Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    DOB guess 5/4/14 40 lbs Miss Affectionate Emma is such a good girl, and is searching for her forever family. Looking for a companion, that is past that 'puppy stage'? Then Emma might be for you! We are guessing her to possibly be Lab/Border Collie Mix. She loves cuddles, kisses and belly rubs. Everyone who meets her says how sweet she is, with good manners. She has become very social, loves people, even strangers. Watching her play and run around the yard, her foster mom believes she would love to participate in agility classes. Also, Emma would make a great running partner. Playing with the other dogs in her foster home, is one of ... (Read More)her favorite things to do. It has also been fun watching her learn to play with toys, which she now enjoys. Currently not crated, she is fine loose in the house, since her foster mom is with her all day but she is crate trained. Not uncommon, she is not a fan of loud noises like storms, fireworks, and sensitive to 'yelling'. If you would like to meet fun loving Emma, please go to www.alwaysroom4morepaws.com to read about our adoption process and fill out an application. *Breed and age are a guess, and not a guarantee.

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-19-00612Kaleb- Coming 8/27 (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy


    Meet Kaleb and Kynlee! Great Pyrenees Mix 10 months 35-40 lbs. This brother and sister pair are hoping that some foster homes will step up and commit to rescuing them from the high kill shelter they are currently living in. If we can get committed foster homes, we can bring them to rescue the weekend of Aug. 27th. They can be fostered separately. Safe Haven Dog Rescue pays for all vetting (done locally) and provides supplies while you foster. Please contact Sue at sue.safehavendogs@yahoo.com to apply to be a foster home! She is also available for our Foster to Adopt program. This program allows you to be the family that greets her ... (Read More)when she arrives in Illinois. Foster to Adopt families have the first option to adopt if you determine this is the pup right for you! While you foster, we pay all expenses from vetting, to food and we provide a crate, leash, collars, and toys. Your family provides love (something she desperately needs!) and a safe place to lay her head until she finds her forever home. We also require that you have the ability to take her to routine veterinary visits at our participating vets. These vets are located in Wheaton, Naperville, Geneva and Elmhurst. Spay/Neuters are done in North Aurora. Fostering is the most life giving thing you can do for a dog or puppy! It is a very rewarding experience that will make a huge impact on their life. By becoming a foster you are saving 2 lives - the animal you bring into your home while he or she waits to be adopted, and the animal who gets to take your foster's place in the shelter. Please email sue.safehavendogs@yahoo.com for a foster application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. (Less)

A volunteer writes: Clara has made great strides since I first met her. She used to hide on the other side of the cage and shiver in fear. Now, she finally approaches me at the front of the kennel. I decided it was time we tried again to get this poor girl out of her cage, she seemed ready! Clara clearly was loved by someone, she is a heftier girl, spayed, and chipped. Clara avoided the leash at first, but then allowed me to put it on her and she came out of her cage ready to ... (Read More)go. Clara can be strong on leash, but it seemed mostly due to her eagerness to explore the environment and go potty outside. Outside, she sniffed and owner searched for a while and eventually made her way over to me for some treats. Clara knows sit and paw, and made great eye contact too. She allowed for petting and I had no issues with handling. Poor girl was not too excited about going back to her cage, slowed down as we approached, but eventually did walk in on her own. Sweet Clara came in as a chipped stray on 7/16 and is available for rescue NOW. NEEDS RESCUE! No one ever came for Clara, and now she needs our help. Fosters needed! (Less)

As she became more comfortable in our home, she adjusted nicely to our schedule. Pippa would be a great addition to any family. With time and patience, she seems to adjust well. She would be comfortable in a home with or without another pet, and seems comfortable with all ages of children. Once over her shyness, she's funny and playful.

    MEET ADRIAN! She is a sweet and loving 5 month old black lab mix. Adrian has overcome so many obstacles since she began living with us. When we first got Adrian she was scared of the world around her and unsure what life would bring her. We showed her love and affection and through some patience she has learned so much. Adrian LOVES going on walks and to the dog park, especially dog parks with water so she can swim. Oh yes, she LOVES the water! Adrian enjoys chasing a ball, which is her absolute favorite toy in the world. She is a chewer and is beginning to learn the difference between her toys and people stuff. A quick 'NO!' and she ... (Read More)immediately will stop what she is doing. She will learn anything for a treat, I mean anything! She knows sit, stay and 'give me paw'. She really enjoys watermelon treats while playing outside. I definitely feel the best place for Adrian is somewhere that has a fenced yard. She has a LOT of energy and absolutely loves to play. She gets along great with all dogs and children big and small. I have taken her to several dog parks and there have been no issues. Adrian is very quiet. The only time I have known her to bark is when she wants to play. She will whimper in her crate when she needs to go out, however, when she is out freely in the house she will not yet 'signal' to go out. We are working on teaching her the bell on the door signal. Adrian has a very rare form of Diabetes Insipidus which is maintained through eye drops she gets 2 times a day which will more than likely be lifelong. However there is a slim chance she will grow out of it. Adrian is beyond sweet. She will turn into putty once you begin to rub her belly or right behind her ears. She sleeps only in a crate. We have tried to spoil her and let her sleep in a bed with us, she just won't do it. She really enjoys being in her crate with a blanket over it. Adrian is a sweet and loving girl who deserves the very best. She will make a great family dog! Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption.

    Angie is a super friendly girl, and loves everyone. She is good with the dogs in her foster home, and the kitties too! Angie came into her first rescue pregnant and heartworm positive. After nursing nine puppies, and being the special girl Angie is, heartworm treatment was done. Angie came to HELP for cage rest and is now done with her medical hold. Angie is 4 years of age, DOB of 6-7-13, a Lab X shepherd, and maybe some Aussie or Husky as she has a bit of blue in each eye. She weighs 66.80 #'s of sweetness and loyalty. Although she has a partially torn off ear and is not especially photogenic, Angie is beautiful inside and out. She is ... (Read More)housetrained, kennel trained, and is well past the chewing stage. She would make a wonderful companion dog for almost any family. Angie is not much of a barker, and listens well. With a basic companion dog class, some lucky family would have a Best Friend for life. Angie is enjoying the life of being an inside girl, with good food, warmth in the winter, cool in the summer, and Love every day. Angie will make one lucky family or person very happy. (Less)

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (SUBURBAN CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* How you doin'? I'm Rusty, but my friends call me Love Muffin, and if you're looking for a handsome stud who will provide you with endless affection, I'm the dog for you! I am a 6-year-old, 85-pound reddish/gold colored Lab mix and I am looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. Not to sound vain, but I'm a pretty awesome guy. I don't know how I ended up all alone at a local animal shelter, but I was so happy when my new human friends at Fetching Tails came to save me. I have been loving life at my foster home. I am my foster ... (Read More)dad's shadow and love to follow him around, and I also really like my doggie foster sister. We have so much fun playing in the big back yard together. I even get along with the resident cat! He is usually shy around dogs, but my happy demeanor lets him know I'm a good friend. And boy do I have a happy-go-lucky personality! Since I am middle aged, though I have lively energetic bursts (especially when playing with my foster sister!) I also like to chill out and relax a LOT too! It's a nice balanced energy level, I think. I'm always happy to meet new people, and I like to bark and let other dogs know I'm here when I see them walking by the house. I'm just so friendly and want to make new pals! I am also potty trained and listen well to commands, including sit, down, paw, and 'come on' when foster dad wants me to follow him. Foster dad says I'm very well behaved in the house. I don't need to be crated when he is at work; I whine like a puppy a little when he leaves, but then I just lay around and wait for him to come home. I don't even jump on the furniture! My foster sister is always climbing on the couch, but I am happy laying on the floor near my person. When I think of my forever home, I'm not too picky. I just want a home with people who love me as much as I love them (so love me A LOT!) I would have fun with a doggie playmate, but would also be content as your one and only love muffin. I like to play in my foster dad's fenced yard, but I would do fine in a home without one as long as we could enjoy walks together. I do love food and especially treats, though, so hopefully my forever family will keep a hearty stock of cookies for me to snack on. I'll even work for my treats; my favorite 'trick' is taking selfies! I love when my foster dad's adult daughter visits and pulls out her camera phone. Hey, I know I'm handsome and if you want to take a picture to show your friends what a good looking fella I am, I am happy to make a goofy smile! So what are you waiting for? I sound like Mr. Wonderful, right? Right! Please hurry up and get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation today; tell them the love muffin Rusty sent you! I can't wait to start our life together! Love, Rusty If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org if you have any questions please email us.

Lab Mix    Age: Senior

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

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] This is very hard for me...Bear, we think he is a Lab/Corgi mix (he is short) is needing a FUREVER HOME..., Bear is a really cool dog. Everyone that meets him, just loves him, he would love to be a lap dog....although he forgets he is over 45 lbs. I have been trying to find him a home for quite a long time, as he was dumped in my lap by a guy who was getting divorced and had to move...then when he did it was convenient that he could not have a dog any longer. Bear is a good dog, but really needs to have a different home he should be an only dog, he loves adults, older adults and teenagers, needs more personal ... (Read More)attention and freedom then I can give, he spend 23+ hours a day in his cage at my home. He is neutered, up on all of his shots, house broken, when he is the only dog....but will mark if others are in the house. He listens to most commands, and all things considered I love him, and this is breaking my heart. I have had many rescues in my home over the past few years, several papillons, a jack russell mix, 2 cocker mixes, and boston mix, and a 14+ lab that we took in almost 2 years ago, to spend the end of her life in my home. This breaks my heart, but he deserves love, he adores teenagers especially girls. Due to several reasons including personal health issues, I can't give him that. Bear should not be left free when know one is home as he will mark furniture( I believe he thinks he has been abandoned, when home alone not in the crate) , he loves his crate, has his meals in there and does not have accidents. I am gone 10 plus hours a day. He had seizures when we first got him (another thing he original owner 'forgot' to tell us) but we found he has a grain allergy, and since going grain free the seizures are no more. Being in my home, in a crate for so many hours a day, with zero exposure to possible furever homes is not fair to Bear, he deserves better...much better.... He does not show well in a group environment, we have tried to bring him to several adoption events, he barks and lunges at the other dogs, but once he is given a chance to meet the other dogs, all he wants to do his play, so one on one meets with people is important for someone to get to see who he really is. So by this weekend I am going to relinquish him to a local no-kill shelter, hoping he gets more exposure to find the right furever home, unless someone here can help him and consider adopting him.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (SUBURBAN CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* Are you looking for a wise, mature gentleman to spend your life with? Here I am! My name is Wilson, and I am an 8-year-old lab mix looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. Not only am I am I a healthy 65 pounds and have stunning black fur with highlights that look golden brown in the sun, I also have a gentle, loving personality that makes me quite the catch, if I could so humbly report! My Fetching Tails friends rescued me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where my previous owners left me when they didn't want me ... (Read More)anymore. I'm practically perfect in every way, so my new humans tell me they can't understand how anyone could ever just drop me off at a loud, busy shelter like that. It's ok, though, because I'm loving life in my foster home, and my foster mom tells me my future is going to be even better with a loving, permanent family! I can't wait! When I say 'practically perfect,' I'm not just being cutesy to try and convince you to give me a chance...my foster parents can back me up when I tell you that I have great house manners. I don't have potty accidents, I do fine when mom and dad are at this place called 'work' during the day, and I know basic commands including 'sit,' 'stay,' 'come,' and the all important 'no.' I don't like being confined in a crate, but that doesn't bother my foster parents because I just like to curl up on the carpet or dog bed while they are gone and don't mess with anything I'm not supposed to. And please don't let my age detract you. Yes, I am eight years old, but that's just a number; I still have a life of love and devotion to give you! I'm not hyper with endless energy like many young labs, which could be a good thing, right? Right! I do take some joint supplements that my foster mom can tell you about; they are like the vitamins you humans take for yourselves and they help keep my legs feeling good, which is important because I still really like my long walks with my foster parents. I'm not going to be running any marathons anymore, but who doesn't love a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood to sniff the flowers and say hi to friends? I'm a friendly guy, so let's get out there and give your neighbors a chance to tell you what a good, distinguished doggie you have! And I can't forget to tell you my absolute favorite activity: rolling over on my back so you can give me lots of belly rubs! Nothing feels better than stretching out next to my person while getting my tummy scratched. Doesn't that just sound perfect? So if a cuddly, mellow, loving companion like me sounds like a match made in heaven, please get in touch with my human friends at Fetching Tails Foundation today and tell them Wilson is the guy for you! I can't wait to start our 'happy tail' together!

He is very smart and knows right from wrong, but unfortunately, he has not had an owner who has been able to give him the time and love he so deserves and desires. Cash is 7 years old. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    DOB 3/1/15 After seeing Minnie's shelter picture, we knew she needed out ASAP! She was so thin at only 25 lbs, and now after a lot of TLC from her foster, she is 40 lbs. Upon arriving on transport, she greeted everyone with tail wagging and kisses, she knew she was now safe. We think she might be lab/pit mix and about 1 yr old. After arriving at her foster home, she got to learn what being a puppy was all about, learning how to play and what a dog toy is. She has blossomed into a beautiful, happy, affectionate, active pup, who loves to go on walks. Minnie is not a fan of the crate, but doesn't need one since she does great without one. ... (Read More) Cuddling up with her foster family at bed time, is one of her favorite things. Since she was an outside dog, she had to learn about housebreaking. Rarely having any accidents, she is almost there. She enjoys, is playful with and friendly with other dogs, but prefers dogs that aren't dominant. Now that she has been shown what life should be like, she is looking for someone who is home most of the day and can get out and get her exercised. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Tiffany is the sweetest baby! The person who transported her to us from GA fell in love with her and, if he didn't have so many dogs of his own, would probably have kept her. That is how great this girl is. Tiffany is spayed, up-to-date on her shots, and microchipped. She gets along wonderfully with other dogs and loves people. She is a curious girl who likes to explore and lets her nose lead her. She is quiet - I did not hear her bark, whimper, or whine the whole half hour it took me to get her to her foster home. Tiffany is crate and potty trained. We are looking for an adopter that has another dog in the home - Tiffany needs the ... (Read More)companionship - and who enjoys an active lifestyle. When last weighed, she came in at 52 lbs. We believe she is between 1 and 2 years old, so she is fully grown. She'll make a lucky family a wonderful dog. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult


    **URGENT!! SARGIE HAS BEEN STUCK IN BOARDING FOR OVER A YEAR AND RESCUE CAN NO LONGER PAY BILL TO KEEP HIM THERE.** Through no fault of his own, Sargie has had a rough past- given up and now placed in boarding. Sargie is a lover and cuddler. He is VERY food motivated and loves to please his handler. Sargie loves to go on long walks, runs, or hikes. He loves the water and the car. Sargie has amazing leash manners but is a bit hyper at first due to being in a kennel for several months. Sadly, Sargie received very little socialization and training in the 3 years he was living with his adoptive family, so Sargie has some fear issues that we ... (Read More)are working on. He needs a foster that has no other pets and no children. Sargie has begun training in our facility with their personal trainer. Sargie is such a good boy and does not deserve to be in boarding...but until we find proper foster placement, this is our only way to keep him safe. We are praying we can find a foster for him quickly...to bring the joy back in to his heart. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Tootsie is a handsome and dog-friendly three-year-old, 40-pound, male, fawn Lab / Shar Pei-mix looking for a loving guardian. Tootsie has the softest fur and gives his favorite people kisses. He knows the command sit and takes treats gently from your fingers. He would do wonderfully in a home with another dog since he is very playful. He was originally found stray with his sister who had been hit by a car. She lost one of her legs and has since been adopted. Tootsie would do best with teens and adults as he is a little nervous and is a flight risk. He's a smart guy who teaches himself how to open doors. When he settles down in a loving ... (Read More)home, I think that fleeing will be the last thing on his mind especially after taking some training classes with his new family. Tootsie's adoption fee of $300 benefits the rescued pets of Tails of Hope. He is now healthy, neutered, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested, and on monthly heartworm preventative. He is currently at the Tails of Hope Shelter in Highland Park, Illinois. To meet and possibly adopt Tootsie, please fill in the adoption application at: http://tailsofhope.org/availabledogs.html and follow up by contacting tailsofhope@aol.com or 847-557-9554. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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)

    Bode is a really good dog. He is fine with our cat and great with my 2 year old daughter. He is a typical lab and needs a lot of attention and with my new job I just can't give it to him. He loves to be outside and doesn't run away even though we don't have a fenced in yard and he has awesome blue eyes.

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.
