Please read completely: FOR INFORMATION ON THIS ANIMAL PLEASE CONTACT 256-883-3783. BE SURE TO HAVE ID# READY. Animals at this shelter are held a reasonable amount of time so at the time of posting it is adoptable and not in immediate danger. However, the time period is limited depending upon the shelter population. Please note: THE SHELTER IS FULL. If you are interested in fostering, the need is great and we would love to have you.

Please ask for assistance. 6) We take cash, checks, debit cards, VISA and Mastercard as a method of payment. **IMPORTANT: Huntsville Animal Services cannot guarantee that I will still be available for adoption as we do not hold animals for anyone under any circumstances. Animals are adopted on a first come, first serve basis. You may want to call and ask if I am still available prior to visiting the shelter. When you adopt me, I will stay at the shelter and be taken to the veterinarian of your choice where I will be spayed or neutered before going to my new home. If I am already spayed or neutered, I can go home with you upon adoption. My adoption cost is very affordable and includes my adoption fee, spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming, license (if you live within Huntsville city limits), a collar and personalized ID tag.

ADOPTION FEES Dogs: $80 - 170 - includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, rabies voucher, deworming, *heart worm and flea/tick prevention; purebred dogs and puppies tend to cost more and dogs that have been in the shelter longer will probably cost less.

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    So they call me Bandit and if you aren't careful I just might steal your heart. All kidding aside I am an adorable 2 year old mix just waiting for my fur-ever home. I think Doug and Wanda are pretty neat for keeping us all fed and cared for but I am really wanting a home of my own. Can I steal a piece of your heart and maybe a spot on your couch? I am a medium sized boy, neuter pending potential adoption, up to date on all my shots, and look like I could have some Australian Cattle Dog, Swedish Vallhund, or Australian Kelpie in my background. But whatever I may be a combination if, I am the sweetest little outlaw you have ever seen, and ... (Read More)promise to not be a cat burgler! My adoption fee is $30, please come by and visit and maybe even bring me home with you! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 13-11-15-00015Spots (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    A seriously lovable medium-large sized 4 year old boy, Spots has subtle spots all over his coat much like an Australian Cattle Dog, and a few big spots like the cute one around his left eye. Spots is SO excited to have visitors at the shelter, and adores a good back scratching. He is built a bit like an American Staffordshire, but regardless of what breeds he looks like, this is a dog that wants a family of his own to baby, love, and pay him some attention. He loves getting petted and has been known to ignore a dog treat to instead push in front of a kennel mate in order to get his back scratched. Spots is already spayed and all UTD on his ... (Read More)shots. He can get a little grumpy if he is tired with other male dogs, so Spots' ideal family would be one with only 1 female or no other dogs, mostly so he could soak up all the love! He is not a fan of baths, but he doesn't mind getting brushed. Spots is an exuberant and happy fellow that wants to share his smile with you forever. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Cattle Dog in Alabama
    Australian Cattle Dogs can make good pets in Alabama if they match your IifestyIe. The Australian Cattle Dog is one of the most intelligent dog breeds, needing a lot of attention to stave off boredom. A neglected Australian Cattle Dog can become destructive. Australian Cattle Dogs have strong herding instincts and behave best when they have plenty of space and a job to do. Australian Cattle Dogs are well suited to farms and homes with large yards; they do not do well confined to an apartment or other small space. Australian Cattle Dogs are loyal and very obedient with attentive training. An Australian Cattle Dog tends not to do well with children unless it has known them since it was a puppy. Australian Cattle Dogs may be very close to their masters and reluctant to accept other people.

lnteresting Australian Cattle Dog Trivia Low-Cost Alabama Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Australian Cattle Dogs were bred by 19th century Australian pioneers to herd cattle on large ranches. Most Australian Cattle Dogs have a star-shaped marking on their foreheads called the Bentley Mark, after dog owner Thomas Bentley, whose purebred dog supposedly passed this mark on to all genuine Australian Cattle Dogs. Australian Cattle Dogs are descended from several different breeds, including Dalmatians and Smithfield Collies, which are now thought to be extinct.
