Zenith's Story

Meet Zenith!  This cutie pie is as sweet as can be!  He befriends everyone he meets and absolutely adores affection of all kinds.  He has the most gorgeous caramel colored coat and perky ears that are hard to resist!  Just one tilt of his head and you’ll fall in love with him right then and there!  Zenith was originally adopted as a young pup and returned after spending 8 months in the home when his family no longer had time for him.  Now that he has a second chance at finding a place to call home, he is putting out all the stops to find the perfect one for him!  Zenith is an active boy who is hoping to find someone who will make him their very own running buddy!  He loves being out and about and would enjoy going for hikes just as much as he would enjoy going for long strolls throughout the neighborhood.  He has a personality that makes him an absolute star and a mind like a sponge!  He would do just about anything for a stinky treat and has mastered a couple basic commands during his time here.  Zenith would love to continue his training in the future with his forever family so he can learn even more and put his young mind to work! 

Zenith is on the hunt for a home with an experienced owner and without young children since he is not very fond of sharing his toys.  He recently spent some time in a foster home, where we learned that he is a total lovebug who enjoys being as close to his humans as possible!  Zenith enjoys snuggling so much and is always up for a good cuddle session on the couch.  If you’re looking for a companion to keep you warm on these cold winter days, then Zenith would surely be the perfect candidate for that!  His foster family also reported that Zenith enjoys chewing on bones, playing with squeaky tennis balls, and participating in pretty much any playful activity that included his human buddies!  Zenith is sure to bring tons of love and laughter to his forever home.  If you’re willing to give this handsome boy a chance to steal your heart, then come and meet him today!

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!
