    Story

    Celine’s big brown eyes will melt your heart!

    Celine is a sweet girl who has been through way too much in her very short life. Though she’s barely more than a pup herself she’s already had a litter. When she first came in it was clear she was in pain but the reason wasn’t obvious until x-rays were done. That’s when AARCS’ vets found she has been shot with a BB gun and there are pellets still embedded. On top of that she has scars from old bite wounds and then had to have a second surgery to remove infected pockets of quills from her face, jaw and neck.
    The great news is….that’s all behind her now!
    Celine is great in the house, quiet and calm. She loves to snuggle on the couch and also loves her walks. Her recall is great and she is very smart, learning her basic commands quickly.
    She is reactive with dogs when she initially meets (her reaction is likely out of fear and the hope is, the more comfortable, safe and confident she gets the less this should be an issue) but after slow, controlled introductions she does great. She is currently living with 2 older, dogs and a cat and there has not been one hint of issues. One of her most favourite things ever is stuffies, she may tear them up, or sometimes not, either way she almost always carries one around with her…..she’s totally adorable!
