My story

**FOSTER HAS BEEN ADOPTED!** Foster is a social, outgoing, and good-natured pup looking for a forever home. Pal's Place rescued Foster from an overburdened animal control facility in rural Kentucky along with his six littermates. He's now in a loving and nurturing foster home in Chicago, anxiously waiting to meet his new family. Foster is approximately 14-16 weeks old and weighs 25 pounds. Considering his current age and weight, we expect he will mature to 55-70 pounds when fully grown. Adopters should be prepared to care for a larger, active dog. His exact breed mix is unknown, but it is known that he is genuinely the best breed; rescued! Foster's littermates all looked quite different. Foster's appearance suggests Boxer and maybe some hound in their lineage; one puppy looked like a Black Lab, another like a Border Collie, and the remaining pups resembled Mountain Curs. Both parents were most likely mixed breeds, so Foster and his siblings are a proper muttley crew! Given his breed mix, Foster will most likely be an intelligent and energetic dog who will thrive as a member of an active household. He is crate trained and is coming along nicely with his housebreaking when kept on a regular schedule.
Please remember that puppies this age and size need frequent potty breaks (every 3-4 hours or so) and lots of playtime and attention throughout the day for the next several months, so please consider if you truly have the time for a puppy before applying. Foster will be a fantastic companion for one lucky household.

Why adoption is a great option

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