Story
ADOPT SHELDON 3.5 year old Dachshund /Yorkie mix Best as an only dog Teenagers/adults only Sheldon, Sheldon, Sheldon what can I say about this little guy? To know him is to love him. Unfortunately, we don't have much information about his past. He is an owner surrender. He was not up to date on his vaccinations or heartworm prevention. He was not neutered and he had a horrible flea infestation that had not been treated leaving him with large bald spots on his back. To say he must have been miserable is probably an understatement. That has all been taken care of. You can no longer see the bald spots and he's feeling so much better. Sheldon is a three and a half year old, 12 pound doxie yorkie mix with a big attitude. He's going to need someone very special that will love him for his good qualities and deal with his less desirable traits. Sheldon is currently living with two retired adults and another dog in a small house. He enjoys sitting in your lap while you gently rub his ears. It's adorable how he gets excited at meal time and you hear his little feet run ahead to where he eats. If the weather is nice, he enjoys sniffing around the yard. Once he discovered the squirrels he made it his mission to try to catch one. He loves playing with his foster brother despite the significant size difference. On the down side, he doesn't want to share his foster mom. He will growl and even snap at his foster brother if he comes near during cuddle time. His foster dad doesn't fair any better and can't even move about the house without being barked at when mom's around. He does not do well with excitement either. It's another cause for barking. He doesn't want to be bothered if he's laying in his bed, especially if he's got a toy or bone in there. He will growl and if you ignore the warning you probably will get nipped. I would not trust him around kids under the age of maybe fourteen. All that being said, he still deserves a home of his own. In a different situation he could really be a great companion. Being an only dog would eliminate a lot of the problems and barking. His barking wouldn't resonate as much in a larger home. He can always be put in another room when you have company, at least till he calms down. If you think you might be interested in adopting Sheldon, please take the time to fill out an application. Then we can have a real conversation. He's got a lot of years left and we want them to be happy. Sheldon’s adoption fee is $450. Sheldon is neutered, vaccinated with rabies, distemper/parvo, bordetella, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm negative & on heartworm & flea/tick prevention. He is fostered in the south suburbs of Chicago. Interested? Please visit www.heathersfosterdogs.org & click on Adoption Application to submit your application online. We are located in the south suburbs of Chicago & serve that general area, NW Indiana, & southern Wisconsin. We do not ship dogs.

Story
Due to the recent fire at our shelter, all of our animals are in foster homes. All animals are still available for adoption, please submit an application online so you can meet your new best friend!Cookie came to us in pretty bad shape. She had an awful skin infection, giant mass, and luxating patellas. Cookie has had a rough time at such a young age! After multiple surgeries and plenty of TLC by her lovely foster mama, she's now ready for a home! Cookie can be slow to meet new people, so she will need a quiet home with no children.

Story
We took ownership over Gus Gus when he was 6 months old July of 2023 after meeting him at a July 4th party and his owners were unkind, hadn’t named him or taken him to a vet yet. We were his 4th home and had a 3yr old larger rescue that we thought could be a great playmate/protector. We named him, got him nuetered and on a wellness plan and started working on socialization/training. He is very loyal but continues to try to be the aggressor with our larger breed rescue and he is still very un-trusting of any new visitors of our home. We really don’t want to release him to a shelter and truly care for him/want him to find a forever home.

Story
Meet Popeye the little sailor man!  A Yorkie/Chihuahua mix, this little 7lb, 7-month-old is full of life and looking for his furever home.  Popeye would do best in a home where he's the only dog and a  fenced in yard would be ideal for him!   He's fairly high energy, so a playful and active household will be best. That said, this little muscle man also just loves being cuddled and sitting in his human's lap.   He's potty trained and is just looking to be loved.    A sweetie at heart, this little love bug just wants a human he can call his own.    If you are interested in adopting/meeting , please complete our online adoption application that you can find here: https://www.starfishanimalrescue.com/adopt/dog-adoption-application  . Your application will be reviewed by our team and if it is a good fit, we will send to the foster family to set up a meet! The adoption fee of $450 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. IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Although we do our best to describe breed, since our pups all come from shelters we can not and will not make any guarantee on breed or size. We can tell you that they are 100% RESCUED! And that is the BEST breed! *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.March 2, 2024, 4:08 pm
