Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured Dogs

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




BREED: Bully Mix
AGE:  2 years old
SEX:  Female
BIO: Hi, my name is Violet and I am about 2 years young! I was found as a stray and ended up at the scary shelter where it turned out I had heartworm.  But don’t be sad for me because a wonderful foster scooped me up and I’m all better now! I love to snuggle up with my foster mom and get all the belly rubs I can get! Foster Mom keeps telling me I’m too big to be a lap doggo but I don’t believe her, I can sit in her lap just fine. AND GUESS WHAT!!!  I am officially heartworm negative!!!!
My foster Mom says I am the sweetest and bestest girl!! I love everyone I meet and can never get enough! Foster Mom has grandbabies that are little and I want to love them so much but I am big and like to jump so we are working on me being calm so I don’t knock them over with my love. Even though I am excited and may jump I am easily corrected and make my foster momma so happy!   I would love to play with my furry foster sissy but I think she’s too bossy and she scares me a little. Foster Mom is trying to integrate us little bit at a time. I am a very good girl but still have some silly puppy antics up my sleeves. My foster mom loves that I go to bed nicely and to my crate when asked!  I have very good manners and know how to ‘sit’ and ‘wait’.  I don’t like this ‘down’ one so much but we’re trying really hard and I’m getting there but I will need someone who will be dedicated to continuing my training so I can be the best me possible. 
I love the snow! It’s a white wonderland of stuff to jump in and eat.
I want to tell you so much more about what a good girl I am, but I want to show you.  I can’t wait to meet you! 

Start The Adoption Process Today

Begin by filling out an adoption application and we start pairing you with your perfect pooch!


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 $300 for adult dogs aged 7 months and up and $475 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.
