ADOPT A DOG

 

RUBY

Seeking urgent foster!

I was surrendered to the shelter after my babies were taken from me too soon, and I was still pretty upset about it. Since then, I’ve connected with the volunteers nicely and I’m looking forward to finding a family of my own that will give me all the attention I deserve! I have a very sweet demeanor and the volunteers think I have the potential to have doggy friends once I recover from losing my puppies.

Size: 50 lb.
Energy level: Medium
Kids: Yes, please!
Dogs: Possibly with some training
Cats: Not for me!

COCO

My name is Coco and my life has been an interesting journey so far. My early years were spent at the end of a chain and when my “owners” moved, I was left behind. Thankfully I was found and brought to the shelter where the volunteers were patient and kind and taught me how to accept love because I was never properly socialized. During a physical at the vet, it was discovered that I had a life-threatening tumor and doctors said there was just a 50/50 chance I would survive surgery. So instead, I went to a foster home where I got to enjoy several months of lounging around on couches and beds, living the good life indoors, which I had never gotten to do before. However, my condition seemed to get worse with bouts of inflammation and periods of temporary discomfort. Unfortunately, my foster mom suddenly had to move out of state and I came back to the shelter where they decided to try the surgery since I had finally gotten my shot at life in a warm home. But here’s the good news: I’m still here, my tumors were benign, and I’m ready to permanently close that chapter of my life! I’m looking for a family to start my new life with — one that will understand I have some quirks from my past and will teach me the rules of the house so that I know what is expected of me, and also give me time to warm up. I’m super silly though, I love to carry my pizza toy around with me everywhere I go (yes, even to potty), and I promise I’ll make you laugh with my random lip-smacking and piggy grunts. And I guarantee that it will be love at first sight when you meet me!

Size: 60 lb.
Energy level: Low to medium
Kids: Ages 10+
Dogs: No thanks
Cats: No thanks

DWIGHT

I’m a big young dog who is always looking for the next fun thing to do. I love to get in good exercise every day, so I need a family who will keep me active. I can be a little timid around other dogs, but I’m working on it! My life was pretty rough before coming to the shelter, but I’m hoping my next chapter is brighter! Do you have space for an 80 lb lovebug?

Size: 80 lb., but may grow some more
Energy level: Medium to high
Kids: Preferably older until I learn some more manners
Dogs: With the right fit
Cats: Possibly

MICHAEL

I’m a big guy with the best smile! I’m still coming out of my shell, but I love working on obedience and am learning to be the perfect gentleman on a leash. The shelter stresses me out a lot, but as soon as you take me home I turn into a cuddly goofball who loves to play and will shamelessly ask for belly rubs! If you’re looking for a love bug who wants to be the only dog in your life, come meet me!

Size: 80 lb.
Energy level: Medium to high
Kids: Ages 13+
Dogs: Not without more training
Cats: No thanks!

MAY

If I were a human, I would be a character out of Clueless — pretty, smart, fun, and always ready to be the center of attention! I came to the shelter as a stray after being found running in the forest preserve. I’m ready to master my basic commands and be a part of a loving family. Could it be yours?

Size: 35 lb.
Energy level: Medium to high
Kids: Yes
Dogs: With some training
Cats: Not yet tested

KING

At just 8 or 9 months old, I’m a young dude who’s always ready for a good time! I haven’t had much training, but I’m really eager to learn — my worst habit is that I like to jump up to kiss you. I’ve played with a couple dogs here, and boy is that fun! If you are looking for loyal companion and want to get 100 compliments about how handsome I am every time we’re out for walks, come check me out!

Size: 70 lb.
Energy level: High
Kids: Yes, but I might accidentally knock over very little kids!
Dogs: Yes, please!
Cats: Possibly (not yet tested)

SONNY

The volunteers quickly fell in love with my big cute face and slobbery kisses that you’ll be showered with upon meeting me. I’m easygoing with people but my kennel has me super stressed out, so playing with dogs has been very difficult. I’m looking for a home with people who will like to go for walks but don’t mind occasionally being couch potatoes and watching Netflix with some popcorn and ice cream. You won’t be able to resist my beautiful eyes — come see for yourself!

Size: 65 lb.
Energy level: Medium
Kids: Yes
Dogs: Not right now
Cats: Not yet tested

JACKSON

Hi! My name is Jackson. I am a nervous guy so I need to find a human family with no children who will take time to earn my trust. Once I trust you, I will be the most loyal companion you have ever had. I might be able to live with another calm dog but I’d prefer to be your one and only. Oh — did I mention you have to have a yard? I am the best leash walker ever and I walk by your side with no pulling, but I have never learned to take care of my business while on leash — I only do that when I am able to roam in the yard.

Size: 75 lb.
Energy level: Low
Kids: No!
Dogs: Probably not
Cats: Not tested

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.

Size: 45 pounds
Energy level: High
Kids: Older
Dogs: With the right fit
Cats: No thanks

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 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! Please email EASadoptions@gmail.com to meet me!

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

COLIN

in foster

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 lb.
Energy level: High
Kids: Older
Dogs: Not yet tested
Cats: Not yet tested
