Meet Adonis


Meet Adonis


Meet Adonis! He’s been with PAWS Chicago since June 2019 after being pulled from a hoarding situation. We don’t know much about his past, but he’s trying so hard to be a dog now that he’s in a safe environment.  Adonis recently spent time in foster and we found out that this sweet boy is a cuddle bug - he’d love no more than to sit right next to you on the couch and get all the attention.  He’s housebroken, and settles into his crate like a champ. Adonis loves meal time and is incredibly food motivated when it comes to training. He is very eager to please, affectionate and playful. He adores small plush toys and chewing on bones.  

Adonis is a little quirky, and fearful of new spaces. Adonis will do best in an experienced, adults only household. In his foster home, he has settled right in but was hesitant to move through doorways and hallways - so he’ll need an owner that’s willing to go slow, have lots of treats on hand and help him take a few steps at a time while he adjusts. He’s mastered going up and down stairs. Because of his past in a hoarding situation, he’s very sensitive to the sound of other dogs barking and would do best as a solo pup in his new home. Adonis needs a special owner that’s willing to take extra time to help him grow and learn what dog life is all about. He’s willing to put in the work if you are! 

Adonis's Story

Adonis would love to meet you! He would do best in a quiet, experienced, moderately active home with adults only. Adonis is currently spending time in a foster home. For more information on how to meet or adopt him or his participation in this event, please e-mail
