BREED: Pit mix
AGE: 11 weeks
BIO: Hi, my name is Tank! I’m pretty cute right…. so cute that humans can’t resist kissing my little snout and snuggling me. My foster mom says I’m her favorite foster puppy ever! Shhhh, don’t tell the others, we don’t want to hurt their feelings! I sleep in my crate in her room at night without a peep. I also potty immediately everytime I go outside. I’m not potty trained. I’m off to a great start though. I don’t have long fur and I’m from Alabama so if you could get me one of those cute little sweaters for when I go out, I would be really grateful, brrrrrrr Chicago is cold! My tail doesn’t stop wagging when I get to play with my foster family’s dogs. They have a young big dog and a very old small dog. I do great with both! I’m new to living in a house with humans so I get really nervous sometimes and tremble a little when the humans pick me up or if I’m somewhere new and scary. Each day, I get a little more brave and a little less nervous. My forever family needs to understand that I will need a lot of socialization so that I can grow up to be a confident boy. I know it’s hard for humans to get out and socialize right now,
during these times of Covid, but I would make a great coffee run buddy and lots of trips to the pet store would be great for me too. I’d also really love to socialize and meet some new friends in a puppy class. With some positive training (no yelling, I’m a sensitive boy), lots of love and patience, I am going to grow up to be the most amazing boy!

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 $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.
