Banjo- ILlinois's Story...
Banjo has a very sad story with a happy ending. He was bought by a lady in Arkansas as a puppy and when her health declined, she was moved to assisted living and the family left Banjo in the home and and then sold the home with him in it. The new home owners threatened to shoot him so a gal that does rescue heard about his story saved him and contacted us. Banjo is AMAZING-- he is the best of both breeds, is very sweet and playful. What could be better then a Pointsetter?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Banjo- ILlinois, a Wood Dale English Pointer/English Setter dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English Pointer/English Setter for sale in Wood Dale, or seeking a English Pointer/English Setter dog from a breeder in Wood Dale.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wood Dale 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 Wood Dale 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 English Pointer/English Setter breeders who help with English Pointer/English Setter rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wood Dale paves the way for another one to be saved.
