    Rosie is an energetic little lady who loves everyone she meets! We really don't know what she is a mix of. The shelter called her a lab mix, not sure of that. She has speckles on her white chest and socks that make us think cattle dog. She is only about 32 lbs and 8-9 months old. She is a snuggler who melts in your arms one minute and is bouncing and ready to play the next. She would be a wonderful playmate for children. Rosie is spayed and up-to-date on her vaccines. If you are interested, please go to and fill out the online application. We do need a vet and personal reference and will be doing a home ... (Read More)visit. (Less)

(Read More)small children as he can be startled by them. (Children around the age of 13 or older may be alright.) Blu does well with other dogs who are stable and will give him space to adjust. Hand signals are helpful with Blu. Examples of basic signals would be 1) Come (point to your feet) 2) Sit (lift hand in upward motion) 3) Stay (palm of hand facing forward as one would signal someone to 'STOP') 4) No (one finger motioning back and forth). Blu is very energetic & agile. He walks good on a leash. He would make an excellant jogging & hiking partner. He is learning to fetch and loves to play tug-of-war with a rope.

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-28-00010Sadie (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sadie was rescued with her litter of pups from a falling down garage on an abandoned property the day after she gave birth. Sadie is very shy and wary of humans. It is possible she was born on that property herself. She is starting to trust the adult female in her foster home but is still wary of the adult male. She loves playing with the other dogs in her foster home and discovered what being a dog is all about. Sadie seems to be a lab mix with a smaller stature. We are starting to think she has cattle dog and her spots are hidden by the black. Her puppies were spotted and Sadie runs around the yard like a dog herding and can jump quite ... (Read More)high. The adoption fee is $200. Sadie is up-to-date on her vaccinations and wormed. She is being spayed this week. If you are interested in this pretty girl, go to and fill out the online application.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-01-00264Diamond (female)

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. If you would like to fill out our adoption application, please go to (Less)

Animal ID: 14-11-13-00583MISSY (female)

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.
