Rescue Me ID: 16-09-30-00378Shea (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Meet Shea!! Shea a 5 month old lab/terrier mix. At almost 5 months and 20 lbs. She is all puppy all the time. Shea is the happiest puppy on the block. She has not met a human big or small she does not immediately like. She is the star at the playground and at the farmers market eager to sniff and lick everyone who stops. She may jump up and try to chew on your hand or catch your toes but just because she is so excited. She loves to make puppy friends even those who are not too sure about her and her excitement level. She is high energy and if you lose sight of her she quickly finds the shoes you thought you had put away. She loves to ... (Read More)chew and play with her toys but just like a toddler if you can't hear her something is up. While she will let you know she is not happy with it in the beginning she does well during the day in the crate for 2-3 hours. While little she would benefit from someone home to continue her training. If she gets enough exercise and attention she will sleep close to 8 hours in her crate without any accidents. Shea is learning where you go potty and prefer doing her business on walks rather than off her leash She has had a few accidents but mostly right after eating if you don't get her outside immediately. She will run to a secluded part of the house where she thinks you cannot find her. She walks nicely on the leash once she gets some energy out and very curious about all the wild life. A fenced yard would be ideal but not a requirement. Make sure she gets plenty of long walks and play time and she is happy. Shea will make an awesome family dog for someone who has the time to train her. She already knows how to sit and is working on stay. Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption.

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.

    Meet Will 14-15 weeks old. 10-11 lbs Terrier/Hound Mix Will is a sweet, sweet boy. He loves to cuddle after a few hours of playtime. Squeaky toys are his favorite. Housebreaking is on-going, but moving steadily in a positive direction. Most nights are mess free and when on free roam in the house he uses puppy pads. Leash walking will take some getting used to as he has only been in a fenced in yard. Will gets along well with 2 other dogs in the house it wouldn't surprise me if he would get along with cats as well.

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Kenya Lab Mix 1 1/2 yrs old Kenya and her sister Kelly are big love bugs! They both get along great with other dogs and they are all around good girls! They are currently living in a high kill shelter and they are hoping someone will commit to fostering them so they can hitch a ride to safety in IL. If we find a foster home for Kenya, she will arrive the weekend of Oct. 8th. Safe Haven Dog Rescue pays for all vetting (done locally in Wheaton, Geneva, Naperville, and Elmhurst) and will provide supplies while you foster. Please email safehavendogsil@yahoo.com for a foster home application! She is also available for our Foster to Adopt ... (Read More)program. This program allows you to be the family that greets her when she arrives in Illinois. Foster to Adopt families have the first option to adopt if you determine this is the pup right for you! While you foster, we pay all expenses from vetting, to food and we provide a crate, leash, collars, and toys. Your family provides love (something she desperately needs!) and a safe place to lay her head until she finds her forever home. We also require that you have the ability to take her to routine veterinary visits at our participating vets. These vets are located in Wheaton, Naperville, Geneva and Elmhurst. Spay/Neuters are done in North Aurora. Fostering is the most life giving thing you can do for a dog or puppy! It is a very rewarding experience that will make a huge impact on their life. By becoming a foster you are saving 2 lives - the animal you bring into your home while he or she waits to be adopted, and the animal who gets to take your foster's place in the shelter.

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

    Sweet, petite and such a little lady! Marie was left at a shelter with her buddy Oakley, their family said they did not have enough time for them. Well, that is OK, we are pretty sure there are some wonderful families out there that would love to shower them with all kinds of love and attention. Marie would be a perfect companion for a retiree or someone that is home most of the time. She is such a love, wants to sit in your lap and snuggle. She is very sweet, quiet, well mannered but can rough house with the other dogs and does frequently-but her true passion is her people. Marie is said to be 8+ years old, would be hard to tell since she ... (Read More)is such a youthful girl, perhaps just aged gracefully? She is a min pin, we think Italian Greyhound mix, she has beautiful longs legs and a small frame, only 9 pounds. Of course Marie is housebroken, just had a dental and is ready for her happily ever after! (Less)

Pug Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    We are not really sure what this little turnip is, Oakley is short, has the most adorable stubby legs like a dachshund but then has the head of a puggle. He is just 2 years old and 15 pounds, although he is quite thin right now. He had only been with his previous family for a few months so this little guy could use a family of his very own that will love him forever. When he first came to us he was very fearful but in the next few days he began to open up and relax. It was like a light came on and Oakley realized he was OK. Literally one afternoon we went outside, he looked around, wagged his tail and started running in big circles in the ... (Read More)yard--he was sooooooo happy! He is a sweet little guy that gets along great with everyone, still a little on the quiet side but that could all change as he gains a little confidence and further lets his guard down. Oakley does have a slight heart murmur, a 2 out of 6, which does not require medication and is considered significant and he is not on meds. Oakley is a happy, bouncy boy--he LOVES to play fetch!

    Reunited and it feels so goooood! (feel free to sing along) Will and Elizabeth were separated for a time after coming to a shelter, but this brother and sister pair were none to happy about that. Will came to us first due to his shyness and nervousness at the shelter-it can be a loud and scary place. He was doing OK and settling in gradually, but Elizabeth was so nervous and sad at the shelter it was decided to send her to rescue as well. When these two got back together they were the two happiest pups I think I had ever seen! They jumped and wagged, wiggled and ran laps in the yard-all we could see were these little white blurs zooming ... (Read More)by! Will and Elizabeth are just 9 months old, just babies and have already been through a lot. But, they are smart little cookies and are settling in and happily seek attention as well as getting along with the other dogs. They are spunky,active and true to those JRT roots so incredibly smart and will be wonderful companions. My JRT is 14years old, they are pretty much 4 footed people, or at least they think they are! We will be adopting them together, they will need an active family, a fenced yard would be best and plenty of time to spend with them. (Less)

    Hi I'm Dodger! I'm about five years old. One of my favorite things to do is bask in the sun- especially outside in the yard, where I can run around and chase birds and toads! I like to lounge on the couch; a nice doggie bed will do, too- I'm not too picky. I'm crate trained and house trained. I get along with other dogs. Cats are ok I guess. I don't really understand them but I leave them alone to do whatever it is that cats do. I really need a family who will work on some training with me. Sometimes I get so excited to see my people I get very jumpy. I also get scared when I see new people so I bark a lot and pull on the leash. I need a ... (Read More)family that will be a little patient with that stuff and they will see I can be a really good boy! I love to cuddle and get cozy under blankies. Maybe we can be best buds and I can keep you warm this winter! My adoption fee is $200, which goes toward the cost of my shots and vetting. If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at www.perfectpooches.org under the 'Adoption Process' tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested ( as appropriate), fecal tested, and microchipped. (Less)

He is looking for a family to share all their love with him. He is a very energetic and would do best with a person or family that has lots of their time to spend with him. He still needs some with commands, but we will continue to work with him daily on these. He does know how to sit when asked and he does come when called or by whistling. He is also doing well on potty training, but this does not take away from his great loving personality. He loves children off all ages and does very ... (Read More)good with younger kids! He just gets little excited at introductions. He is a very sociable dog with humans and with other animals. Beta would love to have another dog to play with him, but would do fine alone too. He is still unsure about cats but has not mistreated one yet and has done fine with them. He's just bit curious. He does like to be in a cage, and would do best in larger kennel or fenced yard. He does great on a leash and loves his walks, but we also work with him off leash and does very good with staying next to you! He has been around livestock and does really well. Beta needs a little work knowing that he doesn't need to herd constantly, that it makes everyone tired. If you are interested in meeting Beta or have any more questions please email or contact us. Beta would love to join someone in their journey and share all his excitement with them!

Aside from looks, this is how we know he has some chocolate lab in him. He is a social pup that like to be included. We recently moved out of our physical location and he was there with us the whole time. Walking back and forth with us, laying down, playing, learning new trainings from ourselves and other ... (Read More)dog owner friends. Best way to describe this dog is happy. Always happy. He lets you know when he needs to go out. He loves kisses so much that we named him MooShu which means 'kiss, kiss'. He thinks he's a lapdog and particularly likes female humans, although he likes everyone. Also, rides well in the car. We found MooShu as a stray in the city. He was running around and was very skinny, had fleas, and no microchip. Three sets of neighbors (including ourselves) got him on a leash to have a place to sleep. Since then the three parties have been paying for him to be checked up at the vet, have paid for his shots, flea treatment, food, crate, bones and leash. He has been neutered, received all shots, heart and flea treatments/medications, and a good bath. We put him on Lost Dogs of Illinois and have had no response. He didnt look very well taken care of, but was such a sweet pup at the time that we all decided to help in rehoming him. We are the household that offered to home him for now because we have a large enough house. The other neighbors either have 3 dogs, or cats. MooShu is now ready to move out of his foster home and into his FURRever home. We would keep him, but we have a little furry kitty named Kyanite, and they don't get along. Like most terrier type dogs, he runs after her when she is around. We are currently keeping them in separate rooms as we foster him back to health and rehome him. lab-american-staffordshire-terrier-mix-for-adoption-chicago MooShu comes with dog crate and behaves very well once he is in it. He is house trained and will not poop or pee inside. He is a very chill dog when given the attention. We often talk about how he would be a great porch dog on some property. We walk him 2-4 times a day and then other than that he kinda just hangs out with us. Again, we love this pup, but are not able to be good dog owners. We work from home, then travel a lot for extended periods of time. Kitty life is much more manageable for us and we want to be able to hang out with our kitty more in all parts of our house. All Current shots with Anti-Cruelty Society Paperwork Comes with crate, food, harness, leash, and free animal communication session (if you're into that). (Less)

Bluetick Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    REQUEST TO MEET OX HERE: http://findmypetahome.com/ox/ There is a $75 adoption/rehoming fee. All supplies will be included. Is your idea of a workout a trip from the couch to the refrigerator and back? Are you laid back and lazy, preferring to binge watch Netflix rather than compete in a Triathlon? If that's you, I am your perfect match. Despite my long and lean physique, I am the world's laziest dog. I hate going for long walks! Cuddling on the couch, on the other hand, is something I revel in! I am a very healthy Blue-Tick Coonhound mix. I am just 3 to 5 years old and ... (Read More)extremely handsome and well behaved. I am a shy soul. It takes me a while to warm up to people, but once you have my trust, I am your most loyal friend and companion. I am neutered, up to date on my shots, crate trained, house broken and very well behaved. I love children and adults, and get along very well with other dogs. I don't like to go to the dog park, though - too much noise and commotion for me. My only issue (if you really could call it an issue) is that I don't care for loud noises. Thunder, fireworks or sudden large noises scare the living daylights out of me. I am also kind of fearful of buses and bikes. City living really isn't for me, but a home in the country with a nice, securely fenced yard would be ideal. I would love the quiet of country life. Having a great family to cherish me is also on my wish list. I want someone to devote myself to, who will appreciate a low-key, low maintenance, low-energy pooch like me. I have such a handsome face and unique markings. Definitely one of 'nature's designer dogs'. My owner loves me to bits, but he is a very active person. He had hoped I would go with him on runs, hiking and other activities, but I am more of a homebody. I really need to be in a country home where I can stay in my comfortable surroundings. A nice back yard to explore at my own pace, and some nice kids to spend time with would be perfect for me. Please offer me a loving, forever home today. Let's curl up on the couch together and watch NetFlix.

Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This Pitbull was in a situation of being dropped off at a shelter so I said I would take her to foster her until they could find her a home. They never really got back to me so that is why we are here:). I believe she is just a Pit Bull I cannot verify that but she seems to be and my vet thinks so too. SOOO SWEET just has a few little ticks that with some time and patience could be worked out. She is very smart I have been able to teach her things very quickly. Her first home was at 5 wks someone had left the litter on a street corner at 4 wks. The family that adopted her at 5 wks was NOT good. The male adult in the household was a heavy ... (Read More)drinker and was VERY hard on her. She had a bladder infection and couldnt hold it and he would beat her every time she went potty. When I got her she still had the bladder infection and was so sad everytime she went potty even when it was outside and i would be praising her for going. She is very emotional and VERY caring. The only thing I have real concern about right now is I have a 5 yr old daughter and she really loves her but bc of her past I dont feel safe leaving her alone with her. If she runs she gets VERY excited and has fallen and gotten a bit funny about it. Her only bad habit is jumping NO MATTER what i have tried she just keeps doing it its like a 'I'm sorry' kinda thing and the more you try to reprimand or correct she does it more like she cant help herself. I now just say down and dont interact or pet at all until shes down. Seems to be getting better. You can see she understands just very apologetic all the time. I have an old 14 yr old Golden mix that she has shown to be dominant over but not a good judge becuase of her age i feel like if there was another well behaved confident dog that was good with other dogs she would respect. I dont know that for sure so maybe better without other animals. When she was young she was brought up with other dogs and cats. She went after my cat once but stopped chasing him as soon as I called her. Definitely needs a home with someone that has experience with breeds like her kind because she would make an awesome, caring, loving companion. I just do not have the time I have 4 kids a horse rescue and everything that goes with that. She NEEDS to have the time and I believe she will make an AWESOME dog/life-long friend. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-16-00008Soffie (female)

Beagle Mix    Age: 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* Here ye, Here ye! If you are looking for a princess who will spoil you with love as much as you spoil me with attention and affection, I am Soffie, a 6-year-old beagle mix looking for a forever 'Royal Family' to call my own with help from my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation. I have the traditionally regal 'tri-color' beagle markings of black, white, and tan fur, and I am a slim and trim 22 pounds. My legs are a little longer than a full-blooded beagle, and I have a uniquely adorable face (doesn't my black 'eyeliner' perfectly ... (Read More)highlight my beautiful eyes?!) so you could consider me a one-of-a-kind stunner! Best of all, I have a bright, fun personality to match my cute looks. My previous owner sadly passed away and I was brought to the shelter in southern Illinois from which I was originally adopted as a puppy. After waiting patiently for a few weeks with no adoption interest, Fetching Tails scooped in to save me and promised to find me a new loving forever home. My foster mommy can tell I was well-taken care of by my previous owner, and that I was definitely a spoiled girl! I adore people, and should probably run my own kissing booth because I love to dole out them out generously. I am very happy when I get to sit on the couch next to my humans, and settle down nicely after a quick cuddle session. I think I would do best with older kids (my human foster brother is a teenager and I love him) because I do get a little nervous when people move to fast or surprise me. I think active young kiddos might be too much excitement for me! I also think I would be pretty happy to be your one and only canine companion: I am used to being the queen of the house and like all your attention for myself. I was my previous owner's only pet so I don't really know how to coexist with another dog; it took some time for me to adjust to cohabitating with my doggie foster brother Slugger, and I still don't really like to share my toys with him. So with slow introductions and a calm personality, I could live with another dog, but I also would be very happy as your only regal beagle! And what a great doggie buddy I would be for my lucky forever humans! I am already potty and crate trained; I have my own bedroom in which to hang out at my foster home when the humans run errands, and I keep my space neat and tidy. I love to follow foster momma around the house, so I would be happy with humans who are home more often than not, but when you do have to leave me home I just settle down in my blankets with my favorite toys. If you are looking for a good workout buddy, I love going for long walks (and sprints when I see a squirrel!) I also love to play with my humans, and if you have a fenced yard I think we could have so much fun together running around! I still have more to learn (like every dog, there is always a new trick to master!) and Fetching Tails likes to encourage all adopters to take a few training classes with their new doggie. Foster mommy is helping me work on basic commands like 'sit,' 'stay,' and 'off,' and I think we could really master those in a basics training class. I am inquisitive and smart so I am sure I would get them 'down' perfectly in no time! And I also put my inquisitive nature to good use: I helped foster mommy find a piece of a dinner roll that was stuck in a chair! I'm so helpful and just aim to please, even if that means not giving up until I help clean up every crumb! If I sound like I could be the perfect princess to complete your royal family, please get in touch with Fetching Tails soon and let them know you are ready for your 'happily ever after' with Soffie! XOXO, Soffie 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 (Less)

Margo is two years old, and she arrived at ACL as a stray. She lived happily in foster care for a couple of weeks, and her foster mom reports that she's a very sweet ...

Margo is a Jack Russell, through and through, so she can be a loudmouth. She'll need a freestanding home so that her barkiness doesn't bother the neighbors. She'll do well with children 10 and up, but her dream home has just a couple people who she can devote her whole heart to! (Less)

    *MUST LIVE WITHIN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi! Are you looking for a well-mannered, playful but gentle, happy-go-lucky friend to call your new companion? My name is Wendy and I am the whole package! Sweet, friendly, easy-going, loving, the list goes on and on! And lucky for you I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am an 8-year-old beautiful Shepherd mix; don't let that number fool you, though, because I definitely don't act like a senior. I have a lot of pep in my step and a lifetime of love to give the special family who chooses to give me ... (Read More)my forever home! My foster momma saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control. Can you believe this: my former owners dumped me there because I wasn't a good guard dog and wouldn't bite people! I am one of the most loving dogs you will ever meet, why on earth would I want to bite people?! I spent all of my time either in the basement or yard at my last residence, so I am soaking up all the attention and affection I can get now that foster mom has promised me the good life from now on. I have wonderful house manners: I am potty trained, and am so relaxed on my comfy, cozy dog bed that I don't make a mess of things when you have to leave the house for work or errands so I don't need to be crated. I also don't jump up on furniture; even though foster momma encourages me to sit on the couch with her while we watch TV, I politely decline because I am so happy to have a bed of my own near her feet. I love to be pet and get a good back scratch, but I'm not a climb-on-your-lap cuddler. If I feel like it's been a while since I received a good back massage, I will raise my paw like a human kiddo raising her hand in class to ask you to pet me. Isn't that super cute and so polite? Sweet as sugar, that's me! Remember how I said I have a lot of pep in my step? I love going on walks, so I hope my forever family will enjoy strolling around the neighborhood with me. It is so fun to explore and say hi to all our friends in the neighborhood. I am a very friendly girl; I get along with other dogs and like all the humans I have met so far. I am just so happy to finally feel real love and kindness from people that I like to share that feeling with everyone I meet! Other than being excited to go on walks, I am pretty laid-back. I'm not really interested in playing with toys; I do like the occasional sniff around foster momma's big fenced in backyard. I'm so easygoing that I think I would do well in any type of home: if you are quiet and chill I can happily relax with you, and if you are active and like to be outdoorsy I can be your companion to keep you company on adventures! I love car rides, so I would be happy to go with you to explore the world! I have waited so long for a family to love me and treat me the way all dogs deserve. If you think I could be the perfect friend for you, please get in touch with my foster momma as soon as possible! I just can't wait to start my happily ever after! Love, Wendy If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult


    **Benny was abandoned and will need to go to a shelter if a home for him isn't found** From finder: I found a pitbull mix in my hallway at one of my properties. Based on what my tenant said the neighborhood kids were throwing rocks at him and abusing him. As if that wasn't enough his owners who were the neighbors moved away this past weekend and purposely left this sweet boy behind. I couldn't bring myself to put him back on the streets or take him to a shelter where he would potentially be put down so I took him to the hospital. They checked for a microchip but he didn't have one and they were kind enough to give him some flea ... (Read More)medication, food and a nice bath. We tried to find a rescue group or someone to take him in for the time being but we've had no luck. My sister is being kind enough to let me keep him in her insulated garage until we figure something out. His basic necessities are covered, but he can't live in a garage forever, and we know he deserves so much more than this. I have emailed and called several rescue organizations but they are either full to capacity or have told me that they need to rescue him from a shelter. I am truly at a loss and don't know who else to contact at this point.

Lab 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, I am Miss Penelope, and if you are looking for a walking buddy and a cuddle bug, I am definitely the sweet girl for you! I am a one-of-a-kind 3-year-old, 55-pound Boxer/Labrador mix, and my beautiful good looks will definitely help us stand out when we go for a stroll in the neighborhood. Everyone will stop you to say 'Wow, what a gorgeous doggie you have!' and they would be right. I am a brindle beauty, which is basically like a really unique tie dye pattern! I also have a white chest and paws, so I look like I am ... (Read More)dressed up for a party. My deep chocolate eyes are very soulful and all you have to do is look into them to see how much I truly adore you. Because as pretty and special as I am on the outside, my personality is even better! And best of all for you: I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. Fetching Tails saved me as part of the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program (CRISP); my previous owners couldn't keep me any longer and brought me to Chicago Animal Care & Control. Thankfully FTF volunteers were there that day to help prevent owner surrenders from having to go inside the busy, loud shelter, and I found rescue immediately. My foster mom has been treating me like a princess ever since. I love going for long walks to explore the big, wide world. I would love a family that will take me on lots of adventures so we can stay healthy and fit together! I love all people, especially children, so I would be an excellent family dog. But I would prefer to be your one and only furry friend; I like to be the queen of the castle and have all your attention focused on me! I am also a very smart girl; I am crate and potty trained. I can be left alone for a long time without getting mischievous; foster mom can leave me for 8-10 hours when she has to go to work and I am perfectly behaved while she is gone. And I even know a few commands including sit, stay, paw, down, and come. I love to learn new things; Fetching Tails likes to encourage adopters to take their new pets to a few training courses, and I think it would be great fun to learn even more tricks! Does a sweet, beautiful love bug who also enjoys being your workout buddy sound like the perfect companion for you? Get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails as soon as possible and tell them you want to give Miss Penelope a happy tail! Love, Miss Penelope If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Border Terrier Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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 fun-loving, fearless, super cuddly little goofball to love and keep you company? My name is Sonata and I could be the little doll for you! I am a 4.5-pound, 3-month-old scruffy terrier mix, and I am looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation! I don't mean to sound vain, but I really am cute as a button and will keep you endlessly entertained if you decide to make me part of your family! I have luxurious black hair, with little white spots on my back legs that make me look like I ... (Read More)am wearing socks. I also have a little white spot on my chinny-chin-chin to help highlight my pretty dog smile. Fetching Tails Foundation saved my momma, siblings, and me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where we were brought by our previous owner because they were evicted from their home. My mom and siblings have all been adopted; I am having a blast at my foster home, but I am ready to find my forever home now, too! I do great with all dogs big and small (foster mommy laughs at me because even though I am the smallest dog at Fetching Tails, I love to find the biggest dogs around at the adoption show to play with!) I just want to play, play, play with everyone I meet! Fetching Tails requires all adopters of puppies to enroll us in training classes since we have lots to learn about the world. Personally, I think that sounds like a lot of fun, and if there is one thing to know about me it's that I LOVE fun activities! And it would give me a chance to further socialize with other dogs, which is my favorite activity ever. I also like to play with my toys, play with my human friends, and did I mention yet that I like to play with other dogs? When I think of my forever home, I know I want another playful dog to be my BFF so we can keep each other company and endlessly entertained. When I am done playing, I also enjoy a good snuggle with my foster momma. I hope my forever family likes to cuddle, because when I sleep I like to be near my humans! I can be left alone for a few hours while you go to work, but I would love to have humans who are able to be home with me a lot too since I love to be near you as much as possible. Even though I am tiny, I have a very big heart and want to share my love and love for adventure with my lucky family. If a playful, brave, spunky, and most of all happy little girl sounds like the perfect pup for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails and say 'I want to make a lifetime of music with Sonata!' Puppy kisses and cuddles, Sonata Please read all adoption requirements and adoption fees below! *TRAINING IS REQUIRED! THE PUPPY MUST BE SIGNED UP FOR TRAINING AFTER 14 DAYS OF THE ADOPTION!

    Hi. My name is Kaleb. I am a 10 month old Great Pyrenees mix. I am from Kentucky, but now I live with a foster family in Illinois. They have two other dogs for me to play with and they even brought my sister, Kynlee, home with them to stay too! I weigh 60 pounds and am still growing!

I am house broken and crate trained. I do very well in my crate and I sleep in there through the night. My foster mom says I am a chewer, but she puts a lot of toys throughout the house ... (Read More)that I can chew. She says I am not aloud to chew the socks that I find. I also like to sneak my toys outside sometimes and hide them. But my foster mom has extras so I always have something to chew in the house. I also love to play tug with a rope with the other dogs or with a human. Meet Kaleb! Great Pyr/ Lab Mix 10 months old I get along well with other dogs, but I don't know how I would act if I saw a kitty. I love walks! My foster mom says I walk very well on a leash.

My foster family tries to tell me to sit before they give me a treat, but I don't always understand it. I am getting better though. I love to be next to people. I love to curl up on the couch or lay by their feet. My foster home also has three children ages 5-12 and I am very gentle with them. Also, I am a big fan of belly rubs!!

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey everybody! Allow me to introduce myself! My name is Cortez, I'm a 5 year old Retriever Mix and I need some help. You see, I've had quite the rough life and I can't seem to catch a break. I was originally rescued by PACT when I was only a young pup and was adopted out rather quickly to what was thought to be my forever home, well until it wasn't. I have a hard time explaining to people what happened to me (ya know, with the language barrier and all) but what they do know is that I was found roaming the streets, trying to survive on my own when animal control came around and scooped me up. I spent a long time in that noisy cage and was ... (Read More)happy to be saved and brought back to my original rescuers. They got me back on my paws and into another home but I need a little more attention and space than they can provide for me so it's time to find my forever human now. I'm a really sweet, laid back buddy and really need a great, experienced family to get to know me and be my forever. I'm strikingly handsome, kind of a goof, and know some 'commands' (I just call them cool tricks!) like sit, stay, lay down, and may FAVORITE roll over! I also LOVE to run and sniff EVERYTHING, so I'd really like a yard to play in and maybe even a running buddy. I can't really explain to everybody what happened to me during all those years but I do know that sometimes little kids scare me and I'd rather have older siblings or be an only child (I hear they get lots of treats and don't have to share!). I also am still working on trusting furry friends again so I'd do better in a home, where the only fur on your pants is mine smile emoticon:) I know there are tons of dogs and cats looking to make you their forever person but I'm really hoping you or someone you know can take a look at me and give me the chance I've been waiting for, for a long time. I don't want to be alone forever and miss out on having a family of my own. So please if you could contact adoptions@pacthumanesociety.org and ask about me, I'll promise to love and slobber on you FOREVER! Love, Cortez (Less)

Foxhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Peanut. I am an 8-month old Hound Mix. I weigh about 40 pounds right now, but am hoping I grow into my long legs. I still act like I weigh 10 pounds. My foster family thinks I'm a little goofy when I get running too fast and slide sideways on the hardwood floors like a baby giraffe on an ice pond. Speaking of ponds, I keep having to be told to stay out of the pond in the back yard, but I just love water and it's right there! I absolutely love playing with other dogs, kids and whoever else can keep up. I don't mind the cats, even though I have a feeling they don't like dogs very much. I walk great on a leash and am ready to ... (Read More)go on long walks because being a hound, I was born to sniff around. Even though I like having everyone at home with me, I do fine being in a crate while the others go to work or school. I am still working on being housebroken, but am a very good listener and really smart, so I know it can't be too difficult for me. I am an active, playful pup, but I do love to settle in for the night and snuggle. I am neutered and up to date on all my shots, so let me know if you want to meet and possibly add me to your family. I would be the happiest dog in the world!! Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. 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: 16-09-01-00161Tori (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hey there! My name is Tori and I'm an affectionate, intelligent, and energetic young lady who is seeking an active, loving forever family. I'm particularly interested in people who enjoy a good walk, like daily playtime, and love to cuddle. I'm certain you'll fall in love with me when you meet me! I'm a 29-pound American Staffordshire Terrier and Labrador mix, with something else mixed in there that allows me to be so petite. At nearly eight months of age, I'm likely to stay medium-sized. In addition to my other wonderful ... (Read More)attributes, I also am a very fortunate girl, for several reasons. First, I was brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control by a nice man who saw me get hit by a tractor trailer, and knew I needed immediate medical help. Second, I'm very lucky that my injuries weren't far worse than they were: I only suffered fractures to both sides of my pelvis. Third, my friends at Fetching Tails stepped up to provide long-term care for me. Finally, I am so fortunate not to have needed orthopedic surgery; the surgeon said my fractures were the kind that could heal on their own with strict crate rest! So here I am, ready to find my forever home, my very own happily-ever-after 'tail.' I mentioned I want a family or person who enjoys a good walk: I will make a wonderful walking companion for you. As you can see from my picture, I am quite a show piece on the end of your arm as we stroll the neighborhood. People will definitely want to pet me, because I'm such a friendly little girl. If a leisurely hike through the forest preserve is more your style, I'm on board for that, too! This whole concept of walking on a leash is a bit new to me, but I took to the idea like a fish to water. I'm working really hard on this skill so that I'll be ready for our jaunts. Another favorite activity is'|just being in motion. I'm very inquisitive about the world around me, so I love to follow my foster mom as she cooks, does laundry, or any of those other interesting things that humans do. I really enjoy having two furry foster sisters as playmates, so I think I'd like to have a fur sibling - and maybe a human sibling or two as well! I'm good with kids, but I can be a little too playful for little ones, so kids over the age of 8 or so might be best for me. I'm currently fostered with a medium-sized, 3-year-old pittie, a 10-year-old Rottweiler, and I was fostered with a 7-year-old Schnauzer mix until she got adopted. I have a blast playing tug of war or just wrestling with my pittie sister, or stealing chew toys from my Rottie sister. I do really well with dogs of all sizes, but I prefer other medium-sized dogs closer to my age so we can play! Oh, and I'm hoping my forever home will have a fenced yard; I'm used to running and exploring in the backyard where I'm being fostered. My absolute favorite activity, though, is snuggling with my humans! I have recently learned to use steps to get on the couch, or to jump up there on my own. I like to curl up next to my foster parents, or place my chin on foster dad's arm while looking lovingly at him, and I've recently discovered I can snuggle behind my foster mom, between her and the back of the couch. I've also been known to cuddle with one of my foster sisters, either on the couch, on dog beds, or even in my crate. Speaking of the crate, I am definitely crate trained. I had to spend the better part of four to six weeks crated while my fractures healed, so I'm very accustomed to being in there. Foster mom recommends crating puppies when you leave the house anyway, and I agree. It prevents my inquisitive nature from getting me into trouble when I'm not supervised. I'm house trained, but like most young dogs, I still have to be supervised after I finish playing so I don't forget and sneak off to do my business. The dogs in my foster home are on a pretty regular potty schedule. Foster mom and dad work opposite shifts, so we usually aren't left alone for long, but I have occasionally been left for 8 hours without any potty accidents in my crate. That will only get better with practice, and as I get older. Overall, I'm a pretty flexible, go-with-the-flow personality who just wants to enjoy life! So what do you think? Don't I sound like a great match for anyone looking for a young, active, sweet, affectionate and smart girl? Wanna meet me? Just contact my friends at FTF and tell them Tori sent you! If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!
