BREED: Lab Mix
Age: 11 months
COMMENTS: Hello Everyone! My name is Phoenix. I am an 11 month old black lab mix weighing in at a mere 35 pounds. I’ve heard people say that I am the PERFECT size! I hope that means that someone might give me a home soon! I do have some flaws though…I am a scared kind of a guy. I am very afraid when I’m on a leash and I am a afraid of people when I first meet them, too! Once I get to know someone, I enjoy being petted and massaged. I do like other dogs and I’m hoping to find a safe, loving and patient home that will work with me on gaining confidence and trust in people. A nice lady with CDR took me to get a bath at the pet store and I loved it! I sat nicely in the tub and even let them dry with the loud dryer, no problems! I will need someone who is very careful when the let me out and talk me for a walk since I have escaped my collar a couple of times because I was so afraid!
I might take some extra work, but I think the family that loves me will get a great reward!
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 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.
