Thunder's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Thunder's Story...
Thunder is a mellow, snuggly sweet, five-year-old, 60-pound Lab mix looking for a loving forever home. Thunder’s vision is very minimal…the eye specialist believes that he had distemper as a puppy that caused scarring to his corneas. He has about 15% vision in one eye and about 6% vision in the other. Though he is visually impaired, he does amazingly well at learning the routine and layout of a new location and gets around as well as any other dog. He does bump into things on occasion, so he would need a home where the other pets are a little forgiving of his occasional missteps.

He is very loving and affectionate without being pushy and would make a great companion for any person or canine . He knows the command sit and does so automatically when he smells a treat or hears the crinkle of a treat bag. He is very food-motivated and takes treats gently. He also enjoys the company of other dogs although he might bump into them because of his vision issues. He is good on a leash and rides well in the car. He is crate-trained and housebroken. Lucky Dog Rescue has spent thousands of dollars on his veterinary care and any donations are greatly welcomed to help with his ongoing medical expenses. If you’d like to chip in … please visit:

Thunder is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on preventative. His adoption donation of $200 benefits rescued dogs. To meet and possibly foster or adopt him, please contact Melia at He is currently living in a foster home in Chicagoland would love to be in a loving forever home!

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 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.
