Venus (ADOPTED) Here is Venus with her new person Jenny! She is now going to work at the horse stable with Jenny everyday and will learn how to handle horses and be a ranch dog. Good luck Venus and have a wonderful life!

Venus is approximately 10 months old and weighs 33 lbs. She is a mini cattle dog, but big on personality.  Venus loves attention and seeks out human companionship.  She is responsive, alert and very sociable.  She will come sliding into a sit at your feet when you call her!  Venus is a very happy, friendly, playful, and active.  She is very responsive to people, well mannered and intelligent.  She is very eager to please and knows 'sit' especially for treats.  She loves belly rubs and treats, and will gently take them from your fingers.  She plays well with other dogs, but as a cattle dog, can be a bit bossy and can sometimes try to control a situation.  Venus needs to have her energy and brain directed and have a purpose.  She will be a wonderful and loyal companion.  She would like nothing more than to have her own person to cuddle with and adore.
