Story
Meet Poppy! Poppy is a 6yr old, Terrier mix, spayed female and up to date on vaccines/preventatives. She is house trained, kennel trained, and vehicle trained as well. Poppy is a medium energy dog; feisty and likes to socialize BUT she's a little crusty on the outside and super gooey on the inside. She loves her people and her friends; however, you'll need to earn her trust. Poppy can be energetic, plays casually and enjoys sustained games of chase with her friends, on her terms (fun police.) She can get cranky if play becomes too vigorous and she gets pounced on too much/hard. Poppy has a little bit of arthritis, and it can be painful, so she will gladly retreat to the door to let you know she is done with playtime. She is more than willing to go inside, follow you around or curl up, chill, and get her belly rubbed. Being small but mighty, Poppy occasionally has bouts of barking at what she sees moving in the distance and will go zooming up and down the fence line in arousal of anyone/thing approaching; however, she will calm down on her own with minimal intervention from her person. When greeting you, Poppy displays the typical wiggle body and wildly wagging tail. Have you seen how long her tail is?! It waves like a banner over her back and is simply adorable! She may initially hop up to put her feet on you, letting you know she's happy and wants to interact with you, she loves attention and will display a little eagerness to get more loves... so saying her name as she's being petted, and the name of the other dog(s) being petted keeps her content. Noteworthy Behaviors: Poppy displays barrier reactivity with new people/surroundings as a way to express her anxiety in the situation. She will need a person or family, (with older children), who will understand and take their time with her. Once you win her over, she is gold! She is quirky about having her collar touched so she will whine, cower down, and roll to her side. She will display mouthy behavior as you attempt to put a leash on her, but she genuinely wants to go out so don't give up! She will pop right up and head to the door after being leashed!! Key points to consider when adopting Poppy: she is sugar and spice with bursts of energy so great with a laid back and an active family. Honorable mention: Poppy does have a housemate, Sully, who is also up for adoption. If you're looking for two friends, then they are your duo! They would have an easier transition into a new home together but they are not bonded. $200 Local adoption fee (in Texas) $400 Out of State Fee (includes transport to your area) $50 Fuel temporary fuel surcharge

Story
JR is located in TEXAS. There are not enough homes for all the unwanted dogs down there, so he is willing to relocate for a good, loving, forever home. We think that JR is a Dachshund/Rat terrier mix. He is around 1 year of age and weighs 17 pounds. JR is a good boy, he is very sweet, loving, and affectionate to his human. He loves to cuddle and get pets. JR should either be an only dog or paired with a female. He will play with other dogs but does best with females. He does not do well with unaltered males. JR is crate-trained. He sleeps in a crate at night and is crated when his foster has to leave the house. JR is not completely house-trained and he will wear a male wrap - although he sometimes gets it off - normally with the help of one of the other dogs. He is still young and needs general obedience training. He is trainable, learns quickly, and is well-behaved in the house. JR must be in the house as a loved member of the family. He must be walked on a leash and would like a secure, fenced yard to run and play. JR is healthy. He is neutered, tattooed, fully vaccinated (DAPPvL2, Bordatella, rabies), and microchipped. He is negative for heartworms and receives monthly heartworm and flea prevention. JR's out-of-state adoption fee includes the cost of ground transport to the southeast side of Chicago. He is located in Texas and cannot be transported until after he is adopted. Please send an email to 2manydogstx@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting this adorable little guy.

Story
Meet Juju (Juniper)! She is a sweet mixed breed lady who came to us from Animal Rescue Corps where she was rescued from a dog hoarding situation. Despite her past, she is very friendly and well-adjusted and even has done spectacular with her potty training. Her favorite thing to do is cuddle and sleep, especially with her human foster brother. She came to us with a horrible skin infection and missing a lot of hair, but slowly her skin is cleared up and her hair is slowly growing in. She does have one eye that doesn't produce enough tears (dry-eye) and she will need eye medication for life in that eye in the form of prescription drops and OTC lubricating gel. Very easy to manage. Juju was spayed, had a dental with extractions, and also had some mammary masses removed. The masses were carcinoma, but they were completely removed with clear margins and a low chance of recurrence. We would like to see her adopted with Marley who is another dog she came with from the same hoarding situation. We think they would be able to be separated- they aren't bonded to the point where they cannot survive without each other- but they really do spend all their time together and just love each other. They both like to climb like little mountain goats- so their new home should be one that allows dogs on furniture. Juju's adoption donation of $300 (or $500 for the pair) helps cover the cost of her medical care. Application, reference checks, and home visit required. Adopters must live 1.5 hours driving distance from Romeoville, IL. For more information on adopting, please email us at info@perfectpooches.org. If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at www.perfectpooches.org under the Adoption Process tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested (age appropriate), fecal tested and/or dewormed, and microchipped.
