Greetings! My name is Chloe, and I am a 10 year old gal looking for my forever! My story is a bit of a sad one, as I found myself in rescue when my owner died. My world was turned upside down upon losing him, but don’t worry. I have thick skin. No, seriously…my skin has actually thickened over time due to some previous issues related to allergies. You may notice my hair looks a little thin in some areas, and my skin looks a bit dry but I promise I’m okay! I have some special foam and shampoo that can be used to help keep me comfortable, as well as some allergy meds I take as needed. While we are on the subject of meds, I also take one to prevent seizures. I have not experienced any while with the rescue, or in quite some time overall. So, the pills definitely work their magic.
Speaking of magic, I can promise my bond with my adopter(s) will be just that! I love nothing more than being with people. I LOVE to cuddle. I hope you’ll let me snooze in your bed, occupy your lap, and come to holidays with the family! I have been attending rescue events and visiting a local nursing home and love everyone I meet! Men, women, children- lets be friends! While my thoughts on cats are unwritten, I do enjoy the company of other dogs. I would really like a calm canine pal in the home. I could thrive as your one and only if you happen to be retired, or home a lot. I do tend to bark some when you initially leave, so walls shared with neighbors are not the best type of residence for me. While I enjoy having a fenced yard, I am great on a leash so its not a deal breaker! ( I REALLY want you to stay outside with me anyway, and let my foster mom know I want to come in if she is heading inside). I am house trained, but may have a few accidents when adjusting to new surroundings. I should also mention I ride best when secured in the car. My excitement gets the best of me, and I think I should drive if left to roam the vehicle. I am only 11 pounds, so a kennel or car seat that fits nicely in the back seat will do just fine! Boy, I sure hope my forever family would like to take me places with them and love me for all of my days! Maybe you have a small space for me in your home?

Disclaimer: It is VERY difficult even for a veterinarian to tell the exact age of a dog over two years old. From one vet to another, we can get different age estimates on the same dog and they can vary by several years. We are only making an educated guess based on a few factors like teeth, fur color, and overall body condition, but for dogs who have not been given adequate vet care and food, it can be even more difficult. Every dog is an individual, and we do our very best to age appropriately but make no guarantees as to the age of any dog in our program.
