Benedict's Story...
Hi! I’m Benedict, I’m an Aussie mix 10 week old puppy. I am all white except with some creamy colored spots. I am not sure what I am mixed with … perhaps Lab if you look at my big webby paws. I have really pretty eyes like an Aussie. My 3 sisters and I were brought to a kill shelter by our owners but were saved by Illinois Animal Rescue. I like to spend my days playing with my sisters but they play too rough with me even though I much bigger than them! Maybe I’m being the Perfect Gentleman and not playing just as rough. But when we are done playing I love to snuggle in your arms and let you gaze into my pretty eyes. So how about calling my Foster Mom for a Meet and Greet so you can see those eyes everyone talks about?Benedict is living in a foster home with other dogs and cats and gets along great with them. He is learning his potty training while he waits for his forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Benedict, a Palatine Australian Shepherd puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd for sale in Palatine, or seeking a Australian Shepherd puppy from a breeder in Palatine.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Palatine already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Palatine breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Palatine paves the way for another one to be saved.
