Rescue Me ID: 17-01-17-00165Mario (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    ABOUT SUPER MARIO Mario is an AWESOME dog! Mario is four years old - he was a rescue dog, so we're not sure of his exact birth date, but he was about 6 - 8 weeks old when we adopted him on July 1, 2012. He's very handsome, as you can see from his picture. He is majority boxer, with lab and some other breeds mixed in - a good old-fashioned American mutt. He is extremely well-behaved, having completed a 'doggy boot camp', with several weeks of 24-hour training by professionals. He's a big, strong boy - 75 pounds or so. He's super friendly - loves to snuggle and pretend he's a lap dog. He loves to play - you can see him in action here: ... (Read More)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVbRQtKD-Vo. Mario isn't, of course, perfect. He has had a few issues of aggression with other dogs. Never with people, but his size can be an issue for small children, as he can knock them down with his enthusiasm. He's been a pampered boy his whole life - he's not suited to be an outdoor dog, or to be a hunting dog. Mario's shots are all up to date, and he comes with everything you need - his crate, bed, placemat, bowls, vet records, food, etc. Mario has no health issues, and is ready to love you and your family. Please help Mario find his new forever home! ABOUT YOU Mario deserves lots of love, which means a home with lots of dog lovers. A backyard with enough space for a big dog to romp in. Mario has been trained on an Invisible Fence system, and comes with an Invisible Fence collar, if you have one, or if you would install it. Otherwise, he respects fence boundaries, too. Mario needs to be the center of attention - your home should not have any other pets, nor should it have small children. Teenagers are fine - Mario loves all humans, he's just too big to be safe around small children unsupervised. You should love dogs, and appreciate the benefits of a dog that is still young and has many years ahead of him, but is old enough to already be well-trained and house-broken. If this sounds like you, please contact us right now - we'd love to bring Mario to meet you! ABOUT THE ADOPTION There will be no fee to adopt Mario. If you like, we'd ask that you please donate to your local shelter / rescue, or to the website this is posted on. The adoption will be considered temporary, and if it goes well after that point, can be finalized in a month or two. There will be a contract guaranteeing Mario's safe return to us should the adoption not work out for any reason, at any time, no questions asked. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Don't let Tootsie Roll's sad face fool you - she's one happy girl! Tootsie is a 9 month old Lab mix puppy who arrived at ACL in terrible condition after being abandoned in front of a local vet clinic in a crate. Tootsie is very thin and someone did a terrible crop job to her ears, but the one thing they couldn't touch was her great temperament! Tootsie is absolutely a gem - she loves everyone and everything, and she just can't wait to get into a forever home that will treat her like she deserves. Tootsie is good with other dogs when the chemistry is right (she seems to prefer small dogs), kids of all ages, and she's at a great age to ... (Read More)introduce to cats. She's got such a wiggly, giggly, jiggly personality that it's easy to overlook the weight she has yet to gain or the rough edges of her ears. Tootsie Roll may have had a bad start, but she's definitely not letting that stand in the way of her living a wonderful life full of fun! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-26-00330Ricky (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

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! My name is Ricky; I am sweet, sensitive, curious, and I am looking for a loving, patient family to call my very own. Could that be with you? I am a 3-year-old, 60-pound Labrador mix, and I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am very humble, but my human friends tell me I am a stunningly handsome boy: they like to tell me I am fancy because I look like I am wearing what they call a tuxedo. I have rich black fur, and my chest is white as freshly fallen snow. My friends from Fetching Tails ... (Read More)Foundation rescued me from a shelter in Southern Illinois, where my previous owners left me and my two sisters. My sisters were more outgoing than me so they were adopted quickly, but because of my shy nature I couldn't find a home and the shelter reached out to see if FTF could help. My foster momma was very excited to offer to help me find a home so I made my way to Chicagoland for a fresh start! My foster home is wonderful: I have two big dog friends to show me the ropes and help me gain confidence. I think it would be amazing to have a dog friend in my forever home because I am most comfortable watching my fellow canines to see how home life works. I can be shy at first with new people and new surroundings; the first few days in my foster home I was content to chill in a corner with my comfy dog bed while I watched everything going on to make sure that I was safe. Now that I am feeling more comfortable, I explore the house more and hang out with my doggie friends. So a family who will be understanding that I need some time to decompress at first in my forever home is really important to me. One of my favorite activities is exploring the yard and wrestling with my doggie friends while we are outside. I would love a forever home with a fenced yard so I can enjoy the great outdoors. I am potty trained, and very comfortable in a crate (I consider it my doggie-den safe space!) I do fine when mommy has to leave the house for work or errands; like I said, I love my crate and am happy to curl up for a nap while she is gone. Fetching Tails Foundation likes to encourage all adopters to attend some training sessions with their new pets, and I think that could be very beneficial to help me learn some new tricks and boost my confidence. Foster mommy is working with me on leash training, and I think we could continue to work on that together. I love to eat so with some treats as motivation, I am sure we could learn a lot together and master many skills! I have waited a long time to find a loving family who will help me live the good life I have always dreamed about. If you think you could be the family to help me find my confidence and happiness, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon! I can't wait to start my happily ever after with a family that help me reach my full potential and love me forever! Love, Ricky If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us! 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)

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-17-00265Mixie (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    MIXIE HAS BEEN IN A SHELTER FOR 9 YEARS!!!!!!!!!! Literally her entire life. She is located in Colfax, IL (not Tinley Park) and we're on a mission to get her in a home for Christmas. Volunteers say: Mixie craves attention and would love to be your new best friend! She is a dark brindled lab/boxer mix who is always smiling and wagging her tail. We think she is between 9 and 10 years old, but she is still very active! You'd never guess her age if it wasn't for her soft, graying muzzle. She is not keen on sharing the spotlight with other dogs, so she would need to be an only dog. But she's such a sweet girl that she's all you'll ever need. ... (Read More):) (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Yoshi 3 year old Lab/bird dog mix. Yoshi has a great personality and loves everyone he meets! He is great with other dogs and loves people! Being a bird dog with a prey drive, we recommend he not be in a home with cats or small animals. Yoshi needs a home where someone is home most of the day and is willing to work with him. Yoshi has developed a bad habit ofl marking in the house, however no one has worked to train him to stop this behavior. There are many training techniques to get dogs to stop this behavior and Safe Haven will help to work with his foster or adoptive family. Yoshi will likely need a belly band which will ... (Read More)deter him from his behavior. While out of the house, Yoshi will also need to be crated. These are all things that Safe Haven can provide and will work on with his foster family. He is also available for our Foster to Adopt program. 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 he desperately needs!) and a safe place to lay his head until he finds his forever home. We also require that you have the ability to take him 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 safehavendogsIL@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.

Lab Mix    Age: Adult


    DEERFIELD (not Tinley) Festus is an 8 year old Lab mix who has been sitting in a shelter a very long time waiting for his forever home. 'Festus is a mellow guy who never seems to be in much of a hurry. He was happy to come out of his kennel, but took his time sniffing along the walkway. Festus even spent several minutes sniffing around the same five-square-foot area of grass until I encouraged him to keep moving along so we could spend some time in the off-leash run. Festus may not be the most handsome dog at the shelter (his fur is pretty sparse by his hind legs and tail), but he has the sweetest face. When I was petting him, he stared ... (Read More)right into my eyes with the most loving expression and it was just so clear that he has a gentle soul. Festus isn't overly active and we didn't make it all the way around the woodland trail, but that makes him easy to walk and a great companion for just hanging around the house. If you're looking for an older, quieter dog, come in soon to meet Festus!' (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Tootsie is a handsome, loyal and dog-friendly five-year-old, 55-pound, male, fawn Labrador Retriever / brush coat Shar Pei-mix with warm brown eyes and a fluffy tail 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 in the Chicago suburbs with his sister who had been hit by a car. She lost one of her legs and has since been adopted. 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. Typically Shar Pei don't enjoy playing ball, but Tootsie's Labrador side loves playing ball and catching Frisbees! The Shar Pei part of him makes him a little slower to warm up to new people. Tootsie's adoption fee of $300 benefits the rescued pets of Tails of Hope. He is very 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)

    This poor girl's story just breaks our heart. She was once an indoor dog before her heartless family abandoned her and her buddy (a Malamute) when they decided to move, kick the dogs out of the house and leave them behind. An evil neighbor SHOT AND KILLED her buddy and they were threatening to shoot Molly, but a friendly neighbor called animal control in the hopes of saving her. We can only imagine the fear and horror she felt since the day she was left behind. Howlin 4 HELP pulled this very tall and very friendly Doberman mix from the shelter and she is currently living in a foster home. She has been spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped and ... (Read More)we are happy to report she is HW NEGATIVE! We are now taking applications for her adoption. She is good with cats and with all the other dogs in the foster home, but we always recommend SLOW introductions. She is approximately 2 years old, but already has a few white whiskers, no doubt from all the stress she has recently endured. Her tail is docked to about 5 inches. Her foster family is familiar with Dobermans and they say she is very much a typical kind and loving, Velcro Doberman personality so it would be great if her adopter had some knowledge of the breed. We are only guessing that she might have some lab in her too. Molly is very athletic and can jump most fences, but she is completely trained on the underground fence at her foster home. Molly now needs her very own family to show her what true love and commitment is. Could you be that special person to help heal Molly's broken heart? Please consider adopting this wonderful dog so she will have something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving! For an application, email Christine@Howlin4help.com (Less)

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.

(Read More)a stray in February of 2012. She was adopted briefly, but did not get along with a territorial dog in her new home '| so sadly, she was returned.

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)

    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 could jump a 4 foot fence, he no longer does here. They said he was 2 years old, he is now 4 years old, sadly he has been stuck for 2 years waiting for a 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 ... (Read More)is very indifferent and unsure. He has a more independent personality. 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, microchipped, and current on vaccinations. Current or recent past vet clinics number, and contract is required to adopt. We have many rescued dogs please check out our website. (Less)

    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)
