    Hi! My name is Lucky and I'm the most loving pup you'll ever meet! I'm a 1-year-old German Shepherd mix and weigh about 65 lbs. I enjoy being outside and running around with other dogs, but I also love cuddling with people. I'm really smart, so I'm already house-trained (which means no accidents for me)! I'm good in my kennel and will lay down when it's time to go to bed. So if you're looking for an adventurous pup to give you unconditional love and be your forever cuddle-buddy, then I'm your boy! I currently live in a foster home in Texas, but transport will be included in the adoption fee and arranged by Rescue Road Trip if you choose to ... (Read More)adopt! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-05-00048Booth (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our Booth is a comical character! He came to us from another Rescue that was flummoxed by his misguided behavior. Booth seems to be an Australian Cattle Dog, but his squat, compact stature suggests a wee bit of Corgi. Booth is a double dose of herding dog, so he definitely needs an active lifestyle and a job. Herders are hardwired to work, and if his adopters do not give Booth a job, he will practice his herding skills within the household. A bored, frustrated herding dog is a recipe for Mayhem. Exercise and obedience training are the keys to managing the Herding Breeds. Booth is a high-energy dog, who would make a great running, walking or ... (Read More)hiking partner. He's built for speed, but will adjust his pace to suit his handler. He needs at least three brisk daily leash walks, in addition to focused playtime. Adopters can increase the intensity of a walk by outfitting Booth with a dog backpack, loaded with water and a collapsable bowl. At each rest and water stop, Booth will feel like he's got a job and will be quite proud of himself. Obedience training is essential to meeting the needs of a Herding dog. Booth already knows all of his basic obedience commands and has passed many of his Canine Good Citizenship tests. We have even made progress with his fearfulness at the vet, and now he is easily muzzled and behaves well during his exam. Structure and obedience work go a long way in providing him the mental and physical challenges that he needs. Adopters should be prepared to troubleshoot things that come up with Booth, as he transitions to a new environment. Booth is best suited to an active adult home, with a very dog savvy single or couple, who have the time and energy to give him his daily exercise. Tranquility and calm suit Booth best. In a chaotic, hectic environment he becomes anxious and demonstrates herding behavior in order to maintain social order. In a calm environment, Booth relaxes and enjoys quiet time with his people. Kids and cats may provide too much stimulation, but Booth could easily join a multi-dog home. Booth has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained, although adopters should expect to troubleshoot a few accidents during his transition to a new routine. He is in excellent health, has been neutered. He has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. If you are interested in Booth, please write to or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. (Less)

    Hi, my name is Mac. I am 8 months old and weigh 44 LB's. My foster mom says I am a very special pup. I would be a great service dog. I would do best with a family that understands the 'cattle dog breed' because you put the time into me, my foster mom says I will be a shining star. I had a bit of a rough start so need someone who is patience but doesn't baby me. I've been working with my foster mom and siblings - I've been a superstar at The Container Store and Home Depot. Are you my forever family?

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Cattle Dog in Connecticut
    Australian Cattle Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut 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 Connecticut 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 excellent at catching frisbees. The Australian Cattle Dog nips at a cow's heels to keep it in line with the herd, and may apply this technique to its humans from time to time as well.
