Fiona was found as a stray and was never claimed by an owner.

Fiona is an awesome, easy dog. She has never had a potty accident in her foster home and she does not need to be crated. She does not live with children, but she is gentle, calm, and friendly with every child they encounter on walks. Fiona does not live with other dogs, but she has been friendly and appropriate with all the dogs they meet on walks. She is also good with her foster grandma’s small dog when they have visits.

Fiona clearly had a loving owner before finding herself at animal control. They must have showed their love through food as Fiona was considerably overweight. She is currently on weight-loss food and goes on three brisk walks a day to try to get her down to a healthy weight. You can see that Fiona loves food because she turns into a bit of a diva and will bark at you if you can’t prepare her food as fast as she would like. She will also come and bump your hand when she wants attention, or if you stopped before she felt satisfied.

Fiona is very flexible. She doesn’t mind lounging at home watching movies, and she also does well in busy environments and even got to go to “bring your dog to work day.” She loved all the attention that was showered upon her. Fiona loves everyone she meets, and they can’t help but love her back. She would be great in politics or sales!

Overall she’s generally a bit lazy, but she does get very excited to go on her walks. On nice days she likes to stop periodically and roll around in the grass. Although Fiona is allowed on the furniture she generally prefers to lay on her dog beds...because it’s easier than jumping up on the couch.. You won’t need to worry about Fiona jumping any fences.

Fiona is one of those dogs that we think would adapt well to almost any living situation and would be a great choice for a first-time dog owner. Her foster mom describes her as: Gentle, Calm, Easy-going, Sweet, Affectionate.

About Lulu's Locker Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lulu’s Locker Rescue is a nonprofit, volunteer-run companion animal rescue working to bring to light the plight of black cats and dogs in shelters as well as the misconceptions surrounding FIV cats. We aim to lower the euthanasia rate of these animals by educating the public and providing foster care as we seek out permanent homes. We are committed to the protection of the misjudged and wrongly stereotyped through compassion and respect, which we believe both animals and human beings deserve.

We are based out of Frankfort, IL, and rescue cats and dogs in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Our Adoption Process...

We encourage potential adopters to ask friends, family, and Lulu’s Locker about companion animal experiences in their lives. We want to ensure the animal we adopt to you fits well in your home environment. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about long-term animal care prior to adopting! Please contact us via email or phone 708-325-8581.

Everything we do is for the animals in our care, and is aimed at giving them the best possible chance of finding a permanent home.

- Fill out this online Adoption Application to get the process rolling! Copy and paste this URL into your browser -->

- Once your Application is completed, you will have a phone conversation with an adoption counselor.

- Once you’ve been approved, s/he will fill you in on the personalities, history, and behavior of the animals to allow you to make the best choice possible for your living situation. You can ask your counselor any questions you have regarding health, behavior, and long-term care.

- You and all members of your household will then be invited to visit the foster home or boarding facility where the animal is currently living. If you decide adoption is right for you, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee which covers the spay/neuter, wellness exam, vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test (dogs only).

- Animals are subject to a home visit prior to completion of the adoption process.

- You will ALWAYS have continued support from Lulu’s Locker after your adoption! We invite you to contact us at any time with questions or concerns!
