Hi, my name is Rita and I'm about 1-1/2 years old.  I was rescued along with my 5 puppies by Bond County Humane Society from an Animal Control facility when our time expired and we were at risk of being euthanized.   I am currently living in a foster home with 2 other dogs and 2 cats.  I get along with all the animals.  My foster mom says my best qualities are I'm affectionate, obedient and eager to please.  I am learning to share attention with the other dogs in the household.  I have become great friends with the Lab/Shepherd mix in the family.  His name is Vic and we love to romp and play.  I like to lay next to him wherever he is.  I know "Sit", "Off" and "Wait" and I walk nice on leash.    I am a busy girl but I like to take breaks and curl up next to people or Vic.  I am not destructive, but I like to have a variety of toys to chew on.  I am crate trained and working on house training. I definitely have a potty routine.  I am available for immediate adoption.  I am spayed, UTD on vaccinations, heartworm tested, treated for internal and external parasites and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $150.00.  If you are interested in making me a member of your family please complete an Adoption Profile in person or on-line at  Email the completed profile to the address provided.   A copy of our policy regarding warranties, refunds and returns is available upon request.
