Derek(ADOPTED!)'s Story...
DEREK HAS BEEN ADOPTED!Derek is an unbelievably cute, very sweet and affectionate 3-month-old male Shepherd/Collie type mix puppy. He was surrendered to an open intake shelter in Kentucky with his brother, Hansel. The family dog had pups and these fellows were the last two in the litter that they could not find homes for. Derek and his brother, Hansel are now safe in Chicago in a loving and nurturing foster home but they would love to meet their forever families soon! Derek is a playful and silly pup who will make a great companion for an active household with the time and energy to raise a young pup. Derek is in a foster home in Chicago and can be seen by appointment once an application has been received. His adoption donation of $375 helps to cover his neuter, age appropriate vaccines, microchipping and at least one round of de-wormer. If interested in meeting Derek, please email palsplace1@hotmail.com for an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Derek(ADOPTED!), a Chicago German Shepherd Dog/Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Collie for sale in Chicago, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Collie puppy 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 German Shepherd Dog/Collie breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
