Rescue Me ID: 16-09-23-00475Stella (female)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Adult

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

    My father passed away suddenly and left behind his two wonderful dogs. I am only able to adopt one of them, so I need to find a new home for sweet Stella. She's loving, affectionate, smart as a whip, and eager to please. It's very important to me to find a loving, active home that can give her the time, exercise, and attention that she deserves.

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-15-00529Nova (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Through no fault of her own, I am having to rehome my girl, Nova. NOVA is a labrador/Golden retriever/cattle dog mix (DNA test confirmed), approx. 2 years old, 70 lb. spayed female. She is up to date on all of her vaccines, is microchipped, and has graduated from Petsmart's beginner training class. She is great with kids and cats, but would be better off as the only dog, unless the other dog(s) is/are submissive. She is a great dog for someone who likes to hike or be outdoors, and she loves to be with her family no matter what they are up to. She is a sweetheart and loves to cuddle, either on the couch or at your feet. Nova is house broken ... (Read More)and crate trained. I prefer she goes to a home that has a large yard with a tall secured fence, but she does just fine indoors as long as she gets regular exercise. A home visit/meet and greet will be conducted to make sure she is going to a good home. References of any potential adopters will be requested and checked! She really is a fantastic dog and it breaks my heart to have to let her go! More photos available upon request, and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have. We are in Albuquerque, but I would be willing to help transport her out of state, so long as she goes to a great home. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-15-00404COOPER (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    One of COOPER'S nicknames should be Einstein because he is super-smart! This young man just graduated his 8 week training course and he truly excelled and impressed everyone in the class. The volunteer working with COOPER in training was so grateful to work with him. She said he taught her a lesson in resiliency and the power of not giving up; she was so impressed and inspired by his joyful spirit. He has great endurance. COOPER can already sit, stay for long periods of time, shake paws, walk on a leash without pulling, and avoid tempting foods until given permission to eat. He will also alert you to dangers nearby (like snakes). He not ... (Read More)only obeys commands, he anticipates them and will usually do exactly what you're about to ask him to do. He is a very grateful and compassionate dog- you can see a lot of this in his face. Cooper very much enjoys running and swimming- he could easily replace your gym membership. He has a resilient spirit and a desire to please. Though energetic Cooper does enjoy sitting in laps and lounging on the couch with you. Cooper is about 1 1/2 years old, neutered, up to date on vaccines, crate trained and house-trained. COOPER is a GEM of a dog- the kind of dog that makes you appreciate the fact that dogs exist and he will make a wonderful addition to your active home.

    FRECKLES is a sweet dog who endured much abuse. We've had her in our rescue over a year and she has improved tremendously and has gained confidence. She needs a hero -- someone who will take time to get to know her and let her know you. She's terrific in the house, loves her walks, and likes car rides too. She needs an experienced dog person who wants to give much love and offer much indoor comfort and give her space when she needs it in the beginning. Once she knows you, she will want to cuddle on the couch and in bed. She has a sense of humor :-) And she likes toys and chewies and good food (meats). Freckles has hemangio sarcoma of the ... (Read More)skin and is recovery very well. Freckles is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped, she's about 65-70 pounds, and 6-8 yrs old.

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Adult

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

    This sweetie pie was my dad's dog, but he passed away recently. She's very sweet and intelligent, and would thrive in an active, outdoorsy household. She's being fostered at a doggy day care in Albuquerque, NM, and is doing great with the other dogs and all of the people. I would love to find her a family that can put her through obedience classes and maybe even agility, since I think she's very eager to learn and to work.

    Ghost is a fantastic dog. A great companion, sweet. Good on a leash walking or running. He knows and follows basic commands such as Sit, Stay (mostly) and Leave It. He is active needing exercise which he loves the ball and retrieving the ball. He lives by Exercise, Discipline and then Affection. He needs a yard and activities. He needs work in the car and with strange dogs - he will bark and lunge at strange dogs. Okay with other dogs he knows but would be best as an only dog. He is crate trained. We are incredibly sad to even consider re-homing him. We would be open to hiring a dog trainer to work with him/you for the adjustment. ...

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-17-00183Mya (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, Mya is a energetic, loyal loving Red heeler and Austrain Pincher mix. She is 1 year and 3 months old. We have had her since she was a new born however since we had a baby we have realized we are not the right family for her. Mya needs a home were there is a lot of space, if not then a family with a active life style will be fine. She needs at least 45 min of activity a day, either running, a dog park or something. She has grown up with our other dog jazzy and they are besties, it takes her a few days to warm up to other dogs. We are not sure how she is with cats. Mya is a protective dog, so once she settles in with you and you become ... (Read More)family, she will be very timid around outsiders and people who she doesnt know. If you have children, we reccomend they are 5 years or older, so they know not tease her. She is very high energy and is always down or a cuddle session or to play (especially rough house around). Being active is very important so she wont dig up or destroy your backyard. Since she is still a puppy it is not too late for dog school or a dog trainer. She picks up on stuff pretty fast and is willing to learn if you spend the time with her. She prefers to be outside most of the day and sun bathe and the other half of the day she likes to lay by your feet and relax. She is spayed, house trained and up to date with all of her shots. If you have any questions please feel free to text Ami at 9168475473. We are located in Rio Rancho and would like to meet with you before placing her in your home. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Curry was abandoned along with her sister at a feedstore. They were taken in by a family and given as Christmas presents. They were working out fine until the unspayed female dog in the home started attacking them as they grew older. Curry is great with kids, dogs, and cats. She is shy at first, especially around men, and warms up faster with kids but is very loving and wants to please. She loves to give kisses. She is about 1 year old and is red heeler mix. She is very playful and active. She does need another playful dog in the home she goes to. She loves to go to the dog park. She would make an excellent running/jogging partner (on ... (Read More)leash). She also would be great to take as a hiking partner. She would be a wonderful match for a family with an active life style.

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-25-00183Ernie (courtesy) (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    Ernie is a sweet, trusting, friendly, and playful little guy, but almost completely blind. (He can make out large, contrasting shapes, and detect movement.) But he has excellent hearing and a great nose. He is small enough to carry, if need be, and quite agreeable to being lifted. He is friendly to all the dogs who greet him through his kennel mesh. Ernie was chained up and abandoned, and that's about all we know of his past. Our vet says there is nothing to be done for his vision, but he is otherwise in good shape for an older guy. Ernie needs a small home, so he can figure out where everything is, a safe little corner to call his own, and ... (Read More)someone to love and care for him. If you would like to meet Ernie, please email Abbie Lynn at mauiranch@yahoo.com. (Less)

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

Australian Cattle Dog
lnteresting Australian Cattle Dog Trivia Low-Cost New Mexico 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.
