Jake's Story...
Hi,

I'm Jake. My siblings and I were left in a box at the door of a high-kill shelter in Kentucky when we were just 6 weeks old. Luckily for us, Chicagoland Dog Rescue said they would take us and find us homes. Nobody really knows what breed we are. The shelter in Kentucky thought we were border collie mixes, probably because Jasmine has white markings and one blue eye. Other people think we are retriever mixes. Whatever we are, we are very cute. We only weigh 6-7 pounds now, but we will get bigger. How much bigger is anybody's guess. We are pretty typical puppies. We like to eat, play and get lots of attention. Our foster mom says anybody wanting to adopt a puppy should understand how much work is involved. She said if you come see us at adoptions, ask for our handout called "So you think you are ready to adopt a puppy". We will be at the CDR adoption event Saturday from 10:30 - 2:30 if you would like to meet us. Please fill out an application online if you are interested in adopting us. Hope to see you Saturday.

XOXO,

Jake

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jake, a Schaumburg Retriever (Unknown Type)/Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Retriever (Unknown Type)/Border Collie for sale in Schaumburg, or seeking a Retriever (Unknown Type)/Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Schaumburg.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Schaumburg 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 Schaumburg 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 Retriever (Unknown Type)/Border Collie breeders who help with Retriever (Unknown Type)/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Schaumburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
