Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    When you meet Diamond, you cannot help but grin from ear to ear because her bubbly personality is contagious! You would never know where she came from, because all she cares about now is enjoying life! Diamond's history is unknown, since she was found in a crate in an abandoned house in Philadelphia. After being bounced around once the shelter housing her closed down, she came to stay with us at Adopt-A-Dog. She was a little reserved when we first met her, but that is not a problem anymore! Diamond has come completely out of her shell and is ready to find a family to love! This exuberant girl enjoys long walks, play dates with other dogs, ... (Read More)and playing fetch. Above all else, though, she enjoys being around people. She is currently learning basic obedience which will help her stay a little calmer when she meets new people, but she will always have a joyful and energetic personality! She would do great with a fun-loving family that will match her personality. She could live with another active dog in a home with older children or teenagers. If you are interested in meeting her, call (914)-273-1674. (Less)

He is very smart and knows how to make the best out of his space. He is so cute when he wraps himself in a blanket! He is very well behaved. He is extremely smart and willing to please.

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-06-00264Oslo (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Oslo is a sweet, smart, and snuggly little guy. We rescued him in April 2014 from a shelter that had no information on him. He was untrained, although naturally very well-behaved. We have taken training him very seriously and he now knows most basic commands, as well as some pretty adorable tricks (be polite = cross his front paws). We make sure he gets to play with other dogs at the park for at least an hour every day, as well as taking him out for more shorter walks. Unfortunately, while he is very quiet in the apartment (does not chew on things, doesn't get into the trash or counter-surf, spends most of his time sleeping on his dog bed or ... (Read More)in his crate), he does seem to be struggling with anxiety associated with living in NYC, causing him to try and herd our houseguests and sometimes nipping at people out of fear. He seems very, very happy when we are able to take him into nature for hikes and, while we want more than anything to keep him, we would rather find him a home where he can thrive than to start him on anti-anxiety medication (although, we will continue to work with him and - if we cannot find him a happy home - we will consider medication rather than giving him to a shelter). He is a really special friend who is just bursting with potential. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Sycamore is 4 going on 5 years old. She is a great medium size dog. She is a little chubby from not having the proper exercise daily. Very short fur so she does not shed very much. She is very sweet and loves people of all sizes, especially children. we have never met a person that didn't think she was the sweetest girl. We have had her almost a year now because she is very dog selective. The ideal home we would like to see her in is with no other animals. We have had her with dogs before and when she arrived at our rescue she had a litter of puppies. We think she would be the happiest in an only animal home. If you are interested in ... (Read More)meeting her you can fill out an application located on our website at and we can set you up with an appointment to come meet her. I can guarantee she'd enjoy that and make a very loyal family member. She is housebroken, crate-trained and GREAT with kids. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    The Flynn Family Saved My Life! Somehow, it seemed all of a sudden, but it really was a matter of weeks our Dog House (kennel building) was all but empty! Oh, no, soon we would be out of dogs!!! One of our favorite shelters to visit in TN had been pleading for our help several times over the last couple of months, but we just didn't have room - until now. A quickly planned transport was underway in a matter of a couple of days. Susan and Denise were going to make the trip and one of our Rochester area volunteers offered to fund the trip as a way to show her teenage daughter what a wonderful thing it is to be giving. 6 a.m. came ... (Read More)fast and off they went with an empty van full of crates. It didn't take long at the shelter to choose enough to fill it to capacity and back home they headed. Our dog house was full again by 10 p.m., a whirlwind of a quickie trip. Thank you Flynn Family and thank you Susan and Denise! Joe was born about October 10, 2012 and may weigh about 40 lbs. He is adorable and sweet and wonderful with the other dogs. Joe is an extremely playful guy and would like an active home. This is all we know so far. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Adult

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

    This is MISSY. She`s a 7 year old red and white Australian Cattle Dog. She was just spayed, vetted and microchipped. She needs a loving home where she can regain her confidence and be the great dog she is. NO small children and no cats. She formerly lived on a cattle farm working the cows and lived with several other dogs, however I have found she can be picky about her canine friends so we would need a meet and greet with any dogs already in your home. She is an indoor pet house broken, crate tolerant, affectionate and friendly. Contact Jackson`s Legacy at or Lori Smith on FB if you would like to adopt MISSY

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-13-00799Prius Somerset (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Prius was born about May 30, 2013 and weighs about 35 lbs. He's been good with the other dogs and wonderful with all the humans that e has met. He does have a bobbed tail and he sure can wiggle that little stump. It appears he ended up at the shelter because he enjoys chasing livestock - a Heeler/Border Collie mix - really? So, we are going to guess that running, screaming, little children should not be in his next home. When there is no livestock you might as well chase the kids! All our dogs from the south have been tested for heart worm. This dog's life was spared due to our incredible FACEBOOK FANS!!!!! An e-mail came to JR ... (Read More)begging us to help the southern shelter just a few hours before they were to be killed! Money has been a little tight around here and I (Joye) knew we didn't have the financial means to make the trip that tends to run about $800.00. But, you all came through and we were able to maximize the trip to 19 dogs out of Kentucky along with a side trip to West Virginia!!! Thank you to Susan & Denise for making this LONG journey and to Katie for meeting them here after midnight to help unload. To everyone that made this happen - THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have discovered that Prius's one leg does something a little funny so we had an x-ray done and there is what the vet had to say: 'Lateral luxated patella due to pronated humerus secondary hip dysplasia of left hip. Unable to reduce LLP to normal position. Not painful upon walking, tender upon manipulation.' OK....I asked for a layman's explanation, but struggling to get an answer. Upon googling a few terms here it seems, to me, that he was compensating for hip dysplasia in one leg and it caused a twisting of the humerus resulting in a luxating patella. The good news is there is no pain and I'm assuming no surgery can fix all this. He trucks around here just fine, happy, funny, little guy. I'm going to guess that a lifetime of glucosamine and chrondroitin would be a good thing and later in life, if/when pain begins for the dysplasia some pain management should begin. But, please, if you are interested in Prius he is just wonderful and doesn't care if he's not perfect, talk to your vet about this vet's diagnosis. We can also ask our vet to forward the x-rays to your vet. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Cattle Dog in New York
    Australian Cattle Dogs can make good pets in New York 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 New York Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Australian Cattle Dogs were bred by 19th century Australian pioneers to herd cattle on large ranches. 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.
