Cleo is in urgent need of a new foster home or an adoptive home because she is not getting along with the other dog in her current placement. She has to be on a separate floor of the home and is very upset with the separation. Cleo would do best as an only dog in the home. Besides her inability to live with another pet, Cleo’s foster mom reports that she is the perfect dog. She is great with people, loves toys, walks well on leash, enjoys car rides, and is completely housebroken. Cleo hates being crated or separated from her family, so a home with somebody there often or a person who can take her to work would be best. Cleo loves bananas, cantaloupe, and strawberries. She takes treats very gently out of your hand. She has been learning her basic commands. Cleo’s current foster home is devastated that she will have to transition again, but we need to find her a placement soon for the safety of both dogs. Cleo is an amazing girl who has been through a lot of adjustments recently. If you are able to provide a foster or forever home for Cleo, please apply today for this sweet girl!

Cleo has been settling in nicely at her new foster home. She is in foster with a senior male dog, but Cleo has been separated from him due to some reactivity. Her foster mom will continue to do gradual introductions in hopes of eventually acclimating Cleo with him. Cleo has a very high prey drive and can not live with cats. Her foster mom indicates that Cleo loves people and bonds very quickly. She also loves to be outside and walks well on leash. Cleo has met several neighbors on her walks and she loves them all! She is moderately active and loves to play outside, but Cleo also enjoys chilling on the couch or sleeping next to her human. She gives great kisses and really wants to please her people, which should help with training. Cleo takes treats very gently and especially loves bananas. She would do best in a quieter setting outside of the city. Cleo’s ideal adopter would be someone who is home frequently or can take her to work with them.

After spending a month in our boarding kennel, a volunteer was able to pick up Cleo and Zoey to get them back into a home. Unfortunately, Cleo and Zoey got into several fights with each other and they had to be separated for their safety. They will be going to separate foster homes this week and we will update their page once we learn more about their needs.

Cleo and Zoey lost their home when their owner became ill and went to a nursing home. An out of state family member was able to get them to an animal advocacy group to make sure these girls would be safe. They are in urgent need of a foster home together or separate foster homes with a resident male dog for a companion. They are currently in a temporary placement at a vet’s office while they are being brought up to date on care. We don’t want them sitting in boarding long term, so if you can foster one of these girls – please apply so they can get back into a home as soon as possible. Cleo just turned 8 years old this month. She is reported to be good with other dogs, but would do best in a home without cats.
