Adult Dogs for Adoption
The following adult dogs are now available for adoption:
Note: The adult dog adoption fee is $325.00. Adult dogs are those aged 1 to 7 years old. This fee helps defer the cost of vaccinations and other medical needs. It also helps with food costs, and supplies.
This young boy, Moseley, is very energetic and sweet. He is a beautiful, white and black Pointer/Hound mix (our best guess) who came to us from Georgia. He is looking for the perfect family who can give him a safe and loving home. He is up-to-date on shots, and will be neutered and microchipped soon. We estimate him to be just over a year old. Moseley is heartworm positive, but will begin his treatment immediately. Heartworm is very curable. Any questions or concerns, please contact us.
Tiffany is the sweetest baby! The person who transported her to us from Georgia fell in love with her and, if he didn't have so many dogs of his own, would probably have kept her. That is how great this girl is. Tiffany is spayed, up-to-date on her shots, and microchipped. She gets along wonderfully with other dogs and loves people. She is a curious girl who likes to explore and lets her nose lead her. She is quiet -- I did not hear her bark, whimper, or whine the whole half hour it took me to get her to her foster home! Tiffany is crate and potty trained. We are looking for an adopter that either has another young dog in the home or an active family -- Tiffany needs the companionship. When last weighed, she came in at 52 lbs. We believe she is between 1 and 2 years old, so she is fully grown. She'll make a lucky family a wonderful dog!
Juliet, a Boston Terrier mix, is a sweet dog who has been adopted twice and returned twice. One family did not have time for her, and the other gave it all of four days before bringing her back because she was "too shy". She IS shy at first. She warms up to females quickly, but it takes longer for men. She gets along with some dogs but not others, so potential adopters should take note. Juliet is really very affectionate once she gets over her shyness. She loves to snuggle and sleep with her humans. If taken out on a schedule, she will cooperate and seems housetrained. She also has amazing jumping ability so keep counters and tables clear. Juliet is about 26 pounds, is spayed, and is up-to-date on all shots. Juliet will take a couple of weeks to adapt, so adopters will need patience.
Daisy is a sweet, wild child. She is a 1 1/2-year-old Lab/Pit Bull mix. She is loving and adores other dogs and humans. Daisy is playful and is extremely friendly. She just wants a safe, loving home to call her own. We believe she has had a litter of puppies in the past. As with many Texas dogs, Daisy is heartworm positive, but has begun her treatment. Once she is done with the treatment, she will be spayed. Come meet her, give her some cookies (which she absolutely loves) and watch her figure out what all that white stuff on the ground is!
Where's Spot? Well, right here! Our newest cutie is Spot, a one-and-a-half year-old Texas transplant, possibly a Pointer/Boxer mix. He's a real lover! We think he used to belong to someone because all he wants is attention and love. He gets along well with other dogs, he's playful and friendly, and he has lots of energy. Spot is up-to-date on all his shots, he's micro-chipped, and is neutered. He's a cuddler, a 43-pound baby who's a lap dog! He spent several hours on a volunteer's lap while at a farmer's market. We think he is easily trainable and just needs a loving family to start teaching him some commands. WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR A FOSTER FOR THIS SWEET BOY!
Beamer was saved from a hoarding situation. He was one of 12 dogs living in a home with no humans. He is a survivor! His foster mom says he loves people, though he has to get to know you first. He has no interest in other dogs and will walk right by them, but he does like cats. Once he's comfortable with you, he wants to sit on your lap and fall asleep. He knows basic commands, is housebroken and is not destructive at all. We have not had him around kids yet. Beamer needs work walking on the leash. He does take treats gently out of your hands. He is a special, wonderful boy who is very smart and willing to learn and please. He is estimated to be around 4 years old and is up-to-date on shots.
Beautiful Charlie came to us from Texas where he had a tough life. The vet has estimated his age to be around 6 and we believe he is St. Bernard/Fox Hound mix. We believe he was abused, as he watches where your hands are all the time, as if waiting to be hit. He does take cookies gently, though. There are what look to be burn marks on his back and scars on his head and face. He is nervous, and shakes until he knows you. He enjoys walks on the leash and does well at it. At the moment, we would not recommend a home with another dog as there needs to be more testing done. Charlie does need a foster or adopter with plenty of experience who understands him and has patience and time to dedicate to him. He has so much potential and looks at you with such soulful eyes. He is heartworm positive, but is undergoing treatment for it. Please give him a chance. With love, trust, and time he will flourish.
Matt is a 4 to 5-year-old Hound/Beagle mix who came from an abuse/hoarding situation. His foster mom in Georgia said that he is sweet and gentle. He is up-to-date on his shots, neutered, microchipped, and weighs around 35-40 pounds. He gets along wonderfully with other dogs, children, and adults. If interested in Matt, please contact us. This beautiful boy deserves a wonderful family to call his own! He will be arriving in Illinois in a couple of weeks.
Cash, who is a 7-year-old Lab mix, has a very sweet soul! He likes to roll on his back and have his tummy rubbed. He knows his basic commands of sit, down, stay. If you let him, he will crawl up on the couch and snuggle with you and will also, if invited, hop in bed with you! He loves his toys and carries them around with him wherever he goes! Cash needs a companion that will be home all day. He can get very anxious if there is a lot of commotion around the house, so he would do better with older children, and a quiet atmosphere. Cash would prefer to be an only furbaby. He loves getting all the attention! Not sure how he is with cats.
Our wish for Cash is that he can find a strong, compassionate owner (pack leader), who has the time to train him. He is very smart and knows right from wrong, but unfortunately, he has not had an owner who has been able to give him the time and love he so deserves and desires.
