Hi! My name is Whoopie! I am part polar bear and part Australian cattle dog. Just look at this face! Irresistible! I'm a spayed female herding dog. Herding and protection are my instinctual duties and I take it seriously. So if a group of kids were in my yard with me, I would herd them around where I need them to be. So because I am so very, very smart, I need activities and jobs to do. I need someone who will spend time with me, teach me all the great things that every dog should know and provide me with routine and leadership. I thrive in that environment. If someone doesn't take the lead, I will try to step up and run the show. When I am in a routine and someone is my confident leader, I am a happy girl. I like to take walks and car rides. I enjoy being with people and getting attention. I am mellow and calm, very quiet and independent. Please give me a chance to be your newest family member. You'll be so glad you did! Adoption fee: $75 and includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, microchip, spay/neuter and 60 days of free pet insurance.

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.Adoption Process:
Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
