We would love to tell you more about super-smarty-pants George:

George has quite the trick repertoire. He knows sit, down, stay, come, leave it, watch (eye contact), paw, boom (play dead), time for bed (go to his crate), and stick-em up. He also taught his foster parents that when he brings them his harness he wants to go for a walk (yep, he did this one on his own). Now they can say “go get your harness” and “go get your leash” and he will go get it and bring it to them. He’s very smart and very trainable. He would be great fun for someone who likes to teach unique tricks.

George absolutely loves his people. He always wants to be by you, and it’s even better if he can be touching you. He loves cuddling and can miraculously squeeze himself into the open 6 inches on the couch so he can sit by you. His crate is kept in the bedroom with his foster parents and he willingly goes in it at night and doesn’t make a sound. He does have some anxiety when his people leave and will try to break out of his crate. He doesn’t bark or cry, he just tries to get out so a strong crate is a must for him. (His fosters are using a KONG brand crate and it works well.) George was somewhat fearful of people when he was first rescued and is still anxious and fearful in situations with a lot of new people or a lot of activity. He would do best in a low-traffic household.

He loves going for walks, but overall George is a pretty low-energy,chill kind of guy. He doesn’t need tons of exercise to wear him out, just a few walks a day or some time out in a fenced yard. (A tall secure fence. He had one incident where he jumped a less secure fence.) George really just likes to lounge around the house and be with his people.

George would love to become part of your family. In return he will provide unconditional love, and he will make sure you know it! He’s a super smart very affectionate boy. He would be great for someone looking to adopt a dog past the hyper puppy stage.

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!
