Chasing balls!!!! Loves playing tug of war!! Laying on my lap with her head on my arm

Not being able to chase balls and not being with me.

Favorite Toy:
All balls, All tug toys, squeeky toys, fluffy toys to kill, her non-stuffed, fluffy lion.

Favorite Food:
EVO, and dehydrated sweet potatoes. Anything on the kitchen counter.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere with me or my husband.

Best Tricks:
Catching balls, sneaking around to get her sister's food, sit, down, swing, come, stalking squirrels, out, go wild.

Arrival Story:
We adopted her via a rescue from the military. She was almost 2 years old when she was injured during training (non aggressive) so she was pulled from the program and put up for adoption. She had partially torn both ACL's (knee ligament). We went to a veterinary surgical specialist and she had TPLO surgery on one knee and we tried stem cell therapy to hopefully heal the other less affected one. After restricted activity for 6 months she is now normal and super active! She is a wonderful dog and is loving being a family pet. She is very friendly, yet protective of our home and us. She has a little sister, Emma, who is a 13 year old fiesty Parson Russell Terrier. She has 2 kittie sisters too who had to make her know the kitty rules in the house. Basically the rule says that the cats are the boss over everyone. Fortunately she has learned well after a few grumbles and a swipe from Her Majesty,the Queen, Aster.

This photo is very rare--she's actually laying down and sleepy! She weighs 63 lbs and is a solid rock again now that her knees are all better.
