Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured Dogs

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


BREED:  English Setter
AGE:  14 weeks
SEX:  Male 
BIO:  Hi, my name is Pongo!  Of all my siblings, I am the only one that has a white coat with delightful black spots.  The other all have brown mixed in on theirs, but not me!  I look just like one of the 101 Dalmatians. Except I am a gorgeous setter puppy with just the right amount of fringy fur in all the right places.  And keeping this coat beautiful will take a bit of dedication for my new person/family.  Lots of brushing will keep me looking my BEST! I LOVE to run so a fenced yard is a MUST for me!  I can spend hours chasing anything that moves….bees, birds, butterflies and falling leaves can keep me busy!  I haven’t met a toy I don’t LOVE, especially the ones with squeakers!  I am just a puppy and I am in the teething stage and just so happen to think EVERYTHING is a chew toy-socks, shoes, books and even backpacks!  Oh, and outside….I just LOVE to eat wood chips, rocks, flower,etc. So until I outgrow this stage, I will need a pretty sharp eye to watch me.  There are two kids, 5 and 7 at my foster home and I must say that running and play with them is a lot of fun! I am working hard at potty training but am happy to sleep in my kennel all night without a PEEP!
I am being adopted out as a family companion only, so if you are looking for a hunter partner, I AM NOT IT!
Like all puppies, my new person/people will need to give me lots of love, patience and TRAINING to help me be the very best ME that I can be!  If you are interested in meeting me, please send an email or fill out a pre adoption application and a CDR volunteer will get back to 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 $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.
