Duchess's Story...
Duchess is a sweet, mellow, quiet and friendly, 18-month-old, 65-pound, Hound/Pointer-mix looking for a loving guardian. Duchess was rescued from a West Virginia pound. She is living in a foster home where she has proven perfectly housebroken. She loves to cuddle in bed with her foster dad, or sometimes she chooses the couch. She loves being pet and rolls over for belly rubs. Duchess leans lovingly against you and melts your heart with her warm brown eyes. Duchess gives kisses and gets along with dogs her own size when properly introduced. Duchess will do best in a home with older children as she’ll bolt out the door if given the opportunity. She’s great on leash, but will pull if she sees a rabbit or squirrel. She doesn’t know any formal commands yet, but she is well-behaved in the home. Duchess is very healthy, de-wormed, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting Duchess, please fill in the on-line adoption application at http://famousfidorescue.com/rescueforms/machform/view.php?id=26727 and follow up by contacting Gloria at fido@famousfidorescue.com or 773-907-0305.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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