BREED: Shepherd Mix
AGE: 5 1/2 months
BIO: Hi, my name is Calypso! Being a puppy means everything is new, like stairs or walking on a leash but I am learning more each day! I can be a bit shy at times but have made a lot of progress coming out of my shell. I used to be a little afraid of all the dogs that live in the houses around my yard. They would bark and I would bark right back. Now we have a great time running up and down the fence line together. My foster Mom says that overall I am a very mellow girl but do have my playful times,too! I must admit that I will take your shoes any chance I can get! My other favorite activity is chewing!!!!! I am still a puppy and teething, so appropriate chew toys and some guidance is helpful! Not to brag but I am doing great with potty training. Never an accident when I am in my crate! I do appreciate an escort when I go out. Like all puppies, I will need lots of training, love and patience to become the very bestest new friend! If you are interested in meeting me, please send an email or fill out a pre adoption form 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 $300 for adult dogs aged 7 months and up and $375 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.
