From the Foster:

Say hello to Bango! This sweet girl was picked up from a reservation in North Dakota and made her way to the Twin Cities. She is a very mellow and sweet gal, who lives to spend her time cuddling with her human. She has a typical ACD personality, where she is alert and watchful and loyal to her person. She doesn't have the typical ACD energy level and would much rather spend time hanging around the house with a short jaunt through the neighborhood than spend her time always going/chasing/herding. She gets along great with dogs that are her size and larger but she doesn't really play much. She has had zero accidents since coming into her foster home and willingly goes into and is quiet in her crate. She has only chewed on dog toys and has not been destructive in the house. Her favorite thing to do is cuddle up on the couch while her foster mom reads a book or watches TV. She just wants to be nearby.

Bango does have an old injury to her rear left leg. Her hip has zero range of motion, so she walks with an odd gait. She was assessed by the vet and they did not think completing surgery on it would help improve her hip joint and had a chance of making it worse. Bango also has some stiffness in her back/spine (maybe caused from her hip) and so she is not as flexible as other dogs. The SHH vet recommends having her on a joint supplement for the rest of her life to help keep her good joints as healthy as possible.
