Buddy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Buddy's Story...
Buddy is a very sweet, tail-waggingly happy, energetic and fun, four-year-old, 48-pound, male, tri-color one-eyed hound/shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian.

Buddy loves other dogs! However, he does have a strong prey drive so he’s not good with cats or other small animals. He is happiest when he has the opportunity to exercise daily. He’s not an apartment dog; he’d prefer a home with a yard where he can run and play. He also loves walks and jogs. He already knows the commands sit and down and takes treats very gently from your fingers. He is housebroken and crate-trained; he’s also good in the car.

Once Buddy has had enough exercise, he’s a really great dog. He’s gentle, loving and calm in the home. He actually loves when you sing to him.

He could fetch a stick for hours if you let him. He’s probably best in a home with teens and adults who enjoy an active lifestyle.

Buddy is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, de-wormed, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. Buddy lost an eye due to an injury years ago, but he gets around just fine. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog. If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting him, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net or 708-224-1900. He is being fostered in Chicago, Illinois.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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