Get to Know Troy


Border Collie Mix




1 Year



Meet Troy


Troy is one of our adoptable dogs that is participating in our A Chance to Bloom adoption event!

On Saturday March 23rd from 11-6 we will be waiving adoption fees for all adult dogs (7 months and over). The $100 training deposit still applies. 

Troy would love to meet you! He would do best in a moderately active home with family members 15+, as the only pet, and continued training.

Stop by our Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave., in Chicago's Lincoln Park  neighborhood today.

Troy's Story

Meet Troy! Troy is a one year old Border Collie mix who looks forward to any activity you send his way. This black and white pup LOVES people and looks forward to going on adventures like running (or anything else where burning energy is involved) with his future family. As much as he loves people, Troy doesn’t care to share that love with other animals and should be the only animal in your household.


Troy is looking for a moderately active home where everyone is at least fifteen years old. He would be thrilled to continue training (including crate training), since he thinks mental workouts are just as important as physical ones. If you think you could be the running buddy Troy is seeking, email us at to learn more about how you can bring him home!

Adoption Process

All PAWS Chicago dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and have up-to-date on shots based on age and arrival date.
