Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This is what his GA foster mom has to say about him: I introduced him to my dog, who is currently staying with my mom. They played the entire day and got along great. Within five minutes, they were best friends. He loves greeting other dogs. My mom also has a small yorkie mix, who was scared of Kyrie, due to his size. Kyrie was very friendly though and just wanted to play. I haven't seen him interact with children, except in the waiting room at the shelter, and he was very friendly. He just has a very friendly demeanor. He doesn't jump on you. He is the best listener. You only need to tell him 'No' once, and he won't do it again. He knows ... (Read More)'Sit.' He does need a little more leash training. He pulls and is incredibly strong. I'm sure he would be great with kids because he is so lovable. You can mess with him and play with him. I've never seen him growl or become defensive at all. He has been around a lot of my friends, and he just lets them love on him. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Kyrie. He loves to play fetch with his toys, but he also know when it's time to just lay around and nap. He loves to cuddle, but can also just do his own thing. He rarely barks or whines. He is going to be the perfect dog for a family. (Less)

Animal ID: 2904Shelby (female)

Flat-Coated Retriever Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Shelby is a country girl, looking for a family to come home to. Picked up as a stray, she is learning the manners that will be required in her forever home. She is a one-year-old, 70 lb. Flat Coat Retriever Mix. What a lovely dog, very smart and quiet, when you are. That being said, she has a lot of energy and deserves an active family that will make sure she is outside playing for at least an hour a day. In fact, she is an expert at playing, as Shelby is no couch potato! She is very intelligent and she knows how to sit, and lie down and she is aware of the commands 'No!' and 'Wait!'. Shelby is taken out every 3 hours or so, for potty ... (Read More)breaks, and has been successful! No accidents in the house in the last week. Yay! Besides doing well with the house-training, Shelby is learning to ring a bell when she needs to go outside! She walks well on a leash, with a harness and loves her rides in the car, with her foster sister, Sophie. Shelby is fine in the crate at night and has not whined at all, even during the strong thunder storms we've been having at night. She recently spent the night in her crate, when the door came open accidentally. What a good girl! Shelby eats her food with no aggression, and is a great family member! Her forever family will need to take her to puppy classes, so she can show everyone what a smart and very well-behaved dog she is. Shelby is looking for just the right placement. A new family that can give her the outlet for physical exercise and the framework of kind discipline that she will need. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant

    Rocky has been with our family since he was a year and a half. His original owner got him at 8 weeks old and abandoned him at a year and a half. He is amazing with my 3.5 year old daughter and never aggressive towards anyone in our home. He loves to run around in the yard and chase birds and squirrels. He loves to cuddle as well. His downfall is that loud noises such as fireworks scare him and he needs some basic obedience training on a leash, but none the less he is the biggest sweetheart around. The reason for rehoming is that I am a single mom and with school starting this fall, I am finding it harder and harder to afford an animal and I ...

    Chance was relinquished with another dog by a woman who apparently had them their whole lives. We believe Chance was possibly in a woman-only household as she seems to be afraid of men. But she's good with all of our volunteer dog walkers, men and women. All the volunteers really love her and said she's a friendly girl.

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-14-00673manny (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Manny is a 2 year old chihuahua mix. We took Manny in to our home in December, because the person who had was going to put him to sleep because he did not want him anymore. We never planned on keeping Manny we just wanted to make sure he was not put to sleep. We decided to try and keep him, but after having the last 6 months we have realized he is not a good fit with our family. He is a very sweet little dog who loves to cuddle and be with people. We have a 2 year old son, a 9 month old baby, a 10 year old terrier mix ( about 40 pounds), and a shitzu and Manny gets along great with all of them. The problem we have is Manny needs more ... (Read More)training and attention than we can give him right now. He has had some potty training issues and I was hoping after having neutered this would no longer be a problem, but unfortunately it still remains an issue, however, he does know that he is supposed to go outside to potty and will go to the door to let you know he needs out. He also tends to want to chew on the kids toys. I believe that with the proper training and a person/family who has more time to spend with him he could get past both of these habits. My husband works full 2 times at 2 jobs and I go to school full time and with the new baby and 2 other dogs Manny is not getting the attention or training that he needs and deserves, so we feel it would be best for him to go to someone with more time to give him. Manny must go to someone with patience, and preferably someone with experience training dogs. We are asking for a $100 re-homing fee to ensure he goes to a good home. Interview will be necessary for anyone interested in Manny. (Less)

    Sally is in need of a home.She was rescued as a stray in a blizzard this past January.

She spent several weeks in a loving foster home but due to issues with the landlord, she is now living on a farm up near Rockford. She is having a great time, but deserve to live in a home were she can snuggle up on the sofa and take a nap . If you are willing to be patient and earn Sally's trust, please consider her for adoption. Sally is approximately 2 to 3 years old, ... (Read More)she is spayed up to date on her shots, heartworm negative and on prevention medication, microchip and ready to take that next up. She is good with children, women, may need a slow introduction to some men and at this point, we have not tested her with dogs, but we suspect that she will be fine with other dogs. She needs an experienced handler, someone who can dedicate lots of 1:1 time to help her with trust issues. Her adoption will come with training as well as any other support that might be needed. Please share her and if you are interested in meeting her please private message me. Sharing saves lives and gives animals a 2nd chance! (Less)

    This is a real cutie. He is around 2 years old and weighed in at 18 lbs. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter in TX. As to breed, that is a complete guess. He's on the smaller side, so could be a Chihuahua mix with maybe some kind of terrier, maybe even some lab. All we know is that he is way too cute.

    Very good energetic loyal dog. We've had him around a female pit/lab mix and they got along great. Blue was also around a min schnauzer and min pin daily. Blue is not good with dogs he is not familiar with, and should be watched around smaller pets. I don't think he knows how tough he is. Blue loves walking on the leash, though he could still use more training to not pull. He loves going on bike rides as well. Blue was always good with our 9, and 10 year old daughters, as well as me and my spouse. Never had any type of aggression. Blue was involved in an attack against our min pin yesterday. We can no longer keep him because we are not sure ... (Read More)what happened in the attack, but believe that Blue would be better going with someone who can have eyes on him a little more than we do. I don;t see an issue with him being around kids or other dogs as long as he is trained a little more and can be supervised. (Less)

Ruthie is housebroken, and she's ready to go to a home looking for a companion who's full of personality and love. Ruthie is not comfortable with young children - too much chaos! - so she needs a home with teenage children or older.

She crates on a dime for a piece of cheese, but doesn't like to be crated for long periods of time. Because of her zest for life and playful nature, she doesn't do well around small children or cats.

I am small enough to sit in my foster mom's lap while she works and I am happy to cuddle up in a little bed with lots of fluffy blankets. I had surgery to correct my hip a few weeks back and I don't always use my leg, so I will need to keep doing exercises and stretches to strengthen my muscles. I do them three times a day and will need someone who is patient and willing to work my sore muscles out. I have three dog siblings in my foster home who are crazy nuts and I love them! I also have 2 cat siblings in my foster home - I love cats and I think one of them might like me just a little too.

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    . Male Beagle/Aussie/Jack Russell mix. DOB 2/20/14 Approximate weight - 30lbs Bandit was abandoned in rural Kentucky during one of the coldest winters on record. He was lucky to have been found by a wonderful rescue angel that knew he deserved a much better life! Bandit is a happy little ball of energy. He is always super excited to see you... if you have been gone for hours, or you just let him in from the back yard after 5 minutes. He is attentive, and eager to please; a very quick learner. He can be left alone, out of his crate, for a few hours without him getting into anything he's not supposed to We have been working on training; he ... (Read More)is proficient with sit and lay down. He makes good eye contact waiting for your direction, and he waits patiently after his food is put down for his cue to chow down. Stay is a work in progress. He takes a little while to warm up to other dogs, and seems to be protective of his space. Having said that, he became fast friends with the resident pooch in his foster home, but it was not without the requisite barking, growling, posturing, and hair raising. That episode lasted for about 5 minutes before they were let loose in the back yard together to figure each other out. After about 10 minutes of testing each other's limits... they have been playing non-stop ever since. Having another dog in the home is very beneficial for him! His playmate is also young so his high level of energy is matched by hers. Bandit loves everyone, old and young. He loves getting attention from grown people, but also seems to love big hugs from small people. When you first meet him one of the first things you notice (after getting over his adorable little fuzzy face), is that he has some of the most gorgeous eyes ever... one is light blue, and the other is mostly brown, with some light blue at the top. Sometimes he gets his left lip rolled up near his gums like dogs do on occasion, which just makes him that much cuter! This little guy has Jack Russell and Aussie traits, but his unbridled love and excitement makes him more than worth it for the right home! Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email Kathy for an application at safehavendogs@yahoo.com.

He's extremely affectionate, gentle, and mellow. Because he didn't meet a lot of dogs in his previous life, he isn't very comfortable with them. He'd prefer to be an only dog, and we think he deserves to be the apple of someone's eye!

    Chelsea is a beautiful, loving and very sweet, 35-pound, five-year-old, female, pit bull terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. She is an extremely happy girl whose tail is always wagging. She adores being pet and is full of loving kisses. She is housebroken and quietly crate-trained; Chelsea has an auto poop and pee as soon as she gets in the yard '| something all dog parents appreciate - especially in the winter! She has been going through training since she's been rescued and she knows the command sit, and takes treats nicely from your fingers. She's extremely responsive to people, protective and very treat-motivated. However, ... (Read More)she'd do best in a home as the one and only dog. She is doing well with a cat in her current foster home. Rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control, Chelsea had been found living alone in an abandoned house on the West side of Chicago in the bitter cold of winter. Thanks to Realtors to the Rescue, she was scooped up to safety. The poor girl was scarred, emaciated, full of worms, and had clearly been used for breeding. Chelsea is a funny dog in both personality and in physique. Her limbs and joints are malformed so she has a bow-legged bulldog stance on a tiny pit bull-like body. But Chelsea is anything but immobile. She is energetic and wiggly and loves galloping in a fenced in yard. Last Thanksgiving, Chelsea suffered a slipped disc in her lower spine. After a round of steroids, pain meds and muscle relaxers, Chelsea bounced back nicely. She is now healthy, spayed, de-wormed, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccines, and heartworm-tested. To meet and possibly adopt her, please contact Suzy at sthomas4419@gmail.com or 312-543-3884. Her adoption fee of $75 benefits rescued pets. She is being fostered in Addison, Illinois. Professional training and assistance with future medical needs will be included with her adoption.

In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. (Less)

He is crate trained and will sleep thru the night with the occasional trip outside. He is housebroken but being a puppy will still need someone to make sure he goes out every few hours as he doesn't always remember to let you know when he needs to go! He absolutely loves every dog he meets, and is ready to play when around them!! Due to his love of playing with other dogs, we are requiring another playful dog in the family. He also loves everyone ... (Read More)meets and is excellent with our boys his only fault is he is a jumper but we are working on correcting it. He would probably do best with a fence but I don't feel it is absolutely necessary but he will need a lot of exercise and an active family, as he has a ton of energy! He is up to date on shots including Rabies and has been neutered. Since he is still learning, he will require a home where there will be someone available to continue his training.

    Bella is a Black and white lab pointer mix. She is about 5yrs old and 74lbs. She was brought up to her foster home approx. 2nd week of April. She has been in a foster home with 2 doggie sisters and brought everyday to work with her foster mom in a grooming shop. In the beginning she was nervous and I am sure scared to adjust to such a new life. She has been socializing with so many new and different dogs and people. She has been slowly adjusting, but in the last few weeks has been really come into her own. She started to really act like a happy dog, playing with toys, dogs and loves all the puppies. She has also been showing so much ... (Read More)affection to all the women she is around everyday. She has so much to offer to a new owner. I can really see in her that she has a purpose to be apart of someones life who just needs that unconditional love. She is a special dog and has a special soul. She is nervous around men, but I am sure she would come around. To be in a grooming shop everyday would be hard on any dog, but Bella is fine with that. That is amazing to me and She deserves a wonderful life. She would be great in an adult household and she walks great on leash and responds to all commands. She has also started training at her foster home with the underground dog fence.She is wonderful in the car at home and at work. Please come meet Bella, she will be happy to greet you! (Less)

    Mr Belvedere is a calm, loving and very gentle, eight-year-old, 58-pound, male, white pit bull terrier with cropped ears looking for a loving guardian. If someone hoped to make Mr B look tough with his cropped ears, it just doesn't work. He is so cuddly and lovable.

While he's not aggressive with other dogs, he has no use for ... (Read More)them, and he does not do well with cats. So, he'd do best as the one and only pet in the home.

Mastiff Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Mufasa is a handsome, calm and well-behaved, four-year-old, male brindle and white Mastiff/Pit-mix looking for a loving guardian. Mufasa was found stray in Chicago, oddly, lying on a blanket in the middle of a city street. A dog-lover moved the blanket to an abandoned lot and Mufasa followed. Caring passers by earned Mufasa's trust by feeding the hungry boy cheeseburgers and brought him to Chicago Animal Care and Control. He was then transferred to the Animal Care League and is now healthy and ready for a loving home. Mufasa loves going on walks. He would love a guardian who will take him to training class and teach him new things. He ... (Read More)doesn't seem at all reactive to other dogs, but unfortunately he does like to chase cats. He is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested and micro-chipped. To meet and possibly adopt him, Mufasa, please visit the Animal Care League shelter at 1011 Garfield, Oak Park, Illinois, Monday, Thursday & Friday from noon to 7:00 p.m. or Saturday & Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. His adoption fee of $150 benefits the rescued pets of the Animal Care League.

    Silva has been fed Natural Choice his entire life. He knows various commands such as speak, sit, kneel, and shake. Silva is a very affectionate puppy that is in need of a new home. Silva's original owner was not able to take care of him. The puppy deserved a chance, so I have been temporarily taking care of him since he was a young pup. I will be moving out of my current state soon and will not be able to move with him. Silva would be a wonderful family dog. I would also prefer that the adopters are able to keep him on his current diet of eating twice a day with natural choice or at minimum another organic or holistic higher quality brand. ...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Bambi is the most adorable 3 year old pocket pittie! She loves playing with other dogs, and she always gives great, respectful signals. Bambi came into the shelter as an extremely emaciated stray. We worked with her to get back to a healthy weight and to develop a positive relationship with food - she had been starved for so long that she didn't understand that she would be fed from now on. Bambi loves walks, and she is the most attentive, loyal dog out there. She's extremely smart, and her eagerness to please her people makes her super trainable. Bambi does have some quirks from her rough early life, so she'll need an experienced owner who ... (Read More)can give her patience and help her work through some insecurities. She's a wonderful animal who wants nothing more than to be by your side. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-09-00550DARLING (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    DOB 3/2/2013 Darling was abandoned at a high kill shelter in Alabama that we work closely with. We were able to get her out of the shelter and into an amazing foster home in Alabama where she is waiting for her trip to Illinois and learning about love. Her Alabama foster told us that she is very sweet with humans... she will lick you to death. She is learning to sit. She is learning to share her people... It's like she is starving for attention and afraid to be abandoned again. She is housebroken and loves everyone...adults and children. Her foster in Illinois, has found that she is extremely sweet! She loves other dogs and does well with ... (Read More)cats too! She is also wonderful with children of all ages. She loves to be with her foster mom and has made her way onto the foot of the bed...that's where she sleeps each night! She has fantastic house manners and is very eager to please. She responds to 'no' and 'down' and learns quickly. She would love to have someone that is home with her because she does not crate well, it makes her very nervous and crating is not an option. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-09-00467Turkleton (Turk) (male)

Pointer Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Arthritis 

    Turk is a 7-year-old mixed-breed dog. We are not sure what breeds he is, but I would guess there is pointer or dalmatian in there somewhere. He does have a very dominant personality and must be with an experienced dog owner. He does have aggressive tendencies with other dogs, and while he is generally a fantastic dog that loves to jump up and give kisses, he has bit before (approximately 4 years ago - NO repeats whatsoever). He is great with my toddler; however, I would not feel comfortable placing him in a house with kids. Even with his mature age, Turk is very high energy. He loves to run and play and even does well running next to a bike. ... (Read More)We have noticed a more limited range of movement on his right hip lately, so we think he may have a touch of arthritis. He is slightly hard of hearing, as well, from chronic hematomas in his ears.Turk is such a loyal dog, and he truly is a fantastic companion who loves nothing more to curl up in a recliner and hang out. We hope to find a home for him where he will get the exercise and stimulation he needs to be happy. (Less)
