Australian Kelpie / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat) : : Female : : Young : : Medium
Ryder, or her adoption name “Jolly Juice”, is a very smart and outgoing dog. She loves her bones, toys, and her daily run or walk. She is leash trained and crate trained (plastic). She also knows the commands to “sit, lie down, stay, shake, high five, fetch, and her pose position.” She is a great protection dog which comes in handy. She will growl or bark when she hears noises. She loves attention from her person and can’t get enough of it. Her diet has to be monitored. She will eat and drink anything that is on the floor. She does wonderful on car trips by sitting like a kid and look out the window and when it comes to grooming, meaning nail trimming, bathing, hair brushing, and brushing her teeth. She loves her baths and she will let you know by jumping in the bathtub. She does well left by herself, especially in her kennel. Also, she is not very vocal unless she needs to be. She loves to cuddle with her person if you let her. She doesn’t play well with cats or smaller dogs, she ends up being too rough because of her excitement. She would get along with dogs around her size and children older than 10.
Ryder needs a family that will continue to love her and keep her active. She is a great companion with any activity, even watching t.v. She does well with her easy walk harness on walks, but she will pull if she doesn’t have it. She is a very smart dog, so that gives a lot of potential for her to learn and grow. At first, she is shy, but she will quickly get attached and be herself.
