Check out Chiquita's notes from foster! Email to ask about her!

How long have you fostered this animal?

2 Months

What type of food does this animal prefer?

She is not a picky eater.

Would you say this animal is vocal, quiet or somewhere in between?

Extremely quiet, I have never heard her bark.

Was this animal around KIDS (if so, please describe their reaction):

She is very social and good around kids. She is extremely calm and approached kids wagging her tail and said hi.

Was this animal around CATS (if so, please describe their reaction):

I have not seen here really interact with a cat other than stray cats around campus.

Was this animal around DOGS (if so, please describe their reaction):

When she was with other dogs she would say hi to them but not much else. Being an older dog she didn't seem to show interest in wanting to play, bark, or bite the other dog.

How would you describe your home environment (calm, busy, chaotic, etc)

Very calm, she is as low maintenance as a dog can be. At the same time, she loves attention. While sitting on the couch she will nose her way in so that you will pet her.

Does s/he have any behavioral issues that you are aware of?

None what so ever.

Is s/he fearful of any objects, situations, or people? (if so, describe)


When left alone, where does s/he sleep?

She is a huge sleeper, she sleeps through the nite without any problems and I have left her alone for several hours and she will just continue to sleep with no problems at all.

Is this animal house-trained or litter box trained?

House trained, in the two months having her she has never had an accident inside.

What toys, if any, does your foster enjoy playing with?

She does not have an interest in toys. Sometimes she gets hyper and enjoys running and jumping on walks for short periods of time before she gets tired.

If a DOG, is this animal crate-trained?

Living with me she has started to not like her crate, she prefers to sleep in my room with me, after living at the shelter for 6 months I don't blame her for enjoying to have some room to sleep.

If a DOG, describe their leash behavior:

Extremely good on a leash, does not pull on the leash, walks right next to you.
