Ariel

Ariel is a 10-month old mix puppy we rescued from Glenn County along with her siblings Arnold and Autumn. This girl has super model good looks — she’s lean and lanky, and has an exotic thing going for her…we can’t quite figure out what breeds she is, she’s so unique!

By default she was labeled a pit mix at the shelter, but we think she’s part Greyhound with a long narrow body and a head to match.

  • Sweet and lovable
  • House trained
  • Loves to play in the yard with the other dog in the home
  • Would make a great running or hiking partner.
  • Loves to snuggle
  • Very gentle in her play so we think she could be good with kids
  • Responds to her name, sits, and will wait until you tell her it’s ok to start eating (as long as you don’t wait too long). Still pulls a bit on the leash, but not that bad.
  • Her foster calls her a “really easy dog” (her last thing to learn is counter surfing!)
  • Sleeps in her crate at night and sometimes in the afternoon for her nap
  • Food motivated
