Meet Ty!

Hi there! I’m a super soft and sweet little pup from Tennessee. Everyone was very concerned about me because I had a rough start to life. I am very thankful to have met so many caring people that made it easy to become the sweet, playful and funny guy I am today.

I am still a little shy when I meet new people, it just takes me a bit of time to check you out. Car rides still make me nervous, but I’m working on that too. I love playing with my foster brothers and sister, other dogs help me relax easier, so I would do well in a home with furry friends that like to play!

I’m staying with a three year old boy who is sweet to me and is very fun to play with. I’m curious about the cats, but they don’t like to play so I don’t bother with them. I love playing with all my toys. I love to be cuddled and I just adore a good belly rub! I was a good boy while I got my bath and I am crate trained and haven’t had any accidents in my crate.

I am almost fully potty trained but sometimes I forget when I get busy playing. I am still a little pup so I love to chew on everything, and I am full of energy! I’m looking for great a forever home with some people who can be patient while I grow out of my timid nature. If you think I could be your sweet pup, please come meet me!

Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies.

Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a “teen” or adult dog.

Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping.

We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email for an application or additional details.
