Lucy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Lucy's Story...
Lucy is a very responsive, energetic, well-trained, gorgeous, playful, lovable and loving, two-year-old, 55-pound, female brindle and white Am Staff/Boxer-mix looking for a loving guardian. Lucy loves to work! She happily and proudly shows off what she knows. She already knows the commands: sit, down and paw, and takes treats gently from your fingers. Lucy gets along well with people of all ages and can be selective of her doggie friends. She has proven to be perfectly housebroken and crate-trained. She is wonderful in the car and great on leash. She is a wonderful jogging or biking companion. Lucy is looking for someone with the time and energy to continue her training, provide her with plenty of exercise, love and leadership. She will respond with plenty of kisses, hugs, tail wags and loads of loyalty. Lucy is very healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested, on monthly preventative, and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care & Control. To meet and possibly adopt Lucy, please contact her foster mom Sue at sue@bellyrubklub.com or 630-542-3559. She is being fostered in Lombard, Illinois.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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