An Australian cattle dog/ Finnish Spitz mix, she is rescued from a small town in California called Hisperia
How did you meet your canine companion?
I first met Miley at a parking lot Tim Horton’s where she was to be handed off to me from a rescue, for fostering. Specifically fostering to adopt. When I first saw her, she was much smaller then what the pictures looked like. She was fairly emiciated, and coat was coarse with Tuffs of hair.
What’s the story behind your dog’s name?
There isn’t any amazing story behind her name. She came to me with “Aurora” which is pretty, but didn’t suit her. I wrote down a list of names I liked and got her to sit infront of me while I called them out. To see which suited best.
