UPDATE 11-27-08: We are grateful to have Dixie back in our care after being adopted for several months. Upon arrival back to her original foster home- we found that poor Dixie was starving and dehydrated. She had also lost almost 9 pounds. Thankfully she doens't seem to have any permanent damage from her former adopters and is adjusting well at home. She seems quite relieved to be back with the dog pack and even reunited with her son Pee Wee. She seems content to be a couch potato and even sleeps with the Foster families 6 year old son at night. She adores children. Her foster mom reports she is just doing wonderful!!!

We will be doing some follow up vetting care to make sure she is healthy and are hopeful that we find her a wonderful loving safe forever home.

UPDATE 02-17-08: Dixie did a fine job nursing Anton, Emile and Remy. She is now ready to start her pre-heartworm month long Doxycycline treatment. After that she will have the regular Immiticide 2-day heartworm treatment and 2 months after that we will be able ready for adoption. By then her girlish figure and feathering should be back.

This dog will need a safe fenced in yard and a non-smoking home.

Due to the fact that many of our dogs have come from shelters or abuse or neglect situations, and unless we have tested these dogs on upland birds and feel they are confident and ready to work as a hunter with families where they will be trained with kindness and patience, we will only adopt to pet homes.

All adoptions include vaccinations, deworming, microchips, spaying or neutering, collar, leash and an information adoption packet. All IBR dogs are crate trained, housebroken, socialized with other dogs and loved on by their human foster parents. Adoption fees are used to cover vetting expenses and special need dogs' vetting care.

If you are interested in adopting this pet, please fill out an online adoption application.

Make a donation or sponsor a homeless dog. Illinois Birddog Rescue has always prided itself in not turning away any sick and injured dogs; animals that most shelters would have euthanized. We have saved many dogs with heartworm, tick borne illnesses, broken legs, missing legs, blind dogs, a new deaf puppy, dogs suffering from Parvo and especially senior dogs that may need expensive health care to help them get ready for adoption. In February of 2006, in one weekend, we brought in 20+ dogs from the Boat Mountain Tragedy, and that depleted our emergency funds. Please help us continue to help those birddogs that have suffered terrible abuse and suffering by making an online donation here:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dixie-ADOPT PEND!, a Wood Dale English Setter/Setter (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English Setter/Setter (Unknown Type) for sale in Wood Dale, or seeking a English Setter/Setter (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Wood Dale.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wood Dale already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Wood Dale breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even English Setter/Setter (Unknown Type) breeders who help with English Setter/Setter (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wood Dale paves the way for another one to be saved.
