Story
Socrates was acquired from an Amish breeder in Michigan, parents on site. He is a wonderful dog 1:1 but has shown heavy resource guarding behaviors. He has a prey instinct towards cats. With children, he can be unpredictable. Older children (teens) and adults he is good. Socs would be best as a single dog or with other Great Danes. His owner should be home more than gone and with experience training Danes or other breeds who have exhibited resource guarding. Socs really is the sweetest guy with his person when one on one. Please reach out with any questions. Happy to discuss his quirks and personality.

**Bright is currently in a foster home. He is available for adoption! To meet Bright, please email applications@chicagocaninerescue.org!**If you're feeling a little down or lonely, Bright is here to brighten up your world! This 11-year-old Great Dane/pittie mix, tipping the scales at 84 pounds, is not just a dog-he's a beam of love and light in furry form!Despite his size, Bright has a heart of gold and a penchant for snuggles that would put even the coziest lap dog to shame. He's a big softie who adores nothing more than cuddling up with his favorite humans and basking in their affection. Bright might look like a tough guy, but he's really a love bug who likes to play!Now, let's talk about Bright's quirks. He's a bit of a scaredy-cat, like an elephant who sees a mouse, especially when faced with new environments or loud noises. But once he feels comfortable, he's a whole new dog! Bright absolutely loves going for walks in the woods, exploring all the sniffs, and then coming home to a cozy snooze.Currently living in a foster home, Bright has won the heart of his foster mama, who describes him as an absolute doll. However, due to his tough early life, Bright has some issues sharing his space with other dogs, so he'll do best as the only furry friend in the home.We're on the lookout for a low-key suburban or rural home where Bright can stretch his legs without the hustle and bustle of city living. Private yard? It's his retirement dream! He's a mellow, easygoing guy who's simply looking for a mellow, easygoing home where he can finally find the love and security he deserves. If you're ready to welcome Bright into your heart and home, get in touch today!** Submit your foster or adoption application at ChicagoCanineRescue.org! **

Hi, I’m Penny! I am approximately 2 years old and a happy girl who loves life and loves my people even more! I love people and going for car rides!

I am potty trained and walk great on the leash. I am currently being fostered in the Chicago suburbs, but can be transported to an approved foster or adopter. I hope to meet you soon!

Story
Name: Genny - Age: 18 months?? - Breed: Dane mix - Weight: 70 poundsAbout Me: I was left in a forest preserve to fend for myself plus my 6 puppies. We all survived! Sadly, I had un-operable fractures of my back leg and it has been amputated. No fear- I walk, jog and can go up and down stairs. I'll only keep getting stronger as I navigate my new world.My requests from you:1. Harder type dog beds or soft thick blankets: easier for me to get up and down. A crate that can be my space.2. My Human: I like my meals on time and I love to cuddle standing up with my person sitting down. Extra points if they can mimic a sloth's slow movements when approaching me and sometimes, I need to lean on you to go down stairs.3. Yard: I shall survey it for my sunbathing spot. It should be fenced b/c foster mom says I am nosey and will keep exploring and not stop.4. Chaos-Control: my home shall be serene, with minimal chaos. No loud barking or sudden movements-please.5. I am good with Sacks-of-Meow or other respectful canines. I am not yet a fan of running and jumping hooligan's aka puppies6. Seeking: A Furever family that appreciates my unique qualities. Do you desire an affectionate, sweet pooch? Look no further! Remember, dear humans, life is too short to rush. Let's take it slow, like a sloth descending from a tree branch. If you're ready to be part of my world let destiny unfold!

Story
LOCAL TN ADOPTION ONLY. The good.....He is kennel trained. Goes in very easily with treats. Will run right in if a treat is thrown in there. Will bark for a few minutes but settles. If he’s in a crate, in a room alone and he hears a lot of commotion, he will bark. If you’ve left and the house is quiet, he’s quiet. He’s great in the kennel if someone is in the same room with him though. He likes being with his people. He happily snoozes in an open kennel during the day if you’re working from home and the kennel is near your work area.Scooby is a goof! There’s not much he takes too seriously. Besides treats. Treats are serious business! He will do just about anything for a treat. Even stuff he really doesn’t want to do. But treats are life. He’s overall an easy dog that is sweet, happy, cuddly and isn’t overly energetic. He loves playing and is a bulldozer but he relaxes and naps a lot too. He doesn’t require mass amounts of exercise. He is more than happy to lounge around in bed and watch tv with his humans. The bad...He snores. It’s not quiet...He hates small dogs, if your neighbor has one he will make it his lifes mission to eradicate it. He is generally good on a leash until aforementioned small dog walks up, then he will happily chill with you while you recover from your rotator cuff repair. LOCAL ADOPTION ONLY IN TN.TThe Adoption Fee Includes Age-Appropriate Vaccinations (DA2PPV, Bordetella, Rabies), Deworming, Spay/Neuter, Microchip, Flea, Tick and Heartworm Treatment and Prevention, and Sheltering.
