Shadow W is a 2 year old, black and red, GSD. He is an active, affectionate, confident, easy-going, friendly, happy, intelligent, loving, playful and sociable dog. Shadow’s ideal home will have several dog friendly dogs.

Chica is a 3 year old female that was found in an alley in Chicago. She was brought into the shelter but her owners never reclaimed her. She is a very sweet, friendly girl. Chica is not used to other dogs and would do best as an only pet. Chica knows the basics and would benefit from continued training. She is not used to crate but is learning it's a good thing! Chica doesn't like to be left alone for long hours, so her ideal home is one with owners that are home often.

22 month old Reggae was surrendered to the shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. Reggae did not live with other animals or children in his previous home. He seems to do well so far with other dogs. Reggae is a big, strong boy that will require an experienced adoptive home. Reggae is being fostered by two dog trainers so he can learn how to be a well mannered boy! He is very sweet and playful. His favorite game is tug of war. Reggae is not used to a crate but is housebroken. He is very intelligent and has a ton of potential.

Midnight was found tied to a tree in Chicago. A caring police officer took him to the shelter, but his owners never came for him. Midnight is a very friendly, happy boy. We estimate him to be around 2-3 years old. Midnight seems to do ok with other dogs but we don't know about cats.

Buddee is a 6 year old male who's owner passed away. He is a very friendly boy who loves spending time with his people. He appears to be okay with medium and large sized dogs. No small dogs or cats as Buddee has a very strong prey drive. We will update Buddee's profile as we get to know him better.

Bear 17 was surrendered to Chicago Animal Control by his owner due to issues with their landlord. Bear is 6 years old and his owners had him since he was a puppy. He knows basic obedience commands and is crate trained. Bear lived with 2 small dogs in his precious home. He also lived with children. Bear is a so far a mellow, easy going dog. His previous owner said he is a lower energy boy.

Patsy was surrendered to Vermillion County Animal Control because her owner could no longer care for her. She is a very sweet, affectionate girl! Patsy is estimated to be between 3 and 4 years old. She gets along great with other dogs and is fine with cats! We think Patsy would do great with children. She takes treats very gently and easy to walk on leash. Patsy has an overall wonderful temperament and would make a great addition to any family.


Ari is a 2 year old male who's owner had to move and could not take him with. He does well with people. He does well with other dogs as long as he is properly introduced. We do not know how he is with small children or cats. He loves to run and play and would do great with a large fenced yard. He is a very loving and affectionate boy and will make a great addition to the right family.

Avery is a 6 to 7 month old puppy found as a stray in Chicago. She is a very sweet and social girl! Avery is not yet housebroken but she is crate trained. She will need a home with a fenced in yard and a family willing to take her to positive training classes. Avery gets along great with other dogs but has not been around cats. Avery's ideal home will have previous German Shepherd experience.
