ACDs in Shelters
The dogs listed on this page are in shelters and need to find permanent homes as soon as possible.
Sophie is a beautiful Red Australian Cattle Dog, who lived with a single man for eight years until he passed away. She just sits in the kennel and people seem to overlook her. Family members didn't want to take her in because she needs to be the only pet. She is however very affectionate towards humans. You can tell that right away, and she is quick to show her love for attention. The shelter staff is very fond of her.
Sophie is really sweet, and would make a senior a great companion dog. If interested, please call (609) 465-8923 or e-mail email@example.com.

This beautiful chocolate Cattle dog mix is Jessie. She came in as a stray but is microchipped. We were able to talk to her first owner. She is unable to take her back but she let us know some important information about her.
Jessie will be 2 years old this fall. She is housebroken and would be a great family pet with kids 10 and up. Jessie loves people so much that she isn't willing to share them with any other animals. Jessie enjoys long walks and belly rubs. If you are able to have her as your one and only please stop by to visit her. We are open Wednesday thru Saturday from Noon to 4:30.

Sissy is approximately 2 years old. She has had at least one litter of pups. She was found with her pups on a strip mine in our area. All the pups are now spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and in good homes. Sissy tested positive for heartworms, has been through the heartworm treatments and she is now heartworm negative! She is also spayed, utd on shots and microchipped. We know for sure she is not good with cats as she did attack one (the cat is OK!). She gets very upset when she sees a small dog too, but we have never had her with small dogs. She does OK with medium to large dogs, but is the alpha. She is very smart and loving. She loves to play and is very trainable. She kenneled outside, but I don't think housebreaking would be difficult. She has been crated but only for transporting or at local adoption events. She rides well in the car when not crated. Interested adopters must complete an application. Her adoption fee is $125. We would also consider her going to the rescue if there is room. All we want for Sissy is a good home, which is very difficult to find in our region of southwest Virginia. We are seeing more and more owner release pets to our shelter and it is a kill shelter.
Fusion, young male Cattle Dog mix, has a high level of energy and intelligence and would make a great agility dog. He may be happiest as an only pet. The volunteers are having a great time training with him. If interested, please e-mail Potsdamhumanesociety@verizon.net or call (315) 265-3199.
To confirm Fusion's availability, see his Petfinder page.
Lamarr is a unique looking Australian Cattle Dog mix. He is sweet to people he knows, but would also make a good watch dog for those he does not. He would probably be best at a quieter home setting or working farm and a home without small children.
To find out more about Lamarr, email the shelter or call (570) 356-2387.

Hello! I'm Sophie! I am at the shelter because my dad has fallen ill. It's been hard on me because I only lived with him for 8 years! None of the other family members want. I think it's because I don't want to live with other animals. I'm very affectionate towards humans. You will be able to tell that right away because I promise I will be a quick to show my love for the attention. I may be older but I still have a lot of spunk left in me. Come by and play with me. It will be the best decision ever!
Sophie is spayed, up to date on shots, and house trained.
