Due to Covid-19, our current adoption process has changed. At this time we are safely holding meet and greets outside in a public area with Covid 19 state guidelines in mind. The meet and greets are scheduled so each individual has their own time slot to ensure everyone's safety along with not over crowding the dog. If we choose to pursue to the next steps in the adoption process, we will continue with our reference checks. Once completed, we require a virtual home inspection to ensure that our dogs will be in a safe, comfortable environment.  We thank you for your understanding.

We would love for you to adopt one of our furry friends. If you are interested in adopting please click the following Link and complete the adoption application. We will review your application and reach out to you to get you paired with your forever best friend. 

We currently work in the following counties: Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake & Will

Hello all, it's me Shenzi. The newest, largest member of Little Giants. I was found roaming the streets of TN where I was scared, lonely and unsure of everything. I was in desperate need of help but wasn't sure if I was going to get it in time. Luckily Little Giants opened their arms and rescued me, even though I'm not a Little Giant. I am a sweetheart with a lot of love to give. I enjoy going on walks and am a very good girl on my harness. I can't help but explore and sniff everything when I am outside. I especially get excited when I see my bunny friends hopping around outside. I am very smart, attentive and a quick learner. I have a fun playful side but I also love to lounge and snuggle with you. Will you be the one I can give my love to? 

Rescue Notes: 
Shenzi is currently heartworm positive but has begun treatment.  LGDR & our veterinarian have proceeded with the American Heartworm Society treatment plan to effectively and efficiently ensure Shenzi a successful recovery. This treatment plan ranges from 90-120 days. If you would like to read more about the process and treatment please select the link.

Hey everyone, the name is Ace. I'm the 2nd largest Little Giant. I came from Indiana where I was all alone in the shelter just patiently waiting for my furever home but sadly it never came. Little Giants saw me and boy am I happy they did. I finally have a shot of getting my happy ever after ending. I am a sweet gentleman who loves to play and explore the outdoors. I am still a pup at heart and have a little bit of a wild side. I love to play with toys, dogs, humans, just about anything. I won't say I'm the best on the leash but I'm also not the worst but can you blame me?! There are so many fun things to look at and sniff outside, I just get so excited. I have so much happiness and excitement in me that I just want someone to share it with. Though I may be a ball of energy, I am a good listener and know commands. Did I mention that I LOVE food? I am very food/treat motivated so the sky is the limit when it comes to teaching me new things ...if there is food involved. Like I said before, I am a very sweet guy. Some may even call me charming. 🥰I am just looking for someone to be my best pal. 

**Adoption Requirements:

**Scheduled to become neutered. Scared with big dogs but does well with little/small dogs. Currently working on crate training. Does not do well with young kids- becomes frightened/cautious**

Hi! Hi! Hi! My name is Remi! I am a sweet little pup that traveled all the way from TN in hopes of finding my new furever home. I am a sweet loving little guy who loves to cuddle with you and I pretty much love everyone I meet. I do get nervous when it comes to little kids though so I prefer to stick with the big kids 😊For me being a little pup, I am pretty good at not having accidents in the house. I won't lie though, I have had a couple here and there but hey I'm still a little nugget and have some learning to do! When it comes to me and the crate, I don't like it one bit, that thing is scary😟 I tried it and it defiantly isn't for me. I am more of a free roaming kind of guy, but don't worry I am a good boy when I am left out. I don't chew or destroy anything I am just not one to be kept locked up, I need to be free! I love to go for walks and adventures- they are so much fun! I get to explore and see new little critters outside, it is great! I get nervous when I go in this big thing with 4 wheels on it but once I get to stick my head out the window and feel the wind hit my face, all my fears go away- it's the best thing ever and I just can't get enough. I have a lot of spunk and energy and will play and play until I can't play anymore and will pass out. I love to cuddle with you, give you kisses and oh the best is when you come home so I can greet you and give you more kisses- I get SOOO excited!!! I am still a young pup so I get nervous at night and need to be protected so I of course need to sleep with you and snuggle right up next to you. I still have a lot to learn and am looking for my furever home to learn it all and become the best pup I know I am!

**Lola is alpha and will let a dog know this. She is very selective on who she wants to be friends with. 
** Young children scare/alarm her and she may react. Children must be older if in home. 

Hi everyone, it's adorable little me, Lola! I am a little diva who wants to be the center of attention. I'm not trusting of everyone initially but once I sniff you out and think you're OK I will love you furever. I am a big sweetheart who loves to cuddle and get my belly rubbed. I love to be by you and just snuggle. I will say, that I try to be alpha of the pack when it comes to other dogs. I have to show that I am strong and mighty too, despite my size. I have been around dogs of all ages and sizes and some I liked while others not so much- what can I say, I'm picky. I enjoy going in the car for rides and exploring the outdoors on walks. I am a very good girl on the leash and though I may not know many commands I do listen very well. I'm not the biggest treat gal but I do LOVE to munch on a Greenie now and then- a girl has to watch her figure right?! When it come's to tiny adults (children), me and them don't mesh too well. Their squeals and quick movements alarm me and I don't like it, so it's best if me and them just stay apart. Overall, I am a pretty easy, laid back little girl just who loves to snuggle and give all my love. I traveled all the way from TN knowing that my furever home is here waiting for me.

Oh, hi there. My name is Peanut. I am a shy little girl who came from TN in hopes finding my new furever home, after my previous owner passed away. It has been pretty tough but I am one tough cookie and I know that I will find my furever family to love me here. It takes me a little bit to come out of my shell but once I do I am super sweet and loveable. I love to be outside and smell the great outdoors. I hop around like a little bunny- that's why my foster mama calls me Bunny! I enjoy cuddling and going for walks. Though I am not really sure what the word, "walk", means I enjoy it very much and am a very good girl on the leash. I can't say that I have met a dog or human that I haven't liked. As long as they show me love, I will show it back. I am very scared of thunderstorms, but who isn't?! Those things are terrifying!!!! My foster mama tells me that I am two different pups. I'm an elderly old lady when I'm inside- calm, quiet, slow but as soon as I get outside I turn into a playful little puppy and hop around. What can I say, I love the outdoors. I just want someone to love me like how I was loved before, someone to cuddle with, and protect me from those scary thunderstorms.
