My name is Chakita and my owner passed away just before the holidays. Sadly, his family could not keep me so I was shelter bound until New Hope Intervened. I’m a sweet, affectionate little girl who loves playing “dress up”.

My favorite playmate in the house is actually a 4 year old little boy. I just adore him.  I love when he pets and cuddles me and picks me up. Overall, I do well with other dogs but can get snippy when I’m “hangry” but I bet you do too!  Just feed me separately from other pets and we are good to go!

Foster mom says I have “Low to medium” energy level because I prefer snuggling with humans over playing.  My crate training is going well so far and I have been left alone uncrated as well.

I’m very sweet with people, but can be fussy with female dogs. Foster mom thinks I might do best with male dogs or as an only dog.
