Little Chloe is a 5-year old ex-puppy farm girl who is being fostered in RCT, South Wales. She is learning how to be a family pet. All the normal household surroundings we take for granted are very strange to her but patience and love will help her to learn to accept them. 

People – Chloe is happy around adults once trust is gained but has not been in the company of children. For this reason, she will only be re-homed with older children. Chloe is very affectionate and likes nothing more than being fussed once she has gained your trust. 

Dogs –  Chloe is happy around other dogs and must live with at least 1 other resident canine.

Cats – Not cat tested

In the home – Chloe can be left for short periods with other dogs for company. Chloe is showing signs of being food dominant which is a characteristic of her history. She displays as hungry but is simply a fast eater following her past experience. She loves treats and is a very intelligent girl and can pick up commands from the third telling. She is fearful of loud noises, unexpected voices or movement and scared of human approach until she is familiar. Chloe’s housetraining is a work in progress. She is learning to use stairs and this must be supervised. 

Out and about – Chloe does not travel well and has a tendency to be car sick. The outside world is a frightening place for her and her ventures into this scary world have been limited.

Type of home – Chloe must have humans around most of the time and her family must be able to demonstrate the patience she needs to lead-train. She isn’t keen on loud noises so a home with young or boisterous children would be unsuitable. Must have another dog in the home. 

Please remember, if you have a dog and it is not neutered, it is against our policies to re-home a dog with you.

Chloe is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in Rhondda, South Wales
