BREED: Mixed Breed
AGE:  puppy
SEX: Female
BIO: 🐾Hi there, I’m Onyx, the ultimate cuddle bug and adventure enthusiast rolled into one adorable package! I’m ready to shower you with kisses and tail wags And let’s not forget playtime – it’s my absolute favorite! Give me a squeaky toy, and I’ll keep myself entertained for hours or engaging in a friendly tug-of-war with my canine buddies, I’m all about spreading joy and laughter wherever I go.

 But wait, there’s more! When the sun is shining and the great outdoors are calling, you’ll find me leading the pack on our daily walks. With my leash in tow and my buddies by my side, every stroll is an adventure waiting to happen. Whether we’re exploring new trails or just sniffing around the neighborhood

 Now, while I love human interaction I also like to take naps and night time  I curl up in my cozy bed, snuggle my favorite blankie, and drift off into dreamland without a peep. Yep, you heard that right – I’m a champion sleeper! No midnight barking but I do like to wake up early. I’m all about those sweet, uninterrupted dreams.

So, if you’re looking for a furry friend who loves everyone, adores going on walks with her buddies, and can’t get enough of playtime, look no further! I’m Onyx, ready to bring endless love, laughter, and tail wags into your life. Let’s make memories together! If you are interested in meeting 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 for adult dogs 7 months and up, $300 for senior dogs, and $525 for puppies. ($700-$800 for bonded pairs.) 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.
