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
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

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

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.
