Meet Rusty-adopted 

BREED: Pit Mix
AGE: 14 weeks
SEX: Male
BIO:  Hi everyone! My name is Rusty! My foster momma is always calling me a cuddle bug and telling me I am so very smart! I learned the command “sit” in three hours, I LOVE to play with my two foster pup brothers, and I think human kids are pretty neat, too. On Easter, I met my foster mom’s SEVEN human nieces and nephews ages 5 through 15, and they just thought I was the best and couldn’t stop giving me all the attention. I enjoyed every bit of it and was very patient and calm. I don’t mind car rides, and I just sit calmly in the back seat with my puppy seatbelt on, of course. I am also told I have excellent listening skills and am a loyal pup. So, I promise to be someone’s best friend! When my foster mom leaves the house, I don’t bark, but will most likely be waiting for you at the door when you get home. I am working on letting you know when I need a potty break by hanging by the door by the door and giving a vocal signal, so that seems to be working well and have master house training!!!!Oh, and did I tell you I even sleep through the night without a crate? I can’t wait to meet my forever family and show you all my tricks and give you lots of cuddles! Like all puppies, I am looking for love, patience, and time to work on training with me so I can be the best new member of the family! If you would like to meet me, please fill out a pre-adoption 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 $400-450 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.

***** All breeds listed are a best guess or based on information from our rescue partners and are not guaranteed*****

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.
