Meet Amber. My foster mom says she gave me that name because it describes my eyes. Amber was picked up as a stray in Tennessee and ended up in the shelter, now that she is in Illinois she’s looking for a real forever home. Amber is around 18 months old, she’s currently learning basic manners and is doing very well. She is crate trained, walks excellent on a leash and has almost mastered house breaking. She is currently in a foster home with another dog and she loves playing with her, but She absolutely loves to have your attention and will wait patiently until the right time. I find your arrival and dinner time very exciting. I am looking for a home that will play with me, pet me, and cuddle me! Amber will do well with an active family. Are you Ambers Forever Home? If you feel she could be part of your home, please fill out an application on our website.
Hi, my name is Zoey. I'm a black Great Dane mix with white paw tips and a white chest. People say I’m “gorgeous”. I'm one overzealous 1-year old puppy. My original family dropped me off with a family and never returned, unfortunately that family just couldn’t take care of me and now I’m in a foster home with a very nice lady who saved me in hopes of finding me a real “Forever “ Home” I weigh approximately 101 pounds. I often think of myself as a lap dog most of the time. I love to throw my toys in the air and catch them, and actually don’t know my own size. I love to chase balls, play tug of war, chew on my bones and go for walks. . I am crate trained, If you give me a little treat I will get right in the crate for you with no hesitation. I am potty trained and will pace back and forth to let you know I have to go out, however, I do not like the cold whether so I need to be nudged out the door. I am not a big barker but if I feel the need I will let you know someone is here. I love going on car rides they're my favorite, I look around and I'm very happy. I have been around 3 cats and other dogs. I love to play with them all (the cats are afraid of my size I wonder why), we run all over and I do like to nudge all animals with my big nose. I have no clue what children are I have never been around them so I'm not quite sure how I would act but with the right training I'm sure I would love them just as much as I love everything else. All in all I am a very good puppy. I have no clue how big I am but I love to play and play and play.
Zoey will need a an experienced dog owner and a fenced in yard is a plus. She really is a big girl full of love that just needs that in return.
My name is Libby. I came from a shelter in Tennessee where they said I “tested positive for light heart worm”. I have now finished the treatment and am ready to find my Forever Home. I weigh 68 lbs and I am a 5 year old Bloodhound/Sharpei mix.(best guess) I am housebroken but need a little help with learning commands like “sit” and “stay”. I walk well on a leash—I like to walk at the pace of my foster mom. People immediately notice my unique looks and often comment about my cute and squishy face. I really enjoy meeting new people of all ages! When people talk to me or about me, I sit nicely and wag my tail to let them know I enjoy all of the attention and petting. I love to play with my foster brother. I was a little shy and submissive when I first met him but after about a week, I felt confident enough to play with him. (He’s a Great Dane) My foster parents gave me my first set of toys EVER on my first day with them! I didn’t really know what they were at first, but quickly realized that toys are fun andI learned to play tug with my foster brother. I like to follow my foster parents around the house from room to room. They have lots of spots to rest and I have a dog bed where I can enjoy seeing and hearing them. Cuddling with my foster parents and/or my foster brother is the best but when I am ready for a nap, I prefer a spot on the floor alone so that I can spread out a bit. When someone calls my name, I am quick to respond and happy to follow! My foster parents laugh because they say my “happy tail” lets them know how much I love life. The littlest things make me happy like rolling around in the snow, car rides and food! I would love another dog to play with but I am also content to be your only dog. My foster parents have chickens and ducks and I do well with them—they are fun to watch and observe. If you love droopy and squishy faces like mine and want a companion to help make you just as happy as I am, I am your girl!
