altADOPTED!  Sedona is a very gentle, sweet natured and friendly girl.  She is perhaps 2 to 3 years old and weighs 53 lbs. Sedona is an extremely smart, patient, and calm dog. Her main focus is on people. She has a very easy going and quietly contented temperament. This is not to say that Sedona is a boring dog, far from it. She is ready to go wherever and do whatever with her person/ people; and when she gets to know someone, she is playful, attentive and very responsive. She loves human attention, but is very polite and waits until you are ready to spend quality time with her. In true cattle dog fashion, Sedona is looking to bond with her own person/people, and will be an extremely devoted companion. 

She is also very well mannered and very tolerant about being handled. We lifted her onto the vet table for an exam and she was very compliant. She never attempted to get off the table, even when the vet left the room for 10 minutes, but instead made herself comfortable, laid down, and licked her handler’s nose.
Sedona walks very nicely on leash, and will frequently and "check in" with you, by looking up with a big smile to let you know she is enjoying her walk. She seems to be fine with cats, pretty much ignoring them. She is also very good with other dogs. She meets them calmly and is not concerned about them. In the few days we have had her, Sedona has shown that she knows some basic obedience commands, and appears to be house trained. She has a soft coat and enjoys being brushed. This writer believes that Sedona is the best dog and most perfect companion.
