Name Age Breed Sex Status
Anne 1Y 1M Pointer Mix Female Available

I'm a shy, sensitive girl hoping to find my forever home soon.  I'm nervous around new people and in new situations, so my family will have to be very patient with me.  I will need a lot of positive social experiences in order for me to be the best dog I can be.  I get along with most other dogs and would probably enjoy having another dog in the home to show me the ropes.  Since I am nervous, children in my new home should have experience with dogs.

Brody 9Y 1M Hound/Retriever mix Male Available

I'm just wondering why you haven't come in to NAHS to meet me yet!  I'm a sweet, friendly guy with a gentle heart in search of a family that is going to give me all the love I deserve.  Some of my favorite activities include; snuggling, playing (I especially enjoy soft squeaky toys), going for long walks, and getting lots of love and attention.  I really want to be the only pet in the family because I want all the attention for myself.  Because of my calm temperament, I can live with children of almost age.  If I sound like the right fit for you, come in and meet me!

Duffy 3Y 2M Retriever Mix Male Available

Hi there!  Duffy here to tell you a bit about myself.  I enjoy playing with toys, going for walks, and my favorite, sitting on laps.  I'm very silly and get excited quite easily.  With that being said, I would do best in an active home where I would get a lot of exercise.  I like most other dogs and would do well living with another playful dog.  Children in my new home should be at least 12 years old since I can play rough and am still working on my manners. 

Felix 10Y 2M Labrador Retriever Mix Male Available

I have what some people call a sugar face (the graying of my muzzle) and I think it shows just how sweet I am!  Even at my age, I am quite active.  I still enjoy a game of fetch and going for walks, though maybe not as long as I once was able too.  I might enjoy living with another calm dog, but no cats please.  Children in my new home should be older.  If you're looking to add gentle, senior dog into your family, I just might be the one for you!

Hope 1Y 2M American Pit Bull Terrier mix Female Available

I'm a very energetic girl searching for a family to call my own. My ideal home is one that is active and lively, I am definitely not a couch potato. I like playing with all different types of toys including tennis balls and rope toys. I like some other dogs, but I cannot live with cats. I hope I'm the one you're looking for and you come to see me soon!

Jingo 0Y 7M Shepherd mix Male Available

I'm all about having fun! I love running, playing with toys, and just being plain silly. I'm what you would call a "busybody" and will need a lot of physical and mental exercise. I will need obedience training to work on my manners, and I'm eager to learn! I like other dogs, but I tend to get rowdy when I play, and not all other dogs like that. Children in my new home should be at least 12. If you're looking for an active, playful dog to join your family, stop by soon!

Maxine 11Y 3M Jack Russell Terrier Female Available

With the way I look and act you would never guess I'm 11 years old.  I'm very playful and I especially love soft, squeaky toys (though I'm sure you can tell by my picture).   I am nervous around new people, and it takes me a while to get comfortable.  Once I know you though I'm all about the attention.  I do need to be the only pet in the home and children should be older and have experience with dogs.  Stop by the shelter and say hi soon!

Owney 2Y 0M Terrier mix Male Available

I know what you're thinking, Owney is such a unique name.  Well, I'm a very unique dog!  I am named after the first nationwide mascot of the post office who brought good luck to all the deliveries he went on.  Now a little bit about me, I am a very active dog who loves adventure!  I like all different types of toys and can get very excited when it's time to play!  I'm still pretty young and will need to work on my manners, but with the right family I know I'll catch on quick.  I would probably enjoy having another playful dog in the house and I might be ok with a cat.  Stop by and meet me soon, who knows, maybe I'll bring you a bit of luck?

Riley 3Y 2M American Pit Bull Terrier Mix Male Available

Want to play fetch?  It's my favorite game!  I also enjoy running around and playing with my other dog friends.  And once we're done I would love to snuggle up next to you.  I love attention!  I'm still learning my manners so children in my new home should be older.  I would like to have another playful dog in the home, and could maybe even live with a cat.  If you're looking for an energetic dog I just might be the one for you!

Toby 4Y 0M Chihuahua mix Male Available

Hey there, I'm Toby and I'm here to tell you a bit about myself.  I can be shy when first meeting new people, but I warm up pretty quickly.  I like playing with plush and squeaky toys as well as playing tug.  Children in my new home need to be older and should have experience with dogs.  I need to be the only dog in the home, but I might enjoy having play dates with other dogs.  I also might be OK living with a cat.  If I sound like the one you've been looking for, stop by and ask to see me soon!

Violet 4Y 2M Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix Female Available

I was found stray in Naperville, and was given the name Violet because of my striking blue eyes.  They are one of my many good features if I do say so myself.  I'm a happy, outgoing girl with a lot of love to give.  I really like to be near people -- especially adults -- and would much rather play with you than with a toy.  Children in my new home should be older and have experience with dogs since I am very strong. I need to be the only pet in the house because I'm what they call an attention hog.  LOL!

Willie 9Y 2M Cattle Dog mix Male Adopted!

My life turned upside down when my family moved and could not take me with.  I am nervous to be here and am hoping to find a nice family to spend my golden years with.  I really enjoy going for walks, and can get playful when the mood strikes.  Because of my gentle personality, I can live with children of all ages.  I could possibly live with another calm dog, and maybe even a cat.  If I sound like the dog you've been searching for, stop by soon!
