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.

Freida was news to me! Ever heard of an Ausky?! I had not. She's a cross, a pure bred hybrid, ok, that doesn't make sense. But I guess it's another one... Australian Cattle Dog/ Siberian Husky. What a trip! At 2 years old, coming in from Riverside County Shelter, Frieda is an absolute sweetie with humans. And on the bossy side with dogs. She's been trying to control the water bowl. So there is some resource guarding. But besides that, she a pretty good little pack dog... well, at 50 lbs, not so little. So there you have it, name, age, weight, temperament, origins, and breed.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: McNab / Mixed (short coat). Addy, 1 yr., spayed, McNab mix Addy is one year old. And always a loved dog. She's not been in the shelter. Her owner is very ill and has no way to care for or insure her future. Addy appears to be a young McNab and Pharoah Hound mix. She is tall, with a long neck. Very regal and agile! Addy can leap vertically in the air, and does it to chase butterflies, but, she has never even tried to jump my 5 ft fence. Addy is fantastic with people, very friendly and outgoing. And loves to play with other dogs. I heard she will chase cats though. But she loves the pack life. Addy has become a great swimmer and loves the water. She will bring me back sticks I throw in the water. She's a lot of fun! Really cute video shows how she drinks from a spigot. She is smart! Addy is great off leash and comes to my metal coaches whistle. She can be very independant. And it was challenging at times, to get her in the van if she didn't think she was ready to go! But now, it's very routine, and she leaps by me into the van and we're off without having to touch anyone. Addy actually has a come a long way riding in a vehicle, she hated it when she first got here. No experience. And she's an old hand at it now! She is good on a leash. She's a prancer, very graceful and elegant when she walks. Head up high, easy to walk, she's so tall. She knows how to use the dog door, and she seems pretty good in the house... although she gathered both of my slippers together in her dog bed asap! So I would watch that. Again, Addy was afraid of car rides when she arrived. She wouldn't even climb out of her transport vehicle when I first met her, had to lift her out. She is doing fine in my van now, jumps in and out. Addy is a well balanced girl. She's not herding dogs or people, she just loves to play, I mean LOVES to play. She will be kept busy with a hose and hard spray, she loves it. But it makes it hard to fill the waterers! She dances around when I have the water on. In the creek, she wasn't too sure of herself at first, but next thing I knew, she was bouncing and jumping and splashing like a maniac, she had so much fun! I think she was diving for things she saw at the bottom of the clear creek. And didn't understand this crazy stuff she dunked her muzzle in to get whatever it was she just had to get. The pack walks are awesome, she sleeps like a baby rock when we get home. I looked on the floor of the van on the way back, wish I could have taken a photo... she and Abbot were on the floor of the van looking like jigsaw puzzle pieces, locked together asleep. It was adorable. She gets downright cozy with other dogs.

      Breed: Australian Kelpie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Australian Kelpie / Mixed (short coat). Cillian, 18 mo., neutered, Cattle Dog/Kelpie mix Cillian is in a predicament and needs a new home with a little less social activity than his current home. He is about 18 mo. old, neutered, weighs about 55 lbs. and, best guess, is Cattle Dog/Kelpie. He’s located in Redwood City and here’s what his current guardians have to say about him: Since he was adopted, Cillian has been living with an 11 & 13 yr. old and their parents. Every week he goes for a playdate to work out some of his boundless energy with other dogs. He always gets a good report from the staff and has fun playing with the other dogs. He has completed 2 obedience classes and knows how to sit, stay, lie down, shake and can even “fist bump”. However, his household is a very social one with people always coming and going. When he gets walked, Cillian sometimes strains at the leash and barks defensively to keep others away. He is very loyal to “his” people. He sometimes barks/pulls on his leash with some dogs as well, if they are on a walk. He has never been around cats but will chase squirrels. Much as they love him, his owners realize he is never going to be the therapy dog they were looking for and would be better off in a new home that has a little less social activity going on. Cillian would love to be in a quieter home with experienced dog owners that have the patience and understanding he needs. Could that be you? For an application to meet Cillian, email: info@cchdrescue.org. Adoption fee is $100.

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.
