Rescue Me ID: 16-07-20-00578Dash (male)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Young Adult

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

    Dash is an approx 3 year old Blue Heeler that came into our family in April, 2016. He is neutered, up to date on all of his vaccines and yearly tests (Rabies, Distemper/Parvo/Lepto, Lyme, Bordetella, Heartworm/Tick Disease Panel, and Fecal) and micro chipped. Dash enjoys being around people and does well with most other dogs, with proper introduction. Dash is 100% housebroken and is not a chewer at all. He is a bit less active than most heelers I have known and loves to lounge when given the chance, but he is still a heeler, so more active than a lot of other dogs. He thinks he is a lap dog, and usually doesn't know where his personal space ... (Read More)ends and yours begins. He is very much an in your face for attention type of dog. He loves to sit on the couch with you, and sleep next to you on your bed. Dash was diagnosed with Lyme Disease (I had him tested as soon as I got him), but is asymptomatic and was treated with a 28 day course of antibiotics. He really is a wonderful, cuddly, and loving dog. Why are we getting rid of him then? Well, unfortunately the few cons he does have are not ones we can have in our home. Dash really needs to go to a home with no kids and no small animals. We have both. He obviously had not been around many other types of animals when we got him, so has no idea what to do with his herding heeler instinct. He has a very high prey drive, making him unsafe around your small animals. He also doesn't understand how to act around large animals, and is constantly charging the fence trying to bite the faces of our bigger livestock. He does fine with most other dogs, but can not be trusted around other types of animals. We have had heelers in the past, so understand (and fully expected) that he would nip at your heels if you walk by too fast, or nips at strangers hands when they first come into our house. We have worked with him and really thought that he was making great progress. Then he bit our almost 3 year old daughter. We honestly never expected that because from day 1 he was great with her, and really bonded to her. We always watched them carefully, never left them alone, and she understood that she doesn't run in the house when Dash is inside. She was sitting at her Little Tikes table in our kitchen eating a snack one day, and the 2 dogs were (as always) waiting for dropped pretzel sticks. My sister was watching our daughter that day and had her back turned while at the sink, only about 5 feet away. She said she heard a slight growl, and then our daughter started to cry. Dash had bitten her. Thankfully it was only a tiny scrape that barely broke the skin, but he had bitten her right on her face while she was sitting quietly in a chair. Our daughter is not a rambunctious kid, she is calm and always very good around all of our animals. I know she didn't do the typical pull his ears or poke his eyes that most toddlers do. About 3 days ago we found out that we are expecting another child in March. I don't feel like I can risk having a dog with such high prey drive in our home when we have an infant/crawler/new walker in our home. It is with a heavy heart that I make the decision to rehome him, but I think it would be best for him and for us. Dash would be a great companion for someone with another dog, but no small animals or children. He also needs a home that has had and understands Heelers and their quirks. He also needs a fenced in yard as he is a runner. He rarely escapes our yard, but when he does he covers a lot of ground before we find him. Dash will stay in our home until we can find the perfect place for him. I don't want him to go to a shelter, that's just no place for a Heeler. Please contact me with any other questions. (Less)

    This is Branson, he's an older dog about 10 years, but has the heart of a pup. He loves to play fetch and all things squeaky. You would never think he's 10, definitely a lot of years ahead of him. He gets along well with other dogs and is UTD on his shots. He's very shy and scared at first but doesn't take long for him to trust you. Contact Kelly at 847-207-8233 if you're interested in meeting this young-at-heart gentleman!

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.
