Meet Chili Bean (20220704-03)
Foster insights/story :
Chili was rescued along with her two sisters and mother. She was a few months old and she was the smartest/fastest out of her siblings. She has great survival instincts and was more challenging to catch. She is the most observant girl.
She is learning how to accept loves and snuggles but is content without them. She will show you her appreciation by licking your hand.
She loves her safe area and is very consistent at retreating there in between activities. Her safe place can be doggie mattress or crate.
She is a creature of habit and loves routines.
She is very submissive with other animals
She is a quiet sweet girl. She’s so smart and will learn with consistency and treats!
She loves her chew toys and is curious with just about anything she is gifted.
She likes to observe everything. So if she’s home alone and has nothing to observe - she might get alittle bored so leaving a tv on would keep her content with her toys.
She’s just a sweetheart.
She loves going for walks and looks forward to being outside, but loves being inside with her human(s) so she can sit back and watch them.
