My first two questions are:

What is your credit score?

What is your budget?

Best regards,

Dear Renter,

Edith gave you a good detailed answer. Just remember today landlords are also looking at credit as well as they are looking for your monthly household income to be at least three times that of the monthly rent.

Best of Luck,

How you going to have a great score in this day and time, landlords need to snap out of it being judged by your credit scores ridiculous, by the way I have a score of 690

You need to connect with a local Realtor familiar with the Chicago Rental market in the area or areas of the city you are interested in....
There will be limited choices for you as some places will not allow dogs at all, others will require a weight limit, but with 9 lb you should be ok with that requirement... The amount of rent you are willing to pay, and depending on what the rent is going to include will determine what it is that you can find. The
Realtor who will work with you, will also need to know, what else you need, like for example the following items
washer and dryer in unit?
walk up or elevator building?
balcony or not necessary
What is spacious to you, i.e. the sq.ft. of the unit
Do you need parking? one car or two, outside ok or do you need a garage
So you really should sit down with a Realtor, who then after getting all the details from you including
application information will be able to zero in on potential properties for you...

Do you need to be close to transportation, shopping etc.
Let me know I gladly connect you with a good Realtor in the city, need to know the areas you are
Good Luck to you

you must have good credit, a regular source of income and pay market rates..if you want units that you can rent tell me when, and how much you can afford.. 30% of your monthly income is max

They and all the other rental web sites. A good heart does not matter if you cannot afford the rent and the landlorddoes not want to rent to dogs. That will be a problem.
