Important Note

Teenie is best friends with Weenie. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Pupdate 7-6-2017: The Munchkins are doing GREAT!! They are now fully vetted and just the sweetest puppies. These girls are getting a lot more confident and can run big off leash and would benefit from romps at the local dog park. They also need a good privacy fence as little Weenie can climb out of a 4 foot chain link fence. Both are super playful and get along great with all dogs and they love kids!

Teenie & Weenie were in an over crowded shelter in Southern Illinois and were going to be killed for space when I heart about them on 5-22. We scrambled to work on a rescue and they came to the Chicago the next day. I was able to contact the man who left them at the shelter and he stated they are 3/4's Pointer and 1/4 Brittany. At 7 months old Teenie the larger pup is 27lbs and Weenie is 19.5lbs. She also has an endearing under bite and with her smaller size she reminds me of an adorable Chihuahua. The girls did not get a lot of socialization and were left in a pen most of the time in their last home- but they are just stink'n adorable playing with each other in temp foster care. They are food motivated so I am building their trust with good food and treats. After their shampoo, both just wanted to snuggle up next to each other in my lap.

What I need is a foster home that can continue helping them adjust to life in the suburbs and also to help with their meds. In a couple of weeks they will need their blood work and spays. It was raining when they arrived so most of the photos in their Facebook Album they are a little wet.

Who We Are...


Our Mission Statement
It is our mission to provide a temporary safe haven and rehabilitation for field bred English Pointers and English Setters found homeless in shelters. In an effort to find the dogs homes, we also hope to educate the public on dog health and training. We also work to dispel such myths as “a neutered dog won’t hunt” and “you ruin a hunting dog by letting him live in the house.”

About IBR
Illinois Birddog Rescue, Inc. is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to saving, transporting, vetting, fostering, and adopting homeless American Field-bred English Pointers and English Setters - a group of canines commonly known as BIRDDOGS. We are funded solely from adoption fees and donations. Since our slow beginning in October of 2001, we have placed over 500 dogs and puppies.
Most of our rescue dogs are in foster care in the Chicagoland area with a wonderful group of volunteers who dedicate their free time and energy to help the dogs get ready for their forever homes. While in foster care, the rescues live in a home and are socialized with other dogs, people, children, and cat tested if possible. To assure that they will make good house pets, our rescues are also taught basic manners, are housebroken and crate trained. Unfortunately many of the rescues that come in have been abused or are in poor health. We take care of any medical issues and give these dogs lots of TLC.

On occasion we test the dogs hunting instinct using planted pigeons or quail to see if they have any scent pointing ability. Seeing one of our birddogs pointing a bird by scent alone is a beautiful thing. We have successfully adopted out our dogs to hunters as long as they are spoiled rotten house pets first.

While our organization focuses on pointers and setters, we also work in conjunction with other birddog groups across the country who save Brittanys, German Short-haired Pointers, and Setters by helping them transport their homeless hunters to safety.

Our Adoption Process...

Illinois Birddog Rescue, Inc. requires all of our dogs to be placed first and foremost as pets. We will place dogs into hunting homes, but they must live indoors as part of the family. We also require fenced in yards for all of our purebred dogs so that they may self-exercise safely.

All of our foster homes give the rescue dogs lots of TLC. While in foster care our dogs will be:

socialized with other dogs, people, and children
cat tested if possible
crate trained and housebroken
evaluated for hunting potential by scent pointing planted game birds
We take great pride in making sure all of our rescue dogs are healthy before being adopted. All of our rescues will have been:
spayed or neutered
tested for heartworm and treated if necessary
protected from parvo/distemper and vaccinated for rabies
We ask for a $325 non-negotiable adoption fee for our adult dogs and $375 for all dogs less than one year of age.
When adopting one of our rescues, we want to make sure both you and the dog will be a good match. Here's how our procedure works:

Complete and submit the online adoption application
Your application will be reviewed by all board members and the foster care provider.
You will receive a call for a phone interview
If approved, we will then arrange for you to speak at length with the foster care provider and meet the dog you are interested in.
A home check will be done to assure the safety of the rescue dog in its new home environment. Because of the intense hunting instincts these dogs posess, we require their forever homes to have safe fenced in yards.
Because we want to make sure our dogs live long healthy, happy lives, we will only place our dogs into non-smoking homes.
At the time of adoption, the fee will be collected and an adoption contract signed.
In the weeks following the adoption a member of our group will contact you and do a follow-up obedience or dietary home visit, if needed. We want to make sure you and your new family member are completely happy and healthy!
