Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Pepper is an Australian cattle dog, Boston terrier mix, who needs a loving and patient home. She loves obedience classes and has been easy to train- and great at tricks! She is also good with kids- and loves playing with our two young boys. At the end of the day she loves nothing more than curling up beside us for a cuddle. She is funny and quirky with lots of personality- and we love all these great things about her. Unfortunately, she also has a few issues that our busy family is having a hard time dealing with. We brought her into our family when she was 8 months old- and we think she was not socialized as a puppy. Pepper exhibits ... (Read More)reactive behaviours- she is often nervous of new people. As a result she will run and bark aggressively at them- and it is hard to get her to stop. She hasn't done more than bark at anyone, it just looks intimidating. Additionally, she loves playing with other dogs but at times gets very boisterous with her playing, it can be tough to get her to tone it down. I believe with consistent work these behaviours could be reduced. She has been to a reactive rover class that provided techniques for dealing with these behaviours and we have seen progress- however, we are finding her training, working full time and taking care of young children overwhelming. She is a medium to high energy dog- and requires daily exercise. Is good on walks, playing fetch or tug- of- war, and if you have a safe place for her to run- she loves to run (and is good about staying close to her person). If you are looking for a loyal, smart and loving friend, then please consider Pepper. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Cattle Dog in Canada
    Australian Cattle Dogs can make good pets in Canada 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 Canada Fact Sheet
    Australian Cattle Dogs were bred by 19th century Australian pioneers to herd cattle on large ranches. Australian Cattle Dogs are excellent at catching frisbees. 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. Australian Cattle Dogs are descended from several different breeds, including Dalmatians and Smithfield Collies, which are now thought to be extinct.
