Story
FOSTERED IN: Oak Forest, IL 60452 ESTIMATED DOB: 2017 WEIGHT: 8 lbs KIDS: Visitors Only DOGS: Yes, Calm Only CATS: Unknown HISTORY: Pickles came to us from an Animal Control Facility. ABOUT: Pickles is a special little girl who will need a very special adopter who is willing to manage her heart condition. (See more below) Pickles is such a sweet little girl. She can be a little apprehensive of new people at first but after a few moments she wants everyone to give her love and attention. Pickles has a special affinity for men! Pickles will bring love and joy to any home that adopts her. Pickles is housetrained, does well in the car, and walks well on leash. She is generally very quiet and only barks at normal dog things like the doorbell or an unusual/loud noise. She is crated in her foster home and does very well. She actually spent most of her time in her crate the first few days, so she does appreciate having a safe place to call her own. Her foster home said she is such a good, easy dog. Her foster said it is hard to remember she is sick because she is so happy and full of life. Pickles does well with other dogs, but can only be placed with calm dogs who will not encourage excessive activity from her. We also think Pickles will be best served in a calm, adult-only home due to her medical needs and restrictions. She will likely be fine with gentle child visitors. Pickles has a congenital disease called Reverse Shunting Patent Ductus Arteriosus. Her life expectancy was listed as 1-24 months on her cardiology report, but because she responded to the medication well, we are hopeful she will have a longer life span. Her foster home said the medication made a noticeable difference. Pickles is already quite the survivor at 6 years old! Her cardiology report states that ⅔ of dogs with her condition do not survive past 1 year. Pickles will need an adopter committed to her medication regimen as she receives 5 different medications. The cost of her medications is approximately $80-90/month. Her food also needs to be specific due to elevated kidney levels. She is currently doing well on Purina Pro Plan dry. Pickles is also to remain on an exercise restricted life, she should avoid heavy activity, a lot of excitement, and temperature extremes. Her adopter will need to expect to keep up with regular veterinary visits including potential future cardiology appointments if/as needed. Pickles is not spayed, and cannot be safely sedated for the surgery. Her heat cycles will need to be carefully managed. If you think you have the room in your heart and home for this special-needs girl, more information on our adoption process and our adoption application can be found at www.luluslockerrescue.org.

Story
Spyro is a spunky, two year old Chihuahua mix that is looking for his forever home. Spyro was brought in as a stray and sadly, no one came forward looking for him. Spyro is a big baby and wants to be attached to your hip 24/7. He can be quite vocal and will express his wants and needs if ignored. He does well with other dogs but can be dramatic if they rough house around him. He did well with cats so he should do well but may run and hide if the cat swats or hiss. Spyro hopes to find a forever home that will love and spoil him like the true baby he is. His adoption fee is $235, which includes his vaccines, fecal exam, deworming, heartworm test, heartworm/flea prevention, registered microchip, and neuter.

Story
This tiny guy is Barkley! He weighs in at a whopping 6 pounds! At 3 years old he is hoping to find his forever home after being moved around quite a bit. He was returned to the local animal control we pulled him from due to potty accidents in the home. He does have occasional accidents indoors. With him being so small, it is likely hard for him to hold his urine for long periods. He would need a family who is willing to work with him with possible potty training or just frequent trips outside to potty.He does have luxating patellas on his back legs, which cause him to walk a little funny at times, but do not cause him pain. Our vet believes Barkley is in good shape, and as long as he stays at an ideal weight, he is unlikely to have issues with his legs.He's a sweet little dude who really just wants to be by his people. He's a vocal guy who will let you know he wants attention and to play. Barkley has met dogs of a wide range of sizes and ages and seems to do well. He recently attended an event off-site and met some young kids and seemed to do okay with them as well.

He enjoys his walks and sniffing around. Diego and Dora are a bonded pair and are looking for a forever home together. They are not a huge fan of other dogs.
