Story
I adopted Kobe from my local shelter when he was roughly 8 months old. He is roughly 2 years old now. He is very hyper and overactive. We got him as a companion for our other German Husky mix. They get along just fine. We think he has something mentally wrong with him, when we let him outside, he will spin and jump in circles, cries over and becomes aggressive over rocks, does not like cats. We are looking to rehome him with someone that can give him constant attention and training. He does listen to some commands. Unfortunately we just brought a newborn into our home, and he is too hyper to let him run free and we do not want to keep him caged up. Best if he is a home with no other dogs or cats, due to hyperactivity and he will not eat.

Rihanna is a 3-5 year old female pit bull mix.  She is up to date on all her vaccines, fixed, and microchipped.  She is such a calm, cuddly girl.  She loves to go on walks and chase the squirrels.  She does well with older children but has not been around younger children.  She would also be better off in a home as an only dog.  She rarely barks and is housebroken.  She is such an affectionate girl.   Her adoption fee is $250 To adopt Rihanna email us at kakf3133@gmail.comApril 15, 2024, 3:14 pm

Doberman Pinscher

Good with kids, Not good with dogs, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Max is a 9 year old male dobie who found himself needing a new home when his owner developed Alzheimer's.  He is very selective of other dogs so he would probably do best in a home as an only dog.  And he has not met a cat but has chased after smaller dogs so might not care for them.  Due to his size and temperament he would be best with older children as well.  He can be a little nervous at first and unsure but once he warms up he is a silly guy who loves to play.    He is pretty independent but does want to be in the same room as his people, just not always cuddling.  He is fixed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.  He would do best with someone who knows the breed. His adoption fee is $300 To adopt Max email us at kakf3133@gmail.comApril 15, 2024, 3:14 pm

Story
*****AVAILABLE NOW-I am in Yorkville Il awaiting my forever family******* Hi Everyone, My name is Oscar and I would like to add some wags to your tail. I am a precious 7 month old Teddy Bear (Shih Tzu/Bichon) baby who is looking for my forever people!! True to the adorable-sounding name, Teddy Bear dogs are a hybrid or designer cross breed of a Shih Tzu and a Bichon Frise. They are also known as a Zuchon or Shichon. Teddy Bear dogs are small in stature, but they make up for it with big hearts. They are loyal, loving to a fault, and capture the hearts of anyone they lay their eyes on. These dogs captured the hearts of the world around the 2000s when the designer breed became truly popular. I am going to make an excellent addition to a loving family!! I am adorable, smart, loving and sweet as sweet can be. I have a great temperament!! Investing your time and love into me will be so worth it!! I am a breeder release due to the failing economy. I am good with children and other animals. Please add a lotta unconditional love, sloppy kisses, tail wags and endless happiness to your family and contact jbrescuerangers@yahoo.com for an adoption application and bring me home. I will come with the works (Neutered, up to date on everything, micro chipped, fecal, heart worm tested if age appropriate, monthly heartworm, flea and tick prevented, a free vet visit and medical insurance). What more could a new family ask for? Love and Kisses, Oscar 332500901402353J
