I adopted Chai (fka Zuma) in December 2018 when she was 10 weeks old. I fell in love with her at first sight and was so happy when I got to bring her home. She is a perfect blend of sweet, sassy, and playful. I’m not sure she’s met a person, dog, or other creature she hasn’t wanted to befriend, including neighborhood cats! She’s brought out a new playful side in our older dog, Cosmo, and makes us laugh even when times are tough. She is truly a special dog and I feel so grateful to ARF for giving animals so much love and support.
