this sweet girl is about 7 years old. She is very scared so we are just learning about her. here is what the foster home has written about her:

Rio would prefer a quieter home as too much excitement and noise scares her, she would really like to be an only dog as she loves her people much more than being around other dogs. She is a complete cuddle bug and after a few days for her to trust you, she will follow you from room to room to be with you. She is ok with a confident cat, but will chase and growl if the cat runs. She would also love to sleep in bed with her human at night, and will burrow under a blanket to the foot of the bed. Being a chi she is an excellent door bell and she is about 90% housetrained and will use pee pads inside. She does have separation anxiety for the first couple of weeks, but settles down after she is convinced you’re coming back. Rio loves car rides and is quiet in a crate but really enjoys travelling secured with a seatbelt as she can see more.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
