Taylor's Story

Meet the overly photogenic, Taylor!  Taylor is a doggy supermodel who can make anyone fall in love with him just by looking at them with his big, doe eyes.  They just plead with you and beg you to take him home!  His striking tan coat and adorable perky ears ensure that every photo taken of him is as perfect as can be!  Taylor was previously adopted into a home and returned after five months when his family began going through a change in lifestyle and felt they could no longer care for him properly.  Taylor came back with his spirits broken and has been unsure of his surroundings.  Slowly but surely, he is beginning to come around and will warm up with lots of positive reinforcement and treats!  Taylor will need to find a family who will be patient with him and help him to come out of his shell.  Once he trusts his humans, he is hoping to build up his confidence by going to training class and through play time too!  He is willing to learn and ready to do whatever he can to earn a stinky treat as he is highly food motivated!

Taylor is searching for an adults-only home with an experienced owner.  Since he can be apprehensive of strangers, he would do best in a quiet environment where introductions to guests is done slowly and with high value treats!  He loves his toys and food so so much!  Taylor would prefer to be in a home without other dogs and where he doesn’t have to share.  He loves having all eyes on him and being the center of his people’s attention!  If there’s one thing Taylor truly loves though, it would have to be toys!  He could probably play with stuffed squeaky toys all day long!  He also enjoys chewing on bones and playing with Kong toys too!  He would adore having his very own collection of toys in his new home!  Taylor is truly a loving boy who wants nothing more than to find someone to show him lots of love in return.  Make this cutie’s dreams of finding a forever home come true and meet him today!  You surely won’t regret it!

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!
