HISTORY:
Sweet Tea was surrendered to an open intake animal control facility because one of the adult members of her home did not want to keep her.

ABOUT:
Sweet Tea has only been with us a few days, so this information is preliminary and will be updated as necessary.
What breed is Sweet Tea? Who the heck knows… Rottweiler mix? Pit Bull Mix? Min Pin Mix? Her microchip even had her listed as a Chow mix! Your guess is as good as ours.
Sweet Tea is a very sweet, very well behaved girl. She is fairly good on leash but likes to take in all the smells so she does a bit of zigging and zagging. She is generally very quiet in the house and just prefers to follow the people around and lounge in their proximity. Sweet Tea is a nice medium-low energy level. She is excited when you come home and occasionally gets a mini case of the zoomies, but overall she just prefers to “hang out.” Sweet Tea is being fostered with a nervous dog and she does an absolutely excellent job of reading him and giving him space when he asks for it. She will occasionally give him a play bow, but when he doesn’t know how to respond she just gives up and goes back to relaxing. Sweet Tea LOVES to see other dogs on walks and gets very excited. She seems to do well with both big and small dogs. If you have a playful dog, she would probably be down for some play time. She is currently being crated, and although she doesn’t eagerly go in, she doesn’t fight it either. Sweet Tea seems like she is going to be a great dog. Great house manners, great with people, great with other dogs. Based on her amount of prey drive we do not think she will be a good match for cats or small animals.

FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60647
Estimated DOB: 2017
WEIGHT: 12lbs
KIDS: No
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Unknown

HISTORY:
Papi was found as a stray.

ABOUT:
Papi is a home-olympics athlete. We guess him to be around 2 years old and he has the energy level to match. He never tires of playing fetch and will bring his ball to his foster parents and will stand and wait for minutes hoping that you will throw it. If you don’t get the hint he might whine a bit, incase you didn’t notice him or the ball in your lap. Papi’s foster mom said he has the adorable habit of going out of his way to jump over things on his way back to you with the ball. This might be less efficient, but is apparently more fun (and no more work for you)! Papi prefers his Olympic events to be held at home as he can be anxious with strangers and will bark and snarl at new people. Papi will need an adult only home as children make him very very nervous. More so when they are running and screaming. Papi gets along fantastic with his canine foster sibling, but he can be reactive on leash with other dogs outside the home. His foster sister loves having him around because Papi isn’t much into treats so she always gets to scavenge his rejected treats.
Papi has great house manners: he is housetrained and is not being crated or restricted in any way when his foster family is not home. He will mark in new environments, but this is not unusual, as he has not yet been neutered. Once he has grown comfortable with his new family he loves to follow them everywhere. His foster mom says that Papi is quite the gentleman as he escorts her to all her bathroom breaks, even in the middle of the night. Papi likes to engage in verbal dialogue with his foster mom, but he is not especially noisy when he is left home alone and is doing fine in an apartment setting.
Papi will be available for adoption after his neuter on October 22nd. Due to the behaviors related to his anxiety and insecurities with children and strangers, he will be adopted out with a training requirement as a condition of his adoption.

HISTORY:
Poncho was found in a forest preserve wearing a tiny red poncho. No one knows how long she was out there by herself.

ABOUT:
If only Poncho could tell us her story….
Poncho is currently being fostered with dogs and cats, she gets along well with the resident pets but isn’t always fond of meeting dogs on leash outside the house. We think she would adapt well to another dog in her home, but we would recommend introducing them slowly. Poncho is overall a little shy and guarded with new people, pets, and environments. She is more wary with men than she is with women. Poncho walks well on leash and loves to go for car rides. She gets unusually excited and lively after a bath. She’s very good in the house and will go outside and use potty pads. She isn’t destructive and chooses to spend most of her day curled up in her dog bed. She generally chooses to lay in her dog bed vs on the couch. Poncho is on thyroid medication.

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.

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: 
Barry is a 15 year old terrier mix. He is very independent and is happy just chilling on his bed, but greets everyone, wanting love and rubs. 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.
