One of Gladys’ favorite activities is going for walks. The only command she knows is “no;” if you’re going to know one command that is a good one to know! She’s very active and excited when you come home, and when you go on walks. But after she goes for a walk and eats she’s pretty much a chihuahua pillow. She also loves going for rides, and often wants to “help” the driver. Her foster mom said “eating” is another one of her favorite hobbies.

Gladys has met children and is fine with them, but they do need to be taught to respect her space when she is eating or playing with toys. She probably would not appreciate active or unpredictable children and would really do best in a situation where children are visitors and not roommates. Gladys lived with another dog in her foster home until her recent passing. They got along well, but both kept to themselves. Recently Gladys’ foster family has added another resident dog to their home and the two of them have played together a bit. Gladys is housebroken if you respond to her signals that she needs to go out. She will occasionally have accidents during the night.Gladys is not destructive. She is given a room for herself when no one is home. It has a crate in it and she loves to go in it and sleep there, but the door is never closed. Gladys likes to collect stuffed animal “babies.” She spends her time cleaning and cuddling them. Gladys can be a little vocal when she hears things she cannot see including cars, TVs in other rooms, people outside etc. She might do best in a town home or a single family home.

We were told by her first foster home that she did not like men. Well...that’s not true. She LOVES her foster daddy. She can barely contain her excitement when she hears the garage when he comes home. She can be a little protective of the people she loves so she does best meeting new people outside. Her ideal home would be with someone who understands and loves Chihuahuas.

About Lulu's Locker Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lulu’s Locker Rescue is a nonprofit, volunteer-run companion animal rescue working to bring to light the plight of black cats and dogs in shelters as well as the misconceptions surrounding FIV cats. We aim to lower the euthanasia rate of these animals by educating the public and providing foster care as we seek out permanent homes. We are committed to the protection of the misjudged and wrongly stereotyped through compassion and respect, which we believe both animals and human beings deserve.

We are based out of Frankfort, IL, and rescue cats and dogs in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Our Adoption Process...

We encourage potential adopters to ask friends, family, and Lulu’s Locker about companion animal experiences in their lives. We want to ensure the animal we adopt to you fits well in your home environment. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about long-term animal care prior to adopting! Please contact us via email or phone 708-325-8581.

Everything we do is for the animals in our care, and is aimed at giving them the best possible chance of finding a permanent home.

- Fill out this online Adoption Application to get the process rolling! Copy and paste this URL into your browser -->

- Once your Application is completed, you will have a phone conversation with an adoption counselor.

- Once you’ve been approved, s/he will fill you in on the personalities, history, and behavior of the animals to allow you to make the best choice possible for your living situation. You can ask your counselor any questions you have regarding health, behavior, and long-term care.

- You and all members of your household will then be invited to visit the foster home or boarding facility where the animal is currently living. If you decide adoption is right for you, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee which covers the spay/neuter, wellness exam, vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test (dogs only).

- Animals are subject to a home visit prior to completion of the adoption process.

- You will ALWAYS have continued support from Lulu’s Locker after your adoption! We invite you to contact us at any time with questions or concerns!
