Meet our newest office doggy commander-in-“Chief”. We recognized that Chief is a people “person” more than a dog “person”, so we’ve given him a very important task away from the kennels during his stay at UPAWS… He is now in charge of brining smiles to our office staff and greeting visitors with gusto. If you step past our office door your sure to be met with his wide, silly, smile and a very happy tail wag. If your lucky you might even be gifted a toy to toss around with him too!

Chief has shown us that he is a polite boy and while he is in the office he settles very well and enjoys snoozing on a nice soft bed while all of his people pals work. The best part of having Chief share our office is that he knows when to recognize that it is time for a break! He will happily bring over a toy, or a tug rope, for a quick game to keep your spirits up. After playing for a couple of minutes, he is happy to settle down again.

We love this boy and we are sure that you will too! Chief wants to be an only furchild, but he may enjoy sharing his home with older respectful children (because of his exuberance for play- he may be too much for very young children). If you have questions about Chief, or if you think he may be a great addition to your family, please call our staff at 906-475-6661.

Adoption Sponsorship from Tinos Bar and Pizza of Negaunee. Also from Michael Zakosek. FEE-WAIVED rate.
