Jakki's Story

Meet Jakki!  Jakki is an exuberant Bluetick Coonhound mix who originally arrived at PAWS from one of our rural transfer partners in Oklahoma.  She was quickly adopted into a home as a young puppy and found herself in Chicago Animal Care and Control a few months later when her family determined she was not a good fit for their household.  Jakki was brought back into our adoption program and is now searching for the perfect forever family who, to her, would be willing to help her master her basic obedience skills, a positive outlet for all her adolescent energy, such as taking her for runs or extra-long walks!  A big backyard she can run and play in would be a bonus for this cutie! 

Jakki is an energetic, super friendly, and attentive girl who is always the first dog to jump into the pool up on our rooftop deck!  She highly enjoys cooling off in the water and would love it if her new family had a pool for her, or take trips to the dog beach to romp around and play in during those warm summer months!  Her favorite toy to play with are Kongs, she will play with them for hours if there’s a yummy treat in there for her.  Jakki has gotten along great with many of the dogs here and we suspect that she would do well in a home with another doggy friend that has the same amount of energy and play style that she does!  All in all, Jakki would make a great companion for an active family, without young children or felines in the home. Is that you?  Come out and meet her today!


  • I love playing with Kong toys!
  • I'm a great walking partner and can go for miles.
  • I'm a star pupil at obedience training!
  • I'll take as much exercise as I can get!
  • Did someone say 'treat'?  I'll take them all!
  • I'd love to be your running buddy.



  • I prefer to be in a home without any feline friends.
  • I would love to find a home with children 5+.
