SEX:  Male
BIO:  Hello, my name is Sparky! I am so excited to get to tell you all about ME, and what I have been up to since I came here from Alabama. I am staying with my foster family, and my foster fur-sister, and we have been having so much fun just learning to be good puppies. As you can see from my pictures I have the cutest little face, with some amazing white stripes, and the softest furry coat. According to my foster mom, even my White Whiskers are Cute! She Loves me what can I say?? I have been working on my potty training and doing a good job but still need more training. It is incredibly cold outside (SO Much Colder than Alabama) so we have to make several trips outside so our paws don’t freeze! We have also been working on crate training, and I am doing much better. It is not my favorite place, and I might cry for a couple of minutes but I stay in there at night, and whenever my foster family is not at home. I know that it is the safest place for me because I am still a puppy. I get better every day. I LOVE toys and love having a fur sister to play tug of war with. We can’t decide which are our favorite toys, but the squeaky ones get my attention every time!!! I am a playful puppy who also loves to snuggle, and will take belly rubs whenever I can get them. I am incredibly sweet and looking for my forever person or family to share all of my kisses and cuddles with. I am still a puppy, and need Lots of love, patience, and continued training to be the BEST me possible. I would love to meet you, so 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! See you soon!

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.
