Adult Dogs for Adoption

The following adult dogs are now available for adoption:

Note: The adult dog adoption fee is $300.00. 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.


We have a beautiful young girl coming up from Texas soon. Her name is Daisy and she's a 1-year-old Lab mix. She's up-to-date on her shots and, once she arrives, she'll be micro-chipped. She is a light heartworm positive, and will be treated as soon as possible (Green Pup will pay for her complete treatment). Once she is done with the treatment, she will be spayed. Daisy is sweet, playful, gets along with other dogs, and is extremely friendly. She just wants a safe, loving home to call her own. If you're interested in meeting her once she arrives, please fill out an application on our website. We are also looking for a foster home for her. Please be assured that heartworm is not contagious, so if you have other dogs in the household, there is no need to worry.





Mama is an absolute love bug! We believe she is a Shepherd/Great Dane mix who is around 3 years old. She enjoys walks and, after she is done, she will stand in front of you for a hug. She gives lots of kisses and has very soulful eyes. She's very quiet and will just stand at the door when she wants to go out. She loves to be with people and her favorite spot is on her bed with her foster brother and a couple of cats. As you can see from her pictures, she does have a scar on her head that will probably be permanent. We have no idea how she got it. Mama is up-to-date on her shots and will be microchipped and spayed in the near future.




This is Sophie, a sweet German Shepherd mix. She's a Texas girl who has been through a lot in her short life. She's around a year old, is up-to-date on shots, spayed and microchipped. She's looking for a wonderful family, with no other animals, to love her.






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!




Meet Chocolate. This boy is stunning! Our best guess is that he's a Lab/Shepherd/Catahoula mix couch-potato. He'll be arriving on Oct. 22nd and is looking for a wonderful family to love him to pieces. Chocolate is around 2-years-old, up-to-date on his shots, neutered and will be micro-chipped once here. Please go to our website to fill out an application if you are interested in adopting him. WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR A FOSTER FOR THIS SWEET BOY.



Sweet Caramel. Such a good boy! Caramel is a little over 2-years-old and is just the sweetest boy! He's friendly, curious, adores being petted, and just loves to give you kisses. He gets along well with other dogs and humans, both big and small. He's a Lab/Terrier mix. Caramel has been waiting a long time for his forever family. Why not contact Green Pup Shelter today and see if you are the perfect family for him?

Bella is something! She's beautiful, sweet, happy to be with you, and so playful with other dogs. She's serene, keeps her cool, full of curiosity. She's been around cats and behaved marvelously. Bella is up-to-date on shots, spayed and micro-chipped. She seems to be potty-trained and will be very easy to train. Come meet her. She's ready for her forever home!





Bruce, who is a 5-year-old Lab/Australian Shepherd mix was abandoned on the south side of Chicago. His family literally left him behind like an old piece of furniture. It is apparent that he was used as a fighting dog because he bares the scars. But, in spite of where he came from and what has been done to him, he has come out of it with a great temperament! He loves other dogs, kids, and adores women. He's such a nice boy! He is looking for his forever home!




Bruce 4

Caramel 2

Caramel, who is around 2 years old and about 18 pounds, is a real cutie! He was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Texas and will soon be arriving in the Chicago area. As to breed, that is a complete guess. He's on the smaller side, so he could be a Chihuahua mix with maybe some kind of terrier, maybe even some Lab. All we know is that he is way too cute!

This is Gus, a Chow / Shepherd / Retriever mix. He's around 4 years old and a bit overweight - now on a diet. He came to us from Texas and is in boarding. We would love to find him a forever home, but if that is not possible, a foster home would be a great start. He is dog-selective so it would be better to be the only animal in the home or to have a meet-and-greet with the resident dog ahead of time. He is neutered and up-to-date on his shots. He's wonderful with humans and just wants to be loved. It broke my heart to have to leave him in boarding. As I was driving away, I saw him looking after my car as he whined. Will you please give this big, beautiful boy a chance?
