Rescue Me ID: 18-05-01-00287Mya (female)

Flat-Coated Retriever Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi there! My name is Mya, and I am a sweet, special senior lady who is looking for a retirement home to call my own! I am an 11-year-old retriever mix who is available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I arrived to Fetching Tails in rough shape medically, but thanks to lots of tender, loving care I am now a beautiful 60-pound lady with luxuriously soft, shiny black fur. I am a devoted friend and have a loving personality that is even more beautiful than my stunning physique! I came to Fetching Tails from Chicago ... (Read More)Animal Care & Control, where my previous owners surrendered me because they could no longer take care of my medical needs. You see, I have Cushings Disease, and left untreated I was suffering with conditions including incontinence and extreme hair loss. I was going to be euthanized, but my friends at Fetching Tails fell in love with me at first sight and promised to give me a chance to find a loving home for my senior years. My amazing foster family has nursed me back to health, and now that I am on a healthy diet and medicine I am feeling like a brand new dog! I am a loving, loyal queen and lavish my favorite people with attention. I love to be brushed and will gaze at you with my bright, soulful eyes while you pet my silky fur. As an older lady, I am a calm, mellow girl who enjoys lots of naps and am content to lay near you on my favorite bed of soft, squishy towels (I know that sounds unique, but I will choose my beloved towel pile over fancier dog beds any day of the week!) But I also love leisurely strolls as much as possible, so if you are looking for a walking buddy I am your girl! I might be on the slow side, but I think of it as a good reminder to take time to enjoy the world around us! Because of my Cushings Disease, I need to tinkle more often than most dogs, so it would also be nice to have a fenced yard where I can go out and do my business when I need to as well. I would also love a home without many stairs so I can get around with ease. If you have human kiddos, I would prefer them to be older since I love the calm lifestyle; my human foster brother is 14 and we are good buddies! I also get along with dogs and kitty cats (I mostly ignore them!), though I would be very happy as your one-and-only furry friends as well since I love human attention most of all. I am a well-behaved lady, too! I let my foster momma know any time I have to go outside to go potty, and will relax on my bed most of the day even when she leaves the house. My foster is a stay-at-home momma and that has been a great benefit to me because of my need for frequent potty breaks, so it would be nice to have humans that are home more often than not in my forever home, as well. If I have to go potty when my foster family isn't home, I will use a lined potty pad near the door. My medicines have helped a lot with controlling my urination issues, but I still might have an occasional accident. My foster momma will be happy to explain my medicine regimen in further detail so we can have the healthiest life together possible! I know my specials needs might be a little challenging, but I dream about the special people who will look past my illness and see the devoted, loving, gorgeous girl I am and give me the amazing home I crave where I can rest my head and enjoy my life with you by my side. If you think you could be the loving family for me, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon so we can start our happily ever after together! As much as I love my foster home, I am so excited to shower my forever family with lots of love!

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-28-00314Hailee (female)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi there! My name is Hailee, and I am a cuddly, laid-back beauty queen who is looking for a loving family and a comfy castle to call my own. I am a gorgeous, 10-year-old schnauzer/wire-haired terrier mix, and I weigh in at around 25 pounds so I am the perfect size to be your snuggle buddy companion and keep your lap warm! I am like an abstract painting and have one-of-a-kind gray, brown, and tan scruffy hair. My face is my main attraction, and my distinct white eyebrows perfectly highlight my soulful, loving eyes. I think I am so ... (Read More)pretty on the outside because I have a beautiful, attentive personality! Fetching Tails saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where I was brought as a stray. My loving foster parents welcomed me to their home with open arms, and I have been relaxing like royalty ever since! I have a very chill personality, and I love the quiet, calm environment of my foster home. My favorite activity in the whole world is snuggling with my humans on the couch and receiving belly rubs. I am sure you have heard the phrase 'man's best friend' before, right? That is definitely true in my case! Don't get me wrong, I adore foster momma, too, but I love be attached at the lap to my foster daddy! I am his little shadow and keep my eyes on him wherever he is. I get along with everyone I meet, but think I would prefer a quiet forever home with adults since the calm lifestyle is definitely my scene! I currently live with another dog and a cat, and I get along well with both of them. I would do best with a calm dog like me in my forever home since I love everything zen! I am a gentle, quiet girl and make an excellent roommate. I take food and my treats gently (did I mention how much I love treats? I hope you will provide me with lots of yummy snacks!), and I am happy when I see my leash for walkie time. I have mastered potty training and know to do my business outside! I do fine relaxing in my favorite comfy nap spots when my foster parents leave the house and don't need to be crated; my foster daddy is retired so I am never left home for more than a couple hours at a time. I am even good in the car! I am so easy going and calm, and dream about my forever home where I can nap and snuggle with my family to my heart's content! If a darling, affectionate cuddle buddy sounds like what you love in a canine companion, please fill out an application soon and tell my friends at Fetching Tails that Hailee is the sweetheart for you! I am so excited to start our happily ever after together!

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-28-00291Sheba (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi future family! Are you looking for a soulful, smart Shepard mix to be your new friend for life? My name is Sheba, and I am looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a uniquely gorgeous 1.5-year-old lady, and currently weigh in at around 50 pounds. I have beautiful coloring with licorice black, caramel, and white fur. And how can you not love my face? I have ears that go on for days, and my love-filled eyes just beg you to love me. But looks aren't everything, and I have to say my tender personality is ... (Read More)even better than my stunning good looks! I came to Fetching Tails Foundation thanks to my friends at the Tunica Humane Society in Mississippi. I was saved from the stray life after I had a litter of puppies on the porch of a good samaritan who called the shelter. Once my puppies were old enough to travel, we made our way to Chicagoland to find loving homes; now that my babies have been adopted I am ready to find my dream life, too! I hope to find a patient family who will help me come out of my shell and continue to blossom into the happy, confident girl I am meant to be! I was shy when I was first rescued, but thanks to my loving foster family, I am learning to enjoy the good things in life like playing with toys and going for fun walks around the neighborhood. One of my favorite games is to carry shoes around the house; I don't chew or destroy them, I just move them to where I think my foster parents will want to find them! I am demure when I first meet new people, but once I know you I adore you and am very loving and sweet, with a sense of humor, too! I also really love other dogs, and think it would be fun to have a canine companion to play with at my forever home! I get along with cats, but am playful with them so as long as a kitty cat likes my silliness we could be buddies, too. A fenced yard would be nice, too, because I love exploring and sniffing around a nice yard! I am a very smart girl and mild-mannered, as well. I am crate trained and consider it my safe space where I enjoy taking naps even when the door is open! I do fine resting and relaxing in my crate during the day while my foster parents are at work. I am also potty trained, too! I am a treat motivated girl and love to learn, so I think it would be great fun if we could take some training classes together; my foster momma thinks I would especially love an agility training class and that sounds like fun to me! Fetching Tails encourages all adopters to sign up for training sessions with their new pets, and I think it would be an excellent opportunity for us to work on our bond together and me to gain confidence while proving what a scholar I am! More than anything, I dream about having a happy, love-filled life with a patient family to call my own. I am ready to soak up your attention and live the life of luxury by your side! If you think I could be the perfect pretty girl to be your new best furry friend, please get in touch with Fetching Tails soon and tell them Sheba is the queen for you!

Pug Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBUR OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Ciao! My name is Romo, and I am a super handsome, super sweet little fellow who is looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation! Could that be with you? I am a 5-year-old chihuahua/pug mix, and at 15 pounds I am the perfect size to snuggle up next to you for long cuddle sessions. I must say, I am quite the looker: I have lovely light tan fur, and my silly little underbite will keep you laughing every time I smile! My friends from Fetching Tails saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where my previous ... (Read More)owners brought me when they could no longer take care of me. I am a happy-go-lucky guy and am loving all the attention I get in my foster home! I love attention and affection, and am happiest with my favorite people by my side. I have a well-balanced energy level and enjoy both playtime (I love a good game of fetch!) and snuggle time. But my most favorite activity in the world is going for a nice long walk with foster mommy so I can explore the world and leave my mark on every tree and fire hydrant! I get along with other pups, though I prefer little doggies like me, and I even currently live with kitty cats. I am very curious about them, but we mostly get along. My favorite roommates, though, are the human kiddos in the house. I would choose to hang out with them over anyone else! I just love being around them so much, so I would do great in a forever home with children. I have pretty good house manners, too, and am learning more all the time! I am crate trained and potty trained. I know to do my business outside, but I might occasionally try to mark inside. When I try it, my foster parents redirect my attention; with continued practice and patience in my forever home, I will get over this little habit! I am comfortable resting in my crate while my foster family is at work, but would prefer for someone to be home more often than not because I just love attention so much and am much happier being by your side! I will even tap you on the arm with my paw if it is time for a petting break. Isn't that adorable? If you think I could be the cute, loyal, loving dude for you, please get in touch with my Fetching Tails friends soon so we can start our happily ever after together!

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Bon jour! My name is Juliet and if you are looking for a lifetime of love and joy with a furry friend, I am the beautiful girl who will keep a big smile on your face every day! I am a 1-year-old pittie princess, and am 55-pounds of fun and devotion! It is your day to feel #blessed because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I must say, I am a simply stunning lady: I have gorgeous hazelnut-colored fur; in a case of win-win for us both you will love to pet me because my hair is so soft and I simply adore ... (Read More)getting a good massage! But my best feature by far is my giant smile that spreads from ear to ear. I am a happy-go-lucky girl and wear my bright personality on my face at all times! I was rescued from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where I was brought after being found as a stray. I waited patiently for someone to notice me, and my Fetching friends fell in love immediately when they were at the shelter looking for doggies to save! I am having so much fun now that I am safe with my rescue, and love to soak up all the attention I get from all my new friends! I have an infectious, bubbly personality and make everyone around me smile when I pull out my my favorite stuffie toys or tennis balls. Just try to resist my charms when I approach you with my head tilted to the side and a ball hanging out of my mouth; just kidding, it is impossible! I also enjoy going for walks and rolling over for belly rubs. I get along great with other dogs and would do well with a canine BFF who is active and will like my silliness when I am in full play mode. I am working very hard on my house manners so I can be the best version of myself possible, too! I am crate trained and working on mastering potty training; with a consistent schedule and a little patience I will be a potty pro in no time! Fetching Tails encourages all adopters to sign their new pups up for training classes; I am a very smart girlie and a total people pleaser so I think we would have a great time together in class learning all those neat tricks and commands I see my friends do and bonding with each other, as well. Doesn't that sound like so much fun? If something sounds fun, I am definitely there for it! So, what are you waiting for? Hurry up and fill out that adoption application so we can start our fun, happy, loving life together! I can't wait to make you smile as wide as I do!

Rescue Me ID: 18-02-16-00383Annaleise (female)

Chesapeake Bay Retriever Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi there! My name is Annaleise, and I am a soulful senior lady who is looking for a special family to give me the life I have always dreamed of. I am an 8-year-old Chesapeake Bay retriever mix, and have gorgeous chocolate brown fur. I currently weigh in at about 40 pounds, but could stand to gain a few more pounds to be at my ideal weight. I am a humble girl, but I must say my beautiful amber-colored eyes are my best feature and just show my loving personality so well! My friends from Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from ... (Read More)Chicago Animal Care and Control, where I was brought as a stray. I haven't had the easiest life and spent most of my time outside, but am learning how nice it is to have a safe, comfortable home thanks to my loving foster parents. When I think of my forever home, I dream about patient, kind people who will let me relax on a comfy bed and enjoy watching the TV to my heart's content. I am a major couch potato, and nothing makes me happier than laying back to watch my favorite shows including Game of Thrones, anything on the Investigation Discovery channel, and especially the Planet Earth documentaries! I am shy with new people so I would prefer a quieter adult-only home without much activity, but once I take some time to know you are my friend I am very sweet and love to lounge near my people as much as possible. I would do best in a home where people are home most of the day and would prefer to be your only furry friend, so maybe if you are retired or work from home we could be best mates! Once I know you, I even give the sweetest kisses as a thanks for taking such good care of me! I have some pretty great manners, and am learning more every day thanks to my fosters' tender care. I am very polite and don't get on furniture unless I am invited. Since I spent so much of my life outside, I am still mastering potty training but am getting pretty good at letting my foster momma know when I need to go out and take a tinkle. I have hyperthyroidism and recently started medications for the condition (which I will need the rest of my life), and I think once the medication levels balance out I will have less frequent potty accidents as well! I would do best with a fenced yard and for my humans to accompany me outside when I do my business; I don't want to feel abandoned outside ever again like in my past life and feel better when I know you are near! I might be shy and tender, but I am also a very loving and lovable girl once I settle into a routine and know my people will be there for me. If you think you could be the amazing, big-hearted humans to finally give me the happily ever after I have never known, please reach out to my friends at Fetching Tails soon. After all this time, I just can't wait to start my real forever with you!

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi friends! My name is Lynda, and if you are looking for a large, laid-back lady friend to spend your days with, I am the beauty for you! I am a 7-year-old Lab/Pyrenees mix, and when I say I am a big beauty, I mean it since I weigh in at a hearty 101 pounds! I have luxurious black fur with a darling white spot on my chest near my heart, which is appropriate since I have so much love to give the lucky people who choose to make me a part of their family! My friends from Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care & ... (Read More)Control, where my previous owner left me when they no longer wanted me. If I am being honest, I am pretty happy they did so I can have a new start and a real happily ever after! You see, my previous owner kept me outside or in the garage most of the time, so now that I am with Fetching Tails I am experiencing love and affection in a home for the first time in a long while. And I just LOVE soaking up all the attention I can! I am a pretty calm, lazy girl and nothing makes me happier than leaning into my favorite person to receive pets. I think I would do best as your one and only fur friend so I can get all your attention all for myself. When I dream of my forever home, I envision a calm home where I can enjoy your company and chill on a comfy, cozy dog bed near you! I have some pretty good house manners, as well. I am potty trained, and can settle down and relax in my dog bed while my humans are away from home. I do not like being crated, but know not to make a mess in the house or chew on things I shouldn't, though sometimes I like to gently carry a shoe around when I am feeling silly! I would prefer a home with a tall privacy fence or a person without a yard who will take me for long walks for exercise because I am very good at climbing chain-link fences and it would be safest for all of us if I didn't have that temptation! Fetching Tails encourages all adopters to sign up for training classes with their new pups, and I think it could be a good opportunity for us to bond and learn a lot together! I know a couple commands already, including sit and give paw; I will even give paw without prompting just because I love to reach out and touch you! If you think I could be the extra large lovebug that will fill your home with affection, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them Lynda is the lady for you!

Rescue Me ID: 17-11-29-00398Hermes (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Health: 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 Hermes, and I am an extra special young dude who is looking for a superstar family with whom to enjoy life's adventures! I am a 5-month-old shepherd/Carolina dog mix, and I am a super handsome little fella, if I could be so bold! I currently weigh in at about 30 pounds but have a little more growing to do. I think I will be a medium-sized doggie when full grown, maybe weighing in around 40-50 pounds. I have super soft blond fur with a distinguished black muzzle on my face. My ears that stand at attention are ... (Read More)pretty cute, too, right? They really help me hear how often you tell me you love me! I came to Fetching Tails Foundation all the way from Mississippi. My siblings and I were rescued from under an abandoned mobile home by the nice ladies from the Tunica Humane Society, and we got to make the trip to Chicagoland for a better chance at finding loving homes. I have had the best time learning and growing in my foster home! I have a big canine sister, FTF alumnus Dutchie, who shows me the ropes about how to enjoy the life of luxury in a loving home. I get along with doggies of all sizes; I am a submissive pup that takes cues very well from my canine friends and respects their boundaries! I think it would be so fun to have a doggie BFF in my forever home; I even love to snuggle with Dutchie and sleep with her on her doggie bed at night. For a puppy, I am also pretty chill: I enjoy playing tug of war and chewing on appropriate toys and chews (my favorite chew is an elk antler...I hope my forever home has an unlimited supply!), but am also very content to snuggle up with foster momma on the couch while we watch our favorite shows on the TV. I might seem a little shy at first, but once I know you I am very happy to see you and am all tail wags and smiles. I make all my favorite people laugh with my signature greeting: if you get down low I will run to you with a wiggly butt, head tilt, and silly smile! I would be a great addition to any family and would be good with kids, too. Did I mention yet how well-behaved I am? I am super smart and know what go to bed/my crate means and will do so with minimal fussing (by minimal fussing I mean I lay down and relax for a nap right away!) I also know how to sit on command already, too! Since I am a puppy, I am still working on perfecting potty training; I will need continued guidance to do my business outside but currently use potty pads and know to go on them so I don't have any accidents in the house. My foster mommy works from home so I am not currently left alone very long, but when she is gone I do fine resting comfortably in my crate. Fetching Tails Foundation requires all adopters of puppies to sign us up for training classes so we continue to learn while we grow, and I am such a scholar that I just can't wait to see how many more tricks and commands we can master together! Now, I do need to tell you about some of my special needs. I have a condition that is called megaesophagus, which is a congenital condition where the esophagus remains enlarged instead of contracting and prevents food from passing through the esophagus into the stomach. I know, I know, that sounds a little scary, but believe me when I say it is not a fatal condition and with proper care and attention I will live a long, happy life! I am on a medication that I will likely need for the rest of my life, and I enjoy eating three meals a day in my special upright position to help food move down my esophagus into my belly. Remember when I said I am very smart? I learned how and where to stand to eat very fast and am now always ready and waiting when foster mommy gets my food ready! I am a pretty extraordinary, happy-go-lucky guy who would make any family lucky enough to adopt me smile every day with my sweetness and playfulness.

Rescue Me ID: 17-11-13-00647Jody (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi friends! My name is Jody and I am a smart, sassy pretty lady who is looking for a lifetime of love and fun! I am a 2-year-old, 30-pound pittie princess who is available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I have gorgeous fur that is as white as snow, but my unique face really highlights my personality! My brindle-colored spot on my face brings attention to my eyes filled with devotion. I am always getting compliments on my big, silly ears! And can we talk about my heart-shaped nose? That pretty much sums me up: I ... (Read More)wear my heart on my sleeve, err, face! Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where I was brought in as a stray. I much prefer the rescue life to living on the streets, let me tell you! I love hanging out in the fenced yard where I can sniff and play my favorite game called zoomies (foster mommy says I could be an Olympic-level sprinter!) I love to zoom and could chase a ball all day if you are into playing fetch. I am also a HUGE fan of long walks, and would even be a good running buddy if you need a partner to keep you motivated...I am happy to go at whatever pace you prefer. I am a great coach, as my happy tails just keeps wagging the whole time! But my favorite activity in the whole, wide world is playing with toys. And by playing, I mean seeing how fast I can chew them apart! Foster mommy says I am proving to be an excellent quality tester of so-called indestructible toys, but I love that she always has more toys waiting for me. I hope my adopter will continue to enable my toy habit! But I am not an overly energetic girl: when playtime is over, nothing makes me happier than curling up on your lap or under your arm for a snuggle while we relax on the couch. I definitely excel at enjoying that lounging lifestyle, too! I am a special girl who is looking for a very special home. I can be shy with new people, so I would love a calm, quiet home with a devoted, savvy dog person to call my own. I would do best in a childless home as the little humans spook me. Other than my shyness, I am a very well-behaved girl with great manners! I have attended training classes to work on my confidence and know so many commands including sit, watch, down, and leave it. I am potty and crate trained, too. I love to learn (especially when I get my favorite snacks such as apples, bananas or carrots as a reward!), and FTF will require my adopter to continue lessons with my trainer (and good pal!) so I can adjust well to your home. I think it will be fun to show my forever person everything I have learned so far and continue to learn and bond with them so we can have the best life together! I am looking for that one special person who wants my delightful company, will enjoy training classes with me, and who will enjoy a nice walk then cuddle session afterwards. If you think you could give me the home I have always dreamed about, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon! I just can't wait to start our fairy 'tail' happily ever after together! Love, Jody ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS, NO EXCEPTIONS: *ADOPTION FEE: $250 *Be at least 21 years of age *Live in a 50-mile radius of Itasca, within the Illinois border *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 (please provide proof of address if ID address is not up-to-date) *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment *TRAINING IS REQUIRED!

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-17-00019Tuffy (male)

Norfolk Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi there! My name is Tuffy and if a fun, playful little dude sounds like your dream dog, you could hit the jackpot with me! I am a 2-year-old, 30-pound scruffy terrier mix, and I would love a lifetime of adventures and play with the special family who will call me their own. I have billowy, snow white hair, and a happy smile that will knock you off your feet! I am a happy, active boy and will keep you entertained, for sure! My friends at Fetching Tails saved me after I was found as a stray and brought to Chicago Animal Care & ... (Read More)Control. I was so happy to bust out of the shelter and know I was safe! I am a bit of an attention hog and love to receive affection from my humans now! I am an active fellow so I would love a fenced yard at my forever home where I can play ball and burn all my fun energy. When I am out of gas in the tank, I love to cuddle and receive pets from my people. Because of my play style, I would do best in a home with active adults; if you have kiddos, I would prefer them to be older (10+). I would also like to be your one-and-only canine companion; I like to think I am the king of the castle and don't like to share your attention with other four-legged buddies. I have such a big personality and so much love to give that we don't need any other furry friends, anyway! I am a very smart dog and learning more all the time. I have good house manners and am potty and crate trained (though I will bark when I first go in my crate because I would prefer to be out playing with you!) I have also been working on learning commands and manners with FTFs partner trainer so I can be the best version of myself possible. Since I am so smart but have more to learn, FTF will require my adopters to sign me up for training classes, which I am excited about! I love showing off how studious I am, and it will be a great bonding experience for us. More than anything, I want a fun-loving, active family who will give me all the love, attention, and playtime I never had in my previous life. Do you think that could be with you? Then please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails...I want to start our happily ever after together as soon as possible! Love, Tuffy If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-11-00319Maybeline (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Ever hear the slogan: Maybe she's born with it, maybe it's Maybeline? Hi, I am Maybeline! And I was definitely born with a sweet, tender, sensitive soul and the looks of a supermodel! I am a five-month-old mixed-breed puppy (my momma looked like a lab/shepherd mix) who is looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. I currently weigh in at 23 pounds, though I still have some growing to do. And my gorgeous chocolate and licorice-colored brindle pattern isn't a fancy make-up job: I am naturally this beautiful! ... (Read More)Best of all: my loving personality outshines even my stunning good looks! I came to Chicagoland and Fetching Tails Foundation with my littermates from the Tunica Humane Society in Mississippi. Our momma Maria is a well-known stray dog who my friends at the THS have been trying to save from the streets for a couple years. She just won't let the lovely ladies catch her, but always lets her human angels know when she has had a litter and led them to my siblings and me. When my foster momma saw our pictures, she jumped at the chance to help us find forever homes so we made the big journey north when we were old enough! I have really blossomed since joining my foster family; I am more shy than my siblings, but am coming out of my shell a lot thanks to love of my foster parents and the other doggies in their home. My littermates have outgoing personalities, and encourage me to enjoy the world with them. I would love to have a friendly, outgoing dog in my forever home who will continue to nurture me and help me find my confidence. I just relax and am happier when I have a canine companion to follow. I also really love to play with my doggie BFFs; nothing makes me happier than playing chase in the yard with my littermates or the older resident dogs in my foster home, so I would also love to have a fenced yard at my forever home when I can romp and zoom around to my heart's content! I can be a little shy when meeting new people, so I think a calm home with older kids if you have children would be a better fit for me. It takes me a little bit to loosen up when I meet new people, but once I know you are loving and kind, I am the most affectionate little lady who loves to dole out sweet kisses while I receive tender pets! I have pretty wonderful house manners for a young pup, and am learning more all the time! I am working on mastering potty training; I just need consistent reminders and positive reinforcement to get me all the way to 100 percent, and should be there in no time once I learn the routine and schedule of my forever home. I am also crate trained, and do well in my little doggie den while my foster mommy goes to work or runs errands for 3-4 hours at a time. Fetching Tails Foundation requires adopters of young puppies to sign us up for training so we can learn how to be the best version of ourselves, and I think training classes will really help me continue to gain confidence while I learn all the fun tricks and commands I see my older doggie friends doing. More than anything, I just want a loving, patient family who will love me completely and show me that the world we build together is happy and safe. If you think you could be the special person to love me and never let me go, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them beautiful Maybelline is the little lady for you! Puppy kisses and cuddles, Maybeline Please read all adoption requirements and adoption fee's below! *TRAINING IS REQUIRED! THE PUPPY MUST BE SIGNED UP FOR TRAINING AFTER 14 DAYS OF THE ADOPTION!

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-24-00400Nora (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hello! My name is Nora, and I am a beautiful 3-year-old 'pittie' princess who is looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. If I could be a little vain for a second, I just have to point out that I really am a gorgeous lady: I have striking silver and white fur, and I look like I am wearing socks on my feet because of my white paws! My big floppy Minnie Mouse ears perfectly highlight my soulful, loving hazel eyes. I weigh about 50 pounds, and I am a full-grown beauty. My friends from Fetching Tails saved me ... (Read More)through the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention and Support Program they co-founded at Chicago Animal Care and Control. My former owner could no longer keep me because of landlord issues, but thankfully CRISP volunteers were at animal control that day and I got to go home with a loving foster mommy instead of going inside the busy, loud shelter. I am a shy girl, so CACC would have been really scary for me. Instead, I am adjusting to home life with my awesome foster family and I get a second shot at a new life! I was very shy at first, but my foster parents are making everything a fun, positive learning experience for me and I am a confident girl now! I love it when they talk to me and let me know that my life is going to be amazing from now on. I would do well with forever humans who are experienced dog owners, and can continue to work with me on all the fun tricks and commands I have learned. I am a very smart girl and I respond well to positive reinforcement (especially if I get tasty treats as a reward!) when working on my manners and commands. I get to take training classes with my foster parents, and believe me when I say it is my favorite day of the week! It is so much fun to be the smartest girl in class! I have learned commands including sit, stay, lay down, look, touch, swing, and to sit calmly when new friends greet me. I also have good house manners, too. I am potty trained, crate trained, and I do well on walks. Don't I just sound like an amazing catch?! Not only am I a scholar, but I also know how to have a good time. I LOVE going for my walkies with my foster mommy, daddy, and canine brother. We take long, leisurely strolls through the neighborhood and I get to see and smell all the amazing wonders of the world. I also enjoy playtime with my doggie brother. I get along with other dogs with a slow introduction, so if you have a canine friend we can meet up for a doggie date and see if our energy levels are compatible. And not to humble-brag, but I am also cat-friendly, too! Some of my favorite activities include playing zoomies so it would be fun to have a fenced yard in which to run and romp, and I love to cuddle in front of the TV with my family when we are all done playing. I hope my piggy snores don't bug you too much, I get so relaxed and comfortable that I just can't help but fall asleep while snuggling! And did I mention yet how much I love to eat? I have learned so much so fast because I am very treat motivated and will do anything to please my people in exchange for a tasty snack! I am loving and kind, and all I want more than anything in the world is a family who will love me let me be the confident, happy-go-lucky doll I am meant to be! If you treat me with patience and kindness, I will repay you with endless tail wags and pittie kisses! If you think I could be the girl for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and let them know Nora sent you! I can't wait to start our forever together! XOXOX, Nora If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!
