Mello came to her foster home with a reputation for chewing her way out of crates. Her foster mom decided not to crate her– problem solved! Mello knew basic commands, and was eager to learn more. She behaved so well that after her third day she was set free to roam the ranch off-tether, exploring the horse barn and gardens with her canine sibling. Mello is no dummy—she could see that her new people were sensitive and loving, and this home hard to beat. Is it any wonder she made up her mind very quickly that this would be her forever home? Smart dog, lucky family.
