Casey and Max are a canine odd couple in real life. But the oddest thing about them is why no one has snatched them up yet.
Felix and Oscar. Bill and Ted. Riggs and Murtagh. Casey and Max? OK, these two cocker spaniels haven't entered the pantheon of onscreen buddies, but that's because they don't have a good agent. Spend a few minutes with them, though, and you'll see they have a special chemistry that comes from living together. Unfortunately, their owner had to give them up when he lost his house, and they have been at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park since Sept. 25. Max, 8, is the friendly, fun-loving type. When he arrived at PAWS, he had a benign growth on his neck that was drained and removed and hasn't caused him any additional problems. Casey, 9, isn't as outgoing, but that doesn't mean he doesn't like being around people. He also has the lighter coat…

Meet Rosie and Lily, two playful and inseparable (and tiny) Dachshunds in need of a home together.
Rosie and Lily are two lovable and playful miniature Dachshund dogs that need an owner who will appreciate them both. They were taken to PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park together from a different shelter and may be related. The two are inseparable and would need to be adopted together. Lily is five years old, while Rosie is one year old. They both have been at the shelter for about two weeks. They are food aggressive with each other, and would do best in a home with older children. If you're interested in adoption, contact the shelter at 815-464-7298 or visit its website. Looking for more adoptable pets? Gus, an orange domestic short hair, is waiting for a new home.

Meet Millie, a two-year-old Pointer mix who needs a home with folks who like outside energy and inside calm.
Millie is a two-year-old Pointer mix in need of a home. Inside, she's a very calm, gentle and responsive to people and their commands. Outside, she lets her energy out. Millie has been at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park since early September, when she was transferred from another shelter. Staff at PAWS said she's a real sweetheart and they are surprised she's remained as long. PAWS also has several cats and kittens available for adoption, several that are declawed as well.

Grayster and Zolton are waiting to move into a new home.
A dynamic duo of black, domestic short-hair cats is staying at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park. They are originally from Mokena and were dropped off after the previous owner could no longer afford to keep them. The shelter volunteers are hoping that Grayster (who has a layer of white fur below a layer of black hair) and Zolton can be adopted out together. The brother cats came in together and should leave together. The cats are declawed in all four paws and should be kept as indoor cats. The pair also are litter box trained. Neither are aggressive and will do well with other cats. Zolton is definitely the more relaxed one of the two. Grayster is playful and likes to explore. Both are loving and friendly. If you're interested, contact …

Two-year-old Samson wants a new home.
Samson is a tought dog to pin down. No, he's not feisty; he's just a stray from Tinley Park and not much is known about his background. The great volunteers at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park said the two-year-old dog is a Terrier mix but he certainly looks like he could pass for another breed of dog. He is definitely peppy enough to be a Terrier. Samson has energy to spare but isn't wild or frantic in any way. Toss him a ball and you'll quickly make a new best friend. A family that wants a playful dog will find Samson to be a good fit. If you're interested, contact PAWS at 815-464-7298 or visit the shelter's website. Join the conversation.

You can't tell from the video but this Bichon mix usually has a puffy coat.
Binny is sporting his summer look now. The good people at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park gave the 4-year-old Bichon mix a haircut recently. He came in resembling a giant cotton ball, according to pictures in his file. Binny was picked up from a high-kill shelter and is looking for a new home. Most smaller dogs you'll come across are highly energetic. Binny follows a much more laid back way of life. He is friendly, adventurous and enjoys the company of people. The one hiccup is that he still needs to be housebroken. A new owner will have to help Binny adjust to living indoors. If you're interested in adoption, contact the shelter at 815-464-7298 or visit its website. Some recent success stories include Buddy Boy, a gentle, green-eyed …

Maddi is eight years old and is ready for a comfortable home. Ernie, who is one year old, wants to play.
Maddi would like nothing better than to sit next to you. This 8-year-old domestic shorthair has been at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park since the end of July. It's hard to see why anyone would want to give up this sweet creature. Maddie is missing the tips of his ears. Volunteers believe she suffered a bit of frostbite at some point. Maddi just loves to be constantly around people. She loves everyone she meets at the shelter and is an extremely easy-going pet. Ernie is another sort altogether. This 1-year-old domestic shorthair is full of energy. The volunteers said Ernie is a climber and jumper. He'll easily keep up with someone looking for an energetic buddy around the house. It's recommended that Ernie be the only cat in the house, …
