Meet Cleo! Here is what her foster has to say about her: We’ve had Cleo for one week and at first she was very scared and timid. Now she is a very loving, happy, playful puppy. She loves snuggling! She has done great with my kids. She can be timid at first but after a few minutes she warms up. We have a 15 and a 4 year old and she responds well to both of them. We are teaching her to sit before she eats her breakfast and dinner. We are also teaching her to not jump up on people. She is very food motivated and smart so she should be easy to train. She definitely needs attention and affection and would do well in an active family or more slow paced. She does not like car rides yet…she tends to get sick. Cleo hasn't been around cats yet or used a crate.  We let her out every two hours and she does great! At night we use potty pads and she always goes on them. 

Cleo is from Arkansas.
