Retriever, Labrador

Meet Kiwi


Kiwi would love to meet you! Kiwi would do best in a home with kids that are least 15 years old. Stop by our Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave., in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood, today.

Kiwi's Story

On his own, Kiwi is a shy one. With other dogs, however, this guy springs to life! Being in canine company gives Kiwi the confidence to manage his fear of new people and environments. A patient, experienced owner in a calm, quiet home (with a cozy spot to curl up in) can take him even further. Kiwi is super sweet once he warms up and loves to chew on toys and go for rides in the car.

Could Kiwi be the perfect companion for your dog? Come find out.
