Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured Dogs

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




BREED: Lab Mix
AGE: 15 weeks
SEX: Female
BIO: Hi, my name is Gemma and I am a gorgeous, redheaded lab mix. I am a smart, funny girl with a lot of ENERGY and LOVE to give!  I love attention from adult humans and want to be pet by them all!  It takes me some time to get used to being around children or other pets but eventually I do warm up to them. I am learning to live with my foster parent’s cats but we aren’t too close just yet. I am still working on being potty trained and going for walks. I think I can get the hang of it soon but will just need someone with patience and lots of treats! 😊 My foster parents want you to know that I am very well-behaved during car rides!  I like to run around and play so it would be nice to have a house with a fenced-in yard. I am learning the sit command and working on others,too. My foster parents know that I especially love to play with tennis balls and toys that make noise!  The squeeker the better! I  do like to follow my foster parents around the house to see what they are up to but most of all I enjoy cuddling up next to someone to take a nap.!  I am looking for a family that knows raising a puppy is a marathon, not a sprint and that I will probably make a few mistakes but with lots of love, training and patience, I will AMAZE you!  If you would be interested in meeting me, please send an email or fill out a pre adoption application 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 $475 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.
