Meet RIVER!  This absolutely adorable pup is a 1 year old, male, 40 lb, Bassett / Lab mix (just a guess).  River is sweet and just precious!  He is great with other dogs and walks well on a leash.  River is initially shy with new people.  He has bonded closely with his foster mom and is coming out of his shell with each passing day to be playful and loving.  He is a very happy dog when interacting with his canine foster siblings.  River is just a doll and since he is young and came from a rural environment, we are guessing that he did not have a lot of human socialization and spent his time with other dogs.  He is great at home, housetrained, and hangs out on the couch at night for snuggles.  All River needs is a little patience and understanding to be the wonderful dog that he is already showing that he is!  Once you gaze into his soulful eyes and feel those velvet ears, your heart will melt!  Fill out our application soon if you are smitten and want to come home to a dog who will be absolutely devoted to you! 



If you are interested in adopting River, please complete an application. If you want to enjoy the companionship of a dog or cat but not yet ready for the long-term commitment of adopting, perhaps fostering is more your speed. Please read our foster FAQ if you are interested in being a foster parent or contact foster@lovinliferescue.org.

All of our Captivating Canines are spayed/neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested, and up-to-date on vaccines per their age.

NOTE: We do NOT adopt out of state. Our range is about a 30 - 50 mile radius from Chicago.  This is because we personally do home visits for every single dog / puppy.  Exceptions ONLY in certain cases where a sweetie has issues (medical / behavioral / special needs) and we have had him / her for a longer time.  We will then travel to the Moon for a Forever Family!
