Checkers-adopted

BREED: Lab/Pit Mix
AGE:  20 weeks
SEX:  Male
BIO: Hi, my name is Checkers! I’m a big pup with a super gentle soul and the sweetest eyes that are just begging for me to be loved. While my pictures are amazing, I’m even better looking in person! I’m getting along great with my foster fur brother. He’s a little guy, so I’d love a fur sibling of any size, even one that doesn’t directly under me. Despite his little size, we do play a LOT. I’m definitely all puppy so I would love to be in an active family that is excited to train with me so I can be awesome! I’m already learning so many things! I know how to sit, touch, and am doing pretty well with come and stay. I love going on walks and am not too bad on this leash thing. Did you know it’s a really big world out there?! Sometimes I get a little scared but with a little reassurance, I move along well. I don’t mind my crate and I think I have this potty training thing down. If I whine or start pacing- outside we go and I’m taking care of business. I can’t wait to meet my new family. If you think yours is the one, please submit a pre-application on the CDR website and a volunteer will get right back to you!

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.
