Hi, my name is Joanie and I'm hoping to find my forever home. My foster mom thinks I'm about 1 year old and a Jack Russell mix. I'm super cute, at least I like to think I am. I'm 10lbs, spayed, with lots of energy, but I also love to cuddle on your lap. I am very friendly, house trained with some reminders (especially during playtime), crate trained, and love people and kids.

But because I'm a little high energy, it's probably best if I'm in a home with kids older than 10 years old. I'm currently living with my foster mom and her 45lb lab. We get along great, and have a ball playing together. Most of the time we share pretty well, but there are times I like to have my bone to myself, and not be bothered by him when I'm eating. I'm getting better at sharing, and I have no problem sharing my food and toys with my foster mom. She is currently working with me on my basic commands, and helping me learn how to walk on a leash. I will probably need you to be patient with me, but I promise I am very eager to please. Could you be my forever family?

If you are interested in adopting me, please visit to complete and submit your adoption application!

Joanie's adoption fee is $275.

Joanie will be at the Tinley Park PetSmart this Saturday, December 3rd, from 11-2:30 pm. Please bring your household members and any other dogs to meet her!

About Heather's Foster Dogs

About Our Rescue Group...

Heather’s Foster Dogs strives to educate people through public interaction and to ease shelter populations by placing animals in temporary foster homes where we can address medical and behavioral problems while actively searching for permanent placement. Together, we seek to promote compassion and kindness to all animals, to increase awareness of companion animal overpopulation, and to advocate for responsible pet ownership.

Our Adoption Process...

Who We Look For

In short, Heather’s Foster Dogs is looking for responsible, dedicated, and loving pet owners for our foster animals. This means a couple of things:

-You feel that pets are an important part of the family. They do not spend their days and nights living outside in the yard, chained to a doghouse or locked up in a kennel. Pets belong safe and warm in your home.
-You understand that regular veterinary visits with a licensed veterinarian are important to maintaining the health and well being of your pet. This means regular exams, administering medication when prescribed, and keeping your pet up-to-date on vaccinations.
-You believe in POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT training only and will seek the help of an experienced professional trainer if necessary or recommended.
-You understand that adding a pet to your family is a commitment that should last for the ENTIRE LIFE OF THAT PET.

To adopt a dog from Heather’s Foster Dogs, you must…

-Be at least 21 years of age
-Have a valid form of identification (a driver’s license or
state ID)
-Verify that you are allowed to have a dog of the breed
and size where you currently live
-Understand that a fenced yard may be required for a
dog you are interested in
-Understand that training may be required for the dog
you are interested in
-Understand that HFD reserves the right to check
veterinarian and personal references
-Bring along all household members including any
resident dogs or children to meet the dog you hope to

TO ALL POTENTIAL ADOPTERS: Heather’s Foster Dogs is dedicated to eliminating shelter overcrowding once and for all. We understand the only way to really achieve this goal is by cutting down on the number of unwanted animals born every year. As such, HFD tirelessly promotes spay/neuter for all companion animals, and in fact requires this as part of our adoption agreement. If you currently own an animal that is intact (meaning it is NOT spayed/neutered), and there is no medical reason as to why your pet has not been spayed/neutered, HFD cannot in good faith approve you to adopt one of our foster animals.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE THE FOLLOWING: Heather’s Foster Dogs does NOT ship animals. No matter where you live, no matter how far, you will be expected to meet with HFD in person for your adoption interview and pet pick up.

HFD reserves the right to refuse adoption to any applicant if we feel they are not the best fit for the animal they’ve applied to adopt.

And please, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Email Heather’s Foster Dogs at and we will be happy to speak with you further.
