BREED: Terrier Mix
AGE:  13 weeks
SEX:  Female
BIO:Hello friends! My name is Cookie! I am a very sweet but shy girl who is gaining more and more confidence every day! I might cower and run away when we are first introduced but the world is big and I am small and have had lots of changes in a short amount of time. Everyone who meets me has fallen in love with me. I am good with kids of all ages and very much enjoy playing with my beagle foster brother. Our favorite game is tug with our toys and sometimes he lets me win! He is also a great partner for a good game of chase around the yard. I really enjoy going on walks and have some pretty good leash skills, which is a plus! I’m not a big barker and it’s pretty soft when I feel the need to share. I am an excellent sleeper and my fosters let me have my crate right next to their bed. I do well in my crate for naps and at night. I am still working on potty training and my fosters have me on a pretty frequent schedule that has helped prevent accidents. I am a pretty smart girl and mastered the carpeted stairs both up and down in just 2 short day. I do love to be near people and cuddling when I can. My foster says I have a wonderful personality and a very gentle soul and will be a wonderful addition to any family!
Like all puppies, I am looking for love, patience and time to work on training with me so that I can the very best new friend! 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.
