Story
If you’re looking for the perfect velcro dog.. look no further! Meet George!  He is a 15 lb 2 year old Shih Tzu mix boy. His favorite pasttime is following his foster family everywhere they go! Be it lounging on the couch or running around outside, George is there. He’s happy as long as you’re happy! Hes a big bundle of love, cuddles and kisses. He does great with kids but they should be gentle, of course (5 and older please). George doesn’t mind sharing a home with cats or another dog that minds their own business. He is small but mighty, and does want to be the alpha of the group. The adoption fee of $400.00 will include spay/neuter, microchip, age appropriate/required vaccinations, treatment for heartworm and any other necessary medical treatment to assure a healthy new pup for your family. Although we do the best to describe breed, since our pups all come from shelters we can make no guarantee. We can tell you that they are 100% RESCUED! If you are interested in adopting/meeting , please visit our website at www.starfishanimalrescue.com or you may complete the online adoption application on our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/starfishanimalrescue/app/134425496630143/?ref=page_internal Once you complete and submit your dog adoption application we will set up an appointment to meet this pup! *please note that we are a foster home based rescue and we do home visits as part of the adoption process - we are unable to adopt to families who live outside of the Chicago and surrounding suburbs. Thank you for your understanding.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 24, 2024, 9:21 am

Story
Lagos is a very loving 9-year-old male Shih Tzu/Maltese mix looking for a forever home.He does have a grade 2 heart murmur, and an enlarged heart. He is going to the vet soon to have cardiac ultrasound to check on his heart. We will be sure to update his bio as we learn more on his condition. As long as his heart is strong enough, he will be getting a much-needed dental and neuter done!After losing his family, Lagos found himself in need of a new start. He is a very sweet boy. He loves meeting people and getting lots of attention. Lagos would be happiest in a home where his people can spend lots of time with him, as he does have some separation anxiety. Lagos has met small dogs through the fence at the shelter and has done well. He hasn't met large dogs or cats yet.

Story
Emily is looking for a great fur-ever home! She is a 10 pound, female shih-tzu born on 12/05/21. Emily was released by a breeder who decided they did not need her anymore and has never been bred. She has lived in a cage her entire life, so she is not house or leash trained. Because Emily is very skittish and fearful, she will do best in a quiet home with a patient, experienced adopter (with no young children) willing to work with her and let her get comfortable at her own pace. She will need a fenced yard with another calm, socialized dog to teach her the ropes. She is starting to show her adventurous side by exploring her foster home, enjoying looking out the window, and being outside. Emily will be spayed at one of our approved vet clinics in the Chicago area prior to adoption. She is up to date on shots, micro-chipped, and heart-worm & fecal tested negative. We require an application, phone interview, virtual house check, and meet and greet with your entire family. Send us an email at petprofilerescue@gmail.com for a for an adoption application or apply online at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1S5v9x1oGSYLBSfheZJ_zSvkIHoT3Fe_xnsq5V75IX9w/edit?fbclid=IwAR0rU1zQezgZhhC_01_JpMFhujOq40cu8Xl4xKdiZ0b1L-3Pwm1Et-XI3K4 If you have already submitted an application to us, send us an email, expressing your interest in this dog.
