|Rescue Me ID: 16-12-02-00170Lucy (female)|
Hi! My name is Lucy. I am 2.5 years old. My Mom and Dad bought me as a puppy but then they had a baby of their own and I was kind of neglected, left alone in the basement for a very long time. I did not get the attention and care I needed. Because I was neglected and not given any training or socialization as a puppy, I snapped at a couple of people (we later found out that poor Lucy had a bladder infection during this time and that is probably why she snapped!). Anyhow, instead of working with me OR trying to find another family for her ---my Mom and Dad decided they would put me down. But then a nice lady and her friend came to the rescue hours before my euthanasia was scheduled and they managed to talk my Mom and Dad out of putting me down. I then spent about a month at the Chicago ASPCA and then a southern IL rescue/shelter came to get me so that I wouldn't get put down there either. Now I am sitting in a shelter kennel run all day and night waiting for my perfect family. I may bark at first but if you take the time to get to know me, I am actually very loving and kind. I love to get my head and shoulders scratched and I am very smart. I am just scared and lonely and need someone who will take the time to train me. A Rottie experienced person would be fantastic. Please come and visit me at the Central Illinois Small Animal Rescue in Colfax, IL. (Less)

Peyton will be 4 in September. She is a very loving dog. She is very energetic and lives with a male dog without issues and 4 children aged 4 to 18. I have never seen aggressive behavior towards humans from her. She has been with us since she was 2 months old. We love her dearly and hate to get rid oof her. She is house trained but has excitement urination. She sleeps in a kennel indoors. She has had her 3 year rabies vacination (5/2016) but needs the other yearly shots. She cannot be with cats. She needs trained to not run away. I have to find her a good home ASAP due to her running off and harming cats. Prefer in the country. Need references. I have to be sure she will be loved and treated properly. She is my baby and I really hate that I have to get rid of her. (Less)

*MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (SUBURBAN CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* Hello everyone! My name is Ari, and I'm a sweet senior girl with a lot of love yet to give! I like to think of myself as aged to perfection. You know, like fine wine or good cheese. I'm a beautiful, brown eyed girl with an expressive look that will melt your heart! I'm a Rottweiler mix, so I'm just a tad smaller than your average Rottie and weigh in at about 100 pounds of love. And at 10 years young, I'm a Special Reserve vintage. I was rescued by Fetching Tails Foundation after being dumped by the side of the road in a local suburb; a witness saw my family push me out of their car and drive away. I'm not sure why, because my Foster Mom and Dad (FM and FD) say I'm just about as sweet as they come, and that I'm such a good girl! Maybe they didn't want me anymore because I move a little slower than I used to, or because I had some untreated health issues. Not to worry, though! FTF made certain I got the treatment I needed. Once FTF heard about me, my story took a wonderful turn for the better. Now I'm in a foster home where I'm loved and pampered, with a furry foster sister to keep me company. My FM just loves it when I greet her at the door wagging my nub of a tail. I'm an easy-going girl, and I'm no longer interested in running through the grass chasing squirrels - I leave that to my much younger foster sister. Instead, I prefer to be close to you. If you're busy folding laundry or fixing dinner, I'm right there to supervise. If it's time to kick up your feet and relax with your favorite TV show or a classic book, I enjoy lying near your feet and just being nearby in case you want to pet me. I love having my belly rubbed, and if you hit just the right spot on my belly or behind my ears, I'll 'purr' (in a very dignified, doggy-kind-of-way, of course!). If you stop petting me before I'm ready, I gently place my paw on your knee while gazing into your eyes. Gentle, pretty, endearing, and all-around charming - that's me! I'd like my new home to be fairly laid back. I like everyone I meet, but sometimes younger dogs and kids don't understand that I'm not as spry as I'd like to be. If there are other dogs, I would prefer older, more settled fur siblings like myself. I'm good with older kids who understand that I'm not as playful these days, and I would enjoy a fenced yard so I can go outside off leash to relax or do my business. I'm fully house trained, and I even know to go potty in a specific area of the yard - no hunting for messy piles in the middle of your lawn with me! I'm well-educated, too. I know 'sit,' 'down,' 'paw,' and 'come,' but if you want to teach me more commands, I'm game! Hey, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. I'm crate trained, but I don't really need to be crated -- I know what's acceptable for me to chew on, and I pride myself on my excellent manners! I'm fine being left alone for 8 or 9 hours at a time, although I'm lucky enough that my foster home has a dog walker for me and the foster sis on the few occasions no one is home. I have to admit, I kinda like that I don't get left more than 5 or 6 hours at a time. I'm used to having people around (FM and FD have alternating schedules), but I'm adaptable if everyone is out during the day. It would be great if you had the flexibility to work from home one or two days a week, though! I'm really looking forward to finding a family who will love and cherish me for the rest of my life. I know I still have a lot to give to a family, or just to one person! If you think I would be a good fit for your home, please hurry and contact my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation. I'm waiting patiently for you!

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Rottweiler in Illinois|
Rottweiler Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The Rottweiler is a large breed herding and guard dog. Rottweilers are very stable and brave. This breed needs a firm, experienced handler from the very beginning. Rottweilers can be good family pets that are trustworthy with children and other pets if they are trained and socialized from an early age. If a Rottweiler is not treated properly it can become aggressive. Rottweilers need plenty of exercise and can run in open country without a leash. Rottweilers can live in an apartment or a home with a small yard if they get enough exercise.
