Here’s Janus, aptly named after the two-faced Roman God, guardian of entrances, god of endings and new beginnings (look it up!). She was found on someone’s doorstep on the Rez, pregnant. She has been with her foster since June, and delivered her 5 pups in her fosters home in mid July.

Janus is true to her breed - red heeler - she loves to herd, and she will bark when she sees something she wants to chase. It’s something we have been working on. She is highly intelligent, and figures out how to overcome problems she’s presented. At first it was frustrating, but now we’re just amazed! We will share our insight to make sure you are successful 😉 She will do best in a house with a fence with a lock on the outside that she can’t pop open.

She loves walks and doesn’t pull on her harness. She loves to play with our dogs - two larger one smaller than her. She is a confident dog, and very intuitive. She is a pack animal. She would do well with another young dog to play with. She does like to rough house, so a confident dog that can tell her when enough is enough would be great. Our dogs have been doing this and she is a quick learner but can get excited - like any dog!

This girl is VERY sweet. She just wants to be part of the pack. Need a break? Give her a bone. She’ll be thrilled.

When excited/getting a lot of love from humans she gives love nips on the calves or elbows/back of arms. She has never broken skin, and is NOT biting. But because of this she would probably do better in a home with older kids.

She lives with a cat, likes to chase her and the barn cats.

Has never met children.

Lives with 2 adult humans and 3 other dogs (and 5 pups)
