My story

**TILLY HAS BEEN ADOPTED!**Pal's Place rescue would love to introduce you to Tilly! Tilly is a female mix breed rescued from a high-intake, overburdened animal control facility in Kentucky. A DNA test revealed that 7 different Hound breeds make up 44% of her makeup while the remaining percentage is split equally between Husky and Boxer with a dash (2%) of Tibetan Mastiff to combine for a perfect pooch. This sweetie pie is estimated to be about 5 years old and currently weighs around 65 pounds. Tilly is a social and energetic girl that will be an excellent match for an active family. She loves people, loves to cuddle, and loves to hug! Like most dogs of her breed type, she's very affectionate, curious, and a tad mischievous at times. She doesn't seem to know any basic commands but she is very intelligent and extremely food motivated so teaching her the basics should be a breeze. True to her hound nature, she can be vocal at times. Because of this, we feel Tilly is not suited to live in an apartment or condo. Tilly does well with other dogs and is being fostered with several others. She can be a bit of an alpha female at times though and comes on a bit strong when meeting new dogs, so she would not be an ideal addition to a home with an existing female and is most compatible with males or as the only dog in the home where she can be the queen. After the initial introduction, Tilly loves to wrestle and play with her canine companions. We do not know how she interacts with cats. She is crate trained housebroken and can be trusted with free-run of the home when left alone. Tilly is anxious to meet her forever family, could it be yours?

Tilly is spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date with vaccines. She is taking monthly flea and heartworm prevention. Her adoption fee to the rescue is $375. She is currently in a foster home in Chicago and can be seen by appointment only after submitting an application.

Why adoption is a great option

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