Savannah's Story...
Please do not click the adopt me Button. If your interested in meeting Savannah, please go to our website and complete the on-line adoption application. This is the link to our website the application can be completed.

Hello potential adopter, although we make the best guess on the breed and size of our dogs, because they come from shelters or are strays, we can never be completely certain of the genetic makeup of the dog. All we can tell you for sure is that they are 100% RESCUED! If an animal is still posted for adoption, he/she is still available. If you see this this post, she is available for adoption so there is no need to email us for availability.

Meet Savannah! We can't begin to say enough wonderful things about this girl. She is a gem, and simply the best. Savannah is a doll, super friendly and very sweet. She touches the hearts of everyone who meets her. She is housetrained and has never had an accident in her foster home. Her teeth were very white when she had her dental done so the vets feel she is about 2-3 years. She is about 30 pounds and as cute as can be. Savannah is wonderful with other dogs, and terrific with children, men, and women. She is being fostered in a home in Plainfield, IL, which is where you would go to meet her after submitting an adoption application.

Savannah was in a temp foster home, while her foster mommy as on vacation, and there were some kitties. She was trying to figure them out as we don't think she's ever seen one. She willl chase them and bark if they run, but we think it's because she wants to play. However we really are not sure how she will do with kitties as she was only in a home for a week with felines.

Savannah is super playful, and very cute in a prancing/pouncing style. There is no food, toy, or bone guarding issues, and we've never seen an ounce of aggression from this sweet girl. The foster mom has young grand children that come over and Savannah is wonderful with them.

Savannah had a tough start at life. She was found as a stray in Hazard, KY very pregnant, and in rough shape. Within days of arriving she unfortunately went into premature labor and lost all of her babies. She had what the vets thought was a skin condition and was treated with antibiotics for the infection, steroids and special shampoos. Well it worked in the short term. Then poor Savannah started chewing and scratching herself again. She was already on a no grain food so we didn't think it was food related.

Our vets put her on an allergy medicine called Apoquel, and WOW within days there was already a change in her. No more scratching, licking or biting her paws. We think the allergies might be environmental. We know she has winter allergies and will need medication daily during the winter months. We are not sure about the other seasons since we've only had her through the winter, but we will have to assume that she will likely need medication year round. Her new family will need to be willing to spend $50.00 a month for the allergy medication to keep her comfortable.

Savannah has been in our rescue for a few months recovering from everything that has happened to her and getting her healthy. She is now ready for a wonderful family to adopt her and continue to show her the love she deserves.

If you would like to meet Savannah and give her the dream home she has been wanting where some will take care of her for the rest of her life, please fill out the on-line adoption application at

Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but is required prior to making arrangements for a meet and greet as all of our animals are cared for in homes. We can't schedule meet and greets until the application is submitted and approved. We don't have a building so there are no viewing hours. All of our animals are cared for in foster homes by wonderful families who volunteer their time to save these precious souls.

The adoption fee is $200 and includes the spay which is now done, microchipped, her dental cleaning and she had a couple teeth removed we think from all of the chewing she was doing from the allergies, x-rays from after her birth, full CBC blood panel which was all within normal limits, up to date on DHPP vaccination, rabies vaccination, tested for heartworm which was negative, tested for Lyme disease which was negative, tested for ehrlichiosis which was negative, and tested for anaplasmosis which was negative ( the later three test are all tick transmitted diseases). Se's been dewormed with Panacur, treated with revolution, and on monthly heartworm preventative. She comes with a leash and collar, and your 1st vet visit is free if through one of our participating vets.

We must have an application, sometimes a home visit, reference checked including the vet of current and/or past cats and/or dogs, to approve an application. At the meet and greet, we will need to meet all members of the family including any four legged doggies in your home to assure everyone gets alone. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Savannah, a Naperville Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever for sale in Naperville, or seeking a Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever dog from a breeder in Naperville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Naperville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Naperville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever breeders who help with Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Naperville paves the way for another one to be saved.
