Age: 12 weeks (July 2017)
Breed: Australian Shepherd
Matira is 12 weeks old, 14 pounds, and filled nose to tail with energy! This fearless Aussie pup is smart, determined, and full of smiles! Matira enjoys wrestling with her foster siblings, doing zoomies around the room, and even practicing puppy parkour when she leaps on and off the ottoman during play! Some days it seems like she would choose to play forever, unless of course you have cookies! Matira is REALLY motivated by cookies and treats! I mean, who isn’t? When Matira isn’t playing, she fancies belly rubs and cuddles.
Matira is a quick study – walking nicely on the leash, taking sit and down commands, as well as house and crate training. Matira is settling well into her nightly routine, but is an early riser and will certainly let you know it’s time to start your day. Matira is a vocal pup, often barking when she’s ready to play and during play, so a house is preferred where the neighbors don’t have to hear all of her opinions.
Matira is up to date on her scheduled puppy vaccines, has been regularly dewormed, and is microchipped. She is currently fostered in Woodbridge, VA, and her adoption fee is $350. As with all our young female dogs, we avoid same-sex pairings with adoptions, so an adopter with a resident male dog (or no dog) will be preferred for Matira.
