Tabi is a beautiful little cattle dog from South Dakota.  She recently raised a litter of seven amazing puppies.  She is a delightful little scamp who knows: Sit, Come, Leave it, Wait, Go Potty, Go Outside, Go for a Ride. She loves women and kids, but it takes her awhile to warm up to most men, especially young men.
  Like most cattle dogs, she is extremely bright and requires a great deal of intellectual stimulation and physical exercise. When she can’t be exploring outside, she likes to race around the house tossing and chasing her puzzle toys.
  Tabi says:
 I am very sweet and affectionate. I enjoy sitting in the recliner with my foster mom and getting belly rubs and massages. I love going for rides in the car and motorhome, but I do bark at other dogs that I see out the window and also at dogs we encounter on leashed walks.
  I am a country girl and I am very protective of my home. I think I am a great watchdog! You can count on me to alert you if a stranger tries to enter your house (or a raccoon gets in the bird feeder or a dog barks on TV. . .) I will bark but I will not bite. Sometimes I will push strange visitors with my front paws, but I am learning that is not polite.
  I enjoy sparring with my foster’s dog-savvy cat who puts up with my attempts to herd her, but most cats would not likely be so patient with me.  I miss playing with my puppies and would really love to have another companion dog.
  My foster parents love me, but they think I would be happiest long-term with a younger, more active family. A fenced yard or lots of room in the country would  enrich my life considerably.

An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.  Please check out our website, www.ruffstartrescue.org for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!
