Rescue Me ID: 15-05-27-00557Carson (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi, my name is Carson. I am currently in a foster home in Redmond. I've traveled a long way to find my forever home. I was picked up at the city of San Antonio Shelter and put on the euthanasia list! A rescue in Texas saved me and I spent 4 months in a foster home there. Since there are a lot of dogs like me in Texas, I came to Seattle where I hope to find my family. My story: I was in very bad shape when I was rescued. I was suffering from malnutrition and Demodex mange. I was hairless except for the top of my head. I had open wounds on my body and someone had purposely slit my ear lobes. I was unable to stand for very long due to severe ... (Read More)edema (swelling) of my legs due to infection. I now weigh 15 lbs. more than I did 5 months ago. I'm feeling great and most of my hair has grown back in. All that is behind me now and I LOVE being an indoor dog and part of a family. I am a friendly guy and I love all people, including kids. I like cats. I'll even let them rub up against me. I would probably prefer a home with another dog but it isn't mandatory. I lived with 4 other dogs in my 1st foster home and now I have 1 foster brother. I like to play but I'm not very rambunctious so I would appreciate not having a puppy jump all over me all day. The vet estimates my age to be 1 1/2 years to 4 years. Due to the malnutrition, this is as close as he can get. I feel young though and I'm expecting to live a long life. More about me...I love, love, love to ride in the car. Well, actually sleep in the car. I would rather be running errands laying by your side in the car than at home. Though I can be left at home because I'm not destructive and I always wait to go potty outside. I walk well on a leash and a walk at the dog park or a walk around the neighborhood is all the exercise I need. I do occasionally have a limp. No one knows why. I've had 2 x-rays and nothing shows up. The vet thinks I probably have some arthritis brought on by malnutrition. I have not had an easy life:( I am not super cute or fancy (except once you meet me). But people love me and I like to love back. If you're looking for a goofy, sweet, tail wagging, laid back dog come and meet me at my foster home in Redmond! Call Karin at: 425-829-4701 or email pacosrescue@yahoo.com My adoption donation is $300. I've been fully vetted; meaning all vaccinations, neutering, microchip and dental cleaning. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-26-00750Charlie (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    The adorable boy is about a year old and already weighs about 40lbs. He appears to be Viszla, but built like a heeler... maybe some shepherd in the mix, too. Whatever the mix, he is an energetic goofy, playful boy that loves to spend his days wrestling with the other dogs in the fenced backyard or go on long walks/jogs/hiking trips. He's very smart and is learning basics very quickly, but he still needs more training. Although another dog in the home for each would be ideal, it is not necessary as long as he has plenty of doggy playdates. He will make wonderful family dogs with kids over 8yrs old (he's still quite wiggly so will knock ... (Read More)down a small child). He is fully crate trained and almost completely house trained. He must have a fenced backyard and because of his age, he should not be left alone for more than 4-5hr intervals. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-19-00502Tyler (male)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Healthy, happy, ready to go for a run on the beach or a game of frisbee, Tyler is a great dog for an active couple or single person. He has three legs due to an accident and an amputation when he was a pup but he doesn't let that slow him down in the least as he loves jumping high for his frisbee catches. He has lived with his current family for three years but he isn't well-suited to a household with kids nor a life in town with a small fenced in yard. Tyler is a busy boy who needs a job to do and likes to have his person by his side.

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Everyone needs a little Maggie Mae! This 3 month Heeler/Catahoula girl is a mix of sweet and sweeter... She and her brother Buddy were dumped at the home of an elderly cancer patient. He had nowhere for them to go, and appealed to us to take them in so they would not end up at the local high kill shelter in Longview T where their fate would have been sealed. They are with a foster now and have been brought current on vaccines and de-wormer while we search for only the most deserving homes. These pups love attention and sleep quietly together in a crate at the foster's home, where they also get along with her big dogs. They are quite active ... (Read More)and rough and tumble in their play however, so expect to train and provide lots of activity for her! While they have not been cat-tested, they are still young enough that they should be cat-trainable. Maggie deserves nothing but the best after her rough start in life, so all homes require a yard and adopters must be experienced at raising puppies into well adjusted and socialized canine citizens. Home checks are required. Maggie Mae will be popular, so email asap ffor an application. Adoption fee $375 to cover crate and airfare. Email for addl pic and video (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi! My name is Ferdinand and I am a Cattle Dog and Pointer mix waiting for a home of my own. I have been at the Rescue since birth, although I am not sure why nobody has chosen me to join their family. I am a great dog and I really want to please humans. I am a happy dog, and great with other dogs and children. I love car rides and walks, and could definitely use continued leash training. I would do well with an active family that will continue my socialization. A fenced yard and lots of activity would help me remain a mellow, well-adjusted dog. I am house trained, and would do best in a home that could let me out for a potty break during ... (Read More)the day. I am working on my crate training, and the rescue strongly recommends that continue. I am still young, so could possibly get into trouble if left unattended for long periods of time. I am up to date on all my vaccinations, and can be microchipped before going home with you. My adoption fee is $275. My adoption fee allows Valhalla Rescue to continue to provide care and medical treatment (including spay/neuter services) for dogs like me while we look for our forever homes. This fee also helps cover the ongoing costs of caring for less adoptable dogs that require longer stays in the shelter, or more advanced medical treatment before finding their forever homes. If you think you might have the right home for me, please visit the Valhalla Canine Rescue website at www.valhallarescue.org and fill out an adoption application. Once our adoption coordinator receives and approves your application (which includes an in-person home check), they will contact you to set up an appointment to meet me or any of the other dogs in the rescue.

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. 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 descended from several different breeds, including Dalmatians and Smithfield Collies, which are now thought to be extinct.
