Let's party! My name is Trip, and I am ready for a lifetime of adventure with you! I am a playful, fun-loving fella who gets along great with other dogs of all sizes, cats, and would love an active family who will help me work out my energy in fun ways. As an Australian Cattle Dog mix, I have some tendencies to herd so I would do best in a home without young children. I would also love a fenced yard at my forever home where I can romp and run free in a safe space. I'm very smart and eager to learn even more: I'm crate trained and am working hard on perfecting potty training. My forever family should be committed to signing us up for some training classes so we can learn fun tricks and commands together. It will be the first of our many adventures, and I cannot wait to get started! So hurry up and fill out that adoption application - we have happy times ahead!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
