  • Comments
We got Cecily from the shelter in Caldwell, ID. She was found stray. As mentioned, she has had some training, but her general manners aren't great. She was very underweight when we got her and had the ususal starved dog fixation on food, so she counter surfs, and will really pester you if you have food. We are working on this. The good news is she is eager to please and wants very much to be a good girl and do the right thing. She is a very pretty girl, tall and leggy, with beautiful brown eyes and the softest fur. She loves to cuddle in bed with you at night. She plays well with all the dogs here and hasn't shown the least bit of aggression. She is an all around good dog who will reward some TLC with tons of kisses and devotion.

Update 8/12 - Cecily was returned to us after almost 4 years with her adoptive family. She developed some issues after they had a baby. She has developed some insecurities and become somewhat reactive. She is still the sweet loving girl she always was, but she has lost her sense of security and self assurance. She has shown some sings she might snap out of fear, but no sign she would actually try to connect or hurt anyone. However, these new behaviors and issues make her unadoptable, so we have her as a sanctuary dog. With that magic person she might someday find a home, but odds are she'll live out her life here with us. And that's okay, we love her to bits.

We will post additional photos of Cecily as time goes by, so check back often.

"Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent.
To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace."
