Meet SKIPPY! This precious pup is a 1 year old, male, 20 lb, Beagle / Jack Russell Terrier mix (guess). Skippy is a super happy and sweet boy! He is great with other dogs (lives with 2 others), great with people and kids, and is housetrained. Skippy came from a kill-facility in Kentucky where he was on the list to be euthanized. We were told that he "had an odd gait at times" from a "leg injury", but was fine. When he arrived, it was obvious that there was something else going on. This darling boy shakes all over, but it is mostly concentrated in his hind quarters. It gets worse when he is excited or nervous, but it does calm down. In any case, he is not bothered by it AT ALL! He is super playful, LOVES to go on long walks and when he runs it is the cutest thing EVER because his bum bounces to and fro down the street, and is a huge snuggler! Skippy recently saw a Neurologist who recommended an MRI (paid for by LLR) for a more definitive diagnosis and to see if anything can be done for his condition, but she agreed that he is a wonderful pup that will make a fun and loving addition to a family. He will bring you joy and giggles! Fill out our application right away, so you can be Skippy's lucky Forever Family!


NOTE: We do NOT adopt out of state. Our range is no further than 50 miles from Chicago. This is because we PERSONALLY do home visits for every single dog / puppy. Exceptions ONLY in certain cases where a sweetie has issues (medical / behavioral / special needs) and we have had him / her for a longer time. We will then travel to the Moon for a Forever Family!

About Lovin' Life Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lovin' Life Rescue is a Chicago-based, young, 501(c)(3) non-profit, GREEN, companion animal rescue organization with a no-kill policy. United and inspired by our compassion for all animals, we focus our talents and previous rescue experience on saving innocent dogs and cats that are homeless, neglected or abused. In addition to supporting and participating in spaying & neutering, our contribution to helping make Chicago a No-Kill city is to educate the community with the simple mantra that Pets are Family… they are not disposable. We actively advocate local concerns, focusing in particular on dog-fighting issues and education, as well.

Our Adoption Process...

Lovin' Life Rescue is dedicated to finding Forever Families for our precious dogs & cats. Our adoption process is set up to make sure that our sweetie is the right match for you. If you are interested in adopting, please follow our required procedures:

You must be at least 24 years old.

Fill out an application. (This helps us learn more about you to determine if your lifestyle is the best fit for the potential “adoptee”.)

Participate in an interview with an LLR Adoption Counselor.

Schedule a Home Visit with an Adoption Coordinator. (This is to ensure the home is safe for the animal.)

Sign an Adoption Contract and make a tax deductible Adoption Fee Donation. This amount varies and starts at $300 for dogs & puppies, $100 for cats & kittens, and $100 for kittens being adopted as a pair. Additionally, kittens must either be adopted as a pair or must go to a home with another cat.

All of our sweeties are microchipped, spayed / neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, FIV & Feline Leukemia tested, and treated for parasites (worms, fleas, mites, etc.).
