Otis's Story...
Meet Otis, a 1.5 year old border collie/cattle dog mix looking for an active family to call his own! Otis found himself at Chicago Animal Care and Control as a stray when Found Chicago rescued him a few weeks ago. Since then, he has been working hard on his basic obedience, overall manners, and even some energy outlets to keep him occupied, such as fetch and running alongside rollerblades and bikes. He's everyone's best friend and enjoys spending time with both people and other dogs. Otis will need a lot of mental stimulation and structure in his new home to stay out of trouble, as most smarty-pants dogs do! This guy is ready for action when you are, so come down and meet one of our favorite guys!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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