MEET CHEEKY….a white, 8 yr old, 13.4 lb (bit overweight!), female Poodle mix, who comes to LHH from the same home as Lilly, but they do not need to go together.  Her young mom is going off to college and did not want to leave either dog with the family.  Cheeky has also been kept outside and it is time for that to end!  We are told that she is an alert barker, which is probably because she is left outside and the stimulus is what causes that.  For that reason, we think she would be better off in a home vs. an apartment.  Unlike Lilly, Cheeky loves to play with toys…and she gives lots of kisses, is good in the car, loves long walks and has her “hyper” moments!  She would be good with kids over 8 yrs old.  She is a big foodie, but you have to count your fingers after you give her a treat as she gets a little over excited!  Plus, she likes to eat alone (without other dogs)!!  Cheeky is a bit apprehensive of new people, but settles down once introduced!  She is very playful and loves belly rubs…but is not fond of being carried, as she gets a bit nervous.  We believe once she is settled in a new, positive environment, this can be overcome.  Do you have the time, space and love to give to this little orphan!?
