Fergie's Story...
Hi there, my name is Fergie and I am a Shepherd/Collie mix, I’m a medium sized girl – short but weigh about 64 lbs and I’m done growing. I am about 3 years. One day I showed up in the yard at a shelter but that shelter was a kill shelter. So either my owner left me or someone found me and just brought me there – who knows. But one thing that everyone knows … I was in that shelter for 2 whole months! But while I was at that shelter they gave me this test and I didn’t even have to study for it because I passed with flying colors! They said I ACED it! It’s called a temperament test and I have a really good temperament, does that mean I’m good? Because I really am. I’m a sweet, mellow girl – super quiet. Nobody hears me bark because I don’t bark. I like to just look at you and just check things out. And you’ll want me to look at you because I have the prettiest eyes, I do. They are the prettiest hazel color. My foster Mom and everyone says “what pretty eyes she has.” I like other dogs, kids & cats I have been around but not interested in. I know my commands – SIT, COME & STAY. I am not food aggressive and walk really well on the leash. I am house trained and now that I am out of the shelter, learning all the nice things that I find in the home such as a couch, dog bed and my foster Mom’s smile. She’s really nice but you know what would be really nice? My own forever home. So how about you call my foster Mom so you can see how pretty I am, look into my pretty, hazel eyes and then I can go to my forever home. Kisses, Fergie.

Fergie is located in her foster home in Aurora. Please contact Fergie’s foster Mom for more information and/or fill out an adoption application at: www.illinoisanimalrescue.org

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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