Punky's Story...
Punky is a beautiful, healthy, friendly, playful and energetic, three and a half-year-old, 60-pound, female, shepherd/labrador-mix looking for a loving guardian. Punky is an active girl who loves to play with other dogs. She loves the outdoors, going for runs, walks and careening around a fenced-in yard after squirrels, or just sitting around and enjoying nature. She also loves her humans, gives kisses, knows the commands sit, down, and shake, and can catch a treat mid-air. Punky is living with me and the rest of my dogs in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood until she finds a new home of her own. Punky is well-behaved and non-destructive in the home. She is perfectly housebroken, and can also be crated. She plays well with other dogs and is a welcome addition to doggie daycare playgroups. Punky loves all seasons, playing in the sand, in the leaves and in the snow. Although she doesn’t know how to swim, she loves to drink water from a running faucet and in her former home she would jump in the tub until her folks turned the water on for her. She has a healthy appetite and loves to crunch on red bell peppers with her foster mom. Punky is equally content to snuggle on her dog bed or in your bed at night. While she hasn’t met any bunnies or cats in my home, she hasn’t even noticed the cockatiel who calls to her from her ceiling perch. To meet and possibly adopt Punky, please contact me directly at sheri@petraits.com or 773-777-2891. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. She is very healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested, on monthly preventative, de-wormed and microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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