Nooka is a beautiful, very sweet 8 month old Australian Cattle Dog. He is a good boy in the house and fairly good on walks. Nooka is a smart boy and already knows SIT. He is housebroken, but being young, can't hold it for over 8 hours just yet. He would do best with a fenced-in yard to run around in. He would be a great playmate for another dog. He HATES a crate, but a crate is not needed since he does well when left to roam free in the house.
If you are interested in adopting Nooka, please fill out our adoption application.
The Board of Directors has voted to prohibit the use of Invisible/Electronic fences on Blind Dog Rescue Alliance dogs. This policy will be effective immediately.
