Buddy's Story...
Buddy is a very sweet, energetic and fun, two to three-year-old, 57-pound, male, tri-color Hound/Shepherd-mix looking for a loving forever home! Buddy is EXCELLENT with other dogs and would probably do best in a home with another energetic dog that he could play with. He plays VERY nicely with toys and does not destroy stuffed animals. He gently chews on them for a while with his front teeth and then lays with them like he is cuddling with the toy. He allows bones and toys to be taken out of his mouth with no problem. He loves to play fetch and would love someone that would play ball or Frisbee with him in the yard. Once he gets his exercise and burns off some energy, he will lay down for cuddles and belly rubs. He is EXTREMELY smart and catches onto training very quickly. He does great in activities that provide him with mental stimulation. He walks pretty nicely on a leash, is housebroken, crate-trained and he is also good in the car.

Buddy is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, de-wormed, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. Buddy is blind in one eye from a previous injury, but he gets around just fine. His adoption donation of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog. If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting him, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net. He is being fostered near Chicago, IL.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buddy, a Chicago Hound (Unknown Type)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Chicago.

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