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 dogs, and good with cats.
We are mystified by Chelsea’s heritage. She is clearly part Terrier, but she seems quite tall for a Terrier mix. Her front feet look like those of a German Shepherd and her body has the slender, leggy look of a Sighthound. Her face has delightful beard, whiskers and eyebrows and the brightest, most intelligent brown eyes you’ve ever seen. She has beautiful sparkling white teeth and smiles constantly.
Chelsea would be a perfect family dog for almost anyone. We think she would especially like older-than-toddler children to play with, but she is also quite happy to be a couch potato. She is incredibly healthy and her missing leg bothers her not at all. In fact, she wonders why the other dogs have that extra one. She is extremely athletic, but very gentle and with a very soft touch. One of her favorite tricks is to stand on her hind legs and oh-so-lightly touching you with her front leg, on the lap, the waist or the shoulder. It is such a loving gesture that one is quite overwhelmed.
Chelsea loves everything: playing, cuddling, snoozing. walking, wrestling with other dogs, belly-rubs and giving kisses. She is crate-trained (she behaves PERFECTLY in a crate), dog-door trained and house-trained. She does occasionally take the toilet paper roll for a run around the bathroom, but she is still very young and is growing out of this already. She is not a barker, unless there is something to bark at, and she is very obedient and responsive.
We are looking for a home for Chelsea where she will be loved and treasured for the remarkable creature she is. A family who realizes that physical perfection is not important would be ideal. We would also prefer that Chelsea be in a home where someone is home most of the time or where she has at least one other dog to play with. She is very social and would be very unhappy left home alone all day.
If you think you might be able to offer Chelsea the perfect home, please contact Mary Lou at email@example.com. An adoption application, home check and reference checks are required.
The adoption fee for Chelsea is a modest donation to Southland Sheltie Rescue, Inc., the nonprofit organization responsible for saving her from euthanasia at the shelter.
