Lapis's Story

Say hello to Lapis!  Lapis is a gorgeous girl who is looking for an active household who enjoys being out and about and loves to explore just as much as she does!  She was found as a stray and brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control.  PAWS saw her potential for greatness and scooped her right up in the hopes that we could give her a second chance!  Lapis is a playful pup who has never had the chance to be a part of a family of her very own.  She dreams of the day her human hero will come along and show her exactly what it’s like to be loved and cherished unconditionally!  Lapis’ ideal forever home would be with an experienced, adults-only family who will give her a collar of her very own and a warm place to sleep at night!  She has exceled in her nose work class and has all the makings of becoming an agility star!  She hopes her new family will continue her training in the future so she can keep improving!

Laps recently spent some time in a foster home where we learned that she absolutely loves going for rides in the car as the co-pilot!  She also enjoys receiving attention from all of her human friends and is a super affectionate girl.  If Lapis could speak, she would tell you that her all-time favorite thing to chew on is her extra special Nylabones!  It certainly keeps her busy!  She also loves any chew toy she can get her adorable paws on!  With the cutest pointy ears, we’ve ever seen and a doggy smile that could brighten anyone’s day, Lapis is a true gem just like her namesake!  If you dream of giving a deserving dog a forever home just as much as she dreams of having one, then come and visit with beautiful Lapis today!
