BREED: ?Shepherd/Hound/Black mouth cur/Lab
AGE:  19 weeks
SEX: Female
BIO:  Hi, my name is Ginger!  When I came here from Alabama, I was very shy and timid. I have been here just about 3 weeks, and my foster family says I have come out of my shell and I am much braver. It takes me a little time to warm up to people, but once I do, I love them! They tell everyone I am the sweetest pup, and my tail hasn’t stopped wagging since I arrived. I LOVE to play, enjoy a good belly rub, and am good at stealing shoes too. I am getting better every day at walking on a leash, but I do best when I have another dog to walk with. I have been walking with a neighbor dog and am quick to pick up on her social cues and tend to be on the submissive side. I would love another dog to play with. My human foster brother and I have had so much fun together too and I cuddled with him at night, so older gentle kids are okay too. I am inquisitive and do get startled when I hear new noises or if there are sudden unfamiliar movements, so I need a safe place to be when outside. If you have a fence, that would be amazing!  I am also doing great with potty training, but I don’t always tell you I need to go, so I’ll need someone to watch for the clues. I really don’t want to go in the house, but I am sometimes too shy to let you know I need to go out. One of my favorite pastimes is snuggling on the couch with my foster family. Boy, do I love a good cuddle. I am still working on crate training – it’s a bit scary to be in there. While it’s not my favorite place to be since I love to hang with people, I am sure with more time, I will get used to it. My foster family thinks I am a great girl and that I am the perfect pup! As with all puppies, I will need patience, understanding, and continued training to become my best self. If interested, please fill out an application, and a CDR volunteer will get back to you.
Tail wags and puppy snuggles,

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.
