Smokey's Story...
Breed is only a guess! If you are seeing this dog on this site she is available so there is no need to email us checking for availability. Instructions for how to proceed with a meet and greet are provided below. Please read the profile in it's entirety!


Meet sweet, beautiful Smokey! Smokey gets along with everyone. He is 14 years old, 45 pounds, and was surrendered too Chicago Animal Control because the owner lost his home. He was a hot mess...meaning he needed to be groomed. He was groomed two days later and look at how beautiful he is. Smokey has a lot of pep in his step and acts much younger then 14. He clearly has many years of life ahead of him. He is being fostered in Oswego around several other dogs who he is fantastic with, kitties which he has no problem with. He will occasionally make an appearance at Go Dog Go in Oswego. If you need some dog food, stop in pick some up and meet Smokey. He has been marking, but the foster mom is working on that and will begin using a belly band to correct the behavior. Likely from not being neutered when we got him. He is neutered now.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Smokey, a Naperville Golden Retriever/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Naperville, or seeking a Golden Retriever/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Naperville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Naperville 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 Naperville 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 Golden Retriever/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Golden Retriever/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Naperville paves the way for another one to be saved.
