Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured DogsAny Breed. Any Size. Any Age. Any Reason.
COMMENTS: Hi, my name is Tia. I am a very, sweet and loving dog. I love the humans in my life like no other dog can. All you have to do is look at the way I look at my foster mom. I love her and she is the best! I have a lot of energy and must find a home with a fenced yard. Yards make me happy…I can spend hours out there just walking around and sniffing things. This is a great way to keep me out of trouble! I love to play fetch and would make an awesome agility dog with the right training.
I am a bossy kinda of girl who tends to not listen to younger kids, I steal their food, and jump all over them, so a home with kids under 12 is out for me. I have a mind of my own and am very smart. In the past, I had learned how to get away with things but through training, I have learned some great new behaviors. I am looking for a strong pack leader that will reinforce that training or I will revert back to my old ways. I am also looking for someone who will give me time and understand that I’m just testing things out and not give up on me! I am crate trained and overall pretty quiet. I come with training classes that you must attend to keep me on track. I love going to doggie day care but I am known as a rough player. I had a best friend/foster brother Taz ( a rat terrier) who liked to play that way, so we got along great! I can also be a couch potato and just be content to lick peanut butter out of my Kong (favorite thing on this earth!) I hope to find a home of my own with own people soon…I’m tired of being the foster dog and not the family dog!
Sadly but patiently waiting for my forever home-Tia
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.
