Abbey's Story...
NOTE: This is a courtesy posting for another rescuer. Please do not contact ARRF, as we do not know this pet personally. See contact information below.

Abbey is a spayed female Red Tick/White Australian Cattle Dog/Pointer mix. She is just over a year and a half old and weighs about 66 pounds. She loves balls, and prefers them to treats as a reward! She loves to play catch and brings that ball right back to you. When ball time is over, it is easy to take the ball from her mouth.

This smart girl knows sit, down, and paw. She seems to be housetrained, is calm around other dogs, and is very calm for her age.

If you want to meet Abbey, come to the Department of Animal Services, 2481 Palomar Airport Road, Carlsbad 92011. Open Tuesdays - Saturdays, 9:30 am - 5:30 pm. Closed Sundays, Mondays and holidays.

Bring these numbers with you for identification:
ID: A1620522;
Tag: N742;
Kennel: N032.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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