Rescue Me ID: 16-09-16-00008Soffie (female)

Beagle 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* Here ye, Here ye! If you are looking for a princess who will spoil you with love as much as you spoil me with attention and affection, I am Soffie, a 6-year-old beagle mix looking for a forever 'Royal Family' to call my own with help from my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation. I have the traditionally regal 'tri-color' beagle markings of black, white, and tan fur, and I am a slim and trim 22 pounds. My legs are a little longer than a full-blooded beagle, and I have a uniquely adorable face (doesn't my black 'eyeliner' perfectly ... (Read More)highlight my beautiful eyes?!) so you could consider me a one-of-a-kind stunner! Best of all, I have a bright, fun personality to match my cute looks. My previous owner sadly passed away and I was brought to the shelter in southern Illinois from which I was originally adopted as a puppy. After waiting patiently for a few weeks with no adoption interest, Fetching Tails scooped in to save me and promised to find me a new loving forever home. My foster mommy can tell I was well-taken care of by my previous owner, and that I was definitely a spoiled girl! I adore people, and should probably run my own kissing booth because I love to dole out them out generously. I am very happy when I get to sit on the couch next to my humans, and settle down nicely after a quick cuddle session. I think I would do best with older kids (my human foster brother is a teenager and I love him) because I do get a little nervous when people move to fast or surprise me. I think active young kiddos might be too much excitement for me! I also think I would be pretty happy to be your one and only canine companion: I am used to being the queen of the house and like all your attention for myself. I was my previous owner's only pet so I don't really know how to coexist with another dog; it took some time for me to adjust to cohabitating with my doggie foster brother Slugger, and I still don't really like to share my toys with him. So with slow introductions and a calm personality, I could live with another dog, but I also would be very happy as your only regal beagle! And what a great doggie buddy I would be for my lucky forever humans! I am already potty and crate trained; I have my own bedroom in which to hang out at my foster home when the humans run errands, and I keep my space neat and tidy. I love to follow foster momma around the house, so I would be happy with humans who are home more often than not, but when you do have to leave me home I just settle down in my blankets with my favorite toys. If you are looking for a good workout buddy, I love going for long walks (and sprints when I see a squirrel!) I also love to play with my humans, and if you have a fenced yard I think we could have so much fun together running around! I still have more to learn (like every dog, there is always a new trick to master!) and Fetching Tails likes to encourage all adopters to take a few training classes with their new doggie. Foster mommy is helping me work on basic commands like 'sit,' 'stay,' and 'off,' and I think we could really master those in a basics training class. I am inquisitive and smart so I am sure I would get them 'down' perfectly in no time! And I also put my inquisitive nature to good use: I helped foster mommy find a piece of a dinner roll that was stuck in a chair! I'm so helpful and just aim to please, even if that means not giving up until I help clean up every crumb! If I sound like I could be the perfect princess to complete your royal family, please get in touch with Fetching Tails soon and let them know you are ready for your 'happily ever after' with Soffie! XOXO, Soffie 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 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-15-00283Wendy (female)

Anatolian Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

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

    *MUST LIVE WITHIN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi! Are you looking for a well-mannered, playful but gentle, happy-go-lucky friend to call your new companion? My name is Wendy and I am the whole package! Sweet, friendly, easy-going, loving, the list goes on and on! And lucky for you I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am an 8-year-old beautiful Shepherd mix; don't let that number fool you, though, because I definitely don't act like a senior. I have a lot of pep in my step and a lifetime of love to give the special family who chooses to give me ... (Read More)my forever home! My foster momma saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control. Can you believe this: my former owners dumped me there because I wasn't a good guard dog and wouldn't bite people! I am one of the most loving dogs you will ever meet, why on earth would I want to bite people?! I spent all of my time either in the basement or yard at my last residence, so I am soaking up all the attention and affection I can get now that foster mom has promised me the good life from now on. I have wonderful house manners: I am potty trained, and am so relaxed on my comfy, cozy dog bed that I don't make a mess of things when you have to leave the house for work or errands so I don't need to be crated. I also don't jump up on furniture; even though foster momma encourages me to sit on the couch with her while we watch TV, I politely decline because I am so happy to have a bed of my own near her feet. I love to be pet and get a good back scratch, but I'm not a climb-on-your-lap cuddler. If I feel like it's been a while since I received a good back massage, I will raise my paw like a human kiddo raising her hand in class to ask you to pet me. Isn't that super cute and so polite? Sweet as sugar, that's me! Remember how I said I have a lot of pep in my step? I love going on walks, so I hope my forever family will enjoy strolling around the neighborhood with me. It is so fun to explore and say hi to all our friends in the neighborhood. I am a very friendly girl; I get along with other dogs and like all the humans I have met so far. I am just so happy to finally feel real love and kindness from people that I like to share that feeling with everyone I meet! Other than being excited to go on walks, I am pretty laid-back. I'm not really interested in playing with toys; I do like the occasional sniff around foster momma's big fenced in backyard. I'm so easygoing that I think I would do well in any type of home: if you are quiet and chill I can happily relax with you, and if you are active and like to be outdoorsy I can be your companion to keep you company on adventures! I love car rides, so I would be happy to go with you to explore the world! I have waited so long for a family to love me and treat me the way all dogs deserve. If you think I could be the perfect friend for you, please get in touch with my foster momma as soon as possible! I just can't wait to start my happily ever after! Love, Wendy If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-12-00550Miss Penelope (female)

Lab 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 there, I am Miss Penelope, and if you are looking for a walking buddy and a cuddle bug, I am definitely the sweet girl for you! I am a one-of-a-kind 3-year-old, 55-pound Boxer/Labrador mix, and my beautiful good looks will definitely help us stand out when we go for a stroll in the neighborhood. Everyone will stop you to say 'Wow, what a gorgeous doggie you have!' and they would be right. I am a brindle beauty, which is basically like a really unique tie dye pattern! I also have a white chest and paws, so I look like I am ... (Read More)dressed up for a party. My deep chocolate eyes are very soulful and all you have to do is look into them to see how much I truly adore you. Because as pretty and special as I am on the outside, my personality is even better! And best of all for you: I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. Fetching Tails saved me as part of the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program (CRISP); my previous owners couldn't keep me any longer and brought me to Chicago Animal Care & Control. Thankfully FTF volunteers were there that day to help prevent owner surrenders from having to go inside the busy, loud shelter, and I found rescue immediately. My foster mom has been treating me like a princess ever since. I love going for long walks to explore the big, wide world. I would love a family that will take me on lots of adventures so we can stay healthy and fit together! I love all people, especially children, so I would be an excellent family dog. But I would prefer to be your one and only furry friend; I like to be the queen of the castle and have all your attention focused on me! I am also a very smart girl; I am crate and potty trained. I can be left alone for a long time without getting mischievous; foster mom can leave me for 8-10 hours when she has to go to work and I am perfectly behaved while she is gone. And I even know a few commands including sit, stay, paw, down, and come. I love to learn new things; Fetching Tails likes to encourage adopters to take their new pets to a few training courses, and I think it would be great fun to learn even more tricks! Does a sweet, beautiful love bug who also enjoys being your workout buddy sound like the perfect companion for you? Get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails as soon as possible and tell them you want to give Miss Penelope a happy tail! Love, Miss Penelope If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-12-00541Sonata (female)

Border Terrier Mix    Age: Young 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 there! If you are looking for a fun-loving, fearless, super cuddly little goofball to love and keep you company? My name is Sonata and I could be the little doll for you! I am a 4.5-pound, 3-month-old scruffy terrier mix, and I am looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation! I don't mean to sound vain, but I really am cute as a button and will keep you endlessly entertained if you decide to make me part of your family! I have luxurious black hair, with little white spots on my back legs that make me look like I ... (Read More)am wearing socks. I also have a little white spot on my chinny-chin-chin to help highlight my pretty dog smile. Fetching Tails Foundation saved my momma, siblings, and me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where we were brought by our previous owner because they were evicted from their home. My mom and siblings have all been adopted; I am having a blast at my foster home, but I am ready to find my forever home now, too! I do great with all dogs big and small (foster mommy laughs at me because even though I am the smallest dog at Fetching Tails, I love to find the biggest dogs around at the adoption show to play with!) I just want to play, play, play with everyone I meet! Fetching Tails requires all adopters of puppies to enroll us in training classes since we have lots to learn about the world. Personally, I think that sounds like a lot of fun, and if there is one thing to know about me it's that I LOVE fun activities! And it would give me a chance to further socialize with other dogs, which is my favorite activity ever. I also like to play with my toys, play with my human friends, and did I mention yet that I like to play with other dogs? When I think of my forever home, I know I want another playful dog to be my BFF so we can keep each other company and endlessly entertained. When I am done playing, I also enjoy a good snuggle with my foster momma. I hope my forever family likes to cuddle, because when I sleep I like to be near my humans! I can be left alone for a few hours while you go to work, but I would love to have humans who are able to be home with me a lot too since I love to be near you as much as possible. Even though I am tiny, I have a very big heart and want to share my love and love for adventure with my lucky family. If a playful, brave, spunky, and most of all happy little girl sounds like the perfect pup for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails and say 'I want to make a lifetime of music with Sonata!'

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-01-00161Tori (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!* Hey there! My name is Tori and I'm an affectionate, intelligent, and energetic young lady who is seeking an active, loving forever family. I'm particularly interested in people who enjoy a good walk, like daily playtime, and love to cuddle. I'm certain you'll fall in love with me when you meet me! I'm a 29-pound American Staffordshire Terrier and Labrador mix, with something else mixed in there that allows me to be so petite. At nearly eight months of age, I'm likely to stay medium-sized. In addition to my other wonderful ... (Read More)attributes, I also am a very fortunate girl, for several reasons. First, I was brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control by a nice man who saw me get hit by a tractor trailer, and knew I needed immediate medical help. Second, I'm very lucky that my injuries weren't far worse than they were: I only suffered fractures to both sides of my pelvis. Third, my friends at Fetching Tails stepped up to provide long-term care for me. Finally, I am so fortunate not to have needed orthopedic surgery; the surgeon said my fractures were the kind that could heal on their own with strict crate rest! So here I am, ready to find my forever home, my very own happily-ever-after 'tail.' I mentioned I want a family or person who enjoys a good walk: I will make a wonderful walking companion for you. As you can see from my picture, I am quite a show piece on the end of your arm as we stroll the neighborhood. People will definitely want to pet me, because I'm such a friendly little girl. If a leisurely hike through the forest preserve is more your style, I'm on board for that, too! This whole concept of walking on a leash is a bit new to me, but I took to the idea like a fish to water. I'm working really hard on this skill so that I'll be ready for our jaunts. Another favorite activity is'|just being in motion. I'm very inquisitive about the world around me, so I love to follow my foster mom as she cooks, does laundry, or any of those other interesting things that humans do. I really enjoy having two furry foster sisters as playmates, so I think I'd like to have a fur sibling - and maybe a human sibling or two as well! I'm good with kids, but I can be a little too playful for little ones, so kids over the age of 8 or so might be best for me. I'm currently fostered with a medium-sized, 3-year-old pittie, a 10-year-old Rottweiler, and I was fostered with a 7-year-old Schnauzer mix until she got adopted. I have a blast playing tug of war or just wrestling with my pittie sister, or stealing chew toys from my Rottie sister. I do really well with dogs of all sizes, but I prefer other medium-sized dogs closer to my age so we can play! Oh, and I'm hoping my forever home will have a fenced yard; I'm used to running and exploring in the backyard where I'm being fostered. My absolute favorite activity, though, is snuggling with my humans! I have recently learned to use steps to get on the couch, or to jump up there on my own. I like to curl up next to my foster parents, or place my chin on foster dad's arm while looking lovingly at him, and I've recently discovered I can snuggle behind my foster mom, between her and the back of the couch. I've also been known to cuddle with one of my foster sisters, either on the couch, on dog beds, or even in my crate. Speaking of the crate, I am definitely crate trained. I had to spend the better part of four to six weeks crated while my fractures healed, so I'm very accustomed to being in there. Foster mom recommends crating puppies when you leave the house anyway, and I agree. It prevents my inquisitive nature from getting me into trouble when I'm not supervised. I'm house trained, but like most young dogs, I still have to be supervised after I finish playing so I don't forget and sneak off to do my business. The dogs in my foster home are on a pretty regular potty schedule. Foster mom and dad work opposite shifts, so we usually aren't left alone for long, but I have occasionally been left for 8 hours without any potty accidents in my crate. That will only get better with practice, and as I get older. Overall, I'm a pretty flexible, go-with-the-flow personality who just wants to enjoy life! So what do you think? Don't I sound like a great match for anyone looking for a young, active, sweet, affectionate and smart girl? Wanna meet me? Just contact my friends at FTF and tell them Tori sent you!

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-25-00328Chandler (male)

Poodle Mix    Age: 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* Why hello there! You look like you could be searching for a devoted, protective, cuddly little furball to call your new doggie friend! You are in luck; I am Chandler and I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a 5-year-old, 15-pound poodle mix, and I am as cute as can be! I have rich, toffee-colored hair, and a unique, one-of-a-kind smile: when I smile, I curl my tongue up. It makes all my human friends at Fetching Tails laugh and they tell me I am such a handsome boy! Fetching Tails saved me from ... (Read More)Chicago Animal Care and Control, the big high-intake shelter in the city. It was loud and overwhelming for a little dog like me, so I needed some time to unwind and come out of my shell in my foster home. Foster momma made sure to give me space so I could feel safe and trust her. Now I am ready to find my forever home and I have some ideas about what I think would be a perfect match. I would love a quiet home without young children. I just prefer a calmer lifestyle and I think excited kiddos would be a bit overwhelming for me. Once I am settled into a place and know my new humans I am fiercely loyal, but I need to take some time to get used to new people so I hope my new parents are patient while I figure out my new environment. Some of my favorite activities include playing with my toys, going for walks around the neighborhood, and receiving shoulder rubs. Foster mommy works from home and I like having her around, but she can also leave me alone for up to six hours when she needs to go out and take care of business. When mom has to leave to leave the house, I am ok to free roam while she is gone. I am still learning that it is not ok to 'pee mark' in the house; I have been wearing a belly band to teach me not to mark in the house and am getting better, but will need continued practice to master this. It's a project we can work on together, right? Right! I am also content to be your one and only fur friend; I am fine with small dogs when we are introduced properly but I am not a fan of big dogs. My foster mommy doesn't have other dogs and I am perfectly happy to entertain momma and myself and don't really need another dog to keep my company! I am a very loving dog once I know I can trust my people and will be your devoted companion. If I sound like I could be the little guy for you, please get in touch with Fetching Tails Foundation soon; I can't wait to settle into my adoptive home and know that I will be safe and loved forever! XOXO, Chandler If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-02-00263Walter (male)

Mastiff 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* Are you looking for a fun-loving, playful but very affectionate 75-pound lap dog? I am Walter, and if you are looking for an extra special canine companion to share your life with, you just might hit the jackpot with me! I am a year-old tan Mastiff mix with some handsome black highlights around my face to make me extra cute. I know how lucky I am to have been saved by Fetching Tails Foundation, and I love to enjoy life now that I have been given this second chance! Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care and ... (Read More)Control, where I sat for weeks hoping to leave my cage behind for good. People passed me by because, quite frankly, my eye looked really gross. But my human angels from Fetching Tails looked at my sparkling personality instead of my bulging eye, so we left the overwhelming, loud shelter behind and I settled into my awesome foster home like I had always been there. Let's get the technical stuff out of the way: I had glaucoma in one eye and cataracts in the other. The glaucoma eye was beyond saving and extremely painful so that has been removed, and SO many really awesome people rallied behind me to raise money for me to have cataract surgery so I will be able to see again with one eye! Please don't let my eye issues dissuade you from considering me as your life buddy; I have adapted very well to my current condition and I will be even better after my sight is restored in my remaining eye. This eye stuff doesn't bother me now that I have been given the medical treatment and love I needed, so don't let it bother you! So let's instead 'focus' on the all-around awesomeness I could bring to your life, because I bring a LOT of fun to the table! ('See' what I did there? Two sight jokes in a row -- I'm a funny guy!) I'm a mischievous jokester and make my foster dad laugh all the time with my busybody antics. I love to run and play in foster dad's big backyard, so I would love to have a home with a fenced yard that I can enjoy. My favorite activity is playing chase with my big ball outside, followed closely by my second favorite activity: sneaking the ball inside to play chase with it in the living room! I like to run and play non-stop until I am so exhausted that I can fall asleep immediately on my comfy cozy dog bed. I would love an active family that will play with me and let me be the active, adventurous guy I am meant to be! I'm pretty good with my house manners, but I am basically a giant puppy with lots to learn about the world so I would love to take a few training classes with my forever family. My Fetching Tails friends always say that training is important and a good idea for all newly adopted dogs and I must say that I agree. I am potty trained (so no accidents in the house!) and have learned the command 'sit,' and I would love to learn more so I can be my best self for my forever family. I aim to please! I simply adore people and want nothing more than to make my humans happy! Plus I hear training classes are fun for humans and dogs alike, and if something is fun I want to be there in the middle of the action! So what are you waiting for? If I sound like I could be the perfect dog for you, please get in touch with my Fetching Tails friends today and say 'I want to see the world with Walter!' Love, Walter If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-21-00367Sada (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A CHICAGO SUBURB) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* Need a furry friend who will help keep your lap warm and is good, cuddly company for tv binge-watching marathons? Hi there, I'm Sada and I am ready to report for duty! I am 40 pounds of devoted lap-dog; as the saying goes 'if I fit, I sit' and I haven't found a lap that I can't snuggle onto yet! I am a gorgeous cream-colored, 9-month-old American Staffordshire mix, and I have ears that stand at attention waiting to be scratched. And the best part? I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! My foster parents saved me from ... (Read More)Chicago Animal Care and Control, where I was brought after my previous owners abandoned me in their apartment from which they were evicted. They received a cruelty charge for their behavior, and I am leaving my past behind me because I know I am now on to a better and brighter future! I love life in my foster home; I have humans and a doggie friend that love me and I love right back. Have I mentioned yet that I love to cuddle? Because, seriously, I need a forever family that loves to cuddle. We could cuddle on the couch, cuddle in bed together, cuddle whilst sitting outside and enjoying the fresh air! Doesn't that sounds amazing? I also enjoy playing with my foster canine sister; as soon as Asha lets me know she wants to have fun I am happy to oblige! We can play for hours, just chasing around the house and play wrestling. Asha likes to play with stuffed toys, but I like to rip them apart so we take a break from each other when she wants to play with her dolls. I really like to chew, so foster daddy bought me some antlers so I have something to entertain me for a long time and I don't upset my foster sister by ruining her favorite toy. It was a great compromise; I just love chewing on my fancy antlers! When I think about what I want in my forever home, I would love to have a doggie friend to keep me company when our humans have to leave us home. I get lonely when I am all by myself, so it would be nice to have a canine companion to cuddle with when my humans can't be there to snuggle. I also really love going on walks and even car rides, so I hope my forever family wants to go on lots of adventures with me! I am well-behaved on a leash and don't try to pull or go faster than my human, so we could have many nice, leisurely strolls through the neighborhood together! I have pretty good house manners and am learning more all the time! I have learned a few commands including 'sit,' 'stay,' and the all-important 'no.' Foster daddy says I am very respectful and attentive. I am still working on potty training, but I am working very hard to master it because I just want to make my people happy. I love learning and being the best girl I can be, so I think it could be fun for my forever family and me to take a few training classes together. I'm sure we could be the smartest team in the class in no time! More than anything, I just want a family that will love me as much as I love them. And, of course, cuddle with me as much as possible. Because, seriously, who doesn't love a good cuddle session? If you think I could be the cuddle-bug you have been searching for, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon! I can't wait to start my 'happy tail' with my forever family! Love and cuddles, Sada If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-18-00479Jojo (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE WITHIN 50 MILES OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS* Unique, loving, playful, cuddlebug, people pleaser. Don't these sound like great adjectives to describe a dog? Well, lucky you, because if you are looking for a canine companion that fits all these qualities, I'm your girl! My name is JoJo and I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a beautiful 4-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix and weigh a healthy 65 pounds. My gorgeous face will draw you in as soon as you see me: I'm a pretty tan color and my face looks like I spent extra time putting my make-up ... (Read More)on: I have black and white highlights that draw attention to my huge 'pittie' smile and big hazel eyes. When you look into my eyes, you can just see how happy I am and how much love I have to give. I was found locally as a stray and my Fetching Tails friends saved me when my previous owners never showed up to claim me. I have been having a great time in my foster home relaxing and letting my humans love on me. I love human attention: nothing makes me happier than being near my people and letting them give me head/belly/butt scratches. I get so excited when I see my people that I do a happy dance/bounce, but I am learning to greet people more calmly since that can be too much for some people. I think I would do best in a forever home with older kids. I love my 10-year-old human foster sister, but my excited greetings and energy might be too much for the itty-bitty humans; I would feel so bad if I accidentally knocked one of them over with my love! I have really good house manners, too. I am fully potty trained and I don't need to be crated while my humans leave me home alone because I only chew on my toys and I will find a comfy place to lay down and wait for them to come back (I often go in my 'doggie den' aka crate with the door open for naps!) I also already know 'sit,' and, like I said, am working on not jumping on people to greet them. I think a couple training classes would be so much fun with my forever family. I'm very smart and like learning new things so we could have a great bonding experience! I am very playful and would love a yard to run and play in. If you have other dogs, I think I would do best with a big dog like me who wouldn't mind my playfulness. I am such a happy girl that I get as excited to greet dogs as I do when I get to greet people; I know that can be overwhelming for some dogs so I would love a bestie who can handle my spunky demeanor! I am pretty lively, so an active home where we can play a lot or go for long walks will keep my energy level in check and wear me out so we can have nice long cuddle sessions afterwards. Once I am done playing I like to curl up with my humans and rest my head in their lap while I quietly snore and dream about how much I love my life. Don't I sound like quite the catch? If you think we could have a happy, loving life together please get in touch with my Fetching Tails friends as soon as possible so we can start our 'happily ever after' together! If you are ready to love me, I am more than ready to love you right back! Sweet kisses and happy tail wags, JoJo If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

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

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (SUBURBAN CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* How you doin'? I'm Rusty, but my friends call me Love Muffin, and if you're looking for a handsome stud who will provide you with endless affection, I'm the dog for you! I am a 6-year-old reddish/gold colored Lab mix and I am looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. Not to sound vain, but I'm a pretty awesome guy. I don't know how I ended up all alone at a local animal shelter, but I was so happy when my new human friends at Fetching Tails came to save me. I have been loving life at my foster home. I am my foster dad's shadow ... (Read More)and love to follow him around. But my best friend in my foster home is the resident cat! That's right! If you have been searching for a long time for a dog that gets along with cats, I'm your boy! Nothing makes me happier than sitting by my feline friend on the couch. And boy do I have a happy-go-lucky personality! Since I am middle aged, though I have lively energetic bursts (especially when playing in foster dad's backyard) I also like to chill out and relax a LOT too! It's a nice balanced energy level, I think. I'm always happy to meet new people, and I like to bark and let other dogs know I'm here when I see them walking by the house. I'm a bit dog selective and picky about what canines I let join my squad; I love foster dad's female dog and we play great together, but I need proper introductions with other dogs to know that our energy and personalities are compatible. I am also potty trained and listen well to commands, including sit, down, paw, and 'come on' when foster dad wants me to follow him. Foster dad says I'm very well behaved in the house. I don't need to be crated when he is at work; I whine like a puppy a little when he leaves, but then I just lay around and wait for him to come home. When I think of my forever home, I'm not too picky. I think I would enjoy having a fenced yard to run and play in, and people who love me as much as I love them (so love me A LOT!) I would would be content as your one and only love muffin, but would be extra happy if you have a cat friend with whom I could cuddle! I do love food and especially treats, so hopefully my forever family will keep a hearty stock of cookies for me to enjoy. I'll even work for my treats; my favorite 'trick' is taking selfies! I love when my foster dad's adult daughter visits and pulls out her camera phone. Hey, I know I'm handsome and if you want to take a picture to show your friends what a good looking fella I am, I am happy to make a goofy smile! So what are you waiting for? I sound like Mr. Wonderful, right? Right! So hurry up and get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation today; tell them the love muffin Rusty sent you! I can't wait to start our life together! Love, Rusty If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org if you have any questions please email us.

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (SUBURBAN CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* Hello everyone! My name is Ari, and I'm a sweet senior girl with a lot of love yet to give! I like to think of myself as aged to perfection. You know, like fine wine or good cheese. I'm a beautiful, brown eyed girl with an expressive look that will melt your heart! I'm a Rottweiler mix, so I'm just a tad smaller than your average Rottie and weigh in at about 100 pounds of love. And at 10 years young, I'm a Special Reserve vintage. I was rescued by Fetching Tails Foundation after being dumped by the side of the road in a local suburb; a witness saw ... (Read More)my family push me out of their car and drive away. I'm not sure why, because my Foster Mom and Dad (FM and FD) say I'm just about as sweet as they come, and that I'm such a good girl! Maybe they didn't want me anymore because I move a little slower than I used to, or because I had some untreated health issues. Not to worry, though! FTF made certain I got the treatment I needed. Once FTF heard about me, my story took a wonderful turn for the better. Now I'm in a foster home where I'm loved and pampered, with a furry foster sister to keep me company. My FM just loves it when I greet her at the door wagging my nub of a tail. I'm an easy-going girl, and I'm no longer interested in running through the grass chasing squirrels - I leave that to my much younger foster sister. Instead, I prefer to be close to you. If you're busy folding laundry or fixing dinner, I'm right there to supervise. If it's time to kick up your feet and relax with your favorite TV show or a classic book, I enjoy lying near your feet and just being nearby in case you want to pet me. I love having my belly rubbed, and if you hit just the right spot on my belly or behind my ears, I'll 'purr' (in a very dignified, doggy-kind-of-way, of course!). If you stop petting me before I'm ready, I gently place my paw on your knee while gazing into your eyes. Gentle, pretty, endearing, and all-around charming - that's me! I'd like my new home to be fairly laid back. I like everyone I meet, but sometimes younger dogs and kids don't understand that I'm not as spry as I'd like to be. If there are other dogs, I would prefer older, more settled fur siblings like myself. I'm good with older kids who understand that I'm not as playful these days, and I would enjoy a fenced yard so I can go outside off leash to relax or do my business. I'm fully house trained, and I even know to go potty in a specific area of the yard - no hunting for messy piles in the middle of your lawn with me! I'm well-educated, too. I know 'sit,' 'down,' 'paw,' and 'come,' but if you want to teach me more commands, I'm game! Hey, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. I'm crate trained, but I don't really need to be crated -- I know what's acceptable for me to chew on, and I pride myself on my excellent manners! I'm fine being left alone for 8 or 9 hours at a time, although I'm lucky enough that my foster home has a dog walker for me and the foster sis on the few occasions no one is home. I have to admit, I kinda like that I don't get left more than 5 or 6 hours at a time. I'm used to having people around (FM and FD have alternating schedules), but I'm adaptable if everyone is out during the day. It would be great if you had the flexibility to work from home one or two days a week, though! I'm really looking forward to finding a family who will love and cherish me for the rest of my life. I know I still have a lot to give to a family, or just to one person! If you think I would be a good fit for your home, please hurry and contact my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation. I'm waiting patiently for you!
