be silly and fun-loving when it is playtime, but I am also the biggest snuggle-bug when it is time to relax. When I think of my forever home, I dream of a family that will love me for me and give me all the affection and attention I crave. Nothing makes me happier than being around the people and canine friends I love most. I do fine when my foster parents have to leave the house for a few hours for work and errands and I rest comfortably in my dog bed while they are gone, but when they are home I like to be around them as much as possible. I also need to have a dog BFF in my forever home because I thrive with the companionship of canine friends. I get along great with all dogs, and read their personalities really well so I know when they want to play or when they have had enough of my silliness. I will also need my family to understand my special needs and be able to provide supplements as well as physical therapy as needed through my life. I might have more needs than the average dog, but like I am said I am unique and special and I think my devoted, endlessly happy personality and demeanor makes me worth it! If you think I could be the sweet, curious, lovebug for your family, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon! I can't wait to start my happily ever after with you! Puppy cuddles and kisses, Xena If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us! Adoption Requirements: *Be at least 21 years of age *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 *Lives in 50 mile radius of Itasca within the Illinois border Adoption Fees: Senior dog - 8 years and up, $75 Adult or young dog - 6 months to 7 years, $250 Puppies - under 6 months, $350 (Less)

    Lola is a beautiful, loving, loyal dog to her owner and family. Her strengths include: house trained, walks well on the leash, responds well to structure, incredibly sweet and loving to her 'people,' and has a good energy level that matches her owner. We saved her from a neglect situation about 5 years ago and she was heart worm positive and very sick. We helped her regain her health and her personality/spirit. Lola struggles with separation anxiety and would do well with an owner who is home more frequently than not. She also becomes anxious around large groups of people and kids. She is very protective and exhibits fear-based behaviors ... (Read More)around dominant dogs and threatening people. She received intensive behavioral training about 3 years ago. She does well with structure, predictibility, and a lot of love/support. Her current owners love her very much and can provide feedback on how to meet her needs (including an effective system for managing separation anxiety). They are faced with having to rehome her due to long work schedules and focus on young children's needs. Lola is a wonderful companion and thrives in a calm setting accompanied by a loving owner.

    Neville is an incredibly sweet, playful, affectionate and lovable 18-month-old, 67-pound, male brindle and white pit bull terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. 'Nevy,' as his friends call him, adores people and gets along with other dogs. He and two other dogs were turned in to Chicago Animal Care and Control when their owner could no longer care for them. He is full of kisses and tail wags for everyone he meets. He is perfectly housebroken, quiet in the home and wonderful on leash. He absolutely loves to go on car rides. Neville knows the command sit and takes treats very gently from your fingers. He is living in a foster home ... (Read More)and he doesn't even beg for human food.

Neville is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Famous Fido's. He is currently being fostered in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis, Blind, Malnourished 

    Sheena is a 15-year-old, very frail and thin, female black and white shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian as a hospice situation.

Rescue staff and volunteers have nursed her back from each illness and now she eats mostly boiled chicken and rice, although she also loves ... (Read More)cheese. Her arthritis slows her down. She is visually impaired and easily startled so she may bite if surprised or frightened, so she's best in a home with tolerant dog-lovers without children.

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Delightful Gussie is the absolute definition of 'mutt' - all the best qualities from many different breeds mixed together in one adorable package! This little muscly dynamo is clearly Jack Russell or Rat Terrier, and she likely has some mix of Staffordshire Terrier in her to give her that cute stocky body. She only weighs 25 pounds, but she has the personality of a dog 4 times her size! Gussie is about 18 months old, and she came to ACL from a local animal control. She's clearly been used for puppies in the past, and at her young age this is just so unfair! Luckily Gussie doesn't let anything get her down - she's a high energy, happy go ... (Read More)lucky, wiggly jigglebutt who just wants to party all day every day! Gussie is a little unmannered, and she responds best to firm, confident, calm leadership. With a more laissez-faire owner, she can get pushy and bossy. She needs an experienced owner willing to help her work through some of her teenaged nuttiness and relax into the sweet girl she's meant to be! Gussie loves other dogs and would do great with another rough and tumble canine companion. Because of Gussie's high energy, interested adopters should email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org to set up a time to meet her and discuss adoption! (Less)

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Greetings! My name is Perla, and if you are looking for a devoted, sweet-as-sugar little friend to cuddle, I am a 5-year-old Chihuahua who is available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am 8 pounds of love, and I have gorgeous caramel-colored fur. My adorable ears always stand at attention because I like to listen to every word my favorite people say, and I love to look at you with my big, beautiful eyes. Fetching Tails Foundation rescued me after my previous owners had to give me away. I have been having lots of ... (Read More)fun in my foster home since my rescue: some of my favorite activities include hanging out with my doggie friends (foster mommy has a couple other little chihuahuas like me!), running around in the yard and throughout the house, and playing with soft, squeaky toys. I get along fabulously with other dogs and think it would be fun to have another furry friend or two in my forever home, however my friends should be of the doggie variety and not kitties. I am a little shy when meeting new humans for the first time, but once I come out of my shell I am the most loving little girl you will ever meet: I love to snuggle, and shower you with my affection. I have pretty great house manners, too: I have been working on my potty training and crate training since my foster mommy saved me. I am good about using a pee pad now that I know what it is for, and will go potty outside when we go out to do our business. With consistency and a routine I will have a perfect record in no time. If you have to leave the house for a few hours to go to work or run errands, I will be content to make myself a perfect little chihuahua nest out of my blankets and doggie bed so I can curl up for a nap. I love to be warm and comfortable, so I hope my forever family has lots of blankets for me to call my own! If a sweet, lovable, little snuggler sounds like the doggie friend for you, please get in touch with my friends from Fetching Tails Foundation and let them know Perla is the darling girl for whom you have been searching!

    Biscuit is a chihuahua mix who is about 2 yrs old and weighs about 9 lbs. He is a special boy who takes some time to warm up to new people, but once you gain his trust he will be your sidekick and shadow. He loves to give kisses and likes to be held as well as cuddling on the couch and the bed is even better. Walking him on a leash is like trying to walk a fish out of water, but his foster continues to work on this with him. For this reason, we would like to place him in a home with a fenced in yard. His housetraining is a work in progress. He will need a very patient family who will spend the time to build his confidence, work on ...

We are looking for a quiet, all-adult home for little Biscuit. His adoption donation of $250 helps cover the cost of his vetting and care. Application, reference checks, and home visit required. Adopters must live 1.5 hours driving distance from Romeoville, IL. For more information on adopting, please email us at info@perfectpooches.org.
