Hi my name is Leliani though my foster mom calls me Leia for short. So far, life has been pretty tough. I came from a shelter down south where no one was interested in adopting me. Now in MN, I am hoping to find the perfect family. It took a while to find a foster home I fit in since I have a very unique personality.

I am a typical cattle dog born to work and herd. Now I live in the city and I am not sure what my purpose is. I have a lot of energy! I really enjoy running around the backyard, playing with my doggie foster brother, and playing with toys. I play fetch and am learning to chase a disc. True to my breed, I love to be with my people. I follow close by my foster mom and even steal her socks to get her attention. Don’t worry I drop them when she tells me to. I am learning to be in my crate when my foster mom is at work. The first hour is tough to be away from her so I cry. After that I settle down and take a nap. The best days are when I go to daycare during the day and play all day. Did I mention I am a herding breed? That means I love to chase things! It doesn’t matter what it is - cats, dogs, cars, bikes, and kids. The rescue has signed me up for an obedience class to work on my impulse control. My foster mom says I am super smart and I would do well learning a dog sport or just learning some tricks to impress family and friends. Please look up the characteristics and history of my breed if you are interested.


From the foster mom: Leliani is a smart and active dog looking for a family that will continue to provide both physical and mental exercise. She is great with other dogs but should be with dogs of similar energy level and either her size or larger. She can chase and play too hard for small dogs. Similarly she should not live with cats or other small pets. Due to her herding nature, she should not live with kids. Leliani is signed up for an obedience class where she will be working on general manners and impulse control. She is so focused on playing and running around, she has not learned to signal that she needs to go out. She is house trained on a schedule.

Our Adoption Process...

After the meeting, a home visit is scheduled and, if everything goes well with the visit, the adoption is finalized. A home visit by one of our representatives is required prior to finalizing any adoption, and we must meet all members of the household where the pet will be living sometime during the adoption process. We reserve the right to refuse any applicant for any reason Adoption fee includes: vet exam(s), spay/neuter, de-worming, heartworm test (if 6 months of age or older), vaccinations, microchip, and FIV/FeLv testing (for cats only).
