    Oak Park, IL - Adopt Lily the Pointer/Lab/Pit-Mix Lily is a sweet, playful, tall and lanky two-year-old, 55-pound, female, pointer/lab/pit bull-mix with warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian. Lily adores other dogs and is even used as a temperament tester at the shelter because she's so reliable. She'll make someone a fabulous family dog; she lived with children aged five and seven who she adored. She knows the commands sit, paw and down and is a good at doggy daycare or at dog parks. She is housebroken and crate-trained. Lily is healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested and micro-chipped. She does best on a ... (Read More)special food for her skin allergies.

Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Emmeline is a two year old playful, sweet-tempered hound/pointer mix who's looking for a home with another dog. She LOVES other dogs. Em came into ACL with her one of her puppies, and she was very scared and standoffish. It only took a few days of love and stability to see her start to come out of her shell! Now, she loves going on walks, playing with other dogs of all sizes, and getting cuddles and treats from her human friends. Emmeline will continue to blossom in a home out of the shelter, and another dog will help her do that! She's got piercing blue eyes and a unique speckled coat - if you want a dog that people will ooh and aah over, ... (Read More)Emmeline is the lady for you! (Less)

Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lily is a stunning white two-year old Labrador retriever/pittie/pointer mix. She has these great speckled pointer ears! Lily is a super easy, lovable, gentle, playful young dog who adores other dogs and gets along with everyone. She'd make a great family dog for children or other animals - she's very tolerant and sweet. Lily loves going to daycare, and when her daycare center found out she was at ACL, they called to tell us what a superstar she is! She's active and fun, and she'd love a home that wanted to go on adventures with her. There's not much Lily can't handle. She'll make a loving companion for almost any family.

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-09-00467Turkleton (Turk) (male)

Pointer Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Arthritis 

    Turk is a 7-year-old mixed-breed dog. We are not sure what breeds he is, but I would guess there is pointer or dalmatian in there somewhere. He does have a very dominant personality and must be with an experienced dog owner. He does have aggressive tendencies with other dogs, and while he is generally a fantastic dog that loves to jump up and give kisses, he has bit before (approximately 4 years ago - NO repeats whatsoever). He is great with my toddler; however, I would not feel comfortable placing him in a house with kids. Even with his mature age, Turk is very high energy. He loves to run and play and even does well running next to a bike. ... (Read More)We have noticed a more limited range of movement on his right hip lately, so we think he may have a touch of arthritis. He is slightly hard of hearing, as well, from chronic hematomas in his ears.Turk is such a loyal dog, and he truly is a fantastic companion who loves nothing more to curl up in a recliner and hang out. We hope to find a home for him where he will get the exercise and stimulation he needs to be happy. (Less)

Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Kirby is a gorgeous, goofy 6 month old pointer/hound mix! He's 100% sweetheart - he loves to play with other dogs, cuddle with everyone including young children, and he even likes cats. Kirby would thrive in an active home. He loves the dog beach, going for hikes, and playing the day away. He would excel at a training class because he's super smart, and his gentle, tolerant temperament makes him an ideal family pet. Kirby would do best in a home with another playful dog to keep him occupied and socialized.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-08-00349Petunia (female)

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Petunia is a loving, friendly two year old tricolor shepherd mix. She came to us as a stray, and though she was never claimed, it's clear from her happy-go-lucky attitude with people that she was once loved and cared for. Petunia loves toys and cuddles, and she makes a great walking and hiking buddy. We believe Petunia was kept outdoors for most of her life - she's still very unsure of normal household situations. She was startled by a ceiling fan! For this reason, Petunia needs a home that's willing to take her to training and to be patient with her as she learns to be an inside pet for the first time in her life. Petunia is housebroken, ... (Read More)and she's friendly with other dogs given a proper introduction. Because she's so new to home life, we wouldn't recommend her in a home with young children who may be too much for her.

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Isabelle loves to go for walks and listens well. She walks nicely on a leash. She gets along with everyone but cats! Cats are evil and there isn't a good one out there. (says Isabelle) She would do well in a family with other dogs as she does not like to be alone. Isabelle was spayed when she came to us so her total adoption fee would be $50. She has been microchipped, had her shots and is ready to go. Isabelle is currently in foster care.

Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you an athletic person who loves a nice solid outgoing dog? Tide is a very handsome boy, weighs about 70 pounds, about 1 year old, heartworm negative and current on all shots and health care. He is a very solid, fun loving, energetic dog who can wear out any dog here playing, except a pit mix we had who is also higher energy. At the same time when crated he is perfectly well behaved, quiet and calm. He loves to sniff about and seems to have potential for a search and rescue dog or something to use his skills to advantage. Plus he is a very confident dog and loves to hop in the car, or go anywhere you want to go which would be perfect for ... (Read More)a working dog. He is crate trained, never potties in the crate or kennel. He was rescued from a very high kill shelter in AL, where many dogs never make it out. I seen his face and just didnt want him cut short when hes still a pup with SO much potential! He will need exercise to be a good dog, either playing with another dog (med or large he loves to rough house with them!) or jogging, agility, tagging along a bike. This dog is athletic and needs an active family, no couch potatoe here (although after play time I am sure he would love couch time!!) He knows sit and he loves attention. His favorite thing other then playing is to flop over on his back so you can rub his belly! He wants to meet anyone who has visited and so many people have been very impressed with how handsome he is, but they were wanting a small dog. I havent worked with him much at all but he does learn fast! Please email for more photos he is solid built and acts very much like a lab! Contract and vet reference required to adopt. A friend has sponsored half of his adoption fee of $200. to help him find a great forever home! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pointer in Illinois
    Pointer Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The English Pointer is a proud, elegant hunting dog. Pointers are good with children and devoted to their families. Pointers need to be with people and need to be socialized as puppies. Some Pointers can be skittish or aloof. Pointers need plenty of exercise and activity to be happy and healthy.

lnteresting Pointer Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Once a Pointer has cornered its game, it will freeze in place to point out its quarry. The modern Pointer is a mixture of several breeds including Foxhounds, Greyhounds, and Bulldogs. The English Pointer as it is currently known has only been around for about eighty years. Earlier Pointers became popular in England in the seventeenth century.
