Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler (medium coat). Panda, 3 yr., neutered, Aussie/Queensland 3 years old. Panda was surrendered by his owner, who didn't have the time to exercise him properly. It's apparent, Panda could lose a few pounds to be his best self. Panda spent a few days in the shelter, but his owner couldn't stand the thought of him there, found me, and pulled him out of the shelter to bring him here. In the mean time, Panda passed his shelter evaluation no problem. This guy is great with other dogs. He lived with a baby in the home. He is totally sweet and a nice dog. His owner brought him here, off leash and Panda is a very obedient and quiet dog. He knows commands. We'll get him out on a pack hike and add photos to his album. He probably won't be here long.

More About Australian Shepherd Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler (short coat). Dottie, 3 yr., spayed, blind, Australian Cattle Dog Another great dog from Ventura Animal Care Center. And they really did care for Dottie. Then they found me... Dottie is three years old, gorgeous, pure bred cattle dog, and she is blind. Dottie was first shown to me wearing a "halo" donated by Muffin's Halo For Blind Dogs. Helps her tap into things rather than bump into. I'd never seen one. Great idea. However, she is phenomenal on her own. Just have to sort of lead her around if I move something, and unfortunately I'm doing some remodeling, so Dottie has to deal with furniture there one day, and not the next. Dottie figures it out! First day here she was in the yard with the pack all day. I let her in the smaller yard w/access to the dog door, so she could eat and go into a straw filled dogloo if she wanted. Next thing I heard was the dog door. She was in the house. And she has been ever since. I took it in stride, congratulated her and led her to the Kuranda bed she would have to sleep on if she wanted to stay inside. Went out to dinner, and when I returned, there she still was. Now she is in and out at will. I tried bringing her food bowl to her, but she likes eating from the communal feeder outside. She's a normal dog. Somehow, she does see. Dottie was not connecting with me at first. Indifferent. I bribed her with chicken and everything I could think of... She had this harness on, and I thought it was kind of tight around her rib cage. She had been wearing it since she got here, 3 or 4 days, and I decided to take it off. Soon as I released that clip around her torso, she jumped up, licked me in the face, spun around, tail wagging! She was so happy! She was just not comfortable! She is now cruising around with a light lead hanging from a collar so I can guide if needed. This dog is nothing short of AMAZING! She jumped on my extra tall bed for Pete sake! Obviously not a dog you want the kids hanging off of. Although she has never opened her mouth in protest, she startles sometimes, I mean, she can't see you reaching out to touch her. Dottie would definitely be fine around any other animals. She is a great companion and will make someone a wonderful friend for the rest of her life.

      Breed: Mutt

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Cody, 4 yr., neutered, Cattle dog mix Cody is about 4. Looks like a cattle dog mix, maybe some border collie, he has pretty white socks and a white beacon tail tip. But who knows. He was a "stray" and been living in Placer County, animal services. His time was up. Obviously not a good candidate to be in the shelter. Cody freaked. He is a sensitive dog and constant barking, smell of panic and fear, the hopelessness of every day... with no one to trust Cody shut down. He was assigned 3 handlers in his time there and became bonded with each of them. Being vested in him, Brittany, one of his handlers, brought him the 5 hours to me. However when he got here, he really had no issues. Allowed me to handle him, warily, but easily. He followed me into the yard. Uncertain of all the dogs behind the fence. It's trial by fire here... sorry Cody. Into the small chain link airlock, one gate separated him from the pack. And once the gate closed behind us, I removed his lead, opened up the gate separating us from the dogs, and he was descended upon by a pack. Cody didn't freak, he was standoffish and air snapped, just to warn, and they gave him his space. I watched peripherally while doing my chores, ignoring Cody, while he got the lay of the land. Inspected kennel runs with open gates, all the feeders and located the watering stations. And sniffed and was sniffed by dogs. All very appropriate. He chilled in the big yard with the pack, and initiated play with the grumpiest of all of them! He and Dottie appear to be friends now. He has no issues with male or female dogs, as long as they have manners, and here, they do. Cody had been deemed unsocial with dogs at the shelter and was also said to be incredibly shy, although never aggressive with people. He flattened on leash walking by humans and other dogs. I've observed none of this. Obviously, he was not at all comfortable in the shelter. I'm so sorry he was there for the last 4 months... he would never have shown his real self to a potential adopter while there. This was his last chance. And this handsome boy has lots of opportunity for good placement. He is highly adoptable. It's clear, he missed out on dog socialization early in his life. But he has very naturally fit in, and I can leave him unsupervised with the pack. He definitely prefers this to his days of being kenneled! He's on regular on pack hikes now. OFF leash! I left a long line dragging, graduated him to a 4 foot light lead, and now, he's wearing only a collar. He comes to me on command, or by way of my coaches whistle. Very smart, obedient, and loyal. Cody was in need of a blast off, and he gets that now, every day, for an hour or 2. He is a joy to watch running free. I know this dog was going kennel crazy. He's turned out to be a well balanced and normal dog, who just needed a chance.

      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler (short coat). Nina, 8 yr., spayed, Australian Cattle Dog mix Nina urgently needs her own home and family!! Through no fault of her own, Nina has spent too much time in and out of fosters and shelters. Her savior has rescued her a couple of different times and is currently paying to have her in a home but she can’t continue and Nina deserves a forever home. She is currently located in Burbank. Here’s what her sponsors have to say about her: Nina is a 7-8 year old, female Australian Cattle Dog mix (50 lbs.). She is a very sweet girl and is friendly to people of all ages. Nina is very intelligent and knows all basic commands. She loves walks, hikes, car rides, or just being at home with family. She loves children & lived in a home with children for 5 years, so she would do great with a family, or just one person. She will bark at cats so desires a home without them. Because Nina has been shuffled around so much, she may be nervous if left alone for long periods of time. She will do best with someone who is home most of the time. Nina is a happy and loving girl and will make someone a great companion. Are you that person?
