Rescue Me ID: 17-11-14-00018Luckie (male)

Dachshund 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!* Hello future family! My name is Luckie, and to the loving people who choose to make me a part of your family, you really will feel like the luckiest humans alive to share your home and heart with sweet and wonderful me! I am 7 months old, and I am what my friends jokingly refer to as a chiweenie, which means I am a dachshund/chihuahua mix. I have stunningly handsome good looks with my reddish-brown fur, and my cute button nose and eyes are even the same color! But for as cute as I am, my personality is what really makes me a ... (Read More)special little pup! I weigh in at about 8 pounds, so I am the perfect size to snuggle up in your lap for lots of sweet cuddle sessions. Fetching Tails Foundation saved me and my momma Nessa from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where our previous owner left us behind when they were moving out of state and couldn't take us with them. But thankfully our friends from FTF were at the shelter that day and we got to go go to loving foster families instead; I am so happy in my foster home and am ecstatic to have a second chance to find a true forever family! I am the happiest little guy you will ever meet, and love everyone of all ages that I have met. My foster mommy says I am the total package: I am playful and enjoy bursts of running around (especially in my foster mommy's fenced yard: like so many doxies I love to explore and sniff out fun scents!), but I am also equally as content to curl up on the couch with you for some tv and snuggle time. I am happiest when I am around my favorite people, and pretty much everyone fits in the category of my favorite people! I also get along great with other dogs: I immediately think every pup I meet is my new BFF. I love to dole out sweet kisses and make everyone, human and canine, smile! Remember when I said I am the total package? It is so true! I even have really great manners for such a young fellow. I am crate trained (though I will bark a bit when my foster mommy first leaves for work because I would rather be following her around to see what fun we can get into!), and I am almost 100 percent fully potty trained (I have learned the potty-break routine in my foster home and I haven't had any more accidents there, so I just need a bit of time and patience while I figure out the schedule in my new home!) My entire goal in life is to make my people happy, and I am attentive to directions my humans give me; foster mommy says I am a good boy because I always come when she calls my name. What can I say? I am a happy boy who loves to spread my joy to everyone around me! If you think I sound like the fun, cuddly, super sweet little dude for you, please get in touch with my friends from Fetching Tails soon and tell them you would be lucky to adopt Luckie! Kisses, snuggles, and love, Luckie 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 If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org; please make sure you fill in every required field/question or your submission will not go through.

Rescue Me ID: 17-11-13-00665Memphis (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* Howdy, friends! My name is Memphis and I am a super special, handsome fella who is looking for a special home to call my own! I am an 8-month-old mixed breed pup (my momma looks like a lab/shepherd mix, but my daddy is a mystery!) who is available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. Does breed really matter anyway when I am this cute and the biggest love bug? I think not! I currently weigh in at about 40 pounds and I have luxurious raven-black fur and a big, silly face with floppy ears that stick out because I love to hear you tell me you love me. And how ... (Read More)about my love-filled chocolate brown eyes? I know looks aren't important, but you can't deny I am a total stud-muffin! My sweet, snuggly personality shines through all my stunning good looks! I came to 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 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 had a litter and led them to my siblings and me. We were hiding out under an abandoned house, and were very happy when we were told we would get to make our way to Chicagoland to find loving forever homes! And let me tell you, I am so lucky to have crossed paths with my loving foster family: remember when I said I am an extra special boy? I have diabetes, so I require special care to keep me healthy. My foster parents give me insulin injections and monitor my blood glucose levels so I can continue to be the peppy, fun-loving boy I am meant to be. And I love to have fun: I enjoy play sessions with my doggie friends in the yard (I would love to have playful doggie friends and a fenced yard at my forever home!), and lots of sweet cuddle sessions with my humans. I also enjoy going for walks to the park so I can get my sniff on and explore the big, fun world; walks two-three hours after a meal help me with my insulin levels, too, so on top of being lots of fun it helps me feel better! I think my ideal home would be with a family where someone is home often to take care of my medical needs and can devote lots of loving attention to me. My foster mommy will be happy to explain in detail my insulin and feeding schedule so I can stay as healthy and happy as possible! I have excellent manners for a young dog, as well. I am potty trained and crate trained; because of my diabetes I have to go pee-pee often so I do have an occasional accident if I have to wait too long to go outside, but I know I am supposed to do my business outdoors and try my hardest to stick to that! I also know a couple commands including sit, and would love to learn more because I am definitely a people pleaser! Since I am a young guy, Fetching Tails will require my adopters to sign me up for training classes, and I can't wait to prove that I am quite the scholar! I think it will be loads of fun for both of us, and I am all about fun! If you think you could be the special family to provide this sweet, fun, lovebug the forever home I have been dreaming about, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon and tell them Memphis is the handsome guy for you! As much as I love my foster family, I can't wait for my happily ever after with you!

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 1.5-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, and my silly ears are pretty much always at attention because I love to listen to you tell me what a good girl I am. And can we ... (Read More)talk about my heart-shaped nose? That pretty much sums me up: I 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! My favorite activity is hanging out in the fenced yard where I can sniff and play with my doggie friends! I love to play with other pups, and think a canine playmate in my forever home would be awesome, too! I tend to get along better with other dogs who are submissive since I think I am royalty and like to be the Queen Bee, so let's maybe go on a doggie date and see if our energy levels are compatible! I can be shy with new people and women, so I would love a forever human who is patient and will continue to work with me on my training and social skills so my confidence can keep blossoming. I think given my play style, I would also do best in a home with no young human kiddos. I am a smart girl who is potty and crate trained, and have learned a lot from the trainer who works with Fetching Tails Foundation. I love to learn (especially when I get a yummy treat or two as a reward!), and FTF will require my adopters 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 family everything I have learned so far and continue to learn and bond with them so we can have the best life together! 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!

Rescue Me ID: 17-11-11-00361Nessa (female)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
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 Nessa, and if you have always dreamed of having a cuddly kangaroo as your best friend, well, you are in luck because I am a happy, bouncy little lady who is looking for a forever home with a dance partner to call my own! I am what my friends call a chiweenie, which is a very silly way to say I am a dachshund/chihuahua mix. I am about four years old and weigh in at a svelte 12 pounds, which is the perfect size for lots of snuggles and cuddles on your comfy, cozy lap! I have gorgeous coppery gold hair, a ... (Read More)happy smile on my face, and big antenna ears that stick out sideways so I can hear you tell me what a sweet, lovely girl I am! And did I mention yet that I have a dancer's body? I love to dance and bounce happily so you always know how much I love life! My friends from Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, after my previous owners left me because they could no longer keep me. Thankfully, my foster mommy was at the shelter that day and I got to go home with her instead of staying at the busy shelter. Home life is definitely more my style and I am having the best time with my foster family! I have a kitty cat friend and a big lab friend, and I get along fabulously with both! I would be content in a forever family with or without furry friends because I am definitely most happy when I have a human to snuggle with...nothing makes me happier than curling up on your lap for some Netflix and chill time. I am so friendly with every human I meet, and I previously lived with kids before I was surrendered by my last family. I also love to eat, and will do my happy, bouncy dance to entertain you in exchange for some yummy treats! I am a very well-behaved little princess, too! I am potty trained, though because I am a little girl with a little bladder if I am home alone for more than about 4 hours I might have a little tinkle accident. I would do great with someone who is home often to let me do my potty business and who will love to snuggle for big chunks of the day! When my foster parents are at work, I am very happy to lounge in my favorite doggie bed and rest up so I can greet them with my signature dance when they walk in the door. I also know a couple commands including sit and come. My dream day in my forever home is pretty much wake up and snuggle the day away with my favorite people! If that sounds like your dream day, too, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them Nessa is the perfect little baby girl for you! As much as I enjoy my foster home, I am so excited to start my happily ever after with you as soon as possible! Kisses and cuddles (and more cuddles!), Nessa 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 If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org; please make sure you fill in every required field/question or your submission will not go through.

Lhasa Apso Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Low Energy 
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 Corgan, and I am an extra special dog looking for a special family who will give me a loving forever home. I am an super sweet, low-energy 8-year-old Lhasa Apso mix, and I pack a lot of love into my small 18-pound body. If I could humble brag for a moment, I am quite the looker! All your neighbors will stop and say 'My, what a handsome friend you have there!' when we go for leisurely strolls, and they won't be wrong! I have white fur with cream splashes across my coat. But you were immediately drawn into my ... (Read More)incredible, big button eyes and giant smile, right? They are my best features, I think, because they perfectly show off my loving, kind, and happy-go-lucky personality! My friends from Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where my previous owners surrendered me. I was so happy to leave the busy, overwhelming shelter behind and settle in for some rest and relaxation in my foster home. Since I am a bit older, I am past all the hyper puppy playtime and prefer to find a comfy spot next to my favorite people for a nap. I think I could win an Olympic medal for my napping skills, so if you are looking for a quiet, calm buddy I am definitely the gentleman for you! You might even think my naps are as funny as my foster mommy does, because I lightly snore and stretch my back legs out like a frog. And my favorite activity in the whole wide world is definitely eating my yummy food and treats! I am a foodie, and get so happy when it is snack time. I also enjoy slow, leisurely walkies around the block to get my exercise and do my potty business. I get along well with dogs of all sizes, and even get along with my kitty cat foster siblings! I have excellent house manners and am potty trained (I know to go outside but will also use potty pads if you need to be gone for long hours!) I do fine napping and relaxing while foster mommy is at work. I think I am a pretty perfect quiet roommate! Remember when I said I am an extra special boy? I have a few health issues that I think it is important for my potential adopters to know about. I was in some rough shape before Fetching Tails saved me, but I am getting all the medical care I need now to be happy and healthy! I am deaf, but that doesn't really affect my day-to-day happiness. I also receive medications for my heart and eyes now and am feeling much better because of them! I have a few growths on my back end that my doctor doesn't think should be removed at this time. My foster mommy can fill out in more about my health issues, but I hope you still think I am the sweet, loving boy for you! I have lots of life and love left to share with my special forever family! So if you think you could be the family I have been waiting so long for, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon so we can start our happily ever after together!

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-12-00292Caroline (female)

Lab 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!* Hello there! My name is Caroline, and if you are looking for an active, playful young girl to fill your life with fun and adventures, I am the cutie pie for you! I am a 3-month-old Retriever mix, and I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am a gorgeous girlie, if I could be so bold for a moment! I have luxurious black fur, and my chest is as white as fresh snow. I currently weigh in at about 20 pounds, but I am still a growing girl. My face is extra cute with my pretty white snout and unique white streak ... (Read More)up the middle of my face; I think it perfectly highlights my sweet, loving button eyes, don't you? But best of all? My silly, fun personality shines even brighter than my pretty physique! I had a big journey to Fetching Tails Foundation all the way from Mississippi, where I was found as a stray after some people called the police because they said a big scary dog was on their porch. It was just little old me, hoping for some love and attention from kind humans! Thankfully, the lovely ladies from the Tunica Humane Society rushed over to save me, and asked their good friends from FTF if I could make my way to Chicagoland to have a better chance at finding a loving forever home. And let me tell you, the long ride was worth it because I am having SO much fun in my foster home! I love to play, play, play and I get plenty of time to do so! I have lots of fun puppy energy to work with and my favorite games are tug of war and fetch in the yard; I would love to have a fenced yard at my forever home. I also enjoy romping and rolling with dog buddies, so I think it would be ideal to have an active young dog in my forever home so we can keep each other entertained! I currently live with kitties, too, and want to play with them as well. What can I say? I will play with anyone, anytime! I get along well with kids, too; I can be a bit shy when I meet new humans at first, but I adore kids and open up to them quickly! It might take me a little bit of time to come out of my shell, but once I know someone is my friend I remember them always and am excited for pets and cuddles! Like I said, I just want human kindness, love, and someone with whom to have lots of fun! I am a very smart puppy, and am still learning lots about the wide world around me. I am almost totally potty trained already; when I have a rare accident in the house, it is always right by the door I use to go outside so I know where I am supposed to go! I am also crate trained and sleep well through the night. I do fine resting in my crate while my foster parents are at work; my foster grandma visits every day around lunchtime so I can have a potty break and some playtime, which is really nice! It is safest for me to be in what I like to call my little doggie den while my humans aren't home because I am still in that chewy puppy stage and am learning what is an appropriate toy and what isn't. Since I am so young, Fetching Tails will require my adopters to sign me up for training classes, which I think sounds like SO much fun! I know I am a smarty-pants, and can't wait to prove it by learning all those neat tricks and commands other dogs know and so I can be the best version of myself possible! More than anything, I want an active family who loves me and I can make smile every day! If I sound like I could be your perfect puppy princess, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them sweet Caroline is the one for you! I can't wait to start our fun adventure together! Puppy kisses and cuddles, Caroline ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS, NO EXCEPTIONS: *ADOPTION FEE: $350 *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: 17-08-29-00593Little Chief (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier 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! My name is Little Chief, and I am a young dog with a bright, loving personality who is looking for a forever family through Fetching Tails Foundation! If you are looking for a cuddly companion who will shower you with kisses for many years to come, I am the perfect friend for you! I am a 1-year-old 'pittie' mix, and I currently weigh in at around 45 pounds. I think I am the perfect size to keep your lap nice and warm during our snuggle sessions! I have a stunning reddish-brown coat and a smile that goes on for days and ... (Read More)days; I even smile when I sleep! My human friends saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where I was brought with a broken arm. Now that I am all healed up, I am ready for my happily ever after now! I I would love to have a forever home with a fenced yard and human who will buy me lots of fun toys and treats because toys and marrow bones are my favorite possessions in the whole wide world! I make foster mommy laugh because I like to take my tasty marrow bone with me when I go outside to go potty and will hold it in my mouth while I 'do my business.' I also have two canine foster sisters who are big Labs and I love to play with them: I am so happy to see them that I do this adorable pouncy dance and hop to where they are so I can jump on them and we can play! When playtime is over, nothing - and I mean NOTHING - makes me happier than cuddling with my humans as much as possible. I might be a little shy when I meet new people, but once I know and love you, I am your cuddle buddy for life. You name the place, I will be there to join you: Wanna cuddle in bed? I'm there! How 'bout some couch time so we can watch Netflix and chill? I am so game! I just love to curl up with my people everywhere and anywhere so I can give you a sweet kiss and snuggle in as close as possible. So if you are looking for a happy, fun dog who likes to lounge as much as he likes to play, I am the total package! For a young guy, I have great manners, too. I don't mean to brag, but I am already potty trained and crate trained, too. My foster mommy works during the day, and I am fine resting on my own while she is off making money to buy me more treats. She comes home to see me at lunch and take me out for a potty break because, let's be honest, who wouldn't want any excuse to come home and hang out with handsome me for a bit? I am a very smart boy and would love to see how much more I could learn. Fetching Tails Foundation will require my adopters to sign me up for training classes, and I think that will be a great opportunity for me to work on my shyness so I can be the confident dog I know I am meant to be! I hear my doggie friends say how much fun training is and what a great bonding experience it is for a new dog and their human. Plus I want to learn as many tricks and commands as I can so I can be the best Little Chief possible! What are you waiting for? If I sound like I could be the perfect companion for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon and tell them you are ready for fun with Little Chief! I can't wait to see what adventures life has planned for us together!

Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Wanted: a fun-loving, adventure-seeking family ready for a lifetime of exploration! Hi there! My name is Timberline and I am an 8-month-old Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who is looking for a forever family through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am a spirited, curious, and intelligent young fellow. I am about 50 pounds and have luxuriously soft toffee-colored fur; I am also dressed to party as I have a white patch on my chest so it looks like I am wearing a tuxedo and white cuffs on my paws! If I could humble brag for a moment, I am a ... (Read More)very handsome boy and my personality perfectly matches my giant, sparkling smile! My friends at Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where I was brought by my previous owners because I was very sick. I was so sick with parvovirus, in fact, that I was moments from being euthanized. But thankfully my Fetching friends rushed to my rescue as soon as they heard about me and after spending a few days at the animal hospital receiving fluids and medicine, I am now fully recovered and a healthy, happy boy who loves life in my foster home! I live with two other playful dogs and two kitties and I get along great with all of them! I have started to learn boundaries thanks to them (like when my doggie foster brother Rizzo is tired of playing, I know to give him space and find somewhere else to play!) and l love to play zoomies with my doggie sister Gracie! I love to play zoomies so much, in fact, that I would love to have a fenced yard at my forever home so I can run around to my heart's content! Since I am young I have a lot of playful energy to work with, but once I have tired myself out nothing makes me happier than some serious cuddle time on the couch! I LOVE to snuggle, and lay right next you with my head on your lap. I am very friendly and get along well with everyone I meet! What can I say? I just love life so much and I even enjoy to go on fun adventures with my foster family, like swimming in the lake by their house; if you are an active family I think we could get along very well! For a young guy I have pretty great house manners, too! I am potty trained and crate trained; I like to keep some toys in my crate and treat it like my own personal man cave. My foster parents have been working with me on commands including sit and wait. Since I am young, my excitement can get the best of me sometimes and I like to jump to say hello; I am a quick learner and will understand in no time what is the most polite way to meet new friends. Since I am young, Fetching Tails Foundation will require my adopters to sign me up for training classes to ensure I learn all the tools to be the best version of myself possible. If I am being totally honest, I am SUPER excited by this idea: I love to learn new tricks and commands, and I hear I might get to make new doggie friends in classes! I am a people pleaser, and cannot wait to show you how smart I am. More than anything, I am excited to find a family who is ready for a lifetime of fun, cuddles, and love! If you think I could be the playful, happy-go-lucky guy for you, please reach out to my friends at Fetching Tails soon! I can't wait to start our exciting adventure together!

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!

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!

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-26-00203Steinbeck (male)

Beagle Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Aaaaa-woooo! That is beagle-speak for HELLO! My name is Steinbeck and I am a 6-year-old beagle/basset mix. If you are looking for a devoted, loveable, funny companion, it is your lucky day because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am a super handsome tri-color (white, tan, black) fellow, and like the stories by the author after whom I am named, I am loaded with heartwarming character: I am goofy, loving, entertaining, and if you give me the forever home I long for, I will never leave your side! ... (Read More)My Fetching Tails friends saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where my previous owner left me when they could no longer take care of me. I needed quite a bit of TLC when my foster mom brought me home; I was very overweight and had a fully ruptured ACL in one of my hind legs; my other ACL later ruptured as well because of the long-time strain of being obese. I ended up needing surgeries to repair the ligaments in both of my hind legs, and thanks to lots of TLC from my foster family, I have lost about 20 pounds (I weigh about 35 pounds now, which is a pretty healthy weight for me and I shouldn't get heavier than that again!) It has been quite a long journey to recover from my surgeries with lots of bed rest and rehabilitative exercises, but I am getting around much better now and I feel like a new dog who is ready to continue on my life adventure to find my forever family! I am a happy-go-lucky guy, and like many hounds, I love to spend time in the great outdoors sniffing all the lovely smells. I would love a fenced yard at my forever home so I can enjoy exploring and sunbathing. I also get along well with other dogs; I have a beagle, a doxie, and a small 'mystery mix' as my BFFs at my foster home. I am playful, but have had to sit back and watch them run around while my leg heals; thankfully they also like long cuddle sessions so we have had a good time sharing my doggie bed. I would prefer a forever home with another dog or two so we can be buddies and keep each other company when our people leave the house. I think I would do best with older kids (10+), and I would also do best in a forever home without cats. More than anything, I would love for my humans to be home more often than not because I simply love being around my people. It makes me so happy to lay near you, receiving belly rubs and head massages. My foster family tells me I am a well-behaved boy, as well. I am potty trained, and don't chew things I'm not supposed to in the house. I have a couple favorite toys I enjoy, and if you have to go out to run errands, I will settle down on my dog bed and wait for you to return. I do think I would do best in a single-family home instead of a townhouse or condo; I am what my foster mommy calls a 'storyteller' and I like to beagle bark to tell you all about my day, so it would be a good idea if we didn't share a wall with a neighbor who might not like my talking skills. I also need a forever home without stairs; I do fine with the one step to go outside at my foster home, but a full flight would be a challenge for me and I would be happiest if I didn't have to deal with all that! My fosters can fill you in with more details about my progress and how to make sure my legs continue healing properly! Like most beagles and bassets, I have a stubborn streak but am am also very smart; I know a few commands including sit and go to bed. I am treat motivated and think we could have some fun at training classes to see how much more I could learn! If you are looking for a dog who will be happy to be by your side through all of life's adventures, I am the handsome, attentive, LOVING boy for you! If you would like to arrange a meet-and-greet with me, please fill out an application and get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon! As much as I love my foster home, I am ready to start my 'happily ever after' story with my forever family!
