Extras

Bella

Age: 4 years old

Breed: Great Pyrenees mix

Background: Bella has been through several weeks of professional training and is great with basic commands, but she will need a good leader to continue to build her confidence. Her trainer will be available, and her adoption also comes with lifetime training through Woofbeach.

Personality: At 75 pounds, Bella is affectionate and loves people. She can be insecure at times, which results in her guarding her “things.” Because of her size, she should go to a home with no small children.

Other: Bella is spayed and up to date on vaccinations.

Adoption fee: $200

Where to find her: www.helpinganimals.org or 877-364-2286

Billy

Age: 9 months old

Breed: Australian cattle dog mix

Background: Billy came to ADOPT in December from an owner who could not give him the attention and time he needs.

Personality: Billy is a gorgeous Australian cattle dog (Blue Heeler) mix. He is a young pup, full of energy and eager to learn. The shelter has been stressful for Billy, and he does not get the stimulation he needs. He is quick to learn new behaviors and would do well at agility. He needs to have a “job” at all times.

Adoption fee: $300

Where to find him: ADOPT Pet Shelter, 420 Industrial Drive, Naperville, 630-355-2299 or www.adoptpetshelter.org.

Mitzi

Age: 1 year old

Breed: Shepherd mix

Background: Coming along well on her basic training, she is learning to sit, stay and walk nicely on a leash.

Personality: Sweet, fun-loving and absolutely adorable, Mitzi enjoys people of all ages, both kids and adults. This little shepherd, 25 pounds, has loads of energy to play ball and needs a fenced yard. Check out the video of her playing at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oksgTRBp3-U&feature=youtube_gdata_player.

Other: Mitzi is spayed, housebroken, crate trained and current on her vaccinations; microchipping is included with her adoption fee.

Adoption fee: $200

Where to find the pet: RoverRescue.org or call 630-897-7454

Heidi

Age: 4 years old

Breed: Domestic short hair

Background: Heidi was rescued from Fixin Ferals. She was pregnant when she was found and went into foster care. On March 16, 2012, she gave birth to three kittens, two of which had birth defects. All three kittens found homes.

Personality: She is affectionate and social, and in her own way, loves to hang around people. She needs time to warm up to you.

Adoption fee: $50

Other: All animals at ADOPT are vet checked, spayed or neutered, microchipped and are up to date on age-related vaccines.

Coco

Age: 2 years old

Breed: American pit bull terrier mix

Background: Coco was surrendered to NAHS because her owners no longer had time for her.

Personality: Coco is a friendly dog with a lot of personality. She needs an active family with children who have experience with dogs. She can be jumpy when she gets excited. Coco would probably do best as an only pet, since she cannot live with cats and can be picky about her canine friends.

Adoption fee: $200

Other: All animals at NAHS have been examined for health and temperament, are up-to-date on vaccines and have been microchipped. They are spayed and neutered at adoption.

Where to find this pet: Naperville Area Humane Society, 1620 W. Diehl Road, Naperville, www.napervilleareahumanesociety.org.

Bo

Age: 5 years old

Breed: Domestic short hair

Background: Bo was surrendered to NAHS because his owners had too many pets.

Personality: Bo can be a little shy at first, but once he feels comfortable with you, he is a very affectionate cat. He loves being pet pretty much everywhere and loves attention. He seems to like most other cats, but a dog in the home might be a bit too much.

Adoption fee: $50

Other: All animals at NAHS have been examined for health and temperament, are up-to-date on vaccines and have been microchipped. They are spayed and neutered at adoption.

Where to find this pet: Naperville Area Humane Society
