Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Please watch a short video of Chia below:
Chia, but a little thing, is quite loving with her foster family and doesn't take long to warm up to new people. She loves running,
climbing, and exploring new environments. She loves fetching balls and other toys, and finding treats in interactive food toys. She
is housetrained! She enjoys her walks, though she does not love meeting other dogs on walks right now. She gets along with the other
two small dogs in her foster home very well, has gotten along with doggy visitors, and could benefit from joining a household with a
resident role model dog who stays calm or enjoys being around other dogs. We think Chia is best suited to an area that doesn't have
a lot of doggy foot traffic so she doesn't need to tell lots of dogs how tough she is on leash. Her foster mom reports she has not
been a barker at home, even when the other dogs are barking. She enjoys training for treats and reliably sits and lies down on cue.
To inquire about Chia, e-mail or call (831) 454-7218. We look forward to hearing from you!
