Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. If Heartland had a yearbook Blade would definitely win Best Smile! Blade has this unique habit of showing all his teeth to show he's happy and he can even do it with the command "Smile"! Some might mistake this for a sign of aggression but some dogs do smile, and Blade is one of them! It's the cutest thing ever. Blade is approximately 8 years old and weighs right around 40 pounds. Blade came to Heartland all the way from Miami and he certainly had a tough life before we got him. Blade has scars on his side and stomach, and he also does not like to be touched around the neck or back end if he does not know you. Blade does not like most other dogs and will attempt to pull towards them on walks, but with his new harness on he is very responsive to his walker's direction. Other than that Blade is very well leash-trained, and knows his commands well. He's very treat motivated which makes him even easier to train! When Blade accepts you into his heart all he wants is to smile for you, give kisses, and try to sit on your lap. Because Blade has been mistreated in the past, he needs an owner who will understand his issues and give him time to adjust. Please open your heart to this deserving dog.

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.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Miss Shay was surrendered to Heartland by her owners. They adopted her as a puppy so she has lived in a home all her life. She is housebroken, and the family says she was good with their baby, cat, and other dogs. Shay is stressed and confused in the shelter. We would love for her to find a new home quickly, since the home life is what she knows. Shay is a beautiful 5-year-old strawberry blond girl with the sweetest amber eyes. She is a very good and loving girl who deserves a second chance at a forever home.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Jorge is a sweet young guy with the most adorable little face that you can’t help but fall in love with!! He is a 2-1/2 year-old Chihuahua mix who weighs 15 pounds. This cutie came to Heartland from an animal control in Kentucky. Jorge found the shelter a stressful place and it was very difficult for him to adjust. We were so happy when one of his many admirers decided to foster him. Now that Jorge is in a foster home we are able to see his true personality. Here is a happy update from Jorge’s foster mom “Jorge is a loving little dog who likes to sit on your lap or near you and get and give attention. He is a true Velcro dog, he wants to be with his people. Once he became familiar with the neighborhood, he walks nicely on a leash and with other dogs. He also invites other dogs to play. If you are busy, he is content to play with soft toys quietly on his own. He likes to sleep at the foot of the bed outside of the covers, although he does appreciate a blanket on cool nights. His foster family is working on training with him, and he knows sit and off. Jorge is wary of men, and it takes him some time to warm up to men. He is very sensitive, and gets to know people slowly. It helps when they come down to his level. Jorge will do best with a patient owner who will work with him and understand he does best when he is able to adjust at his own pace.” If you are a loving and patient person who would love to give Jorge the life he deserves, please contact us to make plans to meet Jorge soon! He is waiting for you!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. The Dude is the perfect name for this sweet boy because he is so cool! He is a lovable boy and oh so sweet! The Dude was surrender to a shelter in Southern Illinois where Heartland found him. We just had to rescue this boy and help him find his forever happy life! When The Dude arrived he was diagnosed with a disorder called Laryngeal paralysis. This is a disorder in which the nerves that control the muscles and cartilage that open and close the larynx do not function properly, causing breathing difficulties. A veterinarian in Chicago has provided IV stem cell treatments for him. His breathing and torn ACLs are significantly improved. The Dude has other medical issues that our staff will be happy to discuss with you. The Dude loves going for short walks and loves other dogs! He is a mellow, calm, and snuggly, loving boy who will make a great forever family member! The Dude is currently in a foster home, so please email or call the shelter to make an appointment to meet him soon! You are sure to fall in love with him!

      Little Foot

      rescue
      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. We are so proud to have Little Foot as an ambassador for a breed that is often portrayed negatively. This handsome 2-1/2 year old pittie boy could not be sweeter and more loving. We were able to save him from euthanasia at a pound in central IL and now he's looking for his loving forever home. Because Little Foot was previously a backyard dogs who was left tied up outside all day, he does need to work on a few things, like walking without pulling, but he does very well with an experienced handler and a better collar/harness. He just has tons of energy so we take him into the ball run with one of his favorite rope toys and let him burn some of it off! He entertains himself easily running back and forth with his toy, and even tossing it to himself. Little Foot loves to be loved by all humans but he is not a huge fan of other dogs his size. Little dogs don't seem to faze him but big dogs wind him up. We hope you will come meet Little Foot and let us show you how wonderful he is!

      Sprinkles

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sprinkles is an adorable 6-year-old Australian Cattle Dog/Terrier mix who weighs right around 60 pounds. Sweet, bashful Sprinkles was at our shelter years ago and unfortunately recently returned because his owners could no longer care for him. He is not thrilled to be back in the noisy kennel, so we try to give him extra TLC in the quiet training hall. There, he will do all of his commands for treats, and he's very obedient. He is wary of his surroundings here at first but it's so cute when he comes out of his shell and plays and prances around with his favorite Kong toy. Outside Sprinkles walks very nicely and he is most definitely house broken from his years living in a home. Sprinkles would do best in a home with no small kids because he does not like a lot of noise and commotion. He would be a great dog to be a couch potato with on these cold winter evenings! Please come meet him today!
