Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    DOB 12/12/13 Semi is a 60 pound shepherd mix that was born 12/12/13. She was born with an umbilical hernia which was surgically repaired the same day she was spayed and has not been an issue since. Her current owners have had a lifestyle change that takes them away from the home for 12 to 14 hours 6 days of the week. She has developed some get anxiety from being left alone for such extended times. She displays this by sneaking into the garbage or onto counters. She was crate trained as a puppy, but does not do well in a crate for over 12 hours straight with no stimulation or attention. Leaving toys and treat puzzles for her has helped some, ... (Read More)but she craves human interaction. She is very friendly with other dogs, humans and small children. She is a good pet and has been socialized with many different dog breeds and sizes. She loves visiting the dog park and takes hikes on a harness and leash very well. She doesn't bark very much except when she is playing. She understands no, sit, paw, lay down, leave it, stay, and come. She is potty trained. She walks nicely on the leash but will tug for a squirrel or bird or other animals in the distance. She is responsive to a stern no or leave it. She is currently allowed on the furniture and will jump up and settle in, but she does know what 'off' means and will get down when asked. Standard adoption fee is $295 and includes spay/neuter, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email Kathy for an application at safehavendogs@yahoo.com. 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)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Captain came to us as an abandoned dog from Hardeman County Tennessee. He is an incredibly loving pup that wants to 'hug' you and be given attention. The only training issue that has been discovered is that he is a bit of a 'chewer'. His FUR-ever family will need to keep a supply of chew toys to direct this behavior. He is potty trained, super sweet and does not have an aggressive bone in his body! He loves other dogs and kids. We are not sure if he has ever experienced living inside a home because he is unsure of those scary vacuums etc.! He displays this as a bit nervous but shows absolutely no aggression. He will wrap his paws around you ... (Read More)and give you a hug and cuddle. We do not know how such a sweet and loving boy became homeless, but we do know that he will be a joy to his FUR-ever family!

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-22-00011Sadie (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Sadie has been our family pet for 6 years. We are sad to see her go. She is a great guard dog, very loyal, very funloving, plays fetch, jumps to catch her ball, obeys several commands (sit, come, stay, speak, hush, go to bed, back, shake, down). She does not need to be crated, but is crate-trained. She is friendly with our family, but is very nervous around visitors. We moved in September and this has gotten worse. Recently, she bit a visitor in the hand. The person went to the doctor as a precaution, but needed no stiches and the bite was not bad enough to be reported. We have a one year old and cannot risk her being near him. She ... (Read More)has never shown aggression towards him, but there were several times in the past when she nipped our older daughter. Sadie is very trainable, but has many fears and needs to go to someone who can work with her to build her confidence. We took her to a behaviorist who believes she can become a fantastic dog with training and confidence. Please consider taking her if you can give her the time to train her well. We wish we could take the time to train her out of her fears, but with a little one, we just don't have the time and feel it is in the best interest of our son's safety to let her go. (Less)

    Missy is an 8 to 10 year old Shepherd mix that spent her entire life before coming to us tied out in her yard. You would have thought that things would have been better for her when she came to us but Missy tested positive for heartworms. We had her treated and put in a foster home to recover in. She was recently retested and tested NEGATIVE! Missy is back at the shelter but with us being overloaded with dogs and a lot of the kennels doubled up, all dogs are in real danger of being euthanized. Animal Control tries to give us time to get them out but they are coming in too fast and there is no room left. Missy gets along with other dogs ... (Read More)and she likes kids. Please contact the Humane Society at 309-647-5077 or email me if you have any questions about Missy.

    DOB 1/18/12 My name is Allie and I am about 2 %BD years old and I am a very intelligent pup! There have been SO many guesses of what I might be'|Lab, Setter, Shepherd, and Collie are some of them'|I'm not sure of my exact mix, but I am confident that there are beauty and brains in my heritage! I have a great disposition and love kids of every age , including babies. I haven't found a human I don't like, but I really like men. I don't even mind when the mailman comes by! I am completely house trained and have never had an accident in the house (that's because I am smart!). I enjoy my crate, which I think of as my 'room'. It's where ... (Read More)I can go and chill out and it's where I sleep at night'|but I think I would love it if my family would share their bed! I love to play and currently live in a home with a puppy (we LOVE to play together!). I once lived with a cat and left it alone because it didn't seem to like my company. I have learned lots of tricks: sit, sit pretty, lay down, dance, high 5 , high ten and catch. I also give the best hugs! I also love to go on walks and would be excellent as a running companion. I am also attending classes at a wonderful place! Once I graduate, they will offer LIFETIME training for me and my new family!!! I am really excited to find a HOME and have a FAMILY. I have never had people to call my very own, but I am looking forward to it! If you think you might want to meet me, please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com to set up a 'meet and greet'. Standard adoption fee is $295 and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email Kathy for an application at safehavendogs@yahoo.com. 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 have had our home sold out from under us and can no longer keep our 12 year old baby.

She loves laying next to the company of people and nudges for petting. She was living in a house with a backyard, but recently moved to a condo apartment in downtown Chicago. She was with a family who had recently had a child. Prior to this, she snapped at one of the family's younger child when he pulled her tail. She recently moved into this condo because the family could not take her anymore due to the new baby and her experience with the younger child. However, living in a ...

She also gets too excited and tense around the cat as if it is prey. The cat started developing anxiety and this is causing her to start urinating in places outside of her litter. Currently, we have to separate the two when we're at work ( ~9 hours a day ) but the situation is dangerous for both animals. Follows basic commands, but dif%BD%BD%81cult to distract. Nervous around kids. Aggressive towards cats and small animals. Aggressive to dogs in close quarters. (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Luna is a very beautiful, sweet, snuggly and active, nine-year-old, 62-pound, female White German Shepherd with three legs looking for a loving guardian. Luna was found running stray near Lincoln and Kimball in Chicago on May 28th. Despite the fact that she is micro-chipped, all attempts to find her original guardian have been unsuccessful. She was adopted from the Sangamon County Animal Control nine years ago. We don't know what happened to her leg, but running stray, she could easily have been hit by a car. With only three legs, Luna still runs fast! In the home, she's perfectly housebroken, non-destructive and a lovely couch potato who ... (Read More)enjoys resting on the couch. In the yard, she chases squirrels and bunnies, so she's looking for a home without cats, bunnies or even other dogs. Typical of a shepherd, Luna has a big scary bark, but once you get to know her, it is all bluff and bravado. She loves treats and they are certainly the way to her heart; she takes them appreciatively and very gently from your fingers. She is strong and strong-willed; so she's looking for an experienced shepherd-lover to take her under their wing. Luna is healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and fecal-tested. To meet and possibly adopt Luna, please contact her rescuer and foster mom Aggie at adorosz@yahoo.com or 773-980-0250. Her adoption fee of $125 benefits rescued pets.

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-21-00625Wilson (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
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 ... (Read More)a 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. Wilson is very healthy, de-wormed, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, and heartworm-tested. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Wilson, please fill in the online application at http://famousfidorescue.com/rescueforms/machform/view.php?id=26727 and follow up by contacting Gloria at fido@famousfidorescue.com or 773-907-0305. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescues of Famous Fido's. The rescue has dogs of all sizes and ages looking for loving guardians. They spend their days at 5430 N. Clark Street in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. Make an appointment to stop in and meet some of these lovable souls. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Destiny is a three-year-old, 60-pound, smart, affectionate and loyal, female black shepherd/terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Destiny was rescued after surviving a neglectful and abusive puppyhood. She is currently living in a foster home with two Great Danes who she loves to herd, play with and chase. After acclimating to her foster home she has proven mild-mannered and calm. However, she does carry with her the residual fears from her traumatized youth. She is incredibly loving and devoted to her foster dad, and seeks out his attention and approval. She is also very protective of him. Destiny is housebroken and kennel-trained. ... (Read More)Destiny is sometimes nervous in new situations and when meeting new people. However, she's a smart girl who can acclimate if given time and patience. Destiny is also nervous meeting new dogs and requires a gradual introduction; she does best with dogs her size and larger. She does not do well with small dogs, cats, rabbits, etc. Like most dogs, Destiny loves routine '| her morning belly rubs, playing with her favorite Great Dane friend and going for walks. She gets nervous with change. So, Destiny is looking for an experienced and patient dog-lover preferably with another large dog to give her the consistency and calm life in which to thrive. If you'd like to meet and possibly adopt Destiny, please fill out an adoption application at http://www.acaringplacehs.org/ and follow up by contacting the rescue group directly at acaringplace@comcast.net or 630-375-7976.

Rescue Me ID: 13-11-25-00538Capone (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Capone is a handsome, affectionate, playful, active and energetic, two-year-old, 65-pound, brindle and white, male American Bulldog/German Shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian. Capone has such great ears that his nickname is Bat Dog. The poor guy got off to a very rough start to his life; he and his littermates almost succumbed to Parvo. The vet chose to treat the sick puppies with the antibiotic Baytril which helped Capone fight infection, but damaged his hips. So, by the age of 18 months, he had surgery on both hips. You'd hardly know it now because he's still a happy, playful guy who gets the zoomies '| runs, jumps and plays! ... (Read More)Capone is living in a foster home where he is perfecting his housebreaking. He's 90% there! He already knows the commands sit and down and walks nicely on leash. He's also great in the car. He is a very loyal and loving dog who is looking for an experienced dog-lover who can deal with a fearful and protective dog. Capone does best with someone who will work with him and give him structure. Capone can be a bit dog selective. So, he'd be great as the only dog in your world, or he could live with another dog, but it's got to be the right dog. He is currently sharing his foster home with two Rottweilers with whom he gets along. He has not been cat-tested. To meet and possibly adopt Capone, please contact the K94Keeps Rescue at info@k94keeps.org or 312-221-9285. Capone is now healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. His adoption fee of $250 includes professional training sessions, and benefits the rescued dogs of K9 4 Keeps Rescue. (Less)
