Gavin's Story...
Gavin is a very handsome Aussie or Border Collie/ Coonhound mix puppy in need of a family! Gavin was turned into a pound in southern IL with his 6 siblings when homes could not be found for them. He is a very happy, friendly and loving puppy that will be a great family pet. He's currently about 20 pounds and is 3.5 months old (as of 2/2/10), so he will be a fairly large dog when fully grown.Gavin loves other dogs and people and would love to go home today! He is crate trained and working on housebreaking.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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