Story
Hi. I'm Wicket. My name means "small gate or door. Foster mom says that means I get to open my own doors and create my own opportunities for success. That sounds like a big deal for a guy like me who was found wandering the streets of San Antonio as a stray. Luckily for me, the nice rescue lady found me in the shelter on death row and knew I was looking for my big opportunity. She sprang me from there and took me to live with my foster siblings at her home. My life has been looking up ever since. I am a 12 pound, approximately 4 year old, male, shitsu ( possibly mixed). I am extremely friendly and love all people and other dogs. Not sure about cats. I am good on a leash and like to go on car rides and snuggle with my people. I am very playful and especially love squeaky toys and balls. I would do best in a home with an active family. I prefer to be in the house but will spend time outside if others are out there. I am crate trained and am still working on potty training with a doggy door. As you can see, I am an all around good fellow looking for his golden opportunity in life. If you are that opportunity, have your peeps call my peeps and let's get this love affair started. $350 local $600 out of state (includes transport & fuel)

Story
Fluffy’s person surrendered him to our center saying they didn’t want to take care of him anymore. He’s a senior dog and needs extra care and really depended on his person to be there for him. Now, he’s completely heartbroken. Fluffy has a collapsed trachea, a grade 5 heart murmur, and an ulcer affecting his eye. His care can be managed, but he needs a special person who will see him through. He is very sweet and friendly. He can be around other dogs, ideally other seniors, or gentle canines that understand he hasn’t got a lot of desire to play.

Story
Chloe is as sweet as can be and absolutely loves people! At around 10 lbs, she’s the perfect little companion. However, Chloe does have some difficulty getting along with other animals, which is why her former family made the decision to surrender her. Chloe would thrive in a home where she can be the only animal. If you’re planning on having just one dog, Chloe is definitely worth meeting! She loves belly rubs, being cradled in a lap, and taking leisurely strolls.

Story
Introducing BOGIE, a Bichon Frise & Shih Tzu cross breed who is just over a year old, weighing approximately 12 pounds. Bogie is a very sweet boy that was rescued from a puppy-mill breeder when he was “too old” to sell. While in foster care these past few months, Bogie has learned what love and kindness is and now seeks it out from his foster mom. Bogie does not have a mean bone in his body and really craves a gentle touch/pet because he finally feels safe. Bogie now follows his foster mom around, especially when outside in the yard, and feels safe enough to come when called. He has even started playing and having fun, doing the “zoomies” in the yard, and truly looking so happy. This past month Bogie has decided it's pretty comfy to lay on his foster mom’s stomach while she watches T.V.. His recovery from his horrible first year of life has been remarkable and we are so happy for him. Because Bogie can be skittish, he requires a calm household, securely fenced yard and another friendly dog in the home who will continue to mentor Bogie’s rehabilitation. He is approved for adult households. Bogie enjoys the companionship of other dogs but more importantly he gets his confidence from them, learning more typical dog behavior. Bogie has good home manners and is housebroken. He is such a great little dog whose future is so bright! This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, provided vaccines, been dewormed, tested for diseases, neutered, and microchipped. Our online application is not functioning currently; therefore ADOPTION APPLICATIONS are available upon request from acaringplace@comcast.net.   We apologize for the inconvenience. A Caring Place - All Breed Dog Rescue adopts throughout the Greater Chicagoland Area.

Story
BONDED PAIR. This is a bonded pair so we are only adopting them together.      These handsome boys are FRANKIE and FUDDIE, 4 year old, Shih Tzu/Maltese mixes who would enjoy a more mellow household. Frankie, the larger of the two dogs, weighs 15 pounds, and Fuddie weighs 10 ½ pounds. Fuddie lost his eye to an injury and infection years ago. Frankie and Fuddie have a soft, non-shedding type coat that will require grooming every 12 weeks or so, along with bi-weekly brushing. Frankie loves to play with the other dogs in his foster home as well as Fuddie; on the other hand, Fuddie is more shy and only plays with Frankie but he seeks out his foster mom for attention and cuddling.      Frankie and Fuddie’s senior owner took ill and could no longer care for the boys so he asked our rescue for help. They have been living in a foster home with several other dogs and seem to be wonderful little dogs who are easy to love. They are housebroken and have good house manners.          Frankie and Fuddie would do best with a fenced yard for potty breaks, and an adopter who would enjoy taking them on daily walks for exercise. These dogs have been examined by licensed veterinarians, been provided vaccines, been dewormed, tested for diseases, neutered, and microchipped.

Alumni Super Sweet Senior, Mickey Seeking A Forever Home! Poor Mickey! Through no fault of his own he has had at least 4 homes! We found him in 2016 at a community free access shelter at the height of the canine flu! Not only was that a strike against bim but he had broken toes and was next in line to the euth room. We got him our in the nick of time. We covered his medical care. He improved, and healed and landed a lovely new Mom. Sadly Coved him and his mom passed. The family sent Mickey to live with a family friend that adored him. Sadly, his new Mom fell ill and needed to relinquish him to us. No Micky is on the hunt for a forever family that won't let him down. Mickey is a very gentle boy that loves everyone. He is pretty quiet, happy to take long naps in between wandering around the yard, sitting on a deck or taking a walk. He is also happy to nap with you and the family cat! He is quiet and always hoping yummy food might drop his way. He gets along with everyone. He was pee pad trained which might be helpful. We estimate he is 14ish.. He is a healthy fella although has had some allergy issues in the past and recovered IVDD. Mickey is fully vetted, He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and is heartworm negative, His adoption donation is $450.00. He is on the hunt for his own completely committed family, Little Dogs can live to be 25 years old so he wants to be sure al for better or for worse! We adopt in the local Chicago metro area.
