Meet Maeve-adopted

BREED: Lab Mix
AGE: 6 months
SEX: Female
BIO:  Hi! Maeve here! Just hanging out with my foster family, waiting for my forever home. My foster mom keeps telling me I’m the sweetest, gentlest pup around! I love playing outside and taking walks with my foster brothers. The small boy in the house is about my size and we like to hang out together, he always smells like food, and food is one of my favorite things! I’ve been learning new tricks, like “sit” “paw” and “down” Foster mom says I’m smart and will do anything for a treat. (hehe) When I’m not playing outside, I LOVE to chew! I’m learning quickly what I’m allowed to chew and what I’m not, but you might want to keep things away from me that are off limits, because I’m still learning. I love shoes a LOT, but apparently, those are one of the off-limit things (sigh). I don’t really like my crate, and I cry when I’m put in there. I’d much rather sleep on the couch, or in a comfy dog bed. I’m quickly learning where to go potty, so the only time I’m put in my crate is if my foster family leaves the house for a little bit. Do you have cats? I find them very interesting! I keep trying to play with the ones here, but they aren’t interested. OH, one more thing you should know, loud noises scare me, a lot! So even though I do really well on a leash, if I hear a lawn mower or a noisy car, I will definitely try to run and hide! It’s just so scary! My Foster mom is trying to teach me not to be afraid, but for now, I’m a little skeptical. Anyways, time to go play with my foster brothers. Hope to meet you soon! I love being here, but I’m looking forward to finding a family of my own! Hopefully, with kids, I really like kids! Like all puppies, my idea home has lots of love, patience, and time to work on training with me so I can be the very best new member of your 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 for adult dogs 7 months and up, $300 for senior dogs, and $525 for puppies. ($700-$800 for bonded pairs.) 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.
