Bandit is a super sweet, mellow puppy, and very friendly. He is incredibly smart, learns quickly, and is very, very treat motivated. He can be a little jumpy when he first sees you as he gets excited. He absolutely loves the dogs in his foster home, and is friendly and loving to all people. He lacks confidence and his new family will need to use positive reinforcement. Because he lacks confidence he may take some time to get use to a new dog. When he first meets a new dog he will growl, but we feel with slow and supervised intros over time he should be fine. If you have a home without other dogs great, because he loves people. He will great you in the morning with wagging tails and kisses. He hasn't been around very young children, and we feel he would be best in a home with children 6+. We aren't sure how he would do with all of the hustle and bustle that goes with small children and if that will scare him.
His favorite time of day is treat time. He is very food motivated, which will making training easier. He's always happy and his tail is forever wagging as is his brother. He does very well at pottying outside but is taken outside every few hours with the resident dogs. We we would call him housetrained, but he isn't exposed to carpeting often so we don't know how he will do with that. .
He is not crate trained, but gated in the kitchen and family area. If you plan on crating, please be sure to do your research because crating is a process and not something that happens overnight. He is totally fine with dog friendly felines. Just ignores them. He is slow to walk on a leash and collar because he is on them that often, so his new family will need to continue to slowly work with that. A physical fenced in yard is required to adopt this pup. We feel he needs to be adopted into a home with someone who is home during the day to work on his confidence. Leaving him home alone all day would not be good for him.
This pup is being fostered in a South Naperville, IL home, with his brother which is where you and your family would go to meet her. All family members, including 4-legged, must be present at the meet and greet to adopt. In order to schedule a meet and greet, please submit and adoption application which can be found on-line at http://angelsonwheels.org/canine-adoption-application/ Once we receive the application we will process. For additional information about our adoption process, please go to our website at angelsonwheels.org and click on the adoptable tab.
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. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
The adoption fee of $350.00 includes:
Neutering which is now down
Dewormed with panacur, repeated about 2 weeks later
Monthly Heartworm Preventative while in our care during season
Monthly Flea Prevenative while in our care during season

You will also receive a free health exam visit to either Crest Hill Cat and Dog Clinic, Yorkville Animal Hospital, Midwest Animal Hospital in Orland Park, Springbrook Animal Hospital,Countryside Animal Clinic of Carol Streatm or Naperville Animal Hospital.
Although we make the best guess on the breed and size of our dogs, because they come from shelters or are strays, we can never be completely certain of the genetic makeup of the dog. Breed and weight at maturity are only guesses. All we can tell you for sure is that they are 100% RESCUED! If an animal is still posted for adoption, he/she is still available. If you see this this post, this puppy is available for adoption so there is no need to email asking about availability.
Thank you for looking at our rescued animals!
