DOG FOUND - Small black terrier

Hello, I was taking my dog for a walk this morning near 54th and Drexel when a little short-haired black terrier with a red collar but no tags started following us up and down the block. The dog was friendly, male, and un-neutered. Looked very thin, but otherwise healthy and in no acute distress. Long story short, a couple across the street is keeping an eye on this dog for the time being while we try to find where it...

Hello, I was taking my dog for a walk this morning near 54th and Drexel when a little short-haired black terrier with a red collar but no tags started following us up and down the block. The dog was friendly, male, and un-neutered. Looked very thin, but otherwise healthy and in no acute distress. Long story short, a couple across the street is keeping an eye on this dog for the time being while we try to find where it lives. Please contact me at mkdjunk 'at' gmail 'dot' com if this dog is yours or if you know who it belongs to. Also, does the community have a recommendation for what we should do if we cannot locate the owner? Thanks, Michael

    We're taking it to the HP Animal Clinic to get scanned and then will send to animal control if we don't hear anything. If you recognize, please comment with your phone.

  • After hitting all the neighborhood dog spots and taking him for a walk around the few blocks, we had to call it quits. The pup is now at AWL, 6224 S Wabash, 773.667.0088. They'll keep him for around 7 days and then send him off to their Chicago Ridge location for adoption. If you have any info feel free to give them a call. Thanks to everyone who tried to help get the pup home.

    Thank you for posting to try and help get him back home. He looks like a Chihuahua and I will keep my eye out for his family and will let them know where he went if I find something. Thanks again!

Keeping a Close Eye on CPD's Glenn Evans

I'm not going to bore anyone with the details but I have (as well as many others in the 3rd District) witnessed first hand the abuses of power Commander Evans has delivered over his brief reign in Woodlawn. Now with a new commander at the helm, I'm relieved but only in part.

I'm not going to bore anyone with the details but I have (as well as many others in the 3rd District) witnessed first hand the abuses of power Commander Evans has delivered over his brief reign in Woodlawn. Now with a new commander at the helm, I'm relieved but only in part. With all the lawsuits and complaints against him, i'm afraid the CPD is going back to their old playbook, tossing him from district to district like a hot potato. If anyone knows his current tour-of-duty please let me know. I want to insure that his past follows him and catches up with him sooner then later.. As of yet, to the best of my research, he has been named a defendant in six different lawsuits over the course of his career.

Landlords who allow 3 cats?

I'm thinking of moving to Hyde Park in the future and am trying to find landlords who will allow 3 cats. Most landlords who allow cats have a 2-cat limit. Thanks.

  • My boyfriend and I tried Mac when we had four cats, and they told us that their policy is two animals per unit and that they do random checks. Violating it could get you evicted. TLC also has a two animal limit. Your best bet might be trying the smaller management companies or people renting condos. Just make sure you have it in writing and read the lease carefully.

  • Anna F Longtime Hyde Parker interested in neighborhoods.

    McKey and Poague have a few apartments. Some of them are condos so pet limitations may depend on owners. Maybe try UChicago market place? They have a section on apartments/condos for rent.

Update: Jackson Park Dog Park

Added to the agility training course:
construction horse
suspended tire
cones

Many thanks to the anonymous benefactor of the bucket of fetching balls. I moved it all to the car, as balls go missing, i'll distribute them among the three Wooflawn dog parks. https://www.facebook.com/wooflawn Speaking of which, if anyone has any old toys your pup has lost interest in, please consider donating them to the dog park to give them a second life.

Driving Directions: LSD to Science Drive, go south on Columbia Drive beyond MSI's southern parking lot where you'll find the bridge to the tennis courts. Parking by the courts is free. The 'dog park' is located in the NE court enclosure. See bird's eye view => http://chicago.everyblock.com/pets/apr17-jackson-park-dog-park-6094931/photos/
