Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured Dogs

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


BREED: Yellow Lab/Husky
AGE: 9 months
SEX: Female
BIO: Hey everyone! My name is Riley! I’ve been with CDR a little over a month now and am ready to find my forever family. So let me tell you some things about me… I am crate trained and house broken! My foster mom says I am very smart and that I have a lot of energy. I love toys and treats and long walks through the park. I’m not very snuggly, but my foster mom says it’s because I like to keep busy! There’s no time to rest when there is so much to explore! I like other dogs and would do best in a home with a dog that could keep up with my energy level. I can sometimes play rough and wouldn’t want to upset another dog as I learn how to be part of your pack. I am sweet with people but have a tendency to nip when I’m playing or too excited to see you. This is a trait the husky breed is known for and will get better as we continue to work on my manners with proper training. When I asked my foster mom what her ideal family is for me she had two pretty easy requests… She is hoping my forever family will be one with husky or other working breed experience so that they understand me a little more than someone who isn’t use to my kind of personality. She also is hoping my forever family will take advantage of the free training classes that CDR offers. While I am a good girl already, I will need you to work with me to become even better! I have a lot of potential and a lot of love to give. I just need a family who has the time, energy, and patience to help me become the very best version of me!

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 $375 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.
