Story
Zoey is a sweet soul who craves companionship and affection. A Velcro dog! She would do well in a family that is home often. She is fearful being alone. Due to her fear, I believe she’d benefit from another dog who is confident, calm and patient. She tends to shut down when loud trucks drive by, so walks in the neighborhood have been challenging. With more practice, more training, a pack, and building up her confidence, she may overcome this with someone new! She struts on the trails in the forest preserves and is bold when she runs to “save us” from cicadas and chipmunks. She lives with a kitten and is good. She visits dogs too. She is house trained, but pees and poops in the house regularly. She sleeps with me every night. Between my husband and I. Most mornings I wake up with her against me, under the covers, with her head sticking out. Adorable! She loves to run after balls and gets excited to play with small stuffed animals. She does not destroy her toys. Are you a good fit?

Story
Benito is an energetic and happy 1 year old Australian Sheppard. He loves to play a lot and be outdoors all the time. He loves walks and interacting with the environment. He is somewhat trained and only does bathroom when he is let outside. He would love a yard to run around and play catch. He loves his toys and mental stimulation or else he might chew on stuff. He needs some training as he gets too excited with guests.

Story
Hi- I'm Toffee, and I'm a laid back lady! I was found as a stray, had mange and appeared to have just had puppies. I am fine with male dogs, but am not a fan of female dogs, small dogs or felines! I've been at the shelter for a long time, even though I am a sweet girl. I would be fine with older kids. I am working with a trainer and doing amazing. I take a couple of minutes to warm up, but once I do I'm ready for fun and snuggles! I just want someone to love me. Could it be you?

Story
Hi, I'm Izzy. I was rescued as a stray by the Whiting Animal Shelter in Whiting, IN. Since the shelter has been full, I have been living off and on in a crate in the hallway. I desperately need a foster or adopter to set me free! I am a sweet girl who gets along with dogs and older kids (because I have a lot of energy from being crated so much and I get excited). I will be fully vetted by TTDR upon adoption (up to date on vaccines, spayed and microchipped). I am still in Whiting, IN but can be transported to an approved foster or adopter. I hope to meet you soon!
