If you would like to meet Chloe for a cuddle to assess suitability please complete the Expression of Interest form.
Chloe has been well socialised.
Chloe lives with 2 cats but she does tend to chase them. We recommend a home without cats.
Yes but might accidentally knock one over. We recommend any kids be primary school aged or older and only if gentle and calm.
Medium - playful and energetic.
How is this dog on a lead?
She starts off pulling like most dogs but settles down nicely. Chloe is able to refocus after a few minutes with positive reinforcement.
How is this dog off the lead?
For a puppy she is progressing well with recall but needs more training.
Nuisance barker or destructive?
No. But if you leave her alone with nothing to do for prolonged periods of time she may chew on some-thing.
Tolerance to being alone.
Chloe can tolerate being by herself but she much prefers being with someone. Chloe is used to being alone for approximately 6 hours a day. She would probably prefer a doggy friend rather than no one. Preference will be given to homes where she is not alone for extended periods of time – we don’t want her sleeping her life away.
Chloe likes having a routine and new experiences. By far she loves company. Other favourite things include playing tug, fetch, sniffing for treats, getting a good back scratch, cracking into a good bone, rolling around in the grass, going to the beach, splashing in water, and curling up on the couch at night.
Chloe does not like being alone for extended periods of time or being ignored. Loud noises can frighten her too. She seems to be fine during storms or heavy weather.
As she is still a puppy her new family will need to have the time and skills to continue with her basic training – not a huge task as she is easy to train and very smart. Her family will need to be relatively active and specifically looking for a dog to be a significant part of their life. She would prefer a medium to large secure yard. She would love having another doggy for company too.
Chloe will not suit homes where residents are very young, frail, elderly or time poor.
Chloe is an intelligent and playful pup who is eager to please. She is a joy to be around and a great companion to go on new adventures with.
Another dog walloped Chloe at the park and hurt her leg. The vet and even the specialist expect a full recovery but she needs her activity to be monitored for 10-12 weeks until everything heals. This means 15 minutes walks twice daily and low impact exercise – no jumping around. If you can help this adorable pup get through this period of her life she will reward you with years of devotion and fun times. Genuine applicants are welcome to speak to her vet.
Chloe's current carer's work and are unable to provide the supervision needed to manage her injury. Despite their best intentions she will never recover where she currently is and needs re-homing as a high priority. Chloe is vaccinated, sterilised and micro chipped.
