ADOPT A DOG

 

Miley

I’m Miley, and I really deserve a forever home after everything I’ve gone through! I was brought to the shelter in a rough condition. I was extremely overweight (I’ve lost a lot of weight and am still working hard!). We can’t be sure, but I was likely used as a breeding dog and once my body couldn’t handle anymore litters, I was abandoned. When I went to the vet, they discovered I also had heartworm. Despite all of this neglect from humans, all I want is attention. I love to snuggle and make the best nap buddy in the world. I’m a very good girl; I might jump on big humans out of excitement, but I know to stay down and give gentle kisses to kids. After powering through the difficult, stressful process of heartworm treatments, I am ready to be adopted!

Size: 60 lbs.
Energy level: Medium
Kids: Yes!
Dogs: With the right fit!

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, especially in this winter weather. 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

Floyd

I’m Floyd and I am totally the man of your dreams! I’m five years old and have a sweet disposition. I love every single person I meet and I’m good at keeping all four paws on the four when people say hi to me. Making my human happy is my favorite thing to do so I appreciate when they show me what they like. I also have wonderful leash manners when I’m walked with my harness, but rabbits and squirrels still make me want to chase them! I may be 60 lbs, but I’m the best lap dog in town-especially if we’re watching a movie on the couch!

Leonardo

My name is Leonardo. I came to the shelter because my previous owners couldn’t afford the medical care I needed. The shelter took me to get an x-ray, and even the veterinarians were shocked at what they found. My intestines were all the way in my chest! My organs were all in the wrong place! I had a long, intensive surgery where the doctors put everything back where it should be and spent weeks recovering. Now, I’m an energetic boy who is steadily putting on weight! I’m a very sweet boy with good manners; I get along with everyone I meet! I’m a little more cautious around other dogs; I didn’t have socialization skills before I came to the shelter. But the people at the shelter have been helping me feel comfortable with other dogs and learn to play. I need an experienced owner and family that can work to help continue my training. If you want to meet me, please come by the shelter!

Size: 45 lbs. (and steadily gaining!)
Energy level: Medium to high
Kids: Yes!!
Dogs: With the right fit

Marshall

Looking for an energetic puppy to add some excitement to your life? That’s me! I’m Marshall and I’m about 7 months old. I have the sweetest face and love to be around people. Since I’m a puppy, I can get a little mouthy and jump on people when I’m excited. I’ll need some training, but I am eager to learn! I like long walks and am working on my leash manners and my skills with other dogs. Adopt me, and we can go on plenty of adventures together… and then I’ll fall asleep in your lap.

Shaggy Dog

Hi, I’m Shaggy! I’m a 10 year old senior who was dropped off at the front door of the shelter in a crate and left until volunteers found me. I can be a little shy around new people but warm up quickly, especially if food and belly rubs are involved! I can be a bit quirky, for example, I don’t like my paws touched and I’m nervous to receive medical attention since I’m not used to it. I won’t be around for many years but I want to make the most of what I have and I need your help!

Size: 35 lbs.
Energy level: Low to medium
Kids: No young kids
Dogs: With the right fit
Cats: No thanks

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!

Size: 50 lbs.
Energy level: High
Kids: No
Dogs: Possible with the right fit

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.
Energy level: High
Kids: Yes
Dogs: Yes!

Rocky – In Foster

I’m Rocky, and once you see my sparkling smile, you’ll fall in love. I’m a young, energetic dog who loves to go on long walks. After a walk, I like to pretend I’m a lap dog.  The volunteers here can’t get enough of my velvety red, brindle fur. I’m looking for a family that will take me on adventures and then watch tv with me on a couch. I love to play, but I’m so gentle with people. I’m currently being fostered; email EASadoptions@gmail.com to arrange a time to meet me!

Size: 50 lbs.
Energy level: Medium to high
Kids: Older

Rio – In Foster

My name is Rio and I am really cute, but I am going to need an owner who is willing to be very patient with me.  It takes a little time for me to get to know new people, and when I am overwhelmed I get scared and I growl.  The volunteers here say I need an experienced dog owner who will pay attention to my signals and help me gain confidence.  I am young and energetic and I really love to go for long walks, and once you’ve gained my trust I like jumping up in your lap to snuggle.

Size: 12 lbs.
Energy level: Medium
Kids: No
Dogs: Yes!
Cats: Not yet tested

Tucker

I’m Tucker, and aren’t I just stunning? The volunteers here sure think so. They especially love my velvet ears and curly tail. I’m a young boy with lots of energy. I love to play with toys and go for long walks. I may be a goof at times, but I actually have very refined tastes! I love wearing fancy sweaters and coats in the cold weather, and my favorite type of music is classical music; the second I hear it, I get so relaxed and just want to sit and enjoy the melodies. With people, I am as affectionate as they come and just want to snuggle! There’s nothing I love more than stretching out on a couch, looking into your eyes and getting a belly rub. I’m looking for a home with an experienced dog owner who can handle a strong boy like myself. Sound like you? Come meet me!

Size: 65 lbs.
Energy level: High
Kids: Older
Dogs: No thanks
Cats: No

Tyro – In Foster

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. I’m currently in foster; if you’d like to meet me, email EASadoptions@gmail.com!

Size: 45 pounds
Energy level: High

Smokey – In Foster

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! I’m currently being fostered off-site, so email EASadoptions@gmail.com if you’d like to meet me!

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

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!
