Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This is what his GA foster mom has to say about him: I introduced him to my dog, who is currently staying with my mom. They played the entire day and got along great. Within five minutes, they were best friends. He loves greeting other dogs. My mom also has a small yorkie mix, who was scared of Kyrie, due to his size. Kyrie was very friendly though and just wanted to play. I haven't seen him interact with children, except in the waiting room at the shelter, and he was very friendly. He just has a very friendly demeanor. He doesn't jump on you. He is the best listener. You only need to tell him 'No' once, and he won't do it again. He knows ... (Read More)'Sit.' He does need a little more leash training. He pulls and is incredibly strong. I'm sure he would be great with kids because he is so lovable. You can mess with him and play with him. I've never seen him growl or become defensive at all. He has been around a lot of my friends, and he just lets them love on him. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Kyrie. He loves to play fetch with his toys, but he also know when it's time to just lay around and nap. He loves to cuddle, but can also just do his own thing. He rarely barks or whines. He is going to be the perfect dog for a family. (Less)

She is around 43 lbs and is a true southern lady. She knows commands, loves treats and is a true sweetheart. She will be spayed as soon as she's done with her heartworm treatment. Whoever ...

    Meet Jack, a mature guy looking for a home where he can cuddle with his humans and settle in for his golden years. He will instantly become a beloved member of any family lucky enough to adopt him. Jack is an 8 %BD year old, 110 pound, yellow Lab. He was born in October 2006 and spent his first few months training to be a retriever. He then transitioned to be a family dog. He is very obedient and loves to cuddle up next to you and relax. His ideal day would include playing a game of fetch, getting petted on his head and under his neck, and napping-- not necessarily in that order. While Jack is a mellow fellow and loves to snuggle with the ... (Read More)small children in his current family, he can be a bit particular about who he chooses to accept in his circle of human friends. He will do best in a quieter home where he can enjoy a nice peaceful life (and maybe shed a few pounds). https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/32328825 (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rocky has been with our family since he was a year and a half. His original owner got him at 8 weeks old and abandoned him at a year and a half. He is amazing with my 3.5 year old daughter and never aggressive towards anyone in our home. He loves to run around in the yard and chase birds and squirrels. He loves to cuddle as well. His downfall is that loud noises such as fireworks scare him and he needs some basic obedience training on a leash, but none the less he is the biggest sweetheart around. The reason for rehoming is that I am a single mom and with school starting this fall, I am finding it harder and harder to afford an animal and I ...

He is a smart boy, eager to please, and ready continue training. Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, 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 safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details.

    This is a real cutie. He is around 2 years old and weighed in at 18 lbs. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter in TX. As to breed, that is a complete guess. He's on the smaller side, so could be a Chihuahua mix with maybe some kind of terrier, maybe even some lab. All we know is that he is way too cute.

He is crate trained and will sleep thru the night with the occasional trip outside.

He absolutely loves every dog he meets, and is ready to play when around them!! Due to his love of playing with other dogs, we are requiring another playful dog in the family. He also loves everyone ... (Read More)meets and is excellent with our boys his only fault is he is a jumper but we are working on correcting it.

Animal ID: 2895Bella (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Bella is a Black and white lab pointer mix. She is about 5yrs old and 74lbs. She was brought up to her foster home approx. 2nd week of April. She has been in a foster home with 2 doggie sisters and brought everyday to work with her foster mom in a grooming shop. In the beginning she was nervous and I am sure scared to adjust to such a new life. She has been socializing with so many new and different dogs and people. She has been slowly adjusting, but in the last few weeks has been really come into her own. She started to really act like a happy dog, playing with toys, dogs and loves all the puppies. She has also been showing so much ... (Read More)affection to all the women she is around everyday. She has so much to offer to a new owner. I can really see in her that she has a purpose to be apart of someones life who just needs that unconditional love. She is a special dog and has a special soul. She is nervous around men, but I am sure she would come around. To be in a grooming shop everyday would be hard on any dog, but Bella is fine with that. That is amazing to me and She deserves a wonderful life. She would be great in an adult household and she walks great on leash and responds to all commands. She has also started training at her foster home with the underground dog fence.She is wonderful in the car at home and at work. Please come meet Bella, she will be happy to greet you! (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    DOB 3/2/2013 Darling was abandoned at a high kill shelter in Alabama that we work closely with. We were able to get her out of the shelter and into an amazing foster home in Alabama where she is waiting for her trip to Illinois and learning about love. Her Alabama foster told us that she is very sweet with humans... she will lick you to death. She is learning to sit. She is learning to share her people... It's like she is starving for attention and afraid to be abandoned again. She is housebroken and loves everyone...adults and children. Her foster in Illinois, has found that she is extremely sweet! She loves other dogs and does well with ... (Read More)cats too! She is also wonderful with children of all ages. She loves to be with her foster mom and has made her way onto the foot of the bed...that's where she sleeps each night! She has fantastic house manners and is very eager to please. She responds to 'no' and 'down' and learns quickly. She would love to have someone that is home with her because she does not crate well, it makes her very nervous and crating is not an option. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) 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 safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. 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)

Health: Spayed, Abused/Neglected 

    Fun loving, active, approx. 2 year old spayed female. We took her in because her owners could no longer keep her but we cannot keep her as we have 3 dogs already. She gets along well with other dogs and is very social but she doesn't really have manners yet - we have been working on some basic commands. She needs an active home, preferably with a yard where she can run. We are not sure what breed she is but the vet seemed to think she might be mixed with greyhound or whippet, she loves to run and is very fast.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Max is a sweet, snugly and chill, four-year-old, 46-pound, male black and white Pit Bull Terrier/Lab-mix looking for a loving guardian. Max's best friend in his foster home is a nine-year-old boy whose bed he shares each night. He's an amazing and affectionate dog who is full of tail wags and wiggles. He thinks he's a lap dog. Max is well-trained and knows the commands sit, down and paw. Max is perfectly housebroken and crate trained. His foster family crates him when he is not supervised as he still likes to chew on items like socks and underware. He has no anxiety issues; he can deal with fireworks, revving motorcycles, and other loud ... (Read More)noises. But, he does have a strong prey drive so he needs a home without cats or other small animals. While he gets along with other dogs for the most part, he does resource guard items from other dogs (bones, toys, or food). So, ideally he would be best as the one and only pet in the home. Max is being fostered in Chicago's Portage Park neighborhood. Max is extremely healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of the Making a Difference Rescue. To meet and possibly adopt Max, please fill in an adoption application at http://makingadifferencerescue.com/adoption-survey/ and follow up by contacting Liz at findmeahome2@sbcglobal.net or 815-258-5892 or his foster mom Amaliya at makingadifferencerescue@gmail.com (Less)

    Meet Bentley! Bentley is a two year old Lab/Pittie mix who loves to love. Bentley wants nothing more than to be a lap dog - he doesn't know what a big boy he is. Bentley likes other dogs his size when the chemistry is right - he's a young, active guy, so he wants a puppy partner who wants to play with him. Bentley has a beautiful deep chocolate coat and the smooshiest face; he's tolerant of being handled and could be a great family dog for an active, adventurous brood. Bentley is definitely up for anything!

    Rachel Ray is a friendly, playful, snuggly, happy and affectionate two-year-old, 56-pound, female Lab/Terrier-mix with warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian. Like her cheerful, dog-loving namesake, this Rachel Ray brings joy and enthusiasm to all of her activities, whether it's walks to the park, romping in the yard, squirrel-watching, playing with toys, or cuddling up with you in front of the TV. And it goes without saying that she enjoys a good meal. Rachel Ray is a super-friendly gal who loves everyone - including cats, and most dogs - and is full of kisses and tail wags for everyone she meets. She even sleeps in bed with her ... (Read More)foster mom. She loves toys and bones and rides nicely in the car. She also walks beautifully on leash wearing her gentle leader head harness, and has nice house manners. She is housebroken - however, if you're gone over eight hours, she will need a dog-walker. Rachel tends to get along best with gentle and mellow dogs smaller than herself. She is sometimes nervous around larger dogs so she's not a dog park or doggie daycare kind of girl. She's already beautifully trained; she knows sit, down and paw, and she takes treats gently from your fingers. She'd love to continue her formal education with her new family! To meet and possibly adopt Rachel Ray, please fill in the adoption application at http://www.magnificentmutts.org/DogAppForm/NewApplicationsDog.html and follow up on your application by contacting the rescue at magmuttsrescue@aol.com If you have questions for her foster mom, please contact Anne at almaclaren@sbcglobal.net Rachel Ray is healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested and micro-chipped.

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.

We haven't had him around any children so not sure on children but he loves adults and is very friendly. He is fully vetted, heart worm negative and on preventative.

    This handsome boy was in a very high kill animal shelter and was going to be put down due to space. His family who had him left him there to die because he wouldn't stay home. He can jump a 4 foot fence, he no longer does here. They said he was 2 years old, he is now 3 years old. He has been waiting a year now for his very own home. He is black with a gray muzzle, and built like a husky, moves and acts like a husky and can yodel, but has semi floppy ears, weighs about 55 pounds, he was very skinny when we first rescued him. He is sweet, bold, and fine with most dogs, even small dogs. He loves attention once he know you but until then is very ... (Read More)indifferent and unsure. He has a more independent personality here where he only gets a bit of attention as he is let in and out to play in the yard from the kennel. He has little interest in cats. His favorite way to play is to race around the yard with another dog chasing him. Other then those occasional sprints he doesn't really play much. He's a very mellow boy. Crate trained, neutered, heart worm negative, microchipped, and current on vaccinations. Current or recent past vets name and number, and contract is required to adopt. We have many rescued dogs please check out our website. (Less)

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!

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)

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.

Lab
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. Labs are descended from St. John's Water Dogs. Labs became popular in nineteenth century England.
