My story

Teela is a Tennessee girl at heart! She was found running loose in bad shape down south in the land of the Smoky Mountains. She is a wild child who loves to run and must have a fenced-in yard to stretch her legs. She will stick to you like velcro so having a cozy couch is a must. She loves car rides, and will literally do anything for a treat. Unfortunately, Teela doesn't like other dogs so she will need to be the only one in the home. Email us at is you're interested in meeting her!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Must be at least 22 years of age to apply. Our adoption process is as follows: First, the applicant must fill out an application. After the application is reviewed by the rescue and the references have been called, dog introduction will be scheduled. If all goes well, a home visit will be scheduled and the dog will be placed. The first few weeks of having the dog is a trial period to make sure the dog is a good fit for you and your family. During the trial period, the rescue provides the necessities for you: crate, food, leash, and collar. If after the trial period you decide you'd like to adopt, adoption papers will be completed and the adoption fee is due at this time. If you decide this dog is not a good fit, the dog comes back to rescue and we can possibly look for a dog that would be a better match. The fee for puppies is $500, 1 - 5 years is $400, and over 6 years is $300. This fee includes the cost of the spay or neuter, current vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test (in dogs over 7 months). Adopters must agree to attend the training program at Dogstyle, Inc in Vernon Hills, IL.

Our main areas of adoption are the Chicagoland area....typically within an hour driving radius of Vernon Hills, IL. Placement in other towns/cities/states depends on the availability of the rescue to do a home visit and the adopter to attend training classes with our behaviorist.
