found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
I live with a little foster brother. I love following him around and playing with him. I also lived in the Burbs where I shared my home with other foster dogs and we all got along. I am a bit reserved when I meet other dogs but I will continue to work on my social skills. I will soon be the Belle of the Ball, you will see!
I used to live in the country in Southern, IL. I had a family with kids that I loved. One day, my family left me at a high kill shelter because they had to move. I know they didn’t have any other choice because they really loved me. I was very confused and sad but that didn’t last long because the Volunteers at IAR saved me. My foster Dad told me there was no way they could leave me there after they saw my beautiful, big brown eyes.
When the IAR rescued me they updated me on all my vaccines and they discovered that I was heart worm positive. Don’t worry! It is not contagious to other dogs or people. I am already halfway through my treatment but I have to very, very still and quiet until I am done. My new family just has to make sure that they help be quiet because I am really a sporty gal!
I would love to have a fenced yard where I can run and play. I would like to have kids in my forever family to remind me of the family I miss so much. I will go with the kids to wait for their school bus and then run errands with my new forever parents. I will make a great jogging companion in case you like to exercise. After we are done with all the days’ activities, I will lovingly sit with my new forever family while they eat dinner, watch TV or just talk about tomorrow’s plans. I will look at them with my big brown eyes, knowing I am blessed to be part of those plans. What do you say? Will you come meet me? All you have to do is fill out an application at: www.illinoisanimalrescue.org and my foster Daddy will bring me over to meet you. I know my perfect family is out there right now and I know you will find me soon. Until then, love Stevie.
Stevie’s heart worm treatment is part of her adoption fee. First, heart worm is NOT contagious to other dogs. The only way a dog can catch heart worm is by an infected mosquito & if they are not under heart worm prevention; which Stevie was not. There are 4 courses of heart worm treatment. 1st course: 28 days of anti-biotics; 2nd - heart worm prevention medication. 3rd: 30 days later 1st injection of Imiticide done by our vets. 4th/last: 30 days later two consecutive days of Imiticide and treatment is done. She will need to be on restricted activity until she gets cleared by the Vet – about 6 months from start to completion. Any questions, please email our Foster Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not let heart worm stop you from adopting this sweet girl.
