Animal ID: 2857Jake (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Jake. He's thrilled to meet you. Jake has an exuberant, people and dog-loving personality. We're not sure about cats yet. He does want to please and is learning how a little more everyday. Jake is considered predominately a Blue Heeler, which is also known as an Australian Cattle Dog, and part Lab. As you can see, his coat is shiny black over a very handsome 'blue' speckling. The end of his tail is tipped white as if dipped in paint. His coat is silky smooth and needs minimal care. Brushing once or twice a week should be sufficient to keep shedding to a minimum. With the type of coat he has, he always looks good. At about 40 ... (Read More)pounds, he sports a lean, muscular physique. His vaccinations are up to date, and he has been neutered and microchipped. Jake is a dog with a lot of energy to spare. His age is estimated at one year or older so there is still a lot of puppy energy in there. He has been quite busy in his foster home with the family dog, a Shepherd/Boxer mix named Chessie. He and Chessie spend much time playing in the house and outside. The rest of the time they're recuperating from all the fun. She has been showing him the ropes and helping him with his doggy manners. Jake is learning to sit, stay, 'free', ('ok' to do whatever it is you're about to let him do), 'lounge', (lay down), shake, and above all - patience. He walks quite well on a leash. His foster home provided him with a special harness that doesn't hurt and guides him well. He would do well in a home where he has lots of opportunities for exercise to burn off some of that young dog energy. While he tends to be submissive, all dogs will try to be in charge given the chance. Jake is no exception. A consistent and patient forever home is just what he needs to be a loving and treasured family member. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults

    Sweet Debby! Your typical Lab puppy! Full of fun and looking for her BFF 4-Ever. Named after a Beautiful Lady with the same name, she is shiny, soft, and also a Beauty. Debby is 6 mos. born 06-04-2014, weighs 29#s and should be approximately 50 #'s as an adult. She is great with the dogs and cats in her foster home, and loves to run and play with them.

(Read More)She will chew her toys and is learning what is hers and what is not. Debby is kennel trained, but only in one at night and if her family leaves the house. Debby would love a Fur-Ever home for Christmas, or to Ring in the New Year! (Less)

Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Wendy. Part of a litter of 7. We were found in the woods. Many people worked hard to get us to rescue. I am a typical 6 week old puppy, I love to run, play, eat and sleep. I cannot go home until I'm 8 weeks old. New things still scare me at first but I warm up really fast. I'd love another dog to play with, but if not that's ok I will love my people. I need a home that is home most of the day as I need to go out a lot until I'm bigger. If your not ready for my puppy stage please do not take me home. I will chew, have accidents, cry until I learn how to be a great dog. Of your ready for that please give me my new home.

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Opie was adopted from our shelter as a 12 week old puppy. He was recently returned as the family is now having a baby and have no time for Opie. Opie is now about 2 years old. Opie is a high energy boy that would benefit from some obedience training. He is okay with most dogs but does bark at them and plays hard. If other dogs are in the home a meet and greet is required. Opie has lots to offer to a family and deserves a second chance. An experienced dog handler would be best for Opie. He does jump up some so best with older children.

    zzy' is a social, energetic, beautiful puppy, who loves to play and be loved on. She is good with the other dogs that like to play hard and then crash and rest. She is ok with the cats in her foster home, but would be best without them as she is a bit too inquisitive towards them. She is 6 mos. of age, born 06-06-2014, and weighs 35 to 38 #'s. She is doing great with house training, as long as you let her out often. A basic companion dog class is highly recommended, as Izzy is an intelligent and eager to earn girl. She will be your BFF at class and also learn what is expected of her. Izzy would be an awesome agility dog and this would keep ... (Read More)her mentally and physically stimulated. HELP will also reimburse $50.00 of your class fee if you complete a class within 4 mos. of adoption. A fenced in yard to run and play in, plus a family where someone is home more than not is best for Izzy. Since she has a bit of herding breed in her children over 5 is requested. Izzy is crate trained, sleeps all night quietly in her foster mom's room, and is really a sweet loving girl. She is gentle with people, and likes everyone she has met. Walks are a favorite of hers, and she is enjoying the experience of seeing new things. Izzy has learned sit, come, 'no', and drop already, and is working on responding quicker too. After all, she is still a puppy! She would love a family that loves her and will give her a 4-Ever home this Christmas season! Woof! (Less)

    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.

    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.

    Captain came to us as an abandoned dog from Hardeman County Tennessee. He is an incredibly loving pup that wants to 'hug' you and be given attention. The only training issue that has been discovered is that he is a bit of a 'chewer'. His FUR-ever family will need to keep a supply of chew toys to direct this behavior. He is potty trained, super sweet and does not have an aggressive bone in his body! He loves other dogs and kids. We are not sure if he has ever experienced living inside a home because he is unsure of those scary vacuums etc.! He displays this as a bit nervous but shows absolutely no aggression. He will wrap his paws around you ... (Read More)and give you a hug and cuddle. We do not know how such a sweet and loving boy became homeless, but we do know that he will be a joy to his FUR-ever family! 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. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Sadie has been our family pet for 6 years. We are sad to see her go. She is a great guard dog, very loyal, very funloving, plays fetch, jumps to catch her ball, obeys several commands (sit, come, stay, speak, hush, go to bed, back, shake, down). She does not need to be crated, but is crate-trained. She is friendly with our family, but is very nervous around visitors. We moved in September and this has gotten worse. Recently, she bit a visitor in the hand. The person went to the doctor as a precaution, but needed no stiches and the bite was not bad enough to be reported. We have a one year old and cannot risk her being near him. She ... (Read More)has never shown aggression towards him, but there were several times in the past when she nipped our older daughter. Sadie is very trainable, but has many fears and needs to go to someone who can work with her to build her confidence. We took her to a behaviorist who believes she can become a fantastic dog with training and confidence. Please consider taking her if you can give her the time to train her well. We wish we could take the time to train her out of her fears, but with a little one, we just don't have the time and feel it is in the best interest of our son's safety to let her go. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Alice! I am a 2 year old gorgeous 35 pound mixed breed dog available for adoption. I was rescued 9 weeks ago very pregnant. I gave birth to 8 wonderful pups and they have all found forever homes. Now it's my turn. :) I love every human I meet and LOVE getting attention. I tolerate my foster brother who is a Min Pin, but I am a jealous dog and want my humans all to my myself, so I need to be an only dog. And since I tend to jump when excited, a home with bigger kids would be best. I met two cats and didn't mind them at all, although I do have a very strong prey drive for squirrels! I know sit and will sit perfectly for ... (Read More)my dinner and for treats. I'm a smartie and would love to learn more commands and tricks. I am also 100% house trained and 100% crate trained and sleep in my crate all night without a peep (my crate comes with me). I like to lounge around the house most of the day, but when I go outside I have lots of energy to burn so a nice big fenced in backyard is a must. My adoption fee is only $100 and that includes my Bordetella, Rabies, Dhlpp, Deworming, Microchip and Spay. If you think I would be a good fit in your home, please email ryankolodziej@gmail.com for an application. (Less)

    Sam is a handsome, playful, friendly and loving three-year-old, 58-pound, male pit bull terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. 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! Sam knows the command sit and takes treats very gently from your fingers. He's playful and happy to entertain himself with Kongs and Nylabones. 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. He loves his people and enjoys being near them. This poor boy ... (Read More)was found as a stray in Gary, Indiana. He weighed only 38 pounds! Now after gaining 20 pounds and TLC, he's looking so happy and healthy. Sam is healthy, de-wormed, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, and heartworm-tested.

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chipper looks to be a Weim lab mix? He is a big dog, a beautiful chocolate silver color. I don't know how he ended up in a shelter. He is SUPER sweet, crate trained, walks on a leash and is just a wonderful easy boy. Traveled great on the 12 hour ride home from the shelter. Perfect with the other dogs and puppies. He loves to play! I seen his photo and couldn't leave him there to be killed even though we weren't sure how we would fit him in the mini van with all the others we were getting and as large as he is. As it was he fit just fine. He is very well behaved when crated. Since we had the mini van we figured we might as well save as many ... (Read More)as we could so we got 13 dogs out of nasty shelters. Chipper will be neutered and is now UTD on vaccinations before he is available. We can hold him with a deposit for the right family until he has been neutered when he will be available. A current or past Vet number, and a contract is required to adopt. If your seriously interested in Chipper please send vet information in first email to us. (Less)

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)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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)

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.
