German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Wilson is a handsome, tall, loyal, and very strong, eight-year-old, 70-pound, male, shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian. Wilson was living with an elderly woman who passed away in her home. Sadly, he was found days later in the home with her dead body. He was brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control where he was almost euthanized. Lucky for him, Famous Fido's came to his rescue. Once you know Wilson, he is such a loving and smart dog. He is full of tail wags and kisses for those he adores. He is extremely protective of his people and afraid of those that he does not know, so you can just imagine how petrified he was in a cage in a ... (Read More)crowded shelter. The woman Wilson lived with was a recluse and a hoarder, so she had no visitors and Wilson had no exposure to anyone but his best friend. Wilson would do best with an experienced and patient dog-lover willing to continue his training. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-10-03-00226Aki-so sweet!! (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    In regards to again, something really do get finer with time. As Eartha Kitt once said, 'Aging has a wonderful beauty and we should have respect for that.' Couldn't agree more, think of all the things in our lives that are better with age: wisdom, blue jeans, whiskey and wine, empathy, cast iron pans, love, and of course memories-and so much more! Let's put dogs on that list, there is nothing like the love of an old dog, they have come to appreciate the finer things in life as well. Nothing as sweet as a long nap in the sun, a comfy bed, a leisurely stroll thru the neighborhood, a warm meal, a belly rub or scratch behind the ears, and of ... (Read More)course the sound of your footsteps entering the room, priceless. Aki had all of that, in fact her family said she was the BEST. She loves everyone, was raised around other dogs, cats, kids and is a happy wiggly girl. It is sad they had to give her up but things change, they ended up working long hours and sweet Aki ended up being left alone for very long hours. They did want her to have a home that would appreciate this very special girl. Aki is 13 years old but in good shape, a little stiff in the joints, but hey, aren't we all eventually! She is very housebroken and incredibly well mannered. The shelter staff that took her in fell in love with her, Aki is a very, very special girl. We want to help her on her journey to find that new love where another family can appreciate this sweet l' girl and she will return that love ten fold! She is a big girl, about 80 pounds, perfect for snuggling for those long winter months we know are coming! Her adoption fee is $99, or a donation would be great. We have plenty of food, treats and some warm coats to send with Aki to begin her next chapter!! Please email Kristine at joysparrows@gmail.com. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-22-00391Thor (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Meet Thor! He's an 8 mo- 1 yr old beautiful and playful Shepard mix puppy. We don't know much about his past, but it seems like it was a bit rocky as he was picked up as a stray. He loves attention but needs a home with patience. He is VERY treat motivated so he's caught on to house breaking very quickly. He loves all kinds of toys, bones and ropes and is not aggressive over his toys or food, nor does he chew on things he shouldn't. He loves taking walks and does well on a leash but can use some extra help when distractions come along. He loves people and is very friendly but only wants to cuddle when he's ready to. He loves all dogs but ... (Read More)he's a bit too playful for small dogs. We think Thor may have been left in crates too long that were too small for him based on some of the scars on his body so he does have some anxiety over his crate that a kong gets him through. Thor is talkative but if he's 'talking' to you, he either needs to go out or needs to play. Thor's ideal home: high energy with someone who likes the outdoors, running, hiking, etc. and another high energy dog that can keep up with his playful demeanor. He loves all things water and would do best in a home with a fenced yard where he can be supervised. He is very smart but can be stubborn when he's still in the mood to play so patience is a must. He is eager to please and 'good boy' and hot dogs get his tail wagging like no other. He does well with children but he's still learning to take treats nicely and his play can be a bit much for smaller children. At the end of the day, Thor just needs a family that's willing to be dedicated to him as much as he is to them. If you're looking for an active best friend, look no further. Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

    Marky is a handsome, sweet and shy, nine-month-old, 51-pound, male shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian. Marky is wonderful with all other dogs. He loves treats and that should help in his training. Marky was at a high-kill shelter in Texas where he was scheduled to be euthanized due to lack of space, and his shyness. He is a totally different dog when another dog is around. In fact, he needs another dog in his life to make him happy and bring out his best self.

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-17-00275Sheena (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis, Blind, Malnourished 

    Sheena is a 15-year-old, very frail and thin, female black and white shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian as a hospice situation. This senior lady was dropped off at Chicago Animal Control with a younger Dachshund sibling. They were separated when a rescue took the Dachshund but not the senior shepherd. Luckily Sheena was taken in by the Famous Fido Rescue. She has proven to be just fine with other dogs as well as cats. Poor Sheena has had two bouts of pancreatitis since she's arrived in rescue. Rescue staff and volunteers have nursed her back from each illness and now she eats mostly boiled chicken and rice, although she also loves ... (Read More)cheese. Her arthritis slows her down. She is visually impaired and easily startled so she may bite if surprised or frightened, so she's best in a home with tolerant dog-lovers without children. If you'd like to make a donation towards her care and the other special Famous Foster rescues, please click here: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?token=-x2Q2RPzX4vCwQdc9cSu7Vzf53GcLXZJKgskm4-iff6c8VF4_sSttP65ITmce2U0UFgPh0 If you are interested in fostering or adopting Sheena, please fill in the online application at http://famousfidorescue.com/rescueforms/machform/view.php?id=26727 and follow up by calling Gloria at 773-907-0305. Her adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Famous Fido's. Sheena is at the Famous Fido Rescue, 3124 W. Irving Park Road at Troy Street in Chicago, Illinois 60618.

Rescue Me ID: 15-12-22-00172Xandria (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Blind, Deaf 

    We are looking at the possibility of finding a home for our special needs Belgian Malinois/German Shepherd. ..She's about 2 years old and is current on all vaccinations and has been spayed and micro chip. The special home we want for Xandria (she is deaf and blind) requires someone (or one's) who have had experience with special needs animals. Her motor skills are very slow and delayed so that's why we think she's not 100% deaf and blind. Because of her breed and her personality, we feel she is highly trainable - we think she could be a service dog with the right training, however, we do not know the first thing about training these ... (Read More)special needs and is why - the only reason why - we would love to find her someone who is skilled and willing to work with her. We also want a home where her fur-parent(s) are home and will not leave her alone the majority of each day. This was a tough decision, but we currently have 3 other dogs and it's been tough road for us to care for a 4th with special needs...She currently has 2 sisters (a Siberian Husky and an Aussie) and a brother (a Tamaskan). She is used to being around dogs as she also goes to doggy daycare every day while we're at work. When we rescued Xandria, she was mal/undernourished, weak, scared and has blossomed into a normal puppy - a puppy in all aspects of the word. Just because she can't see, doesn't mean she can't find and remember. She is potty trained on the first floor of our home. If she does not know that there is a door to go to in order to do her business she will have an accident - this is the case in our basement.I am not sure she'll ever be potty trained certified, but she doesn't go in her crate and also not on our first floor where she knows the door is to signal us to let her out. She has not been around children but is not aggressive. (I can't stress this enough) who's only sense are smell, taste, and feel .She snaps - which is one way she can find and feel without seeing.So, children who are small or afraid of dogs may not be a good fit - she is not snapping to hurt, she is snapping with her mouth to find. So, if you're considering being Xandria's permanent home, please let me know.We have Photos and You Videos so you could check her out.Thanks! (Less)
