Homeless animals are used to the very worst that is hopefully followed up with the very best. Today seven Animal Rescue Foundation, Illinois dogs braved the heat and humidity in search of their happy ending.
The dogs varied in breed, size and age but all had one common goal, to find their forever home. A combination of two dog-wizened organizations whose claim to fame is the very reason for the event was there to lend a helping hand/paw.
Two Bostons situated at 103 West Jefferson Street hosted the adoption event for the dogs of Animal Rescue Foundation. The Two Bostons employees were fantastically helpful and welcoming and completely interested in the dogs brought to be adopted. Volunteers from ARF-IL gathered in front of the popular Downtown dog boutique establishment; the dogs strutted their stuff (or lounged in the shade) in hopes of being discovered while the volunteers answered questions and greeted the public interested in meeting their foster dogs.
Brody, Schnoodle is only seven months old but wins hearts as though he has done so for many years. This sweet gray puppy is so loving and has absolutely no qualms about showing you that he loves you; his puppy kisses are sweet as can be! He will not be around long so if you are interested, you better check him out very soon!
Ward, Terrier/Miniature Pinscher Mix was one of 56 animals rescued from a hoarding case in Indiana. Since coming to be a rescue of ARF, Ward has come a long way. This young 10 pound dog is as cute as can be with his beautiful majestic red; his eyes a wizened gold and green. He is respectful and listens intently when people around him talk to him. While he used to cower in fear, Ward now advances to be petted. He feels completely comfortable with the other dogs at events. He is shy about receiving treats, but sincerely grateful. He had minimal socialization and an aversion to human touch but now is becoming much more comfortable and simply needs a loving forever home where he can grow into the best family dog you have ever met.
Radar, Dachshund/Terrier Mix is just a puppy, cute and cuddly as can be. He came from kill shelter in April. Radar loves everyone and has not problems showing and telling how he feels. His love for life is apparent and he is willing to teach his new family how to love life as much as he does!
Jada, Rottweiler is seven-years-old and pure-bred. She is a fantastic, happy, friendly and calm lady but does love her playtime. She loves kids, cats and other dogs and knows the meaning of family. She just wants an opportunity to have her final forever home. She would be the perfect family pet!
Milo, Chihuahua/Rat Terrier Mix is just a young pup but already super-duper sweet. He is a tiny little guy, only about five pounds but has a ton of love to give. In his short life, Milo has had to deal with the frightening aspect of being given to a downstate municipal high kill shelter and had spent his entire life in a kennel with very little or no stimulation or interaction with either humans or other animals other than his brother so when he arrived he had not ability to tolerate human touch, but now he meets and greets with the best of them; learning that people can be kind and good. He is ready for his forever family to teach him all that he really wants to know.
Jozie, Labrador Mix is about two. She is shy and timid towards men but doing much better thanks to her foster family. She has had to work through the fact that she has never really had a home of her own but totally desires a forever home of her very own. Once you meet this sweet dog you will fall in love instantly!
A new member whose name I was unable to receive and was just acquired last weekend stole the hearts of all who met them. The little guy was at the event for just a couple of hours but made a world of impact. His data will appear soon on the website. Stay tuned for you will be glad you did!
Hopefully you were one of the people that stopped by Two Bostons to meet ARF-IL dogs today. If you were unable to be there, make sure to check their website to see who is new and updates on the rest. Hug a dog today.
