Young, Female, Medium
This peanut and her glorious ears are just the best! Quinn is an active little lady who adores kids and other dogs. She can be a tad bit wary of adult men at first but warms up quickly and her foster family reports she is a great listener who learns quickly and is eager to please.

Quinn is about 4.5 months old and thrives on cuddling, smooching, and oodles of attention and we can't wait to find her a wonderful family to shower her with all those things!

She is now spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped.

Looking for a jogging buddy?! Layla may be the gorgeous girl for you. At around 40 lbs and 1-year-old, Layla is a super friendly, and very energetic, young girl. She is outgoing and engaging with other dogs too so can certainly go to a forever home with other dogs so long as they don't mind her enthusiastic antics.

This smiley beauty is eager to please and seems to be a smartie too. We bet she'd do great in an agility class!

Young, Male, Not known
This big mush-mouth is just the best gentle giant on the planet. Though he's only about 4.5-5 months, Koda already weighs around 50 lbs and we anticipate that he's going to be a big dude when full grown.

Koda's foster mom is totally smitten with him and cannot say enough good things. He is great with people of all ages and also does well with other dogs (though is sometimes initially barky with them on leash). He is also in foster with a cat so it seems he can go to a forever family with feline companions too.

Koda is now neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $300 and as of 8/1 we'd love to have you come visit him at our Adoption Center at 2144 N Wood.

This little 12 lb. girl and her fuzzy beard/mohawk combo are kinda the best.

Her foster mom reports she is a quiet girl (not a barker) who, though a tad shy at first, is very affectionate and engaging. She does well with other dogs too and may actually thrive in a home with another pup to show her the ropes!

  • Pointer, Pit Bull Terrier
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Young, Female, Medium
June (Junie bee to her friends!) is one fun and sweet kiddo. Her foster momma says she is a fun-loving puppy who has lots of exuberance but also calms easily. She's a bright pup who picks up quickly on training and has already learned how to wait patiently for meals, take treats gently, and also does really well in her crate at night. She's also a total babe with a sleek houndy body and long pointer tail.

As is typical for pups her age (approximately 6 months) she can be mouthy but easily redirects onto a chew toy or other appropriate item. June is also good with other dogs so can certainly go to a home with other friendly canines and can potentially live with cats (there's one in her foster home) but it will involve management as she is quite curious!

June is now spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250 and as of 8/1 we'd love to have you come visit her at our Adoption Center at 2144 N Wood. We'll be there on 8/1 from 11-6 and on 8/2 from 11-3 so hope to see you then. If you'd like to get approved for adoption in advance, you can access our survey here:Apply Now

This super adorable goofy eared fellow is a new addition to the crew and he's just the best! Drake is about 3.5-4 months old and a total peach with everyone he meets. Sometimes he's a little shy with dogs in new situations but quickly befriends buddies of all kinds.

Drake does have a grade 3 heart murmur but it does not need any treatment at this time, just monitoring to make sure he stays a healthy and happy dude! He is otherwise totally healthy, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to find his forever home!

His adoption fee is $300 and as of 8/1 Drake will be at our adoption center at 2144 N Wood St and can't wait to meet you! We'll be there 11-6 on 8/1 and 11-3 on 8/2. If you'd like to submit an application and get approved prior to heading over, you can access it here:Apply Now

  • Pit Bull Terrier, Labrador Retriever

Young, Female, Medium
This sweet and gentle flower is Alouette and boy is she a doll. At about 11 months old and only 35 lbs, she is the full package of looks and personality. Alouette joined the rescue through the Safe Humane Chicago program meaning that she had a rough start in life and originally arrived at Chicago Animal Control as a cruelty case. But don't fret, this kiddo has left that old life behind her and is ready for her happily ever after!

Alouette is currently in foster with another dog and loves to romp around with her canine buddies so can certainly go to a home with another social dog. She is also super sweet with people though can be a tad shy at first and super active little kids may overwhelm her.

Our gal is now spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested. She's totally healthy save for an adorable hair lip which doesn't require anything medically and just contributes to her character. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now

  • Pit Bull Terrier, Boxer
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Senior, Male, Large
If you're looking for an angel here on Earth, look no further. Cove is your guy. At 12 years old he's looking for a comfortable home to live out his golden years. He's great with all living creatures, is incredibly mild mannered, and mostly just wants to sleep the day away. Cove loves car rides and sitting outside cafes people watching. He does still get around just fine, and can even move fast when he wants (usually when he sees a pretty girl he wants to meet) but does have a bit of arthritis in his hind legs that prevents the long runs he used to go on.

House broken, quiet, sweet, loving, and totally chill - Cove is a classy gentleman who is stoic and easy going. This is one of the most low-maintenance dogs you'll ever meet.

Cove is being fostered in Portland, OR. Email us at OTATpdx@gmail.com with any questions.Apply Now

This handsome guy is named Toby. He is friendly, does well with kids, dogs and cats, and would love to go home with you! He has such a lovely demeanor and is such a low maintenance fellow that he should prove a good match for just about any loving home.

  • Beagle
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Adult, Male, Medium
Kale Chips is a celebrity! He made national headlines and was featured all over the Internet after we rescued him in January 2015. He was a whopping 85 lbs and could barely walk due to his severe obesity. Since joining us he has lost over 30 lbs and is well on his way to being healthy and happy.

Read all about him here: http://tinyurl.com/ovnfs2j

Kale Chips has no medical issues, but he will need to go to a home that is dedicated to helping him continue to lose weight.

Kale is a spirited, typical Beagle who is full of sass and Beagle howls. He's super friendly with people, great with other dogs and likes to be outside. His stubborness comes out when he doesn't want to do something, so we would like to place him with an experienced owner who will give him boundaries without pushing him. He's a *great* dog and deserves only the best.

Good with dogs, cats and people. Not a big fan of kids.
We believe he is between 7-9 years old.

Email HeatherOTAT@gmail.com if interested in Kale Chips.
His adoption fee has been sponsored and he has been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. Visit http://www.onetail.org for more information.Apply Now

  • Shepherd, Terrier
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Young, Female, Large
This sweet girl is Cammie and she is so much fun! She is around nine months old and 38 lbs. Cammie really enjoys romping around with other dogs, so she would do well in a home with other playful pups. She likes to wrestle and also cuddle with her canine friends.

Cammie is a high energy girl and would do best in a home with playtime and structure. She went to an obedience bootcamp and is a total rockstar with her commands (her "down/stay" is great!!). She is also housebroken and walks nicely on leash. Cammie will bark in her crate a bit, but she does settle down after a while, but she would be best in a home where her barking won't disturb neighbors.

This fun-loving lady is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250. If you think she could be the gal for you then you can find an application for her at Apply Now

Young, Male, Medium
The stubby-legged heartbreaker is named Bishop and he is ready to go home with you! He is a well behaved boy, but he does take a little while to warm up to new people so it would be best if he went to a home without children. Bishop would also prefer to be the only animal in the house. He is around 1 year old and about 40 lbs.

Bishop does have some separation anxiety and barks when he is in his crate. We think Bishop would do best in a single family home, preferably in the suburbs where his baking would not bother neighbors. Currently though he's a city boy and is really thriving with his foster dad!

Bishop's adoption fee has been sponsored by one of his doting fans so you can spend that money on toys and treats for him instead! Bishop is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested.
