Hi pals! I am Madrone, tall and stately, but with a cute goofiness. I am a 3 year old, spayed female Queensland Heeler mix, weighing about 55 lbs. I was rescued from the Riverside Shelter, and I was lucky to have been rescued by TAP. I was pregnant and had puppies in TAP’s care. They are adopted and now it’s mama’s turn to be pampered! I am bathroom trained and working on my leash manners.

Fir-reals, I am a good girl and super smart! I am a working breed mix and thrive on enrichment activity and exercise. I will be a delight to work out with and tricks training. Gopher holes are a huge weakness of mine, and one day I am gonna get ’em! When tuckered out, I am a wonderful cuddler. You better be-leaf me that I am a lover gal and aim to please. I can startle with loud cars, dog and people in the dark, particularly men. I will need some decompression time to overcome and get desensitized to my triggers. But I am still a good gal nevertheless! I am selective with dogs and still trying to figure out where I stand on my liking! I think a slow introduction can help. I dont have experience with kids and I am a no-no with cats.

You will get lots of fun and a-corny jokes with me! My ideal home will be with a yard or on a ranch, with lots of activities, training and purpose. I will thrive with exercises like hiking, running, nose-work and with mental games. As long as I have attention and activity, I will be a happy bunny! If you think we will have awesome chemis-tree, let’s meet up! My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
