Shamus's Story...
Shamus is one adorable boy ! Shamus was found as a stay on Mother's Day . We really thought someone would come looking for this precious boy , but sadly no one did . We know he is a poodle and we are pretty sure he is mixed with schnauzer - but of course that's just our best guess . He is estimated to be between 1-2 years of age and he is only 8 pounds . He will need to be groomed for the rest of his life and that is an expense that needs to be considered . Shamus is a happy boy that will follow you from room to room . He is housebroken , crate trained , walks well on a leash and is learning to like the car . He is great with the other dogs in his foster home and has a big crush on his foster sister Mavis . He barks at cats , but has not chased or tried to hurt them . Shamus loves a lap to sit on and is a very good boy and easy to care for . His one downfall - he can be a bit of a barker , but we are working on that . Shamus LOVES everyone he has met and has been a huge hit at the vet and local petstore . Homechecks are a requirement of our adoption process so we would like to stay in a 50 miles radius of his foster home in Aurora . Please go to animalheartline.org and fill out the required adoption application . You can also email his foster mom Jen at animalheartline@hotmail.com . No out of state adoptions , no exceptions . Shamus will be neutered on May 27 and will be adoptable shortly after . We hope to have his forever home ready and waiting . Due to his small size and for his safety we are seeking a home with no kids or kids over 8 years of age .

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shamus, a Lombard Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup)/Schnauzer (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup)/Schnauzer (Miniature) for sale in Lombard, or seeking a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup)/Schnauzer (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Lombard.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lombard 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 Lombard 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 Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup)/Schnauzer (Miniature) breeders who help with Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup)/Schnauzer (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lombard paves the way for another one to be saved.
