Alf 1Y 6M Shih Tzu mix Male Available

I'm a dog who is always on the go and looking for my next great adventure.  I'll need an active family who will help me get all my energy out.  I've heard obedience training is a fun way to do that and I think I'll be really good at it since I love treats so much!  I get along with most other dogs and would enjoy having another playful dog in my new home.  However I cannot live with cats, I've been told I'm too exuberant.  So what do you say, want to go on an adventure with me?

Blossom 5Y 0M Mastiff / American Pit Bull Terrier Mix Female Available

Hi there! I'm Blossom and I can't wait to meet you! I absolutely love being around people and will gladly sit right next to you all day long. In fact, I'll happily nudge you to remind you that I'm there and that you need to be petting me. I like humans more than other animals, so I need to be the only pet in the home. But that's ok because I'm so great you won't need anyone but me! I am quite strong so children should be in their teens and have experience with dogs. If a sweet, friendly girl is what you're looking for don't hesitate to come say hi!

Blue 1Y 0M American Pit Bull Terrier Mix Male Available

If you're a person who enjoys playing, training, and snuggling, you may have just met your match!  I love playing fetch, especially if the toy squeaks, that's my favorite.  I will need a lot of mental stimulation too, so things like obedience training and 'find it' games will keep my busy.  Because of my strength and the fact that I'm still learning my manners, children in my new home should be in their teens.  I cannot live with cats, but I might be OK with another dog that compliments my play style.  If you're looking for a high energy dog that loves to cuddle, I just might be the one for you!

Carrie 1Y 1M 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 very patient with me and continue to build my confidence.  Because of this, children in my new home should have be older and have experience with dogs.  I like most other dogs but cannot live with cats.

Duffy 2Y 4M 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. 

*Duffy is in a foster home and can be seen by appointment only.  If you would like to meet him, please call the shelter at 630-420-8989 ext. 0.*

Latte 10Y 0M Chihuahua Male Available

I was found running stray in Naperville, scared, cold, and alone.  When no one claimed me at animal control, I came here and now I hope to find my forever home.  I am very nervous in new situations (I'm sure you can see why) so it would be best if my new owners had experience with my breed.  Also, children in my new home should be in their upper teens.  I might be ok with another small dog in the home and maybe even a cat.  If you're looking for an older dog to complete your family, I just might be the one for you!

Maxine 11Y 6M 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!

Wendy 0Y 11M Basset Hound Mix Female Available

I have an opinion on everything, and I'm not afraid to share it. I'm a very active girl and some might even call me athletic. I like to jump and twist in the air... I'm quite the show off.  Agility classes might be really fun for me because I have so much energy, and I need to find different ways to exercise. I'm generally outgoing, but sometimes I can be shy around new people so my new family will need to be mindful of how I'm feeling in new situations. I might enjoy another playful dog in my new home, but I cannot live with cats; feline friends are way too tempting to chase. I also think I'd be fine with children as young as 5 years old as long as they understand how to behave around busy dogs. Oh, did I mention that I like to talk a lot? That means that I shouldn't live in an apartment, condo, or townhouse (any dwellings with shared walls).  ;)
