Shakespeare-ADOPTION PENDING!'s Story...
**UPDATE** NEW VIDEO on YOUTUBE (click here) . Here is their BABY BLOG (click here) and their original FACEBOOK BABY ALBUM & VIDEO and their FACEBOOK 6 1/2 WEEK OLD ALBUM & VIDEO (click here). The puppies are now 7 weeks old and nearly 10lbs a piece!! They are doing so well.



Shelby is a pure bred Black and White American Field bred English Pointer. She came into the rescue in mid January from a high kill shelter in Shelbyville, IL. She was very malnourished and needed to be treated for Giardia and is still being treated for Ehrlichia and Lyme disease (from tick bites). We were surprised to see her belly growing the weeks that followed and on February 27th, she gave birth to 8 beautiful puppies. Dad looks to be a Border Collie. Because we started treating her right away her pregnancy went very well and also her puppies are being treated along with her (through her breast milk) and growing like weeds. If she had not been diagnosed and treated via IBR's Tick borne disease standards, she may have lost many or most of her puppies.

***PUPPY ADOPTIONS*** Adopters need to have safe fenced in yards and be non-smoking homes. Some pups are showing pointing potential- but our goal for these kids are pet/working homes and being Pointer/BC mixes, they will be GREAT Agility candidates. ALL adoption info will be provided at the time of the phone interview. If you are interested in adopting this pet through our rescue organization, please go to the Adopting A Friend section to read about our pre-adoption policies and vetting protocols.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shakespeare-ADOPTION PENDING!, a Wood Dale Pointer/Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pointer/Border Collie for sale in Wood Dale, or seeking a Pointer/Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Wood Dale.

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