found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Thelma and Louise can be adopted together, but they do not need to be adopted together - each would likely benefit from having their own devoted person to bond with, and they do just fine out on field trips without the other. When they are together, they can be a little bit bratty with other dogs (if one of them has a squabble, the other one butts in right away). We hope to test them with cats soon, but our initial observations indicate that they have high prey and herding drives, so it is unlikely they will do very well with cats (at least, not with cats that run). Each weighs about 35 pounds. Thelma is more confident and rides very well in the car; Louise is more sensitive and can be a bit nervous about car rides. Both girls love cuddles and brushing and treats! Thelma has a tendency to jump up on people, while Louise is a bit more demure with her affections... if you have toddlers, Louise would be the better choice, but both will do fine with older kids.
So far, we haven't been able to get these girls to play much; Thelma seems more interested in chasing a ball than Louise, but doesn't really know what to do after that! They don't appear to have had any training other than housetraining (and yes, they are both housetrained)... but they are picking up the sit command pretty fast, and seem to be smart enough to be a fun training challenge for their owners. With their energy level, small-medium size, and herding breed background, there is no telling how far they can go with training - Agility? Frisbee? Dancing? Who knows! They both need a good dose of exercise each day to keep their bodies happy, and need human interaction and some sort of job to keep their hearts and minds happy.
Thelma comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period.
Spay/neuter, worming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $85; more gratefully accepted!)
Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your payment to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
