RAIDER 19-030-IL

Age: 5 1/2 years
     DOB Feb 2014

Weight: 75 pounds

State: Illinois

Contact: Mark Howitz at 847-541-0166 or

Check out this handsome boy! Doesn’t he look great?

He is five years old and up to date on all his shots.

He does not mind a good bath and groom, but he’s not too crazy about getting his toenails cut. He gets along great with other larger dogs. He’s okay on car rides and meets and greets people without a problem. He’s a tall guy so no small children as he may knock them down.

He does love belly rubs and enjoys playing with other bigger dogs so a doggie buddy would be great.

When he came into rescue he weighed a whopping 87 pounds. Since we’ve had him on a diet and exercise plan, and with his haircut, his approximate weight is 75 pounds.

Raider is an active guy so someone who has Airedale or terrier experience would be ideal. If Raider sounds like he should be your new best friend, contact Mark right away.

Nine year old Maddie is such a sweet girl! She is quite petite at 49 pounds. She was recently groomed and loved every minute of it.

She does not mind other dogs or cats.  How about that!

She's up to date on shots and house trained.

Please don't let her age be a factor, she is very healthy and wants to give you years of love.

REINER 19-031-IL

Age: 2 Years
     DOB 17 Feb 2017

Weight: 55 pounds

State: Indiana
Contact: Mark Horwitz
 at 847-541-0166 or

This little guy is full of spunk! He's ready for a loving home with NO cats. We believe it is best if his home has no small chldren just due to his excitable youth.

He is great in the car and likes a good, long walk.

He is up to date on shots and just had his first groom.

This handsome boy is house trained.

Bo 19-025-IL

Bo has just come into SOAR through no fault of his own. His mom and dad got a divorce. We are looking for a foster or forever home for Bo.

Here is what we know about him. He is 8 years old (his birthday is 2-22-2011) and weighs about 70 pounds. He loves his people and is not food aggressive, but he MUST MUST MUST be fostered/placed as an only dog (no cats or young kids either).

The collage of photos are of Bo three years ago. The second photo is of him now. He doesn't understand why his world has been turned upside down and really hopes that someone will want to love him again.

If you are interested in fostering or adopting Bo, please contact Mark ASAP.
