Skip's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Skip's Story...
Skip is an extremely sweet, soft, gentle, loyal and loving, three to four-year-old, 50-pound (skinny), female, purebred American Foxhound looking for a loving guardian.

Skip was rescued from a pound in West Virginia. Luckily she found a wonderful foster home in Chicago where she is enjoying the company of three other dogs who she adores. She’s even playful with visiting puppies … and her goofiness comes out when you offer her a treat. Other than that … she’s so calm.

Skip has a unique gait … that of a dressage horse. Perhaps that’s how she got the name Skip. She is perfectly crate-trained and working on perfecting her housebreaking. She’s otherwise great in the home … no chewing. While she loves dogs over 20 pounds, she’s not that good with tiny dogs or cats… she thinks they are fun to chase.

Skip bears the scars of an unknown past … scars on her nose, rips in her ear and a chunk missing from her lip. But she’s as sweet and gentle a dog as I’ve ever met. Her biggest fears in life are loud noises … lawnmowers and cars … she’s not aggressive, she just pulls to get away.

Skip is learning to sit on command and takes treats incredibly gently from your fingers.

Skip is healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on heartworm protection. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits Famous Fido’s Rescue Group. To meet and possibly adopt Skip, please fill out the on-line adoption application at: and follow up by contacting her foster mom Rose at or 773-343-7716. She is being fostered in Chicago, Illinois.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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