Chicago loves its pets. It is consistently rated as one of the most dog-friendly cities to visit in North America. There are upscale hotels that are accommodating to dogs, many hiking trails, plenty of dog parks, pet-friendly bars, and a general positive attitude towards pets. Even some of their famous Lake Michigan and Chicago River boat tours allow dogs to ride along.

Chicago also has a very active and robust non-profit environment to promote animal welfare and pet adoptions.

In general, people prefer the larger dogs in the Midwest. There is more space to run and the cold weather is more suited to the sturdy breeds. The most popular breeds include Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, and Bulldogs. However, small dogs are gaining in popularity too, just ask the Yorkshire Terrier. You can find these breeds or mixed breed dog at local shelters in Chicago. There is no need to go to a breeder.
