Happy is a very sweet, affectionate, and active girl. She would make a wonderful hiking partner or a companion on long walks or runs. Her breed mix makes her pretty smart, so she will need a secure yard and someone able to handle a stronger dog. Happy is selective toward which dogs she likes, so a meet and greet with your dog is a must. She loves to play, so be sure you have the time to throw a ball daily, energy for long walks or runs and make time for belly rubs. Happy would not do well in an apartment type situation where she doesn’t have a yard as an option, 6 ft. fencing and up required.

Cowgirl was surrendered to the shelter as her owner could no longer care for her in their smaller apartment. Cowgirl is currently in a foster home learning some manners and is doing amazing. The foster reports she is excellent with her current dogs in the home, is a quick learner, already house broken, very happy and an attentive pup! Cowgirl already knows some tricks and cannot wait to learn some more! She will need an active owner who enjoys hiking / jogging / running as she is high energy and needs both physical and mental stimulation to be happy. Older kids (8 years and older) prefered as we are not sure how well she would do with younger kids. Cowgirl will need a yard to run and play in along with daily exercise.
