Now available for adoption— Maisie! What do we say about Maisie? This girl is full of vim and vigor and is beautiful, don't you think? She is also 100% puppy at 10 months old. Maisie loves, loves, loves humans AND she LOVES, LOVES, LOVES other dogs, sometimes to a fault. She is a submissive girl but she is also persistent. If she meets a dog that is not interested in playtime, she will continuously try to change his/her mind! If they reprimand her, she accepts it with no argument and then comes back and asks them, "Are you really sure you don't want to play with cute, lovable me?" Maisie is, as we have said, 10 months old now and fully vetted and ready for her new home. She is crate trained, 99% house trained, spayed and microchipped. She can go to a home that has another, very chill dog or she can be an only child with just her human....and her many toys. She loves squeaky toys, hard toys, tennis balls, soft toys, but like any ACD, the soft toy will not last long, so make sure it's inexpensive!Maisie will benefit from ongoing training to become everything we know she can be. She is currently living with her fosters and four other dogs in Rio Rico with no issues....other than her persistence in wanting them all to play with her on request. She weighs in at about 40 lbs and will likely gain another 5-10 lbs as she matures. 🐾🤠🧡🐶 If interested in adopting, start by filling out an application on our website (link in bio)* Sex, Age, Weight: female, 10 months, ~40lbs* Breed/Look: Australian Cattle Dog, Red Heeler* Coat, Color: red, orange, white, tan* Location: Rio Rico, AZ* Vetted, fixed, chipped, vaccinated* House and crate trained, some obedience* Currently lives with: adult humans, dogs* Traits: friendly, playful, smart#arizonacattledogrescue #cattledog #cattledogsofinstagram #heelergram #adopt ...

Now available for adoption— Lyla! Lyla, the vivacious cattle dog mix. She is not your average pup; she's a dynamic, spirited gal who loves to herd, play, and cuddle. Lyla comes with her partner in crime, Donny, forming an inseparable duo. She is the perfect mix of wild and fun, always up for a game of fetch or a lively jog. With her active lifestyle, she'll keep you on your toes, and after all the excitement, she transforms into a cuddle bug ready for some love. Lyla is a clever girl, and if you get a bit lazy with training, she might just take advantage of the situation. Consistency is the key to keeping this smarty pants in check. She hasn't mastered the art of swimming, but she sure loves the sprinklers. Bath time, on the other hand, is not her favorite, so be ready for some negotiations. If she is not consistently socialized she gets nervous and anxious. We prefer that Lyla and Donny go to a home that can accept them both but will consider separation 🐾🤠🧡🐶 If interested in adopting, start by filling out an application on our website (link in bio)* Sex, Age, Weight: female, ~1 year old, ~30lbs* Breed/Look: Australian Cattle Dog, mix* Coat, Color: black, white* Location: Phoenix, AZ* Vetted, fixed, chipped, vaccinated* House and crate trained, some obedience* Currently lives with: adult humans, dogs* Traits: playful, #arizonacattledogrescuec#cattledogs#cattledogsofinstagramd#heelergramr#adoptelergram #adopt ...
