My story

**KEANNE HAS BEEN ADOPTED!** Pal's Place would love to introduce you to Keanne (pronounced Key-On-E), an absolutely gorgeous female sable German Shepherd. Pal's Place rescued this stunning girl from an overburdened animal control facility in Kentucky. She is now in a loving foster home in Chicago while waiting to meet her forever family. Keanne is estimated to be 2 to 2.5 years old and weighs 80 pounds. KikI is a typical young German Shepherd. She is highly energetic, intelligent, and busy! She is profoundly sweet and eager to please and knows her basic commands. We cannot say for sure since her past is unknown, but her appearance suggests she is a working-line German Shepherd. She has more energy and more focus than the average GSD. Because of this, we feel she will do best in an experienced German Shepherd home. She is no couch potato and will not be happy with just long runs/walks or playing ball a few times a week. She will need a job to do and several hours of vigorous exercise a day, along with plenty of mental stimulation to channel her energy into something productive. She loves to play fetch, and she loves to play in the water.
Kiki will be a fantastic companion for guardians looking to participate or train in canine sports. She is more on the submissive side with humans, so she might not be the best match for Shepherd enthusiasts looking to train in Schutzhund. However, we feel she would excel in other sports such as agility, dock diving, herding, search and rescue, tracking, flyball, etc. Keanne is being fostered with several other dogs and gets along well with her foster housemates. She is housebroken and crate trained as well! She is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Unfortunately, she did test positive for heartworm but has completed treatment and is now ready for her forever home.
If you think you can provide Keanne with all she needs to thrive, please reach out to us today! With the right guardians and environment, she will be a once-in-lifetime dog!
Keanne is spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date with vaccines. She is taking monthly flea 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.

Please do not apply unless you are willing and prepared to welcome a dog into your home within three days of applying.

Why adoption is a great option

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