Yesterday we met up with Rio for his Assessment. He is a charming, two year old, twenty-five pound, Shetland Sheepdog. This "Sheltie-dude" did fabulous inside of The Fort's Medium Roll. From there, he explored the facility calmly yet alertly... When it was time to meet the pack, Rio did so skillfully. Within minutes, he turned his canine acquaintances in to rebel-rousing-playmates. It was a sight to see, Rio, enjoying himself so much, so quickly! Now obviously, we are wee bit biased when it comes to Shetland Sheepdogs around here lol, however, we also understand that they are "a lot of dog" and sometimes, due to their "work ethic", can have a plethora of issues. Lucky for us, Rio didn't exhibit any of the bad/stereotypical Sheltie behavior (skittishness, excessive, barking, etc...). He is quite a well mannered and fun-loving gent, who didn't vocalize once during his visit. We look forward to having Rio at Fort Fido again. Good on ya boy!
Take a look at this little clip of Rio hamming it up with Captain and Cooper:
