|Rescue Me ID: 17-12-18-00435Bindi (female)|
My Aunt has had a female Australian Shepherd/ Cattle Dog Mix since she was a puppy. We have had her the past 4 months, since August. She would do well in a home without any children or other dogs. She has very high anxiety and tends to be aggressive because of this. She's up to date on all of her shots as well as being fixed (medical records can be provided). Best in a home without a ton of visitors in and out. She tends to get anxious around other dogs and children, causing her to chase her own tail and bite it until it its bloody. We've tried medication and multiple vet visits. She's a loyal dog to her owners for the most part, we feel awful for re-homing her again. She's very loyal and once she warms up to people she's very protective. She does bark when people come to the door- and if she knows you she stops barking, if she doesn't know you, she'll keep barking and stand in front of whoever she DOES know like she's protecting them. If a stranger tries to pet her, there is a very good change she will try to nip at them (personally I didn't mind that-she's a great guard dog, and I wouldn't want someone to touch me if I didn't know them either lol). She also does not like 'roughhousing' if you will. So if she's loyal to you and thinks someone is hurting you, she will bark relentlessly at them until they leave you alone. I'm just trying to be as clear as I possibly can about her personality. I don't want anyone to think that she's a cute puppy who snuggles all day and is friendly with everyone. She'll be 6 in February and is very set in her ways. We've tried training and she goes to the vet regularly. I have a young child and other dogs at home and she really doesn't get along with one of our older dogs. We think a peaceful house with mild activity would be best for her. Because of her anxiety/aggression issues we don't want her bouncing from home to home any longer. We just want her to go to a loving home that won't peak her anxiety on a daily basis. I just want to be clear that she can be aggressive. There's just not another option for us with 3 other dogs in the house and a toddler. Thank you. (Less)

|Animal ID: 17-12-11-00433Leo (male)|
Leo is a nurturing dog, who absolutely loves human affection and long walks and hikes. As a natural herding dog, Leo exhibits these characteristics inside the home and at the dog park (herding the pack, nipping dogs heels, following owner) He is best suited in a home where he can have a job to do and plenty of space to roam. Staying in a room for 10-12 hours while his owner is at work is NOT the ideal environment for him. He's very food motivated and a quick learner as his breed is extremely intelligent. Leo is a great walker on the leash and has excellent off leash manners (comes on command). He knows all of the basic commands (sit, ground, lay down, down, off, release, come, wait), but could use some practice on following the commands when around lots of people and perhaps distracted. Leo has lived with several types of dogs and gets along the best with females and males that are the same size or larger than him. He can be dominant towards smaller dogs and would not be on his best behavior in a home with dominant/aggressive smaller dogs. Leo gets along with all adults and kids who have an awareness of how to act around different dogs. He would do best with older kids in the household. He is a gem and a wonderful companion. At 11 years old, he's slowed down a little bit, but you would never know! He will still let you know when its' time for dinner or to go out for a walk/bathroom break, and if he's bored. Having a job to do is very important to keep his intelligent mind busy! (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-09-23-00562Gracie (female)|
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.
