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

    Meet Vivian! Lab/Shepherd mix Approx. 2 yrs old Lab/Shepherd Mix 65 lbs. Vivian is a sweet girl who traveled here from TN. Here is what her foster mom has to say about her: Vivian is my first foster baby and I couldn't have had a better experience! She would have been my foster failure but I am not home enough and she deserves to be with someone who is able to spend more time with her and have a nice fenced in yard to run in and get plenty of exercise. Vivian is a 2 year old German Shepard/Black Lab mix and weighs about 65 lbs. She is spayed and is completely housetrained, takes correction very well, knows commands of sit and lay ... (Read More)down and loves to play catch with a tennis ball. She loves car rides and sits in the car like a little lady. She gets along well with other dogs as well as my 2 cats. She does very well in her crate during the day and also at bedtime. She sleeps through the night without a sound (except some snoring). She is somewhat protective of the house and will bark if she hears strangers. She loves to sit next to me, or on me and watch tv. (a very loving girl!) We are working on and she does need some training on staying close and not pulling when going for a walk but she is smart and will learn quickly. Vivian is a very healthy girl and has a beautiful, shiny coat. Whoever adopts her will be very lucky and they will fall in love with her quickly as I have and I'm sure she will love them back 110%. 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)

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-01-00422Lucy (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed 

    Lucy came to us recently from a shelter down south, and is now ready to find her forever home. She is housebroken and crate trained. She is also comfortable during car rides and walks nicely on a leash. Although she has made great progress, she is still a little timid around new people, loud noises, and quick movements. She will be a great family dog for someone who is willing to work with her to build her confidence. Due to her timidness, she would not be the best dog for a family with young children. She is great with other dogs and would love to have a playmate in her new home. If you are interested in meeting Lucy, please visit ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-11-30-00191Lilly (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lilly is a well-behaved, perfectly housebroken and extremely affectionate 8-year-old, 47-pound, gentle, strong, loving and friendly, chubby red and white Boxer-mix looking for a loving guardian. She is such a happy, wonderful girl whose nub of a Boxer tail is always wagging and she actually smiles. Lilly lived with a 78-year-old woman who has gone into hospice care. Sadly, Lilly was never socialized with other dogs or cats, but is absolutely wonderful with people. She even gave me sweet kisses during our photo shoot. She is an expert cuddler! She is accustomed to having someone around more often than not since her mom was home and didn't ... (Read More)go out much except for taking her on her three walks a day. Lilly would make a fabulous family dog - especially if she has a yard to play in. She just LOVES to play ball. She can be reactive on leash when she sees another dog, but that's easy to handle if you cross the street, or turn around. She's easily manageable - especially when you redirect her with treats. But probably not best in a high-rise apartment if you have to share an elevator with other dogs. She knows the command sit and takes treats ever so gently and appreciatively from your fingers. Lilly is healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, and micro-chipped. To meet and possibly adopt her, please contact sheri@petraits.com for an adoption application. She is currently living in Chicago's Albany Park neighborhood. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits rescued pets. (Less)

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.

He doesn't have a mean bone in his body, but he is very shy. He is very healthy, neutered, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested negative. ...
