Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured Dogs

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


BREED:  Pit Bull Mix
AGE:  18 months-2 years
SEX:  Female
BIO: Hi, my name is Misty or Misty May as my foster family so fondly calls me.  I was found as a stray and no one came to find me and my number was truly up when CDR swooped in to save me! I am in a great foster home with a foster brother I love playing with and would love to find a home of my own that has a friend waiting for me.  I am the perfect candidate for doggie day care since I was a play group rock star at the shelter.  I am housebroken and trying to learn that it is ok to be in the crate when no one is home to be with me.  I can be a barker when I’m in there so no shared wall housing for me!!!!  I am extremely sweet and a quick learner to boot!  I came to my foster home not knowing what sit or give paw was and now I do!  I love to play ball but haven’t quite figured out that I have to drop it once I bring it back for you to throw it again.  I’m sure I will have that all figured out soon!  Because I am still learning not to jump on people when I meet them, a home without small children would be best for me!  With lots of love, patience and training, I will be am AMAZING companion!
I am listed as a pit bull mix but the truth is I look like a mini Great Dane and have the great Marmaduke ears to boot.  I have a great lope to my walk and am quite the jumper to catch the ball when it’s airborne.  I am also a great cuddler and always interested in a neck massage.  It makes me melt into the floor!
If you would be interested in meeting me, please fill out a pre application, email or call and my foster family 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 $250 for adult dogs aged 7 months and up and $300 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.
