Coco - Wyanet, IL
This snuggle bug is Coco. Coco is an approximately 10 yr old, 11 lb, neutered male Chihuahua cross.
Coco was found as a stray by a large Northern Illinois Animal control. We pulled him into our rescue and safety and had him fully evaluated by our veterinarian. He is good with most other dogs, cats, and liked my kids but they are very dog savvy after having over 800 in their short lives in our home.
Coco is a silly older gent with a stage 4 heart murmur. He is on medication and doing great, but due to his age and health status has not had any interest and has been in our rescue for 14 months now. We feel he would love to be in a forever hospice home. Lets find Coco his forever home where he can nap under blankets as much as he wants!!
Soulman - Crete, IL
This sweet boy is Soul Man. Soul Man is an 8 yr old, 70 lb neutered male Bully mix.
Soul Man truly is a sweet old soul who just wants someone to hang out with. He loves a neck or belly rub, getting brushed, and getting his head scratched. He is very gentle and sweet, but needs time to warm up to strangers. He will let out a low growl when someone comes in the house, but if ignored he will come around once he’s confirmed everybody is ok.
He is house trained, and will let you know when he needs to go outside. He knows sit, down and will give paw when he's in the mood or if the treat is worth his while…:-) Soul man is very afraid of thunderstorms. He will visibly shake, but will be ok if he is near his human, especially if you wrap him in his favorite blankie and hold him tight. He has low to medium energy, likes to go for short walks, and only pulls when there is something he really wants to see. He is incredibly loyal to his human, and is just the sweetest boy in the world. Soul Man is pretty low maintenance—as long as you love him.
Soul Man would do best in a home where he's the only dog with no kids - he would be PERFECT for a physically-capable senior human who lives alone and wants companionship and to feel a little safe!! He is a wonderful companion!!
