He is a sweet dog, but has recently become aggressive when we retrieve him. We have small grandchildren and cannot take the chance that he would hurt them. He is a couch potato, completely trained and chipped.

    Hi, my name is Wendy. Part of a litter of 7. We were found in the woods. Many people worked hard to get us to rescue. I am a typical 6 week old puppy, I love to run, play, eat and sleep. I cannot go home until I'm 8 weeks old. New things still scare me at first but I warm up really fast. I'd love another dog to play with, but if not that's ok I will love my people. I need a home that is home most of the day as I need to go out a lot until I'm bigger. If your not ready for my puppy stage please do not take me home. I will chew, have accidents, cry until I learn how to be a great dog. Of your ready for that please give me my new home.

    Meet Bobby. Her bothers and sisters and Mom were saved from the woods. Many people worked hard to save this group. Bobby is a typical puppy. She eats a lot, plays at and sleeps most of the day. She is a very curious pup, and tends to venture off checking things out. She is only 6 weeks, so cannot go home until she turns 8 weeks old. She would like to have a home where someone is home all day, or only gone a few hours at most.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    All Duke wants for Christmas is a real home who will love and care for him forever! Duke was in a kill shelter out of time, they had held him 4 months hoping someone would adopt or rescue him because the shelter workers liked him so much. He had been picked up as a stray and was not claimed. A friend contacted us and we couldn't say no, even though large, black and older often means he will be passed over for adoption. He is a very handsome big boy, has very large bones, but was only 80 to 85 pounds when we rescued him when he should be 100. He is now 94 and gaining steadily. We had him neutered, had a couple benign lumps removed, and his ... (Read More)teeth cleaned. The vet guessed him to be about 8 years old and said his teeth were in great shape. He was treated for heart worms, is current on vaccinations and microchipped. He is housebroken, crate trained and a quiet great dog. I don't know how he is with children. He likes to be boss over the food and toys with other dogs so being an only dog, or with a happy submissive dog would be best. He would lay down to play with our puppies and was very sweet, but didn't want them to come near him when he was eating. He is fine with cats. He really doesn't know any commands that I know of but would love someone who would like to teach him some fun tricks. He loves to fetch and play with his favorite big kong toy. He's well housebroken. Even though he's older he can play like a puppy. Vet's phone number you use currently or in the past is required to adopt for a reference. We have 30 rescued dogs of all sizes all praying for a real home! Please do not consider a dog for Christmas unless you want a dog as a family member for its whole life. (Less)

    Bobbi and his brother George are 5-6 month old Corgi mix puppies. They arrive in Illinois on 11/29 and are available for our 'Foster to Adopt Program'. Once approved for adoption, your family has a chance to foster Bobbi to ensure he is the right addition to your family. The brothers were surrendered to a shelter in Alabama when they were just puppies; they spent almost 2 months at the shelter until we were able to commit to their rescue. Both are sweet, outgoing, friendly pups. They have the typical Corgi body but clearly have additional heritage mixed in too! Since they are puppies they will need to continue their training. We realize ... (Read More)the day before Thanksgiving is a difficult day to commit to fostering however fostering is in spirit of the very holiday we are celebrating. Let's give these puppies something to be Thankful for. During the foster period we supply crate, food, toys, leash and collar%BD'%BD| You supply the love and help Bobbi adjust to your home. Standard adoption fee is $295 and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. Puppies require a home where there will be someone available to care for 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. 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. (Less)

    8 month old, beautiful, very smart, playful and affectionate. Loves human contact. Has had obedience training. Learns very quickly with treats. Has been aggressive with me. I am the female in the house. Seems to be more submissive with men. I have 2 grandchildren, ages 2 and 6 months, and do not want to take any chances with their safety. I love this dog and it breaks my heart to have to find him another home. We got him at 11 weeks of age from Petland. He has never been mistreated in any way. My 25 year old son lives with me and is very attached to him, but as I said, I cannot feel comfortable with him around small children. I think he ... (Read More)would do better with adults only. Needs a lot of attention and exercise. Loves car rides and the outdoors. (Less)

He is great around other dogs and loves to play with them. He has never been around any cats so I am not sure how he could do. He is also great around kids, does not mind if they climb on him or pull his tail. When a person zeek does not know walks into the house he will bark at them until you reassure him that it is okay.

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! 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 can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

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)

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 

    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.

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.

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.

    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.

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.

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)
