Hello There, My name is Chelten and I'm here to audition for a part in your family!! I'm a 1-2 year old Pitbull/Terrier Mix. I'm up for adoption at Animal Care & Control Team in Philadelphia
I was discovered by a police officer when I was just patrolling the highway looking for a manager to help me with my career. You see, I'm a great performer and I do many scenes. Here at the shelter I have my very own producer!! She takes me for walks, runs, auditions, and is helping me work on my performing skills. So far I've learned "Sit", "Paw", "Down", "Touch", and we are working on "Watch Me", and how to walk like a gentleman on my leash. I've been doing some little gigs here and there, but I'm looking for something more permanent. I would love to have my very own "Family Show". During my audition here I did well! When I met my fellow actors I was a bit shy and unsure. I get a little stage fright but I am working hard on that. You get to sit in on my kitty autidition if you have any kitties on set. This way you can make sure for yourself that I'm the perfect choice for the part. If you promise to support me in my pursuit to be the best dog I can be, I promise to never stop learning. Clearly I'm not camera shy so check out some of my head shots and film clips! It seems I have to go now. Class is over and I must return to my daily scheduled programming! If you think I could possibly have a chance at winning the part of your new family dog, please come see me at the shelter!
