Is your idea of a workout a trip from the couch to the refrigerator and back? Are you laid back and lazy, preferring to binge watch Netflix rather than compete in a Triathlon?

If that’s you, I am your perfect match. Despite my long and lean physique, I am the world’s laziest dog. I hate going for long walks! Cuddling on the couch, on the other hand, is something I revel in!

I am a very healthy Blue-Tick Coonhound mix. I am just 3 to 5 years old and extremely handsome and well behaved. I am a shy soul. It takes me a while to warm up to people, but once you have my trust, I am your most loyal friend and companion. I am neutered, up to date on my shots, crate trained, house broken and very well behaved.

I love children and adults, and get along very well with other dogs. I don’t like to go to the dog park, though – too much noise and commotion for me.

My only issue (if you really could call it an issue) is that I don’t care for loud noises. Thunder, fireworks or sudden large noises scare the living daylights out of me. I am also kind of fearful of buses and bikes. City living really isn’t for me, but a home in the country with a nice, securely fenced yard would be ideal. I would love the quiet of country life.

Having a great family to cherish me is also on my wish list. I want someone to devote myself to, who will appreciate a low-key, low maintenance, low-energy pooch like me.

I have such a handsome face and unique markings. Definitely one of “nature’s designer dogs”.

My owner loves me to bits, but he is a very active person. He had hoped I would go with him on runs, hiking and other activities, but I am more of a homebody. I really need to be in a country home where I can stay in my comfortable surroundings. A nice back yard to explore at my own pace, and some nice kids to spend time with would be perfect for me.

Please offer me a loving, forever home today. Let’s curl up on the couch together and watch NetFlix.

Love and licks,

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,
