Hi my name is Leliani though my foster mom calls me Leia for short. I am a typical cattle dog born to work and herd which means 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 and need a proper outlet for this instinct. 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. The best family for me would be an active family who enjoys a dog with a little more spunk and intelligence. They say the sky is the limit for me.
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. Leliani loves meeting new people and is social and friendly, but may be too much for kids under the age of 12. Leliani is a true Cattle Dog mix. If you are interested in adopting her, we encourage you to do your research on the breed.
