Zinc's Info...

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

Zinc's Story...
Zinc is a very affectionate, loving and energetic boy! He loves to run, and plays rambunctiously with female dogs, but his hackles go up with unfamiliar male dogs. He wants to play more energetically with the cats than they like, but he doesn't try to herd them. He was fine the few times he's been around small children, but he hasn't had any long term exposure to any.

He is working on basic commands, and is crate trained and house broken. He hasn't quite mastered the concept of fetch, but he is very food motivated, and he wants to please. He is about one year old and weighs 45 pounds.

With his long legs and high energy level, his ideal person is a runner, or someone very active outdoors. Hanging out on the couch next to you is his favorite spot in the house, but outside he wants to run.

All of our adoptable pets have been spayed or neutered, are heart worm free, started on parasite preventatives, vaccinated, and microchipped. Dogs with special needs also have their needs evaluated and met to the best of our ability. In order to ensure that all of our dogs go to their best and last homes, we require that an adoption application and home visit is completed and approved before adopting. Our adoption contract includes a two week trial period to give you and your new family member time to adjust. His adoption fee is $350. Contact for an adoption application

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Delano 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 Delano 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 Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Delano paves the way for another one to be saved.
