Checkers was picked up as a stray and ended up at an overcrowded shelter where she was very frightened. Once Checkers was out of the shelter, her personality began to shine. She is a quiet, gentle, and timid girl with a few tricks up her sleeve. She sits like a little soldier and even knows the down command. Treats are everything to Checkers. She is a quick study and will do anything you ask of her for the tiniest treat. Her history with children, cats, and other dogs is unknown at the moment as she just arrived here with us at AABR. She is very underweight and we will be giving her the time and space to learn that everything is okay. Checkers has an orthopedic consult scheduled for next week and is facing possible surgery. Please consider donating towards her care.
