Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured Dogs

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


BREED: Lab Mix (?)
AGE: 14 weeks
SEX: Male
BIO: Ready, Set Go! My name is McGraw and I am full of love, play and puppy kisses! Even as  a young puppy, I am certainly one very sharp little cookie! I have nearly mastered this potty-training thing while also making great progress towards learning how to walk by your side on leash & sitting on command as well. I am highly motivated by treats and positive praise; I love it when my foster family calls me a “good boy”. That just gets my attention and tail wagging!  I was a stray with my siblings so the best guess is that I am a lab mix with possibly shepherd or beagle. What really matters though is that I have a big heart ready to share with my forever family!
On a more personal note, I am a pup that is ready to take life by the horns and jump right in! I love walking around outside and exploring all life has to offer. There are just so many interesting smells out there; adventure should be my middle name! I have been around other dogs, little and bigger children and even a cat. I did great with all of them! I also get along great with my foster family that has a senior dog. I really like him a lot and he does great putting up with my jumping and playing with his jowls. When he has had enough of my playtime, I respect his space and go play with my sister or chew toys. After running around, practicing the whole walking on leash thing, learning new commands and lots of playtime, I like to curl up on a soft blanket to nap. I enjoy napping in my crate and out of it as well.
Now as perfect as I sound, I am still puppy. I would love to find a family that has time to love, train and play with me. I am truly a great pup that is ready to learn and find my forever family! I hope I get a chance to meet you! If you would like to meet me, please send an email or fill out a pre application form and a CDR volunteer will get back to you just as quick as they can!

Start The Adoption Process Today

Begin by filling out an adoption application and we start pairing you with your perfect pooch!


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 $300 for adult dogs aged 7 months and up and $375 for puppies.  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.
