Manny is a very sweet and affectionate guy. He enjoys going for walks, snuggling on the sofa and chasing the squirrels in his foster family’s backyard.

Manny gets along fine with the resident Whippet and Italian Greyhound in his foster home.

Manny is not crate trained, and appears to have crate anxiety; however, he has shown an impressive willingness to please his people and has made some progress with his crate training. For instance, Manny willingly eats all his meals in his crate and will wait quietly until he is let out (about 5 to 10 minutes). Manny also seems to do fine when being crated in a vehicle for short trips. Other than mealtimes and short trips Manny is not crated in the house and has been very respectful of his environment.

Manny would do best in a quiet home with people who are home most of the time, preferably working from home or retired.

Ralph is a beautiful shiny sleek black Whippet, who is looking for a patient and understanding adopter. At 3-4 years old, he was one of two dozen Whippets rescued from a home from an elderly owner, where he lacked basic socialization and life skills. In a foster home, Ralph prefers to feel safe in his crate. He has been fostered in a home with multiple out-going resident female whippets and a 4-month-old Dalmatian puppy who he very much enjoys playing with! His adopter will need to be patient and go slowly with him and have realistic expectations. Ralphie trusts the people giving him food, water, and shelter, but he doesn’t understand the benefits of petting, toys, cuddling. Outside, he is efficient about doing his business, and is starting to show signs of running and enjoying the yard. For his security, he’d benefit from a 5-foot fence, but he can also potty on leash. If spooked, he can hide in a tight spot and not understand why he should come out, so at this time his fosters keep him on a long leash-line while in the fenced yard to be extra safe. We truly feel he would benefit from having another dog-preferably a female to help show him the ropes. He has no history with kids and don’t think he’d appreciate the unpredictability and noise of children. He definitely would not be a candidate for a home with a cat. He also does great for a bath and having his toenails dremelled. Ralph is sensitive, and a quiet home and neighborhood will help him relax and feel safe. He has a very sweet and gentle temperament. If you are looking for a quiet roommate who keeps to himself, please consider taking baby steps with Ralph.

Please note at this time we are only considering homes that are no more than four hours from the Chicagoland area.
