Owner's Stated Breed Mix:

Australian Cattle Dog

Dog description

Adopted May 2019. VERY food-motivated. Easy to train in some ways (will jump through hoop! has great sit, pretty good stay, will bark in response to "speak") and difficult in others (not so good on "quiet"). Intrigued by storm drains (sometimes there are raccoons in them). Does a bit of chase-chase and wrestle with other dogs at dog park, especially other ACDs and border collies. Really wants to keep her pack together, to the point of jumping at and nipping at my spouse when he is leaving early.

An Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog (at least that

Quirk

She will obediently lie down in her bed, even fall asleep and snore, yet we wake to her on our feet in our bed

Does best

She will wait for me to say "ok" before she eats from the full bowl in front of her.

Fun Story

Not so much fun as encouraging to me; over the past 10 months she has gotten so much nicer to people at the dog park. She will mooch for pets almost as much as for treats.
