FOX 32 News has teamed up with no-kill shelter PAWS Chicago to bring you an adoptable pet each week. This week, we're featuring Schnauzer-Poodle mix Apple Jacks.
This inspiring four-month-old is sure to fill your heart with happiness. Apple Jacks was born blind and came to PAWS Chicago from another shelter. Upon his arrival and exam, the PAWS veterinary team detected that his eyes were in poor condition and needed to be removed. This surgery hasn't stopped him from continuing to love everything he experiences! This resilient boy acts just like any other healthy dog and has a zest for life.
Apple Jacks loves attention from people and has a lot of love to give. He particularly loves cuddles and hearing people's voices. Apple Jacks is a quick learner and uses his other senses to navigate the world around him. He would thrive in a routine environment and with an owner who will be kind and patient with him as he learns his new surroundings. Apple Jacks is house trained but would benefit from some training and socialization so that he can grow up to be a well-rounded dog.
You can meet Apple Jacks and other animals in need of forever homes at the PAWS Chicago Adoption & Humane Center in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
Special request: If you are unable to adopt Apple Jacks or any of his friends at PAWS Chicago, please consider donating extra towels, sheets, or blankets to the PAWS Chicago Adoption Center. Your donation will offer our animals a bit of comfort as they wait for their forever homes.
