Hi! I’m Chicago, but my foster mom calls me Chi Chi (pronounced “shy-shy”). I’m the last of my six siblings and I have no idea why! I’m super cute and smart. I love to cuddle and fall asleep on my human. I use my crate as my safe place. I mostly know how to be quiet, but sometimes I bark (cuz I‘m a puppy, ya know?!). I am still working on potty training outside, and I go for walks everyday with my foster brother to try to learn how to pee on things like he does. I am also learning some basic commands like sit, come, kennel, and more. My foster mom says I’m really cute when I carry toys in my mouth and drop them on the other side of my playpen, as an offering or bribe to get out. I really miss my brothers so I hope I can find some dogs and humans to play with me soon.  

I’m growing so fast so I hope I can find my forever home soon!
