I have two speeds – fast and faster! I love to play ball and with some training I could be a great running partner. If you have an active lifestyle and you’re looking for a dog who wants to join you in your athletic escapades, I’m your guy.

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

Kids: Ages 15+
Dogs: Not for me – I want you all to myself!
Cats: No thanks!

Mia

I am a real love bug and will let you know right away how much I love your company by wiggling my whole body along with my tail. I could live in a home with the right dog, but I would really prefer to be your special princess. I have a little grey on my muzzle but I am only 5 years old.

Size: 50 lbs.
Energy level: Medium to high
Kids: Older—I love to jump!
Dogs: No thanks
Cats: Yes!

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!

Size: 50 lbs.
Energy level: Medium
Kids: Ages 15+
Dogs: Nope, I want you all to myself!
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

Colin

The volunteers here at the shelter keep trying to figure out what kind of dog I am, but one thing they all agree on is that I am a handsome guy. I have a lot of energy and am pretty strong, so I’m learning how to walk nicely on a leash but it is a work in process. We’ll get along better if you are not a first-time dog owner and you’ve had some experience with big strong guys like me.

Size: 50 lbs.
Energy level: High

Lulu – in foster

I am a tiny little thing, but I haven’t figured that out yet. I think I’m as big as the other dogs here at the shelter and I won’t hesitate to let everyone know. I am 9 years old but have the energy of a much younger dog. Let’s go on long walks together and then I’ll follow you around wherever you go. I am not exactly a lap dog, but I love being near you!

Size: 12 lbs.
Energy level: High
Kids: Older & respectful
Dogs: No
Cats: No

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!

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

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!
