Do you have kids who need to be herded around your house? Then come meet Raindrop. Now in foster care with her puppies, she's having a great time herding them - and her foster mom's three grandkids and two doggie housemates. And she loves being petted and cuddled. Scratch her head and she'll be in doggie bliss.

This loving momma is having fun playing with her puppies, and even appears to be training them to be disciplined and keep their room clean. When away from her puppies, she loves to become a couch potato and hopes to be a lapdog (although she is too big). A smart lady, she's happy to follow her foster around, watching everything she does.

She's very house-trained and uses a doggie door to go outside. She enjoys being in a crate, and does well free roaming with her dog buddies when her human is away. This cheerful girl only seems fearful of one thing - a leash. She runs and huddles on the floor when she sees one, and could use some training that a leash is okay.

Until she can be taught that leashes really are fun things that take her on enjoyable walks, she'll need a home with a fenced yard for pottying. She hopes to move in with a parent to love and who can continue helping her learn to like leashes. She'll also make a great companion for older kids. And she likes other dogs, but will be happy to be the only one. Come meet her, she'll herd you back home.
