ACDs in Shelters
The dogs listed on this page are in shelters and need to find permanent homes as soon as possible.
Syd is a handsome, 3 year old male Australian Cattle Dog, who is loyal and loving and deserves another chance. He was returned to the shelter because he was over protective of his owner. Syd would do best as the only pet in a quiet household, with a special person who understands the breed and can work with him. If you are interested, please call the shelter at (302) 856-6361 or e-mail Joanne@delspca.org. Syd's ID # is 241.
To confirm Syd's availability, see his Petfinder listing.

Finn is a handsome male Cattle Dog, who needs an ACD experienced home that would know how to channel his energies. He would also benefit from some basic training, and someone that has to the time to spend with him. It would be well worth the effort!

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.

Rocco, a two year old male Australian Cattle Dog, is a sweet dog that is getting tired of being in the kennel. Rocco loves other dogs, and is very playful and happy, but he doesn’t seem to know he’s not a Chihuahua! The shelter describes his personality as dominant. He knows all his basic commands: sit, come, down, stay, off, leave it, focus, touch, and heel. He also knows to sit and wait in front of the door until you’ve released him to go through it. These will all need to be worked on with him in a home. He loves to go for walks but doesn’t like to be put back in the kennel when they are over.
Due to his high energy level, Rocco would do best in a home without young kids. If interested in adopting this intelligent dog, please e-mail the shelter at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (908) 859-3060.
To confirm Rocco's availability, see his Petfinder listing.
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.

Jake, 2 yr. old Australian Cattle Dog was brought to the shelter in Independence, MO after his owner threatened to shot him after he inflicted a minor bite on the neighbor’s dog. Jake was initially very scared at the shelter, which is a common response of the herding breeds to the chaos in this type of environment. With the attention and care of a wonderful volunteer and the shelter staff, Jake has acclimated well to life there and become a favorite of the people who work with him. Our trainer is so impressed with Jake that he would like to have him as his own dog! Because of his breed and herding tendencies, Jake would probably do best around medium to large sized dogs and older children. Because of his intelligence, need for exercise, and desire to gain attention and affection, Jake would probably fit in well with an active family who included him in their activities or did agility or herding classes with him. A wonderful local rescue fell in love with this boy, but does not have a foster home for him. They are willing to pull Jake from the shelter if a qualified adopter can be found for him. Jake is sponsored for $75 to any good rescue who will pull him to safety from the shelter!!Please help us get this great pup out of the shelter and into the appropriate, loving and forever home he desperately needs and deserves now!! Also, transport is available!
TRAINER EVALUATION: He's a good dog, beautiful dog . He's a little bit nervous and maybe some fear at first. He warms up pretty quickly and becomes attached to you. He definitely wants to be loved and petted. This is very intelligent dog and he needs a lot of mental stimulation, exercise, and interaction. A place like this kennel is just going to drive this dog crazy as this is a very smart dog. Very mindful,won't need much obedience or manners training, just needs a good home. I'd love this dog for myself.
Please contact: KiKi ASAP @ (573) 268-3975 or Peggy at email@example.com. Jake's ID # is 19098760.
