Rescue Me ID: 14-08-12-00694Hickory (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

    Meet Hickory!!! This sweet girl is about 1-2 years old and weighs about 30 lbs. She is a gorgeous Heeler and was saved from a kill shelter by the border of Mexico. She gets along well with all of the other dogs at the rescue and is doing well with her crate training. She is extremely intelligent and would do well with a family that is active and likes to be outdoors. She would probably graduate at the top of her training class! She is spayed, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. We will be at the Petsmart in Madison, WI on Sept. 6th and she would love to have her forever family there ready to show her some love! She is available for ... (Read More)pre-adoption at this time and you can apply for her online at Her adoption fee is $300 and includes transportation. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-22-00332Madison (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Madison is a sweet 6 year old girl. She is very affectionate and a licker!!! She will shower you with kisses. Madison is a loyal dog that just wants to be by her family. She does exhibit some anxiety if she is confined and away from her family. She was crate trained but magically escaped by the end of each day. We started confining her to the kitchen (while at work) that has a window looking outside and she hasn't exhibited anxiety about it since. Madison currently lives with another dog, two cats and an 14 month old. She does well with 1 cat, but is interested in chasing the other ever since he hissed at her. She'd be best in a home with no ... (Read More)cats and no dogs. She also does well by herself around our son. She basically just wants to lick him. However, Madison has sibling rivalry issues with our other dog. They have been together 5 years, but have had smaller fights over food the last two years or so. We were able to manage them and enlisted an in home trainer to help. When our son came along, the fights got more intense. The arrival of our son changed the whole scenario between the two dogs. However, separately they are both fine. Madison does well at doggie daycare and greeting other dogs. We have not had a single issue outside our home. FREE IN HOME TRAINING IS INCLUDED FOR MADISON'S LIFE THROUGH BARK BUSTERS TRAINING we already purchased. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-11-00606Vinnie (male)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Puppy

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

    Vinnie is an extremely smart sweet boy. He is as healthy as a horse. The reason for rehoming is primarily that he does not get the exercise, training, and attention that an Australian Cattle Dog needs. His current home thought that they would be able to meet his needs, but they have not been able to and he needs better. He is crate trained and potty trained. He does not cry in his crate either. The only trouble he has is that he gets very excited when he sees other dogs and if he is on leash and can't run to them he barks a lot. Once he walks up to them though, he is totally fine. He is not aggressive at all, just very friendly and curious. ... (Read More)In fact if another dog doesn't respond well to his approach, he backs off and is fine. He does amazing at dog parks. He has been with other dogs in the household and does great and doesn't do this barking behavior at all. He does fine with cats, just curious, but doesn't go out of his way to find them. He picks up training very quickly and knows sit, down (lay down), wait, fetch it, go kennel, and probably a couple others. He likes to swim and play fetch, he will chase the waves. He loves fetch in the yard and that's his 'hobby'. He does jumping catches as well. He has been exposed to ducks/geese and seems to want to 'herd' them, but has never exhibited any biting behavior. He will only go to an appropriate matched home. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Dozer. I love him, however, he does not seem to love anyone else in the house. He is very high energy and has gotten territorial lately over me, his food, and his toys. He needs room to run and run and run. He needs to be able to be outside most of the time and his blue heeler instincts are sharp.. We don't own cattle but the farmer across the street does and he herded them naturally. I want him to go somewhere where he will be loved as much as I love him. Also, where he will be happy and safe.

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.

lnteresting Australian Cattle Dog Trivia Low-Cost Wisconsin 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. The Australian Cattle Dog nips at a cow's heels to keep it in line with the herd, and may apply this technique to its humans from time to time as well.
