Alli, an Australian cattle dog mix, attentive and sitting down on the ground


This little lady joined us way back in 2005. Alli’s spunk and vivacity quickly won her a spot in head handler Heath’s heart. Since becoming a part of the pack, Alli has gone on numerous studies tracking a dozen different species. While her work has taken her all over the country, she is most specialized in species of the PNW. At 13 years old, Alli is settling in to retired life at the side of her best friend. She still loves to play ball, and will affectionately nip on the neck of anyone who sits down and pets her.
