Story
Please visit leiashope.org for our adoption process. Requirements: Secure PHYSICAL fenced yard Thea is a former breeder dog that is so grateful to be in rescue and a home! She has been soaking up the love and attention since joining Leia's Hope! She is a sweet gal that loves to snuggle next to you in bed at night and in the recliner when watching TV. Thea gets super excited for treats and probably never knew of such a pleasure before rescue. She is an easy going gal and gets along great with other dogs, but we believe she would be ok being the only pet. Thea is beginning to play with toys and this is always so fun to watch a former mill dog do normal dog things! Thea is not leash trained and will need a secure physical fenced yard. Thea's adoption is $375. She is spayed, received a dental, current on vaccines, microchipped and on monthly flea and heart worm prevention. Visit leiashope.org for next steps! PLEASE NOTE: We are a volunteer ran rescue with full time jobs. Please allow 7-10 days for application processing. All of our dogs are in foster homes and a meet and greet is done ONLY after an approved application. We do adopt out of the area. However, we do not ship or provide transportation. You must come to the location of the dog to meet and adopt. NO EXCEPTION. All family members and dogs must be present at the meet. Dogs are a commitment for THEIR lifetime. For puppies this could be 15 years. If YOU cannot commit to the lifetime of the DOG, please do not apply. Puppies under 9 months must go to a home where there is someone home frequently (works from home or a partner is home), can adequately socialize and train the puppy, and can keep up with puppy energy!

Pekingese

Size

Details
Not good with kids, Good with dogs, Needs experienced adopter, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Location: Decatur, IL Requires a secure physical fenced yard, another dog or puppy mill experience. Alice is a puppy mill survivor! She is still learning the ways of being a pet and adjusting to life in a home. Alice is shy and insecure with strangers (especially men) and will bark at them. Her new family will need to understand this and take things slow when introducing new people and having guests. We recommend short visits that are positive to help her be ok with new people. She would not be suited in a home that has many guests. Alice likes to survey her world perched on a chair or couch and this probably makes her feel safer as she can see more. She has accepted and enjoys attention from her foster mom and will sit on her lap and be petted and brushed. She is foster mom's shadow and follows her everywhere and gets under foot, making her less than ideal for someone with mobility problems. Alice does not currently interact a lot with the resident dog but she watches and she is learning. It is recommended another dog be in the home or someone who has experience with puppy mill dogs. Alice prefers to be near her person at night and can sleep in a crate as long as she can see her foster mom. Alice is considered a flight risk and will need a secure physical fence to keep her safe. Alice's adoption fee is $375. She will be spayed and receive a dental April 26 and ready to go home the first weekend in May. She is current on vaccines and on monthly flea and heart worm prevention. Please visit leiashope.org for our adoption process. NOTE: WE ARE A VOLUNTEER RAN ORGANIZATION AND OUR APPLICATION PROCESS CAN TAKE 7-10 BUSINESS DAYS, DEPENDING ON OUR AVAILIBILITY AND YOUR REFERENCES. ALL OF OUR DOGS ARE IN FOSTER HOMES AND NOT AT A CENTRAL LOCATION. AN APPROVED APPLICATION IS REQUIRED BEFORE WE DO MEET AND GREETS. WE DO NOT SHIP OR TRANSPORT DOGS. YOU MUST COME TO THE LOCATION OF THE DOG TO MEET AND ADOPT.

Story
Location: Decatur, IL Emerald is a puppy mill survivor! She is still learning the ways of being a pet and adjusting to life in a home. Emerald is sometimes shy and insecure with strangers (especially men) and will bark at them. Her new family will need to understand this and take things slow when introducing new people and having guests. We recommend short visits that are positive to help her be ok with new people. Emerald has discovered all the joys of toys and likes to play with them. She spins in circles when she is happy or excited. Emerald is not sure about grass but is getting a little more comfortable with being outside. She likes to lay on the concrete in the sun. She gets along great with other dogs and will play with them, but she can also entertain herself. She is good with snuggles from people but is unsure about being picked up and will run away at first. This should get better with time and as she learns to trust. Emerald is considered a flight risk and will need a secure physical fence to keep her safe. Someone with mill dog experience is needed or another canine companion in the dog. Another dog will help her continue her studies in being a pet. Emerald's adoption fee is $375. She is spayed and current on vaccines and on monthly flea and heart worm prevention. Please visit leiashope.org for our adoption process. NOTE: WE ARE A VOLUNTEER RAN ORGANIZATION AND OUR APPLICATION PROCESS CAN TAKE 7-10 BUSINESS DAYS, DEPENDING ON OUR AVAILIBILITY AND YOUR REFERENCES.

Story
Please visit leiashope.org for our adoption process. Located in Decatur, IL Marty is an easy going gal that was used for breeding purposes. It's obvious she has spent some time in a home and is laid back and easy to care for. Marty enjoys being outside and checking things out.

Story
This adorable little lady is Tootsie. She is roughly 5 years old and only 37lbs. She was found as a stray and as soon as her hold was up she came to IEBR. She tested positive for heart worms and as been fully treated and doing great. As we got to know Tootsie in her foster home it seems most likely she was abused with her previous owners but she learned to trust her foster parents and is a super sweet girl. She is crate trained but prefers to sleep with her foster mom. Because of her past abuse we are looking for a home with no children and a calm fur sibling or be an only dog. Are you that family? If you are interested in Tootsie, please visit our website: www.ilenglishbulldogrescue.org, and read through our adoption criteria to see if you meet our requirements. If you do, please fill out an application to adopt. Tootsie's adoption fee is: $650.00 Visit us on Facebook: Visit us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IllinoisEnglishBulldogRescue
