Meet Millie

Introducing Chicagoland Eskie Rescue's Millie! Millie was a stray in Chicago, ended up at CACC (Chicago Animal Care & Control) and with no owner showing up to claim her. CER wasted no time in springing her from doggie jail, a big city shelter can be a very scary place! Her snarls & growls retreated as soon as she was sprung, but she is still being cautious to get her footing in this new life she has begun, a step at a time. ??

We guess that Millie is approx. 3 years old and she is at a good weight of 18 lbs. She came in relatively clean, but with a bad haircut, so she had a groom to get squeaky clean and even out her coat, clip her nails and get her ready for a photoshoot. ?? She seemed to enjoy all except the pedicure! "Fresh Pet" was a winner for her first dinner and again for her first breakfast with us, but now she is eating some kibble mixed with canned. Millie is not particularly treat motivated and thinks that fresh fruits & veggies are a waste of her time. LOL! So far no accidents and she seems to possibly be housebroken.....BUT more time will tell! So far no concern with other dogs....BUT when we bring in a new dog, we don't immediately throw them in a small room with our own dogs to see what happens! We always allow new dogs to chill before "throwing" too much at them. Plus, distances are kept to keep all safe until our newbie can see our vet and get a complete checkup! Millie has now seen our vet, she still needs to finish her vaccines, as well as a couple of routine tests, and have our doc confirm whether she is spayed or not. Our initial look no scar was seen, so she most likely needs to be spayed.

We know that there are so many of you who have been looking for a Mini Female Eskie, please understand that CER has applicants still waiting, some for several months. The pandemic has made transporting dogs long distances challenging if not impossible in some cases. In 2020 CER simply could not fulfill the dreams of each and every applicant.....more than 10 times the applicants to available Eskies! Please be respectful and patient while we sort thru and contact waiting and new applicants, many may have moved on, so we still invite you to complete an adoption application. We will update as we have more information, but Millie first needs to finish her vet care and we need to take some time to get to know her so we can best place her in the right matching furever home. This is and always will be our first priority, to find each and every dog the best matching home!

Our adoption application can be found on our website:
