Any Breed. Any Size. Any Age. Any Reason.


BREED: Terrier Mix
AGE:  10 weeks
SEX:  Female
BIO:  Hello! My name is Greta and I am a very special little girl. I was born with only three legs! However it doesn’t slow me down at all! I live with my brother George, my foster brother Loki, 2 cats and my foster mom. Even though I’m only 3 months old, I am almost completely housebroken. I very rarely have accidents in the house anymore. To help me my foster mom will carry me out to our yard first thing in the morning since I’ve been holding it all night. Since I’ve been getting carried(pampered!) I’ve had fewer accidents. My foster mom tells me that I’m very smart! Besides being almost housebroken, I already know how to sit when asked! I’ll sit before being asked if I know you have a treat for me! This week,  my foster mom is teaching me how to walk on a leash. I’ll do it but it is NOT one of my favorite things to do!  BUT, I do love chewing on toys and bones so my foster mom makes sure I have plenty of both. I have a nice fenced in yard to explore and run in but once I’ve gone potty and played for a little bit, I prefer cuddling with George and Loki.  My favorite is cuddling buddy is my foster mom. She gives the best belly rubs! My foster mom tells me she believes I will be happiest in a home without small children and with experienced pet parents. I do startle easy and can be nippy if woken up quickly. I am crate trained but like most puppies I don’t enjoy being in my crate. I get along with all the other animals that I live with but sometimes the boys play a little too rough with me so my foster mom feels that I would most likely be happiest in a home with a senior pet or a more mellow player. My foster mom tells me I’m very smart, very loving and very loyal. I’m looking forward to meeting my forever family! If you would like to meet me, please fill out a preadoption application or send an email 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.
