Sheba's Story...
Sheba is a very beautiful three-year-old, 42-pound shepherd/basenji-mix looking for a wonderful new home. Inside the home, Sheba is a delight … playful, sweet, loving, cuddly, rolling over for belly rubs and giving lots of kisses. She sits on command, and takes treats gently. She is crate-trained and housebroken. However, on our walks or even in the yard, she is easily aroused … scanning the horizon for other dogs … and reacting pretty badly… barking, and lunging, or charging the fence. So, she is looking for a dog-experienced home, without other pets, with someone willing to work with her to build her confidence, and continue to desensitize her to other dogs. She may never be dog-friendly, but she can certainly improve. In the meantime, when I walk her … I want to keep her and other people, and dogs safe … so I avoid other dogs, and I use a gentle leader head harness to better control her. Sheba is healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on preventative. Her adoption fee of $65 benefits rescued pets.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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