About Chloe:
Are you looking for something tiny but bursting with love? A dog who loves being in your lap as much as possible and getting all the attention in the world? Well then today is your lucky day because I am that perfect little snuggle bug. Once I get settled in to my home I am also an excellent little watchdog. I’m not a barker, but I will let you know when there is a stranger approaching the house. I am friendly meeting other dogs but I prefer to be the only dog in my family. Staff can tell you more about me. Why don’t we visit? I’m a great lap warmer!
