Jimmy "The Follower"'s Story...
Jimmy the Follower is one special guy. He is 9 weeks old (2/20). He was rescued from some strip mine area in southern Illinois and put in an outdoor pound. When we went to rescue him, he rolled onto his back as if to say he knew he was about to die. Poor little guy didn't realize then he was on his way to being safe. He was so sick and thin that when he went to the vet he had a fever and needed antibiotic shots. Jimmy was beginning to perk up by the end of his first day and passed more roundworms than he had space for in his belly.

He passed his worms and his fever subsided and he is just an indescribable little guy. Awesome. Jimmy will not be lucky to be adopted, it will be the other way around. He got his nickname because we rescued 8 other puppies from the same litter and Jimmy had to just stay close to us as we moved the pups in and out. He stayed right there.

Jimmy is one of the most special dogs we have rescued, find out how to meet him below.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jimmy "The Follower", a Plainfield Blue Heeler puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Blue Heeler for sale in Plainfield, or seeking a Blue Heeler puppy from a breeder in Plainfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Plainfield 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 Plainfield 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 Blue Heeler breeders who help with Blue Heeler rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Plainfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
