Adoptable Dogs!

 

Updated on 7/26/2015

 

Buddy (D15081)

New Arrival!!

Calling large dog-lovers! Meet our handsome hunk, Buddy!  Buddy is around 6 years old and appears to be a shepherd mix.  He came to animal control with a collar embedded in his neck requiring surgical removal. He's healing up nicely and he's a really good boy who loves being around people. He gets along well with the resident dog in his foster home and we've seen him playing wonderfully with a 3 month old puppy much smaller than he.  Buddy is also fine with kids (a few kids have gone in for the hug and Buddy loved it!).  While he has plenty of energy to keep his owner active, he sleeps quietly in his crate at night, chills nicely and is a pleasure to be with.  Buddy is potty-trained, but it appears that nobody taught him how to walk on leash or any basic commands - these basics are now being addressed in his foster home.  Anyone adopting Buddy should not only want a snuggle buddy, 'cause he's one of those dogs that loves physical contact (he'll lay across your lap if you let him), but should also be committed to his continued training so you can enjoy the unfolding of a beautiful dog both inside and out. Buddy tends to get excited on walks when he sees other dogs, but is learning that "Calm" is what is going to win hearts and influence people. You can see how well Buddy is doing in this video clip here and another here during a session with our behaviorist.

Buddy's adoption fee of $250 includes: vet exam, heart worm test (neg.), distemper, bordetella and rabies vaccinations, deworming, flea control, dental cleaning and neuter.

 

       

Cookie (D15090)

New Arrival!!

 

 

This sweet little Cookie has been with us for a few weeks now, growing up in one of our foster homes.  Her foster mom says Cookie is very loving and often is the first to attract peoples' attention. She is playful and curious and gentle and loves to wrestle with all of the other dogs and play tug of war with their toys. She also loves to be carried around the house or yard, happy for any attention she can get. She is the smallest of her litter, currently weighing in at 4 pounds, and follows the other pups around more than wandering off on her own.  She does not mind the kennel and will also happily take a toy with her into the opened kennel if there are other pups in there, and plays for a bit inside of it before settling down for a nap. 

Our best guess is that Cookie is a hound mix, but at this young of an age breed is hard to be certain.  So since we don't know what breed or size she will grow into, only those willing to take pot luck need apply!   Because of her young age, she will need to go to a home with a stay-at-home person who will continue with her training and socialization and keep her well exercised.  Adults and older children recommended.  Lots of activity and puppy school is a must. 

Now that Cookie is old enough, we've moved her to Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd. where you can meet her anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt her on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Cookie's date of birth is approximately 5/30/15 and her adoption fee of $350 includes vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip and spay.

    

Cupcake (D15082)

Adopted!!

Introducing the one and only Cupcake!    Affectionate and well socialized, she specializes in play, play, play!  she will fill your day with love in return for you filling her day with toys!   Chew toys, squeaky, bouncy, she loves them all.  When she's done with her activity, she likes to be hugged & snugged, but is just as happy to be on the floor.  She does well in a crate and sleeps most of the night quietly.  She loves to play with other dogs, so would make a great play companion for your dog.

 A beautiful blend of brown brindle, this little chocolate delight is about 4 months old and weighs in at just under 20 pounds.  We believe she is some type of shepherd mix.  But since we don't know what breed or size she will grow into, only those willing to take pot luck need apply!   Because of her young age, she will need to go to a home with a stay-at-home person who will continue with her training and socialization and keep her well exercised.  Lots of activity and puppy school is a must.  and, of course, lots of toys!

 You can meet Cupcake at her current foster home Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd. anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt her on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Cupcake's adoption fee of $325 includes vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip and spay.

 

      

 

Hunter (D15091)

New Arrival!!

 

Hunter has been with us for a few weeks now, growing up in one of our foster homes.   His foster mom says Hunter is such a sweetie. He is the largest, but the most docile of the bunch. He is playful and gentle and loves to cuddle. He loves to sleep and is the first one to tire out. He loves his kennel, and is always the first one to voluntarily walk in when he is done playing and ready for a nap. Often the other pups will play around him/on top of him while he happily stays asleep, but when he does wake up he has a healthy amount of energy and enjoys playing and wrestling with them. He's already learning about potty training and whines at the door when he needs to go out! 

Our best guess is that Hunter is a hound mix, but at this young of an age breed is hard to be certain.  He's the largest of his litter, currently weighing a whopping 9 pounds.  Since we don't know what breed or size he will grow into, only those willing to take pot luck need apply!   Because of his young age, he will need to go to a home with a stay-at-home person who will continue with his training and socialization and keep him well exercised.  Lots of activity and puppy school is a must. 

 Now that Hunter is old enough, we've moved him to Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd. where you can meet him anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt him on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Hunter's date of birth is approximately 5/30/15 and his adoption fee of $350 includes vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

           

  

Lidia D15088

New Arrival!!

Meet our lovely Lidia. She's 8 months old - give or take a month, around 37 pounds, and appears to be a terrier mix who is full of affection and playful energy.  Lidia loves running around in the backyard chasing toys or taking turns chasing and being chased by other dogs. She's just an adolescent puppy, so along with training and socializing, exercise should be on the menu daily. 

When playtime is over she is very well behaved.  She has a very calm temperament when in the house and loves to be petted.  Lidia isn’t much of a jumper and is friendly to everyone that comes to the house including little kids.  Nobody is a stranger to her and she wags her tail for everyone she meets.  Lidia is currently fostered with two small dogs and gets along well with them.  Her play buddy is a tiny Pomeranian and she seems to know how to restrain herself when playing so she doesn’t hurt him. 

She has learned to go potty outside in the short time she's been in her foster home. They've taught her the "sit" command and she's also improving on leash.  Lidia is treat-driven which makes training her pretty easy. In the evening she is very content laying by herself around the house or on the couch with you if you let her.  She sleeps through the night and is content to go in her crate.  Her foster family usually has to wake her up in the morning.  Lidia is a wonderful, smart dog who will make some lucky family a super canine companion.

Lidia's adoption fee of $300 includes:  vet exam, heart worm test (neg)., distemper combo vaccination, bordetella and rabies vaccinations, routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.

  

Lillian D15034

Lillian is a 9 month old mixed breed, and though we were told her parents were terrier and miniature pinscher mixes, with her short legs and long body it looks like one of her parents was also part Dachshund! She's pint sized at about about 13 pounds. She came from a home that had too many dogs, and the owner asked a rescue person to take Lillian and her sister Jillian and find them good homes.

Lillian is now doing nicely in her new foster home.  She walks well on a leash, is good in the car and good in her crate.  Lillian has an exuberant personality and makes friends with everyone she meets, and conversely, everyone she meets loves her in return.  In her foster home she plays very well with visiting children.  She even doesn't mind the vet and the groomer!  She's good with other dogs, albeit a little "chatty" with excitement at first.  We recently had her with us at a street festival, and she did great with all the people wanting to pet her.

Lilly has so many good qualities, sometimes it's easy to forget - she's still a puppy!  A puppy who, because of where she came from, missed out on some basic training in her babyhood. A puppy that still needs 'adult supervision' and guidance and appropriate chew toys.  Luckily for whoever adopts her, Lillian's foster dad is one of our most experienced!  Lillian is now mostly housebroken and has learned to lie down and wait before going outside. Her foster dad says she is one of the most responsive dogs he's ever had; she is so very eager to please and so very smart.  So her adopter will need to continue with her training, provide lots of mental stimulation and a regular exercise regimen as she grows into adulthood so as not to become bored. 

 Lillian is a lap dog, and being a great snuggler, hopes you'll let her share your bed -- but only if you want her to.  Overall, she's a very friendly, sweet little dog who is fairly non-demanding.  All she needs is clear leadership, clear rules, clear boundaries, love and affection, which she will return tenfold!  If you are looking for a smaller, intelligent, outgoing older puppy, come meet Lillian!

 Lillian's adoption fee of $300 includes initial vet exam, heartworm test, distemper vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, flea/tick preventative, deworming, heartworm preventative, microchip, and spay.

    

Marnie (D15094)

New Arrival!!

Marnie is a very sweet little terrier mix, pint sized at only 13 pounds.   We estimate her age to be about 1 1/2 yrs. old.  She's generally a quiet girl, happy to just go along with the flow.  She travels well in the car and gets along well with other dogs.  She likes playing with the ball, but hasn't quite gotten the 'fetch' part of it yet!   She might be house broken, when out for a day visit in a volunteer's home, she seemed to know what pee pads were for.   She would fit in well with almost any type of family.

 Marnie is currently being fostered at at Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd. where you can meet her anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt her on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

 Marnie's adoption fee of $300 includes vet exam, heartworm test (neg.), distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip and spay.

 

           

 

 

Minnie (D15085)

Adopted!!

This is Minnie, a wiry terrier mix, about 3 years old and weighing in at 20 pounds.  This little ragmop is as adorable as they come.

Friendly, mild-mannered, good company, and a bit of a couch-potato, but that means you always know where she is and you always have someone to sit with, listen to music with or watch TV with. She likes to be with her foster mom and will follow her around the house, the yard - then, it’s back to the couch or chair. She’s always ready for a back-scratch, head-scratch (loves them)… and just likes to be NEAR her human. A perfect little constant companion, she would do best with someone who is home a lot.

Though she's new to her foster home, she appears housetrained as long as she's kept on a regular schedule.  No problem in her crate, she goes in easily - and happy to come out!   She's easy on the leash - loves to go for walks - pulls a bit, but not too hard. 

Minnie seems to prefer the quiet life.  Puppies and other active dogs are 'overwhelming' for Minnie.   She's adjusted to her older foster brother, tolerates him and they sleep on the couch together, but not much interaction.  So she probably won't be much of a play companion for another dog, but would make a nice house companion for an older/quieter dog.  Cats seem to be no problem.  She ignores them . . . as long as they ignore her.  She shares "their couch" without a problem.

Overall, she's a quiet, peaceful little girl.   Not a big 'toy-playing dog', at least right now.   As she becomes adjusted, that could change.  We have not had her around children yet, but  don't think she would be a good match for younger children.  Older children who are not looking for a play-companion and are mature enough to respect Minnie's space would be fine.

 Minnie's adoption fee of $300 includes vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, heartworm test, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, routine deworming, microchip and spay.

Mittens (D15077)

New Arrival!!

If you are looking for a sweet, loyal, mature dog, look no further! Mittens will be your best friend and will follow you around the house looking for a belly rub, a neck scratch, or a head message in no time flat!  She will also give you some space by curling up on the couch and taking a nice long nap. She loves to go out for walks and often goes back to the door hoping for another walk right after you've returned to your home! 

She is 100% house trained and has learned the commands "sit" and "down" in just a few weeks. Mittens does well in her crate and is great with other dogs, cats, and kids.  She is learning to walk nicely on a leash, though sometimes tends to pull on the leash (especially when she sees another dog or a bunny!), so she'll need an owner who will continue her leash training.  Luckily, she's a nice manageable size at just a bit over 20 pounds.

Mittens recently lost her home when her owner, a U.S. Navy veteran, had to give up his dogs after a debilitating stroke left him unable to care for them. This is your chance to honor a man who served our country and would want only the best for the dogs he sadly had to give up. Mittens came with complete vet records (pardon the pun) so we know she was well-cared for her entire life. Her breed is noted as Brittany Spaniel mix; however, she looks more like a Beagle or hound mix to us.  Whatever she is, she’s adorable!

Mittens’ foster mom describes her as "A really lovely girl. Sweet, likes to be petted and have attention – but not overly so.  The perfect balance.  Good company. Did not even acknowledge the cat!"

Mittens is about 7 years old, the perfect age for someone looking for a ready-made, well-socialized pet that is past the crazy hyper stage but still has that spark in her eye and spring in her step.  She’ll be just as content to spend time with you on the couch as she will taking you for a walk!  In fact, if bored, she might even try to take HERSELF for a walk!  She's a smart, athletic girl that just might decide to climb your chain-link fence to explore the other side, if left alone in your yard.  So due to her inquisitive nature, yard time for Mittens should be a family activity. 

This beautiful girl is people friendly, dog friendly, cat friendly, house trained, crate trained, leash trained, well mannered, and good looking to boot!  She is looking for that special someone out there who has room in their heart and in their home for a sweet, intelligent dog as a way of thanking and honoring her former owner.  Now, THAT would be a perfect fit!   If you are looking for a mature, sociable, easy-going dog to take on walks and keep you company, come meet Mittens!

Mittens’ adoption fee of $225 includes initial vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, flea/tick preventative, deworming, heartworm test, heartworm preventative, dental cleaning and extractions, microchip, and spay. 

Veterans or currently enlisted – show us your ID and as our way of thanking and honoring YOU, we’ll cut her adoption fee in half.

 

   

         

Mr. Right (D15098)

New Arrival!!

 

 

 

Looking for Mr. Right?   Well, look no further!   We found him right under our nose, and what a little sweetie this guy is.  This miniature terrier mix got delivered to Adopt-A-Pet by mistake.  He came to us from a high kill pound in Kentucky.  We were supposed to have gotten a different dog, but a mix-up happened on the transport, and 'our' dog got delivered to another shelter, and this little guy was handed over to us instead.  We told our vet to hold off on vetting him because we were going to be swapping dogs with the other shelter, and as a result, he never got a name or ID number, so to identify him they just started calling him "Mr. Wrong".  What a sad little name.  Well, fast forward a couple days, and we were having trouble coordinating with the other shelter to do the swap, and the more we got to know "Mr. Wrong" - we realized he was anything BUT "Mr. Wrong" and he must have been meant to be with us since everyone at the vet clinic loved him so much. So, swap cancelled, he wasn't going anywhere!  And now this fellow has been officially dubbed "Mr. Right".  He's now all vetted and ready to find his forever home.

We estimate Mr. Right to be about 3 years old and some kind of terrier mix.  He's smaller than he looks in his photos, only 18 pounds.  He's a total love with everyone, gets along with other dogs, ignored the clinic cats, and is just a happy little boy with his short tail always wagging.  He's just settling in at his new foster home, but so far it's been an easy transition.  He appears to be housetrained.  He still needs a little coaching in the leash training and basic obedience department, he doesn't seem to know much, but he's attentive and wants to please.  Stay tuned for updates as we get to know him better.

Mr. Right's adoption fee of $295 includes:   vet exam, heartworm test (neg.), distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, routine deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip - and he is neutered.

 

          

Ody (D15099)

New Arrival!!

Hi, my name is Ody and I know it - Just call me, and I'll come running. I also know Sit and Lie Down and I even understand if I'm told to leave a room.   I have a few years under my belt but it has all led to maturity. I am housebroken, I don’t chew things and I’m good with other dogs. (Cats, not so much!  I don't think I'd ever hurt one, but it sure is fun chasing them!)  Overall, though, I'm a pretty relaxed and well-adjusted guy.  I'm probably some kind of hound-terrier mix, long and low like a bassett, with the face of a terrier.  I’m not tall but I’m BIG on personality.  I love snuggling and giving kisses. I always have a smile on my face and I like following my foster dad like a shadow.  I recently overheard him saying that I'm the best foster dog he's ever had!  And my foster mom calls me a "love bug". 

My foster family taught me the first day that I'm not allowed on the couch (much to my chagrin, but, you know, their house, their rules :)   However, even with my stubby little legs, I managed to get up on their (QUITE high) bed though and slept right in between them all night! So as you can see, I acclimate easily.  Within a few hours, it will be liked I've lived with you forever.  Can you say EASY!

I’m living with a foster sister dog who is a good bit bigger than me (I'm only 34 pounds), but we play, wrestle and just hang out great. I lived with my previous owners until they could not care for me anymore but I know how to live in a home.  I would be a perfect turn-key dog for the right home. I would love a family with an existing dog (I'm very good about sharing my food and toys!) - but I would do fine if I’m the only dog as long as I'm not left alone TOO long.  I'm a very sociable guy, so don't want to be lonely.  If you want a pal that will snuggle as much as you want and always has a smile, I am the dog for you. 

Ody is estimated to be 6-7 years old  His adoption fee of $235 includes:  vet exam, heartworm test (neg.), distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, routine deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip, dental cleaning and neuter.

 

Patch (D15089)

New Arrival!!

Patch has been with us for a few weeks now, growing up in one of our foster homes.  He currently weighs 5 pounds.  His foster mom says Patch very sweet. He is also very calm. He is active and playful and loves to cuddle. He is adventurous but more of a follower than a leader, and turns back if he feels he is wandering out too far in the yard, unless he is with people. Our little girl carries him around the yard and he is quite happy to let her.  She has even taken him down the slide with her a few times, and he wags his tail each time and sits next to her, waiting for her to position herself for their next ride. He follows her around the most, and is the first one to run to her when she enters the room.  For nap time, he has no trouble in his kennel and frequently will join one of his siblings for a nap in the opened kennel, without prompting, when he is finished playing. 

Our best guess is that Patch is a hound mix, but at this young of an age breed is hard to be certain.  So since we don't know what breed or size he will grow into, only those willing to take pot luck need apply!   Because of his young age, he will need to go to a home with a stay-at-home person who will continue with his training and socialization and keep him well exercised.  Lots of activity and puppy school is a must.  And, of course, lots of toys!  A home with a child -- and a slide -- is a bonus!

Now that Patch is old enough, we've moved him to Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd. where you can meet him anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt him on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Patch's date of birth is approximately 5/30/15 and his adoption fee of $350 includes vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

 

     

Pepe (JW-D-4619)

 

 

 

 

Hola!  I'm Pepe, a 2 year old chihuahua/terrier mix, weighing in at a svelte 10 pounds. Affectionately known by my foster parents as Chooch, or Choo, or Choo Choo. Doesn't matter, I answer to all!  While at first I was a little leery of big guys, I now understand that humans, whatever size, shape or gender, are vehicles of affection. If I sound quite the scholar, that is because I have learned so much in my foster home that I now consider myself an astute, bright, brainy and brilliant example of my heritage! I have developed an array of clever ways to attract your attention, showing off my extreme cuteness. You will not be able to resist my adorable and charming personality, and in turn I get to sit on your lap or your arm. Sometimes you rub my belly, which is one of my favorite pastimes!

 I love to play with a ball, a squeak toy, rope or whatever else you have for me. I like playing with my own species as well. Big or small, I can handle any size friend I meet. I am a very brave and confident fellow.  I have the ability to learn so much more, in case you have anything in mind you'd like to teach me! I'm willing and able.    Click here to see him at play!

 My foster mom says this about me: Chooch is quite the agility athlete, In fact, he'd be a riot to teach all kinds of tricks. I bet he'd be able to walk on a ball if you taught him. He is crate trained, but it's not his favorite place. He'll go in no problem either for a meal or a treat, but likes to come out when done. May whine a little, but settles down if you leave. I have left him loose in the "dog room" without incident. That said, I'd say he's housetrained, but would need time for adjustment in a new home. He's great with other dogs, and mostly ignores my cat once he was used to her. He's fine with both men, women and older children (I don't have any small ones). This guy has developed such a personality, all of us are getting quite attached to him and amused daily at his silly antics. What a great little dog!

 Pepe's adoption fee of $300 includes: initial vet exam, heartworm test (neg) and heart worm preventative, distemper combination vaccination, bordetella and rabies vaccinations, routine deworming, flea control, neuter and microchip.

        

Pierre (D15087)

New Arrival!!

 

This little munchkin is as cute as they come.  We believe Pierre is a Chihuahua mix, possibly with Papillon or Pomeranian.  He's about 4 yrs. old and tiny at only 5 1/2 pounds.  He looks a little bigger, but it's really just a lot of fluff.  Pierre has the most adorable personality.  He's extremely social,  loves everyone he meets, and just wants to be pampered and the center of attention.  He's friendly with other dogs - although he may bark at another dog on the street, it's just because he wants you to bring you over to meet him.   Still needs work on general obedience and housebreaking, he's small enough to be pee-pad trained.

 Pierre is currently being fostered at at Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd. where you can meet him anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt him on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

 Pierre's adoption fee of $300 includes vet exam, heartworm test (neg.), distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

             

Scamper (D15096)

New Arrival!!

Meet Scamper, a terrier mix estimated to be about 3 yrs.old, and tiny at just 8 pounds.  Though he was a tad shy when he first arrived, he's acclimated well and is now more outgoing and social.  He's very sweet once he gets to know you.  He appears to be housebroken - in his new foster home he has only pottied outside.  He adjusted well right away, made himself at home and crawled in a doggy bed and went to sleep. He got along very well with the resident dog right away and likes to play. He's just a sweet little dog that will make a nice companion for anybody.

Scamper's adoption fee of $300 includes vet exam, heartworm test (neg.), distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

    

  

Scout (D15092)

New Arrival!!

Scout has been with us for a few weeks now, growing up in one of our foster homes.  She currently weighs 5 pounds.  Her foster mom says Scout is the most adventurous of the bunch. She is very curious and very playful. She is fearless! She is the first one to explore something new, chases our dog the most often and whines the most when she is not with people. Though the children handle her along with all the others, Scout has shown the least patience with their attention.  With her siblings, she is bold and bossy, definitely the leader of the troop.  A very confident little girl!  She handles being in the kennel for the night well, once she realizes her whining will not get her out….only about 5 minutes, usually less.

Our best guess is that Scout is a hound mix, but at this young of an age breed is hard to be certain.  So since we don't know what breed or size she will grow into, only those willing to take pot luck need apply!   Because of her young age, she will need to go to a home with a stay-at-home person who will continue with her training and socialization and keep her well exercised.  Adults and older children recommended.  Lots of activity and puppy school is a must. 

 Now that Scout is old enough, we've moved her to Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd. where you can meet her anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt her on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Scout's date of birth is approximately 5/30/15 and her adoption fee of $350 includes vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip and spay.

 

     

 

Suzie Q (D15084)

Adopted!

This is little Suzie Q!    A bundle of affection, she loves hugs, and has lots of kisses to give in return.  Active and playful, she's just as happy playing with her toys as she is with other dogs.  She does well in a crate and sleeps most of the night quietly.  She loves to play with other dogs, so would make a great play companion for your dog.

Suzie is about 4 months old and the largest of her litter, currently at about 22 pounds.  We believe she is some type of shepherd mix.  But since we don't know what breed or size she will grow into, only those willing to take pot luck need apply!   Because of her young age, she will need to go to a home with a stay-at-home person who will continue with her training and socialization and keep her well exercised.  Lots of activity and puppy school is a must.  and, of course, lots of toys!

You can meet Suzie at her current foster home Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd. anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt her on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

 Suzie's adoption fee of $325 includes vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip and spay.

  

         

Twinkie (D15083)

Adopted!!

Meet Twinkie, an adorable yellow shepherd mix filled with nothing but sweetness.  Though a bit of a timid nature, she is super affectionate and gentle.  She will follow you everywhere.   Allow her up on the bed, and she'll sleep next to you all night.  Give her a toy, and she'll play with it until she's tuckered out. Then she'll go into her crate to relax without even any coaxing.  She's good with other dogs.   And she tries to play with the cats in her foster home - although that's not going over too well with the cats :)   She's still a bit afraid of the big outdoors with all its cars and noises, but her foster mom is helping her get more acclimated to leash walking. 

Twinkie is about 4 months old and weighs in at 18 pounds.   Since we don't know what breed or size she will grow into, only those willing to take pot luck need apply!   Because of her young age, she will need to go to a home with a stay-at-home person who will continue with her training and socialization and keep her well exercised.  Lots of activity and puppy school is a must.

Twinkie's adoption fee of $325 includes vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip and spay.
