|Rescue Me ID: 16-10-07-00140Hercule (male)|
Hercule is a beautiful Mastiff dog. We love him so much, but is unable to care for him. He was giving to me by a family member at 3 mos old. He need a family who will be active in his life. A place where he can move around such as a huge yard or home. Right now he is becoming so active. I work full time and my children are in school, so he is in a kennel during the day, which I do not like at all. But if we let him loose them I might not have a house to come home to, LOL. I WILL LIKE FOR HERCULE TO BE PUT IN A GOOD FAMILY HOME, NOT THE SHELTER, OR ANYONE WHO WILL ABUSE HIM. He deserve to be treated GOOD. Only serious dog lover!!!. Thanks so very much.

|Rescue Me ID: 16-09-04-00243Chief (male)|
If your heart is in need of some leadership, how about a new Chief? Our Chief is an extra slice of beefcake - he's 95 pounds, and each one is packed with love. Chief is a 5 year old Mastiff/Hound mix who's the definition of 'Gentle Giant'. He's a friendly, goofy, confident dog who loves butt scratches and going for walks. Despite his size, he's great on his leash and sweet through and through! Chief arrived at ACL as a stray, and sadly no one came for him. He's ready for a new home, and he's got the manners to prove it - Chief is housebroken and well-behaved. He's good with other large breed dogs, but we don't think small dogs, cats, or small animals are a good idea around such a big dog. Because of his size, Chief is approved from homes with kids 12 and up. If you'd like to meet him, email Gabrielle at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment - this big guy won't be here for long! (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-07-15-00242Simba (male)|
It's like finding a needle in a haystack, I know, but are there any dogless foster homes (hopefully with a licensed rescue) that can help Simba become the amazing canine he's meant to be? He is fixed, vaccinated, microchipped, 6 years old, housebroken, great with people of all ages, and good on a leash. He needs an experienced dogless foster/ foster family willing to put in the time, and work with him on his dog socialization skills. This poor guy has recently suffered hotspots, CIV, and has existed previously just for breeding and fighting. He previous 'owner' dumped him after five years, not microchipped, vetted, or vaccinated, and I got the owner to surrender him after seeing a post about him being given away online. Simba has received little enrichment from humans, nor positive experiences with other dogs in his life. If you saw for yourself the happiness in his eyes while he devours an ice cream cone, or plays fetch, you would know he is worth the effort, like I do (and anyone else that has had the pleasure to meet him)! Please consider opening your heart and home to Simba! Contact me if you can help. Serious inquiries only. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-07-02-00263Walter (male)|
*MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS* Are you looking for a fun-loving, playful but very affectionate 75-pound lap dog? I am Walter, and if you are looking for an extra special canine companion to share your life with, you just might hit the jackpot with me! I am a year-old tan Mastiff mix with some handsome black highlights around my face to make me extra cute. I know how lucky I am to have been saved by Fetching Tails Foundation, and I love to enjoy life now that I have been given this second chance! Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where I sat for weeks hoping to leave my cage behind for good. People passed me by because, quite frankly, my eye looked really gross. But my human angels from Fetching Tails looked at my sparkling personality instead of my bulging eye, so we left the overwhelming, loud shelter behind and I settled into my awesome foster home like I had always been there. Let's get the technical stuff out of the way: I had glaucoma in one eye and cataracts in the other. The glaucoma eye was beyond saving and extremely painful so that has been removed, and SO many really awesome people rallied behind me to raise money for me to have cataract surgery so I will be able to see again with one eye! Please don't let my eye issues dissuade you from considering me as your life buddy; I have adapted very well to my current condition and I will be even better after my sight is restored in my remaining eye. This eye stuff doesn't bother me now that I have been given the medical treatment and love I needed, so don't let it bother you! So let's instead 'focus' on the all-around awesomeness I could bring to your life, because I bring a LOT of fun to the table! ('See' what I did there? Two sight jokes in a row -- I'm a funny guy!) I'm a mischievous jokester and make my foster dad laugh all the time with my busybody antics. I love to run and play in foster dad's big backyard, so I would love to have a home with a fenced yard that I can enjoy. My favorite activity is playing chase with my big ball outside, followed closely by my second favorite activity: sneaking the ball inside to play chase with it in the living room! I like to run and play non-stop until I am so exhausted that I can fall asleep immediately on my comfy cozy dog bed. I would love an active family that will play with me and let me be the active, adventurous guy I am meant to be! I'm pretty good with my house manners, but I am basically a giant puppy with lots to learn about the world so I would love to take a few training classes with my forever family. My Fetching Tails friends always say that training is important and a good idea for all newly adopted dogs and I must say that I agree. I am potty trained (so no accidents in the house!) and have learned the command 'sit,' and I would love to learn more so I can be my best self for my forever family. I aim to please! I simply adore people and want nothing more than to make my humans happy! Plus I hear training classes are fun for humans and dogs alike, and if something is fun I want to be there in the middle of the action! So what are you waiting for? If I sound like I could be the perfect dog for you, please get in touch with my Fetching Tails friends today and say 'I want to see the world with Walter!' Love, Walter If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us! Adoption Requirements: *Be at least 21 years of age *Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household *Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) *Have a valid ID with current address *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment *Lives in 50 mile radius of Itasca within the Illinois border Adoption Fees: Senior dog - 8 years and up, $75 Adult or young dog - 6 months to 7 years, $250 Puppies - under 6 months, $350 (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-05-29-00331Mystic (female)|
Mystic is a very loving and smart Cane Corso purebred. As long as it is on her terms. She is protective and loves attention. She loves walks, and to run around. We rescued her from an unknown person who was going to dump her at the pound. She sits, stays, comes on command. House broken and leash trained. Mystic needs a home where she will be walked, or jogged with regularly. She does well with our teenage daughters but we have had her four years. A kid free home is best fit for her. She has had one incident where she nipped someone. That is the only time. She is also kennel trained. We love her so much but just don't the time right now. Please contact me with your number so we can talk. Thanks for looking. (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Mastiff in Illinois|
Mastiff Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The Old English Mastiff is a massive breed. Mastiffs are very gentle toward their families. This is an intelligent, protective breed that makes a good guard dog but is unlikely to attack unless severely provoked. Mastiffs behave well with children but should be watched with little ones because of their large size. Mastiffs need gentle training and socialization from an early age. Mastiffs can live in an apartment or a home with a small yard.
