Big Love

Colby would love to meet you! He would do best in a moderately active, experienced home with family members 15+, continued training and no other pets. Colby would also do best in a home that has a backyard.

Colby is one of the animals who will be participating in the Big Love Adoption Event this Saturday July 20th and Sunday July 21st from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. at the Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 North Clybourn Ave.,in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood.

Adoption fees will be waived for selected dogs. The $100 refundable training deposit still applies.

Colby's Story

Need some Southern soul in your life? Meet Colby! This gorgeous Labrador Retriever mix originally came to PAWS Chicago from Tennessee. He has lots of puppy energy left in him, so he would love owners who could provide him with continued training. Because of his energy level, he would do great in an active home as a running buddy or walking companion.

Colby is not a big fan of other dogs, so he'll need to be an only pet. Also, due to his high energy level, he will require owners aged 15+. If you are interested in meeting him, please visit our Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave. in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood.

  • 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 prefer to be the only pet in the home
  • I’d prefer a home where I don’t have to share my food or toys\
