Hello. We found an adorable dog yesterday roaming around Kostner and Kamerling. She was going south on Kostner and almost got hit by a car when She decided to go east. She is safe now, took her a bath, fed her and will take her to the vet later on today to see if she is chipped. I posted on Ilinois lost dogs, pawboost and also craigslist. I contacted 311 and reported the dog as well. If this is your dog or if you have any information regarding this dog please contact me at 773 936 9979..call me or text me anytime. I am really hoping the owners are found. Thank you
