Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Buttons is an extremely loved dog. She is wonderful with those she considers dominant members of the pack, but is aggressive with children, strangers, and other animals. We do not want to euthanize her, but can't keep her as she's been aggressive with our son one too many times. She has bitten, but breaks skin and doesn't try to inflict more harm. Please help. We don't want to kill our baby and hope there's a better fit that will love her as much as we do.

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-11-00263Dozer (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Children must be 12 years or older Yahoo, my name is Dozer and I cannot wait to meet you. I originally came to Washington County HS in Slinger, WI from an over-crowded shelter in Mississippi and although the cold is tough on a pup's paws I love the snowfalls. A wonderful family fell in love with me and took me home. I was making progress on my house-training, about three-quarters the way there, being comfortable in a crate, was getting exercise and started some training but I had dog roommates and it just wasn't working out. I learned that I do not like to live with other dogs; I want my people all to myself. Therefore, I must be the only ... (Read More)dog in the home; I like to be the king of the castle and have all of the attention. I also cannot share a home with any cats because they are way too much fun to chase and torment; I would be relentless. Any children in my new home must be 12 years or older so that they can join in with my training. I tend to guard my food bowl and also need calm, assertive owners who will help me be the best dog I can be. My new family must have experience with dogs of my breed. Cattle dogs are intelligent and adventurous souls who are meant to work independently. That means that we can exhibit some behavior challenges because we think we know better. I have been described as friendly, playful and tolerant but they also say I am stubborn and like to do things on my terms. That is why I need an owner who understands the challenges a herding dog can present. I am super smart, very trainable and I just know I can be a stupendous community member with your help; I think I would also be a spectacular candidate for lots of other training. I LOVE squeaky toys, they draw me like a magnet. I have discovered that I am quite the surgeon and can remove the squeaker in record speed. I weigh about 50 pounds right now but I am just a pup so I do plan on getting bigger. I am an active boy and will need structure, discipline and exercise every day. Brain games and mental challenges will help keep my mind busy, too. I am a confident little pup who is ready to take on this world with gusto. Stop by to meet me in person and see how electrifying I am. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-01-19-00425Angel (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Puppy

    Hi everyone, my name is Angel and I'm a sassy 14week old, 18 lb Chihuahua/ Heeler mix. Since I'm just a puppy, all I really want to do is play, play and play some more. I love chewing on bones, raiding the toy box and wrestling. I also enjoy taking naps in the sunlight. I do like to go outside and play chase with my big foster brothers, I'm pretty fast and I do a lot of zoomies. I am doing really well with potty training, you just have to watch for my cues which is typically me sitting by the door. I am learning to ring the bell to go out. I do love to snuggle, give kisses and get belly rubs. I've adjusted to sleeping and staying in my crate ... (Read More)when needed. I get along great with big dogs, little dogs and cats. I also love kids especially if they share their toys with me. I am extremely food motivated so training shouldn't be an issue. I would make a wonderful family dog. I am currently being fostered in Tomah, WI and my fee is $300 (with a separate $100 deposit check that is shredded with proof of completion of spay/neuter) that includes age appropriate vaccinations at the time of adoption, microchip and health certificate. Please apply for me at or on FB (403644-DS) (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Young Adult

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

    ** PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE HAVE AN ADOPTION RADIUS OF 100 MILES FROM OUR FACILITY IN NEW RICHMOND, WI. ** Benjamin is a male 2-yr. old Australian Cattle Dog. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and is micro-chipped. Benjamin (Benji) came to us from the euthanasia list of a shelter in the Twin Cities. The only historical information we have on Benjamin is that he lost his home and was quickly deteriorating at the shelter - he was afraid, nervous and was showing signs of stress which often happens to animals placed in those types of situations. Here with us, Benjamin has been able to run free in our outdoor runs and has had plenty ... (Read More)of handling by our volunteer staff and he is doing wonderfully well. He does well on a leash, as you can see and loves to go for walks. We are hopeful that Benjamin will find his forever home real soon - could you be his match? Why not stop in and meet Benjamin and see if perhaps you are! BEFORE CONTACTING US REGARDING BENJAMIN, PLEASE REVIEW OUR ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Cattle Dog in Wisconsin
    Australian Cattle Dogs can make good pets in Wisconsin 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.
