UPDATED DESCRIPTION:
Arya (REPOSTED) is a 15 month old Australian Cattle Dog/Border Collie mix, with a moderate to high energy level, and weighs 43 lbs.  Arya is a great youngster who has many wonderful characteristics and charm. Arya does well in doggie daycare and kennel-free boarding with other dogs. She loves to be with her people and is very gentle with children. She is potty trained, stays off furniture, rides nicely in cars, uses a doggie door, is well behaved when dining outdoors, and loves watching TV, especially Sesame Street and Bolt.

She has the potential to be a great companion for those who are willing to invest the time and resources to raise her properly. She requires someone who can provide love, structure and positive reinforcement training. She is doing well in her basic obedience and Nose Works. She would make a great agility dog. She is in foster care with 2 elderly Belgium Shepherds. She has too much puppy energy for one of them, who is a special needs dog. We love Arya dearly as she is a sweet, loving, and gentle natured pup. We want to give her the chance to find a home that can shower her with love and the activities that she needs to be happy and balanced.

She is reactive to cats when walking on leash. She is good with and plays appropriately with other dogs, but she is not comfortable at dog parks. She has been bitten by rowdy dogs in dog parks. Off leash dog friendly trails like Fort Funston and Regional Park trails have been better options. Her recall is still a work in progress which needs to be worked on by her new parent(s).

Arya is a joy to be with, but she is NOT a turn-key dog. She has textbook Australian Cattle Dog characteristics of being super smart, very athletic, and sometimes has a mind of her own. She wants to be your companion and partner, and needs to have her brain occupied throughout much of the day. For this reason, she would do best with people who work from home or can otherwise have her with them much of the day.  Arya is looking for a forever home that will provide structure, training, dedication and love for a much deserving soul who will be totally devoted to her people. Arya’s ideal home would be with people who have an active lifestyle and like to explore nature and the outdoors.

Arya is spayed, microchipped, on Simparica and Heartgard. She is up to date on all vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $300 (Will be donated to HITTGV).  IMPORTANT NOTE:  Adoption range - Alameda, Marin, Santa Clara, Contra Costa, Santa Cruz, and Sonoma County only.
