Story
*Leonardo is part of our Take Time to Fall in Love Promotion. See our Adoption Procedures page for more details.* A humane investigation is how I came to Save-A-Pet. My home neglected me so I was a little rough around the edges at first. Here I’m a happy big boy that loves having fun with toys in a play yard. The amazing Canine Care staff is saying that I’m quite a playful goofball, always ready to climb into people’s lap for some loving. Oh and they also say that I have one of the best smiles around here!

CJ is full of life and love. He is a sweet, affectionate young dog who gets along well with other dogs and everyone he meets. He is an ACTIVE guy that will need a home willing to give him lots of exercise and work with him on discipline and manners. He doesn't do anything 'bad', but boy oh boy, is he busy!

Story
I adopted Henry December 15, 2023. He was found on the south side of Chicago. He had no collar, no microchip. The police called me and asked if I could help with him. He was extremely malnourished, and was going to be euthanized. He only weighed 47 pounds when they brought him to me. He currently weighs about 73 lbs. He is extremely loving with all people,. and other dogs, and young puppies. I breed labradors and labradoodles, and he plays with my puppies all the tiime. My goal was to get him healthy again, and then re home him. I did a complete DNA test on him, and he is a very healthy dog, clear of all genetic conditions. I am guessing he is about 4/5 years old. He is an extremely intelligent dog. I'm looking for a loving home for Henry.
