|Rescue Me ID: 14-07-21-00600Star (female)|
Star is 7-10 years old, in good health and extremely loving. She weighs about 70 lbs and sometimes thinks she's a lap dog. She is house trained, loves sleeping on a garden table on our shaded patio and swimming in our ponds. On the negative side, she is dominate over others dogs, jumps on people when excited/attention starved, and freighted of loud noises such as thunder, fireworks and gunshots. We adopted her five years ago and believe she may have abused at some point in her life because she cowers when afraid or being spoken to harshly. We hate to see Star go, but she needs space to run and we're moving due to a change in jobs and do not believe she would fair well in a town house in a big city. Would prefer Star going to a farm or home with lots of space, but a nice fenced yard with a loving family would be good too. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-07-07-00197Jack (male)|
Jack is a 2 year old standard Australian Shepherd weighing about 40 lbs who came into ASRM as an owner surrender. He's very energetic and loving. He wants nothing more than to have his persons's love and attention. He is young, but he does very well with house rules when they are clear and enforced from the beginning. His attention span is improving all the time, and once he has his permanent home he will settle down even more into the house routine.Jack has learned good leash manners with his foster mom. He gets excited to see other dogs, but has learned not to bark his opinion. He was not socialized with dogs before being fostered, so his interactions with a new dog should be slow and monitored for the first couple hours helps to make sure that no one gets offended at their personal space being invaded by this big goofball. Once acquainted, he is very friendly with dogs. He would be fine in a house with a cat that is not skittish. Since Jack is energetic at this age, he would be best suited to a home without toddlers, with children that are old enough that they can't be knocked over by a silly 40 lb Aussie. Jack is also crate trained, and has never had an accident in the house.He loves to play fetch, and is quite good at catching balls and Frisbees out of the air. He knows the basics of obedience such as sit, down, wait, stay, leave it. 'Leave it' is his newest trick, because Jack has a very strong chase instinct. He loves to watch cats inside, squirrels, rabbits, birds, and even bugs in the yard, but has learned to make eye contact with foster mom to ask permission before chasing. Due to his high prey drive he will need to always be on leashed or in a fenced yard when he goes out.Jack loves people and is always excited to see them. He catches on to new tasks or commands very quickly, and at the same time is a hilarious klutz. He loves belly rubs and has recently discovered the joy of chewing on bones. As long as he has a day filled with a combination of mental and physical exercise, belly rubs he is a happy boy who loves to shadow his foster mom from room to room. He has improved by leaps and bounds just in the couple months since he was taken into ASRM, and he can't wait to find his forever family so they can share his continued progress with him.Jack is neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped. He is currently on heartworm preventative and frontline for flea and tick prevention. Jack is being fostered in Central IL. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-07-01-00540Licorice (female)|
Licorice is a 13 week old lab mix. She is a sweetheart and loves to cuddle. She has been great with kids and adults and enjoys playing with other dogs too. She also lives with two cats in her current foster home and is very curious about them. Licorice is not aggressive towards the felines but she still needs to learn that cats don't want to play with her like other dogs do! Since she is just a puppy, she has a lot of playful energy and will require a time commitment for consistent exercise, basic obedience training, and house breaking. She is down to one potty accident in the house a day so she's almost there! She loves to run and would make an excellent jogging partner with a little leash training. She sleeps quietly all night in her crate and doesn't complain much about being crated during the day when necessary. Licorice is not much of a barker so you should expect a pretty quiet dog. She enjoys chewing on ropes and is beginning to grasp the concept of fetching a tennis ball. Her perfect forever home will include a motivated and experienced family who can provide at least an hour of exercise per day with strong leadership and consistent training. With the right guidance, she will make a great dog!! Her adoption fee is $295 and includes spay when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email Kathy for an application at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help.

|Rescue Me ID: 14-06-15-00020Norman (male)|
This is Norman and he's a golden retriever/australian shepherd mix he'll be a year old June 27th. He is not neutered nor is he potty trained; my boyfriend and I saved him from being neglected, his old owners before us never bothered to take care of him, didn't train him, barely fed him, barely gave him water, he weighs about 25 pounds when he should weigh at least 40; he's amazing with other dogs, very playful, great with kids from what we know so far, he loves to give kisses, he does bark a lot if he's left alone outside. He has his rabie shots. We would love to keep him but one of our other dogs does not get along with him. He needs a home where someone will take the time and have patience with him enough to potty train him. Neuturing is completely up to whomever adopts him. He will come with a collar and leash, a bag of treats and any food that is left over for him. I'm asking 250 because that's what we paid and we want him going to a home that will give him the love and attention he deserves. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-06-11-00393Mya Mia (female)|
Mya is an Australian Shepherd/Pit Bull mix. She's only 1.5 and seems to have already had a litter of puppies. Her weight seems low so I feed her Nutro Ultra and she's free to eat as much as she wants/needs throughout the day. I am only finding her a new home because I will be moving and am only allowed one dog. She's current on all her shots, heartworm negative, spayed and just a great dog. I would want her to go straight from my home to her new home, I don't want her to experience a shelter again. She is loved very much I am just trying to do right by her.
