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.

      Posted Breed: Australian Kelpie / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Doogie, 1 yr., neutered, Kelpie/Queensland Heeler Kelpie and Queensland Heeler, what a soft, sweet dog!! He was brought in at night, new places, always stranger in the dark... Doogie was apprehensive for a minute, and decided to bond with me instantly. He's that kind of dog. His finder would have loved to keep him, but he had a couple dogs and it was a rough crowd for Doogie. So here he is in the land of herding dogs. Doogie is turn key. He was someone's dog for sure, and he is gifted with a beautiful temperament and soft disposition. This was the bio provided: "This darling guy is Doogie. He has a docked tail. Doogie is about 1 year old and just a great guy. He was found by a Good Samaritan who wishes that he could keep him, but his own dog isn’t welcoming a new pal. Doogie is great with everyone he meets. He learns really quickly, too. He would love an active home to take him on adventures and teach him more. He loves the leash and will benefit from more exercise and some guidance He is nice with all of the people he has met. We think he would be good with kids. Doogie is a super sweet guy, too. He loves to cuddle and is such a love. He will be an amazing best friend. Doogie is housebroken." So I am back, and can attest, Doogie is using my dog door, and puts his paws on my laundry table to nose his leash and harness! He LOVES his gear! Like he knows he gets to go if he has it on. Spent the weekend at the lake, no fence, no containment at all. He is so solid! Stays so close to me. At first, nervous and anxious about so many dogs! But, I think it was a little rough for him at the fosters, with the pit bulls... it's a herding dog thing. Once he realized, this pack didn't want to mess with him, if he wasn't interested in playing, he got curious and joined in. He is a pack guy now. Doogie is great. He really is...

      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: McNab / Australian Kelpie / Mixed (short coat). Bear, neutered, 1 yr., McNab/Kelpie cross He's sort of like a bear... stocky, and super thick, soft beautiful black fur, with a white, white chest and paws. Bear has a naturally bobbed tail... he looks like a McNab, maybe Kelpie mix? I don't know, but he is for sure the nicest dog in the world. Bear has not raised an eyebrow at any of the other dogs since he got here. He went right of leash (I let it drag for a few minutes) and on his first pack walk just an hour after getting here from the shelter today. He had a blast! He ran his energy off, had so much fun with the other herders. Now, he's just chilling, happy as can be. Oh, want to have fun? Add Bear, and water. He is a crazy good swimmer and loves the water. Dove in on his own before I even got there. Bear didn't come with an age ID. He was an owned dog. And his homes was on the street. Bear was impounded a couple times. First time, his owner almost came to blows with the county shelter director over his dog. The second time, for one reason or another, Bear's owner didn't come for him. He is safe and will stay here until a lucky human scoops him up. Awesome dog!

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.

Flown in by Pilot Dolphyn John! Thank you Lone Ranger, And Pilots N Paws!! I believe they are mother and daughter. Came from Visalia Animal Service. They couldn't handle the noise and environment there, and wouldn't have been seen by the public. Tracy reached out to me, and saved their lives. The Grey and white, mom - about 2-3, Red, daughter - about 1. They are sticking close together right now. They are pretty timid. But I love them. Easy to put collars and harness on, and this way, easy walking, less pressure on neck or body and I can alternate pressure. They'll both be walking on leash within a week. There was a lot of handling going on with putting them on and taking them off the plane, and dressing them in the gear they'll be wearing for a short time. Neither reacted or even tried to protest. I like that! They are very respectful of humans. These ladies will be ready to be seen shortly. Right now, they can decompress at Central Coast Herding Dog Rescue and Spa! The ideal situation would be for these two to be adopted together but if that's not meant to be they will go to separate homes. In the meantime, while they are decompressing, we are accepting applications and will contact applicants as soon as the ladies are ready to greet people. Could that be you?

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?

He is very smart, quite strong and athletic, and has a big cuddly marshmallow personality. Dex is a bit of a velcro dog, he wants to be where his person is as much as possible, preferably in their lap lol! Dex is not for a home with small children, he's can be a big goofball and might knock them over by being too friendly. He would do great with someone who loves outdoor exercise and activities, and is either home a lot or would be able to take Dex along with them. Dex, like all working dog breeds, is a dog that needs exercise and stimulation, and really thrives when he gets it. He is interested in other dogs, but needs to be introduced properly. Dex is completely housetrained and crate trained, he will run right into his crate when told to, but prefers just laying near to wherever his human is. If you’re looking for an active, devoted, and cuddly companion, Dex is the one for you! He is being fostered in Huntington Beach.
