Uli is a beautiful 1 year-old Aussie/Flat-coated Retriever mix spayed female who is looking to make a fresh start with a new family. Given her tri-colored markings, there might be a little Bernese Mountain Dog in her family tree too. Hard to believe that this gorgeous young dog was an unclaimed stray at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter but that was indeed her plight. From the shelter, Uli made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could take her time finding the perfect new home. Uli has been friendly with everyone she’s met since coming to us, both humans and other canines. For a youngster, she walks quite nicely on a leash and seems to respond to the “sit” and “down” commands when offered a yummy treat. Uli has had excellent crate manners in her foster home and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. She seems to be a very smart girl who picks up new routines quickly. Uli would excel in an obedience class with her new family to become the best canine good citizen possible. She did meet the resident kitty at the vet clinic and seemed VERY interested in chasing her so a cat-free environment will be best for Uli. We’re sure her inner puppy is likely to break through once she’s comfortable in her new home so an active person or family who can provide her with lots of daily exercise and mental stimulation is exactly what she’s looking for. Uli weighs about 44 pounds and her adoption fee is $375. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
