(Our adoption app is here: http://pawsitivetailsrescue.org/our-adoptable-pets/pawsitive-tails-rescue-dog-adoption-application-form/)
Shadow is a 25 lb female red heeler/kelpie mix (born 5/15/15) that is absolutely the best dog with small children I've ever seen. She bonds quickly with kids and loves to be with them. She's great with HER adults and is affectionate and playful.
She is a heeler and, typical of her breed, she is protective of her 'territory' and will nip the ankles of people she doesn't know or trust. She is not a fan of cats and will chase them, and is picky about what dogs she likes (again, a typical heeler).
She gets along well with several small dogs we have here - absolutely NO problems, but larger (25+ lbs), intact females she does have a problem with.
She needs responsible owners and a fenced yard for this girl is a must. She will make someone the sweetest, most loyal companion ever if given the chance.
Her adoption fee is 150 and includes age-appropriate shots, worming, microchip and spay. An approved application is required (which can be found here: http://pawsitivetailsrescue.org/our-adoptable-pets/pawsitive-tails-rescue-dog-adoption-application-form/), as is an adoption contract.
