    Well, Hellooooo.....I'm Millie. I have one pretty blue eye and one pretty brown eye to go along with my pretty face and extra-pretty long tail. I am one of the sweetest GSP-mixes you'll ever meet, I promise. I came to GPPR a few months ago after I was found in a ditch by the side of the road. I don't like to talk about what happened, but I couldn't walk and I had to have surgery on my hip. I'm recovering nicely and I have some terrific kangaroo dance moves to show you! I can jump a 4 ft fence with the greatest of ease'| I'm the Great Millieroo! I'm about 2 years old. I can see and hear just fine (sometimes people wonder about that because ... (Read More)of my eyes). Here's the thing'| I really need a job. My GSP side of the family has hard workers, no doubt. But it is my Herding Breed side of the family that really influences my behavior. And we need to work, work, work. Or else we get into trouble, trouble, trouble. I have a lot of energy and am super-intelligent. I would do best in a home with someone who is herding-dog-savvy and maybe even has other herding dogs who will help keep me in line. I'm smart, bossy, nippy, and a bit weird about being away from my people'| you know, all the things that make me a good herding dog. I'm also an amateur car-herder, so I'll need extra supervision, training, fencing, and/or a good tie out system to make sure I don't get hurt (again). I have been working very hard to overcome my separation and kennel anxieties. I have a hard time relaxing until my pack leader lets me know exactly what I should be doing and makes me work for my privileges. I'm just sort of old fashioned, that way. I have stopped eating kennels in my spare time but still have some work ahead of me in the anxiety department. Are you a confident pack leader in search of a sweet little Millieroo? I'm an intelligent, loyal, snuggly, playful, hard-working, sometimes-a-little-impish girl with so much love to give. Call me! Millie is being fostered near Minneapolis, MN. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Cattle Dog in Minnesota
    Australian Cattle Dogs can make good pets in Minnesota 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 Minnesota 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. 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. Australian Cattle Dogs are descended from several different breeds, including Dalmatians and Smithfield Collies, which are now thought to be extinct.
