Congrats to Boris the Boston Terrier puppy for being our Pet of the Month for May 2019! Still a young pup, Boris deserves a round of apPAWS for toughing it through the rough Chicago winter during his first months. But don't worry little guy, warmer days are coming! Boris enjoys meeting just about everyone and soaks up all the attention he gets on his walks. People in the South Loop can't help but stop and say hello to this little munchkin. Boris accepts treat bribes and belly rubs in exchange for his indelible cuteness. Who could say no to that face? Have a great month Boris!
Visiting the sweet and loyal Peligro is truly a treat for our walkers. You'd be hard pressed to find a dog with kinder eyes than this beautiful German shepherd and lab mix. "Peligro" may mean danger in Spanish, but to us Peligro means big hugs, face licks and fun walks. An expert fetcher, she could spend all afternoon chasing her ball back and forth. Give her a treat and some chin scratches and you'll have a best friend for life. We're proud to have Peligro a part of the Majestic Paws family. Have a great month Peligro!

Have you seen the trending video of a cat stealing the show on a fashion runway Turkey? Boy! That was really a head turner and a delightful scene. The models continued their walk, while the cat didn't care what was going on. At some point during the event, it tried to disrupt the strutting models, but it didn't work. The ladies had good reflexes and tried not to disturb the cat.
Anyone who has a pet in the home knows that they bring endless joy and happiness to our lives. From puppy cuddles in the morning or sweet purrs from your kitty in the evening, pets are sweet as can be. This is why we need to make sure that we aren’t harming them when we use harsh chemical cleaners around the house. The ASPCA actually reports that household cleaners are one of the top pet poisons!
Whether it’s an evening walk or an overnight dog sit, Riot is a great hang! He’s a gentleman Corgi who loves people, walks, and cuddles. Riot is a glutton for attention and would love nothing more than for you to stop and say hello while he’s out exploring the neighborhood. He’ll wag his tail and put his ears back for as long as you’d like to pet him. Expressive, friendly and loyal to his owner Robert, Riot is the epitome of a good dog. We’re ecstatic to have him as a member of the Majestic Paws family. Have a great month Riot!
Animal shelters rescue millions of companion dogs every year. Dog shelters provide a temporary home for these lovable creatures until they find a new one who will love them, show them the way of the pack, and reciprocate their undying love, loyalty, and companionship that these dogs are well-known for. They are knocking on the doors of your heart and imploring the kindness in you to bring them home where they can repay it with their own brand of affection, loyalty, protection, and never-ending companionship. MyPetNeedsThat.com shows you the facts about why bringing home a shelter dog is good for you and your family.
You won’t find a more handsome, loyal pup than Mack! Mack is a Collie-mix and loves his afternoon walks around Lakeview. His loving parents, Dominic and Lexi, adopted Mack after he had spent some time on the streets as a stray. He’s been loved and cared for ever since. Mack’s interests include sneaking people-food he’s not allowed to have, meeting other dogs and people, and taking long naps near his loved ones. Sometimes his outgoing cousin Scout comes over to play. They make a great team! Enjoy your month Mack. You deserve it!
With all the hustle and bustle of moving, it can create a stressful environment for your dog or cat. They can be unsure as to why you are moving around your belongings and may feel uneasy about where you are headed. There are several things that you can do before, during and after a move to help your furry friend adjust.
It would be hard to find a friendlier, more loyal pup than good ol’ Magnus. With his natural charisma, Magnus has never met a dog or human he couldn’t charm. His favorite activities include sniffing every inch of his block in Lakeview and following his mom, Lauren, around like her shadow. Magnus loves his walks, but if he had his druthers he’d skip getting his paws wiped after a rainstorm. Of course, it’s all worth it for that treat and fresh water at the end! Keep doing your thing Magnus, King of Lakeview!
What’s black and white and incredibly cute all over? The answer’s easy: Santina, of course!

Let’s picture this. You and your furry buddy are back from the whole afternoon running around, playing hide and seek, throwing and catching balls and chasing squirrels. He is so tired and as soon as both of you get down to the living room; he lays his body on the warm bed by the fireplace. Suddenly, you raise your head and notice his legs twitching. "He must see something in his dream," you wonder. But he is wide awake now but continues to scratch. That is when you freak out and wonder what is going on. Well, that scenario is a signal for a thorough check on your dog's coat for fleas and ticks. Don't worry just yet because these little nuisances are ordinary and with some measures, you can keep things under control....

Meet Jacie, guaranteed to melt your heart if you're lucky enough to run into this cutie. After choosing which of her favorite toys to take out, she's ready to hit the streets and make anyone that passes her smile and swoon with her strut and love for anyone that falls in love with her. When she isn't out on the town, Jacie is always thrilled to be pampered with pets, laying out to soak up some sun rays, and is sweet enough to give you a kiss just for saying, "Hello." For this and so many other reasons, Jacie takes Pet of the Month for June!
Cesar is one of the most energetic pups at Majestic Paws and that’s the reason our walkers love him. Even though he loves his walks, Cesar would much rather spend his time playing fetch with our walkers in the yard. Normally our visits with Cesar consist of 25 minutes of constant fetch, and even though he’s panting the whole time, we get the feeling that he could go a lot longer chasing after his favorite ball. For this reason, and his irresistibly cute smiley face, Cesar is our King of the Month for April 2017.
