Thunder is a mellow, very quiet, snugly sweet, five-year-old Lab/Shar Pei mix looking for a loving family. Thunder was rescued from a pound in Gary, Indiana where he had been found wandering the streets. He has a bump on his head and an injury to one of his rear legs from being hit by a car but this doesn't affect him one bit. Thunder has poor vision but gets around just fine and even so, he loves to play fetch although hide-and-go-seek is probably his favorite game with humans. He is full of tail wags and kisses for the people he loves accepting anyone that he meets. He knows the command sit and does so automatically when he smells a treat or is offered dinner. All food and snacks are taken with extreme gentleness. He also enjoys the company of other dogs and has learned to watch for smaller dogs so he can move out of their way. If they bark, he is interested but remains quiet. While he enjoys time outside to sniff and investigate, he's also perfectly happy lying at your feet while you work or watch TV. Thunder is looking for a quiet home where his family can keep him on a solid routine. He is good on a leash and rides beautifully in the car. He is crate-trained and quite relaxed in there overnight as well as a full workday. This very smart, low-maintenance boy learned quickly that he is not allowed on furniture in his foster home and respects the boundaries. Thunder is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on preventative. His adoption donation of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog Rescue. To meet and possibly foster or adopt him, please contact Melia at Melia88@Comcast.net to get a foster or adoption application sent to you. He is currently living at a foster home in a Chicago suburb.

About Lucky Dog

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a very small group of independent dog rescuers. All of the dogs that are available for adoption were saved from needlessly being euthanized in high kill shelters. Once a dog is brought into our care, it receives all of the vetting that is necessary including a spay/neuter surgery, HW test, and vaccinations. A foster home is then provided for the dog until a forever adoptive home can be found. When a foster home is not available, the dogs will be placed in paid boarding until they are adopted.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of these dogs are currently located in foster homes or paid boarding either in Chicago, IL or surrounding areas. An appointment can be made to view any of the animals at the convenience of the potential adopter and the foster.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee for each of the dogs is $200.00. That is to cover the cost of getting the animal spayed/neutered, HW tested and completely UTD on vaccinations. An adoption application can be obtained by contacting us by email at melia88@comcast.net. Once the application has been received and reviewed, a meet and greet will be arranged with your family and the dog you are interested in. A home visit will also be done prior to any adoption being completed.
