BENNY – 1 year male. Benny is a sweet, silly, loving boy. Just look at that face, don’t you just want to squeeze those rottie cheeks? He was raised with children and is good with dogs of all sizes, (his best friends were a chihuahua and german shepherd.) Benny is also housebroken and crate trained. Benny is still young and very much a puppy, he will need a family committed to training and exercise.

Of course, he is such a great all around dog there has to be a catch. Poor Benny has some kind of neurological issue with his front legs. He can walk, run and live a very normal life, he just walks funny – throws his front legs out. Benny has been with the rescue for a couple of weeks and during this time we have tried everything our vets can think of to help, but his condition has not changed. Whatever this condition is, it does not affect his back legs at all. The doctors feel that Benny, as he is, can lead a good quality life. As for Benny, he is used to it, and just doesn’t care. The worst that happens is that every once in a while, when he really gets going, he will stumble, but that can be controlled. Benny does have a one simple architectural specific for his future home—a home that is limited in stairs.

Benny’s future family will need to accept him as he is, know that this is the best he can be. In return Benny will be forever grateful for having a new family in time for the holidays.

HAILEY – 3 ½ year female. Hailey is such a little thing, only 60# of Rottweiler, perfect size for snuggling.  She is super sweet, gets along well with male dogs, but not sure yet about small dogs and cats. Hailey would love to have a quiet home with a fenced in yard, maybe a buddy her size to play with. She does have some basic obedience skills, but it never hurts to learn more. Hailey needs a home that will give her time to settle in and become comfortable. Hailey came to us with a cherry eye. It will be surgically repaired when she is spayed prior to her placement.

She is very eager to please though and very food motivated. Jessie is housebroken and crate trained. She needs a fenced in yard and a family that is active. Jess would also love to have a canine buddy to play with. Due to her high energy level we recommend children over the age of 10.

MELONIE is a sweet 5 year old big girl (approx. 108#). When you first meet Melonie she can be very standoff-ish. This is very sad as she is such a pretty girl but it is apparent that her last home didn’t give her a lot of attention. Melonie would love to change that, but she needs someone that will help build her confidence. A new home that is quiet, no children and if another dog, an extremely laid back male her own size.  Her son Nico has been at her side since he was born, maybe there is a home that would adopt both.

If you are interested in including Melonie, please go to our Placement Page for our placement policies, rescue location and online application

 

 

NICO, 10 month male, is Melonie’s son. Mom and son, were relinquished to a shelter in North Carolina and made the long trip to Chicago seeking a better life. Like his mom, Nico, would benefit by having a more quiet household with no children. He would do better in a home with another dog just so he can follow their lead.  This is another story that brings tears to our eyes. This beautiful young boy, who has so much to give, just doesn’t know how to give it.  Nico is a willing learner but he needs someone who will be patient with him while helping him learn new skills.

TALIA – 2 year female. Such an easy going, lsweetheart. Talia can be a little timid at first meeting, but warms up quickly. She would do well in a low key household, children over the age of 10. Talia does know some basic commands and is very eager to please. She is also housebroken and crate trained. We do know that Talia would do well with dogs her own size, but not sure how she feels about small dogs and cats. Talia is waiting for a family to permanently call her own. Is that you?

ZEUS – 2 year male.  Zeus is such a happy boy, but also sad that his family could no longer take care of him. He was not ignored by his last family, as they made sure he was housebroken and crate trained. He is also good with other dogs his own size (we are not sure about small dogs and cats). Zeus does know some basic commands and is very eager to please. Definitely a lot of pluses. Zeus is an active boy and would enjoy having a family that likes to go for walks, or just play in the yard. He would do well with children over the age of 5.
