Iris-I need a foster or furever home ASAP!

BREED: Pit Mix
AGE: 7-8 years old
SEX: Female
BIO: Hello, my name is Iris and I arrived on a transport back in October of ’21. I was in terrible condition and had clearly had a hard life! Severely emaciated, teeth are almost completely gone, full of infected bite wounds, and heartworm positive. Fast forward I look and act like a different dog. I have blossomed in my loving foster home. I have been loved, spoiled, and nursed back to health. I am spayed, have finished up my heartworm treatments and I am ready to find a soft place to lay my head, my furever home.
My foster family had hoped to adopt me but I don’t do well with other dogs and it’s clear I really should be the only dog in my forever home. No one is sure what happened in my past, but based on all the old bite scars on my body, my fosters and CDR think it’s time for me to be able to fully relax and know I am someplace safe with no other dogs to worry about.
My foster says I am crate trained, housebroken, and a well-behaved girl. Quick movements can make me nervous so I would do better in a home with no children.  CDR and the foster family think my perfect home would be in a quiet neighborhood with a backyard and maybe even a privacy fence. They think giving me the security of a privacy fence will help me settle in and feel safe. If you would like to meet me, please fill out a preadoption application and a CDR volunteer will get back to you just as quick as they can!
Cuddles and kisses-Iris

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.
