Meet Pecos


Looking for one of the smartest dog you will ever meet? Pecos is a five year old Shepherd mix whose foster family reports that " he is the smartest dog we have ever fostered. He learns new commands so quickly, we could swear he understands English! He is incredibly loving and loyal, playful and well behaved. He will fetch his toys, bring them back to you, head to his crate on command, sit, lay down, shake, stay, come, and more. Contained to our house and yard with the people he is comfortable with, he is a perfect dog." Need we say more?

The ideal family for Pecos will make sure to keep him active with lots of fetch and time in the yard. He will also enjoy time cuddled up next to you on the couch. Pecos can be shy with new people and nervous around children, so he would love a home with a mature crowd who are experienced dog owners. Is Pecos the right dog for you?

Pecos's Story

Pecos would love to meet you at the  Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 North Clybourn Ave., in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. He is shy and would do best in a quiet, experienced, adults-only home with continued training.
