My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Dani, aka Polly, originally came to us from one of our rescue friends in June 2020. She was found running loose and no one ever claimed her. She looks like a mix of Australian and English shepherd, both of which are very intelligent dogs. Dani does take some time to warm up to new people. Once she does, she is a sweet gal and is very affectionate. She loves to give hugs. She is likely now 4 to 5 years old. She has been vet checked and spayed. Her fee is $125.

Dani was adopted for many months and returned recently after her person suffered a debilitating injury and could no longer keep her. She bonds very closely with her person and would make a fantastic companion.

Dani would do best in an experienced, ADULT only home. Teens are fine. A person who is very familiar with herding breeds and their personalities would be ideal. She needs someone who is very willing and able to continue with her training. She loves to learn and learns quickly. She does NOT like to be left alone for long hours and does require a lot of physical exercise and mental stimulation.

Dani can be hit or miss with other dogs. She has done okay with some male dogs. Cats are a no. A securely fenced yard would be ideal for her. She is not a dog for apartment living.
