Hey there, I am Cha Cha. Did I hear that you were having a pool party? If so, I'd really like to come over. I love swimming. I'm a little bit shy at first, but once I warm up, I promise that I have some fun pool games that I could teach you. I'm also good in the car. Why don't we head out to the lake for some fun in the sun? You bring the toys and I'll bring the energy. I also LOVE to play fetch...obsessed maybe.....
I'm a medium-sized, spayed, seven and a half year old girl and I've been told that I am a bit goofy, whatever that means. As long as I can make you laugh, I'm okay with it. I really want to make you happy. If I'm out in the yard, I spend a lot of my time chasing lizards. Let me tell you: those things are everywhere!
Since we're being honest, if I come over to live with you, I really do need a big yard and a fence that I can't get over. I wouldn't want my lizard chasing to lead me astray. I'm also crate-trained, so you can go do your people errands when you need to. But come home soon, because I will miss you!
Not to brag or anything, but I am pretty convinced that I'd make a good agility dog. Hey, you should see how smart and fast I am. I do love to play hard and I'm all about the toys. I'm also good at learning new things and I am super eager to please. Why don't we give it a try?
Mostly, though, what I'd really like to do is to come over to your house and play with you and your other sweet doggies. I also like older kids who want to play fetch and take me for walks on the leash. No cats, though, please. They kind of give me the heebie jeebies. I mean, those claws!
When it's time to come in for the night, I'm on the affectionate side. Can I lie there next to you? Or how about on your lap? I promise not to take up much room. Oh scratch me there, behind the ears. You are so nice! Even if I look like I am sleeping, I'll keep one ear open and protect you while you sleep. After all, that's what friends do, right? I'm not a big barker, but sometimes, a girl's just gotta sing. Just a few notes, though.
So what do you say? Let's set up a play date. I'm really looking forward to meeting you.
*A note from ChaCha's foster family:
Cha is labeled "Special needs and not good with children" because she has been nippy when she feels insecure or feels threatened. She has never broke skin and is not aggressive at all. She is one of the best dogs we have ever fostered, the most loyal dog you will ever meet and will make you laugh every day with her steal your heart personality.
