Meet Ari – 5 YO F Australian Kelpie Mix Dog Rehomed in Sacramento California
Super smart and Oh, so pretty, Ari is one of those dogs that brings out the dog lover in everyone she meets. A 5 year old female Australian Kelpie mix, Ari is in excellent health, fixed, fully vaccinated and house broken. She is very well behaved, and gets along with people of all sizes and ages, as well as other dogs and cats.
She is as close to perfect a dog as you will find – an exceptional companion and best friend.
Ari’s owner loves her so very much, and wants the very best for her. He has come to realize that after moving to a small house with a very small yard, and having increased work pressures, he is simply not able to give Ari the time, attention or environment she needs and very much deserves.
He is dearly hoping to find Ari a new home where she will be cherished and kept safe, happy and healthy. This is a dog that sticks like glue to her favorite humans. (You might even say she “herds” people). She would be an ideal companion for an active retired dog lover, or for a work-from-home couple, or home-school family. She thrives on the canine-human bond, and loves to spend time with her people. She is OK on her own, but would really love an owner who can make her their focus, rather than an afterthought.

Reason For Rehoming
There are several reasons, and while none of which are enough necessitate re-homing her on their own, but when combined it becomes clear that we can’t provide the best home for her.
When I lived on my own in an apartment that had a huge , dog-friendly back yard, she did well. Two years ago I moved in with my girlfriend, and that environment changed. We have a house with a yard, but it’s a small house and most of the yard is off limits to the dog because of plants and such.
Inside the house her crate and dog bed take up a lot of floor space, and it creates an environment in which she’s always under foot.
Our work schedules are also an issue. My girlfriend is a flight attendant, and is away from home multiple days a week. MY job keeps me from home for around 10 hours a day, which is just too long for Ari too be kept locked up. I CAN bring her with me to work for short periods of time, but it’s not ideal.
Finally I think that….we’re just not capable of giving her the attention and home she needs. It’s unfair to her to live in this environment. She is a WONDERFUL animal, and I have put this off for too long.
