Meet Abilene (20210411-01)

I am a smart cookie and I can learn fast. Unfortunately nobody has taken the time to challenge my intellect so my manners are not the greatest. I can be a bit of a wild child and I would benefit from an experienced dog owner and somebody who is familiar with a working/herding breed. Although they think I have Pointer in me the trainers are sure there is a Heeler in me as well so I need a job to do and I like to stay busy.

I have lots of energy and and would fit well into a home with an active owner/s who wants a buddy to hit the trails with whether it be biking, hiking or running. Boy I love to run! I would definitely benefit from training and would love to find someone that will put my brain to use in training classes to give me the mental stimulation I need.

I tend to be a bit dominating and rough with other dogs so I would be best as the only dog in the home.

I am very curious and some may even say mischievous. I need to be supervised and can't be left to roam around inside the house or I may get I to trouble. My favourite place to be is outside running around so if you are the outdoorsy type then we will be best friends.

I need space so a big yard or a rural setting would be fantastic. I can climb a fence so the higher the fence the better and I need to be supervised when outside. They say curiosity got the cat but it's really curiosity got the dog!

If you are looking for an adventure and a partner in crime look no further!
