Rescue Me ID: 14-11-20-00533Rufus (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Rufus is approximately a 5 month old puppy (Australian Cattle dog/mix) who is very loving and high energy. I rescued him through a friend of a friend because they were not able to keep him where they lived. I currently have an older female cattle dog and felt it would work to take in a puppy; however, over the last 2 months he has progressively gotten more assertive towards my 5 year old. I know this breed tends to be a one owner dog and therefore feel it is in Rufus' best interest to find a new forever home. He is current on vaccinations, house trained, kennels at night, fetches, sits and comes by his name. He would make someone a ... (Read More)wonderful, loyal dog. He needs a home preferably with no children or older children and someone who has more time to continue working with him. He gets along with my other dog just fine as he learns what she will tolerate from him, but likes to pick on the cat. He has not caused any harm to either of my other animals nor my young child. As a puppy, he is teething so likes to chew but has not caused damage to any property just loves rawhides and his biggest issue other than not getting along with my child is jumping up when you come home. I am not asking for any fee for re-homing just want him to have a new loving owner. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Meet Sheba! She is a wonderful girl looking for her loving forever home. Sheba is a well behaved girl who knows a few tricks and is very gentle when taking treats. She can be hesitant in new situations and with new people but quickly warms up. Sheba looks to the people she trusts for reassurance when she feels overwhelmed. Once she gains her confidence, she is an affectionate girl who likes to be near her people. To help her settle in to her new home and build bonds with her new owners, Sheba will need to be taken to a positive reward-based obedience training class. Sheba isn't a huge fan of toys and will need owners who will make sure she ... (Read More)gets a couple long walks daily so she gets the exercise and entertainment she needs. Sheba would do best in a home without cats but is respectful enough to do okay with just the right confident cat that will hold its ground with her. Since she can be a little hesitant at first, Sheba needs a home with older children or adults only who will be patient with her during her adjustment period. Her previous home had a male dog and she would love it if her new home had a male dog who can keep her company and help build her confidence. If you think Sheba might be the dog for you, please come to the front desk to fill out an adoption application so you can spend some quality time with her today. (Less)

    Lewis is am awesome guy! He's create trained and super mellow. I don't think we've ever heard a peep from him. Lewis loves to play with other dogs and loves to be around his people. He's a big boy so he needs someone with large breed experience because of his strength. My apologies for the photo -- not sure why this didn't come across better. He's a beauty!

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Look at that smile and soulful eyes that make one very handsome and endearing dog! Meet COREY, a shy young boy who wants to be able to trust everyone, but has reservations and does take a little time to warm up to people. COREY is affectionate and friendly, great with all dogs and puppies and humans once he has accepted them. COREY would love a family that understands that he will need time to adjust to his new family and lifestyle, who has time to guide him and teach him what expectations are set for him and to give him a safe, wonderful, fun packed life. He has an estimated date of birth of 15 April 2013. COREY is neutered, rabies, core ... (Read More)vaccines, de-wormed, micro-chipped and recently tested negative for heartworm and the 3 tick-borne diseases. He weighs about 50 pounds. COREY has heard there are wonderful loving families in the Pacific Northwest and hopes to be home with one of his own for the holidays. Corey and his siblings are currently in a private rescue in Texas. We will use Paws Without Borders to transport him 'home' and it is included in the $350 adoption donation. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-11-05-00676Duchess (female)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Adult

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

    This is Duchess. She is a Blue Heeler. We call her our adhd dog. She is very hyper but she does not know a stranger and she is great to have around. She likes other dogs as well. She would be great in a home that would have the energy to deal with her, since she is full of energy herself. Duchess is 9 years old. Friends gave her to us along with Sport because they could not keep their dogs anymore. Unfortunately, we can no longer keep her ourselves because my husband lost his job. It is all we can do to feed ourselves. We are not able to feed her and sadly we have not even been able to keep up on her vaccinations because of our ... (Read More)financial situation. Like Sport, she deserves a better home than what we are able to provide her with and would love to see her go to a home that can give her the care and love she deserves and need.

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Quinn is a high energy dog who loves to be around people and other dogs. She is a 55 lb lug who thinks she is a lap dog at times and doesn't know her own weight or strength. Quinn has never shown any aggression towards people or dogs. Quinn is not a good match for a home with cats as she wants to chase them, play with them (aka pounce them), and will do so obsessively. She is also rough with young children as she can barrel past them in pursuit of a cat, ball, sound, or the open door to go out and play. She not aggressive in anyway and is extremely patient with out toddler, but she just is too high strung to be safe around little ones. ... (Read More)She would be fine with old children or with more exercise might settle down nicely. Her energy is very high and she is fast and athletic. She would be an amazing match for someone who could train her for agility or fly ball. She is not for a family with working adults who cannot devote at least an hour EVERY day to her exercise. Quinn has a food allergy that we have narrowed down significantly, but with our young child she manages to sneak foods that make her itch and scratch. She is faithful and loves her people. She is friendly and affectionate with strangers and her family alike. We cannot meet her needs for exercise and with another baby on the way she is just too rough around the house to be safe. It breaks our hearts to be rehoming her, but she's just not the right dog for our household. She's not going to just any home, we will wait to find her the right one, but we do need to start the process in finding her a better fit. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Maddie, like most Blue Heelers, is a very loving and high energy dog who requires lots of exercise. She is extremely intelligent, loyal and loves to play frisbee and fetch. Maddie gets along fine with most dogs but would be happiest as a single family dog. Maddie will not try to eat cats, but she will chase them. Maddie would do well with a very active family that can take her running, swimming or hiking regularly and is willing to put in lots of training time. When Maddie was a puppy she hurt her knee while playing fetch and was not treated for the injury. It slows her down a little but she gets along fine. If you are interested in ...

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy folks, my name is Angus and I have a soft red coat and a nub tail that I wag all the time and a happy go lucky, aiming to please personality! I am playful and respectful of other dogs I have met. I love people but am not overbearing, I am housebroken and like to take care of my yard and check everything out. I seem kid friendly too and would love a family of my own to give my loyalty and love to. I did lose my toe but I am making a full recovering and getting around and playing just fine!

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Max is a highly active, happy boy looking for a responsible, permanent home. He will make a great running/hiking partner with an active family. Max is friendly and well socialized with people but he does better interacting with other bully breeds like himself, because he can bit a rough and rambunctious when he plays. Small children would not be a good match for Max, at least not until he learns better manners. It is mandatory that he'd be signed up for positive based obedience classes, before his adoption can be finalized. He is highly food motivated and will do well with treat motivated training. We don't know how he would do sharing his ... (Read More)home with a cat, but he does not show signs of a high prey drive so far. If you're looking for a loving, social companion Max may be the dog for you. Please fill out an adoption application if you want to meet this dog and find out if you're the perfect match! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-20-00344Pretzel (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Pretzel... a very sweet natured boy that is a bit on the timid side. He's currently about 7mo old and weighs about 15lbs. He should be about 20lbs when full grown. He's a long legged boy so as his confidence builds, he'll be a great walking / hiking partner. He's shy with new people but he loves other dogs so must have another balanced dog in the home to help continue to build his confidence. Pretzel is currently living with 10 other dogs of all sizes and breeds, and 1 cat. Because of his shy nature, children must be over 12yrs old and he should not be left alone for more than 5-6hrs each day.

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

    What a happy boy! Jax is about 1yr old and weighs about 50ish lbs. He has such a great attitude... even when other dogs are barking at him and acting up. He's an athletic, active boy so will thrive with an active family that will take him on lots of walks or better yet, jogging and hiking. He also loves to go on car rides or just run through the yard or roll in the grass (one of his favorite past times!) He's great with other like size dogs, too, and would prefer another playmate in the home. Jax must have a fenced backyard in which to play. He is a very happy, social boy that loves people but is still a bit untrained so children must ... (Read More)be over 10yrs old. (Less)

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