Cleo has two favorite words: Play and Ball. Put them both together and you know how to please Cleo.
She loves to chase balls. She loves to catch balls. She can catch them on the ground. She can leap up and catch them in the air. She even loves returning balls and dropping them at your feet.
In fact, if you are sitting peacefully on the sofa, she will drop a ball in your lap. Hint. Hint.
If you don't respond, she'll find a second ball to drop in your lap. Hint. Hint. Hint.
And then a third and a fourth. Basically, any ball she can find will end up on your lap. And if you are still too hard hearted to ignore her wishes, she give you the "look," the sad, disappointed luck.
Cleo is about a year old and 35 to 40 pounds. She's solidly housebroken and cuddly ( when she's not in the ball chasing mood). She loves sharing the sofa and the bed.
We don't know why she hasn't found a home yet. She's overdue for finding the people who will love her and keep her forever. Best of all would be someone who likes to run and play as much as she does.
Cleo is a smart dog who knows several commands. She also comes with a prepaid dog obedience course at the Kirkwood Petco. That's in case you don't know all her ( and your) commands. Cleo wants to please you and will do well in an obedience class.
Cleo's ideal home would have a fenced yard.
Come meet her Saturday 11 to 3 at the Kirkwood Petco along with other adoptable dogs.
