Fontina's Story...
Meet Fontina, a 9 week old puppy who we were told is a German Shepherd/hound dog mix. Along with her assorted 7 brothers and sisters, she has just arrived at Adopt A Pet. This is what her first foster home had to say: "Tina is happy, very friendly, fearless and smart. She conquered stairs on her first try, and loves to play with other dogs and people and is not afraid of water! She is more vocal than her brothers. But it seems like she truly wants to communicate, making eye contact frequently. She will be a fast learner when it comes to training."

Like all young puppies, Fontina needs a family where someone is home part or all day, who will commit to house-training and then obedience training. If you have the time to invest, this little girl won't disappoint!

You can meet Fontina at Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Road, anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750). Although you may want to adopt him on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Fontina's adoption fee of $350 includes: vet exam, distemper combo and bordetella vaccinations, deworming, flea and tick preventative, microchip and spay.
