Sierra's Story

Meet lovely little Sierra!  This sweetie pie is full of spunk and she has a tail that is always wagging because she is so happy!  Her ears are ridiculously adorable!  They’re so big and tall they can practically touch the sky!  Sierra was found as a stray on the streets of Chicago and brought to Animal Care and Control from there.  PAWS saw her potential for greatness and knew that we could find her the perfect forever home!  This feisty lady, with boundless energy, is looking for someone who can match her exuberance for life.  Sierra hopes she can find a forever family who will take her on tons of adventures so she can do so much needed sightseeing!  She loves being out and about and is always ready to go, go, go!  She is a Jack Russell Terrier after all!  Sierra also enjoys focusing on her training and is looking to expand her horizons and master a few basic commands in the future.  She would enjoy having a buddy who could guide her to becoming the well-behaved girl we all know she has the potential be!  Did we mention Sierra loves playtime?  Yup!  Throw her a tennis ball and she will gladly go and retrieve it for you!  Fetch is one of her favorite pastimes!   

Sierra is looking for a moderately active home with an experienced owner and without young children.  Sierra loves her people and her food so so much that she would prefer to be the only pet in the home so she can be at the center of everyone’s love and affection without having to share.  She also enjoys going for walks and could go for miles and miles if given the chance!  Sierra does get very excited and tends to bark when she sees other dogs out on her walks, so she would do best in a single-entrance home without elevators or shared stairwells so that her reactivity can be better managed in the home.  Have a fenced in yard?  Even better!  Sierra would love to run around and play whenever she pleases!  Although a quiet neighborhood without much traffic would do just fine for this little lady.  If Sierra could speak she would probably tell you she’d love to find a human that will accept her for her adorable and quirky self and love her forever and ever!  She would also say that she wants nothing more than to finally have a place to call her own that is full of squeaky toys, comfy beds, and a never-ending supply of kibble!  Won’t you open your heart and home to this sweet girl?
