Has it been enrolled in obedience training?
Yes – pet smart and personal at home help


EXPOSURE/ CHILDREN INFO :
How does the animal react to strangers? Depends on situation – for most part harmless- Excited/ barks… will nip/ herd to get attention .Yes barks at door knocking
She pulls at times on leash to get to what she is interested in. Loose leash walking still needs to be worked on
- does she settle or remain on guard ?
On leash she will settle when another dog approaches. She then crawls and inches { herding genetics } up to them to investigate smells etc.

Is it good with children of all ages? Not sure as doesn’t live with kids. Based on her high herding instincts we feel no younger than 8yrs old if they are dog savvy- otherwise teens. Kids need to be aware of her instincts so not as to trigger her
What ages of children was it living with? n/a. They children she has seen on walks she has been accepting and calm. We ensure they are respectful and ask to approach first.
Kids- has she been exposed to any kids ? on walks etc?- her reaction ?
From the limited times she has seen kids it has been a calm situation with a quick pet or two. Each child so far has asked permission to pet and say hi before doing so. We do not quite know if it would be a different around kids who are overly excited to see our dog.
You indicate a home with kids to keep her busy ?- what age to do you think she would do best with ? – teens?…. I think older children to teens yes – so 8+ - an age old enough to understand a dog and how to be careful with it if needed. Should be dog savvy, have a dog savvy- breed exp home. She should never be faulted for her actions of herding as they are genetic traits.

Has it been exposed to livestock or horses? No

Is it good with cats?Yes
Is it good with dogs? For the most part“- She is great off leash while we walk around through trails – will not go more than 10 feet away from us before looking back to assure all is ok –
Do certain type of dogs set her excitement/ reaction off ?- her reaction ?
We haven’t quite figured out what dogs set her off/vise versa. 80% of the time she acts submissive and rolls over allowing them to come to her. But sometimes a dog approaching her will set her off – breed, sex, situation – we haven’t quite figured out yet as it seems to be at random.

BEHAVIOURS/ PERSONALITY/ ENERGY INFO :
Any possession with food/ space/ toys towards people or other pets? Nothing like that no
Has the animal ever shown unwanted behaviours/ aggression to anyone or anything? Not aggression- but redirects her focus/energy/ targeting d/t high herding instincts and over excitement when she has too much Energy bottled up and doesn’t know what to do with it . - Most definitely a herding behavior we have noticed – if we try jogging with her she tries to herd us by lightly nipping at our ankles
Has the animal ever bitten in the past?- Not d/t aggression- herding yes and mouthing/ nipping when over excited.- Too excited when playing – or looking for our attention.
What is the animal’s general temperament? Hyper, active, energetic, protective, independent

Are there any behavioural problems? And what are causes ? Yes – D/t her energy and lack of outlets- Again – really comes back to built up energy and tension stuck in a cage for long hours. She likes to talk back if not wanting to listen- If she doesn’t want to do something (ie: a command) she can talk and bark at you as if a teenager getting mad at the parent

-Separation issues? No issues when left alone at home (i.e no barking or whining) When people are present she does want to be around and visit each person. Will bark if you she is not able to do that.


The best home for Majix: is someone / a family that is active. Her energy needs must be met.. so she doesn't get frustrated with too much pent up energy and becomes active in unwanted behaviours.
She needs a home where she will not be on her own for 9hrs a day.
Older children are possible if exp with herding breed behaviours.
A breed exp home/ someone who has exp and understands the genetics of a herding breed and not blame her for her genetics. She needs some training to know when/ where certain behaviours are ok.
A home with older kids is required d/t her herding genetics.
She would love a fenced yard, and space to run around and blow off steam. A running buddy, someone who is active for biking, rollerblading would be a great outlet for her. She will need exposure and training to learn that herding is not permitted with certain activities.
She is a smart smart girl... and is a quick learner.!! Accessing training for bonding and mental stimulation for her is highly advised.

We welcome your application for consideration .

Please read ** ALL** the information provided below on the process to
save time and facilitate the process in a smooth manner.

The adoption fee does NOT cover the cost of vetting or supplies for these animals - If you cannot afford the adoption fee
(that is a fraction of actual REDUCED VETTING expenses incurred) then you should reconsider adopting.
These animals deserve forever homes, good food, regular vet care, and emergency care as needed.
Pets should never be euthanized by their owners simply based on financial consideration when something goes wrong.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Majix- ADOPTION PENDING, a Lucknow 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 Lucknow, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in Lucknow.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lucknow 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 Lucknow 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 Lucknow paves the way for another one to be saved.
