Poor Sage has had a rough time. Her former family must have included a man who mistreated her, she is wary of men now. She was dumped in a high kill animal control in the middle of no where and was lucky enough to have a volunteer find her a placement in a humane society in another state. Poor girl was adopted right away without giving her any time to adjust and she was not happy with the men in her new home and was returned. The humane society decided to kill her then and we were alerted to this baby and arranged for her to come to us instead. She is just the sweetest dog! She loves women and dogs, is quiet in a crate, great on a leash, house trained and super snuggly and affectionate. She is working on some behaviors currently including resource guarding (food, toys, treats, her crate etc). This breed is known for being wonderful with children, and very bonded to their humans. This is the likely reason for her resource guarding; she has lost her family and all she has left is her stuff. We hope to resolve these issues prior to adoption but if not, she will need to be placed in an experienced home regarding resource guarding. She is being fostered in Illinois and is worth the effort! She is only 8 months old, just a baby really and we have great hope that she will turn around in a stable foster home. Her adoption fee is $275 and she is fully vetted. if you would like to meet her.

About ARROW Animal Rescue Revolution on Wheels

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a family run no kill foster based dog rescue located in Normal, IL with foster homes all across the state of Illinois. We rescue dogs from animal control and animal shelters in Missouri, Kentucky, Texas, Illinois and Iowa with more states being added all the time. We also accept owner relinquishments. We fully vet all of the dogs in our rescue, place them in loving foster homes, often with other dogs, cats and kids. We find them forever homes through sites like this as well as Facebook, and Petfinder. We have been involved in rescue for 3 years with other rescues but felt that we would have made other decisions when it comes to euthanizing, how dogs were being treated, and the adoption process. We thought we could do a better job. We only euthanize dogs in our rescue if they are in pain or suffering and cannot be helped. We provide training to dogs that need this prior to adoption.

We also have a pet matching service so if you don't see what you are looking for on our rescue page, please message us and we can help you find the perfect pet, have it transported to us, vet it, and make it available for adoption to you!

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters must fill out an application to adopt on our website. We call all references listed including veterinarian, personal, and condo board or landlord, and our goal is to approve application within 5 days. You are welcome to meet any of our dogs in their foster homes once you have an approved application. Since we are a small family run rescue with a few volunteers at times when there is a high volume of applications it may take longer than 5 days to process your application. You are free to contact us at any point at to check on the status of your application.

After application is approved, we do a home visit either prior to or at the time of the adoption. Minimum adoption donations is $275 for adults and $350 for puppies 9 months or under. Some dogs have sponsorships by donors which will reduce the cost for the adopter. Payment by Paypal to or in cash at the time of the adoption.

There is an adoption contract stipulating that you return the dog to our rescue if for any reason you are not able to keep them. The dog's microchip will be registered to the rescue for the life of the dog. You will be required to keep your pup on heart worm preventative year around.
