WE MATCH YOU WITH THE RIGHT DOG
FOR THE LIFE YOU LEAD.
ACDs are smart and energetic so they require something to do to keep them happy and balanced. While the breed was developed to drive cattle, these days ACDs can direct their intelligence and energy toward catching Frisbees, performing agility, or being a running partner. ACDs are often seen mixing it up at dog parks, hiking in the woods with their people, and enjoying a dip in the family pool.
Because all our foster dogs live with our volunteers, you will get an accurate assessment of the dog’s energy level, personality, likes and dislikes, behavior with children and other dogs, and more.
Puppies and young ACDs are known for having boundless energy. And as you can see from the photo above – being wildly irresistable! They can be wonderful pets for active families with time to devote to training and play.
An adult ACD, while still energetic, will not require as much training as a puppy. But an adult will still require physical and mental activity on a daily basis.
A senior ACD will be a loyal and loving companion to share the couch when you watch TV or join you on a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood. Rescuing a senior is an act of compassion that offers a wealth of loving rewards from a very grateful dog.
The first step is to review our available dogs on our Foster Dogs page. Next, submit your application to adopt. The dog's foster home will be in touch with you within 72 hours.
