BREED: Shih Tzu
AGE: 5 years old
BIO: Hi—I am Max. My former family also called me Maxi Bear because I am fluffy and cuddly like a teddy bear! My family could not keep me anymore because they had new jobs and were gone 10-15 hours per day. My foster Mom wants me to tell you that I am housebroken, good with small dogs (not sure about big dogs—but she thinks I am good with them too) and cats. She has been told I good with children, too. I weigh only 16 lbs and I walk well on a leash. There is one thing that she also wants me to tell you—I do NOT like being in a crate! I bark and scratch while in it. My foster Mom is now keeping me in the bathroom and hallway with a baby gate. I am an easy going little guy that will not take much space in your home. If you are looking for a little companion, and you think I might fit the bill, contact Chicagoland Dog Rescue ASAP. My foster mom said that a very lucky family will be adopting me as I am such a good boy!
Hope to meet you real soon, Max

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.
