Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). One look a those eyes, and you can guess where this pretty girl gets her name! This Elizabeth Taylor is a little slow to warm up. We don't know much about her background, but whatever happened to her has made her a little nervous. She seems to do best when with another dogs...trusting other dogs before she trusts a human being. If you are gentle and take your time, soon Elizabeth Taylor will snuggle up to you for some cuddling. Elizabeth Taylor is a dainty ~28 lbs now. She has a low-to-medium energy level. And while she loves to run around the yard playing with the other dogs, she also knows when to chill out and snuggle on the couch. Elizabeth Taylor is about 1 1/2 years old. She is not a chewer, although she has chewed several electrical cords in her foster home (!!! but something has to power those bright blue eyes!) She won't chew a nylabone but likes peanut butter in her kong. She is good with kids and dogs, but we've not seen her with cats. She's still working on potty training and leash walking. Sometimes Elizabeth Taylor gets very scared and you will have to come to her rescue...picking her up to carry her to her safe place. While she gets nervous and afraid, she does not growl and does not seem to be so fearful that she would bite. Please get in touch to meet this beautiful girl with the amazing eyes! Elizabeth Taylor is looking for that perfect Richard Burton, or maybe Eddie Fisher, or no...maybe Richard Burton again... :)

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Crete, IL
      Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Mixed (short coat). Wishbone is a short and stout black pit bull mix. He was a court case dog and came to Dogs Are Deserving Rescue with a punctured eye and a permanent head tilt. Despite whatever horrors have been done to him, he is a gentle, trusting and calm little man. And he’s healthy now. Wishbone is a giant cuddle bug who LOVES your attention and longs to cuddle with you on the couch. Wishbone doesn't bark at all but he does snorts and grunt and when he sleeps, well….he snores. :) Regardless, to his fosters, it is endearing…and Wishbone sleeps in their bed. He loves people and large dogs, however, we’re not sure about little dogs. He doesn’t care for cats…not at all. This little man is house broken and appreciates a good long walk. Also, Wishbone is a Safe Humane dog, which includes a lifetime of training through Safe Humane. He loves to play but can get a little over-excited and sometimes does not realize his strength. You can experience his strength if you play his favorite game with him…Tug-of-war. Just grab a toy, or a rope, or anything you can pull on and he’s in the game. He loves his treats…so please be sure to stock up. And you’ll want to listen for his funny little snort...like a giant pug / piglet. If you think Wishbone is meant to be your dog and you his…please contact Dogs are Deserving Rescue for more information. Hurry! He’s waiting!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Mickey is a patch-work pit bull mix, with a Mickey Mouse emblem on his back. He is a good boy who has been patiently waiting for a home to call his own. Mickey is selective with dogs he likes. Generally he loves people, but does not like people or dogs to get in his face, it just makes him nervous. So, he would be best in a home without little children who do not understand. He loves to play fetch and run through the yard! And he does great on walks...he absolutely LOVES walks! And since he is totally housebroken, he will want to take you for walks often. Mickey wants ALL of your attention and will be a great friend to the perfect person. Thank you! Hope to meet you soon!!

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Just look at that face! Patient. Curious. Listening. She only wants to be with you and to hear you talk. And those eyes--one blue, one brown! Gaze into those eyes...and wait for sweet Lola's smile. What a remedy for screen-addiction! Just think of the things you can do with this super sweetheart by your side: Go for a run, take a long walk, snuggle on the couch with a book or a remote control. She'll be there! Need to run some errands? She loves her car rides! And Lola enjoys her baths, her ball, bed and Kong toy. She is house trained, and she's smart. Lola doesn't get into anything when left alone in the house, and she doesn't chew on anything but her toys. She knows "sit", "stay", "paw", "leave it", "no", and her favorite, "come"! She is good with dogs who are also good with dogs--but will not put up with cranky-pants dogs. We're not sure what Lola thinks about cats, but we hear she lived with one for a little while. She is good with kids. This doll is about 5 years old and weighs 42 pounds. Her family was forced to give her up because of an unfortunate housing situation and felt they had no other alternative. We know it must have broken her heart, so we are anxious for her to find just the right people to make her happy forever. She only wants to be with her people, to sit near the ones she loves. Lola will make a fine, easy addition to your home and into your heart. Please give us a call to meet this sweet pumpkin!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Payton has had a rough go of life. He would do best as an only dog in a home with adults only. Payton attaches very quickly to people and just longs to be loved. He needs a soul-mate, someone who will talk to him, teach him and share the world with him.

      Breed: Anatolian Shepherd
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Crete, IL
      Posted Breed: Anatolian Shepherd (short coat). Handsome Dexter has had a tough time... a time full of heartbreak and loneliness that still shows sometimes in his expressive face. You see, his owner passed away. And as if that heartache wasn't enough, he was left to fend for himself for a while. Thankfully, a very caring couple helped save him by getting him to a shelter. He spent a long two months in a shelter until Dogs Are Deserving heard about him and came for him. Despite his sad start, Dexter is a happy boy and is eager to meet new people and other dogs. He is a large pup and full of excited energy. He needs a home with a 4-6 feet high fence so that he can race around and burn off some of his extra energy. He also needs someone who likes to play fetch, and who will take him on long slow walks. He takes his time on walks, sniffing and taking it all in. It's best to do slow intros with Dexter. He's a lot of happy, thankful dog and may be too much for those not understanding dogs. And he's not much of a cat dog...so he is better suited to a cat-less home. Dexter is house-broken and knows "sit", "stay", "give paw" and is working on "down". He is eager to please and ready to learn. He likes to have a treat reward for a job well done and takes treats gently. He does not like being crated. Instead he'd rather settle in and snuggle up with you. His dogwalker is a big fan too... "Dexter is such a fun-loving, happy-go-lucky dog! He is full of life and radiates pure joy!" Dexter has impressed his dogwalker with how much he loves his walks and romps in the yard with his tennis ball or rope toy...not to mention his tremendous focus and willingness to learn. Proof? He's mastered the eat-the-treat-on-my-nose flip and catch, in one short lesson! Dexter thrives on positivity and affection. He loves to be praised and in return, he will shower you with kisses! "This big goof has so much love to give and will quickly steal your heart!" He has so much love to give and deserves a home filled with active people who will appreciate his enthusiasm. Please reach out to Dogs Are Deserving Rescue today if you think your home is the perfect fit for Dexter

      Location: Crete, IL
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Three pit bull mix puppies were rescued after being posted on Craigslist at only 3 weeks old. Their mom was chained to a tree without food, water or shelter. The puppies were in a dirt floor chicken coop, without their mother. When the rescuers arrived most of the puppies had died. Eventually, the mom and these three survivors were rescued. Carmine is a laid-back tan 7 week old baby with light-colored eyes. He is truly the mellow one of the bunch. Carmine loves to be with people…and so far his favorite thing to do is to sit in the kitchen and watch his foster mom cook. He’s also a cuddled and loves to chew on his stuffed animals. Carmine is a little slower than the rest to learn how to do things. He will cry when his siblings run to another area and leave him behind. But he is now learning how to go down the stairs, so we think he’ll catch up soon! He’s also still working on house bathroom rules, but of course, he is only 7 weeks old!

      Sex: Female Female

      Location: Crete, IL
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Roxy was surrendered at Chicago Animal Care and Control because of moving/landlord issues. It was clear that Roxy wasn't well cared for. She had missing hair patches due to fleas and overgrown nails making it uncomfortable for her to walk. Roxy was terrified in her cage and caught an illness in the shelter. In a matter of days, her status URGENT--she wasn't "showing well" in her cage due to her fear and her sickness. With a cough and very bad congestion, the Animal Welfare League pulled her out and took her into their shelter, where she remained in isolation for over two weeks. Dogs are Deserving found a foster and got her out of the shelter and into a home. Roxy really blossomed once she got into a home. She seemed to know she was finally safe. She sat, gave paw with both paws, went down on command, rolled onto her back, and went right into her cage to lay down. She is a big lap dog. She loves being close to her people, and will nap right on top of you. When she has been crated, Roxy/Baby Bear has a little happy dance she does in the crate before opening it. We believe that her previous owners may have used items to hit her, so she does flinch at anything that is swung near her and at loud noises. Roxy/Baby Bear needs to be in a home with no cats or small animals. And at this point, no other dogs - pending her training. Roxy has been showing some reactivity on leash and is in need of training. DADR is working on getting her into class. And we expect any adopter to continue to practice dog etiquette with her long term. She’s a loving, sassy little thing and she really enjoys belly rubs. Roxy loves to play co-pilot on car rides in her foster daddy’s truck. She loves her dog food and treats. She also loves balls--so much so that she loves them to death...destroying them quickly. She just started getting a hang of the tug toy and is really enjoying that too. Roxy/Baby Bear likes to lounge around the house. She is very interested in looking out the window at the small animals that pass by - sometimes a little too interested that the blinds need to be shut. She also loves to go on walks and on a nice jog. She loves hearing any words that have to do with food and walk! And Roxy/Baby Bear has a lot of patience... waiting at the top of the stairs for her walks until her foster daddy is ready for her to come down for her walk.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Yes! You have found me! That hunk that you have been looking for is me! My name is Stevie, I am about 2 1/2 years old. I have quite a sad story that they tell about me looking for my happy ending. It was February 2014, they say there was a phone call made of a really skinny pitbull running the streets of Gary, IN. It was really really cold outside, I had been out there for months! I got so lucky that you human people care so much, that a team from Dogs are Deserving spent 4 hours looking for me! When they found me, I was in bad shape. I was so skinny, only weighed about 30lbs and had two BB pellets in my heiny. I also had to have a tooth pulled, I broke it...Ouch! I have been with my foster mommy for sometime now, she has had lots of love and patients to give me while I was healing. I got to go to school and completed Doggie K9 Academy at top of my class! I transformed to a puppy in a 90 lb dogs body! I have learned so much, and have come such a long way, but I am looking forward to learning so much more! If you adopt me, I get to go back to school for 7 more classes! (Included in my adoption fee) I have turned out to be just a silly boy, I could entertain you for hours! I have learned not to chew on things that don't belong to me, but I do love bones and toys! I love people and love to snuggle on the couch, I will even hold your hand while watching some TV. My foster mommy sometimes calls me "Bug" it's so cute! I love car rides, I am a great back seat driver, I won't say a word, just look out the window. I would do best with dogs my size – I don't like those furry things called cats. Every now and then when I get excited I tend to revert back to a bit of puppy, I just need to be reminded to not do that anymore and I stop. I am fully potty trained, very smart and eager to please, I Love me some treats! I hope you will give me the chance to be your hunk and complete my story with the happiest ending ever! Dogs are Deserving adoption fee includes that I will come up to date on all vaccinations, microchip and spay/neuter. If you would like to meet me. please contact Dogs are Deserving directly before heading to an event. Thank you! Hope to meet you soon!
