Annie 2 - in Maine
Posted October 2021
Annie wants everyone to know that Australian Cattle Dogs aren’t just dogs, they are a lifestyle! She is affectionate and sporty and really wants to bond with her person and do ALL the fun things. We think there could be some Papillon in her family tree given her adorable floofs. She is about 9-10 months old and will stay on the smaller side, she is just about 30 lbs now.
Sweet Annie has adjusted to the crate and x-pen as part of her house training adventures and has not had one accident with her Maine foster. She has a good recall and will sit pretty for treats. She is food and toy motivated and would thrive with a family who has herding dog experience, and some training classes for smart and busy dogs. As a youngster, she has a lot to learn, and really wants to, and would likely do well in any dog sport.
True to her ACD instincts, she is an ankle biter when she gets excited. She has really good bite inhibition but the little nipper will be too much for young humans. She has shown some resource guarding with food but can also take treats sitting with another dog without getting snarky. She will need work on her leash skills as well as how to be polite when she sees other dogs. When she was with her southern foster she lived with chickens that were fenced in away from the dogs and she did fine but has not been tested with cats. She does well with other dogs and may enjoy having a similarly playful, energetic canine buddy.
If you are interested in adopting this lovebug or any of our sweeties please fill out our application.
Please note: we do not have a physical location where the dogs are housed. They are cared for within our wonderful network of foster families throughout New England. Our expectation is that, once approved through the rescue, a potential family will meet the dog in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
Thank you for considering rescue!
