Dexter's Story...
Dexter is an adorable, friendly, unique and happy 4 month old male Border Collie/Bearded Collie mix. Dexter's mother was rescued from a hoarding situation and was removed form a home with 25 other dogs. His mother was the Border Collie and his father the Beardie. Dexter is 4 months old now and has proven to be an exceptionally intelligent and eager to please dog. Dexter has even had a professional temperament assessment and received excellent marks, however his evaluator felt he would make an especially great agility or competitive obedience candidate. Dexter is living in a foster home right now and he's already learned several commands. He does fabulous with other dogs and cats. He is an independent little guy though and does't always appreciate very young children wanting to pick him up and fawn over him, so he'd probably do best in a home with older children. Please come and meet Dexter today! He'll make a wonderful companion for one lucky household!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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