Cheeta is one of a litter of 8 puppies born around 5/29/18. The person who surrendered the litter to a high-kill shelter when the pups were just 8 weeks old said only that the mama dog was a Jack Russell Terrier. The breed of the father (or fathers) is unknown. It’s been a real joy watching Cheeta and her siblings grow up from roly, poly waddling pups to sometimes graceful, sometimes clumsy but always adorable young dogs! Like most pups, Cheeta is full of energy and has a playful personality once she’s comfortable. One of the smaller pups in the litter, Cheeta is also a little more timid than some of her siblings. She’s very loving but it takes her a little longer to adapt to new people/situations/surroundings. Cheeta also needs a little work on leash-walking but, thanks to our awesome dog-walkers, she is getting more comfortable with this. A group obedience class and perhaps one or two private lessons would greatly benefit Cheeta from a ‘confidence’ standpoint. Cheeta uses the newspaper in her kennel but, because a shelter is a completely different environment than a house, Cheeta’s new owner should have the patience, time and experience to work with her on house-training if it proves necessary. Feeding her and taking her outside for walks and potty breaks on a consistent schedule is key as she has proven here that she quickly adapts to a routine. Cheeta has had all her vaccinations (including the canine flu), is spayed, micro-chipped and on monthly flea and heartworm preventatives. If you have room in your heart and home for this shy little gal, just stop by the shelter to meet her. She ready, willing and able to give her adopter an abundance of love, laughter and happiness! /// CHEETA IS SPONSORED THRU FEBRUARY 2019 BY OUR FRIENDS AT BATEY BROPHY LAW OFFICE.
