Pretty Miss Lena (aka “Lean-bean” or just “Bean”) is a wonderful BC/Aussie mix that is 10-12 months old. She is highly intelligent, already has excellent recall, and knows commands for sit, stay, wait, and is working on “sit pretty/balance”. Her foster mom thinks she is incredibly fun and easy to train. Due to her athleticism and intelligence, she would do very well in dog sports, running, or other activities. She very much enjoys pleasing her person in any way!

She is very affectionate and will always come running back to give you hugs and kisses. Due to her excitement, she sometimes jumps up, and is working on keeping “four on the floor”. She is both praise and food motivated, which makes her a dream to train.
Lena’s favourite things are human cuddles and canine wrestles. She absolutely adores her foster siblings and is incredibly dog-savvy, already winning over the hearts of all four of the other dogs she lives with. She will wrestle, tug, chase, and play whatever game her siblings are playing. She is a favourite with all canine visitors because of her sweet demeanor and eagerness to play.
Lena has not been tested with children and due to her herding/prey drive we do not recommend a home with cats.
Lena’s ideal home has:
* A canine sibling or family member with another dog for her to play with
* Active lifestyle with fun activities (running, agility, hikes, dock diving, frisbee etc)… to keep her entertained
* Affectionate humans who love doggie hugs and kisses
* No cats or livestock
She is UTD on all vaccines, spayed,  microchipped, house-trained and crate-trained. She lives in her foster home in Durham, NC.
