FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60613
AGE: Est DOB: 2004
WEIGHT: 14lbs
KIDS: Older
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Unknown

HISTORY:
Angel was an owner-surrender to a Chicago animal control facility.

ABOUT:
Angel is a foxy little lady – as many who have seen her have commented that she looks like a little fox. In actuality she’s a 14 lb Pomeranian mix. The shelter had her listed at 15 years old but she doesn’t seem or act that old.
Angel absolutely loves going for walks. She becomes animated anytime she thinks she is going to go outside but when she hears the word “walk” she gets very puppy like and will do a dance for you. She can barely contain her excitement. Angel’s foster parents learned quickly that they can’t say “outside” or “walk” without Angel becoming quite eager to head toward the door.
Angel wags her tail and comes running over when you call her, reporting in for pets and tummy rubs. She’s a huge fan of those tummy rubs. The more time she spends in her foster home the more she seems to enjoy snuggling up with the resident humans.
Quickly Angel made the corner under the end table in the living room her own safe spot and she enjoys snoozing there throughout the day.
Angel gets along great with the other small dogs in her foster home and has learned from her foster sister that the best place to watch the neighborhood activity is from the back of the couch that’s up against the big picture window of the living room.
Angel seems to be potty pad trained yet she’s had some accidents in her foster home so her adoptive home will need to be patient with her and work on her routine. So far she is also quite the picky eater and we suspect she may have been used to eating people food in her previous home. When she gets comfortable she’s ok with being picked up but she doesn’t like strangers to pick her up.
Angel is looking for a home who will take her for plenty of walks and provide plenty of snuggles and tummy rubs but will also let her just hang out on the couch or a doggie bed.

AGE: Apx 10 Years
WEIGHT: 10lbs
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Yes

HISTORY:
Millie came from an open admission animal control facility.

ABOUT:
Gah! Talk about an awesome dog. Millie is the sweetest, happiest, little chihuahua girl there ever was. She is great with other dogs and regularly goes to doggy daycare. She is also good with the cats in her foster home. Millie does not live with children, but she is great with everyone so we think she would do fantastic in a home with children. Millie loves to be with her people, or any people for that matter, friends, neighbors, strangers - Millie wants to meet them all! This girl LOVES to give kisses, so if PDA isn’t your thing, Millie might not be the dog for you. Millie is around 10 years old, but still has quite a bit of pep in her step and loves to play and socialize, until she’s tired...then she loves to nap like a proper senior lady. Millie is generally a quiet girl, unless it is a meal time, then she uses all her verbal skills to communicate her needs. Girl loves to eat. Millie is a very friendly, easy going, agreeable lady looking for her forever home!

FOSTERED IN: Oak Forest, IL 60452
AGE: Apx 7 Years (Est DOB: 2012)
WEIGHT: 32lbs
KIDS: Likely
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Unknown

HISTORY:
Maggie and her buddy Geanie came from Alabama. They had an owner who took the girls into his care from a homeless person. When that owner passed away his elderly father took the girls in and cared for them, unfortunately he had to go into an assisted living facility so the girls came to Lulu’s Locker to find their forever home together.

ABOUT:
Maggie MUST be adopted with her best buddy Geanie. Both of these girls are incredibly sweet. They are both easy going and have a low energy level. Being a little younger, Maggie will occasionally pick up a toy to play Both girls know sit...when food is involved. They are not being fostered with kids, but because they are very calm and sweet we think they would be fine with children as long as they can respect that the girls aren’t interested in running and playing. Both girls are overweight, so they might gain a little more energy as they continue to lose some of their extra pounds. They get along just fine with the resident senior dog.

FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60622
ESTIMATED DOB: 2006
COLOR/BREED: White Maltese/Bichon mix
GENDER: Male
KIDS: Unknown
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Unknown

HISTORY:
Paddy was found as a stray in Chicago around St. Patrick's Day.

ABOUT:
Paddy was found as a stray. Paddy is a laid back dude that needs time to adjust to new environments because he is blind. He is currently in a foster home with 2 adults and 3 dogs. He is fine with the other dogs, but mainly just keeps to himself. He does prefer more laid back dogs that respect his space.
Paddy is still getting use to a housebreaking routine. With being older, he does need more frequent potty breaks. He is currently wearing a belly band, but does not have accidents at night when sleeping. He is not crate trained, but has his own area in the house when he is left alone.
He is very good on walks, and is fine being in public. His two favorite activities are to snuggle on your lap, and lounge in the sun. He likes baths and loves to help assist in the kitchen when meals are being made. Paddy does get his exercise by zooming around at night for a few minutes, and also gets happy feet when he hears his foster parents’ voices.
Paddy will do best in a quiet household that is patient with his potty habits, and mindful of the surroundings since he cannot see.

FOSTERED IN: Palatine, IL
AGE: 10 years
COLOR/BREED: Tan, Chihuahua
GENDER: Male
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Yes (small dogs)
CATS: Possibly

HISTORY: 
Canelo was rescued from a Chicago shelter.

ABOUT: 
Canelo is 10 years young. When he first went to his foster home, he did not know the joy of snuggling on the couch. That all changed soon! He is a paws up, binge TV watcher with his favorite person. He does have a few stuffies that he drags around, but not really into toys. He prefers small dogs. He has not done well with big dogs. He lives with older children and has met a younger child and did well.
He does stay in his crate at night and when his foster mom goes out. He does have accidents so someone who is home more to let him out would be ideal.
His favorite thing to do (besides be with his human) is to be outside and go for walks. He is even great about going outside to potty in any type of weather, true Illinois dog!
He would love a home where he could spend a lot of his time on his person’s lap being petted. He is a loyal and loving companion. He doesn’t even mind being carried like a baby once he knows you!

HISTORY:

ABOUT:

He was dropped off at a vet and we were so happy to take him in. His foster mom describes him as a lovebug, sweetheart, and fine around other dogs. This old man would just love a cozy dog bed he can curl up on to live out the rest of his years.

FOSTERED IN: Kankakee, IL 60901
AGE: 13 Years (Est DOB: 2005)
WEIGHT: 10lbs
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Likely

HISTORY:
King’s owner had been keeping him in their apartment for many many years. The landlord did a surprise visit and realized they had a dog and forced the family to surrender him to a shelter immediately.

ABOUT:
Despite being blind King is an adventurous guy! When he is introduced to a new space the first thing he wants to do is walk around and investigate. King loves to cuddle and snuggle while in the house, but when he is outside he insists on being set down so that he can walk around and explore the world, he has no fear! King does bark when he can’t find anyone but if you call out to him he will quiet up and use his radar-like skills to come find you. He is being fostered with multiple other dogs and he gets along great with everyone and loves to be in the middle of the action. His foster home feels that he would probably do just as well with cats. King lives with a 13 year old boy and they get along great. He would probably do best in a home with someone who is home often, or has other friendly, social pets who can stay with him while the people are gone. King has one silly/peculiar behavior: He loves to sleep with JUST his head covered by a blanket! King’s foster mom used the following words to describe him: Sweet, Gentle, Nuzzly, Cuddly, Adventurous.
Being 13 years old, King has a few medical conditions that potential adopters should know about. He is currently on the heart medications: Vetmedin, Furosemide, and Enapril, but he is receiving a low dose so this could be increased as time goes on if needed. His vet suggested that 1 year would be the very low end of his prognosis, but she often sees dogs live up to 3 years with his condition. We estimate his monthly medications to be around $80. His general blood work is great for a dog his age and he is still very active. King’s foster mom is doing a fantastic job with him and is doing a great job managing his health and is even personally sponsoring his medications and vet visits, but she would love to share the happiness his joy extrudes with a forever home of his own. King is looking for an adopter who wants a great, happy, glass-half-full companion, but who has the financial stability to cover his monthly medications. His foster home is willing to transport King for meet and greets, so you will not be required to visit him in Kankakee.
