Arrival Story:
Kit was a foster that I worked with and trained for Tennessee Valley Cattle Dog Rescue in Chattanooga. After Kit learned the basics, I brought her back to the rescue so I could work with another dog. Sadly, the other dogs at the rescue got riled up about the neighbor dogs and Kit got in the middle of it. Kit lost her hind leg due to injuries from the fight. She is still a great dog with a wonderful personality and will not let her missing limb slow her down!

Kit is a great pup in need of a good home. She is very loving and loves to learn. She immediatly settles down no matter how excited she is if I get out her clicker and start training her. She is very smart and a fast learner with treats and positive reinforcement. She has learned the basics as far as sit, down, and stay, but is also learning proper house manners. She is learning that she must be laying down when people eat and not to beg. She is learning that she must sit before going through a door and being let out of her crate. She plays well with others, but doesn't do so great around small kids because, as a true heeler, she is a bit mouthy when she is excited. We are working with this as well and she is coming along nicely. She just needs a family to love her and lavish her with attention.

Hey, this is "Trip's" owner (Kit, the three-legged rugrat). Anyway, just wanted to say thanks because I have loved every minute with her... I'm working at a summer camp on a lake and she loves to chase the waves and pull rocks from the water. There are few dogs that I have seen that will completely submerge their heads and blow bubbles out their nose to get the rocks, and of course they aren't the small rocks, she attempts the big ones that are impossilbe. Every now and then she'll pull one up that I can't believe she got a hold of. The three legs haven't slowed her down a bit, plus the kids love her for it. Thanks again!


Not a new home after all

Well, I thought I was getting adopted. I guess not, though. The new family had a very hard time finding a way to meet up with my foster parents. They have been trying to work it out for a few months. Oh, well, I guess I will find a new forever home. It should not be hard, since I am a really good dog. I can sit, down, stay, and walk nice on a leash. When my foster mom is on the computer, I lay patiently by her side an look up at her. I am just waiting to do something good to get a reward. Rewards are great!!!

I am very excited! My foster mom says that someone wants to adopt me! My very own forever home! She said that we are just waiting to do a home visit to make sure that this is the best place for me. I can't wait! I heard that they have horses and I will get to go on trail rides with them. Hurray!!!!
