Prince's Story...
Ohhhhh Prince. We met him on our last trip to Chicago's Animal Care and Control, where his owner had just relinquished him the day before. He was absolutely filthy, skinny, full of ticks and fleas, had sores on his body, and a clear line around his neck where a rope or collar had obviously been tied for a long time. A dedicated volunteer at ACC took him for a bath, which made a huge difference! She uncovered a gorgeous and friendly husky (?) mix with white fur, blue eyes and huge ears who is about 1 year old. He weighs just under 40lbs but is quite thin and needs to put on some weight.

Despite all this and obviously having had a tough former life, Prince is really sweet, affectionate and engaging with people, great with the other dogs and is really playful. He loves rolling in the grass and just being around people and dogs. He got his name because he has black eyeliner like the singer, but also because he's a former yard dog who will soon be living like a prince in his forever home!


We will continue updating Prince's bio with more information as we learn more about him, but in the meantime please check out NLOL's facebook page, or fill out an adoption application to make Prince a part of your family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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