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 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


Meet Catalonia,  a beautiful 4-year-old Retriever mix with a gorgeous red-golden coat and stiking eyes! Originally adopted in 2015, she was unfortunately returned to PAWS Chicago last October 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 and 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 ideally one with a backyard. She can get anxious when left alone, so a home with someone who can be with her often would be ideal. This sweet pup is a very well trained and will thrive in an adults only home with an experience adopter. Catalonia learns quickly and would love the opportunity to show her future adopter what a wonderful companion she can be! If you’re looking to add a charming and lively addition to your life, consider Catalonia!
