Hi - My name is Chloe and I want to tell you right up front that I have been living a challenging life for the past few years but my foster mom is raving about me beyond belief. These are her exact words “I have never, ever, ever met a more joyous dog, she is just so full of life, and happy, happy, happy, and the better she is feeling, the more joyous she is.”  No, I haven’t been sick. I was just confined to a crate far too long every day for three years and that’s why some of my fur is so discolored. BUT JUST WAIT….the groomer says it will grow out and then I’m going to be so white, fluffy and gorgeous that you’ll think you've adopted an angel. Truth be known, you will be adopting an angel even if I was bald. They just don’t get any better than me….oh……did I just say that? Well, it’s true. Ask my foster mom. 


You want some facts? Hmmmm - let’s see the vet gave me a great bill of health. Except  my skin was a hot mess, due to wrong food/allergies, so the nice vet took impressions of my skin, and I am on medication, and I already feel so much better. Foster mom can share that report with you if you want to apply. But in a nutshell my eyes are perfect, my heart is perfect (and loving) and I’m at my perfect weight. The dental and radiographs turned out great. I now have all of my shots and have been microchipped thanks to Furbaby Rescue. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better…there’s the house training discussion. Foster mom wrote in her report “She’s perfectly house trained, goes to the door and sits quietly looking behind her to see if you notice, and if you don’t notice her, she will start with a soft whine, which will get a bit louder if you keep ignoring her. She’s then trying to say ‘please please let me go to the bathroom’ ”. 


OK - two last things. First, I do need a grain free diet which is just a matter of talking to Foster Mom and get her recommendations for the best grain free choices. I promise you it won’t bust your budget. Speaking of busting your budget here’s the last item. I must confess, I have one teeny tiny fault. I’m a toy-aholic. I’ve tried calling 1-800-2manytoys but it didn’t help. I gave it my every effort but I just love toys too much and I love the humans who give them to me even more. There is good news in this and that is I’m a cheap toyaholic. I don’t need those expensive toys that cost $14.99 each or more that could bust a budget. I’m totally happy with the toy sale bin or even the dollar store as long as you know there’s no eyes or parts that can be chewed off and swallowed. 


Is there anything else you want to know? If not click the link to apply to adopt me. I can’t wait to meet you!

Doggie thoughts:

 “Why won’t they adopt me? Is it because I’m a senior?

I wouldn’t overlook them just because they’re a senior.

Are they afraid of me dying too soon? Well, I might be afraid they’d die too soon if I was a young puppy and then what would happen to me?

Which is worse – to say good-bye to an aged beloved pet or to die yourself and leave your pet behind with an unknown future?”

People thoughts:

For me, a human, I’d rather know that my pet is waiting for me on the other side versus me dying first and leaving my beloved pet’s future to chance. Sometimes those we ask to take over our pet’s care after we’re gone, don’t always do so.  After all, we’d be gone, we’d never know

"The Animals Savior"
Copyright Jim Willis 1999

I looked at the caged animals in the
shelter...the cast offs of human society.

I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread,
sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry
"God," I said "this is terrible! Why don't you
do something?"
God was silent for a moment and than
He spoke softly
"I have done something." He replied
"I created You"
