With understanding and patience Bandit's owner can continue to build his confidence and he will continue to thrive. He is very confident in his foster home, and with the other dogs in the home, but he may be shy and quiet when adopted. Because he lacks confidence, he can be reactive with other dogs. He would be great as an only dog with an owner will do positive training with him. Which is easy given how treat motivated he is. If you have another dog, understand dog body language, are patient, and given time, Bandit could get along with another dog. Very slow intros will need to be done and working with the two dogs to assure success.
Bandit will need a fenced in yard. We wouldn't want him out on a lead alone then have a dog come into the yard and hurt him. Absolutely no electronic fences. Only confident dogs should be placed on those type of containment systems. If your gone 8+ hours a day, Bandit isn't the right dog for you. He needs a person who will be around to love him and build his confidence. Given he's a shyer dog, we feel a home with children 7+ would be best as we don't think he would do well with all of the loud noises them come with small children. We want Bandit to Thrive and are looking for the best scenario for him.
Bandit arrived to us back in October of 2016 with kennel cough and skin issues. Both have both been resolved, and his coat is soft and beautiful. He is an awesome dog for the right family who will only do positive reinforcement training. Everyone who meets him loves him. When people see him running around with other dogs, they are surprised that he can be reactive with other dogs. On a leash he's fine, he actually shies away from other dogs as stated previously.
If you think you might be a good match for Bandit, and are interested in meeting him, please go to our website at angelsonwheels.org, click on the applications tab, and complete the on-line adoption application.
Bandit is being fostered in a Naperville, IL home which is where you and your family would go to meet him. All family members, 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 it. 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.

Neutering which is done
Dewormed with panacur, repeated about 2 weeks later
Fecal tested Negative
Three puppy DHPP Vaccination
Monthly Heartworm Preventative while in our care during season

You will also receive a free health exam visit to either Crest Hill Cat and Dog Clinic, Knoll Animal Hospital of Carol Stream, Yorkville Animal Hospital, Midwest Animal Hospital in Orland Park, Countryside Animal Hospital, Springbrook Animal Hospital, 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!
