Will is a sweet, sweet boy. He loves to cuddle after a few hours of playtime. Squeaky toys are his favorite.
Housebreaking is on-going, but moving steadily in a positive direction. Most nights are mess free and when on free roam in the house he uses puppy pads.
Leash walking will take some getting used to as he has only been in a fenced in yard. Will gets along well with 2 other dogs in the house it wouldn't surprise me if he would get along with cats as well.
Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies.
Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a “teen” or adult dog.
Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping.
We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@yahoo.com for an application or additional details.
Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed.
