Meet Cilla

Cilla is a timid Chi X that was surrendered into our care. She is submissive with other dogs and would love a small or medium canine friend for her to rely on. She absolutely adores her humans but she can be slow to trust you (particuly if you are male). Once she does she will follow you everywhere. She needs an understanding owner (who wont rush her) and who is home a reasonable amount of the time (She is not used to her humans being away for extended periods). She has not previously been a house dog however we think that she would love inside time (It has taken us a while to convince her that she is allowed in occasionally ). Once she is inside she is thrilled to be able to stay with her human. Nothing pleases her more than to snuggle on your lap while you watch TV.

Cilla was adopted on 14 July 2008 after 5 months in foster care
