Chellie is an adorable little girl who we think may be a westie mix, perhaps with poodle or maltese. While we don't know her history, we do know that she will love you instantly regardless of what she's been through in the past. In a matter of hours, you will have won her heart, and she will win yours. What a diamond in the rough! Yes, she's missed a few of her grooming appointments as you can see in these "before" pictures, but our groomer has cleaned her up (unfortunately had to shave her) and soon she will become a curly, champagne-colored beauty. She has darker eyelashes than her coat, so if she's groomed to show that off, OMG, she'll be too cute for words!
At 21 pounds, and probably 1.5-2 years old, maybe she's just right for you. Chellie loves to cuddle and be petted. She is a nice blend of active/playful and restful. Something else she has going for her is that she doesn’t seem to shed, or is at most a very low-shedding dog.
Chellie enjoys sitting in your lap and snuggling. She likes to play with her toys, fetching them and tugging on them with you.
She likes the snow and loves to spend time roaming around the yard. She is housebroken, but is crated at night where she settles down with no complaining. She is learning not to chew things when she's bored (only a few times in the last month), and is also in the process of learning that she isn’t supposed to jump on people. She has already learned "sit," "down" and "paw".
Overall, she's a good little girl, gets along with the resident dog in her foster home, and listens pretty well. We believe she would be good with older children as she's very friendly. Chellie just needs a little refining and some useful training techniques used consistently will go a long way towards allowing her to reach her full potential.
Chellie's adoption fee of $295 includes: vet exam, heartworm test (neg), distemper combo vaccination, rabies and bordetella vaccination, fecal test (neg), routine dewormer, flea control, microchip and spay.
