My story

Meet Bellatrix! This beautiful girl is approximately 1 year old and sweet as can be. She came into our program from a high kill shelter in Alabama, and we soon discovered she was expecting puppies, which was a total surprise to us. She was a great momma and puppies are doing wonderfully, but now it's time for Bellatrix to find her place in the world!

Bellatrix appears to not had a ton of socialization throughout her young life and can be reserved when she first meets a stranger. She seems to be especially reserved around male strangers vs. female, although she has warmed up and become great friends with both genders so far. She is food motivated and becomes extremely affectionate when she warms up and demands to get her rubs! She is becoming more and more social with the staff at Found Training Center every day and can easily be won over with snacks.

Bellatrix prefers dogs that are respectful of her boundaries and allow her to get to know them before engaging. She has made dog friends in previous foster homes, so we are confident that she could coexist and enjoy a fellow canine family member if the right one came along. Once she gets comfy with a dog, she is bouncy and goofy and enjoys a good romp.

Bellatrix is currently working on training skills with Found Training Center in Chicago. Her adoption comes with 50% off of all training services at Found and 15% off at Mojo Dog Co. throughout her lifetime. please contact brittney@caninesandcompany.org for more info on Bellatrix.

Why adoption is a great option

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