Cleo is a 7 yr old galga originally from Scooby in Spain. She arrived to SHUG in the US a year ago very fearful of people and other dogs. The shelter was a very scary environment for her. She has since become very confident in her foster home and with the other foster siblings. It takes time for her to trust new people so she needs a very patient home, with very nice dogs. She does things in her time and can’t be hurried. She also much more trusting of women.
Cleo isn’t cat safe, and doesn’t care for children. She’s happiest in a low-key home without a lot of visitors. She’s very much a homebody and likes nice walks, without many people around. She’d rather not attend social events, but is a wonderful companion once she trusts you. She’s sweet, loving, and silly in her foster home....and a bit of a diva. She loves to play outside with the other dogs in her foster home, and especially likes rolling in the cool grass and sunning herself on a bed on the deck.
Cleo won’t be shipped, or sent on a transport. She’s fostered in Indiana and would need to meet adopters with her foster for a transition period. It took a long time for Cleo to find her happy, and we want her to never lose that happy.
Cleo's adoption fee is $650.
NOTE: If Cleo is still listed as available, then she is still available. We are a 100% volunteer organization and most of us have regular "day jobs". Please do not email or call to ask if she's still available, that's super annoying!
