Fezziwig's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with dogs.

Fezziwig's Story...
No one loves people more than Fezziwig. Company is his jam. He’ll never turn up his snout to a movie on the couch, a game of fetch, or learning new tricks. And if you take out the brush, you’d better mean it. Seriously, this guy is all about the brushing. All that said, he’s also perfectly fine when left alone. Fezziwig’s foster family describes him as laid back, good mannered, and “the perfect amount of active.” A barker, he is not. You may be asking why anyone would ever give up such a gem of a dog. Sadly his adoptive family had financial issues and couldn’t afford to keep him.

Something to note about Fezziwig—but not be deterred by—is that he has Addison's disease, a lifelong condition that causes his adrenal glands to make an insufficient amount of hormones. It’s well controlled on medication and he can (and does) live a normal life.

Here’s all Fezziwig needs to start anew: an adult-only home where he’s the only dog, with a family who’ll give him all the brushing he can stand. Sound like a good fit? He’s ready when you are.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Fezziwig, a Chicago Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
