Story
I'm the life of the paw-ty, the Queen of zoomies, and the ruler of hearts - they call me Queen, and for good reason! I'm a bundle of energy, an expert snuggler, a professional entertainer. I cannot wait to meet my forever person, and trust me, the wait has been longer than a dog's nap! It's not that I'm picky, I just like to take my time getting to know my humans. If I bark, it's just my way of saying, "Hey, I'm feeling a bit shy here!" Now, let's talk about my kingdom - the yard! It's officially mine, or so everyone says. Watch me zoom around like there's no tomorrow, soaking in the thrill of freedom. And when you step into my royal territory, be prepared for the royal treatment. I'll come over, give your feet and legs a good sniff, and if you've got a toy, we're already on the fast track to becoming besties. I've got this cool game called "touch." You put your hand out, say the magic word, and I'll nudge it with my nose. But here's the deal: I expect a treat, preferably a soft cookie or some cheese. I mean, a Queen deserves her rewards, right? So, how about it? Come join me in my yard, witness the epic zoomies, and let's become the dynamic duo everyone talks about. I might be a bit bossy with other dogs (I mean they're fine, I just don't want to live with them full-time), so a single-pet home would be my ideal kingdom (and I even have experience with that). Be my friend, and I promise to be the best friend you've ever had!

American Pit Bull Terrier

Female, 5 yrs 1 mo
Riverwoods, IL
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Not good with dogs, Not good with cats, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Allie has been reading up on self-help books and taking lots of notes. She's thinking this year she should decorate her kennel with lots of those "Live, Laugh, Love" and "Failure is success in progress!" quotes. It just doesn't feel the same in a kennel versus a home. Still, we think she deserves an award for "Most Improved" this year! Allie has been putting in the work during her time with us and has made huge progress in her training. She is currently working on relaxing around new people and in new situations. She would LOVE a home to show off her skills in! Allie's ideal home would have grown up (or mostly grown up) humans and minimal visitors. She comes with support from both OOTS and Full Circle Dog training. After over 500 days of waiting (and learning!) Allie is SO ready to make 2024 the year she finds a home.

Baby Huey

American Pit Bull Terrier Labrador Retriever

Male, 6 yrs 10 mos
Vernon Hills, IL
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Huey is an extremely handsome pit bull/lab mix. He was found in a hoarding situation with 26 other animals. He came to the shelter extremely thin and scared. He was so shy and shut down that he wouldn't come out of his run for months. He needs love, patience, and a quiet home that will allow him to slowly build trust. He was pretty broken when he came to us and it took him a long time to come out of his shell. He is scared of new people and new situations so he needs someone that will take their time getting to know him, and give him the space he needs to get comfortable and build trust. He is so loving once he trusts you! If you think you have the love and patience Huey needs to be a happy pup, email us at bombshellbullies@hotmail.com.
