BREED: Pit Bull terrier
AGE: 5 years old
SEX:  Male
COMMENTS:  Odin is a 5 year old Pit Mix.  I am trying to find him a new home.  I need help! I found out about a dog whose owner died and the daughter was going to euthanize because she didn’t feel like caring for the dog. I drove out to Rosemont and picked him up. He is currently boarding at a vet. I can’t keep him at my house because I have three dogs so I’m looking for help finding him a new home. I don’t want to take him to ACC. This dog has been kept in a kennel for most of his life. He is diabetic but his previous owner didn’t take him to the vet until he was ketotic and almost died. He has muscle atrophy in his back and legs from being in a kennel so much. I absolutely love this guy but because of his history, he has a few things that seem to be triggers. I just know with some mental stimulation and training that he will be INCREDIBLE. He is so good on our walks and carries around a toy. He wags his whole body when he sees me and kisses me on the chin. The people working at the vet say that when they try to put him in his kennel he is standoffish. I personally have not had this issue with him so I’m wondering if they are just rushing it because they are so busy. (I can hardly blame the poor guy for not wanting to go back in this kennel.) I am so worried that because he’s diabetic, because he needs a little behavior work, and because he’s a Pit that all the cards are stacked against him. He needs a home that will show him what love means! 

If you have the time and heart to work with Oden, please call (205) 936-9748 or e-mail  to talk more about Odin.

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.
