Breed: Australian Kelpie x German Shepherd

Weight: 44 lbs

Age: 3 years

Personality: First words to describe Indigo - intelligent, obedient, and loyal! Indigo listens impressively well, and you can see it in her eyes how much she adores and wants to please her human. When asked to do something (like lay in her bed), she will stay there until she is released with an "okay" or "come." Indigo is well-behaved, quiet, and is non-destructive in the house. 

Indigo much prefers snuggling on the couch to most activities! Once she sees a human on the couch, up she goes to snuggle. Indigo also enjoys playing fetch and she is a pleasure to walk with. Indigo has such a gentle spirit that we would like to see her go to a home where she will never again have to worry about being let go.
