Say hello to Brown Sugar!! Brown Sugar is wonderful dog who loves attention. She is happiest snuggled up with you getting back scratches and belly rubs. She is potty trained and is working on her crate training. She enjoys going on walks which is good because she has some energy to burn off. She also is good with other dogs...she loves playing with her two foster brothers. She also snores while she sleeps...its adorable!

She has been known to jump 4ft fences in the past. There have not been any issues with our 6ft fence. So please keep this in mind that she could use a lead, taller fence, or some training to be ok in your back yard.

From My Foster Mom....

Brown Sugar. My foster parents just call me Sugar for short

How old are you?
I am around 2-3 years old. I have been with my foster family since February 3rd 2015.

What do you look like?
I have some pittie mix in me. Sadly someone chopped my ears very badly. So now I look a bit like mini mouse

What do you like to eat?
Everything! I am currently on Purina adult dog food. I like it a lot. I can be a bit protective of my food and bones so my foster parents feed me separately from my foster brothers.

What kind of personality do you have?
Depends on the time of day. During the day I can be energetic and playful. In the evening I get tired and I get super lovey dovey and all I want to do is lay on your lap or snuggle in bed.

What is your favorite toy?
I love all toys! Squeaky ones especially. I also love playing Frisbee. Sometimes I don't want to give it back. I do have a hard time sharing some of my toys with my foster brothers and can get grumpy.

Do you know any tricks?
I can sit, lay down, roll over. We are working on my stay. I can do it for short periods. I am also working on my "come" command.

What scares you?
Vacuum cleaners. But I just run into the other room.

Do you like cats?

Do you have any doggie best friends?
I have two foster brothers that are my buddies.

How is your health?
I am in tip top shape. I am spayed and up to date on all my shots

Where do you hang out when you are home alone?
I stay in my crate when my foster parents are at work for the day

Where do you sleep?
I sleep in my crate most nights. Sometimes my foster parents will let me snuggle up in the bed with them and my foster brothers. It gets pretty crowded.

What do I have issues with?
Well I can jump pretty high and sometimes go after squirrels. So I will need a home with a 6ft fence because I can jump shorter ones.

I don't always get along with other dogs. My foster parents are always careful with me going out. If I do meet a new dog I need a proper introduction and to take things slow. My foster parents always warn other parents that I might not like their dog and to be careful around me.

About Pound Pets, Inc - Jerseyville Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

In 2014 we received our Rescue License from the state of IL. We did this mainly to help the animals in the facility that do not get reclaimed, adopted or tagged by other rescues. We also take back the animals that were adopted from animal control that are being returned because it doesn't work out. We do not want these animals going back to animal control so they come into our rescue.

With all the animals that come through animal control it is impossible for one rescue to take them all. So, we will be stepping up our efforts to bring more rescues aboard to help us with the animals that come through the facility.

We also have a Community Outreach program in our community. People can contact the volunteers for the best time to come to the animal control to pick up the food donations. This program was started to help those struggling to feed their animals. We understand that things happen and finances get tight. Often the first thing some do it cut the costs of feeding their pets by rehoming or taking them to animal control. Our goal is to keep these pets in their homes by providing food, at no cost.
