When getting acquainted with Celeste, it's so good to know that she already knows how to train her human friends. When coming to visit you, she will put her head under your hand. That tells you to start petting her... so you do. And if you stop, her head just nudges you, telling you to start petting again. Soon you will be very obedient! That's because she's just so educational -- and lovable.

This very sweet cuddle bug always wants to be close to her people, following them, curling up in their laps or by their sides, resting her head on them, giving kisses, and gazing at them with those deep, endearing eyes. Then this girl with a big smile also wants to play. Super energetic, she loves all toys, especially soft and squeaky ones!

At bedtime, this house-trained girl gives a little whine, then sleeps all night in her crate. Up again, she's happy to answer to "sit," "shake" and "down." And then do zoomies in the yard. Come meet this loving girl. She can teach you so much!
