Story
Carmen is a very sweet and friendly, five-year-old, 55-pound female terrier-mix with a cropped tail looking for a loving guardian. Carmen is full of nub wiggles and kisses for everyone she meets. She would be best in home without other pets but would love to snuggle with you! Carmen would do best in her own back yard hangin' with her peeps. She knows the command sit and takes treats very gently from your fingers. Carmen is crate-trained and appears to be housebroken. She was rescued by Lucky Dog Rescue from a Southern Illinois shelter and brought to Chicago to find a loving. To meet and possibly adopt Carmen, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net for an adoption application. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog Rescue.

Story
Unfortunately Happy does not look happy in her pictures! But in person, she is a happy dog and loves people. She's good with most other friendly dogs and adores going out for walks. She also is happy to show you that she knows how to sit and give paw on command. She is a little too interested in small animals, so no kitties or rabbits for siblings. We put a bell on her collar when she goes out into the yard to warn any little critters. She's a very affectionate girl looking for her own family. Please email Melia at melia88@comcast.net for an adoption application. Her adoption fee is $200.

Story
This is Bruno, he is just under two years. I got him from a family I believe at 6 months. I don’t know his breed I can only guess. I asked the vet for a DNA test to find his breed and they said they don’t do that. His birthday is March 30th. He is a very special dog and it pains me to give him up. I am relocating and I can’t find a place that accepts dogs. By the looks of it we will both be homeless, come April 1st. I rather he go to a good home than the both of us on the street. Landlords are being so strict these days. I had 2 cats and life was perfect until it wasn’t. Bruno loves to play and cuddle, he will follow you to the end of the earth. I’m really loosing my best friend, I’m crying writing this post. He is house trained, knows English and Spanish commands like sit. Down. Paw. He loves long walks, toys treats etc.. great with kids he just wants love and attention. He has a lot of love to give. Love that I will miss dearly. Text me for a faster response (xxx) xxx-xxxx

Story
!! I'M CURRENTLY IN THE SHELTER !! !! I'M IN NEED OF A FOSTER HOME !!Hey pal, wanna build a tree fort? Wanna go swimming in the swimming hole? How about riding our bikes at top speed? If you long for some old-fashioned fun with your best pal, Zuko might be just the guy to join you! He's an exuberant, athletic, super friendly 3 year old old lab/bully breed/mutt who came to CCR from a shelter in Arkansas where he had been found stray. Zuko thinks everything is the most fun - and when Zuko is around, everything IS the most fun! He'd love an active home where he could get lots of playtime, exercise, and attention. This guy is eager to soak up all the adventure and love you have to offer. He'll do well with other rowdy dogs who don't mind his goofball antics. Because Zuko is still a teenager, his new family should plan to give him nice long walks, lots of things to do and think about, and then lots of snuggles at nighttime when he's finally tuckered out! Zuko will do well with hearty kids who aren't scared by his big dumb energy! He may even adapt to a confident cat with a nice slow intro.Zuko can easily be startled by people that come up and surprise him, so he does require some special training! Please reach out to us with questions if you are interested in fostering him!To meet Zuko, please submit an application at chicagocaninerescue.org!

Story
!! I'M CURRENTLY IN THE SHELTER !! !! I'M IN NEED OF A FOSTER HOME !!Just like the classic ice cream flavor, Rocky Road is sweet as can be! He is a young beefy pitbull who wants nothing more than to wiggle up to you and snuggle, he just LOVES people. His favorite games to play are fetch and tug, he could play all day. Rocky Road came to us from Chicago Animal Care and Control as an owner surrender due to no fault of his own. This poor kiddo appeared to have a bad case of fleas which was causing some spotty hair loss, but it is growing back so well and he has been a champ through the entire process! Unfortunately Rocky Road is back at CCR after an adoption didn't work out, we discovered he can be dog reactive on leash if he is in a high stress area (like near dog parks!) so he will need to go with someone who knows his quirks and how to properly introduce dogs! He is SUCH a great boy and deserves another chance with a dog-savvy human!Rocky's annual care has been generously donated by his guardian Angel - David S.

These pups are in Harwood Heights, Illinois too!
