Gunner (2)-adopted

BREED: Boxer/Pit Mix
AGE: 13 months old
SEX: Male
BIO:  Hi, my name is Gunner. My family adopted me when my sister and I were just 3 months old. It didn’t take long before they realized there was something very special about me! I love everyone I meet and my family says I have a very gentle soul. I quickly earned the nickname, “Ferdinand the Bull” because I am the only dog my family had ever met that would stop to smell the flowers!
I am potty trained, crate trained, and know my basic commands. Some of my favorite things to do are run as fast I can, gather sticks and snuggle in for a good petting!
My family is looking to find a great new home for me because my sister and I feed of each others energy and that can be a lot to handle! A home without cats is necessary since I have very high prey drive! I am good with kids over 10 years old. While I am good with most dogs, I would benefit from being an only pet at this time. My perfect home….it would have a fenced yard to run and play in, NO CATS, and a home with a family who has experience with the bully breed and are committed to providing the structure and positive reinforcement to maintain my gentle disposition.
XOXOXO- Gunner

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.
