Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured Dogs

Any Breed. Any Size. Any Age. Any Reason.


BREED:  Chihuahua Mix
AGE: 2-3 years old
SEX: Male
BIO: Hello! My name is Toby and I am somewhere between 2 and 3 years old and a mere 17 ½ pounds. My foster Mom’s best guess is that I am a Chihuahua mix with a little Italian Greyhound possibly thrown in. I was rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control but not before I came down with the Canine Flu. I’m one of the lucky dogs who has fully recovered after an extended stay at the vet’s office. Now, I’m healthy and ready to find my new furever family!   My foster Mom want you to know that I’m a very sweet but shy little guy.I’m not terribly fond of being in a crate, but a treat helps me settle in. I appear to be housebroken and not much of a barker. When I do bark, it is quite loud for someone of my size. I will need a home without small children as I can get nervous with lots of quick movements. I do ok with other dogs but don’t like when they get in my face. What I really LIKE is to sit with my foster Mom and snuggle when she watches TV but a good run outside doesn’t hurt either. If you think I might make a good BFF, please contact CDR. Hope to hear from you real soon! -XOXOXO Toby

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.
