|Jake — adopted April 2004
Jake came into rescue because his family wasn't able to
give him the attention he needed. Between the long
hours they were away at work and a new baby to care
for, there was very little time left for Jake. We found him a
great new home in which the 2 adults work flexible hours,
so they aren't gone all day long every day of the week.
There is a resident eskie to keep Jake company, he gets
out for 3 walks a day and has a huge fenced in yard
where he helps with the gardening.

|Jasmine — adopted August 2003
Jasmine needed a new home because her original owner was moving into an apartment that
did not allow dogs. A wonderful family came along to take her into their home. Now Jasmine
has a family that includes a mom and dad that give great belly rubs, a five year old to watch
Saturday morning cartoons with and a fellow eskie named Mika to play with all day long in a
big yard, all of which will be hers forever.
|Jasper – adopted June 2006
Jasper needed a new home because one of the children in his home developed an allergy
to him. We had no trouble finding a new home for Jasper as he was young & friendly, good
with kids, dogs & cats, and just an all around good dog. His new owner reports that Jasper
is doing great and is very happy to have an eskie roommate named Gracie to play with all
|Jazz – Adopted June 2006
Jazz was found wandering along a road in Wisconsin. The kind person who spotted her,
picked her up and did everything they could to find her owner. When no one came
forward to claim her, Jazz went on Petfinder to find a home. In no time at all, a family
answered her ad as they were looking for a playmate for their dog. We took Jazz to
meet her potential new family. Everything went great and the adoption was finalized.
Jazz now has a place to call home forever and a great playmate named Banjo.
|Joy – adopted May 2005
Joy needed a new home because she was over enthusiastic about people who came to
visit. When company arrived at her home, she would jump and nip at them. It's all out of
excitement - but to the point where people were afraid of her. Her owners could not train
her, so we found her a new family that was willing to work with her. With the help of all the
family members, Joy soon calmed down and has become a welcomed addition to their
|Juno — adopted August 2004
Juno is another sad story of a dog dumped in the country by an owner who no longer
wanted him. The woman who took him in wasn't able to keep him because she already
had two dogs. She contacted us for help, and we put Juno's picture and story on
Petfinder. About this same time, an eskie lover also contacted us wanting to adopt a
dog. We set up a meeting with Juno, and the rest is history. Juno now has a wonderful
new home where he will stay forever.
|Kodi — adopted November 2002
Kodi was surrendered to rescue when she was less than 1 year old. Her original owner
didn't realize how active she would be, and, with a new baby in the house, there was no
time for Kodi. Kodi was such a good dog we were able to call upon a family that was on our
waiting list for an eskie. The mom and kids fell in love and off she went. Now Kodi has 3
kids, a Shiba Inu and a big yard to help keep her busy.
|Kiana — adopted October 2002
It's hard to believe this adorable little girl was picked up as a stray and sat unclaimed in a
shelter. We brought her into a foster home where we learned what a bundle of untrained
energy she was. We searched for the right family who finally came along, eager to bring
her into their home. Kiana is happy as can be in her new home and enjoys her canine
roomy - Guinness.
|Linus — adopted April 2003
Linus was picked up as a stray and, because he was limping, brought to an animal clinic.
At the clinic they discovered the limp was due to an old injury and that Linus was otherwise
in good health. The folks at the clinic didn't want to take him to the animal shelter. They
knew because of his age and the limp, his chances of adoption were not good. They
contacted us to help. It wasn't long before a terrific retired couple came along, looking for
2 eskies, and adopted Linus and Kozmo together!! Today they go for daily walks and twice
a week trips to the dog park.
|Kozmo — adopted April 2003
Kozmo's original owners surrendered him to us when they realized they couldn't give him
the attention he deserved. Because of his need for activity it took awhile, but we finally
found Kozmo a great home. He was adopted out with Linus, and the two of them go on
walks every day and trips to the dog park twice a week.
|Lexi — adopted March 2004
After Lexi lost her original home for not getting along with the family bird, she got bounced
around between a few homes before settling in a downtown Chicago highrise. There she is
the center of attention and, being the petite girl she is, has fit into the apartment life
without a hitch. Both Lexi and her new owner couldn't be happier together.
|Lionel — adopted August 2006
Lionel was picked up as a stray and taken to an animal hospital where he stayed while the
staff there tried to locate his owner. He had a microchip that was traced to the kennel
where he was bred in Missouri; they said he was sold to a pet store in Massachusettes;
and they said he was sold to someone with a California drivers license and phone number.
But when they called that number, no one there admitted to knowing anything about him.
Into rescue he came where he waited at a foster home while we looked for a permanent
home for him. It wasn’t long until the person who adopted Simon back in 2002, called to
say she would now like to adopt Lionel. Lionel got a home and Simon got a little brother.
|Keller — adopted July 2008
Keller was turned into Orphans of the Storm shelter when his elderly owner passed
away. He had been adopted from the shelter just two years earlier which is why he was
brought back there.
