Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured Dogs

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


BREED: Pit Bull Mix?
AGE:  12 weeks
SEX: Male
BIO:  Hello, I’m Charley! I’m so excited to be your adventure partner! I love to meet new people and dogs, but I don’t bark or pull! If my foster mom tells me “leave it” or “come on”, I keep walking past dogs, people, or things I shouldn’t pick up. But if I get the chance to meet someone, it makes my day (and their day too – so many people comment on how happy I am!). I have already had so many opportunities to socialize and learn with dogs, humans of all ages, and a lot of stimuli happening. I am happy to play with my foster family but am also a pretty independent pup who can entertain myself. I am still working on being fully potty trained, but I’ve only had a few accidents in the house (no poop accidents!) and as long as I’m on a fairly consistent feed and walk schedule I’m getting there quickly! I’m eager to learn! I almost completely know ‘sit’, ‘leave it’, ‘stay’, and my name. I sleep soundly through the night in my crate (no barking, whining, or pottying as long as I’ve been taken out one last time before crating!). In fact, I have never had a problem being in my crate throughout the day and love a good nap or play session in there. I like to play-bite as all puppies do, but I’m working on the command ‘gentle’ and making progress. I am so ready to meet my forever family and have so much love to give. If you’re looking for a loyal, funny, adventurous, eager-to-learn pup, I’m your guy! If you’d like to meet me, please fill out a pre-application on the CDR website and a volunteer will get right back to you!

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 $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 breeds listed are a best guess or based on information from our rescue partners and are not guaranteed*****

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.
