Chayil is a champion Scottish terrier, ready to head out and explore the great outdoors and at the same time, stand at attention to love her dearest companions whenever possible. She's a resourceful little girl and would love to be taken to nearby parks to play games such as fetch or to romp around with other canine friends. But at the end of the day, in your lap or under your chair is where you'll find Chayil, for it's her people that really fascinate. And she would most likely do very well in a domicile with dog-savvy cats if given a proper introduction.

    Meet Chili, a lovely cat who has been waiting for her new home since the beginning of January. She's a mellow and calm 9-year-old with impeccable manners. Happy to doze the day away in a warm bed, Chili is equally content sitting on a lap and purring as you read. This beautiful cat has peacefully coexisted with other cats before and would do well in most households, with a proper introduction.

    Here's what her foster says about her: "Chili is very friendly and mellow. She loves sleeping with children and loves sitting on laps. She likes getting brushed (and) her soft coat does not shed much."
