Best Tricks:
'dance',rollover, paw, 'sit pretty', and talking in her sleep, 'herding' birds in the yard, and 'killing' big rubber balls

Arrival Story:
It's kinda funny, see, we'd just lost a dog we found, it got loose and ran so i'd been going to metro, hoping to find him, and just gave up after several months, there was no way he'd be alive, we think someone took him in though. I went with my family to see the new 'Hotel for Dogs' movie, and afterwards, my mom asked me where the local shelter was, i told her. When we got there she asked to look at adoptables, so they showed us where and we just started looking around. I was praying we could find one that would fit everyone, but as I kept looking I started to doubt. I had been looking online as well, on PetFinder, so as I passed a kennel, i saw this red-furred dog, which i had bookmarked as a possibility, so I pointed her out, mom looked her over, we asked if we could take her out to see, so we went with her to a side room. It was almost instant concetion, she was so sweet, and was such a tolerant dog, my little brother was touching her everywhere and she just licked him and wagged her tale, already knew some basic tricks. We brought her home that day, and within the first week we knew without a doubt she was the perfect dog for our family.
