Hi! My name is Sawyer. I was a stray that they brought into the shelter in Chicago. I was very confused as to why I was there. A lot of people kept telling me I would find a rescue to take me home but it wasn't happening. I began to wonder why I wasn't getting to go home like some of the other dogs. Was it because of my fur color? Maybe it was my big ears? I was very sad at having to sit in that small cage day in & day out. It was very loud too & that didn't make me happy either. I was there for a long time & I knew my time was coming to an end. I heard some people say I was on the "list". I wasn't sure what that meant but it didn't sound good.
I found out I had 48 hours left to be alive. No one wanted me & the volunteers felt really bad. They kept telling me they were still trying to find someone for me. Then it happened. These 2 girls were at the shelter looking at some other dogs they were going to rescue. The volunteers asked them to take a look at me also. I put on my bestest puppy smile & wagged my tail nervously. Would they like me? Oh please please like me!! They took me out and gave me hugs and kisses and asked if I would like to go home and they would find me my "forever home". I was very excited to be leaving!! I went to a foster home and got to play with other dogs & puppies and go for walks and play with my foster parents kids! It was great! I was hopefully being adopted by this really nice lady who had another dog that I really liked to play with. She was "fostering" me first to see how it went. Her dog though got really sick and has Cancer so I had to go to boarding because my other foster mom can't take me back. I don't mind it so much. I get to go on walks & have other dogs to talk to but it isn't home. I just want a home of my own where I can snuggle at someones feet & lay by their side. Maybe play some ball in the yard & even play with a human or doggie brother or sister. Please don't pass me by! The girls saw something in me that no one else did. Unconditional love. I hope you see it too!!
Rescue Group Info...
Blackdog All Breed Dog Rescue is a licensed, all volunteer, not for profit organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abandoned dogs from high kill shelters. Working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians and trainers we are able to provide compassionate care for our dogs in need until their forever home is found.
We rescue dogs that are scheduled for euthanasia at the shelters here in IL & NC.
We have various adoption events in different locations. Please check our website or Facebook page for the current months events.
Going to our website and filing out an application is the first step in our adoption process. We ask for references on the application & will contact them before proceeding further. We also require a meet & greet with the dog/puppy up for adoption & any & all dogs & family members living in the home. We will at the time of the meet & greet do the home visit check. All Dogs & puppies are up to date on their vaccinations. The adoption fee covers vaccinations, Rabies Vaccine, Bordatella, Spay or Neutering & Microchip. All dogs & puppies go through a course of deworming & have fecal tests done. Everyone is started on Heartworm preventative & Flea/Tick preventative. We try & temperament test all of our dogs to the best of our ability in order to match up the dog with the right family. All dogs/puppies are in foster homes so they are used to the home environment where they can work on potty training & behavioral training prior to being placed in their loving new homes. Adoption fees are puppies 0-6 months $300, 7-12 months $275 & over 12 months $250.
We serve the Chicagoland area up to a 60 mile radius at the present time.
