    Meet Darling! Young Female Darling was abandoned at a high kill shelter in Alabama that we work closely with. We were able to get her out of the shelter and into an amazing foster home in Alabama where she is waiting for her trip to Illinois and learning about love. Her foster tells us that she is very sweet with humans... she will lick you to death. She is learning to sit. She is learning to share her people... It's like she is starving for attention and afraid to be abandoned again. She is housebroken and loves everyone...adults and children. Fostering is the most life giving thing you can do for a dog or puppy! It is a very ... (Read More)rewarding experience that will make a huge impact on their life. By becoming a foster you are saving 2 lives - the animal you bring into your home while he or she waits to be adopted, and the animal who gets to take your foster's place in the shelter.

Animal ID: 2875Katie (female)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Katie is a sweet girl, with lots of Aussie energy and curiosity! She is 35#'s at 6 mos. of age, and her DOB is 8-31-14. Katie would be an awesome dog for an active family that knows the Aussie breed energy and the need to be occupied. Children over 8 years that can handle an active dog would be great. Katie is housetrained, and listens well. Someone home most the day is best, not gone regulary more than 4 to 5 hours per day. She will be a great girl in an obedience class, and agility would be so much fun for her! She is alert and wants to learn. Having a fenced yard to run and play in is perfect so she can run and check things out, and chase ... (Read More)a ball or frisbee. Katie will settle down and be a snuggler too. Katie loves her brushing and is so happy when being petted! Another active dog who likes to run and play would be great! She is good with the other dogs and cats at her foster home, and sleeps all night in her foster Mom's room. Katie is not a big barker, and does well in her kennel. She is waiting for a family or individual to show her the world, one that will love her 4-ever! (Less)

Animal ID: 2879Ben (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ben is a sweet and friendly boy with medium energy. He is 4 1/2 mos. born 10-20-14, now weighing 32#'s. As an adult he may weigh between 55#'s to 60#'s. Ben plays very well with the other dogs at his foster home and is good with the cats too. Children would be good if 5yrs. and over so he doesn't knock them down by accident. He is gentle mouthed, but still a teething puppy. Rough and tumble at the right times like Ben Smith of the Chicago Blackhawks as he is named after, then gentle and a cuddler for some good snuggle time. A fenced yard to run and play in, or leash walks and regular dog park visits is good. Someone home most the time is ... (Read More)needed due to his young age. Ben is potty trained well for his age, as long as you let him out as needed. He is not a big barker, and is kennel trained. Ben sleeps through the night in his foster Mom's room, and wants to be with his humans. Squeaky toys are his second best! You could be his first! (Less)
