River Litter

Muddy is very appropriately named. Her gorgeous red-brown coloration is unusual in our kennels and earns her a lot of attention. She also loves to dig in the gravel and dirt, as well as in pockets looking for treats. Muddy is a smart, reliable lead dog who can turn on a dime and we are looking to her to train new leaders.
