Garfield would love to meet you! He would do best in a quiet, experienced, adults-only home with continued training. Garfield is currently spending time in a foster home. For more information on how to meet or adopt him, please e-mail 

Garfield's Story

We may not have Garfield the cat, but we do have Garfield the 7-year old Golden Retriever/Mix! Garfield is a loyal and loving pal who, like his cat-counterpart, loves sleeping in. However, our Garfield would love to be sleeping or napping next to you! He is a huge fan of long walks, his nose will lead the way to a new adventure. Garfield’s favorite toy is a tennis ball, and he will impress you with how fast he can run after one. 

Do you spend most of your time at home? Garfield would love a family who he can always be with. Backyard to play fetch in? That would be a dream! However, Garfield is used to being in the city, so as long as he has a place to fetch he is happy as can be. Garfield will thrive in an experienced, adults only home. Sometimes the hustle and bustle of the city can be tiring on Garfield, so a quiet home where can relax and recharge for the next day's adventure will be nice. If you think Garfield could be the dog that fits your lifestyle, stop by the Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 North Clybourn Ave. In Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood today!
