Bon jour! I am Celina, and I am a soulful senior sweetie who dreams about a quiet home to call my own after a lifetime of being left to wander and fend for myself. I was surrendered to an overcrowded Texas shelter by my previous owner because I was frequently found wandering the neighborhood with no supervision, and made my way to Chicagoland to find a loving forever family who will give me the life I deserve. My dream home will include a secure yard with a fence so I can safely roam and romp around to enjoy the great outdoors. Although I am no longer a puppy, I do enjoy a good run around the yard from time to time! I currently share a foster home with adoptable Leo, a young beagle, and we love playing together. I enjoy the company of other dogs, but do best with slow introductions so we can get to know each other safely.

I am already potty and crate trained, but I am still learning how to soak up affection and attention so I will thrive with patient humans who will give me time to settle in and feel safe. I would prefer an adult-only home where someone is home often, but if you have kiddos I think I would do best with older ones who understand my shy personality. I would also benefit from positive reinforcement training because it would help us work on our bond and help with my self-confidence. I have already decided that I really love head massages and butt scratchies, and will politely ask my foster momma to give me some. I am enjoying all the nice pets, praise, and treats I get in my foster home, and my simple dream is for a loving forever family that will fill the rest of my life with lots of love and pampering. If you can make my dreams come true, please fill out an adoption application!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
