Mochi is an 11  year old, 45 lb. neutered male in Hamden, CT.

Mochi is a male cattle dog, approximately 11 years old, 45 lbs. We are located in Southern Connecticut, but will be relocating to Northern California at the end of the year. We would ideally find him a home in the tri-state area, but would consider transporting him to CA for the right fit. We would like to meet his adopters to make sure it is a good situation for him.

He is very mellow, but enjoys playing and going for walks and hikes. He loves to cuddle and is a typical "velcro" heeler. He is well trained, knows a variety of "tricks" (sit pretty, paw, spin, roll over). He learns very quickly. He just went to the vet and got a clean bill of health. He loves belly rubs and is never shy to ask for pets. He is extremely food motivated, which makes training easy. He is very photogenic: see his instagram for more shots! https://www.instagram.com/mochi_the_heeler/

Since our son was born last year, he has been very unhappy and anxious. He cries whenever we play with our son, and paces and tries to get in between us. For this reason, and due to a couple of nips to our son (never broken the skin, but we no longer feel comfortable with them together). This is why we sadly would like to explore finding him a new home.

Mochi needs time to warm up to new people and strangers, as he can be protective. Mochi's ideal home would be with someone who understands cattle dogs, and is committed to helping him work through some of his anxieties. Ideally, there would not be small children in his new home. He loves other dogs and gets along fine with cats. He is great off leash and has excellent recall.

We really love Mochi and want to find him a wonderful situation where he can get the care and attention he deserves.
