Hello, my name is Chloe. I recently arrived in rescue with my siblings when my owner could not find homes for us. I did not previously live in a home so I am learning a lot of new things. My new family needs to be prepared to finish my housetraining. I am a shy pup who is a little under socialized with people.
What I love to do: Currently I am living with a mom, dad, three daughters, my sibling and a pile of other dogs. I am not too sure of foster dad and seem to be more scared of him than some other men I have met. I sleep in bed with my furry and human family but do need to go out potty 1 time during the night. I go out again first thing when it is time to get up. I eat at a reasonable pace but will check everyone else's food when I am done . After breakfast I check on my family and sniff all over the house and run around out in the yard. I love to run and I am quick. I love to chase after scents and I love getting my sister to chase me, or I chase her or the other dogs or run with the kids.
When people are gone during the day I am in my kennel, currently with my sibling. We are getting really good at going in there when it is time, thanks to all the treats we get. After school/work is done I go outside to play and run around, snuggle on the couch, chew on toys, eat my dinner, watch tv, run around outside a few more times and settle in for bedtime around 9 pm.
Personal goals: I am about 75% of the way potty trained, so I have a bit to go. I have been keeping my kennel dry lately when everyone is gone. I do get startled by new things and will howl at new sounds, people who startle me, or things I don't know. I am not leash trained and pretty uncomfortable with it so right now I am not safe to go out for a walk or be on a tie-out. I have gotten more comfortable wearing a harness and doing some leash walking in the yard. I am not a fan of the bath but as I am small it isn't terribly difficult to manage. I am not very comfortable in the car but will settle and lay down after a bit.
Favorite thing to do with my best friend: I currently really love most people, and snuggling with other dogs, and especially my sibling. I like sniffing everything and playing outside but I am ready to go in when mom says it is time. I like tug of war and toys.
Kind of family I want: I would like a family that is not gone long days every day as I am young and still potty training. Currently, my family is gone up to 7 hours 2-3 days per week and I am doing ok with that. I still need training, entertainment, and attention. A fenced yard would be preferable as I love to run and have puppy energy and am not at all used to a leash and collar. So far it does not seem like I would be very happy as an only dog as I love to play with other dogs, but maybe it would be ok for the right living situation with someone home a lot. I currently do a lot of things with my sibling as we have been together our whole lives but my foster mom does think I could be adopted out without her as I am not as brave and do not follow her if I am unsure.
Biggest fears: New things startle me and I have been known to bark at my reflection, and I am not sure about foster dad.
Ideal weekend plans: I just want to hang out with my family and get plenty of play time and exercise.
