Story
Fred (black male) and Wilma (white female) came to us from DuPage Animal Shelter. Their ages are 3 and 4. There sweet pups are super lovey! They are playful and then snuggly. They are currently in a foster home learning the ropes, which includes potty training. They do not enjoy being crated in their foster home, but traveled on transport in one and dog well. Fred and Wilma are a bonded pair so they must be adopted together. They are also afraid of big dogs so a home with one isn’t ideal for these two. We will continue to update as we learn more about this duo! If interested please apply at: K9EI.dog

Story
Ty is fun loving, full of personality, loves to give kisses and be kissed on his neck. He leans back as if to say, "kiss me". He is dog social and people social. Sometimes takes a few minute to warm up to new people, but this is to be expected. His a little guy in a big world. He is crate trained and housetrained. Ty has a grade 3 heart murmur. He does not show any symptoms of having issues with his heart and most likely was born with the murmur and his body functions as normal. He is such a great dog and deserves a family who will provide him with a backyard to wander, he loves exploring, climbing the garden walls, investigating under trees and bushes. He stands in a tote to take his bath and loves being wrapped in a warm towel to dry off. He wears sweaters to combat the cold and PJ's for fun.

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.

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
Hi there my name is Huey and I am a Chihuahua/Schnauzer/Terrier mix about 7 years old. I have been in the rescue for quite some time as it takes me a little time to trust people. I was abused in my past so on my initial meet and greets with new people I am unsure and sudden movements make me scared. Once I get to know you and trust you you can't get rid of me. Once we are BFFs, I am the most loyal, fun, sassy and most of all cuddly friend. I am looking for my forever home with somebody who is either a stay at home, work from home, or retired as I like to be with my people as much as possible. I am completely up to date on my vetting which includes neutered, rabies vaccine, distemper vaccine, bordetella, negative fecal, negative heartworm, and microchipped. If interested in meeting me please go to the rescue's website www.atailof4paws.org and fill out the application. Once completed email or scan to rescue@atailof4paws.org
