Dena square

I am a perky 7-year-old princess who loves to chase squirrels, watch birds and fetch the tennis ball.  You would never know my vision is slightly limited.  I see everything and don’t miss a beat!  I am alert, but slightly timid. I know sit, stay, wait and I will even give you my paw.  Counter surfing is not in my bag of tricks!  And, I am not thunder phobic!  At just under 50 lbs, I‘m the perfect size for any household and I love to follow my person around from room to room.  And another bonus, I walk very nicely on a leash!  I am a very well mannered little girl.

I love going for walks and running around in a fenced in yard.  I even like helping you with yard work.  I love to be by your side, ready and waiting for when you want to play or go for a walk.  I ride great in a car, do great with the groomer, and I let you wipe my paws after being outside.  I am pretty easy going.

I love always having one of my toys in my mouth and I really like chewing on my Nylabone.  I love to lean on you and will roll over for a belly rub any time.

Because I’m a bit skittish, an environment with children would not be ideal for me.  I think I would like a calm, settled house with my people.   And, as a Golden/Collie mix I take my heritage seriously and like to herd the cats in my foster home.  The cats prefer that I not do so!

I am irresistable so don’t delay!
