Franklin's Story...
Franklin is an energetic, very sweet and loving one-year-old, 44-pound male Vizsla/Doberman-mix looking for a loving home. Franklin has some neurological damage so he has some balance problems, and repetitive movements like running in circles. Despite his challenges, Franklin loves to run around and play in his foster mom’s yard like the happy boy that he is! He is an attentive boy and has already learned to sit on command. Franklin gets amped up around other animals, so he’s looking for a quiet home as the only pet. Rather than a crate, because of his special needs, he is best confined in a small area, and is working on his housetraining. Sadly, Franklin was relinquished to the pound with heartworm disease. He has finished his treatments and is now ready for a new home. To meet and possibly adopt Franklin, please fill in an adoption application at http://www.ildoberescue.com and you can follow-up to ask questions or meet him by contacting his foster mom Sandy at siouxland@comcast.net or Pam at (847) 277-1082. His adoption donation of $225 benefits the rescued pets of Illinois Doberman Plus Rescue. Franklin is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-free and on preventative, and treated for fleas and worms.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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