Meet Etsie-adopted

BREED: Boxer/Pit Mix
AGE: 12-13 weeks
SEX:  Female
BIO:  Hi everyone! My name is Etsie, and my foster mom says I am an absolute sweetheart. I’m a very curious pup, so I like to follow her around wherever she goes and explore alongside her. Playing with my toys (especially their squeaky ones!) is just the best! Chew toys are also a favorite especially since I’m still teething. The only thing(s) I love more than my foster mama and my toys are my foster siblings, Ralph and Cleo! My foster mom says Cleo and I are truly two peas in a pod–we’re both playful, energetic, and spunky little gals. We’re always running and romping around and being just plain silly together, so she’s really teaching me how to be a good playmate and puppy in general. Although I do have lots of puppy energy, I’m always ready to curl up next to my foster mom and siblings when playtime is over for a nice, long snooze/cuddle session. I am working on potty training and crate training and doing well at both. As for commands, I already know “sit” and am working on “stay” and “come.” While on our walks around the neighborhood, I’ve been nothing but friendly to everyone I’ve met, be they humans or other dogs. I am the perfect mix of energetic, smart, and loving. My foster family is going to miss me so much, but they know with continued training and lots of attention and love, I’m going to be the most amazing girl and new addition to my forever family! If you would like to meet me, please fill out a preadoption 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.
