Myrtle's Story

Are you an avid runner looking for the perfect running buddy?  Well look no further, Myrtle is your girl!  She is passionate about exercise and being constantly on the move!  Myrtle hopes to find someone who shares her active lifestyle and enthusiasm for living life to the fullest!  This sweetheart was found as a stray on the streets of Chicago and brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control.  PAWS took one look at her adorable face and we instantly knew we had to help this girl find a loving forever home.  There’s no question about it, Myrtle is one of the peppiest canines we’ve ever met!  She is looking for an active family who can provide her with all the physical and mental stimulation she craves!  Myrtle is such an exuberant girl and extremely food motivated!  She is always willing to work for her treats and is excited to learn tons of fun tricks in the future!  She is hoping to become a part of a wonderful family who will help guide her on her way to becoming a polite little lady and commit to her training.  She has a mind like a sponge and is ready to become the star pupil in training class!

Myrtle is searching for a home with an experienced owner and without young children.  She can get easily excited on walks and would do best with a strong and confident handler. Myrtle does enjoy the company of other rough and tumble kind of dogs who enjoy playtime! She would love having a playmate in her forever home! A place with a backyard would be a big bonus for Myrtle!  She would love to have her own space to run around in and enjoy whenever she pleases!  Myrtle also gets anxious when guests come over, so she would do best being kept in a separate and quiet room when there’s company.  This cutie spent some much-needed time in a foster home where her foster parents described her as being a super sweet, friendly, and energy dog who just wants constant love or someone to play with!  She is an absolute joy to be around and loves playtime!  Some of Myrtle’s favorite fun activities include playing tug of war or fetch, eating tons of creamy peanut butter, and cuddling to the max!  She is reportedly very good at snuggling and would always weasel her way from cuddling next to her to cuddling right in between both of her foster parents.  It’s safe to say Myrtle is one of the most adorable canines we’ve ever met!  She is so deserving of a loving forever home and is always eager to please!  If you feel like you can provide her with all the snuggles, playtime, and affection she deserves, then stop by the Lincoln Park Adoption Center and meet her today!
