Rescue Me ID: 16-01-06-00206Sissy (female)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sissy is a miniature red heeler, found scronging for food in early Oct, 2015. Search for owner failed. Took her to a Petsmart vet, hoping she was microchipped, she isn't. Vet said she is appx 1 to 2 yrs old, spayed, HW negative. She got a rabies vaccine, and is on HW preventitive. She weighs 21 pounds & is very active---loves her daily walks or runs. She's affectionate, beautiful, deserves a loving home w someone w some dog skills. Sissy was apparently never socialized, as she does not like other dogs, especiallynot big dogs. I have 2 male, neutered pitbulls from a local shelter, one is 86lbs, the other is 55lbs. They are dog friendly, but ... (Read More)Sissy is not. After a couple wks of walking all 3 together (w 2 people), sissy accepted the 55-pounder as part of her pack--no trouble with those 2. The bigger one, however, she acts aggressive towards and I've had to keep them separated at all times, even tho they've had a lot of supervised walks/together time. Sissy pushed open a door I thought was closed and rushed the big boy, latching onto a hind leg before I could get to them. She bit him twice and he doesnt like her anymore. Ive been trying to find a good home for her, w/out luck. My big dog is more stressed by having her in the house than I knew: last night I had to walk Sissy 1st, then walk the boys (due to no one to assist). When me & the 2 boys crossed paths w a couple walking a small fog, my big boy got excited and lunged at my smaller boy, twice! I managed to stay between them, but it was scarey. My big boy has never acted like this--the 2 boys have been together, w me, since 2010. It isnt Sissy's fault thay she wasn't raised properly, and she deserves a loving home where she can have a job, or be active. She is really very loving, aside from her dog issues. I realized last night I no longer have the luxury of keeping her much longer. My fear is that if I take her to a shelter she will never come out. I will continue trying to post a photo, but can email some if you'd care to see her. Sissy & I are in serious need of help. Thanks in advance. Mo Roberts p.s. we're in south Alabama, but I will get her to any good home, anywhere. (Less)

Animal ID: OSC 35Victoria (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult


    This is a courtesy post. Please contact Jeanette at 256-486-4860 for more information. Victoria is a BEAUTIFUL girl who is about a year and a half old. She is not a snuggly girl, but she is house-trained, crate-trained, spayed and UTD on shots. She likes most dogs, but not all dogs. She would really like to be an outside dog with a huge fenced area. She walks well on a leash and adores eating treats out of your hand. She will follow you around, but maintains her independence.

Rescue Me ID: 15-10-29-00010Ramona (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Ramona, a 3 year Australian Cattle Dog mix around 40-45lbs. Her and her eight puppies were unwanted and unloved; left at the high kill shelter to die. Luckily, we found them before it was too late. Ramona's beautiful babies have been adopted, leaving her all alone. Ramona is an extremely timid dog. Who knows what she went through before we rescued her. It appears she has had some major damage to her front leg (a break that was never treated and left to mend back together on its own). Ramona is such a sweetheart. She is calm and wants to be loved, but the poor girl is just so scared of everything (we assume she was abused due to her ... (Read More)fear of being around people). She is great with other dogs and cats, but she needs some rehabilitation before being unattended around kids. She would not hurt them, but she would be frightened with lots of high activity around her (wouldn't want her to re-injure her leg trying to get away from the commotion). She deserves a great home where someone will be patient and give her the time and love she needs to gain her trust. She is ready for adoption today, but only to experienced adopters. (Less)

He was chasing chickens so he has spent the last year and a half of his life on a chain. He is heartworm negative and has been brought up to date on ... (Read More)his vaccines, as well as his heart worm and flea and tic preventatives. He gets along great with other dogs, chickens and cats, not so much. Sam would be a wonderful family dog, he loves adults and children. A good fenced in yard is imperative.

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.
