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

Iris

BREED: Pit Mix
AGE:  6-7 years old
SEX: Female
BIO:  Hello, my name is Iris and I arrived on a transport back on Oct. 2nd. I was in terrible condition! Severely emaciated, full of infected bite wounds, and heartworm positive.
Fast forward three months and I look and act like a different dog. I have finished up my heartworm treatments and is going to be spayed shortly. That means I will be ready to find my furever home. I have blossomed in my loving foster home. I have been loved, spoiled, and nursed back to health.
My foster family had hoped to adopt me but even though I do okay with the resident dog, 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 her 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.
I absolutely adore kids. I would do well in a family environment where I can be the center of attention and soak up every drop of love I can.
CDR and the foster family think my perfect home would be in a quiet neighborhood with big backyard and a six-foot wooden 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!

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.
