Yuri's Story

Give a warm welcome to adorable Yuri!  Yuri is a super adorable girl who is ready to live out her adulthood in a wonderful forever home!  With her soulful eyes and a face that is too cute for words, Yuri is certainly a looker!  Yuri arrived here at PAWS from one of our rural transfer partners in Tennessee.  This country girl has had a hard time adjusting to life in the big city.  She has been very shy and timid during her time here and is slowly acclimating to the hustle and bustle of Chicago.  Yuri will need a very patient and experienced adopter who will take a chance on her and show her that the big, wide world isn’t so scary after all!  With tons of TLC and encouragement, she is bound to develop into a loving and sweet canine companion.  Yuri has shown that she enjoys the company of her doggy roommates and enjoys snoozing right next to them!  She would love to find a confident canine buddy in her new home who will show her the ropes and help her to come out of her shell!  This gorgeous girl is anxiously waiting for the day that the perfect family will come in and scoop her up and give her the home she’s been searching for all along!

Yuri is on the hunt for an experienced, adults-only family and a calm and quiet home where she can become comfortable with her surroundings at her own pace.  It does take her some time to begin to trust those around her, so she would do best with someone who will be committed to building a positive relationship with her in the future.  Due to her fear of strangers, Yuri would do best in a low traffic environment where introductions to guests coming into the home are done at a slow pace and with tons of yummy treats!  Yuri recently spent some time in a foster home, where her foster mom described her as being a calm and gentle girl who is a comfort seeker and adores relaxing on dog beds!  She would love to have her very own comfy dog bed where she can nap all day long in her forever home!  Yuri is the type of lady who enjoys consistency and is not a fan of the unexpected, so she would enjoy setting up a routine with her new family in the future.  This little bundle of fluff will surely form an unbreakable bond with her humans once she is provided with all the tools she needs to become comfortable!  She truly just wants to be loved and cherished to the fullest and is so deserving of a wonderful life with a wonderful family.  She would love to enjoy walks, sunny days in the backyard, and playtime with her people there with her every step of the way.  This cutie has some amazing qualities and she can be extremely sweet once you get to know her!  If you’re willing to take a chance on a bashful girl like Yuri, then email us at to learn more on how you can meet her!
