Ty was a stray that was brought to animal control. He was there for about 6 weeks before being brought into LLR.

Ty is a very sweet, friendly, active dog. He has a canine foster sister that he LOVES to play with. When Ty first arrived in his foster home he was crated at night because his foster mom was afraid they’d never stop playing if she didn’t impose a mandatory night time break! As it turns out, they will indeed stop playing and they both get to sleep in bed at night. Ty’s foster home doesn’t have any children, but he was watched for a week by a family with children and they said he was great with their kids and is very gentle. Ty has a very high prey drive so he will not be suitable for homes with cats.

Ty is housetrained and he knows how to ring bells when he needs to go outside. He also knows “sit” and his foster home is working on “lay down” and “no jump.” He gets excited to meet new people and sometimes jumps up on them. At first he wasn’t wild about his crate, but now all his foster family has to say is “go to your house” and he goes right into his crate. He might bark or whine for a minute but always settles down.

Ty was able to scale a 6 foot fence at his foster home so he will always need to be on a lead/tie out when he’s outside. (Believe it or not, he climbed the fence, and then balanced on the top). Ty is a young, energetic dog and would make a great playmate for another dog. Without a playmate Ty will need a very active foster family that likes to go on long walks or runs. He isn’t perfect on leash, his foster family accuse the other dog in the house for teaching him the bad leash manners. He might walk better without the naughty outside influence.

Ty loves people, all of them. He loves to be given attention and is a great snuggle buddy. He’s a “shadow” dog and loves to follow his foster parents around the house. Ty is an affectionate, fun, happy, friendly dog who will make a great pet for a great family.

About Lulu's Locker Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lulu’s Locker Rescue is a nonprofit, volunteer-run companion animal rescue working to bring to light the plight of black cats and dogs in shelters as well as the misconceptions surrounding FIV cats. We aim to lower the euthanasia rate of these animals by educating the public and providing foster care as we seek out permanent homes. We are committed to the protection of the misjudged and wrongly stereotyped through compassion and respect, which we believe both animals and human beings deserve.

We are based out of Frankfort, IL, and rescue cats and dogs in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Our Adoption Process...

We encourage potential adopters to ask friends, family, and Lulu’s Locker about companion animal experiences in their lives. We want to ensure the animal we adopt to you fits well in your home environment. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about long-term animal care prior to adopting! Please contact us via email or phone 708-325-8581.

Everything we do is for the animals in our care, and is aimed at giving them the best possible chance of finding a permanent home.

- Fill out this online Adoption Application to get the process rolling! Copy and paste this URL into your browser -->

- Once your Application is completed, you will have a phone conversation with an adoption counselor.

- Once you’ve been approved, s/he will fill you in on the personalities, history, and behavior of the animals to allow you to make the best choice possible for your living situation. You can ask your counselor any questions you have regarding health, behavior, and long-term care.

- You and all members of your household will then be invited to visit the foster home or boarding facility where the animal is currently living. If you decide adoption is right for you, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee which covers the spay/neuter, wellness exam, vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test (dogs only).

- Animals are subject to a home visit prior to completion of the adoption process.

- You will ALWAYS have continued support from Lulu’s Locker after your adoption! We invite you to contact us at any time with questions or concerns!
