Posted Breed: Beagle / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Hi, my name is Rocky and I'm about 15 months old. I was adopted from BCHS when I was 3 months old in December 2016. I was returned in November 2017 to BCHS because I was experiencing a lot of anxiety in the home causing me to act out. I lack confidence and need obedience training. Since I was returned I have been living in a foster home with 2 adults and 3 other dogs. I am a very loving and affectionate dog. Many of the behavior problems the previous adopter described have not appeared in my foster home. I get along with the other dogs in the household, but I prefer the female. I will share toys, but I get vocal when the other dogs take a toy I want. I walk nice on leash with the other 3 dogs. I am learning basic obedience commands. I already knew "Sit" but I am working on more commands like "Come" "Give" "Leave It" and others. I am crate trained and house trained. I ring bells hanging on the door to alert someone I need to go outside. I need regular exercise to give me an outlet for my energy. I am apprehensive with strangers. As long as they ignore me I'm OK. If they approach me I am threatened. I would do best in a home with another sociable dog, preferably female. My ideal home should provide me with low stress and light traffic. If there are children in the home they should be older and considerate. I am neutered, UTD on vaccinations, heartworm tested, treated for internal and external parasites and microchipped. My adoption fee is $150.00. If you are interested in making me a member of your family please complete an Adoption Profile in person or on-line at www.bondcohs.petfinder.com. Email the completed profile to the address provided. A copy of our policy regarding warranties, refunds and returns is available upon request.

More About Jack-A-Bee Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Pointer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is Shiloh and I'm about 3 years old. I was rescued by Bond County Humane Society from Bond County Animal Control. I was found along with my 5 puppies in a cardboard box when my puppies were about 1 week old. I took care of my puppies so they could find loving homes and now it's my turn to find a loving home. I am currently living in a foster home with 2 adults, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I definitely bond with females. I follow my foster mom everywhere she goes. I am very timid, shy and frightened around males. I am not as frightened of children. When my foster mom is gone I will allow my foster dad to take me outside and for walks. When my foster mom is home I only want her to do things for me. My foster dad uses the other dogs to encourage me to come to him. I like to go for walks and play time with the dogs and cats in my foster family. I am not a vocal dog. My ideal family will not have any small children and will have a fenced yard. It would be helpful if my new family knew training methods and would work with me to become more socialized with men and children. Having another dog in the house would be helpful. I am crate trained and house trained. I am available for immediate adoption, but I will need to be introduced gradually into a new home. I am spayed, UTD on vaccinations, heartworm tested, treated for internal and external parasites and microchipped. My adoption fee is $150.00. If you are interested in making me a member of your family please complete an Adoption Profile in person or on-line at www.bondcohs.petfinder.com. Email the completed profile to the address provided.

      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is Spanky and I'm about 18 months old. I was rescued by Bond County Humane Society from a high kill facility. I was surrendered to the facility by my owner because she was moving and could not take me with her. I lived with adults and two young children. I did ok with the children as long as they did not torment me. The 1 year old would sometimes irritate me when she jumped on my head. My favorite toy is a tennis ball. I love to play fetch and I will give up the ball for a treat. I get along with other dogs. I am bossy when I play with the other dogs so my play pals can't be bossy too. I know "Sit" and "Down" and "Stay". I walk nice on leash with the help of a Gentle Leader. My ideal home will have a fenced yard. I am available for immediate adoption. I am neutered, UTD on vaccinations, heartworm tested, treated for internal and external parasites and microchipped. My adoption fee is $150.00.

      Breed: Beagle
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Hi, my name is Ellie and I'm about 8 years old. I was rescued by Bond County Humane Society from a high kill shelter in Southern Illinois. When I was transferred to BCHS it was thought that I was pregnant and going to deliver at any time. After 3 weeks x-rays were taken to only find out I was not pregnant. My diagnosis is called atypical Cushings Disease. That means I have the symptoms, but I don't have Cushings so I am not a candidate to take the medication prescribed for Cushings. I am on a treatment plan of Flaxseed oil, Melatonin and Fish Oil. After 3 weeks my coat is returning and I don't pant as bad as I did. I still act like I am ravenous and drink a lot of water. An ultrasound has been done. The findings showed my liver and spleen are enlarged and I am older than originally thought. The vet has diagnosed me with adrenal abnormality. This can be caused by a tumor, but surgery for this condition is not recommended because of high incidence of post operative complications and high percentage of deaths during surgery. Since my arrival I have lost 5 pounds because of daily exercise and recommended food portions which has improved my overall appearance. My original urinary problems and skin infection have been resolved with antibiotics. I will always have a distended stomach because of my condition. I will be on my current treatment plan for life. I love to be with people. I am indifferent to other dogs. I don't really play with toys or other dogs. I like to roll in the grass and and have my belly rubbed. I am good with all dogs, small or large. I am very easy going. I will "Sit" for a treat. I love to go for walks and follow a scent. My ideal home will have a fenced yard. I am probably housetrained, but might need a little help at first. I am available for immediate adoption. I am spayed, UTD on vaccinations, heartworm tested, treated for internal and external parasites and microchipped. My adoption fee is $100.00.
