Peggy Sue-adoption pending

BREED: Shih Tzu/Boston Terrier Mix
AGE:  2-3 years old
SEX:  Female
BIO: Hi there! I’m Peggy Sue and I’m delighted to meet you. My foster mom and dad found me wandering in the woods, all alone and scared. They took me in, gave me a much needed bath and lots of nutritious food and rehabilitated me back to the trusting and loving pup I once was. I adore snuggling and will burrow into your lap for as long as you’ll allow. I’m very low energy but I do need a lot of physical affection after what I’ve been through. Because I was on my own for so long, I’m still a little scared of loud noises and fast things so a household without young kids would be best for me. I did spend some time with 6, 9 and 15 year old girls who were very gentle with me and I just loved them! So, older kids might be OK. I live with 3 other dogs who I get along well with, but I don’t play with them much so I’d be OK as an only dog too. I’m still trying to figure out cats, though. At first I thought they were my best friends but now I bark at them. I may get used to them over time, once I realize they won’t hurt me. Will you love me forever?
XOXOXO-Peggy Sue

Start The Adoption Process Today

Begin by filling out an adoption application and we start pairing you with your perfect pooch!


Chicagoland Dog Rescue Dogs

Our trained volunteers will determine which home among all applicants is the best fit for the dog, and the dog will be brought back to complete the adoption paperwork.  Our adoption fee is $250 for adult dogs aged 7 months and up and $300 for puppies.  The fee covers the cost of all medical care including all legally required inoculations, a fecal test and deworming (if required), spaying or neutering, and a microchip. Lifetime training is also included.


All our dogs have all legally required preventative inoculations, are microchipped and are spayed or neutered to control the repetitive birth cycle that produces more unwanted dogs. Most have been rescued from kill shelters in the Midwest, so their exact breed and age is often unknown. All dogs have been medically or emotionally rehabilitated as needed and are temperament tested to assess their fit with other dogs, cats and children.

Chicagoland Dog Rescue reserves the right to restrict adoption of a dog to potential adopters who live within a fifty (50) mile radius of Schaumburg, IL

Weekly socialization and basic obedience training is offered to all adopters FREE OF CHARGE for the lifetime of the dog, something no other group offers!  Training is crucial for happy dogs and ensures that our adopted dogs remain in their happy households forever.  A minimum of 4 training sessions is required for all adopted dogs.

Details on our training program can be found here.
