Hey, hey, any Cubs fans out there? I'm Javy, named to honor Javier Baez, baseball superstar! I'm a 2-year-old Shepherd mix weighing 72 pounds and, like my namesake, ready to play!

I sure am hoping to steal home at my next game! I'm so well-mannered: I'm housebroken and crate-trained, good with other dogs, know a number of commands, and very rarely bark.

Won't you take me out to the park? I'd love to play ball, run around, and just soak up this awesome Spring sunshine! I'm good at a number of positions (including sit and stay) and will come obediently when the inning is up. I'd love a dog teammate in my new home, so we can play. Holy cow, life is fun!

When the day winds down, I'm happy to snuggle on the couch and watch some baseball on tv. I'll trade you some of my kisses for a few ear-scratches and good petting! At night, I sleep soundly in my crate.

That human Javier Baez makes running home look easy; I'm hoping for a home run of my own. Come meet me at the Second City Canine Rescue adoption event this week - you'll be the one in Cubby blue, I'll be the one in a red bandana.

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!
