Rescue Me ID: 17-09-25-00360Blaise (male)

Beagle Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Blaise has a burning desire...to meet you! He's a 6 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix who arrived at ACL as a stray. We were able to locate his owners, who said wonderful things about Blaise. Sadly, despite loving him very much, they were not in a position to bring him back home again. Blaise lived happily with another small dog in his previous home, and we think he would enjoy a canine companion again! He's an affectionate, intelligent dog who prefers to make the first move in relationships. He's a vocal boy who won't hesitate to let you know how he's feeling, so he'll be best in a free-standing home only. He loves to go for walks, look out ... (Read More)the window, and have a snuggle with his people. Blaise appreciates maturity in his humans, so he'll do best with gentle, respectful families of adults only. If Blaise gets to initiate the relationship, he's yours for life! (Less)

    As we head into the cold seasons, think of spring - think of Primrose! She's a beautiful 2 year old American Bulldog mix who arrived at ACL when her owner became very ill and was not able to care for her any longer. Prim is a total dream dog - she's so affectionate, sweet, and happy that she can't help but love everyone she meets! Primrose is an active dog who loves to go for walks and have active play time, and afterwards, she's only too happy to curl up in your lap like a 50 pound lap dog! Prim will do great with kids of all ages who don't mind a bouncy dog in their face! She enjoys other dogs after an appropriate introduction, and we ... (Read More)think she could learn to adjust to the right cat if you took it slow. Prim has the potential to be a perfect dog - help her realize her potential today! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-22-00391Thor (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Meet Thor! He's an 8 mo- 1 yr old beautiful and playful Shepard mix puppy. We don't know much about his past, but it seems like it was a bit rocky as he was picked up as a stray. He loves attention but needs a home with patience. He is VERY treat motivated so he's caught on to house breaking very quickly. He loves all kinds of toys, bones and ropes and is not aggressive over his toys or food, nor does he chew on things he shouldn't. He loves taking walks and does well on a leash but can use some extra help when distractions come along. He loves people and is very friendly but only wants to cuddle when he's ready to. He loves all dogs but ... (Read More)he's a bit too playful for small dogs. We think Thor may have been left in crates too long that were too small for him based on some of the scars on his body so he does have some anxiety over his crate that a kong gets him through. Thor is talkative but if he's 'talking' to you, he either needs to go out or needs to play. Thor's ideal home: high energy with someone who likes the outdoors, running, hiking, etc. and another high energy dog that can keep up with his playful demeanor. He loves all things water and would do best in a home with a fenced yard where he can be supervised. He is very smart but can be stubborn when he's still in the mood to play so patience is a must. He is eager to please and 'good boy' and hot dogs get his tail wagging like no other. He does well with children but he's still learning to take treats nicely and his play can be a bit much for smaller children. At the end of the day, Thor just needs a family that's willing to be dedicated to him as much as he is to them. If you're looking for an active best friend, look no further. 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)

I am about 6-7yrs old Fully vetted/neutered Microchipped . I am ready to meet my new family so if you are looking for a great new family member here I am just contact TheFirstStepRescue@sbcglobal.net . My story: I had my very first family when I was just a baby but they really didn't take care of me so my Mommy grabbed me up and started to take care of me. She taught me tricks, some commands and how to be a polite dog and she did such a wonderful job with me. One thing she didn't work on was how not to run out the door, I did love to run around if you let me out the door without a leash I would visit the whole neighborhood but I lived with her most of my life. Then... things changed..... my Mommy got busy and started to travel....she was spending less time with me and I was not getting the attention she thought I deserved so Mommy decided to find a new family for me. I went to a new family with kids and everything, what dog wouldn't love that but because they didn't pay attention and just let me out the door I took off to run around and visit the neighbors, they didn't try to find me and I ended up at the shelter. My Mommy called my new family and they never came for me and my Mommy could no longer care for me nor find the right home for me so she surrendered me sadly to the shelter and the shelter looked for a rescue for me cause they just loved me!! Now here I am at The First Step Rescue. You see I love to be outside and given the chance I will run out the door and whomever adopts me will need to use extra caution with me and doors and will need to work with me on this issue with training. .

    Woof! My name is Malania. I'm a young dog, around 9 months old. I am medium-sized at 35 lbs. I am good with other dogs, and I'm also good with cats! When I'm not trying to hold the leash in my mouth and walk myself, I make a good walking companion because I'm not a puller. I like playing, but I also like cuddling up with a stuffed animal and just relaxing. Do you think I could be your foster or forever dog? Please email kloewe66@sbcglobal.net for more information on giving me a home. Note that you MUST be in the Chicagoland area (Schaumburg and vicinity) to foster for/adopt from Almost Home Foundation.

Olaf landed at the Richland County Animal Shelter in Illinois shelter when his human could no longer take care of him. His original owner passed away and the guy's son tried to keep him on his land.

He has a jagged scar on his right shoulder from the barbed wire. Their animal control officers dubbed him the sweetest dog to ever live and sent him to me in Chicago to find him a home preferably without cows to chase! He is perfectly housebroken and instead of being crate-trained, he likes to hop onto the top of his crate to sleep. He is best with someone who is home more often than not that enjoys long walks. He doesn't seem to know commands but he takes treats incredibly gently from your fingers. It's interesting, for a country dog, he has no fear of trains, or any other loud noises ... and no, he's not deaf! Olaf is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm and fecal-tested and on monthly heartworm preventative. To meet and possibly adopt Olaf, please contact sheri@petraits.com for an adoption application. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Petraits.

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-19-00234Andrew (male)

Bichon Frise Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Andrew is a 6 pound male Teddy Bear (Bichon Frise/Shih Tzu) born 01/06/17. He came to us because he had a heart murmur which was later diagnosed as Tetralogy of Fallot. He takes a 1/4 of a Atenolol pill twice a day which cost less than $0.05 a dose and will need to see a cardiologist every 6 months (approx $500.00) to ensure the meds are correct. There is no way to determine what Andrew's live expectancy will be as we have been told by the cardiologist, 'it all depends on how well he responds to the medication.' She also stated that she has been treating another dog with the same diagnosis for over 6 years. Andrew needs to be in a home with ... (Read More)very little activity as his activity needs to be limited, although he doesn't want it to be. Therefore, a home with no small children or young dogs is best for Andrew. He is UTD on all his shots including rabies, bordetella, microchip and flea/heartworm preventative. Andrew can never undergo surgery; therefore, can't be neutered. If you are interested in giving this sweet boy a home, please complete and return the attached application for consideration. Since we are 100% foster based rescue, only approved applications will be contacted to set up a meet and greet with the fur baby. We do not allow shipping and do not transport so you must be able to drive to Edwardsville/O'Fallon, Illinois area for meet and greet/adoption. Adoption fee will be discussed only after we determine the best home for Andrew. Thanks (Less)

    Meet Mary Elizabeth! 1 year old Coonhound/Bloodhound Mix Approx. 70 lbs. Mary Elizabeth is a sweet southern belle who had traveled North to find a family to love her. She is a high energy dog who needs a family who is willing to continue working with her. When Mary Elizabeth first arrived, she was big, clumsy, not aware of her size and had never lived in a home. In order to allow Mary Elizabeth to find the best family, we enrolled her in training at DePaw University, a local training facility. Mary Elizabeth has passed her classes with flying colors and is now ready to find her forever family, that can continue working with her as she ... (Read More)grows! She is mouthy however she has a very gentle mouth and just wants to play. She has grown so fast she is very uncoordinated and is just now growing into her body. She is a typical goofy lovable hound who will make a great family pet. Bloodhounds are relatively slow to mature, hitting adolescence at about one year and not reaching full maturity until at least age two. During that adolescent period, the bloodhound is likely to be boisterous, clumsy, curious about any interesting scent and fearless about eating anything that smells interesting. The bloodhound is a gentle, patient, noble and mild-mannered animal. They are especially good with children and are known to be exceptionally tolerant of tots who clamber over them. They also generally get along well with other animals. If you're interested in learning more about Mary Elizabeth, email safehavendogsil@yahoo.com for an application! 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.

    Meet Ziggy! This cute little boy is around 5-6 years old and sweet as can be! Ziggy did great when tested with cats, and also did ok when tested with dogs, but does much better with smaller dogs and dogs willing to give him space to warm up. New things are still a little scary for Ziggy, but he is quick to warm up and just loves affection. His wirey little beard could win anyone over, along with his silly, loving personality.

Treeing Walker Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, my name is Ritz! 2yr old, 55 lbs Hound mix My foster mom says I am a mischievous sweetheart with warm caramel eyes and a face made of velvet! I am looking for my special place in this big world. I've been adopted twice and through no fault of my own, returned twice. Although I love my foster families and get along with everyone I've met, I really want my own forever home, a place where a girl can plant some roots! I am fully housebroken and great with kids and other dogs. Cats do not bother me and I love to chew on my toys and not shoes or furniture! I have never gotten myself into trouble when left alone which is good because I ... (Read More)really don't like being in a crate. Seriously, it gives me major anxiety! I have a tricky leg from an old injury that makes me limp a little and as a result, I'm not really a jogging type of girl.... unless there are burgers involved of course! I don't let anything hold me back from having a great time running around and wrestling with my foster brothers though! I love playing outside and I'm a happy puppy even if I can just lay down and soak up some sun. My favorite thing to do is cuddle up on the couch or bed next to someone special, so if you're looking for a soft and sweet best friend who can keep you warm this winter..... I just might be your forever pup! Come by and meet me, let's see if we're a perfect match! 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: 17-09-12-00150Abilene (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy, y'all! My name is Abilene, and if you are looking for a sweet, snuggly Southern Belle to call your little darlin' for life, please consider giving me the loving forever family I have dreamed about for so long! I am a 2-year-old Retriever mix, and I am 40 pounds of pure love and devotion. I have light blonde fur, and the most soulful eyes you will ever see. As soon as I look at you with my precious gaze, it is very hard not to love me immediately! My sweet personality shines right through my beautiful eyes and smile. I am a Hurricane Harvey survivor, and met my friends from Fetching Tails at a large intake facility in Texas where my ... (Read More)previous owner surrendered me and a few other dogs after their home was destroyed in the storm. It was sad and confusing to lose the only home I have ever known, but I am honestly feeling very lucky to be a part of the Fetching family now because I have some signs of neglect and need some TLC to feel 100 percent again. I had bad skin and ear infections, and I am also heartworm positive. I am getting all the medical care I need now, and am already feeling better now that my pretty blonde fur is starting to grow back healthy! I am a cuddly, quiet girl and am loving all the attention I'm receiving in my foster home! My favorite activities include following my foster mommy around and climbing up on her lap every chance I get so I can a belly rub or head scratch. When I think of my forever home, I would love to have a kind, patient, loving family who will give me all the attention I love! Although I previously lived with other dogs, I think I would prefer to be your only furry friend so I can be the queen of the castle and have all your attention for myself. I can be shy when I first meet new human friends, but I bond quickly to anyone who lets me sniff their hand and then offers me a belly rub. I have pretty great house manners and am a quiet roommate, too. I am fully potty trained, and I also adore my crate: I think of it as a safe space and love to go in mine to relax on my dog bed and take a nap when the door is left open. I do fine home alone when my foster parents are at work or running errands; I nap the day away and am happy to receive pets when they come home. I enjoy going for strolls in the neighborhood with foster mommy and walk well on a leash, though I do get excited when I see a squirrel and want to play chase (so probably best if there are no small critters or kitties in my forever home!) Overall, I am a very calm girl who is content to snuggle and receive lots of love from my humans. I would like a calm, loving forever home to call my own, especially since I will be recovering from heartworm treatment. My foster mommy will be happy to explain in more detail the process, and what I need to thrive! If a sweet, affectionate, devoted lady sounds like the perfect canine companion for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon! After the life I have had, I am so excited to finally get my happily ever after! Love, Abilene If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us at Info@fetchingtailsfoundation.org Adoption Requirements: Be at least 21 years of age Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) Have a valid ID with current address Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment Lives in 50 mile radius of Itasca within the Illinois border Adoption Fees: Senior dog - 8 years and up, $75 Adult or young dog - 6 months to 7 years, $250 Puppies - under 6 months, $350 (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Meet Maggie 4-5 year old lab/hound mix 35 pounds Maggie came to us from Alabama after spending several years in a shelter. She is a timid but sweet girl. Once she warms up to you, and it doesn't take long, she cannot get enough attention. She loves her humans. She will come seeking head rubs and belly rubs. She will jump up on the couch for a cuddle. She gets along well with her canine foster brothers and enjoys running and playing in the yard. She will also help you keep your yard chipmunk and rabbit free! She would do well in a home with another dog to show her the ropes or as an only dog with a family willing to give her lots of ... (Read More)attention. She loves to go on walks and is learning to walk on a leash. After a romp outside or a good walk she is happy to curl up in a sunny spot or be your couch buddy while you watch tv. Maggie is housebroken and crate trained and sleeps through the night in her crate without a peep. She likes to chase cats so she would appreciate a cat free home to help her avoid temptations. Maggie had a cyst removed from her ear after she arrived which required a small piece of her ear to be removed. The cyst was tested and was benign. Her vets did a stellar job with her surgery and though she looks a little more unique, she is still beautiful! And she is very soft! Maggie is a bit of a contortionist and will need a new home with a solid fence or would need to be leashed at all times. Even though Maggie has thrived in her foster home, because of her 'sheltered' life, she can be fearful of new things. She went through training at Woofbeach to help her overcome her fears. Woofbeach trainers will work with her new family to help them continue her training. Maggie is a sweet girl who just wants to be loved. She is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccines. 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)

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Why hello there! You look like you in the market for a good looking, sweet and submissive buddy to be your forever BFF. Is that true? Good, because I am in the market for a loving, fun forever home! My name is Slim, and I am a 1-year-old, 54-pound hound mix. I have gorgeous rust-colored fur, unique hazel-colored eyes that I use to gaze at you lovingly, and a big, sparkly smile because I am one happy-go-lucky fella! My friends from Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from a shelter in southern Illinois. I didn't have the best ... (Read More)past life; when I was found living chained up outside, I didn't have food or water and my doggie friend was already deceased. It was a super heartbreaking situation, and I was SO happy to be saved! Despite everything I went through, I am the sweetest guy around and I just love attention and affection from my human friends. I would love a forever home with people who are kind and will return all the love I have to give. I get along with everyone I meet, people and dog. I would be a great family dog. I am attentive and submissive, so I listen to directions well. I think I am a smart guy and would love to prove it to my people, so Fetching Tails will require my adopters to sign me up for training classes so I can learn all the basics and commands I've never been taught before. I am a people pleaser, so I bet we will be the class valedictorians in no time! In fact, I pretty much love life and would be a great buddy to take on adventures because I even love car rides! If you think I could be the boy for you and want to give me the life I have only ever dreamed about, please get in touch with my friends from Fetching Tails soon! Kisses and tail wags, Slim If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Howdy! My name is Little Chief, and I am a young dog with a bright, happy personality who is looking for a forever family through Fetching Tails Foundation! If you are looking for a cuddly companion who will shower you with kisses for many years to come, I am the perfect friend for you! I am an 11-month-old 'pittie' mix, and I currently weigh in at around 40 pounds. I will be on the smaller side when I am full grown, so I will always be the perfect size to keep your lap nice and warm during our snuggle sessions! I have a stunning ... (Read More)reddish-brown coat and a smile that goes on for days and days; I even smile when I sleep! My human friends saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where I was brought with a broken arm. My foster mommy graciously welcomed me into her home and helped me recover from my injury. I am all healed up, and as much as I love my foster home, I am ready for my happily ever after now! I have so much fun with my foster family, and hope for a forever family that is as fun-loving as they are! I would love to have a forever home with a fenced yard and human who will buy me lots of fun toys and treats because toys and marrow bones are my favorite possessions in the whole wide world! I make foster mommy laugh because I like to take my tasty marrow bone with me when I go outside to go potty and will hold it in my mouth while I 'do my business.' I also have two canine foster sisters who are big Labs and I love to play with them: I am so happy to see them that I do this adorable pouncy dance and hop to where they are so I can jump on them and we can play! When playtime is over, nothing - and I mean NOTHING - makes me happier than cuddling with my humans as much as possible. You name the place, I will be there to join you: Wanna cuddle in bed? I'm there! How 'bout some couch time so we can watch Netflix and chill? I am so game! I just love to curl up with my people everywhere and anywhere so I can give you a sweet kiss and snuggle in as close as possible. So if you are looking for a happy, fun dog who likes to lounge as much as he likes to play, I am the total package! For a young guy, I have great manners, too. I don't mean to brag, but I am already potty trained and crate trained, too. My foster mommy works during the day, and I am fine resting on my own while she is off making money to buy me more treats. She comes home to see me at lunch and take me out for a potty break because, let's be honest, who wouldn't want any excuse to come home and hang out with handsome me for a bit? I am a very smart boy and would love to see how much more I could learn. Maybe we could take a training class or two together? I hear my doggie friends say how much fun training is and what a great bonding experience it is for a new dog and their human. Plus I want to learn as many tricks and commands as I can so I can be the best Little Chief possible! What are you waiting for? If I sound like I could be the perfect companion for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon and tell them you are ready for fun with Little Chief! I can't wait to see what adventures life has planned for us together! Kisses and cuddles, Little Chief If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

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

    She is very scared and timid. Will avoid the leash but did not snap, growl or show teeth while getting it on her. Once looped she will come out. If you want her to have be able to run a bit in the yard, I'd suggest tying a second lead to the handle of the first. She is very confused. Go slow with her and give her space. She will eventually come for a moment of attention before running away again. Was not interested in treats or toys. Is not ready to answer to commands yet. Met Diesel at the fence and both wanted to play. Then he barked and she ran back away from the fence. But did come forward again to sniff and play now him again.

    If your idea of relaxation is staring out at the ocean with a cool drink in your hand, our resident Kaia might be the one for you! Kaia means 'sea' in Hawaiian, and we think this girl as the same tranquility-inducing properties! She's a one year old itty bitty pittie mix who definitely has some small breed terrier in her. She's only 32 pounds, and her temperament are very terrier-like. She has a unique dilute brindle coat and the biggest, saddest, sweetest eyes around. Kaia came to ACL from a local animal control where she had been surrendered when the owners lost their home. Kaia is a high intensity lady - she has a lot of love to give, a ... (Read More)lot of places to be, a lot of stuff to do. She's just a lot! Because Kaia is an emotional, highly intuitive dog, she can also be anxious about new situations and new people. Her reaction to anxiety is to try to take control, and it's really important for her mental health that she has a highly experienced terrier owner who can set the boundaries and give her some consistent structure. When Kaia knows the rules, she is much happier and less nervous. Emotional pups like Kaia are so eager to love you - if you're her leader, she's happy to be your good little soldier! Because of her intensity, Kaia is a good fit for active adult families only. She does ok with dogs on a case by case basis. No cats please! (Less)

Even though he's twelve, he's still pretty high energy and needs to be taken for walks. Something we unfortunately don't have time for anymore. Aside from walks, he loves to snuggle and sunbath, something my two year old won't let him do in peace. We are looking for a home that can give him the attention he needs and deserves because he really is a sweet dog.

American Eskimo Dog Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Handsome, charming Isaac is a stealth operator - he'll steal your heart without you noticing! He's a 7 year old American Eskimo/terrier supermutt who arrived at ACL as a stray. He was very worried and unsure when he first arrived, and he didn't want to make friends. We knew it was an act, though, and soon found that he's a loyal, loving, tolerant dog who adores being with his people. He takes a little bit of patience to warm up to new people, but when you're in with Isaac, you're IN! His trust once earned is a permanent gift. Isaac isn't comfortable with other dogs, so he'd prefer to be a solo pet. He's a persnickety little terrier, so he'd ... (Read More)do best with adopters 16 and up. Isaac's dream is to be the loyal companion to a quiet home who just wants a dog to go for short walks, have lots of pet time, and share their lives with. If Isaac could be the missing piece you've been looking for, please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org to schedule a meet! (Less)
