Rescue Me ID: 15-06-23-00777Tucker (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Tucker is a beautiful 1 year old blue heeler. He was found as a stray on a hiking trail. He is wonderful with people, very loyal and affectionate. We are not sure how he is with kids, but due to his energy level, he may be best suited in a household without small children. He gets along very well with our coonhound and chihuahua. We have only had him for about 3 weeks, but he showed unprovoked aggression towards my parents' older lab in their yard. We do not think we can provide the kind of home that Tucker needs. He would flourish in a household with a large amount of land, possible even a farm, to run around in. He needs some sort ...

He is a very happy dog with a wonderful temperament with the exception of his behavior towards unknown dogs. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hot Mess Houlihan got her name because she came in a hot mess. She showed up at a nice person's house as a stray and gracious she was a trainwreck. She had a skin infection, super thin, and heartworm positive. We are estimating her to be about 3 years old so we were not surprised at the heartworm positive part just because heartworms are so common around here. Hot Mess is VERY sweet and chilled and we are guessing she is a red heeler beagle mix based on her size and color. She is very kind, sweet, appreciative of any affection because we don't think she got a lot of it in her life, and is good with dogs who don't try and jump her. She is ...

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Cattle Dog in Tennessee
    Australian Cattle Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee 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 Tennessee 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. Australian Cattle Dogs are descended from several different breeds, including Dalmatians and Smithfield Collies, which are now thought to be extinct.
