Chili has shown to be the best of both worlds. She is incredibly smart, loyal, playful, athletic, and adventurous. She is also so sweet, full of kisses, and a cuddle bug with a dash of pizazz!!! I'm a spicy hot mama looking for my forever family! My name is Chili. I'm a 30-ish pound, 2 year old Red Heeler gal. I was caught by Lebanon Animal Control in June. I was VERY pregnant and scheduled to be euthanized. Luckily for me, with only a couple of hours to spare before my time was up, the awesome folks at Rescue One saved me, and I was taken to a loving foster home in the nick of time. A few hours later, I gave birth to SEVEN healthy puppies. Now that my motherhood duties are behind me, I'm spayed and ready to be someone's beloved pet for the rest of my life. I am house trained and crate trained. I still pull quite a bit on a leash, so a harness might be a good idea for me. I get along great with most dogs and dog-savvy cats, although I need slow introductions since I can be dominant. I haven't met any kids yet, but I can be kid tested if needed. I am happiest when I am with my people and/or when I have a job to do (like herd cattle or learn new tricks). As a true herding dog, I enjoy herding the animals and people in my life. I would love to live on a farm and have another dog to hang out with, though I would be okay as an only dog if I get plenty of play time and attention from my people. I have a fondness for chewing, so providing me with bones and toys is essential to keep me engaged and occupied (I haven't chewed on anything I wasn't supposed to though). No apartment life for this girl. I am high energy, smart, playful, cuddly, and I aim to please. I know that with unconditional love, supervision and continued training, I am going to make a wonderful companion!
