The Barking Bachelorette
Born on the rolling hills of Missouri, Cheeky the Dog was moved to New York City as a very young pup, and was later adopted by her forever family at just under a year old. From the time she joined her new human, Cheeky would accompany her two-legged counterpart to work at a downtown showroom, where she gained her first fashion experience.
Having always been an outgoing, ambitious, and super friendly pup, Cheeky's friends and family weren't surprised when she launched her professional modeling career in 2014 as the face of Dog & Co. With her spirited personality and outgoing nature, Cheeky was the perfect choice for Shop Manager of Dog & Co.'s first brick-and-mortar location when it opened two years later.
With her career at an all-time high, and an amazing group of family + friends to cheer her on, Cheeky still couldn't help feeling that something important was still missing...
As an independent woman and proud four-legged feminist, Cheeky realized that she didn't actually need a partner to complete her life - but truly began to believe that finding her someone special would only help to enrich it - so set out to start her magical journey as the first-ever Barking Bachelorette.
A frequent foster sister, Cheeky loves traveling, meeting new people, rolling in the grass, barking at waves, bunnies, and cheese. She believes in the process behind The Barking Bachelorette, and is excited to begin her search for true love!
