Olive's Story...
Introducing Macy's 10 babies: Olive, Jack, Friday, Forest (aka Ham), Betty, Beauty, Decker, Berry, Angus and Bean. My name is Olive. My life started out in a very exciting fashion. You see my momma, Macy, was at the high kill Memphis Animal Services. She was along a long row of black dogs. Have you ever heard of black dog syndrome? It's a thing, look it up. Anyway, momma had all of us in her tummy and she would just beg people with her eyes when they stopped and looked at her. But because we were in her tummy, momma became "rescue only", meaning the only people who could adopt her was a rescue. So now she's a soon to be mom in one of the most notoriously awful shelters in the country. It's the truth, Google it.

Well one rescue lady fell in love with momma and adopted her. She was picked up from the shelter on a Tuesday and we were born on a Saturday. It was a close call for us, we are so thankful that momma is such a sweet girl and got us all out of that place.

So life since then has been kind of boring, but a good boring. We have been living a good life, in foster homes. Once we got weaned from momma, we were split up in pairs and put into new foster homes so we could learn more about living in a home and not in such a huge group. At first I said to myself, "Olive, how you gonna do it? Live without all 11 of us together?" But now I see what a good idea it was. We all get the individual attention we need, but still a buddy to pal around with.

Our adoption fee is $400 and will include our puppy shots up to date, our microchip, health certificate and transportation from Memphis to your area. Please email if you are interested in adding me or one of my brothers or sisters to your lives.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Olive, a Chicago Labrador Retriever/Whippet puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Whippet for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Whippet puppy 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 Labrador Retriever/Whippet breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Whippet rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
