Just to give you an Idea you will spend more than 2k importing your pet . ( I am spending 3 K and doing it myself to bring in 2 cats) You should get at least 5,000.
Shipping a 1 BR from the US will be minimum 5K in shipping .
35 AED a month is OK to get a 1 BR apt ( marina , JLT) - it may be tight if you need a 2 BR in the marina .
The round trip ticket should be to a place in the US of your choosing . If it is only chicago and you have to work then it is not a perk but an expected expense that an employer would pay.
The others will chime in if you will be allowed to sponsor your husband .
