A volunteer writes: One two, Cha Cha Cha! I love that this dog’s name is Cha Cha as she’s friendly, lively, loves to meet new people and loves to snuggle. A lively name for a lively dog. Surrendered back to us due to her owner’s poor health we’re told she’s housetrained (check), lived with children, lived with cats and was relaxed, playful and tolerant of all. She plays exuberantly with other dogs, is friendly to everyone, loves to play chase and with stuffed toys, and is well behaved when left home alone. I loved meeting Cha Cha, she’s friendly, wiggle butt, and so happy to meet new people. A staff photographer came into our pen to take some pictures, Cha Cha play bowed to her and all she then wanted to do was kiss and snuggle with her! Too cute. She loved playing with a plush toy tossing it around to chase it again. Showing off her ‘sit’ she then took her reward treat with the very edge of her teeth and I barely felt her on my hand. I left the pen for a minute and when I returned
Cha Cha was quietly waiting for my return, wagging her tail and smiling when I came back inside. She’s an awesome, proven family dog who would love nothing more than a new family to love. Don’t pass up the opportunity to make her yours.
Another volunteer writes: To know Cha Cha is to love Cha Cha. Not only is she a super friendly equal opportunity snuggler, she has an important job as a ‘helper dog’ in group play, getting other dogs comfortable and adapting her play style to theirs. She works hard, she’s good at it, and in between playdates loves to snuggle with the handler team. She has a lively awesome spirit, a proven family dog who’s gorgeous, friendly and a total delight. She’s ready to dance into your life and make herself at home. What are you waiting for?
Cha Cha is a 3 year old spayed APBT / GSD mix. Her family got her from a neighbor 2 years ago. Her owner can no longer care for her due to his rapidly declining health.
Cha Cha is friendly/outgoing with strangers. She lived with children in her previous home. She plays exuberantly with people. She’s relaxed, playful, tolerant, and plays exuberantly with other dogs. She lived with cats and is relaxed, playful, affectionate, and tolerant with them. She’s never bit anyone.
Cha Cha doesn’t mind storms. She’s friendly with strangers who approach her home/family. She doesn’t mind when someone takes her food/treat/toy, moves her off furniture, holds/restrains her, wakes her up, or bathes her.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Cha Cha’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, excitable, and high energy. She plays chase and likes stuffed toys and rope toys. She lived inside and slept with her owner. She ate dry Purina food. Cha Cha is housetrained and potties every time she goes outside. Due to her owner’s health, she was walked infrequently, so she pottied on newspapers while inside. Cha Cha is well-behaved while home alone. She went for brisk walks and runs on her leash. She pulls on the leash.
Cha Cha approached us with a super loose, wiggly body, open mouth, and wagging tail. She maintained this while we pet her, scanned her (-), collared her, positioned her for pictures, examined her, and vaccinated her. She ate treats off the floor. Cha Cha wanted to walk through the door towards where her owner left, but walked with us when we talked to her excitedly and started running in the opposite direction. She was tense but tolerant while we picked her up and put her in her kennel.
