Rescue Dog of the Week

Carmen was rescued from a serious neglect case as she was found by a police officer chained to a shed, wrapped around a pole, emaciated, and dying of heartworm. If it had not been for the officer and the kindhearted staff at South Suburban Humane Society in Chicago Heights, Carmen would not have made it. Carmen was a staff favorite and when we visited the shelter to transfer dogs into Project Rescue Chicago, we couldn’t leave her behind!

Carmen has her doggy friends, though she is so bossy some dogs don’t care for her. She loves to go for walks, to play with a bunch of toys, to snuggle on her comfy fleece bed, and to be by your side. She knows some basic commands and walks well on leash; she is house and crate trained too! Carmen looks so serious in her photos for some reason, but is very easy to be around and fun!

Carmen is spayed, current on vaccines, micro-chipped, and ready to go home! To meet and possible adopt Carmen please complete an application here. Carmen is available through Project Rescue Chicago in Chicago, Illinois.

All Project Rescue Chicago alumni are eligible for assistance from The Rusty Fund if they encounter medical needs after adoption. Founded in honor of Rusty (who is featured on the cover of Ken Foster’s book I’m a Good Dog), this fund is part of the ongoing support offered to all dogs.

StubbyDog offers the Rescue Dog of the Week feature as a way of helping homeless dogs find forever homes. StubbyDog relies solely and in good faith on information provided by contributing organizations. We do not temperament test, behavior screen, or background check any of the featured dogs. StubbyDog does not receive any financial incentive or other consideration for providing this service.
