Baby

Age: 2 years old

Breed: Dachshund, terrier mix

Background: Baby was surrendered in September to ADOPT by an owner who could no longer care for him.

Personality: Baby was adopted and then returned recently because he and the adopter’s cat did not get along. Baby is a happy, friendly boy that is house trained and loves to cuddle. He’d be a great snuggle buddy for those long winter nights. He can be fearful of other animals and would do best as an only pet.

Adoption fee: $250

Breed: Domestic short hair-brown tabby mix

Background: Nala was a rescue transfer from Chicago Animal Control.

Adoption fee: $50
