Story
Hi, It is with a sad heart that I have to find a new home for my big buddy. Oliver is just alittle under 2 years old and is full of love and joy. Due to family changes, I am having to relocate and can not bring him with me. He is such a good boy. He has spent his life sharing his home with another dog and a cat without issue. He loves kids and attention. He is the dog that will want to snuggle like a lap dog and rest his head in your hand. He loves his toys and people. Please consider him if you are good people and have a safe and loving home. He is very much still a puppy and has the energy that goes with that. He loves to run around and play and will bring you toys to throw for him.

Story
Harry is an adorable 6-month-old Great Dane mix with a striking black and white coat, making him look like a cute little cow! He is very sweet and a bit shy at first, but he loves spending time outdoors. Harry has a fracture in his left hind leg and currently has a splint that needs to stay in place during his healing period. He will require rest and low activity levels until he fully recovers. Anderson Humane will continue to provide treatment and support to Harry's adopters throughout his recovery. If you have the patience and love to help Harry heal and grow into the wonderful dog he is, he could be the perfect addition to your family! Stop in and meet Harry in person during our adoption hours. For more information, email northaurora@ahconnects.org or call us at 847-697-2880 x: 80, and the staff will be happy to help you. Our dogs and puppies go home spayed/neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested (7 months and over), and up to date on core vaccines, heartworm, flea, and tick preventatives. Their adoption also includes a free-vet exam at one of our participating veterinarians.

Story
A few years ago, this sweet girl was found dumped along the fence of our rescue! She was skin and bones and needed immediate help, so we named her MayDay. Our best guess is she around 6 or 7 years old and a Great Dane/ Staffshire terrier mix. She is very gentle, loves people, and really enjoys car rides. Mayday gets along with males, but is not very playful with other dogs. She would do best as the only fur baby in the home. Since she has been a kennel dog her whole life, MayDay is not pot trained so she will need a family who understands that. This dear girl would love a chance to live out her days in the comfort of a home with a family who will love her! If you want to give MayDay that chance, find us at https://www.tailsoftheforgottenpaws.org/ to fill out an application or on facebook (tails of the forgotten paws)

Story
Hello world, my name is Agatha! I am a 7 month old Great Dane girlie and I'm doing my best to learn how to be a dog over here in my foster home. So far, so good! I like the other dogs and I will need a dog friend in my forever home who can keep showing me how to live the good life! I think I'd probably be fine with cats, too. I like the older kids I've met and I think I'd also like little ones! I am working on my puppy training but my forever family will need to keep working with me since my foster fam says I don't have "manners" yet, whatever those are. I am happy to report that I'm doing well in my crate, and I'm working on potty training but I need frequent trips outside. I'm getting the hang of it though, I promise! Though I can be timid, once I get to know you, I am a total love bug. I am trusting of my human friends and I like to give kisses and cuddles. I will follow you everywhere and lay my head on you after you've had a long day. If you're looking for a lovable lanky lady, I am ready to find my future family and I'd be thrilled to meet you! My adoption fee is $800 - This includes Gastropexy Surgery when I'm of age!

FAST FACTS:*2 Years Old - 120 Pound*Very Loyal, Affectionate, Smart*Low/Medium Energy*Kid Friendly*Dog Friendly - Would Love a Doggie Companion*Potty and Crate Trained*Training Required*Fenced Yard PreferredBIO:Hi there! My name is Olivea and I am an aspiring lap dog in a veeeeeery large body! But my body wasn't always this healthy 120-pound figure you see today; you see, I was unloved and severely malnourished when rescued (I only weighed about 40 pounds, can you even believe it?!) but thanks to my devoted, attentive foster momma I have gained weight and felt love for the first time in my life. Let me tell you how much I enjoy being a beloved family member: I adore people of all ages (including the toddlers I've met) and am very happy to have a doggie pal to keep me company. I would thrive in a family with kids and other dogs - I adore the comfort of family. Even though I am extra large, I make great attempts and trying to fit on your lap for snuggles, I hope you don't mind! And my tail never stops wagging when I have two- and four-legged companions to love! My foster momma jokingly calls my tail its own power source, so I might accidentally knock very tiny children or potted plants over when I am especially happy, but otherwise I have excellent household manners and am never purposefully destructive. I am already potty and crate trained, though my foster momma says she doesn't need to crate me when she leaves the house because I enjoy lounging in my bed or on the couch until she returns (this life of luxury thing is amazing!) My dream home will include a big family and another dog or two, a fenced yard so I can play with my pals and lounge in the sun. I am pretty low energy overall and do not need a lot of exercise, so an occasional walk would be fine but I am not going to be your marathon training buddy haha! I could use some extra work on my leash walking skills; I was likely previously chained up in my prior life so I am extra alert of my surroundings on walks and can be protective of the other dog in my foster home when we are strolling the neighborhood. Fetching Tails requires adopters of young dogs like me to sign us up for training classes, and I am a quick learner (especially when treats are involved - I am very food motivated!) so I think we will have a great time learning new skills together and seeing how great a family pet I can be! Will you give me the luxurious home life and special place in your heart as your beloved companion? Then hurry up and fill out an adoption application today!Love,OliveaIf you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Please contact Kim for more information about this pet.Thanks for your interest in a pet from A.R.F.! If you see a pet here, they are still available for adoption and you should apply through our adoption application on our website at  https://www.arf-il.org/adopt/application/   Scooby is a 3 year old male who weighs in at 100 pounds.  This dog's adoption fee is $550.  If you are still interested, please read more below. Meet Scooby!! This giant came to ARF as his aging owner got sick and could no longer care for him. Leaving the only home he had ever known was very stressful for Scooby, but he settled into his foster home very quickly. He plays well with the resident X-Large dog in his foster home,  Scooby LOVES toys and to play or wrestle, and as soon as he is done playing, he wants to cuddle right up next to you on the couch. And he is an expert Dane-style lap-sitter. Scooby would do best with kids over 10 years old as he is very playful and very large and doesn't always understand his size.  A familiarity with Great Danes is a plus, but not a necessity. Scooby needs consistent training to teach him to walk nicely on a leash and a basic obedience class will be required of his adopters.  Scooby has so much love to give and can't wait to find his forever family! No apartments and no cats, please. Scooby is microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken, crate-trained and neutered.  This dog's family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you are interested in adopting this dog, fill out an Online Application today!  Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.   Thank you for considering a rescue pet from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation!

If you are interested in adopting one of our pets, please submit an adoption application at https://www.arf-il.org/adopt/application/  Adoption appointments are scheduled based on the order of applications received, so submit your application early!

Story
Mando is a big ol’ cuddle bug! He LOVES lovin’s. He loves people, kids, walks, toys, cuddles, and kisses. Mando was found at a home as a 5 month old puppy on a chain with no food or water. The owner was approached and eventually surrendered him. This poor boy is now 10 months old and has lived in a shelter his entire life. Mando would thrive in a home and deserves one of his very own. He is wonderful with other dogs and is untested with cats. Mando is a 10 month old male Dane mix who is approximately 60 lbs. He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Mando is a big boy and still puppy playful, so he may be too much for small children. Fence required. This furbaby is located at Animal Harbor in southern middle TN. You can apply at www.animalharbor.org. If approved, we will facilitate a virtual meet and greet and answer any questions you may have. We partner with the awesome transport service company Rescue Riders to safely and professionally move our animals to their loving new homes!
