Harper's Story...
Introducing Harper.

We first met Harper when we were visiting the shelter in Ripley, Tennessee. It's a notoriously bad shelter, as many shelters in the rural south are. This particular shelter was rat infested and has a horrible history of neglect and abuse of the animals there. Somehow Harper survived there for months until we met her and brought her into our program.

She was slow to warm, and heartworm positive, so we knew that this would be a long road to finding her a perfect forever home. Now she has completed heartworm treatment and, through the love and patience of her foster home, she has become a happy and secure dog. It's Harper's turn to find a family now. Harper is fostered with another dog and cats in her current home. She adores other animals and we would say another canine companion is a requirement for her to be her happiest. She loves to play, but mostly enjoys lounging on the couch with her best friends. Harper would be most comfortable in a quiet home without a lot of activity. While Harper is very friendly with children, she would do best in a home with older children simply because all of the commotion that comes with little ones makes makes her nervous and causes her to do a lot of hiding. In a quiet environment, her personality really shines. Harper is incredibly sweet and cuddly. She is house trained and crate trained.

Harper's adoption fee is $500 and includes all of her yearly vaccines, fecal exams, completed heartworm treatment and current heartworm prevention, microchip, spay surgery, and transport from Memphis to your area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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