Brad's Story

Meet Brad!  Brad is one handsome ray of sunshine who has a heart of gold!  He is a gentle giant who just wants to find someone to love him forever and ever!  Brad came to PAWS from one of our rural transfer partners in Arkansas.  This country boy is just darling and charms the socks off of everyone he meets!  With his silky soft fur and adorable face, it’s hard not to fall in love with him at first sight.  He never meets a stranger and enjoys the company of other dogs just as much as he loves his people!  Brad sometimes thinks he’s a tiny little lap dog and will try his best to fit perfectly into your lap just so he can be as close to you as possible.  He loves snuggle sessions and nap time, but is also very active and would enjoy having a buddy who will let him tag along on journeys through the great outdoors!  He loves spending his days outside basking in the sunshine while walking beside his human friends.  Brad will surely enjoy going to the park, walking along the beach, or simply enjoying a nice bone or chew toy out in the yard!  It doesn’t take much to make this boy happy!

Brad is searching for an adults-only home with an experienced owner.  He loves the company of his people so much that he does not like to be away from them for long periods of time.  Brad would do best with a family who is home throughout the day so that he can receive all the love and affection he craves so much!  This cutie also adores his toys and food so much that he doesn’t enjoy sharing them.  He hopes his family will be able to manage this in the home and give him his space when he’s eating or has a high value chew toy.  Have a hand to spare?  Brad would love it if you could give him a good quality belly rub!  If there is one thing we know for sure, it’s that Brad is extremely lovable and just wants to be pet all day long!  He is extremely affectionate and will surely repay you for your efforts with lots of slobbery kisses.  If you feel like you need a handsome hunk like Brad in your life, then you have to come and see him!  He’ll be so excited he’ll barely be able to contain himself!

Why Adopt?

Adoption is one of the best ways to save a life. Only a few thousand more adoptions each year in Chicago, a city of millions of people, and we will be a No Kill community! You can make a real difference.

At PAWS Chicago, we keep working to grow our operations to save more homeless pets. It's how we've gone from saving a few dozen to 6,000 pets a year. But it is our adopters who make the real magic happen by bringing these loving pets home. Adopt a pet and spread the word!
