Hi! I am beautiful blonde Chanel looking for a family with lots of time to spend with me as my life goal is to have everything be about me for a change!
The first 5 years of my life were about me having one litter after another, as I was living in a puppy mill :( So, if you are busy running your kids to activities after school and work all day then I am not your girl.
I arrived June 23 in my foster home. Lots of things about this foster home were new for me, but my foster mom says I am a smart girl and doing great! My foster mom and dad will tell you that I'm a typical golden who loves attention. When they quit paying attention to me, I will push my head into their hands and insist that I need a little more petting.
I really respond well to the dog here in my foster home and I really would like another dog in your home so I have a pal. My only really "bad" habit they will tell you I have is that I am a squirrel nut! I want them badly! I haven't caught one yet, but I am fast and have come really close. Watch out squirrels!
I am still learning my house manners and enjoy pulling Kleenex out of my foster mom's pockets or taking items off a table that I can reach, like greeting cards, etc. I'm learning...
My foster home has cats who have ignored me. I am interested in them, but they pretty much stay away from me.
When I came to the rescue, I tested heartworm positive. I am starting treatment to kill the worms in my heart the week of August 19th, so my future squirrel hunting adventures will be put on hold. I am not a happy camper about this.
My second injection will be mid-September and then I will have another 30 days of limited activity. Then the rescue can give me my vaccinations and can go to my forever home. I will be spayed about 4 months after treatment ends per the vet. It's a long process but it is the only way I can survive. Please give your dogs heartworm medicine every month so they don't have to go through treatment too.
If you would like to donate towards this expense plus all the ultrasounds and heart tests, etc. I had, I know the volunteers at GRRR would greatly appreciate your help! It's not easy paying for all these bills to help dogs like me. They will list your name right here on my page, yay!
I won't be ready to go to my new home until I am all through being treated for heartworm, but that just gives me lots of time to get spoiled and enjoy the start of my new life as a pampered house dog.
They also tell me since I have not been living with children, I will need to go to a home without children under 10 who might be too loud or scare me too much.
A physical fence is required rather then invisible fence so I don't chase after a squirrel and get hit by a car.
If you would like to adopt me when I am ready, please read the adoption policies
on this website and follow the directions from there if you qualify for my adoption.
