BREED: Heeler Mix
AGE: 9 weeks
BIO:Hi, my name is Barkley! My foster mom says that the only thing small thing about me is my size (currently 10 plus pounds). I have a HUGE personality! I am friendly to every person I meet. I LOVE my foster siblings and play hard with them every chance I get, despite the fact they are much bigger me (95 & 65 pounds). For a young puppy, I surprise my foster parents when I follow the big dogs out for their daily walk that is well over a mile. During my walks I greet everyone who stops to tell me how cute I am. I love to play with toys, run around the house and explore, and nothing makes me happier than falling asleep on my foster dad’s lap. I sometimes cry when I get put into my crate for the night but not always; I just want to join my family, including the resident dogs, upstairs. I have not had an accident in my crate for over 10 days. I am also working on potty training – it helps that my foster fur siblings show me the ropes. I chirp loudly when I want to get my day started, but my foster parents are grateful that time is getting later and later. Like most puppies I am a little mouthy, but I respond well to my foster parents’ “no bite” command. My foster parents think I will make a wonderful family dog and will brighten any home with my happy, loving personality. And like all puppies, I am looking for lots of love, lots of patience and time for training with me so I can be the very BEST ME! If you would like to meet me, please send an email or fill out a pre adoption application and a CDR volunteer will get back to you just as quick as they can!

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 $400-450 for puppies 7 months and up and dogs. 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.
