BIO:Hey everyone, I’m Franklin! I’m super attentive and love it when you say “Me”. Mostly because I love to show you my beautiful brown and blue eyes. Not only do I love treats and that little clicking sound they make, but I also do well when rewarded with toys, belly rubs and lots of “Good boy!” One of my favorite times of the day is when it’s time to eat. My table manners include, “sit,” “stay,” and “go eat.” Sometimes I do it even without that pesky leash. Oh, that’s right. I love going on walks, but I guess I need some work walking on a leash. When left to my own vices, I like to eat sticks, acorns, leaves and rocks. Who am I kidding? I’m a puppy and I LOVE to chew! But if I have something to chew on or friends to play with outside, I’m much more interested in them. My foster mom has also been working on “Leave it” and “Drop it.” Let’s just say I’m much better at “Drop it.”
My potty training is going really well but I tinkle just a bit when new people come to see me. I love being around people, even the little ones, although I haven’t met many of them. I love making new furry friends and I handle correction really well when I get on their nerves.
I pee when my foster parents say “Go potty” but my foster mom says I hold my poop hostage. I don’t poop in the house, so I don’t know what her problem is! My foster parents take turns waking me up in the middle of the night to go potty but I’m pretty sure I can sleep through the night if they let me.
At nighttime, when my foster parents say it’s time to go to sleep, I’m ready for bed and go into my crate with no trouble at all. During the day when my foster mom is working, I need a little soothing before I completely settle down. But I also don’t mind going in there for a break when the door is left open for me so it’s not so bad. If you’re looking for a pup that can play hard but also crashes hard, I’d love to be yours.

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.
