Avery's Story...
Avery is our 10 week old boxer / border collie retriever mix puppy. Avery's mom was a boxer. Avery is a beautiful shiny black with bright white. He is just a sweetheart. Avery is in a foster home with other dogs and gets along with everyone. He is so playful. He also has 2 brothers and 3 sisters that are available for adoption.

He is working on his potty skills. Avery is ready for a HOME.

Avery's adoption donation is $550 which helps to cover the neutering, shots, bordetella (kennel cough), flea/tick prevention, heart worm prevention, vet examination, certificate of health and transportation.

Avery is fostered in Tennessee. He will travel to his new home once he has been adopted. We use a weekly transport to the northeast and a twice monthly transport to Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota.

Our primary source of funding comes from this adoption donation. This donation allows us to rescue other dogs in danger of being put to sleep, injured or sick dogs and dogs that have never known the comfort of a home

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Avery, 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.
