BREED: English Setter
AGE: 14 weeks
BIO: Hi, my name is Uma and I am as pretty as pretty can be! Of course, I have my share of dots and spots but I have the softest, silkiest black ears with just the right amount of fluffy fur on them that makes them just the best for petting! Like most puppies, I have energy to BURN! How do I take care of that? Play, chase, tug of war and exploring my backyard. I have the most interesting things back there! Birds, butterflies, leaves and even bees just waiting for a good game of chase, so a fenced yard is a MUST for me! Sometimes the 2 kids who live at my foster home come out and play with my brothers and sister and I and we have GREAT fun doing it! But I must admit, I do have a fondness for toys…especially ones with squeakers! Can’t get enough of the squeaky ones! And being a young puppy means I am teething and haven’t figured out yet that things inside, like books and shoes and backpacks, and things outside, like rocks and flowers and sticks, are not meant for chewing! So a keen eye to watch me and gently guide me to things that are OK to chew is a necessity! Like all puppies, I will need lots of love, patience and training to be your new best friend! Even though I am a setter, I am being adopted out as a family companion only and NO hunting dog for me! If you are interested in meeting me, please fill out a preadoption application or send an email 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 $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.
