COMMENTS:  Hi, my name is Maverick.  I was found as a stray and no one came to get me.  My number was just about up at the shelter when CDR stepped in and rescued me.   I am a boy who will need exercise daily to keep me happy!  If you are a  runner, I’m your guy!  I would do best in a home where I am an only dog and I prefer not to have dog friends.  I’m an alpha kinda guy so continued training is a must and I will need an owner who can be firm and provide with me structure.  I am also very sweet and looking for love and a warm place to lay my head.

The easy dogs go first but I’m worth your investment in time and love!


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 $400-450 for puppies 7 months and up and dogs.  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.
