Chip's Story...
This awesome pup just arrived from an over burdened high kill Southern Indiana shelter. What a great little dog! Chip is one of the many reasons that rescuing a dog can change your life. He came up afraid of his own shadow and is quickly learning how amazing life can be. It's so cool watching him discover his world and run back to you, all smiles and pride. He loves rolling in the grass, playing with his foster sister (a 10 year old female dog); and he is wonderful with the 2 old foster cats. He is also great with children as he is not an "in your face" kind of dog. This is one handsome little guy and he's the perfect size to take everywhere. He weighs 25 lbs., is 5-6 months and shouldn't get much larger. Our best guesses on breeds are Sheltie and Basset (or Beagle), but he's pretty much a Heinz 57. Chip still is a tad shy and takes life at his own speed (a few steps back, then a few forward, literally - until he finds it is safe), but he will make someone an exceptional new best friend. He is gentle, sweet, loving; and an A-class cuddler once he knows you. He is also smart, fun and surprisingly well-behaved for a puppy. He is crate trained, seems housebroken; and also seems non-destructive (he seems to know which are his toys). This is truly a great little dog and anyone would be lucky to add him to their lives. Please call (630) 917-0010 or email schroeder0010@comcast.net if you have any questions on adoption procedure or about Chip. An application must be filled out before you can adopt any of our dogs - it can be found at www.animalheartline.org and emailed to Chip's Foster Mom, Carolyn, at the above email address. Because we are a small group of volunteers (no shelter) and home visits are a requirement of adoption, local adoptions only (60 miles or so of Naperville/Chicago). No exceptions please. Thank you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chip, a Lombard Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Basset Hound puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Basset Hound for sale in Lombard, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Basset Hound puppy from a breeder in Lombard.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lombard 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 Lombard 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 Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Basset Hound breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lombard paves the way for another one to be saved.
