Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Catahoula Leopard Dog. 2 yr., neutered, Cattle Dog /Catahoula Say 'hi' to Ted... quietly, he's nervous! Ted came here with his sister/mother, who knows, Tessa from the small Orange Cove Shelter. Sometimes you wish you knew a dog's story. How could they be SO messed up?! Ted is one of those dogs. He's fearful and under socialized. Been working with him, and experience has proven that they are all reachable. The kind of progress I'm grateful for, he sniffs other dogs, comes in to sleep on a dog bed of his own volition, housebroken, not terrified of me anymore, eats grass on walks... walks on a leash. I can touch him... I'm tellin' ya, it's the little things that are enormous with some of these guys! Ted needs a special adopter, one who might understand what Ted is going through. He could just be left alone to exist, but I would love to see him with someone that would touch him every day, take him on walks, expose him to things. This is when I've seen the most improvements. Exposure to everything! Immersion. Was a huge deal to even force him to sleep in a dog bed next to me! Once he did for a few days, he expected it! Routine is key! Dogs are incredible, you can reach them through routine. Still working and he has all the time he needs...

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.
Breed Group: Unspecified
Country of Origin: Unknown

More About Mutt 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 / Mixed (short coat). Cheyenne , 2 - 3 yr., spayed, Queensland/Short Hair Pointer mix Cheyenne came into the Visalia shelter with 3 other dogs. None of them socialized. The video I saw showed a lying down dog, frozen, while a shelter volunteer stroked her. Said a lot to me. I was able to take her, and the one that was glued to her side, Strawberry I call her. They flat couldn't handle the noise and environment of the shelter, and wouldn't have been seen by the public. The rescue coordinator reached out to me, and literally saved their lives. To get them here, there was a lot of handling going on. Getting them spayed, putting them on and taking them off a plane, new people, and dressing them in the gear they wore for a short time. Neither reacted or even tried to protest. I like that! They are very respectful of humans. Cheyenne is about 2-3 yrs old. She allowed Strawberry to cling to her. But since coming here, they have both branched out and become part of a pack. Made new dog friends, and very social. Cheyenne is wonderful with other dogs. Zero aggression, and completely respectful of people. She is timid. But I love her. Easy to put a collar and harness on, and this way, easy walking, less pressure on neck or body by alternating pressure. Cheyenne started walking on leash. Was a rough start compared to Strawberry, who is already off leash, and stays by my side, like a well heeled dog. And now... what has transpired with Cheyenne; and this was amazing. Cheyenne is now completely off leash too! STORY: I have been walking Cheyenne on leash for a month. She knows the routine, so allows me to nudge her from her dog house, she loads into the van by herself, but always has a leash dragging ready for me to pick up. This day, we were walking by the van, sort of doubling back, and she did what was expected and hopped in. I was working with a new dog, so I thought, I would give Cheyenne and me a break, and focus on the newbie. She stayed in the van under the seat, and she knows the trail well by now, so here we go. Leap of faith and I left her there with the van doors open. We were up at the top of the mountain, when I saw a flash of grey, it was Cheyenne! She was zooming by me, looking the happiest I have ever seen her! She went to Strawberry who was ecstatic and initiated play and they zoomed around together. Then I got down low and called Cheyenne to me, and she walked up. I reached over to her chest and unclipped the leash that I clung to always, but was now dragging. It was on! She played and ran and was a different dog than the one that came here a few months ago! New photos are showing who this dog really is! She is ready to be seen. Decompressing at Central Coast Herding Dog Rescue and Spa! Cheyenne and Strawberry could be adopted together, they certainly get along beautifully, but chances are, that can't happen, that's fine. They have shown how adaptable they are. Both are completely dog social. No aggression whatsoever with other dogs.

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Border Collie (short coat). Netty, 1 yr., spayed, Cattle Dog/Border Collie mix About 1 year old. She's a Border Collie/Cattle dog mix. Very sweet girl. Netty is housebroken and has been really great indoors. She should be an indoor/outdoor dog. We're learning to trust as far as the off leash stuff goes. She's dragging one, as of her first walk, but I think she'll be off by her second. Netty is very lean and athletic, but no bones showing. She'll probably fill out as she gets older. Right now, she's a sweet and uncomplicated pup. And doing well here. I have owner surrender paperwork, so Netty has not been in the shelter. More coming to flesh out this bio, but, we have a lot of dogs to focus on right now. Netty is pretty easy. She is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped.

      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.

Normal, happy, social and inquisitive, young dog. She's about 1 year or less. She's easy as can be. Echo doesn't let me out of her sight, and she's just fine off a leash, so we all have a good time. She doesn't jump in the van on her own yet, but no issue grabbing her when we're ready to go. We started hand commands, come, and not to jump up, so far. She's super smart. And since she already stays close, there's not much schooling to do.

      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Faith, 1 yr., spayed, Cattle Dog mix Got Faith? We do! Faith has done a 180! She's a dog! A very sweet and affectionate dog. She's fine around cats and kids as long as they aren't too wild and crazy as she's just getting the hang of this people stuff. And ready to be adopted! She did her duty, raised her puppies and it is her time! Here's her story! 9/27/17 No need to date updates after this. She is off leash., Follows me like she has done it her whole life. In and out of the van on her own. She's a tad shy, but for what she's been through and how quickly Faith has come along, she is at warp speed. 9/23/17 She's on one leash now...soon, she'll be off entirely. She comes to her name and licks my chin. 9/22/17 Her first Pack walk. Very sweet, I can touch her and lift her with no concerns of being nipped. She walks by my side like a dog who's knows how to heel. Slack leash and easy. She's coming along at an accelerated rate! 9/21/17 Faith has been dutifully raising her puppies, since she arrived, July 12th 2017. It's changing seasons now... and it's time for Faith to shine. Here's her history: Faith came from a small little known shelter, Orange Cove. Zero foot traffic. I had plans to get her out, and was dependent on transportation but she was pretty far along in her pregnancy. Maybe the transport was traumatic, maybe it was time, she had 2 pups on her way to me, and 5 more during the day. Since then, it's been all about raising healthy pups. Now all are adopted into loving homes and on track to be spayed and neutered. Time to get hands on Faith. She is a feral dog. Probably never been on a leash, or worn a collar or harness. She's wearing all and 2 leashes now. She's fine. And after about 1/2 an hr of working with her on a leash, I got her transferred to a nice kennel run where she can see and socialize with other dogs (that don't just want her for milk), and I can see, she's already relaxing! Are you the special person/family for this sweetheart that deserves the best home possible?

      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?
