Rescue Me ID: 16-11-12-00390Dane (male)

Plott Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Well hello there! You look like you could be searching for a stunningly handsome and endlessly loving new dog friend. Am I right? Well, you came to the right place; my name is Dane and I am a hound/springer spaniel mix who is looking for a loving forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am about 1 year old, and have the most unique fur pattern: I look like an abstract painting with black and white speckles across my body and two chocolate-colored patches covering my eyes and ears. And my bright, shiny amber-colored eyes ... (Read More)and big smile will always let you know just how much I love you! I was found as a stray in southern Illinois and brought to a shelter there. My friends at Fetching Tails Foundation saw my picture and offered to save me; I was so happy to make the trip up to Chicagoland to my loving foster home! Unfortunately, I was heartworm positive, but I had treatment to kill the dangerous parasite and have been recuperating in my foster home for a couple months. I have been a model patient and have been on the mend, so I am ready and excited to find my forever family now! I am a very loving dog, and would love a family that enjoys lots of cuddles and affection. Nothing makes me happier than people close to the people I love. I get along with people of all ages, and am dog friendly, too. Some of my favorite activities include going for walks and snuggling with my people on the couch together. I am also a well-mannered guy. I have been mastering potty training, and have gotten very good at going to the door to let my foster mommy know I need to 'do my business.' I am also crate trained, and am comfortable resting in what I call my 'doggie den' when foster mommy has to go to work or run errands. I am playful, but more than anything I just want a loving home with people who will shower me with attention. I promise I will love you right back; doesn't that just sound wonderful? If a sweet, loving, super handsome guy sounds like the perfect companion for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon and let them know I am the boy for you! I can't wait to start our lives together! Love, Dane If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-26-00620Dieter (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Young and fun, entertaining and sweet! If you are looking for a lifetime of adventures with a happy-go-lucky fella, please allow me to introduce myself! Hi there! My name is Dieter and I am a 1-year-old yellow Labrador mix. I have luscious blonde locks and weigh about 50-60 pounds. Best of all? I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! My foster momma saved me from southern Illinois high-intake shelter. I was so happy to make the ride up to Chicagoland to have a second chance at a long, happy life! And ... (Read More)let me tell you, I have been one VERY happy boy since I joined the pack at my foster home! I love to run and play with my foster brother Gunther (he is an 80-pound black lab mix) as well as my buddy Deacon, who is also available for adoption through Fetching Tails. I have plenty of energy to keep up with my playful friends; we have a great time playing chase and zoomies in the yard together. I think it would be sooo cool to have a fenced yard at my forever home so I can run and play freely; it'll help keep my lab energy in check! I get along famously with most dogs, so if you already have a furry friend or two, I think it could be fun to have new best friends! I long for a forever family who enjoys the active lifestyle. I am all about that fun time, and would love to have a family that will play with me and exercise with me. Maybe we could be power-walking buddies and keep up with our fitness together? I am also a good roommate, and have good house manners. I don't jump up on furniture without being invited first; don't get me wrong, I love to cuddle and snuggle with foster momma, but I wait for her to tell me it is ok first. Isn't that so polite? I am potty trained and I have also figured out that it can be fun to hang out in my crate when foster momma has to go to work. She works full time, and I am ok in my crate during the day while she is gone (I do have an awesome friend that foster momma calls a 'dog walker' who comes to visit around lunchtime to let me and my friends out for 30 minutes to play and go potty!) Fetching Tails likes to encourage all adopters to attend training classes with their new pets, and I think that could be a lot of fun! I am a very smart, curious boy, and I would love to see what else I can learn. If an endlessly entertaining, curious, and loving dog sounds like the right fit for your fun family, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails as soon as possible and let them know Dieter is the dog for you! I can't wait to start our happily ever together! Kisses and Tail Wags, Dieter If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-26-00618Cyla (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier 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!* Howdy! Are you looking for a lively, active, and devoted new best friend? My name is Cyla, and I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a gorgeous 1.5-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix. I am about 45 pounds and have stunning silver/blue fur that sparkles when the sun shines on me. I also have a darling white and pink patch on my nose; it is so cute that you won't be able to resist looking at my sweet, happy face all the time! I was saved by Fetching Tails Foundation through a program they ... (Read More)co-founded called CRISP (the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program.) My previous owners brought me to Chicago Animal Care and Control to give me up, but because of CRISP I found immediate rescue and never even had to enter the busy, overwhelming shelter! I was so happy to go to a foster home and start to learn how to be a loving family pet. When I was rescued, I wasn't potty trained, and foster mommy thinks I was never actually allowed inside a house before because I had a lot to learn, but I am a VERY smart young girl and have been an excellent scholar so far. I am now almost completely potty trained; with continued practice and patience while I settle into a routine I will have it perfected very soon! I have also learned to sit on command and am crate trained. I have more to learn, and would love a forever family who will take me to some training classes to continue to become the best version of myself. I love receiving praise and treats, and I hear you get a lot of both at training classes, so sign me up, please! When I think of my forever home, I think I would love an active couple who will play with me and take me for long walks; maybe I could even be your jogging buddy? I am an active girl, and would love a family that will be happy to keep up with me. Because of my energy level and play style, I would do best in a home with older, teen-aged children. I would also be very happy to be your one and only canine companion. I like to play with my toys can keep myself entertained (one of my favorite games is to throw a ball in the air so I can catch it!). And if it's not too much to ask, I would love a fenced yard so I could run around and play. What can I say? I am a young dog and play time is my favorite time! When I am done playing, I love to jump up in bed with you and roll around in the comfy blankets before we cuddle a bit. Doesn't that sound like the ideal life? I am a fun-loving, people-adoring, goofy girl; if I sound like I could be a good addition to your family, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon and let them know Cyla sent you! I can't wait to go on fun adventures with my forever family! XOXO, Cyla If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-09-00246Nat (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! Are you looking for an adventurous, playful, energetic superhero of a dog to call your new best friend? I am Nat, and I am a gorgeous 2-year-old Black Labrador mix. It could be your lucky day because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am 50 pounds of fun, and would love a forever family who is ready to go on lots of adventures with me! Not to to sound immodest, but I am a real beauty: I have rich black fur, chocolate brown eyes, and a smile that just screams 'happy girl!' My personality ... (Read More)matches my big, gorgeous smile: did I mention yet that I am a super fun, happy-go-lucky lady? When I think of my forever home, I think I would like an active family. I love going for long walks, and I could even be an excellent jogging buddy if you are looking for a friend to help you keep up your fitness. I think it would be a lot of fun to have a fenced yard to run and play in, as well. Hey, what can I say? I am a Lab and we Labs love to find fun ways to burn our energy! I get along well with other dogs, so if you are looking for a playmate for your canine companion, I would be happy to take on the job! I have also previously lived with a cat and did fine with him, though I did want to play with him more than he wanted to play with me. One of my favorite activities is to play what my Fetching friends call 'zoomies,' which basically is a game where I run around as fast as I can in the yard. Trust me, it is the BEST! I am also learning to play fetch...I love to chase the ball, but haven't quite mastered giving it back yet. I think that is something we could work on together, yes? I also love human kiddos, though maybe with my energy level children who are past the toddler stage might be better. I am a pretty strong girl, and I would hate to accidentally knock over my human friends when I am romping around at my full zoomie speed. More than anything, I just want a family to shower with my attention and affection; I am a very friendly girl and love to make new human friends! I am a good student (I am very treat motivated! Show me a little bone-shaped cookie and I pay attention very well!) and have learned a few commands such as sit, down, and quiet. I have even taken a few formal training classes, as well! But all dogs always have more to learn, and I would love to keep taking more training classes to see just how smart I can get! My friends at Fetching Tails always encourage all adopters to attend some training sessions with their new pups; we both can learn a lot, and it is also an excellent bonding experience for us. Doesn't that sound like so much fun? Let's be the smartest couple in the class! I am also potty trained, and don't chew on things I am not supposed to. Give me a nylabone or antler to chew on instead and I am one happy girl! (I know, I know, everything makes me a happy girl! I can't help it, I have a great outlook on life!) So what are you waiting for? Don't I sound like I could be an exciting, fun sidekick for you and your family? If you are interested in making me a part of your squad, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation as soon as possible! I can't wait to start the next chapter of my story! Love, Nat If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-09-00210Deacon (male)

Border Collie 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 ready for a lifetime of fun and adventures with a devoted canine companion? Do you need a buddy with whom to watch sports on tv? Well, I would like to apply for the job. My name is Deacon, and I am a 1-year-old border collie mix; lucky for you, I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a pretty good looking dude if I say so myself. My coat is decorated with caramel and white swirls, and I have handsome hazel eyes. And I am about 40 pounds of lively love! My friends at Fetching Tails ... (Read More)Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control. Ever since my foster mommy took me into her home, I have been having a total blast playing with her female pittie mix Rey (who is a Fetching Tails alumna! She tells me all the time in our doggie language that I will find a great forever home for myself just like she did!) We love to run around in the backyard together and play together inside, and play with our toys and chew bones together, basically playing together as much as possible. I love to play and be active, so I would love a forever family that likes to be active, too; I could be a great workout buddy if you need a friend on long walks. It would also be amazing to have another dog friend; I think a canine companion about my size and energy level would be a perfect fit! We can keep each other entertained and be best friends forever. And I am serious about watching sports on tv: it doesn't matter what sport, if there is a game on the telly I like to get right up in front of it and keep an eye on the ball. So when we are all done going on fun adventures and playing, I would be the happiest dog alive if we could watch a highlights reel or two on ESPN together. I have great house manners and I am learning even more all the time! I am potty trained, and I do fine resting in my crate while foster mommy goes to work. She says I am very good at letting my people know when I have to go outside and 'take care of business.' I know a few basic commands, including sit, stay, and give paw. I love to learn, and Fetching Tails Foundation likes to encourage all adopters to attend training courses with their new pups, so I think it would be a lot of fun if we could take a few classes together. I love to go on long walks, but I can get excited and pull a little strong, so maybe we could work on leash skills together in doggie school? More than anything, I would love a family that is up for fun and adventures like I am, and a family that will love me for life! If I sound like I could be the fun-loving, active, spunky (And did I mention cuddly and affectionate? Because I am definitely a cuddlebug, too!) sports-junkie for you, please get in touch with my foster mommy at Fetching Tails and tell her you are ready to watch the World Series with me! Love, Deacon If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

    *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 loving, playful, big-headed new best friend? Hi there, my name is Teddie, and I am the perfect candidate for you! I am a 3-year-old 'pit bull' mix who is looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am 60 low-riding pounds of pure affection and fun! Do you mind if I am a little vain for a second? I am a really handsome fellow. I look like I am wearing a tuxedo that screams 'life of the party!' My coat is stunning blue-silver and I have a white chest. And it's a good thing that I have a ... (Read More)giant goofy smile because I like to use my mouth to give lots of sweet kisses! My friends at Fetching Tails Foundation rescued me through a program they co-founded called CRISP; my previous owners brought me to Chicago Animal Care and Control to give me up, but thankfully my rescue friends were there that day and took me in before I ever set foot inside the big, overwhelming shelter. I am so happy they were there; I am having the time of my life at my foster home! My foster mom has a big yard, and I love to play fetch and race around playing a game called 'zoomies' (it is exactly what it sounds like: zooming around the yard as fast as I can!) I would love to have a fenced yard at my forever home so I can play my favorite game with my forever family. I also think it would be fun to have a doggie playmate; even though foster mom doesn't have any other dogs, I get along great with every dog I meet, and think it would be awesome to have a B.F.F. that I could play with and cuddle with. As much as I love to play (and would love an active family who likes playtime and going for long walks), I also enjoy 'chill time,' too. I am so happy to curl up next to foster momma and get a good massage. So if you like to play hard and snuggle hard, I am definitely your boy! I am also a well-behaved roommate. I am potty trained, and don't need to be crated when foster mom isn't home (I don't really like the crate, so I know to behave myself and not chew on things I am not supposed to while foster mommy is at work!) I know a few basic commands such as sit, stay, and down, and am working on heel. I am also working on my leash manners; I just get so excited to meet new friends on our walks that I can sometimes be a strong puller. Fetching Tails Foundation encourages all adopters to take their new pups to training classes, and I would love to learn and bond with you in a fun class setting. I want nothing more than to please my people, and sometimes I can be a little timid when I think I have done something wrong (even when I haven't.) Training classes can help us learn lots of tricks and would be a great confidence-boosting experience for me, as well! I love to hear that I am a good boy and receive praise when I perform a command correctly or do something that makes foster momma happy. I just want my special person to love me as much as I love them! If a playful and endlessly loving gentleman sounds like the perfect addition to your family, please get in touch with Fetching Tails Foundation, and them handsome Teddie is the doggie for you! I can't wait to start our happily ever after together! Love and tail wags, Teddie If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-09-00202Astra (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier 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!* Are you looking for a spunky new best friend who is full of life and happiness? Hi there, my name is Astra and I am an adorable 25-pound American Staffordshire mix who is available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a beautiful 1-year-old lady: I have cream and caramel-colored fur, and my ears are always up because I love to hear your voice telling me what a good girl I am. And for as pretty as I am, my personality is even more appealing than my physical appearance! I was found locally with my friend Smokey, ... (Read More)who is also available for adoption through Fetching Tails. We were on our own in Busse Woods and brought to the local animal control boarding facility. No one came to claim us, so Fetching Tails Foundation saved us when our time was up. I am having a great time at my foster home now! I have a doggie foster sister to play with, and she taught me how to play fetch; it is such a fun game! I would love a forever home with a fenced yard so I can play fetch with my forever family as much as possible. When I am all done playing, I am happy to cuddle with my people...cuddling is the best! I get along well with other dogs and all humans; I think it would be fun to have human kiddos as my best friends, but it might be best if they are past the toddler stage because I would hate to accidentally knock over my human sibling when I am playing zoomies (one of my other favorite games...it involves running around as fast as I can to see if I can outrun my shadow!) I am also learning a lot in my foster home, which is great because I am a smart girl and love to learn new things! I am crate trained and rest comfortably in mine for 4-5 hours a day while foster mommy is at work. I am continuing to perfect potty training; with continued consistency and patience I will be 100-percent very soon. I know quite a few basic commands already, including, sit, lay down, drop it, and come. I also have learned to sit nicely until being told 'free' to eat or play. I love to learn, and would love to take some training courses with my forever family to continue my education. Fetching Tails likes to encourage all adopters to attend training with their new pups, and let me tell you, I am really excited by this idea! I still have more to learn; I love going for long walks but could use some practice with my leash skills...I just get so excited to meet new friends that I like to try and go faster to meet new dogs. Why don't we take a class or two together to keep working on this and other commands; I bet we would be the valedictorians in no time! I would also love the bonding time and attention; I am a social butterfly and training classes are great for working on our connection to each other as well! I am such a loving pup, and nothing makes me happier than making my humans feel as happy and loved as I do! If I sound like I could be the sweet, playful, happy lovebug canine companion for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them Astra is the girl for you! I cannot wait to start our happily ever after together! Love, Astra If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-28-00448Egypt (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER, NO EXCEPTIONS* Hi there! My name is Egypt and if you are looking for a living, breathing teddy bear to cuddle with all day, I am the perfect dog for you! I am an 8-year-old Shih Tzu mix, and I am seven pounds of pure affection! Because my hair was super matted when I was rescued, I had to be shaved down; when my new fluffy coat grows back it will be luxuriously black. And how cute are my big button eyes? One quick look into them and you can see just how much I love you. And best of all? I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I ... (Read More)was saved from Chicago Animal Care and Control; my foster mommy was so excited to help me get out of the loud, busy shelter, and I was just as excited to have a loving home again. I am most excited to have a human lap upon which to rest. I have a pretty laid-back personality and temperament, and am a calm little lady. I love to cuddle and snuggle; I would be happiest with a forever family that wants a lap dog more than anything. I have short bursts of energy and like to partake in tossing my toys around when I am feeling goofy, but when I am done with playtime nothing makes me happier than crawling back onto your lap so we can read a good book or watch a movie marathon together. I have pretty great house manners, too. I am potty and crate trained. I think I would do best with a person who is home more often than not; I don't mind when foster mommy goes out for a few hours and settle down in my crate for naptime, but I think anything more than 4-5 hours and I would get lonely. I just love being around my special person so much and would prefer to spend lots of time together! I would also prefer to be your one and only canine companion; I love being the center of attention. It would be nice to have a fenced yard for playtime and pottytime; I am fine walking on a leash, but I am ready to turn around and go home pretty fast so we can have more cuddle time. My friends at Fetching Tails Foundation like to encourage all adopters to sign up for training classes with their new pups, and I think that might be fun. Dogs of all ages can always learn new tricks and tips! It would be a great bonding experience for us, as well. It would be fun to see how much we can learn together. If you are looking for a sweet, cuddly, little friend to shower you with attention and affection, please get in touch with Fetching Tails Foundation as soon as possible and let them know Egypt is the little lady for you! XOXO, Egypt If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

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!

Cocker Spaniel Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS* Howdy! Are you looking for a sweet little guy who would love to be your lap dog and keep you endlessly entertained? You are in luck! My name is Doug, and I am a 1.5-year-old Tibetan Terrier mix. I am only 14 pounds so I fit perfectly on all laps for cuddle sessions, and I am super handsome: you could call me salt and pepper-colored, or black with lots of light highlights. And my warm chocolate eyes will melt your heart. Fetching Tails Foundation saved me when I was found locally as a stray and my previous owners never tried to ... (Read More)claim me. Since moving into my foster home, I have settled in well to my routine of cuddling a lot and playing a lot with my loving foster family. I am shy at first so it take me a little time to trust new friends, but once I know you will love me I will be your best friend forever. My favorite activities including playing with my favorite stuffed-animal toys (I love to toss my toys over my back so I can keep chasing them!) and snuggling on the couch or in bed with my humans while we watch some TV or catch some zzzz's. So I would love a person who wants the whole package: a dog to spend lots of time playing with, but will also be happy to let me curl up on your lap when all my energy is spent. When I think of my forever home, I think I would love to be your one and only furry companion. I just love all your attention for myself, and have more than enough affection to give you in return. I would also like a human or two who will be patient while I come out of my shell and continue to work on my house manners. I am working hard on potty training at my foster home, but still have room for improvement; I am getting used to a having a potty schedule and have made great strides already! Fetching Tails likes to encourage all adopters to take a few training classes with their new pets, and I think that would be great. It could help me continue to boost my confidence, and I think we would have a lot of fun learning new things together! I would also love for my humans to be home more often than not; like I said I just love being around my people as much as possible! If a cuddly and funny, snuggly and goofy affectionate little friend is what you have been longing for, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and let them know you would like to give Doug his 'happy tail!' Love and snuggles, Doug If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-25-00328Chandler (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 love women the most and do best with them, and 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. I would also do well with an assertive human who will work with me to overcome some of my shyness and fears. 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! Fetching Tails Foundation encourages all adopters to attend training sessions with their new pups; it would be a great bonding experience for us and it would help me socialize further with other dogs and humans (which sounds great to me!) I am also content to be your one and only fur friend; I like playing with other dogs that are my size, but prefer to have all your attention for myself at home. 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 w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
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, 1-year-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. I am having the time of my life now that I am safe with Fetching Tails; I love life in my foster home, but I am more than ready to find my loving forever family now! In my foster home, I have humans and other foster doggie friends that love me and I love right back. I don't mind whether or not my forever family has other dogs; I would be very content as your one-and-only furry friend, but I also get along well with most dogs, especially smaller, pint-sized pups and bigger dogs who won't boss me around. What matters most is that I find a family who enjoys a good snuggle session. 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 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 also potty trained. 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.

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-21-00364Asha (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A CHICAGO SUBURB) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi! My name is Asha, and if you are looking for an active, fun girl to be your exercise buddy, I could be the perfect companion for you! I am an 11-month-old American Pit Bull Terrier mix, and I am looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am a gorgeous, 45-pound muscular girl with a beautifully unique black-and-white fur coat. And don't I have the sweetest face? I would love to look up at you with my puppy-dog eyes every day to let you know just how much I love and adore you! Fetching Tails Foundation ... (Read More)rescued me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where I was brought after some of my doggie friends and I were found in cages in a basement. But the past is in the past, and I am so happy now that I am loved and allowed to be a happy doggie! When I think of my forever home, I would love an active family that would like to run and play with me. I just LOVE to run: I like to play zoomies in my fenced yard at my foster home (I would really like to have a fenced yard at my forever home, too!), and would even enjoy going for long jogs around the neighborhood with you. I am a fast girl, I hope you can keep up with me! I also think it would be AMAZING to have another big, playful dog with whom I could be BFFs. I love to play with other dogs, and it would be so much fun to have a furry friend to hang out with! I would do best in a home with no cats, though: I just love to chase the kitties in my foster home, and I hear cats don't like that so much. I also think I would do better with older children in the family; I am so fast and I would hate to accidentally knock over one of my human siblings while I am in one of my playful moods! I really love to play with a wide variety of toys and play with kongs that have treats filled in them, so I hope my forever family will be willing to pamper me with my favorites so I can keep myself busy and entertained! I have been working on scholarly pursuits and have attended lots of training classes since I was rescued. I am crate trained, and have been working on learning commands and proper manners so I can be the best dog I can be! Fetching Tails Foundation encourages all adopters to attend training courses with their new pups, and I would love to keep working my way through doggie higher education. There are always more tricks and commands to learn, and I would love to learn them all with you by my side! If you think a fun, loving, active companion who is ready and waiting to go on all life's adventures with you is what you have been looking for, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon!

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!

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-02-00355Ari (female)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    *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!
