Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured Dogs

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


BREED:  Pit Mix
AGE: 28 weeks
SEX: Male
BIO:  Hello everyone!  My name is Guinness but the kids in the neighborhood have started calling me Toby and I kinda like it!  I am a pretty perfect pup according to my foster Mom …I am housebroken and crate trained and will even hang out in my crate on my own for breaks and naps.  I can be a little shy about taking food out of your hand but have NO food aggression issues.  I do LOVE other dogs and am very content to follow my fur sister’s lead. And, I am always happy when the kids in the neighborhood want to hang with me and cuddle!  I am ok on a leash but still need to work on my basic skills.  I don’t think I destined to be a very big guy cause I only weigh 38 pounds at 7 months old!  I am like all puppies, even the older ones, and am looking for love and kindness, patience if I make a mistake, and some who will have time to work with me on training so I can be the very best ME!  And!…if you throw in another patient resident pup, I would really like that, too!  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 $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 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.
