Hi there! I'm Ducky, a very fun 12-year-old shih tzu mix who absolutely loves loves loves people! I am great with other dogs and cats, and enjoy their company. I know how to sit up and beg for treats, and am a very spry little guy. I am a good watch dog as I like to keep an eye on things outside and am the first to alert if there are any dangerous birds or squirrels in the yard! I'd be just fine with gentle kids, and am a joy to be around. I can't wait to find someone who will love me and spoil me in my golden years. Is that you?

About Young At Heart Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Young At Heart Pet Rescue is a non-profit rescue organization specializing in the rescue and rehoming of mature dogs and cats. Our goal is to decrease the euthanasia rate for older, adoptable animals and to educate the public on the benefits of adopting a mature animal.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are located in foster homes and our cats are located at Lake Zurich's Petco or at Best Friends Pet Care in Prairie View. We are a small group where we believe in quality over quantity, so that each pet we rescue has a wonderful life while it's with us, and an even better life when it is adopted.

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters must fill out an application before an appointment to meet a dog will be scheduled or a go home meeting with a cat can be scheduled.
