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!
Meet Riley, the sweetest fuzzy pup and best polar bear cub impersonator in all of Chicago. With assistance from her equally friendly kitty counterpart, Chunk, they make an unstoppable force of cuddles and cuteness. Riley loves taking easy walks through sunny parks and always welcomes some good pets (Chunk likes getting in on this part too). Riley’s relaxed attitude will make even the most anxious want to slow down and join her on a ray-filled stroll or simply just kick back for some pets
Sadie is an adorable French Bulldog that has been with Majestic Paws for going on a year. She is super friendly with all people and loves saying hi to every dog she comes across on her walks. Sadie’s walker Jess normally bookends her days by seeing Sadie at the beginning and end of her route, so she knows her days will always get off to a great start and leave her happy at the end. When she’s not out walking, Sadie loves playing with her toys and spending time in her little home within her home. Congratulations to Sadie for being named Majestic Paws Queen of the Month!
Lea and Artemis are two of the newer kitties at Majestic Paws but they have already made a strong impression on our sitters. Lea is super friendly and playful, and seems to have an imaginary friend that she plays tag with as she will randomly dart across the unit at any moment. She’s also a sucker for cuddles and makes sure she gets her share of hugs and pets at every appointment J
Artemis is just as playful as Lea. His favorite game seems to be follow the leader and he normally stays glued to our sitter’s hip from the moment we arrive. While Lea gets her fix of hugs and pets, Artemis is not to be left out and makes sure he gets his share of belly rubs. Together, Lea and Artemis are this month’s Royal Couple of Majestic Paws!
My name is Sheba. I am a beautiful Cocker Spaniel and I have been part of the Majestic Paws crew since 2012. I am a sweet gal and truly not as ferocious as I may come off in the hallways or out on the sidewalks, I am just trying to tell people who’s boss. I will do anything for Stella’s chewy treats, just ask my walker. I am a bit shy when I meet people but warm up quickly if you show me the goods. Unless of course if you are a man, then I will probably be on guard a little longer. I am one sassy Diva and anyone that takes the time to know me would agree that I am truly one of a kind :)
