Rescue Me ID: 18-04-17-00046Tilly (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Tilly is an absolutely adorable 3 year old (estimated) Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler Mix. This lady weighs about 20 pounds and is absolutely gorgeous with two different colored eyes. She is very sweet but can be shy at first glance - but within minutes she is sitting at your feet asking to be loved on. She loves to play, but also loves to just curl up and snuggle with you. She has a heart of gold and a gentleness to her soul. A reasonably quiet home with a good routine would probably suit her best. She has made the very long trip from Texas to Massachusetts and is now looking for her forever home - could it be yours? Adoption ... (Read More)fee is $450, which includes spay/neuter, microchip, USDA transport, vaccines, health certificate and Massachusetts mandatory animal quarantine. If you'd like to apply for Tilly or any of our other dogs, please fill out our application online here: If you have any questions about fostering or adopting a dog please contact Yellow Rose Animal Rescue directly at (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chip is a moderate energy boy that loves to snuggle. Chip would be best as the only dog in the home but is able to be a social boy outside of the home. Chip can be a little mouthy so he would do best in a home with older children who understand this play style.

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Michelle! Michelle is an approx 2 years young mystery breed but there's certainly no doubt about her good looks! Our dear Michelle came to us us after she was brought to animal control by a very uncaring 'owner' that never gave her the chance to learn how to be a dog. She has blossomed into an amazingly happy, friendly and playful girl during her stay with her foster family and making great strides with her training. She will need an understanding adopter, that will be able to work with a pup that just doesn't have a lot of confidence and continue boosting her confidence in new seemingly frightful situations. She is currently ... (Read More)residing with another dog, cats and a child. When Michelle came to us she knew literally nothing about life in a home or interacting in the human world. She was afraid just about everything, a collar, the leash, stairs and slippery floors are just a few of the things she had to learn were now normal. Perhaps the saddest thing though, she didn't even know what to do with a toy. She has made such great strides and we are so very proud her for being so brave and conquering so many fears! She has learned to trust and what love is, most importantly happiness. She will still need someone that is willing to continue working with her, shy dogs require consistent training with confidence building. If you have this type of experience and devotion we promise you will not regret giving Michelle a chance. We could just on and on about Michelle all day so if you're interested in giving this exceptional young lady a place to call home contact us today!

Animal ID: 17-12-11-00433Leo (male)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Senior

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

    I'm looking to rehome my Australian Cattle dog, Leo. He is between 11-12 years old and around 45-50 pounds. Due to changes in my life, I can no longer provide him with the life he requires and deserves. Leo is quite the love bug, and really enjoys making human connections either by cuddling up to you or going for a run. He would thrive in a household where he is the only dog. However, he has lived with several breeds of dogs and does just fine as long as he is given consistent boundaries. He is 100% house trained, has received behavior training and is up to date on all shots. Evaluation of applicants will be based on lifestyle and living ... (Read More)environment. Communication via email is best. Please tell me a little about your lifestyle and any questions you have for me! (Less)

    Gracy is a little energy loaded angel. She was rescued from an animal hoarding situation with a bd case of mange. She is almost completely cleared up. She weighs 30 lbs and is about 7 to 8 months old. When we first met Gracie at this filthy place, she didn't want to have anything to do with us. She wouldn't let us touch her at all. As soon as we got her out of this life of hell she became instantly a complete different dog. She is finally a happy puppy with no signs of her past what so ever. She is amazing with other animals, people and kids. Gracie is locate din GA but we have rescue transport available every weekend

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Cattle Dog in Massachusetts
    Australian Cattle Dogs can make good pets in Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts 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.
