Perlette's Story

Meet Perlette, an active girl who is looking for an equally active owner! This spirited 2 year old is extremely frisky and would love a human friend to play fun games with, go on long walks, and spoil her with a variety of toys and treats. Although she was returned to PAWS earlier this year after it was determined she was not the best fit for the home, Perlette’s previous adopter described her as being gentle, lively, playful, and affectionate.

Perlette would thrive in a home without young kids where she will be the only pet. She would do best with a family that is experienced with dogs and will be willing to continue her leash and obedience training. Perlette already knows quite a few commands and has the potential to be an amazing companion. This sweet pooch has a lot of love to give, could you be the lucky recipient?

  • I'm a people person!
  • I'll take as much exercise as I can get!
  • You + a tennis ball = my perfect day
  • I'm a star pupil at obedience training
  • I love playing with Kong toys


  • I'd love to find a home with children 15 and over
  • I prefer to be the only pet in the home




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!
