This feisty little girl came to us so FAT! No way to smooth that over.Somebody just loved her so much and showed it by feeding her.My Grandma's dogs were always obese,by her side while making all those cookies,waiting for a bit of the goodies.Fancy weighed 21 lbs when she came to us.She has already lost 8lbs.,doesn't sound like much,but that's 1/3 of her body weight! She still needs to lose another 7 or so and will need to be exercised and kept on a restricted diet (she loves to eat) Fancy Pants takes awhile to get to know,but so worth it! She loves her lap time .She has this adorable thing of when you're petting her and stop,she takes her tiny paw and pulls your hand back over to her(one of those things you have to see firsthand).Fancy is housebroken,5 yrs old,sweet,quiet,loves to snuggle under the blankets,gets along with other dogs,walks great on a leash, and just so much fun to have around and always good for a laugh. Somebody will be so lucky to take this girl in to make their house a home. If you would like to meet Fancy Pants,please email Karen at or call 630 851-9354.Her adoption fee is 175.

About Eye on the Sparrow

About Our Rescue Group...

All of our pets are in foster homes, from Sheridan to North Aurora, IL. We take in many special needs dogs,some physically, mentally or behaviorally challenged. Some of them have been abused or neglected, many are seniors, most just need some understanding and patience. A lot of them have never heard a vacuum before or even felt a kind pat on their heads. Fostering them prepares them for the life they so richly deserve when a kind person adopts from us. When you adopt a shelter dog, you are making a giant step in reducing euthanasia for all these great dogs looking for a home. It is not their fault, it is the fault of the human that previously was involved in their life. Thanks for checking out our website, maybe you will find the pal of your dreams.

Our Adoption Process...

We have an online application on our website, Requirements vary as per the individual dog's needs as far as time alone, children, other pets, fenced yard vs. leash walking and such. Our adoption donations can range from $99 for less adoptable/older dogs, and higher for puppies and other highly sought after dogs(which helps us take in needy often medically challenged dogs and cats.)
Our contract states we have the right to visit the dog, check up periodically as well as take the dog back if necessary. We get first right to the dog if adopter chooses not to keep him. We want all adopters to realize this is a serious commitment and want our dogs to go to safe, loving homes.
