Meet the Pet Show Pooches
Starting in October, regular dog-training presentations will show you how the techniques we use to train our dolphins and whales also work great with pets. Meet our new resident dogs:
An interesting mix of border collie and basset hound, this 3-year-old male is long but not too low to the ground. Barney was surrendered by his owner and came from the Anti-Cruelty Society.
The 2-year-old male black Lab was adopted from the Wright Way Rescue Organization, which rescues dogs in southern Illinois and brings them to adoption events in Chicago. Harley was given up by his owner. At 98 pounds, he’s the largest of the six dogs.
Another big boy, weighing about 70 pounds, the year-old American bulldog mix was found tied up in an abandoned building. He was adopted from Chicago Animal Care and Control.
This sweet-faced, year-old German shepherd mix came from Chicago Animal Care and Control. Sudden movements cause her to flinch, suggesting that she was abused, but she’s learning to trust her gentle trainers.
Less than a year old when she was adopted from Chicago Animal Care and Control, this fluffy West Highland white terrier mix is a sprightly 11 pounds.
The chihuahua/corgi mix, adopted from the South Suburban Humane Society, in Chicago Heights, is a handsome handful at 10 pounds.
