Looking for a sweet, smart and fun loving gal who will always adore you? Chloe is a 2-3 year old Cattle Dog who had a rough start, but is ready for her perfect forever home. She’s an athletic and energetic dog who will make a great hiking companion or sport dog. She’s very smart and trainable, and highly food motivated. Maybe a little too food motivated at times, as she gets so excited when treats are involved that her whole body quivers and she can barely contain herself! She’s a total love bug once she gets to know you, a silly girl who loves attention but doesn’t need to be in your face all the time.
Chloe currently weighs around 40 lbs. after losing several pounds in foster care, but could stand to lose a few more. She walks nicely on a regular harness without pulling and loves nothing more than to go for walks, especially on trails.
Chloe rides well in the car, as long as she’s given some ginger or anti-nausea med ½ to one hour ahead of time.
Although fearful of larger dogs and in-your-face type dogs, Chloe got along fine with an older, calm cattle dog mix who was already in the home upon arrival. She would be great as an only dog, but a laid back male dog around her own size may work. She is a bit squirrel obsessed, and is anxious to give chase to critters including cats, so a cat-free home is a must. A yard with a physical fence is preferred, but depending on location and her adopters’ experience with off-leash training, it may not be required. No underground fencing please.
Chloe is protective of the home towards visitors, but is easily redirected. We’re working with a positive trainer to modify this behavior and feel confident this can be overcome with continued work. She’s extremely responsive to her person’s verbal cues, which makes training easy. She should go to a home with breed experience who is willing and dedicated to working with her protective behavior using positive methods.
Chloe is crate trained, but she’s currently left loose in the house while foster mom goes to work.
Chloe is initially fearful of strangers, particularly men. She will warm up fairly quickly to new women with patience and treats. A woman-only / adult-only home is preferred, but she may be okay with a man who is calm and patient, and allows her to accept him at her own pace. She cannot go to a male-only home and a home without young children is needed. She wouldn’t do well in an apartment as she has a loud booming bark if she hears noises outside. She’s not a chronic barker, though.
Overall, Chloe is a true gem of a dog, loving and devoted to her person, and totally adorable!
Chloe is spayed and housetrained, heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventatives. She is being fostered in South Williamsport, PA.
