Please meet sweet Rita. If you would like an enthusiastic, patient, respectful ACD, Rita would fill the bill. She is a lovely girl with a long tail and weighs in at 39#’s. She is friendly, waits for an invite to cuddle, and is independent all in one. Rita travels well in a vehicle and is friendly with new folks she meets. She is respectful of new dogs and takes her time to evaluate them – she wants respect as well. She can believe she is ‘in charge’ but is easily redirected without a fuss. Rita girl has fabulous house manners, sits perfectly for a treat, no crate required and is always happy to greet you. Rita has 100% positive recall – call her name & she comes running! Just recently Rita demonstrated her natural herding instincts in an arena with 3 sheep. She really does have ‘the moves’. Rita is truly a great all around ACD.

Rita is housebroken and fully vetted. She is currently located in Mesa, AZ

The first step to meeting any of our dogs is to submit an application. It in no way obligates you to adopt, it is simply part of our process. If the dog you are interested in is adopted before you can meet them or if we do not currently have a dog you are interested in we still encourage you to go through the approval process. Then you will be pre-approved and ready to adopt when a dog does come along that you are interested in.
