Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat) : : Male (neutered) : : Adult : : Medium
Miso is a happy boy who loves people and attention! He's about 7 years old, 54-lbs and an Australian cattle dog mix. His energy level is low to moderate, and he's affectionate and eager to please. Did we mention he loves attention?
Miso walks nicely on a leash without pulling. He also loves to ride in the car and look out the window. He's currently learning basic commands, will sit for treats, and is very quiet in the house. Miso is happy to lay on dog beds, sit on your lap, lay on the couch or just snuggle. He also enjoys exploring outdoors, so will need a fenced yard. He should always be leashed when outside the house or yard, as he was known to roam in his pre-rescue life.
Miso isn't comfortable around other dogs until he gets to know them, is somewhat dog reactive, and needs to be introduced to others slowly. Reports from the shelter were that he may have been picked on by other dogs and as a result tends to react defensively. Over time though, he has improved with the dogs in his foster home. Miso would do great as an only dog or with an adult dog that's well-balanced. He hasn't met any children yet but we believe he would do very well with them. His compatibility with cats is unknown.
Prior to coming to Ewenity Farm Miso tested posted for heartworms, but has since been treated and is now heartworm-free. He is also neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, house-trained, and working on his crate-training. He's a very loving dog who deserves a chance to find a home where he's safe and loved. With a little time, patience, trust, and loving care, Miso will make a wonderful family member!
Miso is currently being fostered in Vero Beach, FL (Indian River County). For more information on our adoption process, visit the Adoption Information page on our website: www.ewenityfarm.org
