The Orphans of the Storm® Valentine’s Day event went great (maybe you saw us on the WGN News that weekend!), but there are still many dogs waiting for their turn for furever love. There’s no time like the present to come in and meet them!
Mongo the one-year-old Labrador Retriever mix is a handsome boy. I tried to take him out the week before, but he wasn’t too eager to go out in the cold. It was warmer this time, so he was happy to join me. Mongo has the cutest stubby tail that’s even cuter when its wagging. Mongo walks pretty nicely on the leash.
Mongo is a leaner. When you start petting him, he leans his whole body against you and sometimes tries to tuck his head into you. It’s a great snuggling technique! We took a few nice breaks as we made our way around the woodland preserve to cuddle. Mongo can be a little barky when other dogs are around, but otherwise he’s pretty quiet and well-behaved. Stop by soon to say hi to Mongo!
Nala the one-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix is super affectionate. She is more than ready to spend time snuggling on the couch with her future family. Nala loves hopping up on the nearest bench and will look at you until you sit down to join her. She sat on three or four different benches during the time I was out with her.
Nala also likes to play. When we were in the off-leash run, we spent some time playing fetch and tug-of-war. Nala walks nicely on the leash and would be a good walking buddy. She has quickly become a volunteer favorite because of her sweet personality. Be sure to say hi to Nala on your next visit!
Ralphie the eight-year-old Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mix has cute perky ears. They make him look like he’s always paying very serious attention to whatever you’re saying. But Ralphie doesn’t take things too seriously–he was happy to play with a rope toy when we were in the off-leash run.
Ralphie is a good leash walker. He stayed right by my side or just a few steps ahead as we made our way around the woodland preserve. He also didn’t mind stopping every once in a while to get a scratch on the back. Ralphie would do best as the only pet in an adult home. If that description meets your lifestyle, come in soon to meet Ralphie!
