If you work from home and would like a buddy to hang out and watch you click your mouse, Chelsea can be your girl. This very sweet, calm lady is quiet and enjoys playing with her toys. And she's a curious girl who enjoys being outside and exploring the backyard. So, she'll give you lots of time to do your job. And if you'd rather take her for walks, she's very happy to do that, too.

Now in foster care, Chelsea is a momma whose puppies are weaned, so she's off to a new life. She's getting along well with her small doggie companion, wanting to play with her. She seems interested in playing with their cat, too, but it's a bit wary of her. She mostly wants to be with her people, sitting by them and getting their petting. She can be energetic, wanting to play in the house and eager to go for leash walks and gallop around the back yard, but is having some leg and hip discomfort that's slowing her down. After treatment and recovery, she may become a running buddy.

A curious, smart girl, she understands "sit" and is learning about "stay." She sometimes needs to be persuaded with treats to go in her crate, then settles down nicely and does well when her fosters are away. And she is house-trained, having had only two accidents. She also accepts tub baths and has figured out how to roll around on towels and dry herself.

Chelsea seems adaptable to all kinds of homes. She loves to be with her people all day, but also seems to do well when home alone. And she may prefer to have a furry sibling, but will be fine as the only pet in a loving home. Come meet this lovable girl! And see more about her on Instagram: wunder_foster_pets
