MY NAME IS CHILLY BUT REST ASSURED I HAVE A WARM HEART!
- LEMON HOUND – 47 Lbs.
- ADULT MALE- EST DOB 2007
- ARRIVED: JANUARY 2014
- HISTORY: Chilly was found wandering locally and arrived very depleted, underweight and in need of a warm place to call home where hot meals were served up on a regular basis.
Just call me Chilly! Found wandering locally on one of THE coldest days of the year, either my lips were blue with cold or the staff person’s lips were blue with cold, but either way, Chilly seemed to be the only, real name for me! Smile. Smile. And you know, I have embraced it. You’ll find when we meet, I can be a bit darting and shy but when I get to know you just a bit, you’ll see I can be a tad “chill” and snuggly and VERY smiley! Slower to warm up to folks, other dogs always make me break into a big, warm smile. My tail wags with great anticipation and I’ll admit I might even kiss other dogs on a first date. My favorite volunteer friend tells me I am being VERY brave and have already made huge strides as I settle in and fine tune my pets skills. She’ll also tell you some of the finer things in life are worth working with and have the biggest hearts. You know, I think she knows me very well, already!
November 2015 Update:
Volunteers tell me that I was a lot more shy when I first arrived in January 2014. They say my circle of friends is expanding every day. They love taking me for walks and they also tell me I’m cute (blush). I love hanging out with other dogs and on a recent trip down to the Scratching Post, I found out that cats are okay too! Come on out and meet me – I’m ready to put my pet skills to work!
February 2017 Update:
Got toys? I need toys! It’s taken some time but Chilly’s eyes light up when presented with a container of toys. He’s a funny guy in that he will carefully select one toy, place it in a “Special Place” and then repeat the process. Sometimes, the toys might even wind up two neat piles if he is left to his own devices and his work is uninterrupted! He’s very respectful of the toys and to see him enjoy this simple pleasure is beyond gratifying for us!
