This beautiful two toned beauty is named Rita. She is an Australian Cattle Dog mix and is 3 years old. Weighing only 36 pounds and already full grown she would be a great companion for any one that rents an apartment in the big apple. She does have lots of energy so it would be best if she went to a home with someone as energetic as she is and able to give her the exercise that she needs daily. Rita does not like to share her food or toys so an experienced companion that will allow her the space she needs when she is eating or playing with her toys would be best. Rita should be supervised around kids of all ages and should be introduced slowly to other dogs. In Bideawee, she did not care much for the cats around her but if you have a kitty at home a slow introduction to the kitty would be best. Rita is not housebroken but is in training and hopefully will be when she is in her new home. Overall she is a lovely girl and she is extremely loving and loves attention as well as giving it back to you. If you think you’re the one for her please come in and meet her today!
