    She is between 9-10 years old. She is totally trained, not a big barker, is excellent with people and kids. The only issue is that she does not get along well with other dogs, so she really needs a place that they don't already have dogs. I lost my job and am being forced to move and cannot take her. I really need her to go to a loving home. She is a total lover. She loves to give kisses and playing in the yard.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Liz - 1-2Year Old Sweet Girl! Picture doesn't do her justice, absolutely beautiful in person. Soft med length coat with a beautiful long fur on her tail. Here is what her foster family has to say about Liz: Liz has been with us since the last week of October. She is an amazing dog that has had rough start to life. She has learned that people can be good and has learned to trust. She didn't even bark until she found her voice in mid November. She has been with us through the holidays and has met many strangers to her and did very well. Everyone loved her and said what a great dog she is. Kennel - She is absolutely wonderful with ... (Read More)her kennel. She will go right in when told to kennel. We reward her with a treat. She goes in her kennel when she takes a nap and we leave the door open so she can go in and out as she wants during the day. We have let her roam the house with the other dogs when we have gone to the store for less than 1/2 an hour, but have not let her roam the house on her own for extended periods yet. Training - Liz is very trainable and loves treats as a reward. She is house broken and will stare out the door when she has to go. She walks well on a short leash by your side. I have not had her off leash since she arrived. We live next to a corn field with lots of critters and I know her hunting instincts could kick in and I wouldn't want her lost. She has chases the birds in our yard and is quite determined about the squirrels. Since living in a house and trusting people is new to her, she is working on her manners. She might jump on people when she is excited. We also keep her stocked with lots of chew toys to keep her out of mischief. She buried every bone we gave her either in the yard, my couch or under the pillows on the bed in the spare bedroom so we give her a Kong filled with peanut butter, dog food, or cheese and she LOVES it! She will spend hours working on it. When she came to us she was absolutely fearful of the car. I have been taking her on short trips to the park and rewarding her with treats. We have moved to longer trips and she is doing WONDERFUL!!!! If given the chance she would love to sleep in your bed but will sleep in her kennel just fine. Liz will do well in a home with other active dogs. She likes to play and rough house with her canine friends so she will do well as an only dog or with others. The family that adopts Liz will be very lucky to have such a loving girl!

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Moose is such a sweetheart! Not sure of the mix, my bet is on Lab & Great Dane or brown Doberman - his feet are big and he's growing into them. He gets along great with other dogs and is good with kids. He waits patiently for his food and learns fast. He is 99% potty trained and knows how to 'sit'. Moose also recently learned how to catch treats. He loves wrestling with his foster brother & sister and playing tug. He also loves cuddling on the couch curled up next to his people. Best in a home without cats, but is great with other dogs.

    Clint came into rescue with his brother and sister (sister has been adopted). We are trying to adopt the brothers out separately as they tend to pick on each other. Clint is the more dominant of the two but Buster, the submissive one, tends to start most of the scruffles. Clint would do fine as the only dog in a home. They are from a home that had too many dogs so they are used to being around other dogs and also other children.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Max. He may be the most silly and affectionate dog that we've ever met. He's a petite little guy. He weighs 50 lbs. and is around 2-3 years old. If you're a gardener, you can be sure that your yard will never be infested with feral cats, squirrels or rabbits. He loves to play in the mud...but never fear, he's figured out how to jump into the tub on his own free will to have his feet and muzzle cleaned. If you have kids...he will easily fit in. He's a great disciplinarian. He will teach your kids to pick up after themselves quickly if they cherish their balls, legos, socks and underwear. No mouthiness from this one...just too many ... (Read More)slobbery kisses. He loves to sleep in and insists on spooning you in bed. He's mastered the art of playing dead and will not budge from his spot until you physically move him. He is quite the charmer and fancies himself a lap dog. Just like a baby, he will wrap his arms around your neck and schnooze on your shoulder. Max also loves to go running with his person and will keep up with speed and match strides for slow down periods. He does very well meeting strangers. He has no anxiety, noise or separation issues. He's very low maintenance. He's house broken, neutered, HW negative and up to date on vaccinations and preventatives. He must be crated for his safety when left at home. He can not be in a home with cats or small rodents. He has an extremely high prey drive and the ability to jump over low gates and fences. Unless his forever home is in a condo setting where he will be walked daily, he will require a home that has a 6ft high privacy fence and he can never be left outside unattended. We have discovered that he will resource guard bricks and rocks. Although he can be easily distracted from these items through positive reinforcement, he will require a dog savvy person who is willing and able to work with this behavior. He can not have any bones. Max is located in Chicago. We ask that inquiries be within 30 miles of Chicago. Please remember we can not adopt out of state because a home visit is a requirement.We require an at home evaluation and screening prior to adoption. We do this to ensure that our animals will go to safe forever homes. If you are interested in providing Max a forever home, please fill out our adoption survey here http://makingadifferencerescue.com/adoption-survey/ This will expedite your inquiry as we are not able to return phone calls or emails during business hours.

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    DOB 2/14/13 Piper was a stray in rural Missouri, a place where dogs are commonly left behind when the owners move or can no longer afford their care. Many of these pups don't make it, but Piper was lucky enough to be found by a compassionate soul that arranged for her to join our rescue. Our best guess is that she is a lab/husky/shepherd mix, but we are sure there are several other beeds that contribute to her stunning looks and amazing intelligence. Piper is about 18 months old and is very smart! She is potty trained, crate trained, walks great on a leash, knows all basic commands, and rides well in a car. She loves to play with other ... (Read More)dogs, go on long walks and run around in the backyard. Piper can also be silly and makes her fosters laugh at how goofy and cute she is. If you are looking for a pup that is well rounded and lively, Piper would like to meet you! Piper does not have very small children in her foster home. She does still have the energy of a puppy and wants to play with everyone. Small children may occasionally be overwhelmed with her size and energy level. We have also discovered that Piper does not appreciate the curiosity of cats! Piper is a wonderful, sweet dog that is looking for a HOME to call her very OWN! Standard adoption fee is $295 and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email Kathy for an application at safehavendogs@yahoo.com. (Less)

One of which was thought to be his mother was found shot and dead in the house, another dog had been shot outside and was laying there dead. Eddie kept returning to lay next to the dead dog in the house and was very frightened. The neighbor was threatening to shoot the 3 remaining dogs if they were not gone. A rescue stepped up for the 2 female dogs leaving Eddie all by himself with the dead dogs. We offered to take Eddie when no one else would. He was caught by a great rescuer who is the one who let everyone know of the dogs plight. Put in boarding ...

He has a great personality, gets along well with a large variety of dogs, and is low energy. We haven't had him around any children so not sure on children. He is shy around strangers unless they take the time to let him warm up. He didnt know how to walk on a leash and is still a bit unsure about it but it is amazing how fast he learns and wants to please for attention. He is fully vetted, heart worm positive and on slow kill heart worm treatment. About 60 pounds and 2 to 3 years old. We required a vet clinic phone number you use currently, or if no current pets your last vets number to call for a reference prior to adopting. (Less)

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Maggie is a big sweet lab mastiff mix. My daughter returned home to attend the local collage and brought her 2 puppies with. They do not get along with Maggie and I have to keep them separated. Because Maggie was the last one adopted I feel she should be the one I have to let go. We love Maggie but feel she would be happier in a single pet household where she has room to run.

Sam is living in a foster home where he's great with all the other dogs. He is full of tail wags and kisses for all the people he meets too!

He is housebroken, crate-trained and is even good when given a bath. Sam loves his walks, runs, and is good on leash. He also loves to snuggle with his foster mom.

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-11-00261Thunder (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    Thunder is a mellow and sweet, six-year-old, 60-pound, male, glossy black and white Lab/Pit-mix looking for a loving guardian. Thunder was rescued from the pound in Gary, Indiana. He had a bump on his head, and an injury to one of his rear legs. It's guessed that he had been hit by a car. Thunder can't see that well; he has 15% vision in one eye and 6% vision in the other. Since he's almost blind, it's not surprising that he is easily startled by someone sneaking up on him. But amazingly, he still loves to play fetch. He will listen for the ball to bounce and go in that direction. He's also quite the lap dog and loves to cuddle. Thunder ... (Read More)is living in a foster home where he has proven great with dogs of all sizes as well as cats. He is not crazy about overly playful dogs. But, he is great with a dominant male German Shepherd that typically does not like other males, but he accepts Thunder into his pack. Because of his vision problems, Thunder sometimes bumps into other dogs or lands on them if he jumps down off of a bed or couch. Most dogs are understanding of his clumsiness, but some dogs may not be. He is great with people of all ages including children, however toys on the floor are confusing to him as he memorizes his environment so he can get around. When he goes to a new foster home, he immediately tries to figure out the path to the door and has been housebroken wherever he goes when taken out regularly. He is also crate-trained. He is great on leash, at the vet and in the car. He is full of tail wags and kisses for the people he loves. He knows the command sit and does so automatically when he smells a treat or hears the crinkle of a treat bag. He is food-motivated and takes treats gently from your fingers. He's looking for a quiet home where someone can keep him on a solid routine. Thunder is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on preventative. And, even though the rescue group spent over $3,000 on his vet care '| his adoption fee is only $200. To meet and possibly adopt him, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net or 708-224-1900. He is currently living in a foster home in Round Lake, Illinois. (Less)

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you an athletic person who loves a nice solid outgoing dog? Tide is a very handsome boy, weighs about 70 pounds, about 1 year old, heartworm negative and current on all shots and health care. He is a very solid, fun loving, energetic dog who can wear out any dog here playing, except a pit mix we had who is also higher energy. At the same time when crated he is perfectly well behaved, quiet and calm. He loves to sniff about and seems to have potential for a search and rescue dog or something to use his skills to advantage. Plus he is a very confident dog and loves to hop in the car, or go anywhere you want to go which would be perfect for ... (Read More)a working dog. He is crate trained, never potties in the crate or kennel. He was rescued from a very high kill shelter in AL, where many dogs never make it out. I seen his face and just didnt want him cut short when hes still a pup with SO much potential! He will need exercise to be a good dog, either playing with another dog (med or large he loves to rough house with them!) or jogging, agility, tagging along a bike. This dog is athletic and needs an active family, no couch potatoe here (although after play time I am sure he would love couch time!!) He knows sit and he loves attention. His favorite thing other then playing is to flop over on his back so you can rub his belly! He wants to meet anyone who has visited and so many people have been very impressed with how handsome he is, but they were wanting a small dog. I havent worked with him much at all but he does learn fast! Please email for more photos he is solid built and acts very much like a lab! Contract and vet reference required to adopt. A friend has sponsored half of his adoption fee of $200. to help him find a great forever home! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Lab in Illinois
    Lab Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Labrador Retrievers are friendly dogs that are popular in multiple countries as family pets. Labs are friendly, playful, trainable dogs. Labrador Retrievers need companionship and are excellent with children and other dogs. Most labs are too friendly to make good guard dogs. Labs can adapt to apartment life with sufficient daily exercise but do best with a decent sized yard.

lnteresting Lab Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Labs have very gentle mouths and can even carry an egg without it breaking. One rescue lab named Jake helped dig through burning debris at Ground Zero to find people trapped after 9/11, and later helped with rescue efforts after Hurricane Katrina. The Labrador Retriever is by far the most popular dog in the U.S.
