Rita's Info...

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

Rita's Story...
Hi, I'm Rita. CDR brought me and my brother Rudy here from Kentucky to find us homes. Rudy was adopted right away, but I had some hair loss due to mites, so CDR wanted to make sure I was healthy before finding me a home. The doctor has given me a clean bill of health, so I'm ready for my furever home!
I am a puppy, so I will need some training to teach me how to be a good family member. CDR provides free training classes for life, so that will be very helpful because puppies are a lot of WORK. I am working on potty training, but still need some practice. I like to play with toys, especially the stuffy kind with squeakers. I also LOVE to cuddle with my foster mom and sleep on her lap. She says I'm a sweet, world-class cuddler and she would probably keep me if she didn't already have 4 dogs. I try to play with the 4 big dogs that live here, but they don't want to play.
If you are looking for a cute puppy like me, come meet me a the adoption event Saturday from 10:30-2:30 at the Petco in Schaumburg.
Hugs & Kisses,
Rita

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rita, a Schaumburg Australian Cattle Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Schaumburg, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog puppy from a breeder in Schaumburg.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Schaumburg 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 Schaumburg 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 Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Schaumburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
