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!

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!

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 to set up a time to meet me!


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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

Tucker – In Training

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!

Cassius – In Foster


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 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!
