Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Terrier (long coat)
Weight: 25.1 lbs
Estimated Birthdate: 4/1/2009
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Chloe's family could not care for her skin issues and surrendered her to a SC shelter. CPR pulled her from a local shelter.
Special Needs: Chloe has chronically thickened skin and patchy issues of itchy, crusty skin. Chloe just completed an 8-day protocol of Simplicef to help with her skin. She will require high end flea/tick preventative for the rest of her life to help manage her skin issues.
What kind of home would be best for me: We don't know what Chloe's previous family might have been, but we know her home must have been quiet. She is a calm, almost aloof girl who will do best in a quiet environment. Chloe would love a retired family who is looking for a quiet girl to share their lives with. She would not do well in a home with lots of kids, activity and visitors.
What is my personality like: Chloe is an even-tempered girl who really hasn't shown us much of her personality yet. Like a human hiding behind bad skin, perhaps our beautiful girl has just been waiting for her coat to grow in before she shows us her true colors!
Chloe lives easily among other dogs and is gentle with her caregivers. So far, she has not shown much interest in playing with other dogs and has not been cat tested. Chloe is a happy eater and very gentle taking treats from her caregivers. Put Chloe on a leash and take her for a walk and she comes to life. She is curious about exploring new areas and will need a harness when walking as she gets overly ambitious about checking our new areas and will pull on a lead. Chloe does not seem to know any real commands. She is not overly food motivated but we are working with her on basics such as sit and down. Chloe does come when you call her - she just needs positive affirmation. Finally, we believe cars may not have been a huge part of Chloe's past. She prefers a calming hand on her during a ride to help her understand she is safe. A window rolled down with fresh air is an added bonus.
For the person that invests time in Chloe, you are rewarded with a gentle demeanor and precious spirit. It is worth the work!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Chloe is somewhat leery of new people. She is not fearful, but does not typically walk up to a new person and ask for affection. Chloe needs time to warm up before she will show you her true personality.
Tips and Tidbits: It has been said that beauty is only skin deep. Check out Chloe's before and after photos on her profile to fully understand the transformation this beautiful girl has experienced with appropriate treatment for bad skin.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
