Yahoo, my name is Chika; that has a Japanese origin meaning "wisdom" and I think you would be wise to consider adding me to your family. I came to WCHS as a stray and I am now in the market for a new forever home. I am a phenomenal gal but I do need to be your one and only. I do not like other dogs very much so that means no dog buddy for me and no dog parks. Cats drive me a little crazy and I get way overstimulated and have no clue when they try and correct me. All of that means I need to be the only four-legged member of your family. Any children in my home should be 15 years or older because I am sensitive and get nervous around fast movements and lots of activity. I get a little irritated and uncomfortable if people are all grabby with me and sometimes younger children do not appreciate that. I may have a spectacular set of ears but I get anxious when people try and touch them or my mouth - it just seems a bit forward to me. Once I get to know you, I am sure we will be the best of friends and spend lots of time together with cuddles and scratches; I just need you to be patient and take things slow and gentle. I imagine spending glorious hours laying next to you while we enjoy quiet activities. I enjoy going on walks to help keep my girlish 42-pound figure and love all the sights and smells of the great outdoors. If people come around me while I am enjoying a meal or some other valuable resource, I take note and become a tad guarded since I do not know what your plans are. I do not get mad, just aware. One trick that may help me become more comfortable while I am eating is to toss a few yummy treats into my bowl while you walk by; soon I will be looking forward to your brief visits during mealtime. I am smart and think I would enjoy training and other canine activities like nose-work games or other mental challenges. I may sound like I have a lot of idiosyncrasies but with a little work and patience I am sure we can be magnificent together. I promise to be loyal, full of love and your BFF. Stop by to meet me in person, take a few moments to get to know me and prepare to fall in love.
