Cheeky qualifies for San Antonio Pets Alive's Seniors for Seniors program ... her adoption fee is waived for an approved adopter at least 55 years of age! This girl is a GREAT companion dog! My name is Cheeky, although my foster family always says Cheeky Beeky in a really high pitched tone that makes my butt wiggle. My foster dad says that I am solid muscle and am definitely not graceful when I get excited. I'm an old gal, 12 years young, so of course I'm not graceful foster dad! I enjoy laying outside on my bed in the sun...If it's cold outside my foster mom tells me to come in so I sit there and stare and usually do the complete opposite, she usually has to pick my butt up and shoo me inside. What can I say? I LOVE the outdoors but don't get me wrong, I do not want to be outside all the time. My foster mom thinks I'm afraid of the dark. Every time the sun goes down I don't really want to stay outside much longer. I mean, I have 3 little girls who have super comfortable beds. My favorite Childs bed said sometimes I have to sleep in my own bed so she put a bed and blanket in her room and that's where I like to cuddle at night. My foster family does have other animals. A cat, a dog and some rats! We all get a long well, although I've realized I don't like all female dogs so it would be best to do a meet and greet before you decide I'm your forever dog. Mom took me to an adoption event, see, I was adopted in 2012 and returned in June of 2019. It's almost Christmas and I still don't have a home. Mom said I was very stressed at the adoption event and was not acting's my best, so here I am writing a bio trying to get my story out and tell you all about what kind of dog I am. My foster family says I'm the easiest. All I need is some sun, a comfy bed and some good pets. Oh and kids are a plus because I know I can get away with sneaking on their bed and sleeping with them at night. I know puppies are cute, but I'm house trained, have no bad habits, bark at strangers and still have a lot of love to give. Sincerely, Cheeky If you are interested in adopting me, please email with my name and ID#. By adopting me, you not only give me a new leash on life; you also save the life of an additional pet who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in a San Antonio Pets Alive adoption center.
