Harmony Ridge Princess Tango Kizzy is a petite young border collie who one year ago found her “forever home” with Johnene McDonald and her pack of Australian shepherds.

Tango was taken to the Plumas County Animal Shelter when she was 4 months old because she “ate a $1,000 couch.” The owner was enraged and “boot-kicked” her through the open door. McDonald just happened to be there that day and “fell in love with the frightened pup.”

“I wanted to take her home so much but realized I just couldn’t add another dog to my life,” said McDonald. “I lost sleep all night thinking about that poor frightened pup at the dog shelter. She reminded me so much of my border collie Django who had died of a brain tumor a year and four months prior.”
