Animal ID: Ruger (Twin Falls ID)Ruger (Twin Falls ID) (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ruger is appropriately named, cuz' he's a pistol. He's Boston Terrier/heeler cross and to make him happy, all you need to do is either grab his leash or give him a bone. He will be the perfect jogging and hiking partner for someone he loves being outdoors with is people doing whatever they are doing. He loves to run, and jump, maybe becoming a Frisbee champ is in his future, he also likes to play tug with his rope. And if you give him a bone, he will be occupied for hours on end. He's a little shy when you first meet him, but will be your best friend in minutes. He's just a dog looking for a family to love him. And what's not to love, I ... (Read More)mean, look at that happy face! He has all the good things going for him too, he's house trained and although he hasn't been around a lot of little kids, he has been fine with the one or two he has been around when they come to visit. So respectful kids over 8 would be best. He's approximately 18 months old, we would recommend that he have a few obedience classes so he can learn how to communicate with each other and to build his confidence. He's not aggressive, but will bark other dogs when he sees them, and when he gets nervous - he may pee just a little, both are easily resolved with patience and time for him to become comfortable with his surroundings. Ruger has been neutered, his up to date on his shots and ready for his new home. His a small/medium size dog weighing in at 31 pounds. For anyone interested, please email Requested donation is $350, Transportation to his new home can be arranged. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Puppy

    Darling Brooklyn is approx 10mo old and currently weighs about 30lbs. She is a very affectionate, friendly girl that loves everyone she meets. She absolutely loves other dogs and needs to have an active, playful, friendly, hearing dog in the home that will help guide her as she continues to learn manners and basic training. She is VERY smart and is very responsive to hand signals... and she is learning more and more of them every day. She loves to run so she'd be a great jogging and hiking partner. She does get a little anxious in the car but she's learning to be calm and enjoy the ride. Brooklyn is wonderful in her crate so she can be ... (Read More)left home alone for up to 6hrs.

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Baby is a 4-5 year old red heeler (or Australian Cattle dog) mix. She is the sweetest girl ever. She is great with dogs of all sizes and with cats. She has lived with cats and small dogs her entire life. She was surrendered to our rescue because her owner was incarcerated and no one in his family could keep her. Despite of losing the only home she's ever known, her human, and all of her animal buddies, she has no anxiety and is calm and sweet. She does well in the crate and is potty trained. She has no food or toy aggression, or any aggression for that matter. She had no shots, was covered in fleas and had flea dermatitis, wasn't spayed and ... (Read More)has obviously been bred. She is now current on all shots, treated for fleas, and will be getting spayed on March 27 (that's the earliest our clinic had an opening). During her spay she will also get her nails trimmed and get a microchip. She is on the larger side for a heeler and will bark at people walking by the yard so she is also great guard dog. She will be a great addition to any family. (Less)

Animal ID: Keebler (Southern ID)Keebler (Southern ID) (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi there! I'm Keebler (2 yrs young)and I know you're probably wondering what kind of exotic breed of dog I may be - possibly a 'Basseeler' or maybe a 'heel-ound' I'm not sure what my pedigree is, but I can assure you that my personality is nothing but happy and the sweetest you'll meet. My outstanding qualities are that I get along with other dogs AND cats, in fact the cats in my current home love me. I will give them a courtesy chase should they run, but I would never hurt them. The four dogs I'm currently living with are all sizes, females and males and we get along just great. I love to play chase, do a little wrestling, but mostly I ... (Read More)just want to be a part of the group. Also, I am a very quick learner, especially if there's a treat involved. I know sit, down, come and I'm working on stay, that one is hard, but I'm told I'm getting better at it. I like going for a ride in the car and I'm really good on a leash, in fact I will help you by holding the leash in my mouth while we walk. Since I can't really tell anyone what my previous life was like, all I can tell you is that it has made me really want to be with you, especially when I first come home with you so I don't feel like I have been abandoned again. I will need a home with a family that will be patient enough to understand that I need some time to get to know that I am safe and secure with them. I don't like to go outside by myself, I do much better if I can see you while I'm out going potty, I know it's asking a lot, but it's just until I feel comfortable and secure with my surroundings. If interested in knowing more about Keebler and the adoption process, contact Adoption fee is $350.00. Transport may be available to approved adopters. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-02-17-00147Link (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Link Is a great companion to a person. He loves to make his master happy and be loved by his master. He is always playful and ready to go. Though some of the Heeler in him comes out when you play and he tries hearding you and nipping at your shirt. He stops after being told not to but still it happens. He does not get along with other dogs, though has not been properly socialized, with the proper training and guidance I don't see a problem with him learning to behave. He learns quickly and is motivated by food, and knows a few commands, Sit, Wait, and Gentle (take treats nicely). Would be best in a home either with his sister Zelda, ... (Read More)or with someone who is single and has lots of time and space. Would do fine in a family setting to as he loves children especially young ones that give him lots of attention, which he reciprocates with lots of licking and following. His sister Zelda whom is posted on here as well. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-02-14-00529WOLFIE (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Proudly presenting WOLFIE, Wolfie arrived in WA in January after an 18 hour ground transport that brought him from CA. There he had been gone through a lot. After being attacked by one of her dogs, a woman had dropped WOLFIE off at a local vet but never returned to pick him up, nor pay the bill. He had undergone surgeries around his head and neck. Then my rescue heard of this situation and offered to take WOLFIE on. He still was altogether 4 weeks in a vet crate with little to no exercise. He was more than willing to leave this place. Since his arrival on Orcas island Wolfie has well settled in the home of the founder of ... (Read More)after the first two days of initial anxiety to be back in the night in a wire crate and trying everything to make his way 'out', he then and ever since has no problem to get into his crate of 42' for the night. He is well with other dogs (living with 2 big male dogs and 1 female, as well as 3 cats. Wolfie is respectful with cats but just cannot help it to chase them a bit - but nothing dangerous. The founder of also rescued a 4 months old kitten to which he is all the time exposed whilst in the house. So if you have a cat(s) a cohabitation will work. WOLFIE walks well on a leash/harness but you have to have a solid grip on the leash at all times- especially if he sees rabbits, squirrels or deer. A strong command of 'NO' and a verbal correction is very well received by Wolfie. He likes car rides, and does not get sea-sick. As for eating he is picky at times -meaning he eats a bit of kibbles, then stops or does not eat at all but then returns to his food dish to finish breakfast or dinner (WOLFIE is fed twice), and he loves cottage cheese (but not mixed with kibbles). He would possibly like a lot to be with another dog (in his opinion 'females' preferred%81S. Regarding being with children - I think he would be not good in handling random, uncontrolled approaches as children use to practice- and will run away and shy away. So I think a home with adults only that are around most of the time would be preferred and to his best. He can hang out with you forever inside - as he loves 'his' human and the sheer presence of you gives WOLFIE the comfort he so longs for. But when he sees you grabbing his leash'|WOLFIE (oh boy) is ready to 'go'. He is a mix of a Australian shepherd and Chow (most likely), weights about 45lbs and is around 5-6. Up to date with vaccinations for 1 year, microchipped and neutered. If this profile triggers a bit your interest, please contact me at - tell me a little bit about yourself, your other pet(s) you might have and add some photos. I would be please to call you back and we can talk more. WOLFIELY yours. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Darling CeCe is a 50lb, 3yr old fun-loving, fast paced girl that loves to run, hike and hang out with her people. She also loves to pull you on your skateboard or run along side you while riding a bike. She would be a great family dog for an energetic, active family that has a big backyard in which she can run and play and kids over 12 yrs old. Although she's ok with neutral energy dogs to whom she's been properly introduced, she would prefer to be the only dog in the home. NO cats for this girl! We believe she may have some husky in the mix because although she's not much of a barker, she is very talkative, with lots of 'woowoowoo's' ...

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.

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. 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.
