Animal ID: 2883Hunter (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    Meet Hunter. Hunter is a male yellow-lab mix. He is 7 weeks of age,and was born approximately January 1, 2015, and will be ready to join his 4-ever family at 8 weeks of age.I think you will agree, he is adorable! Like all puppies, Hunter is a little ball of curious energy. He is very people oriented and wants to be with his human every second of the day. Because he's so anxious to please, Hunter should be very easy to train, but he will need someone with the time and patience to do that for him. Since he is a young puppy, children over 5 years is best. Also someone home most the day to help him learn good manners and potty train him ... (Read More)is what a young pup needs. If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting Hunter, please fill out an online application at www.helpinganimals.org (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-26-00237Pops (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Pops is a fun-loving, 60-pound, three-year-old, skinny and strong, male, chocolate and vanilla pit-mix looking for a loving guardian. He is currently living in a foster home with a German Shepherd and Chihuahua with whom he gets along beautifully. He gets a little nervous around male dogs that are much larger than himself, but plays nicely with just about all dogs. Pops also loves to play and chew his toys and bones. After his exercise, he is relaxed and low-key in the home. Pops is a responsive, highly trainable, food-motivated and smart guy who has quickly learned the commands: sit, down, touch, salute and paw. He looks right into your ... (Read More)eyes with his gorgeous amber eyes for direction. He is housebroken and crate-trained. Pops landed at Chicago Animal Care and Control when his human went to prison. It was his lucky break. The poor guy appeared to have lived as the only dog in the home but had so many bite marks, scars and fly bites, it's hard to say what he endured. He also had an embedded collar, so he has a furless ring that goes right around his neck. While he may have some marks and physical scars, he has no emotional scars from his past. He lets anyone touch him anywhere. In fact, he squeals with delight when you scratch his butt. Otherwise he is a surprisingly quiet dog who loves to snuggle. Pops would do beautifully in a home with another dog or as the only dog if he got out to play regularly. He will do best without cats in the home. If you are interested in adopting Pops please contact Diana at diana@windycitybootcamp.com or 773-899-1960. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. He is healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm tested (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
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!

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. Her adoption fee of $100 benefits the rescued dogs and cats of Magnificent Mutts. (Less)

Personality: Average 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 beautiful 'fluffy' tail, stunning looks and amazing intelligence. Piper 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. She 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 children in her foster home and she does have the energy of a puppy. She wants to play with everyone and doesn't know that her playfulness might scare child that has not had dogs...she just wants to play! There is ONE thing that Piper does not appreciate...that is cats! So she would do best in a home without them. 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.

    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.

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 her kennel. ... (Read More)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. 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. Due to this, we are recommending a fenced yard. 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. Due to her great progress, since she has been rescued, we are recommending an experienced dog owner to continue working with her. The family that adopts Liz will be very lucky to have such a loving girl! 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.

    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.

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. If you are interested in adopting him, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net or 708-224-1900. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog Rescue. He is currently living in a foster home in Rockford, Illinois. (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)

Rescue Me ID: 13-07-17-00104Tide (male)

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.

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.
