Positive for heartworms?: 
Extraordinary Golden Fund recipient?: 

GRR Number: 17-042

Type of Surrender: Owner Turn In

Status: Available Soon

Age: 12

Weight: 86 (needs to lose 15)

Personality: Sweet, sweet, sweet. This is the way the foster family describes this pudgy, lovable girl named Chula. Chula lived all her life with the same family until she was moved to the backyard because a new member of the household decided that’s where Chula belonged. Rather than see this continue, her family surrendered her to GRR.

Yes, we used the word “pudgy” but we mean it with affection. Once Chula loses some weight, which her foster family is working on, she’ll likely feel a whole lot better. She is also taking fish oil supplements to help her coat grow healthy and shiny.

Chula is completely housetrained and is free to roam about the house. She’s an easy-going gal around other dogs and since she is gentle by nature, she’d probably be fine with kittys. She rides great in the car but could use a little more help with leash manners. She sleeps soundly through the night and is a voracious eater…thus the extra pounds! But with a change of diet, those pounds will hopefully melt away. This will likely help her with the stiff joints she has.

Ideal Home: Chula totally deserves a forever family that has time to give her lots of love and affection. All she needs to be happy in her last years are lots of kisses, some short walks around the neighborhood, and a nice soft bed on which to lay her head.
