CHICAGO (CBS) —  Rafi is the PAWS Dog of the Week.

He’s a two-year-old shepherd smart and active. Rafi is looking for a family to help him become comfortable and confident in his new home.

Rafi’s foster home described him as a gentle giant who is overcoming his fears of meeting new people and places. He is a comfortable, playful pup who loves to play with tennis balls and toys. Rafi also appreciates a cuddle and enjoys sprawling out for a nap.

He’s looking for an adults-only home in a quieter neighborhood with a family to make him comfortable and safe.

Rafi and other dogs and cats are available through the PAWS Chicago website. Go to the virtual adoption process section to learn more.
