*MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi future family! My name is Demi, and if you are looking for a devoted, tender and loving BFF to be by your side through all of life's adventures, I am the big girl for you! I am a 2-year-old, 65-pound Shepherd mix, and I am as sweet and as beautiful as they come! I have velvety soft black-and-tan fur, and my expressive, soulful eyes are always looking in the direction of my favorite people so you can always know how much I love you! But as gorgeous as I am on the outside, my personality really is my best feature! My Fetching Tails friends met me at Chicago Animal Care and Control, where I was being surrendered by my previous family along with my buddy Mack and son Pedro. Thankfully, foster homes stepped up for us and we all made our way to FTF. I have been soaking up the cuddles and attention in my foster home, and cannot wait to find my real forever family! I can be a little demure at first when I meet new people but once I know we are going to be friends, I am attached to you like velcro in no time! I bond quickly to my people and prefer to be near them as much as possible so I would do great in a home where my family is home more often than not. I love to follow my foster mommy around wherever she goes in the house so I can be ready for an impromptu cuddle and nap. I get along well with other doggies and even kitty cats so I would be a great addition to any household! I also previously lived with human kiddos and was good with them, too! When I think of my forever home, I would love to have a fenced yard because I enjoy playing zoomies and romping around the yard with my foster mommy and canine foster brother Finton! I also enjoy dancing with my foster mommy when she puts music on: she replaces most words with my name and I put on the biggest grin and tap my tail along with the beat. But if I am being totally honest, I am happiest when I get to be a couch potato with you; nothing makes me happier than curling up and helping my foster parents stay comfy on the couch by offering my torso as their pillow so we can unwind together after a long day! I know it might sound like bragging, but I also have pretty great manners, too! I am potty trained and am gentle and sweet when enjoying treats from my foster parents. I do not like to be crated, and bark when I miss my humans while they arent home so I would prefer a single family home as opposed to a townhouse or condo with shared walls between the neighbors. I also get spooked by loud noises sometimes and want to retreat to a quiet place, so a calmer house would be ideal for me. My confidence is a work in progress, but I have been making great strides thanks to my foster parents and friends at FTF! I get to go to doggie daycare while my foster parents are at work and it is SO much fun! My fosters have taken me on many fun adventures so I can experience the big, wide world around me and I am really coming out of my shell! I hope for a patient family that will continue to help me gain confidence and be the self-assured girl I am meant to be! I am loving and kind, and my foster mommy tells me all the time I am angelic; could I be the sweet angel doggie for you? If you think we could be cuddle buddies for life, please reach out to Fetching Tails Foundation soon and tell them Demi is the sweetheart for you!
