Mindy is a wonderful dog. She and her mate AJ were rescued from Animal Control and came to our shelter on April 1, 2020.
Mindy is an Australian Cattle dog mix. She's about five years old and of medium size. Mindy celebrates her herding roots and has good energy. She loves sitting on your feet and makes a game of getting you to go where she wants to go. She definitely likes to work and keep busy, but her energy is not overwhelming. Given she's five years old, she is more mature and seems pretty happy-go-lucky. She is very smart and knows some commands. She is leash shy, but does okay once the lead is slipped on. She loves ear scratches and she'll vocally tell you how much she appreciates the attention and how good the scratches feel. She has a beautiful red and white coat and her eyes reflect her intelligence. Like, AJ, we haven't tested her with other dogs or cats, but will do so for potential adopters.
She and AJ are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. Mindy relies on AJ for comfort and security and AJ loves to be where Mindy is. Adopting this pair may be easier than having an only dog. They complement each other and their interactions are seamless. They love being with people and welcome attention, but they are also content to relax and explore the yard together. They are a delightful pair, who will be no more work than if adopting just one dog.
We do not know Mindy's and AJ's backstory, but they are polite and may even be house-trained given how mature they are and how well they act. Not sure how they found themselves at Animal Control, but we'll do everything we can to find them a perfect home and give them a second chance at a happy and secure life. Mindy is a little gem and AJ is a wonderful companion.
Mindy is spayed, fully-vetted and micro-chipped.
