Octavia's Story

Meet Octavia!  Octavia is a beautiful and witty young pup who is hoping she can wiggle her way into the perfect forever home!  She knows just how cute and adorable she is and uses it to her full advantage!  Just one tilt of her head and you’ll be rushing to take her home!  Octavia is a typical puppy who is hoping she can challenge her mind in obedience training in the future and would love to find a family who is willing to teach her tons and tons of tricks.  She also adores playtime and will take any chance she can get to chase after a tennis ball…or a squeaky toy…or really anything that looks like it’s fun to play with!  Octavia is hoping to find an active home where she will be taken for multiple walks throughout the day and a family who enjoys being out and about just as much as she does.

Octavia is searching for a family without young children and an experienced owner who will provide her with all the head scratches and ear massages her tiny heart desires!  She is currently spending time in a foster home where she is slowly but surely learning how to socialize and interact properly with other dogs.  Octavia does well with the two resident dogs in the home and we feel she would be best suited for a home with another patient dog who she can learn from in the future!  Her foster parents have told us that she does very well in her crate and will go in there when she’s all tuckered out and needs some rest or when she just wants to entertain herself with her toys.  She is also getting the hang of potty training and is improving more and more each day when it comes to letting them know when she has to go outside!  Octavia is as sweet as she is gorgeous and hopes she can charm the socks off of one lucky family so she can score a forever home!  Do you think she may be the perfect pup for you?  Stop on by at the Lincoln Park Adoption Center and find out!
