Scruffy's Story...
Scruffy is an adorable, 10-12 month old male Benji type dog! He most closely resembles a Border Terrier, but is mixed with something else. He's a little guy and only weighs about 12 pounds. Scruffy is a very sweet little guy, but needs a very special home. Scruffy appears to have been quite abused during his short life and he is very afraid of new people. He does warm up within a day or two, but he will need to go to a patient and understanding home. Once little Scruffy trusts you though, you have a friend for life! He's a very affectionate guy and really knows that meaning of lap dog. He will sit on your lap for hours! He's very quiet and well behaved in the home and is crate trained and housebroken. Scruffy would love a home of his own soon, could it be yours? Scruffy's adoption donation is $250. This donation helps to cover his worming, initial vaccines, microchip and neuter. He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Please email animaladoption@hotmail.com or call (773) 615-9864. Most animals are in foster homes and animals in foster homes will be seen by appointment only.We are unable to hold an animal for any reason.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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