Meet Bahamas

Hi, my name is Bahamas. I was rescued from Texas. I came with my littermates, our names are: Bahamas, Spain, Switzerland, Morocco, Italy, Australia and Jamaica. We are a rowdy but snuggly group who are expected to be medium size dogs. We were rescued with mange, so you will notice that our hair is a little bit thinner but no worried, we are in recovery and getting fuzzier every day! Please keep in mind, age, breed and full grown weight estimates are our best guess, so your guess is as good as ours. All dogs can be cat tested upon request. We do not have children to test our dogs with ahead of meetings, so all meetings with kids are done with supervision by a professional. With all of the DNA tests happening, we're discovering we're almost always wrong with our guesses, so please take our guess for what they are, educated guesses!!! We usually have limited information on "backstorys as most of our dogs come from open-access shelters in the south and are found as strays. Our staff will not guarantee housebreaking status to you since the dog's schedule varies daily and we don't think it's fair to label them as "100% yes or no. Please expect accidents for the first few weeks as your new pup adjusts! How quickly do you respond to our communications? Because this process is very fast moving, we typically move on to the next application if we do not get a call back within the hour, we do try to text as well. Quick responses and enthusiasm are always a good thing! ??All pups who come into our shelter are true puppies, which means they pee and poop like crazy, they're not housebroken, they cry and whimper and howl and teeth and nip and sleep and eat and sleep and eat and play, play, play. They're 100% puppies who require 100% of your time, attention, energy, compassion and patience. If you're up for all of the highs and lows of bringing a new puppy into you home, please fill out the application. If this doesn't sound like your style, take a look at some of our more "mature dogs :) All of our dogs go home up to date on vaccines, preventatives, dewormers, heartworm testing, are fixed and receive all medical care needed prior to finalizing an adoption. If the pet has not been fixed yet, they will go home as a foster to adopt and you will be responsible for taking them to be fixed at our clinic in Lisle, IL or for an additional $100 fee, in Des Plaines, IL on the day we schedule the appointment. If your pet goes as a foster to adopt, you are responsible for a $150 deposit at the time of signing the contract and would pay the remaining balance on the day your pet gets fixed. If you are adopting a dog over 6 months old, you must have any children under 13 meet the dog you are interested in and if you have a resident dog in the home already, they will also have to have a dog meet. We do same day adoptions, so please be prepared to adopt when scheduling a meeting or visiting our shelter, we don't want you to be broken hearted if the dog gets adopted when you leave!
