My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

We’ve all heard the phrase, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Adult dogs have a great attention span and eagerness to please, allowing them to learn faster than more youthful members of their species. And trust us—there is no age limit on puppy dog eyes and zoomies! If you’re looking for a steadfast companion who will be truly grateful for a second chance at a happy life, look no further than an adult dog.

PAWS Chicago is working to build a No Kill Chicago -- a city where pets are no longer destroyed just because they are homeless.
