ADOPT A DOG

 

Soleil

Hi, I’m Soleil! I was found running around loose near the shelter. After a closer look, workers noticed that I had very thin copper wire tied tightly around my neck and I had lost a lot of hair along my back. I got some medical attention and was said to be the easiest patient around! I’m looking good and feeling even better! I love to go for walks and then cuddle up right next to see for some love and attention. If cuddling were a sport, I’d be a professional! I’m just a calm dog looking for my forever home—can it be with you?

Louie

Are you ready for a good time? I’m Louie, and I cannot wait to find my forever family. I’m only a year old, so I really am just a big, goofy puppy. More than anything, I love to play. Because I’m so young, I do need training, but since I’m so eager to please, I’ll make you proud! If you want a dog that’s up for any adventure, come and meet me!

Smokey

Are you looking for a big, silly, handsome goofball that’ll love you forever? I would love to be that dog for you! I’m three years old and my puppy years (and behaviors) are far behind me. While I can be a little nervous around new people, especially men, I’m easily won over with some food and time. I’m a strong boy that enjoys adventurous exercise, like hikes, and then would enjoy a quiet home to unwind in. I’m eager to learn new tricks and am as smart as they come!

Size: 60 pounds
Energy level: Moderate
Kids: Over 15
Dogs: Not for me – I want you all to myself!
Cats: No thanks!

Tyro

I’m Tyro, the sweetest boy you’ll ever meet! I’m just discovering the world, so while I’m already 2, I’m basically a puppy. Wherever I go, I think everyone passing by should stop and say hi to me. I don’t discriminate either; I love other dogs and want to play with them all. I’m not the best at playing though, so I’d need a canine sibling that is a good teacher. All I really need is a loving household with someone who can show me the world and help me with my manners.

Size: 45 pounds
Energy level: High
Kids: Older
Dogs: With the right fit

Scooby

Like the original Scooby Doo, I am hilariously goofy, clumsy, sweet and (sometimes) mischievous. I’m under a year old, so I’ve got that puppy charm! I love attention and giving kisses to all the people I meet. My butt never stops wiggling and my tail never stops wagging. If you want a fun-loving party animal, I’ll be perfect for you! I do need to learn some manners, but I’ll do anything for a Scooby Snack!

Size: 60 pounds

Wilbur

I’m Wilbur, and I’m the definition of a gentle giant. I’m around 80 pounds with the biggest head you’ve ever seen! Despite my size, I truly believe I am a lap dog. If anyone disagrees, I make sure to prove them wrong. While I am gentle with people, I am very strong, so I need an experienced owner who can get me the exercise I need. Yes, that means kicking me off the couch because all I want to do is snuggle. If you’re up for the task and want the best friend you could ask for, come meet me at the shelter!

Size: 80 lbs.
Energy level: Medium to high
Kids: Older, because I’m so big and strong!
Dogs: Nope, I want you all to myself!
Cats: No thanks

Coco

Hi, I’m Coco. Before coming to The Evanston Animal Shelter, I had been chained up outside for years, was only allowed in the garage, and used as a “guard” dog against possible intruders. I was also used to have puppies and when my not-so-great owners decided they wanted to move, they left me behind. While I have every right to hate humans, I don’t. I greet people with a smile, ask for some pets, and if you’re lucky enough, you’ll get some kisses! I am the epitome of a bully breed. I forgive, I love, and I persevere. I deserve a good life in a good home just as much as the next dog! Come foster me through the Evanston Animal Shelter!

Piper – In Foster

Hi! My name is Piper, and I love people!

I’m happiest when there is someone on the couch to snuggle. I enjoy slow, leisurely walks outside, because I like to sniff everything. My first humans didn’t understand how to take care of a diabetic dog. I was 8 pounds when they surrendered me, but now I’m a healthy 13 pounds! I need two measured meals a day, on schedule, followed by an insulin shot; my foster parents call this ‘tummy time’. Because of the diabetes, I don’t see very well in low light, so I may bark and growl at you when you enter the room until I smell you; then I know that I love you! I’m a good girl! I’ve been learning to sit and stay at doors until my human says, “all done”. I also know down, here, no, and paw. I used to know dance too, but then I got hurt. I had hip surgery, and the doctors found a fracture in my bone, so they had to shorten my leg. When I run, I gallop on three legs, but it’s important to make me walk slow so that I’ll exercise my healing leg. When I had surgery, the doctors found five lumps in my breasts. They took them out. One was pre-cancerous, but it’s gone. I’ve had a tough time, but I’m a happy pupper and I’m excited to meet my forever humans! I’m in foster right now, so email EASadoptions@gmail.com to set up a time to meet me!

Ava – In Foster

I’m Ava, a rambunctious puppy who just loves life! I’m only 5 months old, so I will need some training, but I’ve learned sit so well, I do it whenever I can to beg for treats! I have the silliest bat ears and a cute under-bite, which the volunteers here love. I love human affection and giving kisses. I will jump into any open lap. I’m currently getting in my adult teeth, so I’m a little mouthy. If you’re looking for a puppy with a spunky attitude, I’m your girl! I’m learning more manners in a foster home right now, so if you want to meet me, email EASadoptions@gmail.com!

Size: 30 lbs.

Cassius – In Foster

Cassius

Aren’t I the most handsome dog you’ve ever seen? I am a big, strong, two year old boy with a soft heart. I love people and will put my head in your lap when I want attention. When I get excited I can get jumpy and mouthy, so I’d do best with a kind, experienced owner with a calm energy. With some exercise and affection I become a couch potato and will curl up next to you. I can be left alone without chewing up the house and am perfectly house trained. I am being fostered in Chicago, so if you can provide the guidance and love for a rewarding companion like me, contact EASadoptions@gmail.com and make an appointment to meet me.

Size: 65 pounds
Energy level: I can be pretty excitable and have bursts of energy, but after some exercise I like to just hang out.
Kids: No
Dogs: I would prefer a canine sibling!
Cats: No thanks!
