ACDs in Shelters
The dogs listed on this page are in shelters and need to find permanent homes as soon as possible.
Callie is a very sweet tempered female dog who has lived at the Smithtown, NY shelter for three of her four years. She loves to go out of the kennel, she likes getting attention from humans, she is very alert to all that is going on around her, and she is very intelligent.
Because she has lived almost her entire life in a small kennel with no behavioral training, she pulls on the leash (and she is quite strong) and sees cars as something that need herding. She's a sweet girl who deserves better than she has been given.
Callie would be best in a home with children over 10 years of age, and be best as the only pet. She would be a great fit for someone with a fenced yard who will take the time to teach her how to behave.
If interested, please e-mail the shelter at email@example.com. To confirm Callie's availability, see her Petfinder listing.
Stetson is an adult male Australian Cattle Dog. He is a good looking dog who is eager to please. He would make a great companion to a loving and active household. Stepson is neutered and up to date on vaccinations.
If interested, please call (856) 424-2288 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
To confirm Stetson's availability, see his Petfinder listing.
Jubilee is a female Australian Cattle Dog, between one and two years old. She came in with 6 puppies, four weeks old, from a South Carolina high kill shelter. All the puppies have now been adopted. Jubilee is very smart and loving, and likes to run and play. She gets along with some dogs, but may be best as an only dog.
Jubilee is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and housebroken. If interested, please contact the Animal Rescue Foundation at email@example.com or call (845) 831-5161.
To confirm Jubilee's availability, see her Petfinder listing.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Jake's ID # is 19098760.
Jess is a seven year old that is patiently waiting for that special someone. Jess is a very smart girl who knows the commands sit, down, paw and stay. She is a very affectionate and loyal when given the chance to adjust to her new surroundings. Jess can't wait to share her new home with adults and older respectful children. Other furry friends are not her cup of tea. If you are interested in adopting Jess, please fill out an adoption questionnaire and stop in with your family to meet Jess.
