Rescue Me ID: 18-02-01-00080Shelly (42 lb) (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Shelly is a quirky Cattle Dog/Red Heeler mix. Her personality is very sweet but kind of unusual. She loves people and other dogs but is initially nervous/scared around new ones. She loves to be touched and will whine or bark to get you to touch her, which turns some people off because they think she's acting threatening. In reality, she just loves to talk. She's a chatty Patty. So she has this Yin/Yang sort of thing going on. She's been with us for years as a long term foster. She loves all of us but we really think she'd like a less hectic home. Seeking an adopter who's patient and kind, has a fenced yard, and if you have another dog it ... (Read More)should be smaller than Shelly. She LOVES small dogs and her best friend here is a 12 lb yorkipoo. We're recommending an adults only home for Shelly. Not suitable for rental or condo/townhome/twin home situations. Detached home with large yard quite separate from your neighbors is best. Not suitable for farm life because we know she will take off after wildlife and get lost (that's how we ended up with her). --------------------------------------------------------------------- She knows the command 'belly' to roll over for belly rubs. We taught her this as a calming/coping mechanism and it seems to help. We also taught her 'good game' when she's playing with another dog and it's going well (to reassure her that this is a great idea to play with the other dog and the other dog does like this game). She also knows EH-EH as a deterrent when we need to redirect her energy elsewhere. She also knows 'outside' to go out into the yard and 'house' to come back into the house. And of course she knows 'sit'. She's very smart, typical of a Cattle Dog. She also has these strong spurts of energy, but they don't last long. We're talking a 10 minute romp around the yard (the command 'hah' gets her going and we slap at the air as she passes us to keep her going) and then she's tired, comes in for a drink, and settles down. Shelly would probably love to become a trained trick dog. She needs a job. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Shelly will be placed via foster-to-adopt to help her transition and adjust to her new human(s) and to help her human(s) adapt to her personality and needs. She is absurdly well housebroken and has never had an accident as long as she can get out by at least 9 hours. 4 hours is best but she can handle living with someone who works a full time job. --------------------------------------------------------------------- She is middle aged and weighs 42 lb. She loves the outdoors, loves going on walks, and is a somewhat strong leash puller so needs a no-pull harness. She'd make a great hiking companion out in the woods but is not suitable for densely populated areas or dog parks. It's like she picks up on the energy from humans and when there's too many humans around, it overwhelms her. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Are you that special kind of someone who likes to take in dogs that have challenges? If so, then please chat us up about Shelly. You need to be a gentle, well-centered, kind, good pack leader kind of human who's had experience with stressed/nervous dogs. She is really sweet and cuddly and bonds strongly to humans, but she's not suitable for the casual adopter. We're on the hunt for that very special someone who has what it takes to help Shelly thrive. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Cats are a strong no for Shelly. She thinks they are fun to chase and terrorize. Our cat who loves dogs will not go near her and we had to put up a strong gate to give him his own separate space in the house away from Shelly.

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Cattle Dog in Pennsylvania
    Australian Cattle Dogs can make good pets in Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania 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. Australian Cattle Dogs are excellent at catching frisbees. 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.
