DOB - OCT 2014 | Female | Kelpie X Staffy

Kel is a sweet girl that is super smart and eager to learn. She is looking for an active family that will take her out on a daily run to help burn of some of that energy!

It is also very important along with mental enrichment and exercise that I get lots of human companionship so must be inside with my new family when they are home.
