The Mod Dog of the Month


Sorry everyone, I am so behind on this, so don't think you didn't win if it's been months since you entered.

Name: Friday

Breed: Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog)

Age: 5 Years

Collar: Subway Window

More About Friday : "She is a rescue dog. I found her online through an agency that saves dogs from high-kill shelters in the South and brings them to New England to foster them while finding their forever homes. She had been abused and was found abandoned in Tennessee. Working dogs like Cattle Dogs frequently are found in shelters, as the original owners may not have known how much constant training/jobs these the dogs need. I am a single woman who works at home (I am an artist) and thought I would be the right candidate to become her new mom and offer her a safe place to live with lots of attention and lots of room to run on my property on Cape Cod. She came to me with plenty of issues, but with love and training, she has become the most important being I have ever been lucky enough to have in my life (I even built my house just for her, going as far as to set a dedication to her in the concrete just inside the front door.)." -Jennifer

Friday's Favorite Things: Her favorite toy is an elk antler chew toy. Her favorite treat is roasted squash skin (good for her too!)
