Name Age Breed Sex Status
Aubrey 1Y 6M Pointer / American Pit Bull Terrier mix Female Available

Hi! I'm Aubrey and I like to run and play and cuddle. What can I say, I've got it all, the whole shebang! I get very excited when it's time to play, I am still young after all. Speaking of being young, I could definitely benefit from obedience training (I've heard treats are involved!) and with your help I think I could be the most well-mannered dog around. I get along well with most other dogs and could possibly live with a dog-savvy cat. Children in my new home should be at least 12 years old because of how excited I can get. What are you waiting for? Come say hi soon!

Betsy 2Y 1M Beagle Female Adopted!

I'm a friendly and outgoing girl and I'm waiting patiently for my forever family to come find me.  I like going for walks, which is good because the vet says I could use to lose a little weight.  I say there's just more of me to love!  I might be ok living with another dog and could possibly live with a cat as well.  Children in my new home can be almost any age and I would do best if my home did not have any shared walls, like an apartment or condo.

Blossom 5Y 1M 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 2M 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 me 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!

Dandelion 7Y 7M German Shepherd Dog Female Available

Who doesn't get a smile on their face when they think of dandelions?  If you didn't before, you sure will after meeting me!  I love to be around people, in fact, it would be best if in my new home someone was almost always there.  I'm not a huge fan of toys and would much prefer just to cuddle up in someone's lap.  I need to be the only pet in the home, that way all the attention can be on me!  Children in my new home should be at least 8 years old and need to have experience with dogs.   Don't hesitate to come meet me!

Duffy 2Y 5M Retriever Mix Male Available

Hi there!  Duffy here to tell you a bit about myself.  I enjoy playing with toys, going for walks, riding in cars, 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.*

Max 0Y 5M Spaniel Mix Male Available

Max, Maximus, Maximilian, I have multiple names and will happily answer to any of them!  I am 100% puppy 100% of the time!  I'm a bit of a class clown, I'm goofy and silly and like to make people laugh.  Don't let my cuteness fool you though, I am very smart and will need a lot of training and mental stimulation to keep me and my new owners happy.  I might enjoy having another dog in the home but I've been told I have too much energy for a cat.  Children in my new home should be in their teens since I am still learning my manners.  If you're looking for a dog that enjoys training, then look no further, here I am!

Maxine 11Y 7M 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!

Molly 8Y 0M Shih Tzu / Beagle Mix Female Available

If a calm, mature dog is what you're looking for, than stop searching because you found me!  I can be shy when first meeting new people, once I know you I'd be perfectly happy sitting next to you all day.  While I'm not a huge fan of toys, my previous owners said that I do enjoy the occasional tennis ball and tug toy.  I might be ok living with another dog, and could possibly live with a cat as well.  Children in my new home should be at least 8 years old and it would be best if they had experience with dogs.  Stop by soon and say hi!

Sweetie Pie 1Y 1M Boxer mix Female Available

Who wants to play?  I absolutely LOVE toys!  Especially if they squeak, those are my favorite.  How about we go for a walk, or better yet a run!  As you can tell, I'm a girl full of energy and will need a family dedicated to getting me the proper exercise.  I'm very athletic and will do best in a home that's just as lively as I am.  I could probably live with another dog if they can tolerate my energy level, but no cats!  Why don't you come on in and meet me and I'll show you just how sweet I am!

Wendy 1Y 0M 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).  ;)

Zia 1Y 3M Retriever / Hound mix Female Available

Hi, my name is Zia and I absolutely, positively love to play!  I like squeaky toys, tug toys, playing fetch, going for walks or runs, I think you get the idea.  My new family will need to be dedicated to getting me the exercise and stimulation that I need.  After playtime is over, I do enjoy cuddling up next to my human and maybe taking a nice nap by the fire.  I can be picky about my dog friends, but if the right one comes along I would enjoy having someone to play with.  However I cannot live with cats.  Because of my energy level children need to have experience with dogs and it would be best if they were at least 8 years old.  So what are you waiting for, stop by soon so we can play!
