Meet Ripley! This medium sized 8 month old pup clocks in at around 35lbs and is a perfect petite sized companion! While a little shy at first, Ripley warms up immediately to anyone with a cookie/treat and will shower you with licks of affection in no time at all. She's completely crate trained and will lay quietly in her crate when left alone. She's also completely potty trained and will whine at the door if she needs to go out to do her business. While Ripley is a border collie mix, she has a lower drive and is not prone to behaviors like herding or nipping at ankles! Although Ripley has been around children of various ages throughout her puppyhood, she would much prefer a quieter adult only home without a lot of chaos. Ripley is amazing with dogs of all types and needs to go to a home with another well socialized dog. Ripley has been raised indoors and is polite inside the house and is not prone to chew on forbidden items as long as she is provided with plenty of toys to play with! In fact, in her foster home, she readily digs in her "toy bin" to select which toy she'd like to play with and is very aware of what is "hers". Ripley has taken beginning obedience classes and is very proficient in: Sit, Stay, Down, Come, and Leave-It. She also knows a few tricks including: Shake, sit pretty, spin, and roll-over. Because Ripley is a little shy, it would be imperative to continue building her confidence through group classes! Ripley enjoys going on hikes, jogging/running, playing in the pool, and would make a great companion for some lucky person!
