Facts about Victory

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Meet Victory! She arrived in Chicago November 1, just in time for Game 6 of the World Series. Like the Cubs, this little gal is a real champion. She looks like a white Lab puppy, but has big, pointy Chihuahua ears. Based on her current age (5 months) and weight (10 pounds) we think she will grow to be a small-size adult (20-30 lbs.) but we cannot make any guarantees. So only those willing to take pot-luck in terms of what breed or size she grows into should apply!

Victory watched the Cubs win Game 6 in a foster home with young kids, so we know she is good with kids.
She loves attention and wants to follow you around and be where the action is. She is not a huge fan of being outside-- after doing her business in the backyard she sits near the door, wanting back inside. Once inside, she loves to curl up in your lap for a nap. She is used to sleeping in a crate, and is well on her way to being potty-trained.

Victory gets along fine with other dogs--she is friendly, not playful-- but prefers human companionship. She would be fine as the only dog, as long as she has someone home part or all of the day to complete her potty training and provide her with a lap to lounge in!

You can meet Victory 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 winner, please know you will have to submit an application for adoption.

Victory's adoption fee of $350 includes vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, routine deworming, microchip and spay.

About Adopt-A-Pet, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

ADOPT-A-PET is an all-volunteer non-profit animal shelter/adoption agency dedicated to saving the lives of lost, abandoned or otherwise homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and placing them into permanent, loving homes.

ADOPT-A-PET provides a safe refuge and a second chance for unclaimed animals from various municipal pounds and, space permitting, accepts other homeless, neglected or injured animals from their rescuers.

ADOPT-A-PET was founded in 1981, and has since saved the lives of over 15,000 animals. All animals at Adopt-A-Pet are found permanent loving homes. Animals remain with us for as long as it takes to find them a suitable permanent new home.

ADOPT-A-PET does not own a shelter facility. All of our animals are boarded at co-operating animal hospitals or in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted by their new families.

ADOPT-A-PET provides all necessary medical care for every animal. All animals are health-checked, vaccinated, treated for medical problems and spayed/neutered.

ADOPT-A-PET is available for educational speaking engagements to schools and community groups in Chicago or the suburbs to promote proper pet care, compassion for animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment only, after an application has been submitted.

Occasional public weekend adoption events are posted on the Home Page of our website: www.adoptapet-il.org

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process: Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment, after an application has been submitted.

How to start the process: Contact us by email or phone. An adoption counselor will return your message within 1-2 days. You will be asked to fill out an application that will ask for personal information about your family, your home and about the kind of pet you're looking for. Vet references, personal references and landlord information (if applicable) is required. You can also download an application from our website. Once you return the application, an adoption counselor will call you back for a more thorough interview, again within 1-2 days. Sometimes it may take a little longer as we're all volunteers and sometimes it gets very busy. Assuming the pet you're interested in appears to be a match for you, a meeting will then be set up. For some animals, a home check may be required. If an adoption takes place, you will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee. Each animal's individual adoption fee is posted in its description on our websites.
