Story
To help us make a great fit for you, and any of our dogs as well, please include information about yourself(Home, family, yard/fence, work hours, other pets...) and/or use our application at sparrowdogs.com. COURTESY POST---This handsome boy is NOT with our rescue, he is with his family right now and we are helping them to find a wonderful home for Cooper. You can look at his pictures and see that Cooper is a very much loved family member. He has had a wonderful life with his people, and his other dog pal. And he really is an awesome guy, full of life and exuberance. But, that occasional over the top personality is a little too much for a family that just welcomed a newborn. So, no judgement there, they are just trying to make the best decisions for their baby as well as Cooper. Cooper is a 5 year old Pitbull mix. The family had initially adopted him a few years ago from a rescue, he had been left tied to a tree at some point in his life and was also heartworm positive. He has been treated for the heartworms and he is a healthy, robust and fully vetted boy. Cooper has lived with his other dog buddy and does well. Occasionally they play a little too rough(of course!) when they get a bit excited. He also lives with a cat that he wants to play with, however, the cat is not that interested in playing with Cooper, lol. Cooper's family says that he can be a little bit of an energy overload at times, he gets so exited meeting new people and dogs, gets excited about being outside and will jump on people and even has a big waggy tail that can hurt a little bit on the receiving end, lol. He is on some calming meds at this point, but perhaps could wean off of them in a small child free and also an active home to burn off some of that energy. Cooper's family has been working with a trainer and he is doing well. HE knows, sit, lay, shake and is doing well with place training on a mat, as well as a slip lead for a calming control device. When Cooper is not enjoying all the excitement of his life he is also a very laid back guy. If you are relaxing, well, he is right there with you. Cooper is a professional snuggler and loves to be by your side, keeping your feet warm in bed, or cozied up for some Netflix! Cooper will most likely do better in a rural situation where he does not have as many distractions such as other dogs, people cars and such to get him overly excited. Cooper is an extra special guy that deserves all the best. His family is hoping to find an active, loving home, older kids would be best. He lives with another male dog now, but really does well with older female dogs. If you have an awesome home for an awesome dog, please email Kristine at joysparrows@gmail.com.

Story
Meet Draco! Draco is a sweet boy who was surrendered due to his owner moving into an apartment. He is a good dog, energetic and loves to hang out in the yard and enjoy the sunshine! Draco is 3 years old. He has lived with other dogs, cats and kids. Would do better in a home without cats/small animals (per previous owner). He does know some basic commands and is housetrained. Would do better with female dogs (reportedly) but doesn't seem to have an issue with any other dogs here so far. Draco was diagnosed as a pup with a grade 2-3 heart murmur. We have not done any follow up diagnostics but he is heartworm negative. Draco has no cardiac symptoms at all and should not need medications or additional follow up care to our knowledge. Draco's adoption fee is WAIVED!!! due to his length of stay and includes his neuter, microchip, vaccinations and negative heartworm test. Please call 630-553-9256 or email animalcontrol@kendallcountyil.gov for more information or if you are interested in adopting.

Story
Bellamy is very loyal and loves to give kisses. He would be better with a single female. Weve had him since he was a baby but after turning 8 he has lost patience with children which we have two of. He doesn’t bite but he snaps and we want to combat that. He loves walks, cuddles with his person, and lots of love and attention. He just is very protective and needs to be supervised. He needs someone that is just his person. He is good with the leash. He has no accidents. He is a great love bug but we’re too stimulating for him.
