Chickadee and her siblings Finch and BlueBird found themselves unwanted and dumped at a Vet Clinic in West Texas. They were bound for the high kill shelter if we did not say yes.  They were brought in with injuries and thankful they are all healed up and healthy.  Ready for their forever homes.  They are good with other dogs and kids, cats are unknown. All dogs and puppies require supervision and training. 

 Chickadee can be slow to warm up to strangers but has been going to dog friendly events and is getting better with her shyness of strangers. This beautiful girl is potty and crate trained. She gets along with other dogs and loves to run and tumble with her foster dog brothers. She has been exposed few short times to cats and seems to have a healthy respect towards them. She has stayed a a home with a 5 & 7 year old and she loves the kids. Chickadee once she gets to know you( which does not take long) is a loving and loyal dog. She likes to learn and would be a fun dog to take to dog school.

 Chickadee spent a week as an only dog in a home with 2 young boys and did very well with them. The following from the family that watched her for that week: My family had the pleasure of watching Chickadee for a week in March. I was expecting Chickadee to take at least a couple of days to settle in, but she seemed comfortable and content after just a few hours. She was very quiet overall, and I only heard her bark once or twice during her time with us. While at home she loved to curl up on the rug in our living room or sit on a bench in the kitchen so she could look outside. She also enjoyed lounging on the bed in my sons’ room and seemed to want to be where we were hanging out.

We weren’t sure how Chickadee would do with younger children (ages 5 and 6) since she hadn’t spent much time around kids, but the boys instantly took to her and she to them. She allowed them to hug, kiss, and pet her and was tolerant of their high energy and near constant movement. It was fun to witness their bond develop throughout Chickadee’s visit.

Chickadee did great on walks around the neighborhood. She didn’t pay much attention to people or pups walking past. She did warm up to folks at the bus stop after a day or so and showed more confidence when around them. She also loved hanging out in our fenced-in backyard. She found a spot right in the middle of our garden-area where she would plop down and nap in the sun. We had a snowstorm at the end of Chickadee’s stay and she seemed to equally love the
