MooShu is such a sweetie. Aside from looks, this is how we know he has some chocolate lab in him. He is a social pup that like to be included. We recently moved out of our physical location and he was there with us the whole time. Walking back and forth with us, laying down, playing, learning new trainings from ourselves and other dog owner friends.

Best way to describe this dog is happy. Always happy. He lets you know when he needs to go out. He loves kisses so much that we named him MooShu which means “kiss, kiss”. He thinks he’s a lapdog and particularly likes female humans, although he likes everyone. Also, rides well in the car.

We found MooShu as a stray in the city. He was running around and was very skinny, had fleas, and no microchip. Three sets of neighbors (including ourselves) got him on a leash to have a place to sleep. Since then the three parties have been paying for him to be checked up at the vet, have paid for his shots, flea treatment, food, crate, bones and leash. He has been neutered, received all shots, heart and flea treatments/medications, and a good bath. We put him on Lost Dogs of Illinois and have had no response. He didnt look very well taken care of, but was such a sweet pup at the time that we all decided to help in rehoming him.

We are the household that offered to home him for now because we have a large enough house. The other neighbors either have 3 dogs, or cats. MooShu is now ready to move out of his foster home and into his FURRever home.

We would keep him, but we have a little furry kitty named Kyanite, and they don’t get along. Like most terrier type dogs, he runs after her when she is around. We are currently keeping them in separate rooms as we foster him back to health and rehome him.

MooShu comes with dog crate and behaves very well once he is in it. He is house trained and will not poop or pee inside. He is a very chill dog when given the attention. We often talk about how he would be a great porch dog on some property. We walk him 2-4 times a day and then other than that he kinda just hangs out with us.

Again, we love this pup, but are not able to be good dog owners. We work from home, then travel a lot for extended periods of time. Kitty life is much more manageable for us and we want to be able to hang out with our kitty more in all parts of our house.

About Chicago Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Pets available for adoption can be viewed on our website at

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
