Chloe Gets A New Lease On Life
Once left in an abandoned home, Chloe is finding out what a real home feels like and hopeful to find her forever home
Hurricane, UT (November 24, 2013) – When Chloe’s owner was arrested, he made arrangements for Chloe to stay with some friends of his. However, they also got arrested and made arrangements for Chloe to be taken care of by yet a third person. That person also failed in his responsibility to do so. Chloe was left alone in an abandoned house with nothing to eat, except some cat food that maintenance men would give her now and then.
Reports of her abandonment made their way to Because Animals Matter and on two occasions BAM tried to rescue Chloe. When report of BAM's first rescue attempt was shared, BAM representatives were lied to; told that the maintenance people had adopted her. BAM coordinators found out a week later that was not true and volunteers immediately made new arrangements, with the help of rescue volunteer Kim Bean, to get Chloe removed from the house and transported to a waiting BAM foster home. Chloe is in foster care with Patti Dekker and doing great. She is ready for a home that will provide for her for the rest of her life.
Chloe is very mellow, loving and sweet, and while she would love a home to herself she wouldn't mind being in a home with other dogs either. She is somewhat submissive, though not fearful with other dogs. As you can imagine given her story, Chloe could use some training as it appears she hasn't had any. Chloe also seems to be very fond of men. She is spayed and current on her vaccinations as well as house trained. She it not food or toy aggressive with other dogs her size, or puppies slightly smaller than her. She has not been tested yet with tiny dogs, cats or farm animals. If you would like information on meeting or adopting Chloe, call Patti at 801-735-7637. Her adoption fee is $100. Given all she has been through, Chloe is a great dog with a lot of love to share.
