Reed is a dog among dogs, one who will steal your heart in an instant. He's a gentle, sweet and affectionate boy with a kind heart. "I'm polite and patient, and never rude," Reed would say if he could talk. "I'm fairly quiet, since I prefer to listen to all that is going on so I can better learn and understand.

Their landlord has given their shelter, Wright-Way Rescue at 7136 W. Touhy in Niles, a month-to-month lease. At any moment, he could give them notice they have 60 days to move out.
