Ainsle's Story...
Ainsle is a lovable, playful and snugly three or four-year-old, 27-pound, male Golden Retriever/Sheltie-mix looking for a loving guardian. Ainsle was abandoned; tied to a fence on Chicago’s Ainsle Street. He was rescued and fully vetted. Amazingly, his foster mom discovered where he came from and they said they didn’t want him anymore. He is sweet, fun, housebroken, non-destructive … almost perfect. He knows the commands sit, lay, jump and give paw and he takes treats gently from your fingers. He’s extremely food-motivated and easy to train. He loves walks, runs and playing outside – so he’d probably be happiest in a home with a fenced in yard. He loves his three walks a day, and he loves to play with other dogs. Because Ainsle has long hair, he needs to be brushed regularly and professionally groomed at least every other month or his fur gets matted. He is extremely healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies, distemper and bordatella vaccines, de-wormed, and heartworm-tested. His adoption fee of $125 rescued dogs. To meet and possibly adopt Ainsle, please contact Sheri at sheri@petraits.com or 773-777-2891. He is being fostered in Chicago. He is best in a home with children over the age of ten.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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