Story
Mrs. Potts and her son, Chip, are looking for a forever home together! The two are always together and inseparable and their bond is very heartwarming to experience. Mrs. Potts and Chip are potty pad trained. They will cuddle with their human once in awhile but they spend most of their time snuggling together. They get very excited when it's time to eat but they should be fed in a separate area at mealtime if other dogs are in the home. Mrs. Potts was recently spayed, received a dental, and had numerous mammary tumors removed that were benign. She has arthritis that she will need daily pain medication for but she's a happy girl.

Story
Look deep into my eyes! There you will see a silly dog full of love. I think you’ve been waiting for me. I am kind, I am protective, I am fun and even eclectic. I enjoy music, quiet nights, I enjoy toys and playful wrestling. Treats make me happy, but not as happy as you. Dogs can be my friends, and I don’t mind cats, too. I wish to find my way along this journey, may it come to a fruitful end. I hope in my heart to find my forever best friend.  Sincerely,  Allie  Allie has tested well with cats She likes most dogs She's good with older kids, 13+ years of age   Up for adoption through Orphans of the Storm Animal Shelter Learning manners with Full Circle Dog Training  @fullcircledogtrainer To learn more, please contact us directly by calling 847-338-3252 or emailing info@redemptionroadinc.org.

Story
Meet Marlo! This sweet girl comes across a tad timid when first she is approached, but warms up very quickly to any kind human, even a child. Marlo has a loving nature and strives to please her humans. She is quirky and very cute. Marlo loves to play with toys and even carries the little toy bin around at times. She has the ability to learn so much and be a lovely house pup.  Marlo has some stranger danger to work on, but her barks will always alert you to any possible intruder. Marlo was not socialized much with people as a puppy. She was abandoned with her three sisters in the Des Plaines area, and then spent four months in animal control, pretty much growing up in their custody. When Marlo made her way into our program, we saw what great potential she had. Marlo really enjoys being around other dogs. She plays in our pack playgroup often and has many friends. She does, however, do better with medium and large sized dogs.  She tends to jump on tiny dogs and therefore is best matched with dogs closer to her size. Marlo isn't too interested in cats, but might be better off in a home without them or with a very confident (dog-savvy) cat.   Marlo is currently learning how to walk nicely on a leash, has basic obedience and is also crate-trained. After patiently waiting months to be fully vetted and ready, this sweet girl is overjoyed to finally be available for adoption and can't wait to shower her new family with unconditional love and endless happy tail wags every single day. To learn more, please contact us by directly by calling 847-338-3252 or emailing info@redemptionroadinc.org.

Story
Lady Nala you gorgeous girl! She is around 6-years-old, fully vetted, chipped and up-to-date on vaccines. She loves attention, toys to play with, and a cozy home to lay her head down and relax in. Nala takes her time getting to know a new person, but warms up quickly and is all smiles afterwards.  Watch a video of this happy girl in action here: https://bit.ly/lady-nala-video Abandoned in boarding by an owner that never came back for them, Nala and brother Yeti spent a year living in at a kennel. Though they were fortunate to be loved and well cared for there, boarding can never replace a true forever home. Now, with Yeti recently adopted, it's sweet Nala's turn to find her perfect family! We are still getting to know Nala, but her personality is showing lots of smiles and sass! She's a spunky girl that struts when she walks and would make a fantastic hiking or camping partner. She loves chasing tennis balls, so an active family with a fenced in backyard would be ideal. With other dogs, she can be a tad bossy and independent, so a home where she is the only dog or a furry housemate that wouldn't mind her being in charge would be great. Either way, her big smile will brighten any home she enters!

Story
Ruby is a girl full of spunk, joy and wonder. This sweetheart enjoys being around people, getting cuddles and the great outdoors. Ruby was found roaming the streets by a kind-hearted individual. Thanks this compassionate soul, she now has an amazing foster home as well where she is warm, vetted and ready to go on to the next chapter of her life. Ruby tested well with cats and other dogs. She even seems friendly with small children. Ruby is a typical strong, loyal, loving, quick-to-learn, excitable bully. She is getting better on walks, and with practice, she will be amazing. Ruby’s ideal home would have some loving adults, maybe a kid or two over the age of 6 years old and possibly a pup or cat companion.  Ruby is looking for a loving home that will treat her as a member of the family, cherish her as their sweet girl and feed her good treats. In return she promises to potty outside, give plenty of kisses and love her family unconditionally.
