BIO: Hi, I’m Merrit! I’m a happy pup filled with hugs and kisses! I loooove my stretching and scratching time. I do great in my crate at night: my foster mom says I sleep like a log! I’ve been working hard on potty training and am getting better every day. My new smart-dog skills include: sitting, waiting, climbing stairs, and fetch. I love my toys and stuffies, and running and playing in the backyard. I’ve been friendly with All animals and people I’ve met. I just love the hustle and bustle of home life- the foster says I will be the perfect family dog!

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.
Details on our training program can be found here.
