Apple's Info...

Apple's Story...
*We will only adopt within a 60 mile radius of Chicago, IL*

The adoption fee for Apple is $275.00.

Our adoption fee includes: spay, age appropriate shots, microchipping, and any other medical care Apple may need while she is with us.

Apple is looking for a foster or forever home.

Apple is a female Border collie/Corgi mix who is around 1.5 years old. She's good around kids and other dogs.

Poor Apple was dumped at an Animal control facility with her pups, another rescue took the pups and left the mom behind.

09/13/11 UPDATE from Apple's Foster Family: Apple has adapted to house-life better than anyone could have expected! She is incredibly affectionate; always following closely behind "her human" and quick to curl in a ball at your side, sprawl across your lap or rest her head on your feet. She loves meeting people on the street (ESPECIALLY kids) and is always very polite and gentle with strangers (human and dogs alike). She learned 'sit' and 'lay down' in a matter of minutes and I imagine she could learn just about anything else given how smart she is. She walks great on a leash and has impressed with her potty-training abilities as she is left for 8+ hours a day and she has free reign of the apartment! This girl is going to make an excellent addition to any family with so much love to give.

*Obedience training is mandatory for all dogs adopted from our rescue. The choice of trainer is up to the adopter, unless otherwise noted in the bio. We do require an obedience deposit check in the amount of $200.00 at the time of adoption.

This is a refundable deposit. The check is stapled to the adoption contract and held in a file until we receive proof of completion for your training program.

The check will not be cashed if you complete training and provide us with proof, at which time the check is mailed back to you. The check will only be cashed if you do not complete training! *

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Apple, a Calumet City Border Collie/Corgi dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Corgi for sale in Calumet City, or seeking a Border Collie/Corgi dog from a breeder in Calumet City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Calumet City 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 Calumet City 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 Border Collie/Corgi breeders who help with Border Collie/Corgi rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Calumet City paves the way for another one to be saved.
