Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat) : : Female (spayed) : : Adult : : Medium
Dory needs a caretaker or foster! Won't you consider helping her get a new start?
Dory is sweet as pie and a GREAT dog!! She’s an 8 month old, 35 lbs. heeler mix who’s family moved away and dumped her at the shelter. Dory is high energy and needs an active home. She’s also SUPER snuggly and soft. Extremely intelligent and wants to please! Dory is vetted and heartworm negative.
10/23 UPDATE DORY is here!! She is a very active girl and is super friendly with all dogs!! She will need a dog that can actively play back with her! She is submissive and needs guidance with boundaries just like a puppy would!! She is very responsive and clearly wants to learn and be a good dog!! Housebroken, cratetrained. She knows sit. She comes when called, and does want to be with her people. Fenced yard will be necessary and no small children.. This is a dog that will be perfect for kayaking, hiking, jogging partner. Who knows?? Maybe she is the dog to go to the Canine biathalon??
Dory is ready for her foster to adopt /adoptive home. I would say no cats, as she loves motion. She may be perfect for agility, lure coursing or other sports. Loves toys and has toy drive. Will benefit from manners class and her leash walking skills need perfecting. Able to share food and toys at this writing. Fostered in Bradenton
