Story
We adopted this sweet boy in August 2018 when he was just three months old. Chip was great with my two small children. He quickly won over our hearts with his sweetness, cleverness and his endless desire to share his toys. When we decided to adopt another dog in Aug. 2021, he adjusted to his new brother just fine. His brother was 3 months old and a pitbull terrier mix. But as his brother grew bigger, Chip’s behavior changed. Chip did not like to share his toys or treats, and displayed signs of dominance and aggression towards his brother that would oftentimes result in fights. On top of that, there was a major change in our household when I split from my partner last year, and this exacerbated the divisiveness between his fur brother. In my kids’ best interest, it is with a heavy heart to have to try to find a new home for Chip, as we feel he would thrive best as a sole dog where he can truly display his fierce loyalty and lovability for years to come. ❤️

Story
Hey there, I'm Scooby! I'm almost a year old and they say I'm a Bull Mastiff mix. Right now, I'm about 70 lbs, but I'll probably bulk up to around 90 lbs when I'm all grown. I used to live with some humans, but they couldn't keep me anymore. It was really stressful being in a shelter, I kinda shut down. But then, these amazing folks from a local rescue brought me to a foster home. Within just a day, I started feeling like myself again. I absolutely adore hanging out with other dogs! Playing, sharing toys and bones, it's the best. I'm all good with going potty outside and chilling in my crate. Oh, and I need an above ground fully fenced yard, you know, for safety reasons. I gotta admit, I'm pretty shy around new people and places. I'm a bit of an introvert, you could say. But once I get to know you, I'll be your loyal shadow. New folks take me a while to warm up to, so I'd prefer a calm home where there aren't too many strangers coming and going. Kids, though? I'm cool with them. They seem to understand me quicker than adults. And don't worry, I'm all about love, no aggression here. If things get overwhelming, I'll just retreat to my cozy crate until I feel better. Local adoptions only. We do not adopt out of the state of Illinois. Scooby is being fostered in a private home. Appointments to meet him will be set up for approved adopters only. His adoption fee is $300 which includes all age appropriate vaccines. He is neutered, microchipped and Heartworm negative. He has also been kept on both flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.

Story
Hi my name is Socks! I’m a happy, healthy and playful little pup. I was born on 2/13/24. My mom came to New Start Dog Rescue when me and my siblings were still in her tummy. So we were born in a foster home and have been well taken care of since birth. I currently weigh 14 lbs. Not sure who my dad was but my mom is 35 lbs. and is a Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler mix. I’ll probably get to be more than that cause I’m a chunky baby right now! The rescue sent out a DNA test on me and my siblings, turns out we’re part Australian Cattle Dog, American Pit Bull Terrier, American English Coonhound, Miniature Pinscher, and Supermutt! Talk about a great mix! Local adoptions only. We do not adopt out of the state of Illinois. Puppies are being fostered in a private home. Appointments to meet them will be set up for approved adopters only. The adoption fee is $350 which includes all age appropriate vaccines. The puppies are neutered/spayed and microchipped.
