Story
Ebony is living in a foster home. Please submit an application from our website and/or email dogs@heartlandanimalshelter.org to learn if you are a match! Scroll through her pictures to see her cute video content! Beautiful Ebony and her sister Brandi, who was already adopted, came to us from Kentucky. They were surrendered to a county shelter down there after their owner suddenly died. Ebony is the more outgoing of the girls-- she is active, playful, and very smart! She is oh so sweet. She was definitely raised right. Of course, it is hard for them having to adjust to this new way of life and an adopter will need to have patience and understanding for a dog whose whole life has been turned upside down. One of our favorite things about Ebony is her fetch skills! She is an amazing ball-catcher! Please email us to arrange to meet Ebony and fall in love with her! Ebony's adoption fee is $250. This animal will be spayed/neutered at a future date to be determined, is up to date on core vaccines, and Heartworm negative.

Story
Julie is living in a foster home. Please submit an application from our website and/or email dogs@heartlandanimalshelter.org to learn if you are a match! Scroll through her pictures to see her cute video content! Julie came to us from a sanctuary in southern Texas where she had been living for over a year. Her rescuers found her and her siblings living under a pile of rocks on a ranch in the harsh Texas heat. Having grown up in a very rural area with few people around, Julie has needed time to warm up to her new urban surroundings and more noise and activity! Luckily, her canine foster siblings have been there to help her through, and her human fosters are pretty amazing, too! Read on to see what they have to say about sweet Julie: Julie is such a sweetheart! When you're her person, she will shower you with love, cuddles, and company without being clingy. Julie comes from a very quiet, rural area and is still acclimating to the environment and routines of life in Chicagoland. Being the sensitive soul she is, she's a bit uncertain of the newness of it all; as a result, she's nervous around new people and new sights. But once Julie relaxes, she is a cuddly, curious, and even goofy gal. Her foster family jumped at the chance to foster her because they adopted her littermate over the summer and have seen how special these pups are when they blossom. (There are also several other littermates who have been adopted in the area and are connected!) Julie's similarities to her siblings are very striking, and whoever adopts her will be lucky! Julie is an excellent companion to the other two pups in her foster home--one being her littermate and the other being a smaller (30 lb), older, mellow mutt. While she likes other dogs and gains some confidence from their company, she seems most attached to her person/people. She is an excellent snuggler overnight, sleeping by her person's side, and will curl up next to her humans on the couch while they read or watch TV, probably resting her head on a lap as she drifts off to sleep. Julie is very food motivated, which comes in handy with building her trust and comfort in new experiences. She naps much of the day and seems to have medium-low energy for her age. Julie's adoption fee is $250. This animal is spayed, up to date on core vaccines, and Heartworm negative.

Story
I adopted Kam one week after his first birthday in 2016. He is such an energetic and playful dog that he sometimes gets mistaken for a puppy. He loves to snuggle up near heaters, pillows and blankets. He loves people and other dogs but doesn’t do well with cats. Unfortunately, my career and my husband’s career doesn’t allow for the time Kam needs to release his energy and we do not have a yard. He would do best with a home where he isn’t crated more than 8 hours a day and preferably a yard. This is a very hard decision to make but this is what’s best for Kam.

Story
Harlequin, just like in a romance novel, is the new love of your life.  If you desire a pup who will look at you like you are her whole world, who wants nothing more than to snuggle next to you on the couch on in a chair and is eager to please, then Harlequin is your girl. She is adorable with silky short hair, cute little white toes and some white on her chest. She lived in a home until 4 months of age then the litter was turned into a shelter and pulled by FOR quickly.  She has been living in her foster home with an older dog, young puppy and two elderly cats and is thriving.  She is potty trained and sleeps in her kennel at night.  She is spayed, up to date on vaccines and heartworm prevention. If you would like to meet this sweet girl and make her part of your family, please complete an application at https://forrescue.net/dog-application/ . She is located in North Alabama with transport available to your area. Friends of Rescue requires a virtual home visit and vet reference prior to all adoptions.

Meet Kimber. He was taken in with his brother and buddy Ruger. He is a 3 1/2-4 yr old, 70-75 lb sweetheart lab mix. Kimber is just a big love bug. Tends to be lower energy. He’s a bit on the shy/timid side compared to his brother. He enjoys plenty of affection, chasing and talking to birds, sunbathing, chewing bones, playing with doggy siblings, taking walks, or lounging on the couch. Kimber would enjoy a nice yard or land with doggy friends, plenty of affection, and maybe a couch or comfy bed to call it a day on. In his foster home he has become accustomed to an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Kimber is vetted, neutered, microchipped, house trained, kennel trained, walks on a leash, and knows basic commands.
