Meet California 

BREED: Pit Mix
AGE: puppy
SEX: Male
BIO:  Hi there! My name is California- (Cal for short), and I’m looking for my forever home. I was one of the puppies found in a box and turned us into the Chicago police station who then reached out to CDR who took us all in!  We were really lucky to be kept together after being tossed out in a box at 4 weeks old.  Out of all my siblings I like to show the others what to do!  I lead everyone outside in the morning when we wake up, when it’s time for my brothers and I to go exploring I’m always in front and ready to start the fun- and when it’s time to take a nap or hang out in our crates I’m the first one running into our room.

I’m super playful with all of my foster brothers and sisters.  I’m pretty darn smart and VERY treat motivated.  I’m crate trained, doing really well on house training, I love kids, and other dogs! I’ve never been around cats but at my age I think I’d do well.

If you think you could be the perfect match for me, please fill out an adoption application and come meet me!

Tail wags and kisses-Cal

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 for adult dogs 7 months and up, $300 for senior dogs, and $525 for puppies. ($700-$800 for bonded pairs.) 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.
