Babe's Story...
Babe is a gentle, sweet and loving 11 to 13-year-old Malinois or Shepherd-mix looking for a loving home. Found as a starving stray near the forest preserves in Niles, Illinois, the animal control officer thought she might have been a coyote at first glance – that was from a distance. Up close, Babe is an older fawn-colored dog with worn teeth, and an older dog’s limited hearing and sight. She had no micro-chip, no collar with tags, and no tattoo … and after much searching her original home could not be found. So, she is looking for a new home where someone appreciates the merits of a senior dog. And, despite her age, she can still bolt away quickly when a fence is open… so she’s looking for a home with a securely fenced yard, or someone who can take her on walks. She is a little sensitive about being touched around her neck, but is otherwise cuddly and enjoys leaning against you and being pet. Her back legs shake a bit when she’s standing, but she likes to go on walks and appears to be housebroken. She seemed fine with my dog-friendly foster cat and does not appear to react to other gentle dogs. Babe is up-to-date on vaccines, de-wormed, heartworm-tested and on preventative. She also had bloodwork done and the vet said it looked good for a healthy senior dog. Her adoption fee of $75 will go towards her veterinary care.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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