Sweet Chili (in foster care)

Silky Terrier, Mix

An adotable dog in Blackwood, NJ

  • Senior
  • Small
  • Male

Just what is there to say about Sweet Chili? This 9 year old Silky/Yorkie type mix was found wandering the streets and brought to the shelter by a good Samaritan. Incredibly matted, blind (eye specialist said Phthisis, permanent painless blindness), all he wants to do is cuddle and be with you. Sweet Chili WAS micro-chipped and pre-neutered, but when traced back his previous owners said they sold him years ago - and now there are conflicting reports of him being 'surrendered'. All that matters is he wasn't wanted - but we're going to show him that he IS wanted, forever!! Sweet Chili has had a shave and bath to help him in his recovery as well as the outpouring of love from every staff and volunteer here, until someone steps up and makes him their own.

Now in a foster home, Chili's personality has REALLY come through! He is housebroken (as long as you recognize his signals) & gets along with other dogs, cats & people. Once he feels comfortable in his surroundings, you'd have a hard time guessing he is totally blind. He is protective (barks a warning but is not a 'yappy' dog), is a good eater, loves to be touched - he is very affectionate. Chili does not like to be in a crate (he turns into yappy dog) preferring to be with you at all times. He is the best bed-time snuggler and he 'holds it' all night long. Chili also walks well on leash if he is comfortable with where you are leading him, usually only stopping when the ground under his feet changes (from grass to blacktop, etc). His hair is growing back in beautifully - all silky soft and starting to 'flow'. Chili loves his treats and will sit on command and take them ever so nicely. Routine is what is needed in his life for him to thrive. If you are interested in meeting Chili, please email his foster momma Stacy ([email protected]) and she will answer any and all questions you might have.

The adoption fee for canines includes spay/neuter, age-appropriate vaccinations, heartworm test, initial deworming treatment, microchip and pet medical insurance. Vaccinations and deworming are the first in a series which should be followed up by the adopter’s veterinarian.
