Rescue Me ID: 16-02-04-00740Georgia (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Puppy

    Georgia will be arriving in her new foster home in Eatonville, WA on Saturday Feb 13th. If you would like to pre-adopt or meet her after her arrival please email us for an application. Georgia came in with several other pups...that I don't think are from the same litter. She's a little shy yet, but coming around marvelously. I believe she is a Heeler mix. She will probably be a medium-size when grown...40-50#s. She is about 4 mos to our best guess. Will need some TLC before you allow small children around her. She just was dropped...thrown away...and yet such a beautiful dog. She will be transported up to the GNW this month and ... (Read More)delivery date is always on a Saturday for your convenience. Adoption Fee: $395. Adoption includes the entire medical (neutering, vaccinations, deworming, deflea/detick meds, and any other medical attention necessary), health certificate required for travel, and transport cost from San Antonio, TX to the PNW. If you would like more pictures, text me your e-mail so that I can send you them and an application in case you want to adopt. (210)394-6060 Terry Wheeler PetcentralSATX San Antonio, Texas (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs

    What a gorgeous boy! Spencer is a very striking, very sweet boy that loves to spend the day away wrestling and running with the other dogs... or going on long walk, jogs and hikes with his people, He's a goofy 10ish mo old boy that currently weighs about 55lbs and should be about 60lbs or so when full grown. Spencer is very smart and eager to learn... and has lots of energy to burn playing learning games. He must have a fenced backyard and an athletically active family that will include him on most outings.

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-30-00657Ryder (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I've had Ryder for five months now. He was 11 months old when I got him. He has an amazing heart and we've had a really good time together. He's super funny, chases his tail, loves finding sticks and giving them to you, and loves his owner more than anything in the world. He wags his whole butt when he hasn't seen you for more than 20 minutes. That's the part that makes this the hardest is how much he loves me (and my sister). He's the most athletic dog I've ever met and watching him bounce up a rocky trail or take off in a field really is impressive. I was planning on starting agility classes with him and I know he'd be amazing at it. He ... (Read More)loves swimming and will go for hours without even anything to fetch, he just likes paddling around. I've almost got him trained to sit on my kayak with me, but we're not quite there yet. He loves the car, he'll be excited for a bit then curl up and sleep. Playing with the hose is his favorite game, he'll leap and jump trying to catch the water. Once he's got a bit of energy out he's completely content curling up in the living room, as long as you're by his side. His fur looks like it'd be wirey but it's actually some of the softest fur I've petted. If you need to leave him alone once in a while he's crate trained and does completely fine in his box. Just waits for you to come home. I've been working on him a lot with leash training and he's at a point where he will not pull. He won't necessarily walk behind me the entire time, but he's not trying to pull my arm off. I've had him off leash a few times when necessary, and he does not try to run away, he just wants to be with his master. He also doesn't bark unless there's an obvious stimulus. He knows come, sit, lay down, wait, and we're working on heel and leave it. There is so much good about him but obviously I wouldn't be here if that's all there was. I'm not desperate to get rid of him and will wait until I find someone who is better for him than I am. I want that person to be completely understanding of his needs. He has severe dog aggression and we've even seen some aggression towards people from him. This seems to mainly happen when he's with my sister and I, as protective behavior. I live in a very busy area of Seattle so this isn't a problem I can manage very effectively. We're limited to letting him run around our small yard and taking short walks up and down the alleyway. That's even becoming limited now as our neighbors are beginning to get annoyed. He's enrolled in remedial dog socialization class right now and seems to be improving. I just don't think it's at a speed that my landlord will accept. What Ryder needs: He is not a family dog. Children confuse him, he's not aggressive towards them specifically but he doesn't understand that they're delicate. He would do best with a single owner. Next best would be a couple, or two owners like my sister and I did, so that he would be alone less often. Our schedules are different so he's only home alone about two days a week. He needs an owner who he will not feel the need to protect, preferably someone who's dealt with dogs like this before and can work on his aggression issues with him. He has aggression issues towards dogs he sees and walks by, but I've never actually had the chance to let him get to know one. I was told he was raised with a German Shepard. So he might be able to get used to dog brothers/sisters. It might actually be good for him. But I can in no way guarantee that this would work out. He would do better in a house that has little to no visitors. He is a guard dog by nature. He does not make friends with new people easily. It would be great if he could find a home outside the city. It doesn't necessarily have to be a picturesque farm, but he needs a yard and needs to be away from strangers, dogs, and bikes. He needs somewhere he can get out his energy without having to go in public. Most of all he needs a lot of love and someone who is willing to work with him, be with him most of the time, and appreciate him for the goofy dog that he is. While I did say he needs a yard, I do not think he would do well as an exclusively outside dog, he wants to be a companion animal and would not be happy left out in the cold at night. With work this dog will be your best friend for life. That's what I was hoping to develop with him and unfortunately it's just becoming too complicated with my landlord and neighbors. He's improved since I've had him and it really is an incredibly rewarding experience. I really do love him, hence this lengthy post. We got him neutered a few weeks after we got him. He has his vaccines. He's fully potty trained. Mostly good house manners (he'll attempt to chew some random stuff once in a while). He'll come with lots of things including but not limited to collar, prong training collar, leash, muzzle, toys, and a bag of food. Please send me any questions you may have and let me know about how you could be the right home for Ryder! (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: 15-03-20-00615Ferdinand (male)

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. THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING A VALHALLA RESCUE DOG!!! (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.

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.
