found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Here is what else Chloe's foster family had to say:
Chloe is a gorgeous little pup who has only just begun to come out of her shell. Though we do not know her story for sure, we believe she has come from a puppy mill situation as her underbelly was not in great condition (has gotten much better in the short time we've had her!), and she has become obsessed with a little furry squeak toy - doesn't play with it but rather carries it around in her mouth and hides it when she feels threatened. It seems like she has experienced her puppies (most likely multiple litters) being taken away from her abruptly. She has sadness in her eyes but SO MUCH love to give.
After a much needed bath on her first night with us, Chloe's gorgeous coat shines and her tear stains gone. She has a great appetite and perfect amount of energy. She loves going on walks and will do anything for a treat or a nice belly rub! Chloe does not appear to shed at all.
Though we haven't had an opportunity to see what Chloe is like around small children, I believe she would do just fine. She has greeted any company we've had (men, women, tall, short) friendly and calmly. She does not appear to have any issues with anyone. Though Chloe is shy, she is still willing to meet anyone who gives her the attention. She loves treats and cuddles and is not afraid to show it! I believe she will continue to come out of her shell once she realizes she's safe and will continue to overcome her shyness.
Though we haven't been around too many other dogs yet, Chloe seems to be just fine. Her and our dog Ray (a chihuahua mix) have not had a good play yet but it seems like she does not really know how - she gets excited at times but does not know how to play back. I believe within a few more days they will be the best of friends. As of now, they both respect each others' space and have not gotten into any "fights" over anything whatsoever.
Chloe has been an absolute doll in this sense. Though she gets excited upon our return home, she does not appear to show any signs of separation anxiety. After a few times of leaving her in the apartment in short intervals, it was clear that Chloe continued to do whatever she was doing (laying on the couch or bed) while we were gone. When leaving for a longer amount of time, we have felt totally comfortable leaving her loose in the house. Chloe loves being cuddled and included in whatever her humans are doing. She loves to watch her foster mummy cook in the kitchen.
Chloe does love food and will follow her nose until she finds whatever it is that smells so good! She does beg when we are eating but of course she is too small to counter surf or anything else other than just staring. Other than her begging (which she still does in a polite manner), Chloe is a great house guest. She has not gotten into anything she shouldn't and does not seem to have a problem with chewing.
Chloe can "sit" and "shake a paw" and "lie down" on command. We believe Chloe must have been house trained at some point as she has not had one accident in the house. Though she does not give a sign when she has to go out, we have been taking her about every 6 hours. We decided not to use the crate with Chloe since her and our other dog Ray got along from the start - they don't even fight over toys/food/etc. So she has been totally trustworthy when left alone in the house and since she seems to be house trained we were not worried about her having accidents. Chloe loves to go for walks and right now we are using a regular collar. She does tend to pull sometimes (not hard) and I feel that with her small little neck, she would benefit more from a harness.
Chloe deserves a home that will make her feel loved and special. If we are correct about her life prior to being one of Ugly Mutts' lucky contenders, then she has had a very sad start and needs a new beginning. Because of her small size and shy personality, I think Chloe should be in a home with no young children. Though she is fine when left alone in the house, I still think Chloe would be happiest with someone who can spend lots of time with her. She would be perfect for someone older since she is pretty low maintenance and quite relaxed. As long as she has someone who loves her, Chloe would thrive in any environment.
