Meet Gigi


Gigi would love to meet you!  She would do best in a quiet, adults-only home with an experienced owner.  She would do best with a family who is home throughout the day.  Stop by our Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave., in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood, today.

Gigi's Story

Meet Gigi!  Gigi is a show stopper of a dog who wants nothing more than to find a forever family who will give her all the love she deserves!  Gigi is absolutely gorgeous and has a beautiful tan and black coat and soulful eyes that just reel you in from the very beginning!  She is a quiet and timid little girl who was originally adopted as a young puppy and returned after spending 8 months in the home when her family felt she was not a good match for their household.  Gigi has had a rough time adjusting to life here at PAWS and is slow to trusting those around her.  She can be very fearful of strangers, especially men, and will need a very patient adopter who will help her to navigate through this big world and build up her confidence so she can become the best dog she can possibly be!  Once she is comfortable with her humans, she will build a bond with them that is truly unbreakable and she loves her people fiercely.  She is hoping that her perfect person is out there and will give her the chance she needs to come out of her shell and reveal the amazing dog that is underneath all of that uncertainty and fear!

Gigi is searching for a quiet, adults-only home with an experienced owner.  Since she can be weary of strangers, she would do best in a low traffic environment where there’s not a ton of people coming in and out of the home.  Since she holds her friends close to her heart and loves them oh so dearly, she doesn’t like to be away from them for long periods of time.  She would do best with a family who is home throughout the day, so she can receive all the love and attention she craves!  With a lot of patience and encouragement, we have begun to build trust with Gigi and she has won over the hearts of many staff members here at PAWS!  We’ve discovered that Gigi highly enjoys the company of other dogs and they have truly helped her gain a bit more confidence!  She loves to play and wrestle with her doggy friends and would make a great companion or another playful dog!  Gigi also enjoys treats to the max!  She would do just about anything for a chewy treat!  Her all-time favorite would have to be Pupperoni!  If it were possible, Gigi would probably do back flips as soon as you show her one!  Being highly food motivated will help Gigi with her training and motivate her to be a good girl as much as possible.  If you give this gorgeous girl a chance, she will surely reward you with years of happiness and love!  Feel like Gigi’s your perfect match?  Then you have to come and meet her!
