Barry's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Barry's Story...
Barry is a cattle dog/Australian shepherd mix with one blue eye and a short tail at least 4-5 years old - perhaps older.  He is neutered and current on shots and weighs about 40 lbs. He is crate and housetrained.   He was found running on the highway with his brother. He has an old injury to one of his front feet and holds it up at times.

He was evaluated by a certified trainer on August 28th and these were her observations:  he has a nice personality and responds to positive reinforcement (praise and treats), he is sensitive and timid and appears to have been hit at some point in his life.  He is nervous and does not respond well to the leash being pulled back.

He is a favorite of his foster mom and dad, but unfortunately she had an accident and will probably not be able to work wih him for several months, which is why we are hoping there is someone out there to give him the loving home and attention he deserves.  She says he is a gentle soul and there is nothing mean about him.  He loves people (though shy at first) and wants desperately to have his own family as his foster family has quite a few rescue dogs.   He hasn't had much training but loves to follow his foster dad around the yard and into his workshop - just to be with him.  He gets along with the other dogs but would rather be with his person.

If someone has the time to spend and work with Barry and gain his trust, we feel he would make a great companion for the right person.

Please call foster dad Joe at 575-586-0010 or Holly at 575-586-0784.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barry, a Questa Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd for sale in Questa, or seeking a Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Questa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Questa already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Questa breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Questa paves the way for another one to be saved.
