Sabrina says of Indi: “She is a 6-year-old Basenji/Border Collie mix. I got her when she was just 7 weeks old; I was 12 years old at the time. Indi is my second dog, and she learned agility right along with me. I think the hardest obstacle for Indi to learn was the weave poles. She never wanted to slow down enough to get through them. She has always been a joy to run, even when she shows her extra sass! She will often try to stop in the middle of a course to ‘yell’ at me for even the slightest mistake.
“Besides agility, Indi and I participate in obedience, rally, and therapy dog. I think her favorite sport is actually rally, but she is the type of dog who will do anything I ask to the best of her ability. When I’m not working with my dogs or doing school work, I can probably be found singing, playing an instrument, or reading a book.”
