Meet Harrison -adopted

BREED:  Retriever MIx?
AGE:  27 weeks
SEX:  Male
BIO:  Hello! My name is Harrison, and according to my foster mom, I am the sweetest, most ADORABLE puppy EVER! I have an amazing soft black furry coat, with just a touch of white under my chin, the cutest floppy ears with some fun spikes of hair, and the most beautiful eyes. I am not only good-looking though, I am incredibly sweet and smart. I have been working on my crate training, and doing Great! I stay there at night, and whenever my foster family is not at home without complaint. I actually will just go in there when I feel like chilling and I have mastered potty training! I LOVE to go for walks, but I need some additional training on my leash skills. I know that when it is time to eat, I need to sit and wait for my food. I ADORE my foster fur-sister! We love to play with toys and run in the yard together. Toys are the BEST, especially if they SQUEAK!! I love to watch TV, especially if you put on the dog agility competition!! I have a lot of energy and love to play, but I also love to lay in your lap and chill. Car rides are amazing, and I let my hair blow in the breeze! Well, only a tiny breeze my foster mom will only crack the window because she’s afraid I will fall out of the car. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE getting belly rubs, butt rubs, ear rubs? Well , all rubs really. I will take them as often as I can get them!! My foster mom says that I am doing an amazing job so far, but remember I am still only a puppy. I need time to work on training with me and lots of love and patience so that I can become the very BEST me possible. If you think you might want to be my forever person or family please go fill out a pre-adoption application, and a CDR volunteer will get back to you just as soon as they can. I can’t wait to meet you!

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.
