PETRA's Story...
Petrie is a three month old border collie / boxer mix. Petrie is a white with black markings and his color is simply gorgeous. His coat is soft. Petrie loves hugs and other dogs too. He plays with his brother and sister and has just the best time. Petrie is happy, smart and ready to have a family to call his. His foster family is working on his potty training and Petrie is certainly catching on quick.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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