Superdog Tess, Ready For Adoption

Each week, we feature pets available for adoption from C.A.R.E. at Evanston's Animal Shelter.

Tess is a smart, young, friendly terrier mix available for adoption at C.A.R.E. Tess, who looks very much like an American Bulldog, has this to say about herself: "I’m so cute that I’ll probably always look young, but don’t be fooled. I do everything full throttle--play, work and love. No matter what you want to do, I’ll be right there with 110% commitment.

"When it’s time for training, I’m ready, willing and able. Come playtime, count me in. And at the end of the day when it’s time to relax, I’ll be there to snuggle up close to you. I’m a perfect balance of smart, curious, athletic and gentle. If you’re ready to work with my young heart, eager mind and energetic body, let’s start now! Time’s a-wasting!"

Tess would make a great dog for someone interested in agility training. She already uses the teeter-totter dog training equipment like a pro.

Tess's Stats:

  • Terrier Mix, 8 months-1 year old, spayed female
  • ASPCA Canine-ality™ Assessment rating: Orange / Busy Bee
