Adoptable Medium Up-to-date with routine shots

PLEASE PROVIDE A PHONE NUMBER WITH YOUR INQUIRY. Note: preference will be given to working/herding situations, ranches, farms, large acreages, horseback homes, and agility/trial homes.

Introducin’ “Riata.” Riata will have what it takes to get the job done. She is tenacious, bold, fearless, and possesses all the traits that a feller could want in a stock dog.

Her momma is quite handsome and seemed to be all border collie and Riata appears to be all stock dog as well. With her docked tail and as much as she heels she could be crossed with an Australian cattle dog. Who knows? One things for sure, Riata will need a real job to do or she’s gonna get herself into trouble out of boredom. She will NOT be a good city dog and preference will be give to a workin’ home or at least a ranch, farm, or large acreage in the country.

All stock dogs need lots of mental and physical stimulation to be happy and to stay out of trouble. A short walk around the block is not going to be sufficient. Herding breeds do best when they have a ”job” to do which occupies most of their day. This can be herding livestock, horseback riding, hiking in the mountains or on the beach, mountain biking, playing extended games of fetch, or agility games. As a breed they are incredibly smart and love to learn tricks and solve problems. Be sure that you research this breed carefully before committing to living with a herding dog.
