ACDs in Shelters
The dogs listed on this page are in shelters and need to find permanent homes as soon as possible.
Peppy is a two year old red male Australian Cattle Dog, that came to the shelter as a stray. He was evaluated by an ACDRA volunteer and found to be highly adoptable. He is friendly, affectionate, gentle, and good with people and other dogs. He will need exercise and a job to do. He would do well in an ACD experienced home. Peppy just wants to be with his person, and will make a wonderful companion animal.
Notes from the evaluator: Peppy insisted on putting his front paws, legs and head in my lap, give me kisses. If I was sitting on the ground he would have put his whole body in my lap. I tried pushing him off and he would happily bounce back up and give me more kisses, after the third time telling him no and off, he walked away to play with a toy a bit.
He greets everyone with a hug. He likes jumping up to greet people, he is gentle but would knock over a child or elderly person. A lot of dogs were being walked by as we were outside and he was very focused on them, usually bark whining at them as they passed by. His tail was wagging the whole time and relaxed. Hackles did not go up at all and his body was never stiff.
He is a medium energy dog, that needs exercise, physically and mentally, but can be easily managed. I would take him home myself if I could. He is fully vetted, neutered, and micro chipped.
If interested, please contact Ashley.email@example.com or call (845) 452-7722 x5.

Remmington is an approximately 6-7 year old neutered male looking for a better life. He was turned over to the county shelter by is owners. He is used to having a female cattle dog companion, and loves to play.

Lucky is an approximately 7 -8 year old male Australian Cattle Dog, available for adoption. He is an extremely handsome dog with gorgeous markings and a full bushy tail, that came to the northeast from a southern shelter. Lucky was evaluated by an ACD rescue volunteer and was found to have no aggression and passed every test. He is good with other dogs and is slowly learning to become a "love bug", and respond to, and seek out affection.
Lucky has been a bit shut down in the shelter environment but is now responding well to the wonderful care he is receiving and is slowly coming out of his shell. He would do well in an ACD experienced home with plenty of exercise and the opportunity to bond with his owner in a quieter environment. He will be a wonderful companion dog and make someone happy. The possibilities for Lucky are endless, given the right setting. Could you be the special someone to help Lucky reach his potential?

Hi my name is Gemma, and I am a 2 year old ACD who was brought in as a stray. It's obvious someone has spent some time with me, as I am sweet as can be and walk wonderfully on a leash. I am dog selective, but LOVE all people and want nothing more than to be the center of attention in someone's life. You will never meet someone happier to welcome you home, if you just give me the chance!! I am at high risk in my shelter right now, due to maximum capacity and low summer adoption rates. Please give me a chance to be the best companion you'll ever know.
For more information call (662)-801-6788 or email OLHSadoptions@gmail.com

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.

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.
