Bella is something! She's beautiful, sweet, happy to be with you and so playful with other dogs. She's serene, keeps her cool, full of curiosity. She's been around cats and behaved marvelously. Bella is up-to-date on shots, spayed and micro-chipped. She seems to be potty-trained and will be very easy to command train. Come meet her. She's ready for her forever home.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-09-22-00099AARON (male)|
Beautiful Aaron is heart worm Negative and he really, really needs out of our shelter!! He is in a small cage and he is not doing well at our shelter, medically he is doing great but mentally he needs out of a cage. Like Rocky (below), he has spent way too long behind bars. They lived at a closed 'sanctuary' in Southern Illinois and all of the dogs had to be carried off of the property and into the vans waiting. The dogs that were left to run loose would attack them, however all of the dogs have been removed from the property and the facility is closed.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-09-21-00292Maynard (male)|
Maynard is a young, goofy, male pointer mix looking for his forever home. He keeps his kennel clean (he stops barking once he knows everyone has left the house), rides well in the car, and is great with other dogs - he is currently living with 3 GSPs! He sticks close in the yard without a leash or a fence, and is as happy as can be. Maynard is working on basic commands and responds to his name. He loves to follow his people around the house! Don't miss out on lovable Maynard!

|Rescue Me ID: 15-07-28-00626Lance (male)|
Lance Beagle/Pointer/Lab mix 40 - 45lbs DOB 6/19/2013 Lance was abandoned in Florida and is one of the lucky ones! He found rescue with us here in Illinois and he is now looking for his forever family. He has been in a foster home here in Illinois for about a few weeks now and his foster family tells us that he is...Such a sweet boy. Very patient with their energetic Boston. He is playful, and loves to be outside. Fully potty trained, and working on basic commands. They do have to be careful about leaving shoes around, because to him they look just like chew toys, but training should correct that. He is wonderful with the whole family. They do not have small children, but would be cautious as Lance still has a lot of puppy in him, and could knock small children down. We also believe he would do better in a home with another canine as he loves to be around his foster brother and gets direction from him. He will need contined training and would do best not being left home alone crated for more then a few hours per day as he really doesn't like the crate, but will go in them. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email email@example.com for an application or additional details.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-05-16-00073REEBA (female)|
Breed guess -Pointer, Hound, Beagle, Jack Russell?? Reeba is a 1 1/2 to 2 year old very sweet girl! She came to Illinois form a high kill shelter and surprised us with some puppies she brought along! She delivered the pups and was an amazing mom! Now that the babies are finding their homes, it's time for Reeba to find hers. She is very sweet and is doing amazing in her in a foster home with children and other dogs, however she has not been exposed to cats so we are unsure how she would react to them. She is doing great with house breaking, but she is hesitant to go out when it's storming. We don't think that she had much of a life seems to be learning how to be a dog. She may not have had much socialization with people or dogs when she was very young and she is learning new things every day. She does well on a leash but would really like to have a fenced yard to run in. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application or additional details.

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

|Rescue Me ID: 15-03-08-00349Petunia (female)|
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, 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. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 13-07-17-00104Tide (male)|
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 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. This breed is best for a home with lots of open land.
