    This big beefcake right here is Romeo! His name fits him, as he knows how to charm. Romeo is around 4-5 years old, great with all the other dogs we've tested him with, and he does not seem to mind cats too much, but would probably do best in a cat-free home or one with a laid back cat that doesn't bother him much. Romeo LOVES his toys! The squeekier the better! He does a happy dance whenever he hears his favorite noise, THE SQUEAK! He's very treat motivated and eager to learn, knows basic commands, keeps a clean kennel run, and is an all around great guy! Please share this hunk so he can find a home of his own!

We also learned how amazing of a dog he is despite all hes been through! He is potty trained, knows all his basic manners and listens very well! Please help us find this boy the perfect home to show him how great life is!

    Gentlemen, start your engines - Smiley is on the track and ready to run! This 18 month old goofball pittie mix just has to have some greyhound in him - he's off like a shot whenever he gets the chance. Smiley arrived at ACL as a stray, and so far, he thinks being here is great! To be fair, Smiley thinks everything is great - he loves people and toys, and he'd rather play with you than do anything else. Smiley is good with some other big, playful dogs, but his energy is just too much for cats and small dogs. Smiley doesn't have a lot of manners, so he's still jumpy and a big knucklehead, but his heart's in the right place. With some regular ... (Read More)exercise and basic training, Smiley is going to be the perfect pet for an active family who wants a great dog to be their dog their partner in crime. He'll do best with kids 12 and up because of his high energy (and high jumps!) Come meet Smiley today! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-17-00165Mario (male)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    ABOUT SUPER MARIO Mario is an AWESOME dog! Mario is four years old - he was a rescue dog, so we're not sure of his exact birth date, but he was about 6 - 8 weeks old when we adopted him on July 1, 2012. He's very handsome, as you can see from his picture. He is majority boxer, with lab and some other breeds mixed in - a good old-fashioned American mutt. He is extremely well-behaved, having completed a 'doggy boot camp', with several weeks of 24-hour training by professionals. He's a big, strong boy - 75 pounds or so. He's super friendly - loves to snuggle and pretend he's a lap dog. He loves to play - you can see him in action here: ... (Read More)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVbRQtKD-Vo. Mario isn't, of course, perfect. He has had a few issues of aggression with other dogs. Never with people, but his size can be an issue for small children, as he can knock them down with his enthusiasm. He's been a pampered boy his whole life - he's not suited to be an outdoor dog, or to be a hunting dog. Mario's shots are all up to date, and he comes with everything you need - his crate, bed, placemat, bowls, vet records, food, etc. Mario has no health issues, and is ready to love you and your family. Please help Mario find his new forever home! ABOUT YOU Mario deserves lots of love, which means a home with lots of dog lovers. A backyard with enough space for a big dog to romp in. Mario has been trained on an Invisible Fence system, and comes with an Invisible Fence collar, if you have one, or if you would install it. Otherwise, he respects fence boundaries, too. Mario needs to be the center of attention - your home should not have any other pets, nor should it have small children. Teenagers are fine - Mario loves all humans, he's just too big to be safe around small children unsupervised. You should love dogs, and appreciate the benefits of a dog that is still young and has many years ahead of him, but is old enough to already be well-trained and house-broken. If this sounds like you, please contact us right now - we'd love to bring Mario to meet you! ABOUT THE ADOPTION There will be no fee to adopt Mario. If you like, we'd ask that you please donate to your local shelter / rescue, or to the website this is posted on. The adoption will be considered temporary, and if it goes well after that point, can be finalized in a month or two. There will be a contract guaranteeing Mario's safe return to us should the adoption not work out for any reason, at any time, no questions asked. (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!* Hi there! My name is Maisie and if you are looking for a best friend who is the perfect mix of playful companion and cuddle buddy, it is your lucky day because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a 4-year-old beagle/dachshund mix, and believe me when I say low-riding doggies don't come cuter than me! I have adorable short, stubby legs that hold up my long 20-pound body. My black and tan fur feels like velvet when you pet me. And my beautiful big hound ears perfectly frame my face so they can ... (Read More)highlight my soulful eyes that are filled with love and affection! I was found in a crate in Chicago with a note from my previous owners saying they could no longer take care of me. I was brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control, and my friends from Fetching Tails quickly came to my rescue. I am so happy to get a second chance at a happy, loving life, and I am having great fun in my foster home while I wait for my forever family. I have dog and cat friends, and I love them all dearly! I enjoy playtime in the yard with my canine companions, and am very gentle with the kitties: I love to follow them around with my tail wagging to earn their trust. I would do well in a forever home with a furry friend or two to hang out with. I also love people, particularly cuddling with my people! Cuddling is definitely my favorite activity: if given the option, I think I would pick cuddling over pretty much anything else! I am very gentle, and will calmly jump up next to you on the couch so we can snuggle close to each other. Some of my other favorite activities include play fetch with tennis balls, playing tug-of-war, and going for strolls around the neighborhood with foster mommy. I am a polite, well-mannered girl as well. I am potty trained, and know a few commands such as sit, no, and wait. When foster mommy leaves the house to run errands, I don't get into mischief while she is gone and nap on my favorite doggie beds until she comes home. I get attached to my people, so I think it would be nice to have someone who is home more often than not so we can enjoy our playtime and snuggle times as much as possible. What can I say? I am a loyal girl, and I will reward the lucky family who adopts me with a lifetime of devotion, sweet kisses, and lots of cuddles. Doesn't that sound like a dream life? If you think I could be the girl for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon! I can't wait to start our fairy tale life together!

American Staffordshire Terrier 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!* Hello hello! Are you looking for a fun-loving, loyal, handsome companion who is ready for a lifetime of kisses and adventures? I am Eli, and it is your lucky day because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a 2-year-old 'pitbull' mix, and if I may be so humble, I am quite the handsome fellow. I have stunning golden fur, and a long tail that never stops wagging because I am such a happy guy! I currently weigh in at 51 pounds, but my nice veterinarian says I need to gain a few more to be at my ideal ... (Read More)size. Will you be my forever family and provide me with yummy treats to help me reach my goal weight? Fetching Tails Foundation saved me through the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention and Support Program (CRISP) that they co-founded with other rescues in the area. My previous owner brought me to Chicago Animal Care & Control; he was a landlord and his tenants left me with him when they had to move out but unfortunately he couldn't keep me. Thankfully my friends from CRISP and Fetching Tails were at the shelter that day and I was able to go home with my foster mommy instead of ever going in the busy building! I feel like I hit the jackpot, and I am so happy I get a chance to find a real forever family. My foster home is so much fun: I have two mid-size doggie girlfriends to play with and I get along great with them! I think it would be amazing to have a doggie playmate at my forever home and am keeping my paws crossed that I can join a family with another goofy, friendly dog like me. My favorite activities include going for long walks, playing fetch and running around my foster family's fenced yard, and playing with as many squeaky toys as I can get my paws on. Don't I sound like such a fun fella? I also love meeting new people: I dole out kisses to everyone I meet of all ages; I even did great meeting what you humans call a toddler. I think that means I would make a fine family dog! And I am a super smart pup, too! I know loads of commands including sit, paw, down, and come, and because I am so studious I am currently working on stay. I am also potty trained, though I like to go out often; foster mommy says I can make it about three hours right now and I am trying to extend my streak. When foster mommy goes to work for up to five hours, I am comfortable hanging out in my private Eli room and don't scratch at the door or bark while she is gone. I am curious about the world and love to learn, so maybe it could be fun for us to take some training classes together for special bonding time and to see how many more commands we can learn together? I think we could have a great time seeing what the world has to offer us, and I even love car rides so imagine all the fun adventures we could have together! So, what do you think? I sound like a pretty awesome dude, right? What are you waiting for? Please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and let them know you are ready to have a fun-filled, active, loving life with Eli! I can't wait to enjoy the good life with my forever family! Love and cuddles, Eli If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-06-00272Lolo (female)

Anatolian Shepherd 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!* Greetings! Are you looking for a playful, active girl with whom to enjoy a lifetime of fun adventures? My name is Lolo, and I am a 3-year-old Shepherd mix who is ready to report for duty! I am a 40-pound, medium-size beauty and I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I have stunning black and tan coloring, and I am a fun, bouncy girl who would love nothing more than to play lots with you, then curl up on your lap when we are all worn out (I think my medium-size build is perfect for keeping your lap nice ... (Read More)and warm!) Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where my previous owners left me when they no longer wanted me. I have to be honest with you, I am am having WAY more fun in my foster home than I ever did before! I get to play, play, play to my heart's content, and I have lots of toys to pick from...doesn't that sound amazing? I am a playful girl, and I would love a forever home with a fenced yard so I can run and play to burn all my fun energy. I enjoy chasing balls when my humans throw them, and also like toys such as kongs and antlers that I can chew. My foster home also has other doggies, and I love to play with them too, so it would be fun to have another playful pup in my forever home so we can keep each other entertained. If you have human kiddos I think I would do best if they were older because of my playful nature. I am very affectionate with the people I love, and enjoy being near them as much as possible for cuddles once I am tired from my playing. I am a very smart girl, and am learning lots of new things in my foster home. I am potty trained and crate trained. When my foster parents have to go to that place they call 'work,' I happily hang out in my crate with my favorite treat-filled kong. I also know a few commands such as sit, leave it, no, and yes. I am working on the stay command and on leash training...I love to go for long walks but am learning not to pull on the leash. Fetching Tails encourages all adopters to take their new pups to training classes, and I think I would really enjoy seeing how much more I can learn to be the best dog I can be. My foster mommy says I can act like a puppy with my excitement and happiness, but I am also a good listener and quickly learn the proper ways to behave with proper guidance and training. If I sound like I could be the goofy, fun-loving, affectionate doggie for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and let them know Lolo sent you! I can't wait to start my 'happy tail' with my forever family! Love and tail wags, Lolo If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Don't let Tootsie Roll's sad face fool you - she's one happy girl! Tootsie is a 9 month old Lab mix puppy who arrived at ACL in terrible condition after being abandoned in front of a local vet clinic in a crate. Tootsie is very thin and someone did a terrible crop job to her ears, but the one thing they couldn't touch was her great temperament! Tootsie is absolutely a gem - she loves everyone and everything, and she just can't wait to get into a forever home that will treat her like she deserves. Tootsie is good with other dogs when the chemistry is right (she seems to prefer small dogs), kids of all ages, and she's at a great age to ... (Read More)introduce to cats. She's got such a wiggly, giggly, jiggly personality that it's easy to overlook the weight she has yet to gain or the rough edges of her ears. Tootsie Roll may have had a bad start, but she's definitely not letting that stand in the way of her living a wonderful life full of fun! (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 

    JOLIET, IL (not Tinley Park) Meet Major, a 4 year old boxer mix in need of rescue! Major was surrendered to us by a heartbroken family due to landlord issues. His family contained 5 children under the age of 7 and they say that he loved them all! We were told that he has never really been around other dogs(which was evident when he got so nervous he wet himself!), but he did pass his cat test. Major unfortunately is often passed by because he hates his cage and has extreme anxiety in the cage and does not show well on our floor. However, we know him for the sweet boy that he is- he's just waiting for the right person to give him a chance.

Beagle Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Meet Betsy, a Beagle Boxer mix approx. 2 years old. Betsy has been a foster dog of ours since August. She has been an easy dog for us and fits well into our home of 2 children, one 9 and one 12 year old. She also gets along great with our 3 extra large dogs. She has never had an accident in our home or chewed on anything. She is crate trained and rides well in our car. My children and my niece just love her! They love to play and snuggle with her. I walk her everyday with my dogs and she does need training on pulling. The longer we have had her, she has started to display some behaviors that we need to work on. She started to greet other ... (Read More)dogs a bit to dominantly, never starting a fight, but just not great social behavior. She has also started to be a bit protective of our house when strangers come over. Nothing that can not be worked on, that is why H.E.L.P. has decided to get her training at Woof Beach in Batavia. I really think that she will make someone or a family a wonderful dog. We just love her and she absolutely loves us. I wanted to post this before she goes through all the training to give someone the chance to maybe bond with her during the process of her training and if not maybe a chance to hear her story and progress. There is more to this story that I would love to share. I am lucky enough to stay connected with most of the people that have adopted the dogs my family has fostered and would be happy to discuss Betsy with anyone interested in giving her a home of her own.

    Quick as a wink, you're in love...with Wink! This tiny tot is just the most adorable thing you've ever seen - the perfect mix of scruff, soft, and cute! Wink is a two year old Toy Fox Terrier/Chihuahua mix who came to ACL from a local animal control facility. Wink is goofy and affectionate - he'll dance for your attention, and he wants nothing more than to perch on you and watch the world go by. Wink is a hyperaffectionate little dog who can be clingy at first, but with a patient home, he'll get more confident and less needy. Wink is fine with other small dogs and cats that respect his space, but he's a little overwhelmed by big dogs. He ... (Read More)needs an experienced small dog owner who has some patience and previous knowledge of working with small dogs through some transitional stress and anxiety. Because of all the instability in his life so far, he'll need some training, so Wink's adopters are required to take a training class upon adoption. He'd do best in homes with kids 14 and up. What he really wants is to your little prince - the first face you see in the morning and the last face you see at night. Plan to catch 40 winks with Wink! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-26-00330Ricky (male)

Lab 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 Ricky; I am sweet, sensitive, curious, and I am looking for a loving, patient family to call my very own. Could that be with you? I am a 3-year-old, 60-pound Labrador mix, and I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am very humble, but my human friends tell me I am a stunningly handsome boy: they like to tell me I am fancy because I look like I am wearing what they call a tuxedo. I have rich black fur, and my chest is white as freshly fallen snow. My friends from Fetching Tails ... (Read More)Foundation rescued me from a shelter in Southern Illinois, where my previous owners left me and my two sisters. My sisters were more outgoing than me so they were adopted quickly, but because of my shy nature I couldn't find a home and the shelter reached out to see if FTF could help. My foster momma was very excited to offer to help me find a home so I made my way to Chicagoland for a fresh start! My foster home is wonderful: I have two big dog friends to show me the ropes and help me gain confidence. I think it would be amazing to have a dog friend in my forever home because I am most comfortable watching my fellow canines to see how home life works. I can be shy at first with new people and new surroundings; the first few days in my foster home I was content to chill in a corner with my comfy dog bed while I watched everything going on to make sure that I was safe. Now that I am feeling more comfortable, I explore the house more and hang out with my doggie friends. So a family who will be understanding that I need some time to decompress at first in my forever home is really important to me. One of my favorite activities is exploring the yard and wrestling with my doggie friends while we are outside. I would love a forever home with a fenced yard so I can enjoy the great outdoors. I am potty trained, and very comfortable in a crate (I consider it my doggie-den safe space!) I do fine when mommy has to leave the house for work or errands; like I said, I love my crate and am happy to curl up for a nap while she is gone. Fetching Tails Foundation likes to encourage all adopters to attend some training sessions with their new pets, and I think that could be very beneficial to help me learn some new tricks and boost my confidence. Foster mommy is working with me on leash training, and I think we could continue to work on that together. I love to eat so with some treats as motivation, I am sure we could learn a lot together and master many skills! I have waited a long time to find a loving family who will help me live the good life I have always dreamed about. If you think you could be the family to help me find my confidence and happiness, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon! I can't wait to start my happily ever after with a family that help me reach my full potential and love me forever! Love, Ricky If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

My name is Blitzen, and if you are looking for a fun-loving, lively hound pup to be your new best friend, I am super excited to tell you that I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a four-month-old hound mix; I currently weigh about 30 pounds and my human friends think I will probably be around 50 pounds when full-grown. I am a handsome guy: I have the traditional hound tri-color tie-dye design of black, tan, and white swirls, and adorable floppy ears that perfectly highlight my sweet, friendly ... (Read More)face. I was rescued from a shelter in Southern Illinois by my awesome foster mommy. I am having so much fun with Fetching Tails Foundation, and if there is one thing to know about me, it is that I love to have a good time! I have doggie friends in my foster home, and I love to play with my shepherd mix foster sister. I like to try and get her to chase me around the yard and living room. When I'm not playing with her, I enjoy playing with my favorite toys (all toys are my favorite toys!) I even like to try and get my reflection in the mirror to play with me, too! Have I mentioned yet that I love to play? What can I say, I'm a puppy and that is what we puppies do best! I think it would be lots of fun to have a fenced yard to play in and another doggie friend to play with in my forever home. Since I am young, I still have lots to learn about the world. I am good with potty training, am also crate trained, and I would love to take some puppy manners classes with my forever family so I can see how much more I can learn! Fetching Tails Foundation requires all adopters of young puppies to sign us up for training classes because our brains are like sponges right now and soak up all the information about proper manners and socialization; I really can't wait to attend classes see if we can get on the honor roll together! I am smart, sweet, and a happy-go-lucky guy so I am sure we will be the class valedictorians. More than anything, I want a family as loving and fun as me so we can have a lifetime of fun adventures! If you would like to adopt me, please get in touch with my humans at Fetching Tails Foundation soon so we can start enjoying our playtime together!

    *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! XOXO, Perla If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org/adopt or if any questions please email us!

Beagle Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Aaaaa-woooo! That is beagle-speak for HELLO! My name is Steinbeck and I am a 5-year-old beagle/basset mix. If you are looking for a devoted, lovable, huggable companion, it is your lucky day because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am a super handsome tri-color (white, tan, black) fellow, and like the stories by the author after whom I am named, I am loaded with heartwarming character: I am funny, loving, entertaining, and if you give me the forever home I long for, I will never ever leave your ... (Read More)side! My Fetching Tails friends saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control in August, where my previous owner left me when they could no longer take care of me. I needed quite a bit of TLC when my foster mom brought me home; I was very overweight and had a fully ruptured ACL in my left hind leg. But my foster family has been taking great care of me: thanks to a healthy diet, I have lost almost 15 pounds (I weigh about 40 now...foster mom thinks I could still lose a couple more pounds, but I am on the right track!) I also had surgery to repair my leg in October. It has been quite a journey complete with lots of bed rest, but I am getting around very well now and my leg feels SO much better! I feel like a new dog, and now I am ready to continue my adventure and find my forever family! I am a happy-go-lucky guy, and like many hounds, I love to spend time in the great outdoors sniffing all the lovely smells. I would love a fenced yard at my forever home so I can enjoy exploring and sunbathing. I also get along well with other dogs; I have a beagle, a doxie, and a 'mystery mix' as my BFFs at my foster home. I am playful, but have had to sit back and watch them run around while my leg heals; thankfully they also like long cuddle sessions so we have had a good time sharing my doggie bed. If you have a dog for me to be friends with, I think that would be so much fun! I think I would do best with older kids, and I would also do best in a forever home without cats. More than anything, I would love for my humans to be home more often than not because I simply love being around my people. It makes me so happy to lay near you, receiving belly rubs and head massages. My foster family tells me I am a well-behaved boy, as well. I am potty trained, and don't chew things I'm not supposed to in the house. I have a couple favorite toys I enjoy, and if you have to go out to run errands, I will settle down on my dog bed and wait for you to return. I do think I would do best in a single-family home instead of a townhouse or condo; I am what my foster mommy calls a 'storyteller' and I like to beagle bark to tell you all about my day, so it would be a good idea if we didn't share a wall with a neighbor who might not like my talking skills. I also think it would be nice if I didn't have to navigate too many stairs in the immediate future; I am still working on strengthening my leg so stairs are still a bit of a challenge for me. My fosters can fill you in with more details about my progress and how to make sure my leg continues healing properly! If you are looking for a dog who will be happy to be by your side through all of life's adventures, I am the handsome, attentive, LOVING boy for you! If you would like to arrange a meet-and-greet with me, please fill out an application and get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon! As much as I love my foster home, I am ready to start my 'happily ever after' story with my forever family! Love and cuddles, Steinbeck If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org/adopt or if any questions please email us!

    Shadow is a very sweet, smart and lovable, 60-pound, five-year-old, male Cattle Dog/American Bulldog-mix looking for a strong, active and loving guardian. Shadow is great with most other dogs - even small ones, but not larger ones - especially those who have not been neutered. He knows basic commands and takes treats gently from your fingers. He is housebroken and behaves well during baths. Because he still jumps up when excited, he's probably best in a home without small children. He gets a little over-stimulated when playing with his toys, so he's been working with a trainer and has gotten much better with his behavior. He is healthy, ...

    Baby is a very sweet, 21-pound, calm and quiet, eight-year-old, female Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso-mix looking for a very special dog-loving guardian. Baby was brought to the vet by her family to be euthanized because she was suffering from ear and eye infections. Luckily the vet tech at the animal hospital, asked if she could take her home and treat her instead of euthanizing her. Baby's eye and ear infections are on the mend and she's living happily in a loving foster home. She is perfectly housebroken and good with people of all ages - including children. She follows her foster mom from room to room in her home. However, she will bite if ... (Read More)someone tries to pick her up, or touch her paws. She is wonderful with cats and good with select dogs. She prefers small dogs to big fluffy dogs like Chows. Her best friends at her foster home are a Chihuahua and a cat. She is looking for a home where someone is home more often than not. She would love to live with a retired person or someone who works from home. And, she is looking for someone who will have the patience to allow her the time to adjust to her new home. Baby loves to go swimming at the lake, and loves her walks. She is now healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested negative. She does need eye drops daily to keep her comfortable and she may have occasional ear infections that her new guardian would need to watch for. To meet and possibly adopt Baby, please contact Navelle at navelleegrosche@gmail.com or 773-849-4334. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of FCACC. (Less)
