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 the household was in upheaval and I was not doing well in the environment. I lacked confidence and needed 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. I get along with the other dogs in the household. I like the female the best because we are well matched in our play drive. 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 many 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 and I get vocal.. I would do best in a home with another sociable dog, preferably female. 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: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is Duke and I'm about 16 months old. I was originally adopted in January 2017 when I was 8 weeks old. I was returned to BCHS in February 2018 because the 5 year boy in the family had lung issues and the dog dander caused him to have asthmatic attacks. I am timid with males and strangers. I warm up quickly to females. I like to be with people more than anything else. I do have good dog manners and know "Sit". I don't usually play with toys or play fetch. I do walk well on leash. I have a lot of energy so I would do best in a home with an active family and a fenced yard. I get along with other dogs and play hard. I am ok with rides in the car. I do need to learn to be more gentle when taking treats. I am house trained. 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 reduced from $150.00 to $125 because of a grant received from Petfinder Foundation.

      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. Through a grant from Petfinder Foundation my adoption fee has been waived and the cost of my current medication treatment plan will be covered for a year.
