Gemma's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Gemma's Story...
Meet Gemma! She is about 4 months old, and weighs just over 10 pounds. She looks like a wire-haired terrier mix, (with maybe some Schnauzer tossed in) but that is just a guess. We do know Gemma is a well socialized, easy-going, affectionate pup who likes attention. Her first foster home has young children, and she did very well with them. She is reportedly on her way to being potty-trained, and slept quietly through the night in her crate. Gemma is fine with other dogs, and like most puppies, wants to play! She would be very happy in a home with another young or playful dog.

We think she will grow to be a medium-size adult (30-40 lbs.) but cannot make any guarantees. So only those willing to take pot-luck in terms of what breed or size she grows into should apply! As with any puppy, she will need steady supervision to attend to her potty training, obedience training, general socialization and exercise. Therefore, she needs a home with a stay-at-home person who will be available to meet her needs.

You can meet Gemma at her current foster home, Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd. (847-251-6750, wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you will want to take her home on the spot, since she truly is a gem, please know you will have to submit an application for adoption.

Gemma's adoption fee of $325 includes vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, routine deworming, microchip and spay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gemma, a Mt. Prospect Wirehaired Fox Terrier puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Wirehaired Fox Terrier for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Wirehaired Fox Terrier puppy from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect 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 Wirehaired Fox Terrier breeders who help with Wirehaired Fox Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mt. Prospect paves the way for another one to be saved.
