Meet the Shop Dog: Ronix 

Earth Below

Holding court in the patch of grass between vegan food cart Earth Below and a picnic table, Ronix looks like a friendly fella. But get close, and the sweet guy is so shy he turns his head away when approached by strangers. Owner Sierrah Umhauer, who runs the cart, says he wishes he could be a cat or a bunny, and he was so small when she got him at 5 weeks that the now-medium-sized dog fit in her purse.

Name: Ronix

Age: 6

Breed: Australian shepherd

Job title: Best friend, vegan food cart mascot

Responsibilities: Chase ball, catch Frisbee, lay in the shade

Favorite part of the job: Chasing the ball

Least favorite part of the job: Getting tired and not being able to chase the ball anymore

What would they do without you? I would be sad! And so would Sierrah!
