DescriptionAustralian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler "short coat"
Breezy is a purebred 1yo cattledog we rescued from a rural shelter. She came to rescue completely feral. Never been handled by humans before, never been on leash before, never been in a house before, etc. As a result, she needs a special home. In her foster home, she's learned to be crate-trained, she's learned how to walk on leash, has even gone for a few hikes and done great! She gets along great with other dogs, and it is REQUIRED she go to a home with another dog. She looks to other dogs for guidance, confidence, and support. She's fine with indoor cats. She has discovered toys (and things that aren't dog toys..) and thinks it's the best thing ever to shred things. She will need a quiet, gentle, adult ONLY home (NO kids!) who will continue to help grow her confidence. She is skittish, and still prefers not to be touched by humans, so needs someone who understands and respects that, but is learning to be tolerant (and once in a while pretends to enjoy it) if it's sometimes necessary. If you're looking for a social and affectionate companion for yourself, Breezy is NOT the dog for you. If you're looking for a friend for your dog to hang out with and go on hikes with, that's all Breezy needs. She's a sweet, great girl, for the right house. Her best friend is another young female cattledog, her foster home calls them "double trouble". ;) Please, no apartments, and solid escape-proof fenced yard required.
