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


BREED:  Black Lab Mix
AGE: 1 years old
SEX:  Male
BIO: Hi, my name is Leo and I am one lovable lab! The nice people at CDR took me in way back in December and I’ve been searching for my forever family since.  Now, I find myself looking for a foster home until my new family finds me because my foster Mom is having surgery and I will be too active post op for her!  I am an active boy who loves to run and play,…and I am crate trained and housebroken!  I would make a great play pal for another like-minded dog (older dogs don’t seem to like my activity level) or for a family with a fenced in yard and would make someone who is a runner a GREAT running partner!  Since I’m such an active and sometimes clumsy boy, only a home with kids 13 years and up will be considered!  I have come along way since I arrived in Chicago.  I am working on my manners and getting better every day. I am looking for a family that will take me to training and continue to work with me to help me be the best boy I can be!   If you think you know my family, please share my story with them. If you think you ARE my family, click the pre-adoption application link below. It will put you in contact with my foster who would love to set up a time for us to meet!
Lots of love and lab kisses!
– Leo

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 $250 for adult dogs aged 7 months and up and $300 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.
