Sable is nice, sweet and loves playtime. He really enjoys affection and getting pets, and he loves to be held.

Sweet Beanie is a bit shy at first, but when people she likes pets her, she rubs into their hands and purrs like crazy. She wiggles around on her side to get people's attention.

Steve is around 2 years old and does well with kids. He is not relaxed around other dogs so he must be the only dog in the home. Steve has a deformed paw, but that doesn’t slow him down. In fact, he required a fenced-in yard. To meet Steve, visit him at Wags 2 Wishes Animal Rescue at 23907 W Industrial Drive North in Plainfield or visit W2Wrescue.com.
