Hello my name is Nala, I would be so lucky to have you as my forever home. I'm a goofy bundle of joy and would make a great companion for your entire family! Nala hasn’t known many people who loved her as much as she loved them. Maybe she tries too hard. A lick on the hand, a cock of the head – she doesn’t even know she’s being cute. She’s just trying to say, "Thank you. Thank you for loving me back.” Nala is very well behaved as she knows commands such as sit, paw, down, and come. She is also a puppy with energy and loves to play with toys and naw on bones. Nala is great with others dogs and children, but is not real fond of cats. She can be a big lap dog just as much as a great playful companion for anyone. Please contact us today! Nala would love to meet you!

Rosie is a beautiful, adult English Bulldog mix. She has a larger-than-life personality! She is a pleaser and wants to be with her human all the time. She is playful and loves walks. Rosie was pulled from a high kill shelter in Georgia. We believe she has had many litters. as Georgia is the Bulldog state. Do you have room in your heart for Rosie?? She does for you. We believe she is between 5 to 7 years old. Just a guestimate. Come meet her today!

Bruce, who is a 5-year-old Australian Shepherd/Mastiff 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


Lieutenant is a very cute hound mix who is looking for a loving home! He turns to butter when you pet his neck! He is very good with obedience: heel, sit, stay, paw, down, leave it, and place commands. He is create trained and house broken and for the most part is happy just having someone near him. He does not jump on new friends that come over and is excited to see new people. He is good with kids and is good on all types of leashes/collars. He is e-collar trained (but only used for recall). Lieutenant loves being on the treadmill either with me or with another dog. He loves to fetch! Lieutenant does have some separation anxiety, and he is anxious or nervous around unfamiliar dogs (but not aggressive). He does get along great with our other dog, but not so much with new or other excited dogs. Lieutenant is looking for his forever home!

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!

C.J. is a beautiful female Lab mix who is coming to us from South Carolina. She has lived all of her life in the shelter and it's high time she found a forever home!

Mason and Maddox

Mason (red) and Maddox (black) are King Cavalier and Poodle mixes (Cavapoo) who are looking for a forever home together! They are neutered males who are 5 years old (they were born on Valentine's Day). They are microchipped, cage trained and stay together in the same cage (which you will get when you adopt them). They are healthy, very happy and easy to love, and they love all people and kids! They are hypo allergenic and easily maintained. They love the outdoors ... they have a mission to chase the squirrels in the yard and will also play and wrestle together! The two are litter mates and cannot be separated. They go to bed by 7:30 p.m. and wake up around 8 a.m. ... kinda perfect. Overall they are happy and healthy! If interested, please fill out an adoption application.




Blanca is a good girl! This little girl is amazing!! She is crate-trained, housebroken, loves kids, adults, other dogs (but do not touch her bone). Blanca is currently undergoing heartworm treatment. Being a Southern girl from Texas, her past owners did not give her heartworm treatment. She was picked up as a stray. She is interested in everything...and when she tilts her head and those ears stand straight up, she melts my heart! Blanca is on the small side. She is around 43 pounds and is a true Southern lady. She knows commands, loves treats, and is a true sweetheart. Whoever will be giving Blanca her forever home, you can bet she will never leave your side! She will make an amazing addition to some lucky family. She is probably the smartest dog I have ever seen! If interested in adopting Blanca, please fill out an adoption application.
