Janey's Story

Meet Janey!  Janey is a show stopper of a dog who wants nothing more than to find a forever family who will give her all the love she deserves.  Her amazingly good looks turn heads every time she goes for walks!  She arrived here at PAWS from one of our rural transfer partners in Oklahoma.  Janey was quickly adopted into a home and sadly returned when the family realized she was not the best fit for their household.  Now that she’s on the market for a new place to call home, Janey is putting out all the stops to find the perfect one for her!  She highly enjoys basking in the sunshine on our rooftop deck and can often be found romping around happily from one side to the other!  Janey also enjoys squeaky toys and is always trying her best to find a way to get to the fun squeaker hidden inside of all that fluff! 

Janey is looking for a home with an experienced owner and without young children as she can be a bit timid in new environments and when being walked on busy streets.  It will take her some time to get used to her new surroundings, but once she has completely adjusted, her true personality is bound to shine through!  She would absolutely love it if her new family would take her on walks in low dog and human traffic areas first before branching out to the big city streets of Chicago.  If they had a fenced in backyard she could run around in whenever she pleases, then that would be a bonus for her!  Since Janey also enjoys soaking up all the attention from her human buddies, she would prefer to be the only pet in the home.  She is such a lovely and sweet girl and her gorgeous wired coat and soulful brown eyes are guaranteed to make you fall in love with her at first sight!  Come in and meet her today!  Janey may just be the perfect doggy companion for you.

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!
