Is there anything better than a flower in springtime? How about a pup who shares a name with a flower, and is every bit as beautiful and sweet? My name is Iris, and nothing would make me happier than having a family to share my days with. My favorite thing is spending time with my people, playing, snuggling, or just hanging out and watching TV. I do tend to get a bit excited when we play, and I can be a rowdy, so I think children in my new home should have previous experience with larger, playful dogs. I might enjoy living with another dog, but no cats for me.

Iris is the first dog to enroll in Project Pawsitive Future. The youth trainers have successfully taught her skills such as walking with a leash, sit, down, stay, and even giving her paw. Iris is very well trained and has been a delight for not just the youth trainers, but also the other youth and staff. Iris frequently attends therapy sessions and can be seen training on the grounds of the Illinois Youth Center - Warrenville.

Iris is learning K9 manners and basic commands in our Project Pawsitive Future program.
