Rescue Me ID: 17-09-13-00573Harris (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Howdy, friends and future family! My name is Harris and if you are looking for a handsome Southern gentleman to fill your heart and home with lots of love, it is your lucky day because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a 9-month-old yellow Lab mix, and I currently weigh in at about 30 pounds...I don't think I will grow up to be a huge dog, but I could definitely gain a few more pounds to fill out. I am a ridiculously good looking fella: I have blonde fur with lighter highlights on my chest and ... (Read More)paws, and my striking chocolate eyes display the full array of my loving, fun personality! I am a Hurricane Harvey survivor, and made the long ride to Chicago after my previous owners surrendered me to a large intake facility in Texas because they lost their home and could no longer take care of me. My friends from Fetching Tails were helping at the shelter, and promised to help me find a new loving forever home! It has been a confusing time for me, but I am really enjoying myself in my foster home and am having lots of fun! It takes me a couple minutes to feel comfortable in a new environment or with new people, but once I open up I quickly feel at home! I make fast friends with dogs of all sizes; my BFF at my foster home is a Doberman and we get along great! I love to play, play, play with my big buddy! I am shy with new people at first, and though I connect faster with women, after taking a few minutes to know I can trust them I warm up to men, too! I also do well with human kiddos, too! I am young and have been through a lot, so with a loving family and stability I will regain all my confidence in no time. My favorite activities include playing with my canine foster sibling and sunbathing outside, so I would really like to have a secure, fenced yard. I also really enjoy long walkies so I could be your exercise pal on strolls through the neighborhood! I also LOVE receiving pets and cuddles from my people: it feels so good to get a nice massage! I love affection and attention from my people! For a young dog who has been through so much craziness recently, I have pretty amazing house manners! I am potty trained and enjoy resting in my crate while my humans go to work or run errands: just give me a bone to chew and I am content to wait to greet you with tail wags when you come home. I am working on perfecting my leash-walking skills and learning commands including sit and no. Since I am young and still have lots to learn, Fetching Tails Foundation will require my adopters to sign me up for training classes. I think that sounds like loads of fun since it will help me show what a smart boy I am and it will also be a good chance to get out and work on boosting my confidence while we bond together. I can't wait! I am a loving, obedient, curious, sweetheart who can't wait to find his forever home with a family to love and entertain! If you think that I could be a good fit for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them handsome Harris is the boy for you! Kisses and tail wags, Harris If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

    Olaf is a big sweet 14-month-old, 70-pound tall male white American Bulldog/Labrador-mix with one blue eye and one brown eye looking for a loving guardian. Olaf enjoys the company of people and gets along just fine with other dogs. He rides nicely in the car and walks absolutely beautifully on leash. Olaf landed at a Southern Illinois shelter when his human could no longer take care of him. His original owner passed away and the guy's son tried to keep him on his land. But, Olaf kept straying under the barbed wire to play with and chase the cattle on the farm next door. He has a big scar on his right shoulder from the barbed wire and he ...

Their animal control officers dubbed him the sweetest dog to ever live and sent him to me in Chicago to find him a home without cows to chase!

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-12-00150Abilene (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy, y'all! My name is Abilene, and if you are looking for a sweet, snuggly Southern Belle to call your little darlin' for life, please consider giving me the loving forever family I have dreamed about for so long! I am a 2-year-old Retriever mix, and I am 40 pounds of pure love and devotion. I have light blonde fur, and the most soulful eyes you will ever see. As soon as I look at you with my precious gaze, it is very hard not to love me immediately! My sweet personality shines right through my beautiful eyes and smile. I am a Hurricane Harvey survivor, and met my friends from Fetching Tails at a large intake facility in Texas where my ... (Read More)previous owner surrendered me and a few other dogs after their home was destroyed in the storm. It was sad and confusing to lose the only home I have ever known, but I am honestly feeling very lucky to be a part of the Fetching family now because I have some signs of neglect and need some TLC to feel 100 percent again. I had bad skin and ear infections, and I am also heartworm positive. I am getting all the medical care I need now, and am already feeling better now that my pretty blonde fur is starting to grow back healthy! I am a cuddly, quiet girl and am loving all the attention I'm receiving in my foster home! My favorite activities include following my foster mommy around and climbing up on her lap every chance I get so I can a belly rub or head scratch. When I think of my forever home, I would love to have a kind, patient, loving family who will give me all the attention I love! Although I previously lived with other dogs, I think I would prefer to be your only furry friend so I can be the queen of the castle and have all your attention for myself. I can be shy when I first meet new human friends, but I bond quickly to anyone who lets me sniff their hand and then offers me a belly rub. I have pretty great house manners and am a quiet roommate, too. I am fully potty trained, and I also adore my crate: I think of it as a safe space and love to go in mine to relax on my dog bed and take a nap when the door is left open. I do fine home alone when my foster parents are at work or running errands; I nap the day away and am happy to receive pets when they come home. I enjoy going for strolls in the neighborhood with foster mommy and walk well on a leash, though I do get excited when I see a squirrel and want to play chase (so probably best if there are no small critters or kitties in my forever home!) Overall, I am a very calm girl who is content to snuggle and receive lots of love from my humans. I would like a calm, loving forever home to call my own, especially since I will be recovering from heartworm treatment. My foster mommy will be happy to explain in more detail the process, and what I need to thrive! If a sweet, affectionate, devoted lady sounds like the perfect canine companion for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon! After the life I have had, I am so excited to finally get my happily ever after! Love, Abilene If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us at Info@fetchingtailsfoundation.org Adoption Requirements: Be at least 21 years of age Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) Have a valid ID with current address Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment Lives in 50 mile radius of Itasca within the Illinois border Adoption Fees: Senior dog - 8 years and up, $75 Adult or young dog - 6 months to 7 years, $250 Puppies - under 6 months, $350 (Less)

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

    Meet Maggie 4-5 year old lab/hound mix 35 pounds Maggie came to us from Alabama after spending several years in a shelter. She is a timid but sweet girl. Once she warms up to you, and it doesn't take long, she cannot get enough attention. She loves her humans. She will come seeking head rubs and belly rubs. She will jump up on the couch for a cuddle. She gets along well with her canine foster brothers and enjoys running and playing in the yard. She will also help you keep your yard chipmunk and rabbit free! She would do well in a home with another dog to show her the ropes or as an only dog with a family willing to give her lots of ... (Read More)attention. She loves to go on walks and is learning to walk on a leash. After a romp outside or a good walk she is happy to curl up in a sunny spot or be your couch buddy while you watch tv. Maggie is housebroken and crate trained and sleeps through the night in her crate without a peep. She likes to chase cats so she would appreciate a cat free home to help her avoid temptations. Maggie had a cyst removed from her ear after she arrived which required a small piece of her ear to be removed. The cyst was tested and was benign. Her vets did a stellar job with her surgery and though she looks a little more unique, she is still beautiful! And she is very soft! Maggie is a bit of a contortionist and will need a new home with a solid fence or would need to be leashed at all times. Even though Maggie has thrived in her foster home, because of her 'sheltered' life, she can be fearful of new things. She went through training at Woofbeach to help her overcome her fears. Woofbeach trainers will work with her new family to help them continue her training. Maggie is a sweet girl who just wants to be loved. She is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccines. Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee).

Jupiter came to us with his brothers and sisters from a shelter in Tennessee and has been an absolute delight in his foster home. Jupiter has a lot of puppy energy and would do great with an active family. He is great with kids, but he can be a little mouthy, and a little jumpy, so he would benefit from a home with older children.

(Read More)not a fan of the crate all the time. He would prefer to be around his people. He is mostly housebroken (only two accidents in his foster home). He is working on leash training, and is doing well. While he tends to stay close by people, it is recommended that Jupiter have a fenced in yard. He loves to play with a rope, and will run after a ball or Frisbee, but is still working on bringing them back.

    Boom goes the dynamite - because Boomer is just dynamite! This active, energetic, affectionate goofball is a two year old pit bull/lab mix who is just ready to BOOM SHAKE THE ROOM! Boomer arrived at ACL when a citizen found him dragging a heavy chain through his yard. Boomer had clearly been treated poorly by his previous owners, but you'd never know it from his bright, spunky personality! Boomer his a little unmannered - he loves to jump up on you and give love nibbles! - but with a little basic training, he's sure to shape up quick. He's totally housebroken, and he's surprisingly submissive with other dogs. Boomer would be a great second ... (Read More)dog to a laidback canine. Boomer is still pretty nervous about new things, so he'll need an adopter willing to give him some time to truly relax and trust his new home. To make sure he starts off on the right foot, Boomer will need to enroll in a transitional training class upon adoption. Boomer is going to be a great companion - he just needs a little bit of patience while he learns his manners and trusts his new people. Come meet him today! (Less)

    Nikki came in as a stray early this summer. She is one of those 'invisible' black dogs. She has sadly watched all the other dogs get adopted this summer and she just sits in her cage, waiting. She is a really good dog that will be forever grateful to have a home. She is affectionate, loves pets and walks well on a leash. She will make an excellent companion. She doesn't ask for much. Please open your heart and home to rescue this sweet 'invisible' black dog!

    Hi friends, my name is Bella. I am 4 years old and I'm a lady. I've been spayed so I can't have any puppies but that's okay even though I'm only 4 I can still act like one from time to time. I love to play but my energy level isn't off the charts, it's about average. Playing helps me keep my sleek shape. I weigh in between 45 and 50 pounds. I like being the center of everyone's attention so I am happy being the only pet. You just have to see how loveable I am, it's absolutely amazing my heart is so big, that I have plenty of room for lots and lots of love. Speaking of love did I mention how I love to snuggle?? Well I do and I'm very ... (Read More)affectionate. I can talk about myself all day because I have this terrific personality, but I was told to keep it short. So pretty please listen if you have room in your heart and in your home I know I would be a perfect fit and then I can show off all my other fantastic qualities(3 Thank you so much for reading all about me.

She absolutely loves other dogs especially large dogs and gets along with cats and many other animals. Since Wendy is timid, we are recommending a home with other dogs to help her build her confidence. Wendy is looking for a patient family.

She has been around children, and as long as they know to give her her space she is fine. Wendy is good on a leash ... (Read More)and enjoys walks. She is very smart and is working on potty training, she's almost there! 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. Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@yahoo.com for an application or additional details.

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

    Jasmine was found as a stray in So. IL and sat in the shelter for 6 weeks before we could finally pull her. (Thank you to the AC officer for not euthanizing her in that time!). She is now in a foster home. Unfortunately, poor Jasmine will need to undergo painful heartworm treatment starting on June 12th which will require her to be kept quiet for an additional 60 days!!! None of this is going to be easy on Jasmine and we are very thankful to her foster for loving her during her difficult treatment. IN THE MEANTIME, we are searching for Jasmine's forever home. She is a great dog that we even sent for a week of professional training and ... (Read More)evaluation. The trainer said she walks like a dream and is very smart! We think she may have a bit of a prey drive in her so we are suggesting no cats until we know more. We also think she is much too rough for kids, so no kids under 12 for her. Jasmine will require an owner that is committed to more obedience training. Can you open your heart to caring for and loving Jasmine? If so, send an email to Christine@howlin4help.com (Less)

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)
