Name: Buddy (and Lana!)
Age: 10 months on 6/18/16
Breed: Australian Cattledog
Weight: 27 lbs
Dog friendly: Yes
Cat friendly: Unknown, we don't have a cat and no exposure to date.
Kid friendly: So much, yes, especially Buddy. We have two boys (ages 4 & 6) and Buddy loves running around with them. Lana is a bit more timid and doesn't enjoy the roughhousing, but she is a momma bear. For example, if she notices Buddy getting too rough with the boys, she will run Buddy off.
House trained: We are about 80% there with both dogs. Neither was really house broken when they arrived as they were outside, farm dogs.
Crate trained: Yes! Both dogs sleep in their crates overnight and when we give the directive, "Kennel" - they will go in. Buddy does not mind his kennel. Lana does have some anxiety about going in her kennel (when it's not during a time that is on her normal schedule), but she will settle down within 10 minutes.
Energy level: Puppy!
History: Owner surrender
Adoption Fee: $500 for the pair
From the Foster: They say sons are the anchors of a mother's life, this duo [Buddy and Lana] are no different.
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
