Rice is a bundle of energy and joy and is an overall happy-go-lucky girl! Incredibly affectionate and with striking eyes, it is hard not to fall for Rice quickly after meeting her. She loves hard (total lap dog if given he chance) and plays hard (she has yet to meet a toy she didn't like and want to disembowel). She also loves playing with other dogs, running around the yard, and just being near people.

She is doing well living with the other dogs, cats, and small children in her foster home. She and the resident dogs could happily play all day together. She is curious about the cats but has no prey drive. She is very gentle and does great with the toddler, though sometimes she doesn't realize how big she is.

Rice knows "sit" and has fetch 80% down. She is eager to please, so training should not be difficult. She has lots of puppy energy and a tank of a body, so plenty of exercise/stimulation and training is important. She is crated at night and when home alone, but is otherwise given free reign. Rice is all dog and anyone who calls her theirs will be rewarded with just a solidly wonderful dog.
