Please meet Chula!
After the Bulldog went to be with our other beloved doggies it left our home without any pups. First time since 1988.
We decided to do some fostering again for South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter. We’ll call it a soft reopening of Camp Joyce.
Chula is a 6 year old female. She is a very shy girl. She needs some confidence building. I have not heard a peep from her….quiet as a church mouse. Crate and potty trained and walks well on a leash in our fenced in yard.
She is doing very well and is ridiculously sweet.
Chula Update Week 2
My beautiful friend has come out of her shell much more. She has bonded with me and is on my heels wherever I go. Still unsure about lots of things but, she makes progress everyday.
Someone broke this girls heart. She has an ever present look of uncertainty and fear. Even when she’s running and wagging her tail and being silly.
She is very well mannered. Silent, except when she shakes her tags to let you know she needs to go out.
Even in the early stages when she would throw a fit if you tried to pick her up or bring her out of her crate, never an ounce of aggression or fear of a nip. She is very sweet natured.
Excellent, low maintenance doggy and will reward a patient human with unending loyalty and love.
She truly deserves a forever home.
Please share with your friends to help her in her journey.
Chula Week 4 – Ready for Her Forever Home
When I look into her eyes my heart breaks. She has seen or been through something that has greatly affected her. She likes being massaged and mully grubbed, but, even then, her eyes hold a deep sorrow.
Despite the constant sadness in her eyes she never mopes or feels sorry for herself. I constantly get tail wags and attentiveness.
She is standoffish, although she will come to me if called and loves to be rubbed on. She does not seek attention. She’s extremely comfortable snoozing on the dog bed while I work.
I let her have her space. When you see her wag her tail and she races through your yard your heart will soar. She loves to explore and sniff everything in the yard. Sometimes she will just stand in the yard with her nose to the wind taking it all in.
She is such a good girl. I imagine a senior adopting her for companionship and love. The fact that she is mild mannered and easy to care for makes her a perfect pet for many older folks.
Our goal is for Chula to find her forever home before the first week in December. We are going on a short vacation. I do not want her to go back to the shelter while we are away.
Such a great little doggie. Please share with your family and friends and see if we can give this deserving girl a forever home.
