Prancer's Info...

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.

Prancer's Story...
Prancer and her eight brothers and sisters arrived in Chicago during the first winter snowstorm, so we named them after Santa's reindeer! The pups were about 9 weeks old Dec. 2, and just weaned. Their mom, Elsie, a forty-five pound very sweet shepherd mix, is also available for adoption. Prancer's dad is unknown, so only those willing to take pot-luck in terms of her ultimate appearance and size should apply!

Prancer is an independent and outgoing little girl, the life of the party. She gets along well with other dogs, and would love a doggy playmate, but she is also fine on her own. She is almost house trained-- after being in a foster home with a doggy door she knows to go outside! Because she is so young, she will need someone home during the day to keep her on a potty schedule and keep her stimulated, since she is also very smart. Prancer will be ready for puppy school soon, another adoption requirement.

You can meet Prancer at Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Road in Wilmette, during normal business hours (847-251-6750). Although she is so much fun you will want to take her home on the spot to make your holidays complete, please note you will have to submit an application for adoption, and that we can't guarantee she will still be available.

Prancer’s adoption fee is $375, which includes a vet exam, DHAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, microchip, deworming, flea and tick preventative, heartworm preventative, and spay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Prancer, a Mt. Prospect Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

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