Speck's Story...
Speck has never met a stranger in all of her 5-6 months. She loves people, would cuddle all day and has been quick to learn her manners, leash walking and is working on crate and house training. Speck is super sweet and will mature a more medium level dog like her mother Dixie. Speck has been chasing a tennis ball and learning to return it so that it will be thrown again. She loves to play with her toys as well and will chase a stuffed toy, grab it and bring it to you-or maybe try to initiate a game of chase with her sister.

Her bloodlines have been a part of a Texas and Tennessee family who have raised these dogs to herd cattle on their ranch since 1951. These dogs were bred to herd while still being a part of the family. NOT your typical Cattle Dogs! The family is no longer breeding these dogs and chose CTHDR to help them place these puppies as well as the Mom. Adoption applications being taken immediately-these dogs have not been in a shelter and came to us by private transportation.

This litter was raised with children and Speck would be fine with children over 8. She will need her obedience training continued in her new home and would excel in class. Speck is up to date on vaccines and will have a spay agreement requiring spay at one year of age. She has also been de-wormed and is on flea/tick and heart worm prevention.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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