Hi! Thanks for giving me some attention! I'd like you to know that I've already been spayed or neutered. At Animal Friends, dogs and cats also leave fully up-to-date on shots and microchipped. All I need now is to find someone who will love me. Please ask to meet with an adoption counselor, so we can be properly introduced and talk about what kind of pet you're looking for. We can discuss whether you're looking for a lap pet or a social butterfly, an 'only pet' or a furry 'sibling' for kids or other animals. Best of all, by adopting from Animal Friends, you make it possible for them to rescue and care for another pet who truly needs help. So, what are you waiting for? Let's sit down together! *****************************************************

Cleo found her way to Animal Friends after a local dog warden found her running at large in Lawrence County. She was wiggly and friendly upon admission and quickly showed her energy level! Cleo is a high-energy girl who needs stimulation - both mental and physical. She has been in a foster home for two years, but is still looking for her forever home.

She is good in the home, occupying herself with bones and naps throughout the day. She loves to chase a laser light around the living room, which can keep her busy for hours – if you are willing!

Because of CleoÂ’s high energy level and playstyle, she doesnÂ’t get along well with all dogs. Some dogs enjoy her energy and enthusiasm for play, while others are put off by it. Because of this, we are recommending that she be the ONLY animal in the home. Cleo loves walks and jogs with her human companions and has been working diligently on her leash manners.

Cleo would benefit from taking some behavior classes to fine-tune her skills. Her hyperactivity and anxiety suggests that she would NOT do well in a home with children. She can be overwhelming and mouthy when aroused. Cleo has been prescribed medicine to help manage her hyperactivity and anxiety, and combined with positive reinforcement training techniques, she is doing really well!

Cleo is a Mission: Adoptable pet! Click hereto find out more about the Mission: Adoptable program and how it''s helping Cleo find a forever home!
