Cleo

Hi! My name is Cleo. I’m somewhere around 4-5 years old. We aren’t really sure because somehow I ended up in the woods out in the country. A nice farmer saw me eating her trash, and she decided to feed me and let me sleep on her porch. I lived on her porch for about a year. It was so nice having a porch to sleep on, but the thing is, I hate thunderstorms. And one night during a really bad one, I got so excited I accidentally scratched up the doorframe. I just really wanted to go inside where I felt safe. Mr. Farmer didn’t like that I scratched up the door frame so he told Mrs. Farmer she had to find a new home for me.

A fun family with three little kids came to my rescue. They are the best. I just love going on walks and hikes with them. They have another dog about my size named Ralph, and we have a great time chasing each other and battling for big sticks. The thing is, as much as I love little kids, I just can’t seem to get used to them. I like giving them kisses, but their big energy and little hands make me feel uneasy. I would probably be OK with kids 12 yrs and older . I sure am going to be sad leaving my new family. They have reminded me how wonderful it is to be a house dog again.

I am looking for someone who will love me the rest of my years. I’m kind of an older girl who’s ready to settle down. Walks are my favorite, but I need someone experienced with big dogs who can continue to leash train me. I feel most comfortable lounging around the house when you’re gone but I love to play outside too!

Do you think you could be my forever owner?
