Rescue Me ID: 16-08-26-00374Buddy (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Buddy is a very sweet, tail-waggingly happy, energetic and fun, four-year-old, 48-pound, male, tri-color one-eyed hound/shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian. Buddy loves other dogs! However, he does have a strong prey drive so he's not good with cats or other small animals. He 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. He also loves walks and jogs. He already knows the commands sit and down and takes treats very gently from your fingers. He is housebroken and crate-trained; he's also good in the car. Once Buddy has had enough ... (Read More)exercise, he's a really great dog. He's gentle, loving and calm in the home. He actually loves when you sing to him. He could fetch a stick for hours if you let him. He's probably best in a home with teens and adults who enjoy an active lifestyle. Buddy is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, de-wormed, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. Buddy lost an eye due to an injury years ago, but he gets around just fine. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog. If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting him, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net or 708-224-1900. He is being fostered in Chicago, Illinois. (Less)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Terra is our beloved dog that we have had for over five years. We are no longer able to care for her and need to find a home that loves the GSD breed and has experience with dog aggression. Terra is not aggressive with people - just other dogs. In fact, she loves people. She has not been around small children, so I would not recommend a house with small children. Older children are fine, however, Terra needs consistency in her handling, so I recommend a house with adults or with a person(s) who will be committed to her handling. She will thrive with a person or people who give her lots of love, affection, and attention - BUT also ... (Read More)disciplines and corrects bad behaviors.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Drake, like this Canadian rap superstar namesake, is quite the hit with the ladies. A handsome, medium-sized shepherd mix, Drake is an affectionate, tolerant, happy-go-lucky dog who only needs one warm look and a goofy smile to make the dames fall over him! Drake was found by some concerned citizens running loose in the woods. He was never reclaimed, but someone else's loss might be your gain! Drake is about 3 years old, and he's got all those adult dog behaviors on lock - he's housetrained, active but mellows out, and friendly with people big and small. He's a very vocal player, so it takes a bit of getting used to when he whines and growls ... (Read More)while tossing his toy around. It's all talk, though - Drake wants nothing more than to have a human buddy to play with! He is not comfortable with other dogs and cats, likely from not being introduced to them when he was a puppy. Drake will have to be a solo dog, but his good temper and playful spirit are more than enough love for the right family with children of all ages. He'd prefer an experienced home where he can get some training and leadership. (Less)

    This is Rocky. He is 8 years old and is in great need of a good home. He was kept on a chain (used for breeding purposes) for the first 5 years of his life, without love or attention. He came to my parents house as a temporary home to avoid being euthanized. My parents worked a lot with him. For the first month or two he would run and try to hide when they went into his pen. With patience and kindness, he soon trusted them and was a loving, sweet dog that loves to play fetch, give kisses and get attention. Unfortunately, he showed aggressive towards their old three-legged male dog and had to be kept up in a pen. However, he is great ... (Read More)with female dogs. He has also shown aggression (growling) towards strangers coming up to the house. As he is not compatible to other male dogs and unexpected visitors, my parents have been trying to rehome him for a long time. He is great with kids and adults. He is better with women than men but in any case he would need someone who was willing to work with him and be patient until he trusts and bonds with them. He would be perfect for a single woman that was wanting a loyal, loving companion dog and security. (Less)

Even though she is crate trained, she likes to sleep with her people at night. She loves her chew toys, bones and children. Since she doesn't realize her ...
