Frita is a wonderful girl. She was used for breeding before being relinquished to a kill shelter. Now she is in a loving home. Frita is about 3 years old. She is very affectionate and loves attention from the humans in her foster home. Frita's playful side is starting to come out. She throws a ball in the air and has the zoomies!

Story
We are searching for a knight in shining armor (or a warrior princess) to rescue this particular Duke.We estimate that Duke John is about 11 years old and 112 pounds of sheer handsome beauty, very loving, and majestic as all get out. He loves to cuddle, would be happiest getting non-stop petting, knows a whole bunch of commands, is housebroken, and stays off the furniture unless invited. A gentle giant, he loves all people (including children) and gets along well with other dogs. DNA tests indicate he is a bloodhound/lab/Catahoula mix. Despite his age, he's got serious power and will need a strong human to handle the other end of the leash in the event an Amazon truck should come along. Duke John loves his routine and it includes non-negotiable short nightly walks - one of his very favorite things in life.This guy is a survivor: having adapted to more relaxed living conditions due to his congenital heart condition and takes numerous medications each day. His health requires a human who can keep him on a strict food and med schedule, let him out frequently, and who will bring him to vet appointments. He is not neutered: due to his age and heart issues, he cannot undergo anesthesia.Anyone interested in Duke John should speak first to our medical staff so we can be certain his health needs will be met. He is searching for an active and loving home where he can live his best life. He is one heckuva special dog.Interested in adopting this dog? Visit our website (http://www.SecondCityCanineRescue.org) to fill out an application and to find out where this dog may be shown this weekend.We love our dogs. We want happy lives for all of them and are looking for the home that provides the best fit for each dog's individual needs. Please understand that there may be multiple families interested in this dog. Also, please know that the breed mix listed is simply a guess. In most cases, we don't know their background. We encourage you to base your decision on individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on our guess.Please understand, we only adopt our animals out near the Chicagoland area. Questions? Email us at adoptions@sccrescue.org. Hope to see you become part of the SCCR family!

MARCO Foster to Adopt FAST FACTS Male, Great Dane mix, 3 1/2 Years-Old, 72-PoundsFriendly, Loving, Playful, Sweet, Big snuggle bug!Moderately ActivePeople FriendlyKids over 8Dog FriendlyNo CatsPotty TrainedCrate Trained  Greetings from Marco, and I’d like to be your canine best friend (CBF). A little about my background. I was surrendered to an overcrowded animal control facility in emaciated condition. Once I’d gained enough weight to be deemed healthy for transport, I was sent to CARE to find my forever home. The staff and volunteers tell me I’m a sweetheart of a dog, a Gentle Giant who doesn’t yet understand how much space he occupies. For example, as I gaze up into their eyes, tail wagging, waiting for a pet or hug, I’m likely to be sitting on—not at—their feet. I also bump into walls and try to fit into places that are too small for me. So yes, I’m still a clumsy, goofy puppy, but the word that best describes me is loving. I adore being around people and consider everyone I meet to be my pal. I show affection by rubbing against their legs and, whenever possible, cuddling with them on a couch and giving lots of kisses.  Here are some other things I’d like to share. I’m very smart and treat-motivated and have already learned sit, down, come, look and touch. I’m not particularly interested in toys, although I do enjoy a peanut butter-filled Kong. I like playing with other pooches, but they should be medium- or large sized, as I’m a bit too much for the little ones. I’m still learning to walk politely and not pull, so I’ll need your help working on my leash manners. Finally, I’m happy to report I keep my kennel clean, doing my business outdoors, and tolerate my kennel, though my preference is to be with/near a human at all times. I hope my bio has you thinking I might just be the CBF you’ve been looking for. If so, please fill out an adoption application ASAP and come and meet me. While I can’t promise I won’t put your feet to sleep when on sit on them, I can absolutely guarantee you my unconditional love! I have been neutered and microchipped and have had a full veterinary checkup and vaccines. My adoption fee is $325. For more information or if you would like to meet me, please fill out an adoption survey at carenorthshore.org/dog-adoption-survey Love and licks, MarcoFebruary 22, 2024, 12:17 am
