Morgan loves a good time in the woods and spends a lot of time on trails across Kentucky and beyond.

More: Picked up by a rescue agency as a skinny stray, Morgan came home with us in May 2017. To be fair, we thought we were getting a running partner but she prefers sprinting after wildlife to jogging. She’s an active dog nonetheless, always ready to explore. If asked which way she wants to go, she heads for the woods every time. When she’s not outside, she’s sleeping on whichever cozy blanket captures her fancy, from bed to sofa to window seat in mom’s home office. She’s as smart as people expect Aussies to be — a champion puzzle solver who can read commands off sheets of paper; will close the door for you or find a treat hidden on another floor. Obviously, she’s the center of our universe.
