Despite a sad back story, this young dog is friendly and energetic.
Aramis and his brother, Tiberious, were left to die, tied to some furniture on a curb by their previous owners, according to South Suburban Humane Society staff. This one-year-old boxer-terrier mix is now looking for an owner that will give him the proper care he needs. Aramis is energetic, loves to play and like walks, but will need a little more house-training, SSHS said. Although, the youngster will sit if given a treat. Aramis was found tied to baby furniture, so SSHS says he may have been around small children, adding that he would still need to be monitored. He gets along well with other dogs and has been neutered. PLEASE VISIT our Patch Places directory to learn more about the South Suburban Humane Society.

A big fawn and white dog that loves to play with other dogs.
Meet Squiggles, a one-year-old Terrier-Pit Bull mix that found his way to the South Suburban Humane Society when his owners moved. Squiggles is pretty big but he walks well on a leash, can sit and shake and loves squeaky toys, according to SSHS staff. He also gets along with other dogs, as long as they can keep up with him. Because Squiggles is so big, he probably shouldn't go to a home with small children, as he could knock them over. Squiggles has been neutered and needs a bath and nail trim from time to time. For information about this dog, please contact the South Suburban Humane Society.

Meet a domestic shorthair that lost his longtime owner.
Sadly, Sox was separated from his loving owner when she went into a nursing home, according to the South Suburban Humane Society staff. But here's the good news: This 5-year-old domestic shorthair gets sponsored medical care from a "guardian angel," which makes him a risk-free adoption, says SSHS. Sox is house-trained, but has never lived with anyone other than his owner, so there would be an adjustment period. He has been neutered but not declawed. If you are interested in seeing or adopting Sox, please contact the South Suburban Humane Society in Chicago Heights. PLEASE VISIT our Patch Places directory for more information about SSHS.
