    Meet Mitch!!! Shepherd mix 10-11 weeks old Can you believe the CUTENESS?!? Meet our M pups! They arrived to Safe Haven from Alabama to find their forever homes. The M pups are not only cute, but they are super sweet and friendly. This group of pups is like any typical puppy. They have a lot of energy and love to play. Once they've had their fill of play, they will crash out for a while. Since they are young, they will do well with other dogs. These pups will need a family who has someone home most of the day to continue housebreaking and socialization skills with them. These pups will all make the perfect addition to any family! ... (Read More)Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. 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, 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 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. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-23-00126Lilly & Romeo (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

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

    Romeo and Lilly are a bonded pair looking for their retirement home where they can live life to the fullest and offer their love to a deserving family. These two have been through thick and thin and will need to be adopted together. Both Romeo and Lilly are super sweet and affectionate though they can be a bit stubborn at their ages! :) Most likely from years without any true structure, though they know the basic commands. They could both use work on the leash, though a fenced in yard would be ideal for them. They don't play with toys much but are food motivated so would be relatively easy to continue training! Romeo (short coat) is a ... (Read More)happy and handsome 9 year old German Shepherd. He weighs 82lbs and does have some stiffness in his hips/elbows due to his age. He is currently on pain meds, glucosamine supplement, and fish oil to help with his pain, and he is doing quite well on them. Since being on these, he seems to be more animated and happy! Romeo did have a benign tumor removed while in our care. It is possible that it could have been a predecessor to cancer so any lumps found in the future should be assessed. Romeo is good with females but doesn't seem to get along with other males very well, especially intact males. Lilly (long, dark coat) is a jolly and beautiful 7 year old German Shepherd. She weighs 75lbs and tends to steal her brother's food so strict feeding times would be helpful for this girl. Lilly is a big ol' softy. She is good with other dogs but gets so excited that sometimes she gets in other dog's personal space and may end up getting corrected by other dogs. Both Romeo and Lilly are crate trained and do well in the house. They both take baths very nicely and ride well in the car together - though Lilly hogs up all the space! Romeo and Lilly both do well around cats. Romeo and Lilly would love an older family as young children seem to make them a bit nervous. They would be happy being the only dogs, but with the right dogs they can share. They are looking for their forever home that will love and spoil them. Please visit www.gsdri.org to fill out an application, learn more about the adoption process and fees, and view other dogs available through the German Shepherd Dog Rescue of Iowa. All GSDRI's dogs are adopted as indoor house pets. No permanent outside runs or tie outs are allowed. A fence is strongly encouraged. Every dog is spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm checked. (Less)

Animal ID: 15-001Mahogany (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    North Chicago Animal Control - Beautiful Mahogany is looking for rescue. This sweet girl was passed around between multiple homes until, luckily, she ended up at animal control. She was scared and very insecure as you can imagine. I know that she lived with multiple children in the first (or second home). Because she was so insecure we sent her to spend some time with Big Ed's dog training. This is what Ed has to say about this wonderful dog - Mahogany is 50 lbs. Great with kids and male dogs. She can be bossy. No cats. Fantastic in the car. Loves going to the store. Loves going for walks. Knows her basic directions. Good on leash. Loves ... (Read More)her chew toys. Needs some time to warm up to men but the way to her heart is with treats. And once she warms up she is the sweetest dog you could meet. Mahogany is ready to go to rescue but, because we don't want her to come back to animal control because of what it could do to her being back in a sad situtaiton and because she would be back on the clock, we are paying for her boarding. Sadly, we have spent a tremendous amount of money these past four months on training and boarding for two amazing dogs (the other one was Skipper who found his wondeful forever family!!!) so we don't have the funds to continue after this. Lets find this girl a place with a licensed rescue or an amazing family who wants to open their heart and home. Please contact Dana at 847-894-9796 for information about Mahogany Mahogany will be completely vetted!!!!!! (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Please read entire post Bobby is a 9 month old Alaskan Husky/Shepherd mix who is looking for his forever home. He was transferred from another shelter and is a bit timid but super sweet and will surely come out of his shell with patience . Bobby needs an owner ideally with breed experience, but definitely with patience and understanding. Bobby was adopted out- twice- recently and returned both times due to separation anxiety. His ideal home would be with one person who is home almost all of the time.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed 

    Pretty 'sisters' Diamond (black cattledog/shepherd) and Jane (brindle boxer/lab/hound) are both spayed 8 year olds and have lived together their whole life. Their owner passed away recently so they came to the shelter. We would love to find a home where these girls can stay together. The girls are friendly and playful and walk very nicely on leashes together! Jane and Diamond know how to sit politely! A house with other dogs might be good for them as they used to live with other dogs. Will you give them a loving forever home together? Current location Michigan City, IN.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Beamer was saved form 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 ... (Read More)to be around 4 years old and is up-to-date on shots. (Less)

    UPDATE: GUS IS IN BOARDING. PLEASE, SOMEONE STEP UP TO FOSTER HIM. LET'S FIND HIM A HOME BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS! This is Gus, a shepherd/chow/lab mix. He's around 4 years old and a bit overweight - now on a diet. He came to us from TX 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 ... (Read More)boarding. As I was driving away, I saw him looking after my car as he whined.

    Buddy is a very sweet, energetic and fun, three-year-old, 57-pound, male, tri-color hound/shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian. Buddy is happiest when he has the opportunity to exercise daily. He's not an apartment dog; he'd prefer a home with a yard where he can run and play. Buddy enjoys the enjoys the company of other dogs, but he has a strong prey drive so he is not good with cats or other small animals; he's quite the hunter. Once Buddy has had enough exercise, he's a really great dog. He's gentle, loving and calm in the home. He knows a lot of commands and is very loving to people. He could fetch a stick for hours if you let ... (Read More)him. He is housebroken and crate-trained; he's also good in the car.

Buddy is blind in one eye from a previous injury, but he gets around just fine. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog.

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)
