Rescue Me ID: 15-04-10-00401Smee (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Smee is an awesome, awesome dog with a family that loves him very much. Unfortunately, he has a strong herding instinct and is not very patient with toddlers, and his parents have a 16 month old with another on the way. Smee barks at the toddler when cornered and nipped him once (without breaking skin) when played with too roughly. Smee loves his people but is sometimes wary of strangers, especially in his own home. Apart from the toddler, Smee has nipped (without breaking skin) one other person, a man, who flipped him on his back to try to correct him when Smee's parents were not at home. But otherwise, Smee is a very, very rewarding ... (Read More)dog to have around because he is so loyal, loves to cuddle, and likes to learn new skills. UPDATE--We took Smee for a physical and behavioral assessment, the vet has told us that Smee is in excellent physical health, that he is not an aggressive dog, and that his instinct to nip could be resolved with training. We simply do not have the time to give Smee the structure and training necessary. He is a good guard dog with a bark that sounds much bigger than he is. He has trained for marathons and does need daily exercise, a long walk or even a run. He would do best in a home with a backyard to play in, although he has lived in apartments more than once and done fine as long as he gets his chance to let off some steam. He is not crate trained but he is able to hold it without accident all day (both his parents work full time). Smee needs a home without toddlers and with parents who are knowledgable about how to deal with problematic herding dog behavior (i.e. barking and nipping to control a situation). He is a country dog at heart and would do best with an opportunity to spend a lot of time outside and come in to cuddle in the afternoon and evening. We are going to try to keep Smee until we can find a good home for him; we rescued him when he was 6 months and have had him since so he is a member of our family. We are devastated to be giving him up but want to do the right thing by him. That said, we are willing to drive him to a home in a different county or western state if need be. (Less)

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