If you would like to have the wildlife in your backyard monitored, you should come meet Chelli! This sweet lady is content to gaze out the window at those pesky birds and squirrels. Then she'll want to venture out to stalk them around the trees and bushes. It's her idea of playing. Such fun!

This very well-behaved girl also loves going on walks, adventures and car rides with her human friends, strolling well on her leash and calmly meeting new people. At home, she's a quiet, calm girl who's happy to lay down and chill out, just giving her people some kisses. She even stays off the furniture.

A smart, attentive lady, she listens well to her humans, and wants to please them. She answers to "sit," especially when she knows dinner is coming. She's also a house-trained lady who sleeps very well in her crate, and is happy to chill in her crate when she's left alone.

Chelli hopes for a home where she can hang out with a family most of the time, and one with a backyard where she can roll in the grass. She would also do well with a quiet, docile doggie companion, but would prefer to stay away from felines. She is heartworm positive, but that just means she'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet this adorable lady.
