Bobo 0Y 7M Retriever / Shepherd Mix Male Adopted!

Hi there!  My name is Bobo and I am a bouncing ball of energy!  Want to play fetch?  Go for a long walk?  Maybe a run?  Anything to help me get my energy out sounds fun to me!  As long as my new family is as active as I am, we will get along great.  I like most other dogs but cannot live with cats.  Because of my activity level, children in my new home should be at least 8 years old.  If you're looking for an active dog then don't hesitate to stop by!

Bugsy 1Y 6M Hound/Retriever mix Male Available

I am a super playful and excitable young boy. I really enjoy toys, taking long walks, going for runs, and playing with other dogs. I have a lot of energy to burn, and I need a family to help me do just that. I do know some basic commands, but I've heard other dogs talk about going to obedience training classes, and I think I'd like to do that. It's fun to show off and let others know how smart I am. I can be rowdy and play a little rough sometimes, so I think children in my new home should be at least 12 years old. I like most other dogs, and I might be able to live with a cat, too. One more thing... I don't like to be left alone for long periods of time. If I sound like I might be the dog for you, don't waste any more time -- Visit soon!

Cameron 0Y 6M Rat Terrier Mix Male Available

Curious and energetic puppy here!  And you know what that means, I'll need a lot of training.  I am also very dependent on people, and don't like to be left alone for too long.  My new family needs to be dedicated to getting me the proper socialization that I need.  I like most other dogs, and might like having a playmate in my new home, but no cats please!  Children should have experience with dogs too.  Don't hesitate to come see me!

Carrie 0Y 9M Australian Shepherd Mix Female Available

I traveled a long way from Oklahoma and am still a little nervous to be here.  Everyone has been very nice to me since I've arrived and I am starting to get more comfortable and confident in myself.  I will need a family that will be patient with me and continue to build my confidence.  Because of this, children in my new home should have experience with dogs.  I like most other dogs but cannot live with cats.

Duke 0Y 5M Bloodhound Male Available

As you can probably tell from my picture, I am a very big puppy.  And at 5 months, I still have a lot of growing to do.  I have some obedience training but will definitely need to continue it.  I love treats and am quite smart if I say so myself so training should be fun.  True to my breed, I like to sniff anything and everything, my nose is always on the ground.  My new owners will have to have experience with my breed and be dedicated to giving me the proper amount of exercise.  I might be able to live with another dog, but no cats please!

Layla 1Y 4M Hound/Retriever mix Female Available in foster home

What a dog like me needs is patience, time, and a lot of love.  I traveled here in hopes of finding my forever home, but the shelter environment was very stressful for me.  Lucky for me, someone was nice enough to bring me into their home and foster me so I can grow and learn in a calm environment.  My foster mom says that I am a sweet and loving dog, and that I am becoming more comfortable each day.  Although I am trying very hard, I am still an extremely shy dog and my new owners will need to be dedicated to helping me get the proper socialization I need.  Because I am very nervous, children in my home should be at least 16 years or older.  Having another calm, but playful dog in my new home might be good for me and might help me come out of my shell...after all, I'm enjoying playing with my two new doggie friends in my foster home!  Would you like to give me a chance?

*Layla is in a foster home.  If you are interested in meeting her, please call the shelter at 630-420-8989*

Luigi 3Y 0M Pug mix Male Adopted!

I'm a playful and friendly guy in search of a family to call my own.  I was found stray in Chicago, and while I enjoy being outside, I would much prefer living indoors and snuggling up in a big, soft bed.  I get along with most other dogs and might be able to live with a dog-savvy cat.  Don't wait to stop by and meet me!

Mabel 1Y 7M Pointer / Retriever Mix Female Available

My name is Mabel and I am a very outgoing girl.  I love to cuddle and be near people.  I can be very curious and train well with treats.  Going for long walks and playing fetch are also among some of my favorite things.  I get along with some other dogs and might be OK with a dog savvy cat.  Children in my house should be older and have experience with dogs since I am still learning to share my toys and food.

Ruthie 5Y 0M Rat Terrier Mix Female Available

I haven't had the easiest life so far, but I'm looking forward to a fresh start with my new family.  I like being around and meeting new people, especially if they take me for walks.  Even at my age, I could still benefit from obedience training and I think I would do really well.  I would prefer to be the only pet in your life and I have a big enough personality that I'll be all you need.  Am I the one for you?  Don't wait to find out!

Violet 4Y 0M 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, and would much rather play with you than with a toy.  Children in my new home should have experience with dogs since I am very strong.  I also might be able to live with other dogs and possibly a cat too.
