Pal's Place

Hugh, our resident cool dude, is currently accepting applications for his forever home. This guy is an absolute gem, and we encourage anyone looking for a practically perfect dog to submit their application today! Hugh found his way to Pal's Place from an overburdened animal control facility in Kentucky. His breed and past are unknown but we suspect he's a combination of many breeds, a true super mutt! Cur, Shepherd, Boxer, Lab, Shar-Pei, and more all possible ancestors in his lineage. His exact age is also a mystery; there's some mileage on him, as evidenced by his distinguished gray beard and a wiseness in his demeanor and eyes usually reserved for dogs that have been around for several years. At the same time, he is still playful and spry without being hyper or wild and maintains a bit of a mischievous twinkle in his eye. Our best estimate for age is somewhere between 7-9 years. Hugh is the kind of dog we think will fit in most households easily and will make a great companion for a family looking for a dog that is still active, playful, and fun-loving but one that is past the puppy shenanigans, has some training, and also knows when and how to hang out and relax. An added bonus to his stellar personality is his size; just under 50 pounds; he's a medium-sized pooch, ideal for urban dwellings. Hugh is a confident, friendly dog who loves people and greets everyone with a smile on his face and abundant tail wags. He's got great house manners as well. Quiet, housebroken, crate-trained, not destructive or anxious when alone, walks nicely on leash, friendly with other dogs. What more could you possibly want in a dog?! You've probably noticed the cloudiness in his eyes and may be thinking of cataracts, but most clouding is scarring from ulcers left untreated until Hugh found his way to us. A veterinary ophthalmologist in Chicago diagnosed Hugh with indolent ulcers in both eyes, and they suspected he had been dealing with them for many months without treatment, causing some damage and scarring to the lenses of his eyes. He had a dremel debridement procedure when he first came to the rescue and completed a month-long course of eye medications to facilitate the healing of the ulcers. The ophthalmologist also noted nuclear sclerosis in both eyes, which is clouding or haziness often seen in the eyes of middle-aged to senior dogs resulting from the normal aging processes of the eye. A small insipient cataract was diagnosed in his right eye in the lower corner. Despite these three different diagnoses, the doctor was confident that his vision had not been impacted in a significant way and did not expect any progression to cause a significant loss of vision later in life. Hugh's behavior also shows no signs of vision impairment, but despite the ulcers now being healed, the scars will remain, and his eyes will always appear very cloudy. Hugh was recently neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested (negative) and microchipped. With his clean bill of health, he's ready for his next chapter: a forever home of his own!

Hugh's adoption fee to the rescue is $375. He is in a foster home on Chicago's north side and can be seen by appointment only after an application has been received and approved.

Pal's Place

Pal's Place would love to introduce you to Kiani (pronounced Key-On-E), an absolutely gorgeous female sable German Shepherd. Pal's Place rescued this stunning girl from an overburdened animal control facility in Kentucky in December 2020 when she was approximately 8-10 months old. She was quickly adopted; however, she returned for placement after a year when her adopter felt they could no longer care for her after adding a young puppy to the home. Kiani was adopted out again shortly after her return. Unfortunately, her second adoption also resulted in her recently being returned to Pal's Place for placement when her adopter suffered major life changes, and they no longer had the time to care for Kiani properly. This beautiful girl has been failed time and time again by humans through no fault of her own, and she deserves a truly forever, forever home. We are absolutely determined that her next placement will be her last, so we will be very specific in the type of home we seek for her. Please read her entire bio before applying to adopt. Lovely Kiani is estimated to be around 3.5 years of age and weighs 70 pounds. Key is an exceptional German Shepherd in all aspects. She is highly energetic, intelligent, and busy! She is profoundly sweet, eager to please, and loyal. We cannot say for sure since her past is unknown, but her appearance, characteristics, and coloring suggest she is a working-line German Shepherd. She has much more energy, focus, intensity, and drive than the average GSD. Because of this, we feel she will do best with guardians who are experienced in training, handling, and living with working German Shepherds, Malinois, Dutch Shepherds, or similar breeds. Kiani embodies all of the best traits of the breed and is a Shepherd lover and appreciator's dream dog! She's approachable, balanced, and friendly while maintaining, watchful, devoted, protective, and loyal nature for which shepherds are prized.
Confident and bold without being dominant or pushy; protective and alert without being aggressive. Kiani is no couch potato and will not be happy with long runs/walks or playing ball a few times a week. We are not exaggerating when saying she could practically run a marathon every day without tiring out or that she will repeatedly drop her ball at your feet for hours, asking you to engage in a game of fetch with her. Her toy drive/focus is very high and is her main motivator, but she will also become obsessive about chasing water (ie, spray from hoses, waves) Kiani will need a job to do and several hours of vigorous exercise a day along with plenty of mental stimulation to channel her energy into something productive. Her second adopter was a dog trainer at a large boarding/training facility, and Kiani was their demo dog. She is very well-trained and knows all her basics and then some! We feel she'd be a fantastic companion for guardians looking to participate or train in canine sports for fun or competition. Kiani will excel in almost any dog sport, such as agility, dock diving, herding, search and rescue, tracking, flyball, etc. Kiani is being fostered with several other dogs and gets along well with her foster housemates, but no cats for this gal. She is housebroken, crate-trained, and well-behaved in the home. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and successfully treated (in 2022) for a heartworm infection she returned with from her first adoption. Don't hesitate to contact us today if you can provide Kiani with all she needs to thrive! With the proper guardians and environment, she will be a once-in-lifetime dog! She is ready for her happily ever after.

I will share with our dog training facility — she sounds like a special girl who will make the right special person who wants a working dog so happy!

Is Kiani still available?

Hi! We’d love to see if we are a good fit for Kiani. Dino Beslagic and I have emailed our application on Sunday. Thanks!

Hello! Sent in adoption papers! We have a wonderful situation here with our family for Kiani!

Pal's Place

Our delightful and adorable Ms.Mac-a-doodle-do, or simply Mac to her friends, is searching for a forever family. Sweet Mac (FKA Maple) was adopted from Pal's Place when she was just a wee lass of 10 weeks (D.O.B Jan 2021). Pal's Place rescued Mac and her six littermates from an animal control facility in Kentucky. Mac just turned 3 years old in January and weighs 35 pounds. A DNA test of a littermate revealed a breed mix of half Boxer with an assortment of terrier breeds (including Boston and Jack) comprising the other half, all combining perfectly to create the wonderful girl we today know as Mac. She has been very well-loved and cared for her entire life; however, her previous adopter suffered from health issues that unfortunately left them unable to care for Mac any longer. Lovingly and tearfully, she was surrendered back to Pal's Place for placement with another family.
Mac is a small pooch with a big personality! She has inherited many traits from her Boxer ancestry and is energetic, playful, comical, and clownish. She can be a bit bashful in new environments and when meeting new people but she warms up quickly and it does not take long before her upbeat, cheerful, and slightly cheeky demeanor shines through. As serious as Mac is about having a good time and playing, she is equally serious about cuddling, snuggling, and loving her humans. A social dog, she thrives in the company of others. She loves the canine friends in her foster home and was raised with cats. Her previous adopter did note that Mac was never aggressive with the cats, she was always trying to engage them in play, much the annoyance of the senior cats in the home. Because of this, we feel she'd be best suited to a home with dog-savvy, confident cats. Mac is well-behaved in the home, crate-trained, and housebroken. Mac is prone to producing urinary crystals, a fairly common condition, especially among many terrier breeds. Her condition is easily managed with a prescription diet of urinary S/O food, which is comparable in cost to other premium dog foods. She is also spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and ready for a family!
Mac is in a foster home on Chicago's northwest side and can be visited by appointment only after an adoption application has been completed and approved. Her adoption fee to the rescue is $375. This fee helps to cover the costs of caring for the rescued dogs of Pal's Place. Unfortunately, we cannot place holds on our dogs for any reason. Please do not submit an adoption application unless you are ready to meet and welcome a dog into your home within three days of applying.

The black dog with Mac looks so much like Odin.

We have one of the M puppies (Mac/Maple’s brother). Wonderful demeanor and personality. If she’s anything g like her brother, she’d be a wonderful addition to your family. I wish we could adopt her but we just adopted a second dog last year.

Pal's Place

**JACKSON HAS BEEN ADOPTED!** Jackson is a charming, friendly, distinguished, and regal senior gentleman looking for a loving home! Pal's Place rescued this handsome, mature pooch from an overburdened animal control facility in rural Kentucky. He is estimated to be between 7 and 10 years of age and is a thin 60 pounds. He's working towards a more ideal weight of 70-75 pounds. Jackson's breed is unknown, but based on appearance and characteristics, we suspect he is mostly Boxer, possibly with Bullmastiff or another similar breed down the line in his family tree. Animal control facilities are stressful environments for any animal, but we know it's especially tough on seniors. We spotted Jackson's sweet, wise, gray muzzle at the shelter and knew he belonged in our foster program. He was an unclaimed stray, so his background is unknown, but judging from his condition upon intake, his previous life was a challenging one. Most of his teeth are ground down or broken, a condition we commonly see in dogs chained or confined for long periods. They will chew on their chains or kennels out of boredom, anxiety, or in an effort to free themselves. He had multiple open sores on his legs and feet, was malnourished, and was infested with fleas. Despite a rough past, resilient, forgiving, wonderful Jackson remains a friendly, loving, and highly affectionate guy. Although a senior, he is still quite spry, has a lot of pep in his step, loves toys, and retains an adorable puppy-like playfulness and sense of humor! He is very curious, loves to explore and go for walks, and is happy to be included in any activity his humans engage in. Jackson still has a lot of love to give, and we'd be so thrilled to find him the home of his dreams to spend his golden years in. A home that can make up for all the love, care, and comfort he missed out on prior to his rescue. Jackson has adjusted very well to the pampered pet life in his foster home. He is well-behaved in the home, crate-trained, and housebroken. He shares his foster home with five other dogs and gets along well with all his new companions.
Jackson was recently neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested (negative). He also had bloodwork completed and is a healthy senior pooch. Like many older, larger dogs, he is showing signs of some arthritis and can be a little stiff when he gets up from a long nap. Joint supplements such as glucosamine or fish oil are recommended to help with occasional muscle and joint stiffness. If you have room in your home and heart for this wonderful old man, we guarantee Jackson will repay you with loyal and unconditional love and appreciation!

Jackson is vaccinated, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm tested. His adoption fee to the rescue is $275. Jax is in a foster home and can be seen by appointment only after an application has been received and approved.

He is well-behaved in the home, crate-trained, and housebroken. He shares his foster home with five other dogs and gets along well with all his new companions. 
Jackson was recently neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested (negative). He also had bloodwork completed and is a healthy senior pooch. Like many older, larger dogs, he is showing signs of some arthritis and can be a little stiff when he gets up from a long nap. Joint supplements such as glucosamine or fish oil are recommended to help with occasional muscle and joint stiffness. If you have room in your home and heart for this wonderful old man, we guarantee Jackson will repay you with loyal and unconditional love and appreciation!  

Jackson is vaccinated, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm tested. His adoption fee to the rescue is $275. Jax is in a foster home and can be seen by appointment only after an application has been received and approved.

**MARIGOLD HAS BEEN ADOPTED!** Sweet, shy, gentle Marigold is searching for a forever family. This beautiful girl is quite unique looking, and our best guess of her breed mix is Shar-Pei and Cocker Spaniel. Her age is estimated to be around 2 years, and she weighs 35 pounds, a great medium size! Pal's Place rescued Miss Mari from an overburdened, overcrowded, and overwhelmed animal control facility in Kentucky. She ended up in the shelter with her litter of newborn pups when her previous guardian could no longer care for them. Animal control facilities are loud, chaotic, and stressful environments for any animal, but even more so for a new mom with pups. Marigold did her best to take care of her new family. However, the stressful environment quickly took its toll on her very vulnerable newborns, and all but one puppy passed away shortly after their arrival. After losing all but one of her puppies, tender and timid, Marigold withdrew even further and spent much of her time huddled in the rear of her kennel. After hearing this sweet girl's plight, we offered to take her into our foster program at Pal's Place and offer her some much-needed love and TLC. Marigold has been in foster care for a few weeks and is thriving! Seeing this shut-down, defeated, scared pup blossom into a happy, silly, affectionate dog has been incredibly rewarding. Marigold is still very timid when meeting new people and unsure in new environments, but she gets more confident every day. Once comfortable, she showers her humans with an abundance of love and affection. She is being fostered with other dogs and gets along well with her canine foster siblings. Mari is crate-trained and does very well with her housebreaking when taken out regularly. Her ideal home is with patient and understanding guardians who can give her all the time she needs to adjust to a new home, continue confidence building, and provide plenty of love and attention. We guarantee it will be repaid tenfold! You may notice a squint and tearing in some of her pictures around her eyes. Shortly after her rescue, Marigold was diagnosed with entropion, a painful and irritating condition where the eyelashes grow inwards towards the eye, scraping the lens throughout the day. The condition was surgically corrected when she was spayed, and no further care is necessary. She is now enjoying pain-free eyes for the first time in her life! She is also fully vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested (negative), and ready to go to her forever home! Marigold's adoption fee to the rescue is $375. She is in a foster home on Chicago's north side and can be seen by appointment only after an application has been submitted and approved. Marigold is anxious to meet her new family; apply today if you think she is the dog for you!

**OBIE HAS BEEN ADOPTED!**Pal's Place would love to introduce you to Obie, an extraordinary, resilient, friendly, and happy dog looking for a family as remarkable as he is. Lovable Obie is estimated to be around 7 years of age, weighs in around 30 pounds, and appears to be a Beagle/Terrier mix. Just one month ago (January 2nd), this precious fella's entire world turned upside down, and his recovery has been remarkable and inspiring. Obie was hit by a car and suffered catastrophic injuries to both of his eyes. His eyes were damaged beyond repair, and his only option for a comfortable, pain-free life was the complete removal of both eyes. At seven years of age, Obie suddenly found himself having to learn a new way of navigating and interacting with the world around him. When an older dog becomes disabled in any way, especially very suddenly, there is always a concern they may never fully adjust or lose much of their quality of life. Well, it did not take long for us to see that Obie was not going to let his new disability define him or even slow him down much at all! He has adapted remarkably well, and despite the trauma, his chipper, sunny, and friendly disposition remains intact. He learned the layout of his foster home in less than two days and mastered the stairs in the home within a week. He just needs a little patience and encouragement when introduced to new environments, but he's very inquisitive and always eager to learn and explore. Once he is familiar with an environment, you'd never know he was blind! He loves to wrestle and play with his canine foster siblings, gets up and down familiar stairs on his own, and can even jump over a small baby gate. There is not much a sighted dog can do that a blind dog cannot!
Obie loves meeting new people and pups and is a social butterfly. In Obie's world, everyone is greeted as a long-lost friend! Anyone lucky enough to cross paths with Obie can expect a bright, enthusiastic smile, plentiful tail wags, and a generous number of licks and kisses. He is a professional cuddler who thrives on human affection and attention. Obie truly is a joy to be around and his zest for life and cheerful personality is contagious. He will be an outstanding, loyal, companion for one very lucky family.

Flounder is quite possibly the cutest little itty bitty pocket pittie mix we've ever seen. His diminutive stature, large expressive eyes, heart-shaped nose, and domed head framed by little triangular ears combined with a snaggle-toothed underbite make this pint-sized pooch cute beyond comprehension. Pal's Place took one look at this guy at an overcrowded animal control facility in Kentucky and knew instantly we had to bring him into our foster program. Flounder made his way to animal control as a stray and was never claimed, so his background is unknown, but he is 30 pounds and estimated to be around 2 years old. Breed is also unknown, but he is almost certainly a mix of Terriers. Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Boston Terrier, and Pit Bull are guessed to be in his family tree. He's currently enjoying the love and attention of a devoted foster home in Chicago, but he'd love a home of his own soon. Flounder can be a bit bashful and demure when meeting new people and in new environments, but he does not take long to warm up. Given some gentle pats and kind words, within a few minutes, he's your best friend. After just a day or two in his foster home, he started to open up and show off his endearing and adorable personality. He loves to follow his people around the house in an adorable prance, curious and attentive to whatever activities his guardians are doing without being in the way or overbearing. When very excited, his prance turns into a tippy tap dance, usually paired with a giant grin on his face, making it nearly impossible not to love him. Flounder loves affection and is an expert snuggler. He likes walks around the neighborhood and enjoys a good romp in the yard but leans towards being a more mellow dude and is also pretty content just hanging out with his people most of the day. He is being fostered with other dogs and gets along well with everyone, but like most terriers, at times, he can be a little pushy with them and likes to be the boss, so a more submissive, laid-back dog will be most compatible with him. Flounder is quiet and well-behaved in the home, making him suitable for an apartment or condo dwelling. He's crate trained and does very well with his housebreaking when kept on a regular schedule. It doesn't seem like he's had much if any, training in the past and does not know any commands, so potential adopters should be prepared to teach him the basics. He's very eager to please, observant, and attentive, so we are confident he'll learn quickly. Sweet, sensitive Flounder is ready for his forever home. Come and meet him today!

Supporters and followers, we need help. The animal rescue world has been in crisis for more than a year now; shelters and rescues across the country and beyond full. Some open intake shelters and animal control facilities in higher-intake areas are having to put 10-20 healthy and very adoptable dogs, puppies, cats and kittens to sleep A DAY simply because there is no more room for all the animals coming in. This is the worst we've seen in it in 20 years of being involved in rescue work. Adoptions have slowed to a trickle, and most shelters and rescues have seen an alarming uptick in returns. We have several dogs in foster homes waiting or recovering from major medical procedures or undergoing training before they will be ready for our adoption, leaving our regular, dedicated foster families filled at the moment. We are getting multiple daily pleas for help from animal control facilities trying to save healthy, friendly, adotable dogs from being euthanized for space. We want so badly to help but cannot help any more dogs until we have more foster homes. We desperately need new fosters and adopters. Fostering for Pal's Place is free! We provide all necessary supplies and vet care at one of partner clinics during the foster period and foster families provide a safe and loving environment until the dog is adopted. If you are outside of our foster area (Chicago and surrounding suburbs) but are interested in fostering PLEASE reach out to your local shelter or rescue to foster. Everyone needs help right now! For more information about fostering or other ways to help please email Samantha@PalsPlaceRescue.org ... See MoreSee Less

Connor, our gentle, mild-mannered, sociable, and cuddly Teddy Bear of a dog, is looking forward to celebrating a new year in a home with his very own family. Could it be yours? Sweet Connor was rescued from an overburdened animal control facility in rural Kentucky, where he was found as a stray with another dog presumed to be a littermate. His kind, expressive puppy dog eyes drew us in, and we knew we had to bring him into our foster program in Chicago. Since he was a stray, his background is unknown but he is estimated to be between 1.5-2 years of age and weighs 75 pounds. His breed mix is also a mystery, but given his appearance and characteristics, we suspect Great Pyrenees, American Bulldog, and possibly Retriever can be found somewhere in his family tree. He is most likely a mix of multiple breeds, a true super mutt! Do not let the seemingly sad/pensive expression this guy sports in some of his photos fool you; he is a cheerful, happy, and very social boy who we feel will fit in readily with most households. He loves meeting new people and is also a big fan of other dogs and loves to wrestle, play, and snuggle with his canine foster siblings. He is a little too interested in cats and would do best in a feline-free home. While he is a playful young dog with energetic moments, he is a mellow guy overall. He's happy to go for long walks or visit the dog park with you, but he also knows when to relax and hang out and is content with moderate daily exercise. Connor is crate-trained and does very well with his housebreaking when kept on a regular schedule. He doesn't appear to know any commands (sit, stay, etc), but he is attentive and eager to please, so teaching him the basics should be a breeze. Connor is a big, squishy, huggable marshmallow of a dog who will make one lucky household very happy!

Do not let the seemingly sad/pensive expression this guy sports in some of his photos fool you; he is a cheerful, happy, and very social boy who we feel will fit in readily with most households. He loves meeting new people and is also a big fan of other dogs and loves to wrestle, play, and snuggle with his canine foster siblings. He is a little too interested in cats and would do best in a feline-free home. While he is a playful young dog with energetic moments, he is a mellow guy overall. Hes happy to go for long walks or visit the dog park with you, but he also knows when to relax and hang out and is content with moderate daily exercise. Connor is crate-trained and does very well with his housebreaking when kept on a regular schedule. He doesnt appear to know any commands (sit, stay, etc), but he is attentive and eager to please, so teaching him the basics should be a breeze. Connor is a big, squishy, huggable marshmallow of a dog who will make one lucky household very happy! 
Connor is vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered. His adoption fee to the rescue is $375.

Pal's Place

Our tall, dark, and exceptionally handsome boy, Bo, dreams of his forever home. Could it be yours? Bo is 1.5 years old and weighs close to 100 pounds. He's still young, with a bit of growing and filling out yet, and we expect a fully mature size of 110-120 pounds. Bo was rescued from an overburdened animal control facility in Kentucky with his eight littermates when they were just two months old. A littermate's DNA test revealed a little over 50% of their mix to be made up of several hound breeds (Coonhound, Bloodhound, Foxhound, and Beagle), 30% Rottweiler, and 10% Labrador. Baby Bo was adopted by a family when he was three months old. However, he has recently been returned to Pal's Place for placement with another family. Bo is a sensitive and timid pup who takes a little time to warm up to new people. He was raised with very young children he adored and was fantastic with. However, his previous household was bustling, and many children and new people were always coming and going. Bo was anxious and nervous with all the visitors in the home, and his previous family reported he'd be worked up and bark at unfamiliar visitors for extended periods. He is a very large dog with a loud, intimidating bark, and the resident children's friends and parents were frightened by him. Unfortunately, the decision was made to return Bo to the rescue to prevent further tensions with guests.
Bo has been back with us for several weeks now, and his foster parents have started working on developing Bo's confidence with new people, and he has already made great progress. In his foster home, we have found that he is initially hesitant and scared of new people entering the home but warms up within minutes. His ideal guardians are calm, confident, patient, and experienced in working with large breeds. He's a loyal, perceptive, devoted, and amenable dog to those he loves and trusts, and he wants so badly to please that we are confident with the right guardians, he will blossom into the confident dog we know he wants to be! He's always lived with at least one other dog and is sharing his foster home with multiple dogs. Bo is much more confident meeting new people in the presence of other dogs, and we think he'd do best in a home with at least one other confident, social dog to show him the ropes. He does well with all the dogs in his foster home, but a larger, younger dog who can handle his size and play style will best match his forever home. Being a mix of hunting and working breeds, Bo also needs a home committed to properly exercising him and providing an outlet for his instincts. He'd make a great hiking or running companion and a great candidate for many dog sports, like tracking, nose work, or earth dog trials. Training for these sports, for fun or competitively, would be a great way to grow Bo's confidence and bond with new guardians. He's well-behaved in the home, crate trained, housebroken, and already has some basic obedience training under his belt. He's generally pretty mellow in the home but still is young with bursts of excitability and energy. While he was raised with small children and did excellent with them, he can still be a little boisterous and mouthy when excited. His excitability and large size make him more suited to a home with older children. Like most extra large and giant dog breeds and mixes, Bo's a huge marshmallow of a dog and a colossal scardey cat, afraid of his own shadow who wants to be loved and feel safe. If you can open your home and heart to our sweet, tender, meek, and lovable big lug, Bo, and provide him with all he needs, please contact us today!
