Zack and Jim’s Waco 100 Pet of the Week is Chatita!
Chatita is an exuberant lady who believes dashing around the play yard chasing tennis balls is an excellent way to spend a sunny, fall afternoon.
While she is playful, Chatita remembers her manners and consistently practices good behavior. She’s friendly and a huge fan of people, but she is respectful and loving to everyone she meets. She’s also polite to other dogs and seems to be okay with the idea of living with a canine sibling.
She thinks treats are the bomb, but she’s never grabby. Chatita gently accepts an offered snack and flaps her tail as a courteous thank you to her presenter.
This beauty is full of life and she is always up for a doggie game or an evening stroll. She walks fantastic on a leash by the way, she also understands basic commands, and she is attentive to her surroundings.
Chatita is a wonderful lady, but she’s 6 years old, and she has to compete with the youngsters around her for potential adopters attention. It’s harder to get noticed, much less adopted when you’re older.
She needs people to stop passing by her kennel. Age is only a number, and she wants the opportunity to show the world what a fantastic companion she’d make to the right person.
Chatita has been at the shelter since 10/10/18, and she is currently number 2 on the urgent list. She has been a perfect guest during her shelter stay, but she thinks it’s time to toss her visitor tag in the garbage and head to her much deserved forever home for the holidays.
How about spending the afternoon at the shelter and hang out with this sweetheart, then maybe take her home? Chatita is a female, spayed, German Shepherd/lab mix. Her adoption is sponsored, so she is free to adopt to an approved adopter.
Chatita is only one of the many older dogs waiting at the Waco Shelter for an adopter, foster, or rescue. There are many benefits from adopting a senior dog. Most seniors already know commands, can walk on a leash, and are house trained.
That’s not to say that older dogs can’t learn new tricks. They certainly can. They are also as playful as their younger counterparts. They may just run out of juice quicker!
Senior dogs make grateful, devoted companions. Hurry to the shelter today and meet Chatita or one of her mature friends. Consider giving them a forever home for the holidays.
Adding a homeless, senior dog to your family is the best gift you’ll ever give yourself.
