Sweet, sweet Lainey Jane needs a friend, a family, a home.

This stunning 8-year-old English Setter mix is one sad girl. She has been in two homes recently, and she's trying really hard to be brave, but is understandably confused. Lainey Jane has the softest, sweetest eyes that will pierce your soul. She needs a family to provide patient, loving kindness and to reassure her that she will be home forever.

Lainey Jane is 95% housebroken, does well in her crate, is a quiet girl, and does well with her canine foster brother who is an older, very mellow lab mix. She also lives with two cats in her foster home and ignores them. She loves to go on walks with her foster brother and is frequently pointing out the birds and squirrels to him.  She is still learning not to pull on leash, but it's hard because everything outside is so exciting! Truly, she is a great dog; she has quick spurts of energy and then is content to take a nice nap in a sunny nook. She is underweight at 33 pounds-she can be a finicky eater, but is coming around and learning that food is fun.

As she is beginning to trust and feel safe in her foster home, she is showing her silly, playful setter side. Her foster mom says "she is hilarious to watch hopping around after her favorite toy." With time, as her confidence grows, she is sure to show that happy side all of the time. Once that happens, you will have a devoted friend for life.

Lainey's perfect family will have experience with shy dogs and understand that she needs time to trust new people. She will need space to blossom. She would do well with another calm dog who just wants to hang out (no party animal pups for this regal girl), or would be fine as an only dog. If there are felines in the house, no problem!

Can you help this beautiful girl mend her broken heart? Please fill out an application and come meet her at an upcoming Second City Canine Rescue adoption event. 

Please check our events page at to find where this dog may be shown this weekend. If you are interested in adopting this dog, you must send an application or email us at prior to a Saturday Adoption Event so we know you plan on attending. If we do not receive any communication from you, the dog may be adopted out at our event prior to 12 pm if the perfect home comes along :-)

The breed or breed mix listed for each dog is simply a guess. The profile software program requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. However, visual breed identification is unreliable. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog's individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess. Dogs are individuals.

Please understand, we only adopt our animals out near Chicagoland... we are sorry but we cannot accept any out of state applications. We look forward to speaking with you!
