This incredibly sweet and sassy girl was a stray that ended up in a high kill shelter in Chicago. Angels on Wheels took one look at her and knew they couldn't leave her there. Her paperwork lists her as a boxer mix app 7-9 yrs old. Jillie ABSOLUTELY loves everyone. If you have hands, Jillie thinks you should be using them to love on her. She's all about giving and receiving love and attention. From the tips of her ears to her ever wagging tail this girl is the epitome of the "All American Love Dog!" She greets everyone with warmth and enthusiasm. And her tail, it wags a mile a minute.
This love bug has the most unbelievable personality. She is just plain happy all the time. She makes everyone smile when they meet her. Jillie is a joy to be around. Her foster parents have other larger dogs and she is content around them, even playful. This sweetheart is polite when other dogs approach. She has been around children and she loves up to them. Jillie likes to lean into a person for a good old fashioned belly scratch. She is such a cool dog with spunk. She does great walking on a leash and will call shotgun when riding in the car.
Jillie wants to please her people. She is quickly learning sit, down, give five, and touch. And she is housebroken. She may have an accident while sleeping at night so she is on an inexpensive medication to keep that from happening. Not knowing her past, she made it perfectly clear that being in confined spaces, like a crate creates anxiety and fear. Her foster parents have patiently worked with Jillie to reassure her there is no reason to be fearful. If you have a treat, you have her heart! She takes treats from anyone and everyone very gently. This sweetheart at one time had a family. But somehow ended up in a very scary place in Chicago. She has so much love and life to give. She deserves her very own forever family who will never throw her away. She deserves to feel safe, secure and loved. Come meet this sweet gal, and let the love fest begin.
If you would like to meet Jillie, please fill out the on-line adoption application at www.angelsonwheels.org and the foster will be in touch within 7 days once the application is processed and if approved! Keep in mind that there may be multiple applicants applying for the same animal(s). It's advised to submit an application immediately if you’re interested in meeting this pet. Emails will slow down the process, and while you are awaiting an email response, which can take several days, we may get applications.
Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but is required prior to making arrangements for a meet and greet as all of our animals are cared for in homes. We can't schedule meet and greets until the application is submitted and approved. We don't have a building so there are no viewing hours. All of our animals are cared for in foster homes by wonderful families who volunteer their time to save these precious souls.
The adoption fee is $150 and includes the spay, dental which is now done, vaccinated for DHPP, rabies vaccination, heartworm and stool parasite testing, received Heartgard, microchip, she comes with a leash and collar, and your 1st vet visit is free if through one of our participating vets.
We must have an application, sometimes a home visit, reference checked including the vet of current and/or past cats and/or dogs, to approve an application. At the meet and greet, we will need to meet all members of the family including any four legged doggies in your home to assure everyone gets alone.
