AGE:  1-2 years old
SEX:  Female
BIO:  Hi! My name is Cheyenne and I am anywhere from 1-2 years old but no one really knows for sure my exact age! When I first came to my foster family, I was a VERY skinny, shy pup and wasn’t really sure how to act like a dog. After a few weeks, I have come out of my shell a little and showing everyone what a SWEET girl I really am! I get along well with my two foster fur siblings and they are teaching me how to be a dog. I have met cats at the shelter in Alabama and ignored them all but if I lived with one, I really don’t know if I would want to hang with it or chase it?!? But, I am very calm and good with kids! I feel safe in my crate, but don’t like to go in there with the gate closed and will sometimes cry at night. I REALLY love to snuggle and my favorite part of the day is meal time! I sometimes have had some accidents in the house because I don’t like going outside in the cold, but I’m working on it! I am looking for a home with other calm canine buddies, kids and grown-up people that will understand that the beginning of my life was pretty hard and I will need time to build up my confidence and trust in the outside world. But I promise to give you lots of love and companionship and all the snuggles you want! If you would like to meet me, please 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 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.
