|Rescue Me ID: 17-02-07-00603Bridgette (female)|
This poor little girl was found running loose on those bitter cold sub zero days we had.She was taken in by a kindly soul thank goodness and made herself right at home.The people who found her tried to no avail to find her home .They loved her dearly and wanted to keep her,but were only allowed one dog by their landlord ,and that spot was already filled, so here she is with me. Once again, she made hersellf immedietly at home,even with the other fosters here.Not even a curled lip as they sniffed and checked her out. She is so sweet,no stranger fear at all,pick her up,on your lap,she welcomes it all.She is housebroken,but would need someone who has time to spend with her and let her out often. She loves the fenced yard and explores every inch of it.She's always the last one to come in enjoying every minute of it. Bridget is approx 9-10 yrs old and 13 lbs. She does have a fatty lympoma on her leg,nothing to worry about,no meds,and doesn't hurt her, but seems to be in good health. She loves to go for walks,and would be fine with that if no fenced yard. if you would like to meet Bridget,please call Karen at 630 851-9354 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Her adoption fee is 75.00. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 17-02-07-00542Gleason (male)|
Well who do you suppose is the life of the party? He will keep you entertained to the moon and back, that's right, it is Gleason appropriately named after the late great Jackie Gleason. They both could put a smile on your face and are sure to entertain. Gleason is one of those dogs that is perpetually happy, every day is a gift. This little guy is just a year old and would be a wonderful addition to an active family. Gleason lives to play, he would enjoy living with another dog or two. That is not necessary but he does great with the other dogs and would enjoy a buddy to play with(and keep each other busy!) Gleason loves his toys as well, likes to play fetch and will occasionally bring the ball back-lol. He is just as happy playing with a stick he finds too, he is not a fussy boy. He can run like a gazelle and jump like a frog, leaping over other dogs, even sideways without much effort, he could would be an excellent agility dog. Gleason is a very smart boy and learns quickly, rat terriers are known to be wonderful, loyal and loving family dogs. His adoption fee is $275. Please email Kristine at email@example.com (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 17-01-01-00231Barry (male)|
This handsome and debonair fellow has been with us for a few months now, what can I say, he likes it here! Well, that is not the full story, although he seems perfectly happy the perfect person has just not come across this wonderful boy. Barry is a chihuahua, maybe rat terrier mix? He is as cute as a button(love those freckles) and a really great little guy. But, he also needs a strong person in his life. Those of you that have had hard headed little dogs in their lives know what I am talking about-LOL!! Barry is very well mannered, funny, loving and sweet, but if he thinks he can get away being less than polite then he is going to give it a shot. Like many chihuahua's they need to know who is boss or they will throw their hat into the ring we have to let them know that yes, we love them, but no...they are not in charge. Barry knows this with us and is sweet and loving. His adoption fee is $150. He is just 3 years old and about 8 pounds. Please email Kristine at email@example.com. (Less)

lulu is a great dog hwever she needs an experienced owner - she was probably abused by her former family as she freaks out to men with big boots and if someone approaches her fast. The foster home has had no issues with her she potty trained

|Rescue Me ID: 16-11-09-00229Isaac (male)|
Handsome, charming Isaac is a stealth operator - he'll steal your hearth without you noticing! He's a 7 year old American Eskimo/terrier supermutt who arrived at ACL as a stray. He was very worried and unsure when he first arrived, and he didn't want to make friends. We knew it was an act, though, and soon found that he's a loyal, loving, tolerant dog who adores being with his people. He takes a little bit of patience to warm up to new people, but when you're in with Isaac, you're IN! His trust once earned is a permanent gift. Isaac likes dogs his size or smaller (he's about 25 pounds), and he'd enjoy being a solo dog OR a companion to an already existing pet. He's a persnickety little terrier, so he'd do best with adopters 16 and up. Isaac's dream is to be the loyal companion to a quiet home who just wants a dog to go for short walks, have lots of pet time, and share their lives with. If Isaac could be the missing piece you've been looking for, please email Gabrielle at email@example.com to schedule a meet! (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-08-10-00414Sammy (male)|
We hope you like your sweets with a dash of tabasco, because that's Sammy in a nut shell! This absolutely adorable 5 year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua is a perfect blend of sugar and spice. He arrived at ACL as a very frightened stray, but Sammy has set about winning all our hearts! He's an affectionate, low-key, social little guy who bonds tightly and loves to be cuddled. He'd really love a home with one or two people that want a constant companion to dote upon. Like many of his breed, Sammy tends to get feisty when he's frightened or unsure - it's hard to be a little squirt in a big world! For that reason, Sammy would do best in a home with small dog experience. If you know what little chichis are like, you'll recognize Sammy's bluster for what it is - nerves. Once Sammy trusts you, he's your for life. He'll do best in an adult home, possibly with another small dog or even cat to hang out with. He'd do fine as an only dog, too, as long as you take him for walks, give him lots of cuddle time, and let him hide under a pillow - his favorite place to be! If you'd like to meet Sammy in person, please email Gabrielle at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Less)

|Animal ID: 15-01-05-00483Doug and Sue (male)|
Doug and Susan are a pair of adorable yet shy rat terrier siblings looking for a loving guardian. We don't what kind of situation Doug and Susan came from, but they are much more trusting of other dogs than they are of people. Doug is nine pounds and Susan is only seven pounds. They were turned into Chicago Animal Care and Control by their family. I'm assuming the family had a lot of dogs and didn't spend much time socialized them with people. So, Doug and Susan are looking for a patient dog-lover to take them under their wing for training to boost their confidence and a lot of love. They groom each other, snuggle together, and never let each other out of view. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-12-02-00469Trixie (female)|
All Trixie wants for Christmas is a real home who will love and care for her forever! Trixie was dumped with her mom and siblings on a rural road and then in a no kill very rural shelter for a year with no socializing. She is shy of strangers, better in a home without children not because she's bad but because she wouldn't know how to act around them. Once she adjusted to being handled she was very easy to leash train, crate train and all around did great and has a more confident energetic personality then her 2 sisters. She tends to bark at things when she is outside or hears something, hunting dog personality. Quite when crated and in the house, but would probably bark at things outside a window if she could see something. She was intimidated by our bossy cat, current on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. She was heartworm negative when tested last year and has been on preventative. She's good with the dogs she is with but will be bossy with them if she can get away with it. She is dominant over her very shy, submissive sister. She really doesn't know any commands but would love someone who would like to teach her some fun tricks, and that there are other great people out there besides us. She is now almost 2 years old and weighs 28 pounds. Vet's phone number you use currently or in the past is required to adopt for a reference. We have 30 rescued dogs of all sizes all praying for a real home! Please do not consider a dog for Christmas unless you want a dog as a family member for its whole life. (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Illinois|
Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The Rat Terrier is a small breed of hunting dog also sometimes known as a Feist. Rat Terriers are vivacious, playful, and bold. This breed is great with children. Adult Rat Terriers adapt well to adoption. Rat Terriers are very smart and trainable. This breed can live in an apartment but needs plenty of vigorous exercise each day. Rat Terriers enjoy romping in a fenced yard, but because they are enthusiastic diggers, fences should be buried or reinforced around the base.
