BREED: Pit Bull Mix
AGE: 10 years old
BIO: Hi, my name is Bernie Sanders but you can just call me Bernie. I’m 10 years young and an absolute lover of all people. I especially love tummy rubs and full body massages! Some people may say 10 years is sooooo old but I do love to play with my rope toys, antlers and Kongs. And even though it’s been said I still have a lot of pep in my step, I do enjoy a soft dog bed for a nap or two or three during the day.
My foster family says I am VERY well-mannered and know several commands and best of all, I walk well on a leash.
Come meet the lovable, adorable ME at the Saturday adoption event and see for yourself!

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.
