Clara is a beautiful, 7-year-old, black brindle cairn
girl. She came into CLSR recently from a puppy mill that
Since arriving at CLSR, she has been spayed, had a
dental, and has had all of her shots brought up to date.
Clara was a very light heartworm positive when she came to
us, but her heartworm treatment has been successfully
completed now and she's heartworm free. She receives
monthly heartworm medication at her foster home.
Clara had a terribly matted coat when she first
arrived, so she had to be completely shaved down. Her coat
is now beginning to grow back out though. As you can see
in her pictures, Clara is going to be absolutely stunning
when she has her full coat of hair back. :)
Clara is doing extremely well on her potty training.
She keeps her crate clean with no accidents and only uses
her newspaper in her x-pen if her Foster Mom is gone for a
long period of time. She also keeps her x-pen dry all
night long. Her foster home has a doggy door and Clara
caught on to using it very quickly, so she takes herself
outside into the backyard to potty when duty calls.
This little one has a wonderful, very happy
disposition. In fact, she seems to smile all the time.
She is a very quiet girl and you rarely hear her. She
likes to follow her Foster Mom everywhere and watches
everything that Foster Mom does very intently, thereby
learning all about living inside a house. Unlike many mill
dogs, house noises have not scared her at all.
It's so funny to watch Clara when you give her a
treat! She will drop it on the floor, pounce on it with
her front legs, grab it up off the floor, toss it in the
air, and then when it falls back to the floor she will then
roll on it. After that, she will either eat it -- or bury
it inside her crate in her bedding for a midnight snack.
She gets so excited playing with her treat that her tail
just wags and wags, and she has a wonderful time with it.
Clara evidently has never had treats before.
Clara gets along with all the other dogs in her foster
home, both males and females. She doesnâ€™t really initiate
play wit... (Continued)
