Meet Chelsea!

Chelsea is a rough coat petite 4 yr old puppy mill survivor. Chelsea has very expressive eyes, ears and the cutest head tilts. She loves to be held. She sleeps pressed up against her foster mom in the big bed.

When you wiggle fingers in front of her, Chelsea will cautiously step over to your hand and put her head in your palm. Then she drops down onto her front paws placing all her weight in your hand with her little head. It will melt your heart every time! Chelsea also high fives your hand to keep the scratching and petting going. Who's training who here?

Since coming to her foster home she is learning that going in and out of the door is not such a scary thing. She can keep her crate dry for about 3 hours during the day. Chelsea will use a doggy pad with some success. Her potty training and walking on a leash is progressing well.

She will need a forever home that is very calm and quiet. Chelsea needs people who are puppy mill survivor savvy to continue to help Chelsea come out of her fearfulness. Having 2-4 gentle adults to adore her would be Chelsea's idea of heaven.

Chelsea will do best where she is the only dog or where there is only one small submissive male dog. She is just beginning to learn to interact with other dogs and has started to play bow with them. It is so cute to watch.

Her ideal home would be with stay at home and/or retired adults who can spend a lot of time with her -- adults who are willing to let Chelsea progress at her own pace, which is slowly and calmly. They will be rewarded with a little lap dog who so appreciates all the love and understanding you can give her.

Chelsea is spayed, microchipped, current on her vaccinations, heart worm negative and is on preventative. She is located in Georgetown, Texas.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Flo.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
