Check out the doggy in the window!
These are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:
This fun and adorable little terrier mix is Willie. Willie craves love and attention – and a lap! Offer him your lap, up he’ll jump, and he’ll be your best friend. He is a lover and always has a fresh supply of kisses for everyone he meets. Once warming up to you, he will follow you everywhere you go and will make the perfect choice for someone wanting a one-on-one relationship with a canine companion. Willie loves to sleep under your covers by your feet. Or, you may wake up with Willie next to you in your arms. He just loves to snuggle and be held.
Willie is 12 pounds and estimated to be only about a year old. Because he is young, he needs a family who can provide him sufficient exercise. He is making good progress on his housebreaking and is looking forward to puppy school. He appears to get along with other dogs, at least small dogs (who he enjoys playing with) and when introduced properly. He isn’t accustomed to a lot of noise and commotion, so he would do best in a home without small children or a lot of people coming and going. Willie would do best with a person/couple/family that isn’t away routinely for long hours.
Willie’s adoption fee of $325 includes vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) combination, Bordetella vaccination, Rabies vaccination, heartworm preventative, routine deworming, flea/tick preventative, microchip and neuter.
Hi! My name is Piper and I just might be the dog that you have been waiting for! I was found as a stray and spent about 10 days in Chicago Animal Care and Control waiting to be rescued. I got sick while I was there, but my foster mom has nursed me back to health and I am ready to be your furever friend. The vet thinks I’m 2 years old and I weigh about 10 pounds. I can run really fast and jump really high, and I probably need more exercise than most dogs my size, so a back yard or regular trips to a dog park would be super. In fact, if you wanted to train me on an agility course I would love it! You can see me in this short video clip when a trainer did an assessment of me meeting a few dogs for the first time and showing off how athletic I am. I had been cooped up for awhile and, well, I like to run. Flyball anyone?
Some of my favorite things to do are lay in the sun and roll in the grass, take long walks, run my butt off and then curl up next to my foster mom. I will probably follow you wherever you go if you’ll let me, but if you have things to do I am content to relax on my own as long as I can find you if I need to check in. I’m not crazy about being crated but will tolerate it. If you say “no” or make a disapproving sound, I will stop what I am doing and listen to you cuz I want your approval more than anything in the world and then get lots of attention with belly rubs and ear scratches. If you re looking for a small, playful, loving pup to share your life with, I am your girl!
My adoption fee of $325 includes: vet exam, heartworm test (neg.), bordetella/rabies/distemper vaccinations, routine deworming, flea control, monthly heartworm prevention, microchip and spay.

Please understand that though you may want to take these adorable animals home with you when you see them, you will first have to go through the application process through Adopt-A-Pet. Applications can be found here; fill it out and send it to Adopt-A-Pet. One of their adoption counselors will contact you.
We are one of the many foster homes for Adopt-A-Pet, and rarely know the adoption status of these dogs. You can see all of the animals that Adopt-A-Pet has and contact them regarding the availability of a particular dog on their main site here.
