My story

Morgan is a very shy, gentle, sweet and timid 18-month-old, 50-pound, male Border Collie/Pointer-mix who was rescued from a Missouri dog hoarder. Morgan is good with other dogs and people of all ages, but has no leash training yet. He’d do best in a quiet home with a fenced in backyard away from city noises. These dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. To meet and possibly adopt a dog, please contact Ray at or 847-639-6801. Their adoption fee of $200 benefits rescued dogs. They are being kenneled in Union, Illinois.

Why adoption is a great option

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