Meet Catalonia

Featured 5

Catalonia would love to meet you! Catalonia would do best in a home as the only dog, and only with adults.  Catalonia is currently enjoying time in a foster home, so please email to set up a meeting or learn more. 

Catalonia is part of PAWS Chicago’s Featured 5 adoption program and is looking for a patient, experienced adopter who will continue the training program she began at PAWS Chicago. 

As a benefit of her adoption, adopters will receive a year of free Merrick Pet Care dog food, free wellness care at PAWS Chicago Medical Center and a free private training and evaluation session at PAWS Chicago’s Training Center.

Catalonia's Story

Catalonia is a beautiful 4-year-old Retriever mix with a gorgeous red-golden coat and golden eyes. She was returned to PAWS Chicago after her owner could no longer care for her. Since being back, we have learned quite a few things about this sweet pup! She is incredibly smart and active, so she craves training and exercise. A few of her favorite things include Kong toys, chew toys, and riding in the car.

Catalonia is not a big fan of other dogs, so she would love a home in a low dog traffic area or with a backyard. She can get anxious when left alone, so a home where someone can be with her often would be ideal. A home with no other dogs and adults only would also be best for her. Catalonia is a very well trained dog in the home and is house trained. She learns quickly and would love the opportunity to show an experienced owner what a wonderful companion she can make!

  • Going for a car ride? Take me along!
  • I love playing with Kong toys
  • Squeak! Squeak! I love Squeaky chew toys!
  • I’ll take as much exercise as I can get!
  • Did someone say ‘treat’? I’ll take them all
  • I’m a people person! 
  • I’m a star pupil at obedience training 
  • You + a tennis ball = my perfect day


  • I prefer to be the only pet in the home
  • Keep me company! I prefer homebodies who are often at home
  • I prefer quiet environments that aren’t crowded
  • I’d love to find an adults-only home
